#2

Well I’m trying to decide between someone from the Olympics or this other thing.
So my question, what about sports entertainment? :smiley:


#3

i think WWE style wrestling (i presume that’s your intention) should count,they’re athletes like everyone else, I was originally considering doing The Rock but went for football instead…


#4

The ref pictures would be plenty lol so must pictures of the Rock on the internet


#5

I know I was looking for reference for different US Olympic team members but at some point I got on old WCW/NWO videos from the 90s (good ol’ Youtube) and well, the nostalgia was just too strong. :smiley:

Roberto, let me know once you get settled at SIGGRAPH. There are plenty of Olympians I can do if you’d prefer not going this route.


#6

It is fake sports, but it is a sport.

So go ahead.

:slight_smile:


#7

No disagreement here. As the wrestlers themselves say, the moves are fake but the pain is real.

“Wooooooooo!”
That’s a clue. :smiley:


#8

is a basemesh allowed (like in a real production) or everything from scratch as in the sticky ?


#9

i’d say as long as its generic enough it’d be fine (and it progresses a ton from the original)…i think the opposition to such things has eased the last few challenges…

besides if we are trying to simulate a production schedule, i’m pretty sure they use base meshes…

and things usually get retopo’d after a while anyway


#10

Oki how about this…

Post the WIP thread and make the argument on the thread.
Good luck

#11

Is Grifball acceptable subject matter if presented in a dynamic and wholly from-scratch kind-of-way? I ask simply because I’m also working on a submission for another contest and the two would marry/motivate more seamlessly for me: i.e. continued participation.

Now, to clarify the concept before all the flaming starts:

except the players are wearing power-armor and trying to cream the runner with energy swords or giant hammers!

I’d really to participate!

EDIT:

I’m still sending this post to be Validated, but I should really read the Deadline info a little more closely. Dammit, maybe next time! (though I would still appreciate an answer to my query.) Thanks.
