Default April, 2008: Magical Fury

Hello all..

here we go... April's theme is 'Magical Fury'.

I don't know about you, but I always love seeing the different ways in which games represent how wizards, mages, sorcerers, druids and so on use magic to create death and destruction. The Diablo games + Blizzard cinematics have some pretty cool representations of this, and after visiting Blizzard today I was inspired to have this be the theme.

So in short, this month's theme calls for you to create an image that represents a magical attack. For you 3D people out there, I would definitely approach this using particles + dynamics plus perhaps a 2D paintover.

Good luck!

edit: winners announced!



winners will be contacted via email/PM.

-Alex

Are submissions made with Maya PLE acceptable? I know the watermark detracts, but it is all I can afford at the moment.

Render your scene then output a jpeg file into photo shop or corel, up res the pic and clean it up because it is the end result that Alvarez and his team will look at; not how well you created a model.

MY very first participation in this contest .

This is part of a series I am making for myself. Even though majority of the artwork is done through purely photoshop, the two characters were made using ZBrush.

Good luck to everyone.

Heres my submission CS3 and Zbrush. I'm still working on my "true" 3D skills i.e. teaching myself Max any way heres what I came up with. I was pleased with the theme of the contest especially the reference from blizz heh heres a tribute to some of the great times had playing Diablo and D2.

Nice work everyone so far.
