Hi smiljan

Well in the rules, the only conditions for a work to be eligible is to be CG. Then if you do 2D, 3D, matte painting or whatever, it's not your tools that will be congratulate, but your final result. (I'm working in 3D too).

So, maybe should you take advantage of 3D over 2D like easy duplication (which is a great advantage if you are planning to have a lot of vegetation), ambient occlusion (2D artiste have to paint it!), and lightning which will be computed for you (and which is pretty simple in this case).

So my point of view is, as long as your tool are CG, only the final picture will be considered...so go now and put your polygons together!

(PS: for the WIP, it has been said that it is the standard wip section of the site, so maybe just put a mention like "[nvidia sureal contest] blablablablabla")

hey I was wondering if someone could provide a link to the subforum where WIP for this challenge can be placed?

(quite easy to get lost with all the content you guys are hosting ^.^ thanks).

I know its not like the other challenges and WIP isnt a requirement, but as it mentions on the introduction page..
Quote: We strongly encourage entrants to participate in the competition forum as they will benefit from feedback from the community.


Thanks! ^.^;

@ smiljan66- I understand the point you are trying to make about 2D VS 3D. With respect I invite you to demonstrate how much easier 2D is by showing us your skill in this competition. With such good prizes available to the winning entry, why make things so difficult for yourself. You are having computer crashes from too large 3D render and so on. Why not do it in 2D? Just a thought for you.

I wish you well.

Hi all!

Well I know that the work must be CG, but I want to know: if I print my UVs, paint them and then scan them again, will it be considered as CG work, should I use that technique?

I have a submit question. I have to subscribe and pay money to post my work? I am registred for the forum but it seems a have to get a membership at 29.99$. Is that it?

I am also having an issue with submitting my work. I hit the submit button and it seems to work fine but the page refreshes itself and nothing seemed to upload. I've tried uploading my image at 1.9mb and 1.3mb. Is there something that I'm missing? Thanks so much.

No you do not need to be a paid CGSociety member to enter the competition. You only need to have a free CGTalk account, which you definitely have.

Your image has to be the exact dimensions as specified on the Submission Page (2560x1600). If your image is not these dimensions, it will be be submitted.

1. You are to use Yerka's style to visualise your own concept. You do not directly copy one of Yerkas work, you create your own composition but in the style of Yerka.

2. Yes, that is the objective of the competition. I suggest that you read the Inspiration and Guide page for more detailed information about how to go about this.
