::Can we incorporate a scene or environment with the character?::
Yes. The render final image must be an ENTIRE COMPLETED SCENE. Not just a model.
It must be a COMPLETE artwork.
::wHATS THE DEADLINE FOR THIS CHALLENGE?::
Well, its a 3 month challenge…so 3 months from now?
::What about concepts?::
Concepts are always part of the WORK IN PROGRESS.
::Is it possible for us to team up with a buddy for a double entry? i.e where a 3d entry could use my 2d concepts and stuff::?
It does say tht this must be an individual challenge. Of course somebody else drawing inspiration from your work, but putting to gether there own concepts would be acceptable…
::Hmmm seems no one has asked this question but… can we enter both 2D and 3D sections of the challenge?::
::I want to know if we are allowed to put any post effects on the 3D section image and if so to what extent or if it has to be a straight render.::
Most of the image has to be 3D. Taking a photo, and adding in a 3D Element is not allowed. Say 3/4’th of your image has to be 3D. Use your own common sence and judgement.
Post effects arent only allowed, but encouraged! No work is complete with out post work IMHO.
::1. Can I have maybe 2 or more characters in a scene ?::
Yes. You could populate your scene with 3000 characters if your PC can handle it.
::2. Does everything in the scene must be “modernized” ?::
Nope. Go ‘steampunk’ if ya want!
::3. Yep, same question about environment, it`s better to have it, right ?::
The scene is going to be judged on the ENTIRE scene, characters, environments, textures, lighthing…
::4. It can be everything from worm to some T-rex ?
And all the aomeba’s inbetween… Basically-yes. Anything, as long s it fits into the ‘Mechanicle Flesh’ idea.::
::5. Must it be a real lifeform, modernized, or can it be a little bit cartoony ? ::
The example of Wallace and Gromit is given-so anything goes. Serious, cartoony, etc etc etc.
::what is the deadline for registering… is it the same for submitting ?.. i.e 18 June 2004 ?
In the AW challenge, people where entering in the last 3 days of the challenge…::
::I have a question about plugin restrictions that have applied to previous challenges eg. the one on having to model hair rather than using a hair plugin etc.::
I would assume its a case of use any and all tools that you have at your disposal to create your image.
Bear in mind that these answers are just assumptions. I could be wrong-but alot of these issues have been answered in previous challenges.
