IMPORTANT EDIT: THIS IS AN OLD CHALLENGE.
Please enjoy reading through this thread as an archive, but it is closed to new posts. You can still download the old models and also post your entry in order to ask for feedback here
Challenge #20 features a store interior and two characters. The challenge is to bring the scene to life using any choice of 3D graphics techniques. The deadline is October 26, 2009, although if you post your work earlier than that other participants can give you feedback. You can download the 3D scene files from here:
This scene was modeled by Giorgio Luciano, Dan Konieczka, and Jeremy Birn. Please credit them for the modeling if you post your renderings on your webpage or include a scene on your showreel. Here’s a screenshot of the raw models that you will start with:
As always, changes to the scene and models are allowed. At minimum, you’ll need to do some polygon smoothing (subdivision) to some of the larger surfaces such as the character’s clothing. If you want to do more than this (use real hair instead of the included hair models, rig and pose characters, add models for store merchandise, or anything else) you are free to add or change whatever you want to the scene. All 3D rendering techniques are allowed.
Please share information about your software and techniques and set-up after you post your scene.
Post all entries by replying to this thread before October 26, 2009.
