I posted this the other day in the 2D thread but nobody seemed to know, so I'll try again here (regarding the 2d mini-challenge):

Quote: Rules question:
Are we allowed to incorporate photographic elements into our portrait (either on the character itself, or the background), or does it need to be all painted?

Sorry if I missed this, but I couldn't find an answer to it anywhere.

Thanks,
Adam


I sometimes do that in my style, but don't want to put in time just to be insta-disqualified :P
There doesn't seem to be detailed rules posted anywhere, maybe that just means anything goes

Do I have to be registered at the dominance war site/gameartisans.org to post my final image when time comes? Or to enter the main challenge?

Two questions:

1. When you say no photographic elements... does that mean we can't include photo references for textures? For example, if I use a photo of skin and use that to paint/clone my texture, is that permitted?

2. I assume that the 500tri additional element(s) can have their own normal, spec, etc. maps, yes?

1. you can use photos for textures. for the 2D people, they can't put a photo in the backgorund.

2. the 500 extra tris' textures have to fit in with the texture sheet of the main character.

since the necklace is part of the base mesh, you can't remove/modify it.

you can use photoshop to make a background. hell, you should put together a good image to submit, something like this...

http://www.gameartisans.org/contest...nals_1_289.html

...the test, the simple background all "fit" within the character's world.



as for using photoshop for glow, level, etc... keep it to a very minimum.... very minimum.

Update

*disregard this misplaced post*

An update to the design. I think this will have to do as I'm out of time. This should be fun to sculpt.

The necklace is asymmetric in placement. Can I shift it just slightly so that it is more symmetric? Not adding or changing geometry or moving it, just need to shift part of it so that it hangs symmetrically. Can I do this after sculpting and texturing? Thanks.

What forums are competing?

Hey all! Very excited for the competition, this will be my first time. Looks like a great learning experience.

What all forums are competing this time around? I'll probably support CGsociety, but I know I'm a member of several.

Looking forward to seeing everybody's work!
