I have a question that has been bugging me about the foliage treatment described in the guide. I understand that for the most part you are speaking to 3D artists as evidenced by the terms and language used to convey the various concepts. At one point you say ..." and avoiding any intersections" and ..."Make sure not to have any overlaps." This is very specific and yet for me, it is also unclear. I understand that the reference to intersections could be directed at 3D artists, admonishing them to avoid interpenetrating geometry, but no overlaps is confusing. Your example images of the leaves have some beautiful overlapping going on. I would like to fully understand this before spending too much time on the gazillion leaves I have planned for my image.

I believe this question have been answered: the only resolution accepter is 2560x1600, so if you want a vertical render, you will have to use black borders

Well I'm not in the contest team but I think that displacement are used to create forms and shapes, so I really don't see why they would be forbidden? Then if bump mapping are used to create a style like yarek's style, I think it's good too

In fact I think there is no restriction in technique as long as they are used to make a picture like Yarek do.

if you want a vertical image you need to make it fit in the set size.

yes.

It shouldn't take that long - your settings are too high - crank them back and work up.

Ok. So did I miss the post on the secret handshake required to get an answer to a question or have I posted in the wrong place?

This may have been already answered, but I didn't catch it:

Is the image we post final? Or can it be updated, I'm was almost sure I checked every inch of my painting before I posted it, but after seeing it in context I see several horrible mistakes jumping out?

Is it possible to create a thread for my artwork without using "Submit entry"? I would like to discuss some of my sketches, but haven't decided which one to go with or anything yet.
