Welcome to our eleventh Digital Matte Painting monthly challenge, presented by CGSociety! These short monthly challenges are meant to be fun while at the same time, allow you to create a nice looking piece in the end and win some prizes if you place in the top three.
All skill levels of artists are welcome in this challenge!
The prizes for top 3 placements are:
1st Prize: 1 x CGWorkshop, 1 xCGTOD, 1 x Ballistic Book of Choice, 1 x CGSConnect Membership
2nd Prize: 1x CGTOD, 1 x Ballistic Book of Choice, 1 x CGSConnect Membership
3rd Prize: 1 x Ballistic Book of Choice, 1 x CGSConnect Membership
Required in every monthly challenge to qualify for the prizes:
Post one rough concept of your idea and at least two work in progress images in the forum. Your final draft must be delivered on or before 11:59pm PST on the last day of the month of the challenge.
To enter, simply create a new thread in this forum with the DATE of challenge and name such as: “May 2015 - David Luong”
Objective: Take the provided plate, extend it to a cinematic 2.40:1 aspect ratio and destroy the city, as if a superhero fight would have just taken place. This can include atmospherics but should ideally not contain animated objects such as vehicles or people, as we will be judging primarily based on the clean DMP itself.
Present your final image at 2048x853 pixel resolution.
Well be judging on realism and creativity within the given parameters of this challenge. Good luck to everyone! Please feel free to ask any questions here.
As always, you can ask general digital matte painting questions, and post WIP work not pertaining to this challenge in the regular DMP forum here: http://forums.cgsociety.org/forumdisplay.php?f=196
