The challenge this month is to create an image Based on Music

-  The intent is to make a image representing music for you.It could be an image of a band like Black Sabath, The Clash, Men With Out Hats, Josie and the Pussy Cats, It could be and individual playing in a Bar such a local talent or someone like Lenard Cohen. How about Boy Goerge or any of the newer performers. It could also be a portrait of them performing.


The intent is to allow some of the newer users to Carrara to create and display thier artwork from Carrara

Basic rules will be:

1. - Participants must use the Carrara to set up and render the Image.

4.- Postwork is allowed, but must not be the highlight of the image.
