This years challenge I'm calling "THE YEAR OF THEMES."  

Each month has a different theme to it.  The list is inspired by my friend's daughter who is a photographer.  She wanted to make the list this year and I decided to use the same list for my 3D challenge.  The themes should prove a good test of our 3D creating skills.  It will be interesting to see how everyone interprets the themes into 3D.  ENJOY!

(to view the 2013 renders please visit… http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/27391/ )
(to view the 2014 renders please visit… http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/33447/ )

(to view the 2016 renders please visit… http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/68350/ )

There are only 2 rules…
ONLY 1 RENDER ALLOWED per PER PERSON per month and
(edit... this is only a suggestion) IT MUST BE A COMPLETELY “NEW” RENDER specifically for this challenge!!!

p.s… to keep the thread from getting too long... no WIPs please… THANK YOU!

ANY 3D program can be used!

Here’s the list.. HAVE FUN!!!

Jan – Nature
Feb – Reflections
Mar – Low angle
Apr - Colour
May - Frame
Jun - Edge
Jul – Close up
Aug - Landscape
Sep – Black and white
Oct – Look up
Nov – Time of day
Dec - Lights

As per previous years... I will also be doing a photography challenge with my husband, a friend and his daughter... using the same themes... FUN FUN FUN :)  Anyone that enjoys Photography is welcome to join us.  We post our photos on FLICKER.  https://www.flickr.com/groups/12ayear/discuss/72157676681368406/

To give folks a flavour of the original photo challenge that sparked off this thread please take a look at the photographic thread at http://www.talkphotography.co.uk/threads/a-father-vs-daughter-12-for-2013-challenge.457147/

    @SimonJM  hahahahahaha....love it. 

    @Bigh  A beautiful peaceful scene but I will pass on testing the strength of the ice.

  • isidornisidorn Posts: 1,460

    That ice looks sturdy enough. But as always, and especially in nature, looks can decieve!

    Happy New Year, everyone! 

    Thanks, Llola, from me too. I like the themes this year!

    Simon, nice Kittah! I was just looking at the new (old) cat poses that I finally got from DAZ last week when I thought of you and Kittahs and came to check out the new RENDER A MONTH Challenge. laugh

    LOL, Bigh, the ice looks...cold. I'm glad to have a blanket wrapped around me.

    Kismet2012 - beautiful! I feel inspired now. Thank you.

    Nature takes it back.

    I had something on the same theme in mind. smiley But we'll see what I come up with. More often than not, I'm ending up with something completely different than my original plan.

    When that happens to me they usually end up being better than I had originally imagined.

    Haha I know that feeling! As I am trying to get a hold on Iray I will try the nature scene in Iray as well, hope that it will be sympathetic to my cause...

  • Happy New Year everyone!

    Great renders already!

    Like the themes, will try to participate as time permits.

  • Llola LaneLlola Lane Posts: 3,988

    HI Tulipe... wonderful to see you about... Please do join us :)

    ALL are welcome....

    Remember we have a whole month... no need to rush... I suppose we will get similar pieces of art with each of the themes... but... no one will make EXACTLY the same thing... We all use different scenery... animals... plants... etc... sooo.... Let's just have fun... and not worry about if we are doing something the same as someone else... It will take the pressure off... winks.... LET'S HAVE FUN this year!!!  Enjoy!
