New User's Contest - July 2016
Sponsored by DAZ 3D and Sedor

Sedor is offering 1 product to each winner in this month's contest. Only products that list Sedor as the only vendor are eligible prize selections.

Are you new to the 3D World? Are you at the beginning stages of learning 3D rendering? Have you been around for a little bit but feel you could benefit from some feedback or instruction? Have you been around awhile and would like to help other members start their creative journey? Well then come and join the fun as we host our newest contest...


"Portrait Rendering (Expressions and Lighting)"

This month's focus will be Portrait Rendering, with an emphasis on the character's expression and lighting. Portraits are the way we show off the unique aspects of each individual. Expressions should convey their personality. Good lighting will enhance your portrait and set the mood. Portraits don't have to look like yearbook headshots. Get creative, hone your skills, and have some fun in this months contest.

I will be checking in on the WIP thread, as will the rest of the Community Volunteers, to try and help with anything you may need, so feel free to ask questions there. Look in the WIP thread for links to help you with composing and lighting portraits.

For a list of the current contest rules, please see this thread : Contest Rules


When working on your submissions, if you would like to get feedback as you work or before posting your final image, please post your image to the WIP thread. People will be popping in to the WIP thread to give you some critique and advice on your entry and help along the way.

Please keep all comments on entries in the WIP thread as well, because comments or requests for help/feedback/advice will be removed from the contest entry thread and merged into the WIP thread. This entry thread is only for posting final contest submissions.

For those veterans of the forums that would like to help, because this contest is designed for the beginner to learn from, we will be randomly selecting posts offering helpful tips and/or critiques to receive a special voucher as well so, whether you are a seasoned artist or an aspiring one, there is fun for everyone!

 

Closing Date: July 31, 2016

    Title: The Girl Next Door

    Used DS 4.9

    All the hair products seem to look strange and wiry in closeups for realistic renders so I'm teaching myself hairpainting....
