Exclamation DMP Monthly Mini Challenges -- Coming Soon!

We'll be doing short bursts of DMP challenges to help hone your skills. Some potential prizes are CGS Connect Yearly memberships, CGToD's, d'Artiste: Matte Painting books, and more! It'll be a plate, still or moving, given by us with some basic guidelines, and then you guys will take it in your own creative direction.

Should be happening soon, stay tuned guys!

Mini Challenges

Exciting!!
It would be great to know how many people would actually be interested in this
For those of you who remember the CGChannel monthlies, this is pretty much the same idea, and should be a lot less stressful than one of the big CGSociety challenges.
Write your name on the wall, or pencil it in
This will be great for DMPs of all levels

Yes, it truly is exciting and I'm interested in this!
It looks like a great occasion to improve skills and to meet again . I wrote at the end of Kreola contest that you can count on me in these circumstances and... this is still valid!

Regards
Jonatan

DMP Monthly Mini Challenges

David's really the driving force behind it all. This is going to be more of a faster paced high frequency contest structure with less sponsors but incredible learning opportunity as well as exposure. Hope you guys can all join and participate as much as possible. Help us get the word out in order for us to be able to keep this alive once the ball is rolling...

This sounds great, and hopefully will be easier to find time to do. Thanks for this David - great stuff!

In terms of ideas, could I request the occasional 'real world' brief for folks with an arch vis leaning?! eg ski resort, theme park, research park, nature reserve, etc...

There is a real lack of these types of challenges around the net, particularly in matte painting, and I think this will make a wonderful addition to this community. I really look forward to it
