View Full Version : Lighting Challenge #25: (Final Images) Artistry

11 November 2010, 08:06 PM
This thread is for final image submission for Challenge #25 Artistry. The deadline for this challenge is January 16th, 2011.

Since this thread is what the judge will choose from I'd like to keep this thread very clean, so here are some rules I'd like to set:

Post final images by replying to this thread
Please post final images only, if you make changes you can edit your post.
Try not to fill this thread with feedback, that's what the WIP thread is for.
You can post more than one image, but please don't post the same image more than once

Good luck and Enjoy!

Hi guys, first of all I want to thank everybody for the feedback, it definetly helped me a lot to achieve the final result :bowdown:

I did a little camera movement, but I probably won't be able to render the 120 frames in time for the deadline. Anyways here are my two images... (

Hi guys,

This is my final image for the Artistry Lighting Challenge.I spotted the challenge 5 days ago
and really wanted to take part, so it's been pretty busy ;)
I'm a Lightwave 3d user and i utilize Fusion 6 for compositing. Rendering was done with
Lightwave's native renderer and i used Monte Carlo radiosity to round it off.
Thanks to Giorgio Luciano for the cool set, i really enjoyed working on the layout with so
much to choose from.

I cant wait to see what the next lighting challenge will bring.

Un pintor famoso pierde la inspiracion mientras
pinta una mujer que el pretende que represente
la paz interna, en su afan por lograr representar
esto lleva a una chica a su taller y en su desesperacion
de ver que no logra ver esa paz en su modelo se le
ocurre que la paz no esta en vida sino en muerte
y mata a su modelo, pero esto no es suficiente
y decide pintar mas hasta encontrar la paz perfecta
y asi lleva muchas chicas a su taller para pintar su paz
