  • 29th Daz3D Bryce Render challenge

  •  

  • Now Sponsored by Daz 3D

  •  

  •  Theme for this challenge is   ~~~    "Reflection"  ~~~



Another theme with so many different interpretations


  1. The throwing back by a body or surface of light, heat, or sound without absorbing it.  ie   .'The reflection of light’
  2. An amount of light, heat, or sound that is reflected by a body or surface.    ie   ‘the reflections from the street lamps gave them just enough light’
  3. An image seen in a mirror or shiny surface.  ie   ‘Marianne surveyed her reflection in the mirror’
  4.  A thing that is a consequence of or arises from something else.  ie . ‘a healthy skin is a reflection of good health in general’
  5.  A thing bringing discredit to someone or something.  ie.  ‘It is no reflection on your skills or performance at all.’
  6.  Serious thought or consideration.  ie.   ‘he doesn't get much time for reflection’
  7. An idea about something, especially one that is written down or expressed.  ie   ‘reflections on human destiny and art’
  8. Etc  etc

                                                                                                                 The Choice is yours
                                                                                                        Your imagination is the only limit


This thread is the WIP thread, so you can post here to show us how things are coming along before the render is transferred to the actual Contest thread for judging. You don't have to do that.we collect up all the finished ones and make the thread, with each render given a number and title, but no artist name shown, so it's a blind judging thread for the judging panel.

 

Rules

  •  
    All renders must be new renders.
  •  
    You can enter up to 3 renders.
  •  
    You must abide by the DAZ 3D forum TOS
  •  
    Imported content is allowed, but the render must be obviously a Bryce render.
  •  
    Post Work permitted, but please keep it to a minimum.
  •  
    Rules may be changed for subsequent Challenges, depending on the theme and the person who has selected it.
  •  

Please don't post your entry renders anywhere else until after the Challenge is judged, as judging is done in a blind judging thread, so the Judges don't know who has done which image.

Challenge ends May 31st 2018:- Midnight DAZ 3D time

DAZ 3D Sponsorship, in the form of Store credit

Ist place $30     2nd place $20     3rd place $15

In addition DAZ 3D Store Credit will be given to the people whose renders are selected as the Honourable mentions,
$10 for each of 3 honorable mentions

We will also be offering a special prize for the render judged the best from a Bryce New User. DAZ 3D will add $10.

    I'll start the ball rolling for this challenge. Something I was working on for a while now and completed the render this morning by changing the water material to get the reflections.

    That's super, Mermaid...it shows that you put a lot of time into it (the haze really sends the distance back).

    First entry
    Title: Reflected Reflexions

    Reflecting Reflexions
    A 25 segment Moebius between two vertical mirroring ground planes and the GWL in front of the camera to get a 330 degrees view angle. Tiny scene with infinite depth.

    It's like a complex engineering project, Horo (oh, and thanks for burning the eyes out of my sockets with your colours cheeky ).

    Oh, a tricky topic.
    @ Mermaid: Just wonderful. A good start for this topic.

    @ Horo: Very complex and an unusual idea, but an impressive result.

     

    My first entry. I tried to think outside the box, I know, it's a bit scary, but it was my first idea ...

     

    Trying to reflect my thoughts.:

    mermaid010 : very nicely done

    Horo : impressive image, great idea.

    drachenlords : scary reflection, great render.

  • HoroHoro Posts: 6,014

    Jamahoney - thank you Jay. I had to render it with max. ray depth 20 because this is no an astronomical picture and I didn't want a black hole in it. devil

    drachelords - thank you. Very cool idea and excellently done. Scientists are currently trying to figure out where in the brain the thoughts are located, though not (yet) in this fashion.

    ed3d - thank you.

    adbc - thank you.

    Horo.... this is really wonderful. What a nice Idea, to put the life in his Eyes....

  • drachenlordsdrachenlords Posts: 299

    Thanks for the nice comments, ed3d, Jay, adbc, Horo and Yellow Pen.

     

    @ Horo - what for a great idea and well done. Simply Cool!

  • HoroHoro Posts: 6,014

    Yellow Pen - thank you.

    drachenlords - thank you. Hey, you're brainy guy (Trying to reflect my thoughts) inspired me.

  • HansmarHansmar Posts: 1,240

    Wow, great theme. Wonderful start by Mermaid. Lovely to see an abstract among the entries, Horo and very funny gimmick with the skull. Drachenlords: that's scary indeed. Glad there are no worms or spiders crawling out of that skull.

    Now, I have to reflect on this theme, before entering, I guess.

  • drachenlordsdrachenlords Posts: 299

    @ Horo: Really? That's cool. Glad if my strange idea emerges with you a better ;-)

    @ Hansar: Fortunately, the man just did not think of spiders or worms * lol *

    Pheeew, Horo, have you been browsing my facebook selfies (ooops, shouldn't mention FB data in these current circumstances  wink ).

    Yeah, Drachenlords, very imaginative!

    Neat, Yellow Pen...challenging us to flip our perspective.

    Yellow Pen, great idea. A standard type reflection picture, with a vague 'monster'. Well done.

    My first one, by pure coincidence, also contains a dragon. You may think dragonsfire is bad to experience, but this is a dragonshout. Its very disorienting, they say. Of course, I used some reflections in this piece. Hope you can see some.
