Default December, 2006: Winter Treehouse

Ok, time for the December contest...

The theme this month is to design a treehouse in winter... this is of course open ended as far as the type of 'house' and the type of tree, but I got the idea from this book that I recently found:

http://www.amazon.com/Treehouse-Book...e=UTF8&s=books

Now this can be a single house in a tree, a village in a bunch of trees (treetown), etc.

For those doing 3D, the best resources for building trees as a start point/reference are OnyxTreePro, Vue, Xfrog or Maya Paint Effects... Plus Ethan Summers did a cool paintfx DVD where he shows how to start with a PaintFX tree and then refine it using zbrush.

good luck!

edit:

Ok, so here are the winners!
Really amazing entries this time around, and with the holiday spirit and all, well... we couldn't just narrow it down to four.
Thanks to everyone who participated! We really enjoyed seeing your interpretations of this month's theme.



The winners will be contacted via the email used to sign up on the forum.
Happy New Year everyone...

-Alex

Awards Showcase

Default

Hi,

I was on the site to add a few dvd's to my XMAS wish list and saw this contest - cool idea...

My questions:

I am making a 3D entry, do I post the final image here or do I start a new thread in the 3D image gallery?

Also, I am making an entry just for this contest - is that allright or does it have to be something that was already made?

Are there any image format requests, i.e. image size min/max - image extension, etc?

Thanks,

Diabolos

Hi Diabolos,

you post your final image in this thread. Do not open a new one.

There is no image size specification. Just post something that can actually fit into a standard 1600x1200 resolution. Otherwise we will have to scroll sideways to look at your image.

You can make a new image. Just check the previous months challenges and you can get an idea.

Take care... good luck... and Merry Christmas!

Ricardo.

Default So Cool !

Hi! This contest is great ! I'm pretty new to Maya, but getting gradually used to the interface. The only 3D graphic software I used in the past was "Infini-D.. v.4?", which had, well, a LOT of constraints compared to Maya.

I can't wait to participate to this contest so I can (maybe) learn a lot LOT more about the software. In a certain way, it's a little contradictory that the winners (that are the best of the participants), are the one getting to learn more... lol But I guess there's really no way out of this paradox.

Maybe if the prices were divided by skills?...

- 40 DVD's for the Expert (that has no time to wait to learn!, because he maybe already has a full time job in the industry, and would need to know things about the workflow of other softwares he's not already using).

- 20 DVD's for the Intermediate (That needs the 20 DVD's to complete his skills regarding that single software he's aiming for).

-10 DVD's for Noobs (like me! lol ) that are getting increasingly interrested in learning specific parts of a sofware.

Probably the problem here would be to determine what are the real skills of people,.. For exemple to get an expert to easely win the Begginer's price. That could be resolved by sending the .mb file? To see how desperately a noob has to go to get a simple scene correct. lol... The scene would be awfully constructed,.. well,.. at least different from an expert! (I guess).

I don't even know how to use "Mental Ray" yet... So If I build a treehouse, no matter how long I model it, it will never get that shinny look other contestants are achieving (in many cases, with several softwares at a time).

Anyways! I'll work on a treehouse and send it, even if it looks pretty AWFUL for the eyes of an expert. lol
See ya's!

I'm not quite sure if this entry can also take place in the challenge
So i posted this in the 3D-Section and here - sorry for the double posting

I would appriciate if anyone could delete one of those two posts.


So here the text again.

Hello!

A few days are left then its Christmas and Santa Claus is coming.
I decided to make my own chocolate Santa Claus.
Purpose was to achieve a handpainted chocolate look - with all the inperfection of the painted white and brown chocolate.
So the painted chocolate doesn't fits everything perfectly.


Modelled and rendered in Maya.
Compositing in Fusion and Photoshop.


Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone,

This is my entry to the Dezember contest.

All modeling was done in Maya, Textures and Post Production in Photoshop.
I take the pictures near by, (i'm currently living in Swiss).

Allmost everything i did learn, was in Gnomon DVD's. (which are SIMPLY the best)

Merry Christmas for all.
