    Hurry up! I'd love to see what you do! There is under five hours now, I think. Unless tonight isn't the deadline.

    it is tonight, I'm going to call 81/2 hours (give or take a couple minutes) the mini contest will be closed. that way everyone will have a given time frame. I will be asleep by then so I will check posts the next morning and then make a decision sometime that day and post the winner by evening cuz I will be gone and busy most of the day tomorrow. I will try to hurry up and get my decision out, or better yet, does everyone want to do a vote for the winner??? I can let all of you decide and I can break the tie if there is any??? let me know what you thing, it could be fun. But only if you guys are going to actually vote. Let me know today and we will go from there

    NAE Turf War - Revisited

    The first one looked too empty. Plus I found some awesome snow & ice shaders from Calida (DS only) in my runtime.

    too bad you did that one second, but with the trees you might not have gotten it done in under an hour. they take forever even at low rez


    That second one to 8 1/2 hours to render at 1280x960. The snow flakes are 3 planes with transparencies place in front of the camera.

    you know.... if you wanted to..... you could switch things up and do it a little different.... maybe I might let you do it for the mini. hmmmm.... a thought

    It took me almost an hour just to position the trees; let alone anything else. Which is why it's a NAE.

    12:42 by my count. Would've been sooner, but the snow wasn't falling right.

    There seems to be a case of antisnowmanism going on ....

    'snow mystery.

    Yup. Where it says 12:10pm. I'd opened daz and the two 'slower' folders by that post, then went for it. :)

    thanks B, now I just need one more.....volunteer

    ok Jeeperz, I have been lurking on this...just wanted to see if someone else was going to try to judge, but since I am going through my "once a year" blahs with 3d, and don't want to render anything, or look for freebies, I can judge. This will give me time to revitalize my love for 3d art. I get this every year, just wanna quit and throw it all away...bored...no imagination...no drive..same ole' same ole'...it usually takes a big shot of Dorsey to re-inspire me, but he has not been around like he usually is, so I will chill and judge if you want me.

    :-)

    thanks music, I have my judges. Now no more downer talk, "SMACKS MUSIC 3 TIMES WITH A 3D NOODLE" now stop that kind of talk

    Hehehe...it's like when an animal goes into heat!...I have no control over it.

    Smiles and eats the 3d noodle!

    :-)

    OKAY! Now that we've lured Music out of the lurky blahs and into a judge's throne, I have a snowman standing by.

    My time now 9:14pm Equatorial Aardvark Time. Back in an hour or less. Hopefully.


    tick tick tick

    IT'S A BOMB....RUN!

    OH...nah just Dorsey....false alarm folks.

    MINI-CONTEST ENTRY

    Not as funny as I set out to do, but I realised when I was finished why, and why I came up with this scene -- there is literally no food in my fridge! (Waiting for my wife to return from The Hunt.)

    Freaky Snow Baby from RuntimeDNA, fridge by Wayne Gribdberg at WG3D.

    Hey...someone ate Dorsey's snowman!.....it's that darn EMU again...GET HIM!

    mini contest is now officially closed, I will post the winner and 2 runners up later today.
    thanks everyone that joined in the fun. Only 1 newcomer this time. maybe next year some of you will enter the mini instead of lurking.

    This was really a tough decision, each render had it's own reasons that I liked it. Doing a render in under an hour is a tough challenge. But I just had to pick the one I like the best.

    WINNER is assassin_21, I don't know how you can put so much into one render in under an hour. Not just content but the expression on the one snowman looking at the one in pieces and the fact that the baby had the perfect expression for someone who had just knocked over something and was running away. Snow and all.

    2nd, was perlk with the deer and snowman. again the reflection on the pond, the sunset in the back. very well put together

    3rd, and this was close, Dorseyland's snowbaby in the fridge, the shadows and lighting were great, simple yet powerful

    and to BWSman & ZamuelNow, I really liked both of your renders, well done for the time limit. the others just grabbed me a bit more. Better luck next time.
    thanks to all who participate. it was fun. I will get the $5 GC to you as soon as I can assassin, I will need your e-mail addy so I can give you the code
    pm's for the prize from music will be coming in your pm box soon

    :bug: wow. That was unexpected. I feel elated and embarressed at once.
    I didn't do much with the figures to be honest, the three in the middle came with poses that I tweaked (mostly the middle one), the one at the side was just placed, and the baby had his arms and head tweaked up/back. The snow took much of my time with shading and moving ... hmm, when I put it that way, it sounds like I did flip all ... it probably helps that I've my snowmen and their poses all in one folder. Easy access, clear idea of what I wanted ... like I said, once I posted, I just went for it *clickclickdragclick* :red:

    Congrats Perlk and Dorsey. I loved both your images. :)

    Thank you very much, Jeeperz and Music! Thank you too, Assassin, and congratulations as well to you and Perlk.

    At the moment I'm getting bounced off 4Shared after entering the password (tried 2012 too instead of 212, just in case). Got a feeling it's just a temporary glitch on their end, though, and will try again tomorrow.

    Music, you remember the song "Nantucket Sleighride" by Mountain? Gonna need a whale ...
