    Heh, it's Friday in New Zealand!

    Okay, In the RIFTS setting, a budding orbital community watched the coming of the RIFTS in horror and made their own future, abandoning the cataclysm-shattered Earth. One part of that community, Laika Station, was Russia's base and populated by a variety of mutant animals..

    After more than 250 years in orbit, the station is under constant maintenance and repair. As you would expect, accidents happen.. conduits rupture, power fails and airlocks collapse....

    Stonemason products used: Darkstar, PropFactory Cylinder and Crates & Containers.. Rendered in DazStudio 2.3 and post-work in Photoshop CS2.

    Oh, and that's RawArt's ApeWorld Chimp on M4 wearing Epsilon as a space suit... other parts of the debris are the wrench from AntFarm's Bot Shop, a broken bottle and rusty can from The Garbage Pile, and TrekkieGrrrl's morphing kleenex..

    Ok...I have not been getting much work done the last few days working on this...but here it goes.

    Mech Enforcer
    City Ruins 1,2,3 and vehicles

    Rawn

    Mech Wars!


    This is why I don't enter contests very often. I just can't compete with renders of this quality. Way to go Rawn! ;-)

    I usually feel this way as well, and then my self-critisizing starts and .... oh well. I am determined to try this one tho. (Now if hubby will just hide WOW for me )

    As I am Rendering my scene I noticed the Graffiti on one of stonemasons products I am using has a cuss word. Will that violate the terms?

    I don't understand this item of the rules:

    "IMPORTANT Please make sure you have a valid e-mail address accessible from your profile. Be sure that there is an “Email” link at the bottom of your post."

    How do we verify that an email address is accessible from our profile?

    Is this asking us to put our email address in the forum posting with our render? I don't really want my personal email address visible in the forum. Please clarify.

    I guess Stefan is using the old contest rules, and this was a clause in those. On this new forum no one can access your email, in fact members cannot even use the email a member facility from their profile.

    We certainly do recommend that members do not display their email in forum posts, and in fact normally actively remove any email addresses that we do see posted, for members protection.

    Hmmm, now I'm curious...


    On a more "on topic" note; I'm working on a few things although I fear I'll not have much luck at competing against all the awesomeness that is erupting in this thread. Ah well maybe the horrible bit monster will eat the other submissions and I'll win by default. ( a guy can dream right?)

    This one was inspired by The Catwoman in The Batman of Shanghai from the Dc Nation Shorts on cartoon network

    I took Both of the Streets of Asia and Superimposed one on top of the other. This is pretty much DS4.5 with some light post work and paint to rescale it to make it uploadable

    I really wish there were a product called Streets of Asia Construction Kit or Streets of Asia components

    Bad Kitty is the tittle of this one
