3D Mini Challenge #1 - Rules/Regulations

CGS Chicago 3D Mini Challenge #1

Download Links:


: Create a single rendered composition out of three objects

  • Object #1: Flower (provided)
  • Object #2: One of three childrens' toys (provided)
  • Object #3: Something from your work area
  • Must have a WIP from initial idea to final rendering
  • Additional models are acceptable, but the focus should be on the three primary objects
  • Model you create must be a new model (nothing you've modeled before)
    • Take a picture of your workspace object and post that in your WIP
Judging Criteria:

  • Modeling - 15%
  • Lighting - 15%
  • Materials - 15%
  • Camera - 15%
  • Overall Composition: 40%
A Few Thoughts:
  • You could choose to set up the images like a still life and focus on lighting and composition of the image
  • You could create a story using the objects and convey it through the camera lens
  • Until we get a separate category for the challenges, start a new thread in the Chicago Chapter. Title of the thread should be "3D CHALLENGE #1 - YOUR NAME"
  • Final image size can be any aspect, but constrain the longest dimension to no more than 1600 pixels

If you haven't been approved in a timely fashion send a PM to Taoizm and he'll make sure it's put through.*
