New User's Contest - November 2012
Sponsored by DAZ 3D and Mada

Are you new to the 3D World? Are you at the beginning stages of learning 3D rendering? Have you been around for a little bit but feel you could benefit from some feedback or instruction? Have you been around awhile and would like to help other members start their creative journey? Well then come and join the fun as we host our newest contest...

Autumn Celebration / Thankfulness

Intent: To enjoy the Autumn season and show what you are thankful for.

It is Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, a time of harvest and giving thanks. This months contest is about celebrating the Autumnal harvest season and or just showing what you are thankful for.

Since an area of my expertise is in post work and image composition, I will be posting some post work tips through out the month. Post work is encouraged but not required. Most of all have fun and enjoy.

For a list of the current contest rules, please see this thread:


When working on your submissions, if you would like to get feedback as you work or before posting your final image, please post your image to the WIP THREAD. People will be popping in to the WIP THREAD to give you some critique and advice on your entry and help along the way. Please keep all comments on entries etc to the WIP THREAD as well because comments or requests for help/feedback/advice will be removed from the contest thread and merged into the WIP THREAD. This thread is only for posting final contest submissions.

For those veterans of the forums that would like to help, because this contest is designed for the beginner to learn from, we will be randomly selecting posts offering helpful tips and/or critiques to receive a special voucher as well so whether you are a seasoned artist or an aspiring one, there is fun for everyone!

"We would like to thank Mada who has graciously decided to sponsor this months contest" She will be awarding a special prize to the winners of this months "Autumn"contest. To view some of Mada's items please see her store front here Mada's Store

Closing Date: November 30th 2012
