    I don't know a thing about Carrara but I enjoyed looking through all the entries. Great work, everybody!
    And yes, it's extremely difficult to narrow the choice down to just a few.

    So, here's my vote:

    #23 - Subject, composition and color choice are just perfect here; and it really gets the point across

    #35 - Impressive image, and it showcases Carrara's features nicely

    #1 - Has a wonderful airy and dreamy feel to it, good use of the clouds

    HM: #17 - Love the concept, and it made me laugh

    This has taken me days to decide, with so many wonderful entries! But in the end I am going for (in entry order):

    #16 - Dartanbeck - All in One, and One in All!

    #17 - DustRider - We Want Carrara 9

    #35 - Head Wax - Raiders of the Lost Software

    HM - #25 - Misty - Carrara 9 the Broadway Musical

    But everyone deserves a prize (maybe a free copy of Carrara 9!!)

  • A very tough choice...

    My votes in numerical order :

    Entry #3  Artist ToeJam Title " The Good ole boy of 3D"

    Entry #13 Artist - DustRider Title - The Secret Plans for Carrara 9

    Entry #20 Artist Mark D. Olsen (MDO2010) Title "Stepping Stones"

    Honorable Mention:

    Entry # 23 Artist: FifthElement Title: Carrara R.I.P.

  • this is hard... so far I'm leaning towards Entry 2

    LOL!

    Looking forward to snow, are you? ;)

    Yeah, I thought that was a HW joke in the WIP thread, I guess it turned out to be a real entry!

  • Heya! I'm responding to Dartanbeck's call out for votes. Glad I did. Seriously great work here everyone.

    Criteria used in my votes was lighting, composition, integration of the "Carrara 9", and use of Carrara's tools. In numeric order:

    #4 - ToeJam - Vigil  - Very striking with the sunrise sillouhette.

    #6 - PhilW - I have a Carrara 9 shaped hole in my life - Great rim light and completely appropriate use of Carrara's tools

    #33 - DesertDude - A Day in Carrarland - Colorful and fun and I think the fur looks fabulous.

    HM - #22 - Jay Versluis- Carrara Reef, South Pacific - Rockin' it with the terrain generator

    Good luck!

    Yikes!

    Oh... because it's just a blank post - nothing but white. Nevermind me... I haven't been sleeping well

    ha ha, sorry, there is a reasonabl explanation I put Antara there but Wendy put in a number two as well, so I took Antara out and put her later, but then Wendy changed her number, so there is only scant evidence that my post ever existed.... and then I voted for #44 but changed it when Dart explained that ... :)  it's cause my hat is too tight!

  • HeadwaxHeadwax Posts: 7,758

    yes why only three ? :)

    will see what the next host decides :)

  • FeralFeyFeralFey Posts: 3,202

    Wow! This was really hard to make a decision. You all did wonderful work. Good job to everyone!

    So my choices are:

    # 13 (lovely use of DOF. Plus I loved the realism of the shop. Very nicely done.)

    # 17 (the poses were well done, the composition well thought out, and the lighting is exquisite.)

    # 3 (I just loved the way this one looked. The lighting, the pose, the general feel of the image. I could almost smell the cut wood.)

    And for HM # 16 (to be honest, it was because Dartanbeck was kind enough to give a shout out for the sword I built. ...Yeah, I can be bought. Lol.)  

    Honestly, everyone did such a tremendous job with these renders. It was a pleasure to view them, and I'm sad that I only got to chose 4. I could have easily picked ten or more. 

    Keep up the good work!
