--Closed Voting Thread!--Aug. Carrara Monthly Challenge: SIZE MATTERS!--Closed Voting Thread!!--
This challenge is meant to help depict one of Carrara's great strengths. The ability to use its tools to create either really close and intimate scenes, or really massive world size scenes, or even combinations of the two. So this challenge is all about depicting scale. It doesn't matter if it's a giant scale or a microscopic scale. What your image needs to do is to make the viewer feel the scale. It should almost have an emotional impact and make the viewer say, wow!
Extra special thanks to DAZ 3D and RingoMontfort for sponsoring this challenge!
To see how these amazing peices of art were created using Carrara, please visit the WIP thread! It is not required, but it would be nice if you could include any comments about the entries when casting your vote!
Voting begins now!
The rules for voting are fairly simple.
Each person may vote for up to three entries.
Votes are per entry. If an artist has two images you wish to vote for, you may use a vote for each one, leaving you with one remaining vote to cast.
An artist may place in the top three, plus HM (Honorable Mention) only once. If an artist has enough votes to place more than once, the entry with the most votes will be the one that is placed, and the entry with the next highest votes will be moved up.
If there is a tie for any spot in the top three (plus HM,) I have asked three respected and objective forum members to act as tie breakers. I have asked that they refrain from voting during the regular voting period. If the same artist places in the top three with their entries tied, the above mentioned forum members will break the tie.
If there is no tie, I will give the tie breakers a chance to place their votes. If their votes cause a tie, I'm screwed. ;-)
Anonymous votes will be accepted with good cause. Please PM me if you think you need to vote anonymously. An example would be if a forum moderator or admin wishes to vote without giving an appearance of favoritism. There may be other issues as well.
I've asked the very talented RingoMontfort to name the Honorable Mention. Feel free to suggest your own, as it may help him with a very difficult task.
If there are any questions, please ask!
Important addendum to the prize list: 1st Place winner gets the horror- I mean HONOR of hosting the next challenge. The winner gets to choose the theme and the rules. I tell ya' It's enough to make an atheist pray. Just kidding, it's almost not that bad.
