Creatures CGPortfolio Mini-Challenge Dec 9th - Dec 23rd 2013




You know the only thing wrong with the holiday season? Not enough monsters. Luckily, between now and the 23rd of December, CGSociety is giving you the chance to upload as many creepy, slimy, toothy, hairy, leggy, scaly, craggy, smelly, weird or just plain scary (or even beautiful) beings as your heart desires.

Your creatures can be 2D or 3D - they can be WIPs or fully realised - they can be whatever you like. You just need to upload them to your CGPortfolio before December 23rd 2013 and put them in the "Creatures" category. (Don't forget to do this, or your creature can't be considered.)

After this date, our five judges (all contributors to The Essence - Creatures ) will each choose their favourite piece, and tell us why they like it. There are no other criteria - it's entirely up to them (and their decisions are final!)

Winners will receive a free slip-case copy of The Essence - Creatures , a years' free CGSConnect Membership and a free CGTOD of their choice. We'll also showcase your CGPortfolio via our social media.

Our judges are:

Bryan Wynia
Josh Herman
Martin Rezard
Jim Van Den Bogart
Ian Joyner

Happy uploading! Feel free to post any questions in this thread (or links to your CGPortfolio, if you like). Or you can email me on kirsty@ballisticmedia.net

Remember to put your monster in the "Creatures" category!

We've had some awesome monsters uploaded, but not everyone is remembering to either tag their image "Creatures" or put it into the "Creatures" category in the drop-down menu. You have to do one of these to be eligible to win. It's not too late to go back in and tag it if you forgot!

Happy Holidays!

Have a look at what's been uploaded so far...

In the new Galleries section of our CGPortfolio. Not quite finished yet, but here's a sneak peek of a Creatures Gallery:

what time zone are you in?
I'm assuming Pacific Time, but could be wrong i guess.
I'm on the East Coast so I hope to have a few more hours!
Thanks

Hi 3mm - that is unusual. It could be a caching issue - can you see them now (3 days after you first posted?) If you can't, email bencastles@ballisticmedia.net and he will look into the issue for you. Thanks for alerting us to this.
