Submission Guidelines.



It's getting close to the deadline and all of the entries are looking fantastic.

if you want to submit an entry to be considered, please read the following notes....

1. Submission time is Midnight where you are. Please be honest with this.

2. Mari screenshots are fine. Renders are great too. Please treat it like a showreel, so 3 or 4 great images are better than 20 ok ones. There is not fixed limit, but bear in mind we want to see both technical details and eye-candy.

3. Please post results in this thread, one post per submission. Also include a link to any WIP thread you've been running.

4. We will be picking the finalists and will be posting results in this thread and PM'ing winners.

5. Finalists will then be given 1 week to polish and render their final submissions.

6. We will setup an ftp site and winners will be expected to upload an Mari archive of their project.

7. Overall winner will be decided from their final renders and by checking out the archive.

Good luck and I really have been blown away by the quality of the submissions.

Due to Time crunch I am forced to submit this. Little bit of more time would have helped me to finish this a lot better. Anyways I am happy to be a part of this great challenge and also to learn Mari which I feel was a wonderful experience. Also this was the first time I am texturing without touching Photoshop.
All the best to everyone.....

Best of luck to everyone!

WIP Thread:

EDIT: This is not a resubmission or anything, but I notice the images are really small here and they can't be linked, it would appear I can't handle Imageshack 100%. Anyways, here's a link to my images, starting from image 1, then click next till you get to final_stage_01_005 so you guys can see them in bigger format!
Also if anybody can help me create the real links that would be awesome, please PM. me if you can!

Because of the problem I mentioned before I was unable to submit the final materials, but I managed to put together WIP textures from an earlier backup, and make a render of that.

Having consulted an expert panel of industry veterans I'm pleased to announce the finalists for the Mari texturing contest.

First off thank you to everyone who took part. We were blown away by the entries and the great feedback we got.

The finalists in alphabetical order are...


Well done to everyone else!

Finalists, you have one week to polish, render and detail your entries.

We'll be giving some feedback and comments.

Next Friday evening is the final submission time and we will be picking an overall winner.
