    Hmmm...while this is certainly passable as amateur fan art of the Star Wars universe It has some flaws that makes it less than satisfactory. The three robocops behind the girl look positively bored. The beam that is busy shooting up the building should be brighter at the origin. Those are minor issues though. The biggest flaw is that it does an okay job of showing off Star Wars but very little to show off StoneMason. In fact if you didn't tell us there were StoneMason products used we would not have known it...


    Hehe, now that we've got your ego deflated again I'll get serious and say nice job and of course I wasn't serious!

    "Just a Childhood Memory"

    Stonemason Product: Derelict Corners

    50's Waitress Blouse, Skirt, Shoes for Genesis
    Millinium Cat
    Genesis Leah....morphed (obviously)...Leah textures
    Various trash can props
    Curler Hair

    I wanted to demonstrate how Stonemason sets can take closeups and still look good. Also it was to demonstrate how flexible the Genesis model and clothing can be. This was rendered in Reality (latest version). Post work was the smoke and some color adjustment.

    Wow some amazing images here and fierce competition to boot. Very inspiring to see too and even some great Bryce renders from chohole, David and Horo...niceeeeee.

    Horo thanks for the Euro Train model idea, that came in handy.

    I have borrowed an old P3 desktop to get a render done for this competition and boy I have had fun getting things to work but I managed to get DS3A working.

    Hopefully I will have it posted soon. Now to think of a second one to do. :)

    Oh yes this will be a fierce competition. The prizes? Almost too generous (the whole stonemason catalogue:bug:)
    I hope to have my first entry ready soon.

    First Entry

    Title: “But, it’s got caught in something!”
    Stonemason’s model: Generic Sci-Fi Corridor (GSFC)
    Post work: Photoshop Elements 2.0
    Software: Bryce 7.0 Pro
    Story: Two kids innocently stumble across an old ‘corridor’ long abandoned on a beach where their kite has blown into it. It's obviously got caught in some 'thing’, but has it just snagged upon a grid of the floor, or is there a sinister connotation to the end-story?

    Awesome render Jamahoney

    Oh dear..that is such a nice comment...make's it well worth entering. I'm amazed here at all the above preceeding entries, so good luck to all - the prizes are eye-candy. Thank you so much JohnDelaquiox. Don't know if you have entered yourself, but the best of luck if so. Certainly worth the time making renders (or 'works' as I like to call them).
