______________________________MORE GROUPS IN POST 2_________________________
some additional words that might help to get an idea for the topic: DISCOVERY - ADVENTURE - TRICKY - ARCANE / The additional words should allways be treated in combination with EXPLORATION.
Every group has two (not more not less) participants > one is responsible for the 2D and the other one for the 3D process. In the end there should be a finished 3D image.
The goal is to finish a 3D image wich follows the whole path from developing the idea,design, composition, modelling, compositing in a team projekt. EDIT 2Feb: To do justice to 2D also, every group has to deliver a final 2D establishing shot (like a milestone) which describes the scene that should be developed in 3D. It is not neccessary to make it perfect in look - it just has to describe the final intention. In the end we would like to show both images together.
EDIT 6Feb: The image zize of the final 3D image has to be minimum 3000px x 2182px with 300dpi to have at least an image printable in DIN A4 Format. The 2D establishing shot must not have print resolution > We leave it optional to every group to do so but it has to be at least 1600px in one side at 72 DPI resolution to have an image wich can be posted in the forums.
The 2D guys are leading the 2D process where concepts and the ideas for the challenge topic have to be done. The 3d guys assist the creation process with comments and rough thumbnail drawings. The 3d guys are leading 3D the process where all the ideas and the creations wich where developed together will build up. During this time the 2D guys have to assist the 3d elaboration with refined designs, details and everything needed to keep the modelling phase smoothy. At composition both group members work together with the rendered material and develop the final image. Depending on the knowledge cross overwork is allowed but it has to be clear who leads the 2d progress and who the 3d development.
Every artist from different fields get an inside of how the others knowledge and skills. This effect should be increased by working together on one image. The teamwork situation brings the skills of each together with focus to optimize those skills in terms of the production pipeline to get the work finished in time. This challenge gives a very good opportunity to refine own skills regarding comprehensive field of works.
The deadline for the CollabBATTLE is 26. JUNE. In the end we will put all the stuff made (finished and unfinished) together and see what finaly came out.
If you intend to join please post the names of both participants (donīt forget to mention who makes 2D and 3D) and please prepare the following image (in post 2) with your avatars so that we can add them on the first post (frontpage). Every group opens an own thread in the 3D-Wip section with the following description: CollabBATTLE "EXPLORATION" - name and name. Below every goupbadge you can grap withing this thread from the other participants. From this thread we will provide a link which leads to the threads.
Every group gets a JPG headline wich has to be placed in the first post of the thread to keep everything visually united.
Then you are offically in the game.
no group limitation but > final entry deadline 10th february
The joining process has a deadline because the 10th february is 3 weeks after the challenge-beginning wich is almost one third of the whole challenge time. After that it will be difficult to get the project finished anyway. Sorry if we offend someone but we didnīt expect the challenge to grow this big. We intend to try running this challenge without moderator help cause they are packed with work themselves.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION !
-Everyone who is interested to join but donīt know someone to build up a group can post a comment within this thread. It is helpful to post some of your work that other members who are interested also can get an idea of your preferences and skill level.
-please make sure you store your linked images on your sever properly. this helps keeping your challenge threads readable for a long time.
-And please prevent changing the avatars during the challenge period cause the people get used know to them and its quite anoying to change those frequently at frontpage.
Itīs like in the big challenges just a bit different. But if you still have some questions ask Dimi, JamesMK, FlyingP or fahrija for further information.
