[b][b]3D Challenge[/b][/b] [left] It's time to gather up your creativity, pull together your talents, and get ready for a new kind of warm up competition in the Dominance War series - Mini Challenges! Although the theme is separate from the main epic event, world champion standings are assured for the best mini comp entries! To commemorate a new class of competition, we will be using a modified theme from [i][b]Dominance War I. [/b][/i] So this year's first ever 3D mini topic is: [/left] [b]War General Portraits SDK![/b][left] The rules are simple - artists are to take one of the 3 pre-made unwrapped models and finalize it with details, colors, background and/or an expression. Your war general portrait can be from any time period and any race. As long as he/she/it looks like a war general, has the appropriate [b]team war logo somewhere on the body/clothes[/b][b],[/b] and has the appropriate [b]team colors [/b][[found here]](http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=282&t=728088), everything is good! Backgrounds are optional. Presentation is optional. Posing is optional. Basically... everything is optional. This challenge is here for those desiring to practice their art before the main event. So keep it easy, keep it quick, and keep it real. [b]Rules:[/b] You have 9 days (2 weekends plus 5 days) to finish with the following specs: - Use only [b]"1"[/b] of the base unwrapped meshes supplied to get you started. Altering its form before texturing is NOT ALLOWED. Once you are finished with colors and details, you can then pose the head and alter its expression for your final presentation. - 1024x1024 of ANY and ALL texture sheet types. Example, one Normal sheet, one Spec sheet, one Gloss sheet, one Glow sheet, etc.
You are allowed to alter the uvs of the base mesh.
Zbrushers/Mudboxers: you can push verts but the overall silhouette must stay intact and no extra geo should be added to the base mesh.
- Optional 500 tris for extra gear like a hat, hair, helmet, etc.
- All lighting solutions from any software package is permitted.
- All shaders are permitted.
