I finally got the gallery on-line from the Film Noir challenge. With so much terrific work, it was hard to choose the top 24 out of all those entries!

Someone who already modeled a terrific challenge scene for us is hard at work creating the next challenge. I hope to get the next one started after I get back from SIGGRAPH (August 10-15).

Lighting Challenge #16 is The Lighthouse. It was modeled by Juan Carlos Silva. The Challenge starts today!

The deadline to get your entry into the gallery is Monday, October 27, 2008.


In other news, we are really blessed with a terrific line-up of original challenges. Lighting Challenge #17, Natural History, was modeled by Alvaro Luna Bautista and Joel Andersdon. Joel has allowed us to use some wonderful models that he built previously, and Alvaro (who previously built all of Lighting Challenge #14: The Local Train) has custom-built a terrific architectural environment that will surround those models. Look for Lighting Challenge #17 on October 31, 2008!

I just uploaded the new Natural History lighting challenge. This is a really huge, ambitious challenge scene modeled by Alvaro Luna Bautista (who did all the architecture and displays and everything except the dinosaurs), and Joel Andersdon (who made the dinosaur skeletons.)

Congratulations to all who participated.

Challenge #20, The Shop Girls, will start Friday August 14. This one is going to be terrific!

I won't be at SIGGRAPH (http://www.siggraph.org/s2009/) this year, but I hope everyone who does attend enjoys the conference next week, and considers joining the new lighting challenge when you get back!

As I mentioned last year, this was my last challenge as forum leader. There will be other lighting challenges, once another forum leader is appointed. I will remain active in these forums, so even though someone else will be organizing and running them in the future, I hope to be a part of future challenges as well.

Cheers,
