Get Out and Play!
The August 2014 Freebie Challenge

.

This one’s for you, Jaderail. In an ideal world, you would have been here, taking part. We’ll miss you.

.

“The thrill of victory ... and the agony of defeat ... the human drama of athletic competition”
- ABC’s Wide World of Sports

Play ball! Drop the puck! Shoot some hoops! Throw some horseshoes! Jog! Bike! Ski! Fish! Barnstorm! It’s time for the folks in your runtime to get out and play!

Show us people outside (or in an arena, or fishing or playing D&D the way Jaderail used to) having fun together, playing with - or against - each other. Races, ball games, motorsports, RPGs (tabletop or LARP); they’re all fair game.


THE RULES

The Rules are in the usual thread, except that I’m exercising my powers as host to require at least eight freebies, not ten. Use more if you want.

SPECIAL RULE THIS MONTH: Back in the June Freebie Challenge, I entered a render where each freebie came from a different site - ten different sites in all. I’m not going to force folks to go that far, but I am going to insist that you use freebies from at least three different sites in each entry this month.


THE PRIZES

As usual, DAZ3D is giving GCs to the creators of the first-, second-, and third-place entries. I’ll step into the very large shoes that Jaderail has left behind (without filling them), and offer GCs to the creators of the Honourable Mentions.

music2u4u has kindly offered his bass boat on a trailer for the HMs, and his old woods creek bridge for everyone who enters.

I’ve commissioned a little something: a badminton racket and a shuttlecock, both textured. It isn’t much, but it’s something I just can’t find anywhere else. The first-, second-, and third-place finishers will get copies.


To recap:

First Place: $15 GC from DAZ3D, Badminton racket and shuttlecock set from me.

Second Place: $12 GC from DAZ3D, Badminton racket and shuttlecock set from me.

Third Place: $8 GC from DAZ3D, Badminton racket and shuttlecock set from me.

Honorable Mentions (×2): $5 GC from me, Bass boat on a trailer from music2u4u

Everybody: old woods creek bridge from music2u4u


THE REFEREES

Kismet2012 and music2u4u have agreed to be a judge this month. I’m still looking for at least one more volunteer.


THE CHANGE-UP

We have a special “pre-season competition” as well!

Get Out and Watch!
The August 2014 Freebie Mini-Challenge

Some folks just won’t get out and play.

This five-day mini-challenge is for the couch potatoes in your runtime. Show us somebody watching other people play (live or on TV).

The usual rules apply, with my usual change to requiring eight freebies (not ten) and this month’s special rule that you have to use freebies from at least three different sites in each entry.

I’m donating a $10 GC for the winner.

The mini-contest closes at 23:59 Daz Time August 5.


THE BANNER

I apologize for the slap-dash look of the banner. I was pressed for time, and distracted last week by Jaderail’s passing… Excuses, not reasons, for the poor showing. I know.

Dollygirl did this last month, and I’m going to turn it into a tradition. What I used in the banner:
Aiko 4: DAZ3D, http://www.daz3d.com/aiko-4-base and http://www.daz3d.com/victoria-4-2-base
Rei Hair: Kozaburo, http://digitalbabes.jp/dload/ReiHair.html
Sleeveless tennis wear for A4: Redviper, http://www.sharecg.com/v/65704/
Badminton racket and shuttlecock: robkelk (commissioned from Awe 3D), August 2014 Freebie Challenge prize

A larger version of the banner image, so folks can see the racket and shuttlecock. I’m sure you can do a better job on the pose… if you win.

This is a very appropriate theme.  I found this post on Jaderail’s DeviantArt page.  He loved the outdoors.  Here is a link to his page if anyone wants to check it out:  http://jaderail.deviantart.com/

It is not necessary to be a DeviantArt member to see Jaderail’s page.

Now let’s go out and have some fun!!!

The Primitives, a year in the life. The insperation.

As promised I have found a reason for this space on my page. And here it is.

Until 9-7-1999 I was a healthy man in my late fourties who had spent nearly a lifetime as a primitive survivalist. On that date, etched into my mind so well, I found myself in the ICU of one of the best hospitals in the deep south of the U.S. My Survivalist adventures ended on that day due to a nasty bug that had found a home in my blood and did the best it could to kill me. I was left a Dailysis patent and nearly crippled from the damage the infection had done to me before it was stopped. I was told I came within minutes of death.

My passion for Primitive life never left me just because I am no longer able to go on my trips into the woods and live the way that I find a challenge to not only my body but my mind. I started my adventures into primitive life as a boy of 11, if my mind serves me, with my father. We would spend a week or two on our property that was mostly just a large wilderness. The seasons of the year were not considered because true survival in the wild covers all days and all seasons. I learned the skills of building shelter and starting fires the way that the primitives did. I learned to hunt, trap and fish in many if not all thier ways. I was taught which plants were ediable and in which of the seasons to gather and forage for them.

I owe my father much for taking me on those early trips and teaching me the skills that could keep me alive if I ever found myself in the need of them in my real life. I lost him before I could ever thank him. I kept learning as much about those skills and going on adventures on my own until I was no longer able. The knowledge I gained from those first trips also started a passion to know as much as possible about early man. I still read as much about them as I can to this day. This Project is my way of Honoring my father and combining my art with the skills I can no longer enjoy.

I find the last Ice Age and the peoples of that time capture my mind the most so this project is based on my Ideas of what life in that time might have been like. Please follow me and my small group through the next year of our lives. I Promise you adventure, love, life, death and surprises on this journey.

Thanks, Kendall.

Casual pointed out a typo to me, in the “Prizes” section. Jaderail didn’t have “very large shows” (at least, not here), he had “very large shoes”. I’ve just fixed that in the thread.

I noticed it but didn’t want to be the one to say something.  I’ve been…ummm…let’s say admonished for correcting spelling and grammar mistakes one too many times.

erm…that’s a very impressive little badminton “birdy” you made there RK! Looks real.

I thought I would post a render of the Bass boat and trailer I will be giving to the two HMs this month. The boat is seperate from the trailer. The motor and trolling motors swival up and down for the water poses. The seats swival around completely. It has a digital fish finder too and a rope and ancore. The trailer has a raise and lower crank for parking it. (mobile RV not included)

I was told earlier by someone who knew Jaderail very close that he was more of a woods, creek, bank fisher than a boater. So, I have decided to also give a copy of my “old woods creek bridge” to ALL WHO ENTER the challenge. I will PM a link to each who do and you can go download it. I am including a render of it here (Kids not included).

R.I.P. my friend Jaderail. This is for you.

I do documentation for a living (which is one reason why I usually like simple, clean renders that might be unsuitable for this month’s Challenge). Don’t worry about hurting my feelings by pointing out a typo.

My skills aren’t that good; it was a commissioned piece. Can I post the link, or would that be against the ToS?
