Intro:
I saw the most adorable wiener dog today. Then I realize we never did a theme about animals. So how about majestic animals. Im sure someone can do something creative with this.

The cat on your window seal, giving you the stare down. The dog diving in your trash looking for that chicken you threw away. The mouse scurrying across your floor, running away with your cheese. They are all part of this wonderful world. We just need to show it. Its time for our lil buddies to finally get the shine they deserve.  For all the Emperor Penguins, Queen Flamingos, Dr.Crocodiles, and future Lion Kings, let there majestic beauty show in the greatest way possible. Your imagination is the only limit.

    @hansmar

    Part of me did forget that bryce is actually a Terrain program. Im so used to using the render engine for all my scenes, I never realized that many people might not have access to animal models :D
    I am wondering if I should make the theme a bit more inclusive?

    Apoc, Good question. I do have access to animal models, so for me it is no problem.

    There are various free animal models around the web, including at Dieren gratis 3D modellen downloaden - Free3DFree 3D Animal Models | TurboSquid and various other sites. In some cases, one has to register for a site. Not all animals might be considered 'majestic'. However, what is majestic is for everybody who creates a render for the contest to decide.

    But, I am interested to hear whether other people have an issue with the theme.

    Yeah, there are also some free models on Sketchfab as well.

    Also https://poserdazfreebies.miraheze.org/wiki/Animals may help if you use Bryce together with Poser or DAZ Studio.

    It is a challenging challenge and  it will be nice to see what everyone comes up with. For me personally every challenge is challenging because I don"t use Daz or Poser or other 3D except Bryce and a bit of Wings. Thanks Hansmar and Past and Future for the links.

    How about making "retro 3D" animals in Bryce?)

    Here is some inspiration for you:

  • adbcadbc Posts: 2,411

    Hansmar : thanks for the links.

    Past as Future : thank you for the links and the "inspiration"

    Not an easy theme, a challenge in a challenge as mermaid said.

    Past as Future thanks for the inspiration.yes

  • ApocApoc Posts: 362

    If the theme is too difficult, or not interesting enough, I can push the date back further, or come up with a new theme if anyone is interested

  • HansmarHansmar Posts: 2,467

    I personally have no problem with this theme.

    Spuddy, Indeed, another greatly done render.

    I decided to interpret the word 'majestic' a bit differently. So here is my first entry: Majestic ants.

    One grass object, three ants (one, modified into three in Hexagon; free ant and Free3D). and one tree. Grass and ants instanced multiple times, tree only once. And two terrains too.

    spuddy : I agree with Horo and Hansmar, very well done.

    Hansmar : original idea, excellent render.

    My first entry : cold, hungry and alone. Bryce terrains, a gascloud HDRI, some vegetation and a fox from Content Paradise.

    Hansmar - a yes, ants are majestic creatures. Much older than humans and still here and busy doing their job.

    adbc - beautiful winter scene with the fox. Clever beasts.

    Spuddy another excellent entry.

    Looks again great, spuddy. Very nicely done wood through which the elephant comes to us.

    adbc, Horo, mermaid, spuddy: thank you

    adbc: wonderful mood in your render. I like the use of the sky.

    Spuddy: another wonderful entry. Fantastic woods and great light from the back.

    My second one: Who is majesty? A Rhino, surrounded by a number of flies, and a lion facing of. The lion does not look so majestic now, does he? A tropical tree by Judy K (multiple instances) and grass made from a tree (multiple instances). A sky by Karanta that I also used as IBL.
