RiverSoft Art Second Anniversary Contest

April 18th is the second anniversary of my first release as a Daz PA!  It has been almost two years since I first started!  If I thought the first year was amazing, this second year has been even more awesome!  Thank you so very much! smiley My very first release as a published artist was my "Essential Poses for Centaur 7 Male".  With the generous support of everyone at Daz, the others PAs, and the community, it has truly been an amazing ride.  I can't believe how far I've come and how much my life has changed, and it is all because of your support.  I want to thank each and every one of you for your support and for making this an amazing two years.  In honor of my second anniversay, and as a way to give back to this great community, I am having my second annual contest! 

Rules

Submission thread is here.  Please submit to this thread one image where you have used RiverSoft Art products (Note that you are allowed to change your image later, but there may only be one entry considered for your submission by contest deadline)  The image should be something new made for the contest.  There is no theme, except that the image must have used a RiverSoft Art product (including those with SF-Design like the Skin Doctor series or other collaborators.  It can even be the clothing/hair converter series with Sickleyield though the story must be very strong with these) in it or to help make it (please follow forum guidelines).  Since a lot of my products are scripts, please include a description about how the product(s) was used and why you think the products made such a difference or such an impact on your image.  Submissions will be judged on the image and the text.  If you tell a strong tale about how RiverSoft Art products helped you, even behind the scenes, you could win (Note that this means that if you used pose presets created by using Assembly Line, for example, that is a valid submission, though the text becomes much more important to your submission).  Anyone may enter.  One submission per person.  Since I didn't get a lot of submissions from PAs last year, there is no PA Category this year.

Due Date

Your image and text must be submitted by Monday, April 15, 2019, Midnight US Eastern Time.  I will judge the submissions for first and second place.  On April 16th, a survey will be posted for a "People's Choice Vote," where the community can vote on the best submission for a special "People's Choice Award".  Winners will be announced April 18th.

Prizes

  • First Place Winner (Judged by RiverSoft Art) - Winner's choice of 2 RiverSoft Art products (where RiverSoft Art is the sole creator of the product).  No PA entries considered.
  • Second Place Winner (Judged by RiverSoft Art) - Winner's choice of 1 RiverSoft Art product (where RiverSoft Art is the sole creator of the product).  No PA entries considered.
  • Peoples Choice Winner - Winner's choice of 1 RiverSoft Art product (where RiverSoft Art is the sole creator of the product).  No PA entries considered.

I think last year was a lot of fun and we got some great entries.  I am hoping to repeat the success this year!  I look forward to seeing what everyone will create!  smiley  Thank you again for an amazing two years!

    @RiverSoftArt  I think I have most of your scripts ,cause they are so helpful ,still learning to use 'em all but working at it .I maybe repeating myself but I love the converters for clothing and hairs that allow me to use the older stuff on the newer figures cause in my opinion most of it still looks good ,and if not slap a shader on it and see what happens .....laugh

    Yes, I'm a "squeaking in" sort of person! (Always did need a deadline). laugh In fact it wouldn't have been submitted till today if I hadn't thought the contest ended yesterday night!

    ​I used the Now Crowds Billboards - Future Life and Now Crowds Billboards Modern city Life. The bill board figures are the ones mainly in the back furthur down the street, they are so useful I've found for filling up a scene without taxing my computer. I only picked them up recently but will be using them a lot more, when mixed with full figures and lo res figures it should be possible to get a very populated scene, something I've not been able to do in the past without rendering in bits this was rendered in one go the only reason its a small size was time rather than anything else, I did do one version on a larger scale and my Graphics card was able to handle it. But I didn't like the lighting and so wanted to redo it. I meant to render it while I was at work today but forgot to press the render button before I left so have to do it this evening in between getting dinner so it had to be the smaller dimensions.

    A really cool scene @scorpio.  Could you post it in the submission thread?

    I actually managed to do a render for this and I have to say I'm really happy with how things turned out. I used a V4 outfit and I've tried a lot of ways to convert those to G3 and G8. It never goes well. The dress might go okay but sleeves and shoes are alway bad. This is especially if you want to pose the figure in anything besides a T or A pose. I used the V4 to G8 converter for the first time and was really happy with how the dress and sleeves turned out. I have been wanting to use this dress on G9 for a long time and finally managed to do it with the converter. Thanks for some really great products!
