Default Feb. 2016 - March 2016 Resource Appreciation

Welcome Back to Resource Appreciation!

This bi-monthly theme is:

It's all in the numbers...

The primary idea behind this is to create a render using the site resources makes the viewer think "WOW! That's a lot of ______!" You get to fill in the blank!

This is a great chance to test instancing or play around with multiple meshes at once. Remember to make it impressive, but not so cluttered it detracts from your vision of what you want to express.


Some ideas might be:
  • A huge fleet of starships heading to confront the borg.
  • A swarm of alien ships invading Earth
  • An endless cityscape of Courascant with thousands of flying vehicles
  • 10,000 xwings attacking a death star

The whole point of this contest is to have fun, learn new skills, and create new ideas. It’s meant as a way for members to enjoy the process when they have the time and inclination and provides a mechanism to be recognized by your peers at the end of each contest. And it is meant as a way of saying thanks to all of those members who provide models, textures and presets for everyone to enjoy.

So enjoy, I know I will be looking forward to your creativity, ingenuity and genius.

RULES


1. Images must be at least 1024 resolution (1024 x 768) or higher.

2. At least one item from the Foundation 3D Resources must be highlighted in the image. Premiere Content is also suitable.

3. An image can be submitted without Foundation 3D Resources, but it must meet two criteria:
a) The image must contain one 3D model or background created by the artist submitting the image.
b) The resource they created must be uploaded to F3D on the same day the image is submitted so other people may use it in future Resource Appreciation contests.

4. Each member may enter two images per contest - Images must be posted in the Resource Appreciation contest thread and the 3D Stills forum. Collaboration between member is welcomed and encouraged.

5. You may use models from other sources so long as requirement two or three is met.

6. You must provide details in your post crediting authors, sources, etc.

7. Images may be done using any application and pipeline available to you.

8. Images must be hosted using our hosting.

9. Polling will begin the first week of each contest, for the previous contest, and will last for one week.

10. The voting will not be just a popularity vote. Voters are asked to consider not only the look and quality of the image, but also the uniqueness and creativity of the image. This is done to encourage beginning artists to submit works as well as seasoned veterans.

Excellent! The more the merrier. You can have two entries per contest.
I always wanted to repro a fleet scene from Starship troopers.

You reminded me of something I did a couple years back or so!

So, here's my first entry. I'm saying first, because it wasn't specifically made for this contest,and even if resources from F3D were used, I will try to do another one! But, it fits me thinks.

Klendathu



Credits:
  • Roger Young & Dropship by rustythe1
  • Background, composition & FX by me

Software used:
  • Lightwave
  • Photoshop

I've also had some additional fun with the picture, but this one is not for the contest, just thought I should add it for sake of completion: http://bit.ly/1Kchns0

Sure, if it's OK with you? I'm just saying, I will likely create a second one, specifically for the contest.

Default Shadow Fleet

Quick and dirty, but fits the bill

Can't recall the episode's name, but the shadows flying over Centauri Prime. Could've upped the numbers(only 1000 and lots are past camera) but it looks 'crowded' with too many for the sake of it. Think this is more inline with the actual episode.

Crab is by Nadab Göksu and is in the resource section.

Cheers.

I like it. Really does give that creepy feeling the fleet did in the show.
