View Full Version : Need Artwork For Blender Promotion

09 September 2007, 07:33 AM
Hello there.

I have an idea to promote blender. I think its pretty cool but feel free to cut me down.

Ok, the idea of it is that artists create rooms.
The rooms have 2 or more doors. (1 for looking into and 1 for exiting).
door dimensions HAVE TO BE 1unit by 2 units! Just to keep things relatively flowing.
The rooms can have anything in them anything at all. Thats for YOU to come up with.
And remember this is to promote blender! So be imaginative!

Doors are 1unit by 2 units.
view has to be from the door.
At least 1 other door has to be visible! So you can go to the next room.
Visible doors need to be closed and totally solid. No glass or anything similar.
"Room" has to be modeled in blender (you can use whatever renderer you wish, preferably free/open source)
Id like you to have some sort of reference on the image to you, like a URL watermark in the corner or something.
Render images at 800x600 (and keep defualt lense settings please, so no fisheye or anything)

Cant think of any other rules right now.

Once i have enough images to get started (lets say 10 different decent ones) Ill register a domain name (something like ( or something else if you can think of something better.)

So when you go to the domain you get a random image, you click the image and then you get a different room etc etc etc.

Hope you guys like the idea!

Get blending!

P.S. My art is nowhere good enough so that where i need YOU GUYS! Im an ideas man.

It would help to keep the rooms uniform if you make a template. Walls and door openings already there, and camera at the right spot. Artists could then just build it from there, and the end result would be uniform in terms of camera position and so on.

Nice idea, by the way!

I was thinking that originally, but then i thought, what if people want to do citiscapes or something similar. A room is maybe too confining? Although i think i will start off with people using the template and then maybe relax the rules a bit so people can be more creative.

Ok. I made a template.

ViewDoor is the door the room is viewed from. (leave the camera where it is please)
You can use either Door1 or Door2 as your door in your "room".

The door has to be no larger or smaller than the door frames provided. But the door can look like you want it to look. Like I said, no glass and completely solid so you cant see through the door.

The idea is great! How are you going to present it in a website? Can this be done in a real-time Architectural Walthrough? You enter a door virtually, you take a look what's inside. Artworks can be displayed on the walls of this walkthrough via UV texture or the room itself have models to marvel. Then walk inside of it, and you exit to find yourself immersed in another artwork.

this sounds similar to the Gmail letter video. Should be cool.

This is pretty neat. I think I'll try to make a cool-looking room. No promises, though, I'm afraid I'm no expert.

thats a cool idea, imo. if i was a blender user and had time i would join project for sure, it could be nice "walk through" i say go, blenderers :)
