Hi pals, thanks for the new challenge.

I want to make a humourus image, based on some ideas I have for a personal work, just adapting then to the theme. The instructions seems to ask for something more "serious" instead of funny, does that interpretation of the instructions is right?, or doesn't matter the mood of the image?.

Thanks in advance.

Julian, you can pick anything you want, some people even have humour as a theme riding through pretty much all their challenge works! (Have you seen Michael Dashow's pieces?) Don't worry, you won't be penalized for making the judges chuckle.

Hello Anton
so glad join this creative journey once again. I'm sure everybody is gaining a lot of just following the wip of so many talented people around.
just wanted to ask, as a lesson of the steam punk challenge- is there a way to put a count- down clock so people will know how much time is left till deadline, with out having the trouble with the time zone issue.
besides, it is much more motivating when you have the send falling trough the sand-glass, in front of your eyes.
also- what about the problems with the final image uploading system? was that taken care of?
thanks
Lior

Can you please clarify what you deem as sculpture from modeling catagories ?

I see sculpture as "live" works using traditional methods eg: chavant clay, sculpty etc.

Where as using ZBrush or Mudbox can be deemed as either digital sculpting or modeling.

Hi, my question would be:

What is the opinion towards the usage of realtime rendering?
I'd like to use Cryengine2.

The site is called CG Society, so you are generally expected to use the CG versions of sculpture, not natural media, for your 3D entry.

Theresa - Darn, you got there before I could make a sarcastic comment. Thanks for the nod, though!

So what is the difference? Digital modeling is just that. Or are we now saying because you use ZBrush or Mudbox it is somehow different than Maya, Max ?

I think the title is redundant. That is why I am asking.

When does modeling stop becoming a model but is now considered a scuplture?

I just noticed that when I went back and read the confirmation email. There isn't a page for the current challenge, so is this offer no longer valid/included in the confirmation email as a mistake?

You're right. There's no XSI offer this time around. That's an unfortunate carry over from the old challenges. I'll go fix it.

Well, i really need someone to answer my questions so i can start.

Quote: i want to use an actor, and sound designer.
But i'll do all the work including editing, compositing, modeling and texturing.

Can i enter the video individuals category?
Or is it considered as a team?

Another question:
Can i use language other than english (with english subtitle of course)?


Thanks alot in advance. =)


Sorry for the trouble.

Question #1:
team - a number of persons (two or more) associated together in work or activity.
individual - of, relating to, or distinctively associated with one person.

Question #2:
Yes, that would be fine.

Of course i know that.

i remember i read in the last challenge that "Team" is meant for people who just work in CG elements.
Someone answered that when a person asked if it's ok to ask a friend to make music for him.
That's why i'm a bit cofused.

thnx anyway
