This is an old challenge now, this thread is archived. If you scroll down to the Challenge #11 section of the downloads page, you’ll see that the models can still be downloaded for your tests, and also that a gallery has been made of top entries. Feel free to browse this thread to see what others have posted, even though you can no longer post here.
Show that Leet is better than Brand X.
Lighting Challenge #11 is on-line! You can download the 3D models and label texture maps from this page:
These scene contains two almost identical bottles of a fictional product. It comes with texture maps for the product labels identifying Brand X on the left, and Leet on the right.
The challenge includes bottle model(s) and label texture maps.
You need to create a comparison image to show that Leet is better than Brand X.
Your goal is to create an advertising comparison image which shows that Leet is better than Brand X. Since the products appear similar, you need to differentiate them through how you light and render the two products.
Please credit the modeling by Anthony J. Thomas if you put renderings of this scene into your webpage or your portfolio. Anthony designed and built the original models.
Light and render this scene in any 3D software. Use any texturing, shading, lighting, rendering and compositing techniques of your choice. The bottles do not have to appear transparent, but they include interior details that would be needed if you choose transparent shaders. You can change the models as needed, but please use the included labels on the products so that people can tell them apart. Use any background or environment or background image that you want to complete your concept.
