    Well, at least they don't walk! They look quite pleased with that fact, too. :) And with their ride.

    Nope, sorry, KK. That was actually answered by Rob early in the thread. SUV's and vans were okay, but nothing bigger.

    BTW, Rob, if you're still out there, glad to see things are working out on the home front. Best wishes. Aaaaaand, if you're really stuck for judges, I guess I can throw my hat in the ring, although I do have an entry that I might as well withdraw if judging, I suppose. Also, I don't have a clue what will be expected, but I guess its a little late to worry about that now. :)

    I am willing to host in April but I could use some help.

    Rob came up with such a great theme for March but I have not been able to think of anything for April. Easter is too early in the month so I have been trying to think of something else.

    I do not want to hijack Rob's thread but I could use some ideas.

    Tuesday, one minute before midnight Utah time (since Utah is home to DAZ3D).

    Thanks! I'll add you to the list of judges.

    I've already done the mechanical work of ensuring the entries follow the Challenge rules and are on-topic, so you can use whatever criteria you like when judging.

    Is there a song with a memorable lyric that you can turn into a Challenge? That's what I did this month.

    Thanks Rob. I think I have a theme. :-)

    That is assuming no one else wants to host April. I am willing to step aside if they do.

    I would have offered but I am already "Volunteered" to front the April NU contest, plus I have the Bryce challenge to supervise as well :roll:

    Why not just "April Foolishness" as a theme. Render something foolish or silly.

    I can help with anything needed with challenge and I guess be again judge for the next month. Btw I also need to be beach manager and prepare things for this summer so I am guessing that I will be busy from now on till end of summer but will be here and follow this with interest. Will send my votes soon. Good work everyone, lots of really good entries this month.

    An under-the-wire entry, as thanks for ear-Beatling me every time I visited the Freepozitory. :)

    This was also my first chance to play around with the new IRay renderer.

    Freebies (A * indicates registration required for the site)
    1) Fober's Foberghini
    2) PJ's Van
    3) DieTrying's 182 V4 Morphs (converted by SickleYield)
    4) Pixeluna's Joy for V4 (skin texture) (second from top)
    5) Propschick's Aditi Hair*
    6) StudioArtVartanian's Party Dress for V4*
    7) Wilmap's Roaring 20s Shoes*
    8) Chris Cox's Seadog Hair
    9) Sickleyield's Snug Tank for Genesis

    Undeclared
    - Genesis
    - RAMWolff Morphs for Genesis and RAMWolff's Bruno skin -- apparently these freebies are no longer around :(
    - AndreaC's The Street is likewise unavailable now, though given its age that's not surprising.
    - I don't know how fussy people want to be about this but the van retexturing was done in GIMP using free tiles and brushes. :)

    Well, not quite under the wire - you still have (looks at clock) a bit under 18 hours...

    As long as the re-texturing was done before the render (which I think is the case), you're good.

    I have to admire your courage in posting an entry using Beta software, katfeete! :)

    Out of curiosity, what lighting setup did you use? There seem to be a few fireflys on the rear of the car. Unless those are stone chips that are supposed to be there? :)

    I noticed those, too. I figured they were on purpose, road damage...as well as what looks like what might be bird poop. :)

    Nice! What an imaginative use of RR track and a bridge! Very creative! You might want to zoom in a little bit more so we can see the expression on his face better next time.

    All your links check out, and you have enough of them. You've given an intriguing twist to the theme, too.

    This challenge is now officially closed.

    With fifteen entries, I'll have some decisions to make once all the judges get back to me. (Early returns show a trend, but I haven't made my choices yet...) Stay tuned - I trust I'll post the results later today.
