  • 32nd Daz3D Bryce Render challenge

  •  

  • Now Sponsored by Daz 3D

  •  

  •  Theme for this challenge is   ###  "In The Dark Of The Night"  ###



                                                                           Another theme with so many different interpretations
It can just be nighttime, it can be scary, or spooky full of ghosts or things that go bump in the night.  Or it can be a nice starry starry night, or nights can be romantic.



                                                                                                                 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 Nov 30th 2018:- Midnight DAZ 3D time

DAZ 3D Sponsorship, in the form of Store credit

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

    Don't think I've ever been first to submit... Haven't been around to participate recently so while I'm here, I'll drop this one off. smiley

    Title: Dragon In The Shadows

    Daz's Millenium Dragon & David & Horo's candle from a Christmas freebie years ago.

    Lit entirely by a sphere light placed in the candle flame and set to 'Ranged' with shadows softened.

  • WOW, Dave, cool idea and well done!

    My first Entry:

    Go to Wallhalla

    I could use Dave's wonderful moon right here. I have partially made it transparent to him, so that he better integrated into the sky. Thanks again.

    Drachenlords: That's another very fine render. Amazing how realistic you made the fire look!

  • HenryhorHenryhor Posts: 140

    Very convincing fire.

    Thank you all for the nice comments.

    The fire is a combination of the Pro Mats, my own mat and two 2D Planes with a fire picture standing in the boat.
    On the sail, i created an alpha map for the holes in Photoshop and an ambience map with the flames, before assigning it to Mat as the sail in Bryce. In addition two Spheres with fire mat on the sail and it looked quite good.

    Very nice drachenlords.

    Reminds me of the 1958 Vikings film with Tony Curtis and Kirk Douglas.

    Watched it when I was about 8 or 9, and I cried when they sent the ship out and set it on fire. crying

    Now, that's a send-off, Drachenlords yes

    I remember that film, Stuart...especially when Douglas, who usually did his own stunts, did a dance across the oars - (YouTube link). Tom Cruise would be jealous wink.
