Instructions Guidelines and FAQ's

Welcome to the Stylized Animal Monthly Challenge, sponsored by Zoo Publishing Magazines and 3DTotal. Please post all questions in this thread.

What is this challenge all about?
Each month we will select an animal and post some images as reference. All you have to do is create a 3d render of this creature in a stylized/abstact/cartoon style whilst keeping your creature instantly recongnizable. We wanted to publish some content in 3DCreative Magazine on how to create stylized animals such as you see in the many feature films and cartoon galleries. We thought this regular competition might bring in just the images/making ofs we need whilst giving away great prizes and exposure. If it's a success we will start to boost the prizes up as much as possible!

What are we looking for?
Funny and humourous entries which break the animal down to its most recognizable components, enphasize these in whichever ways you think best and render your stylized/abstact/cartoon masterpiece.

Timeframes and requirements?
The rules are pretty laid back: please submit 1x3d render; minor post work is ok; it's up to you if you want to have a background or include some graphical elements or text on your image. Renders of the 800 pixel dimension sound about right, but the top 10 will be featured in 3DCreative Magazine so if you can create some higher res images too, all the better. There will be 1 comp per month, with the deadline being the end of the month GMT. A new thread will be started at the end of the month called the 'VOTING' thread. For a valid entry, just make sure your final image is posted in the 'VOTING' thread before the 8th of the following month. Voting will then start on the 8th of the month and will continue until the 16th, when the winners will be announced.

We require the top 3 winners to submit 'making of' overview articles that will be shown on either 3DTotal or 3DCreative Magazine , these need to show the stages of your creation, different elements and some brief explanation text, of why and how you did what you did. We will format this into some nice looking pages to give you some great exposure and us some quality content.

Posting Works in Progress?
Each competition will have one main thread that starts with the brief at the top. This is where all entrants post all WIPs give feedback and generally laugh at the crazy ideas that are emerging each month. Please dont start any new threads! Just reply to the one already set up.

Top3 Winners need to submit "making of" overview.........thats cool

But here in the thread, do we need to POST the final render only [that can be more than 800res] or here also we need to POST the WIPs the way far............

'N ya may we make a TOON 3d Model from an inspired idea, thats not purely original

thx

Hi,
In the thread, you only need to post the 800px render. We dont need anything else posted unless you would like to show the WIP as it goes along.

Thanks

Inspired by something that is not entirly original.... I guess that's ok but I guess the more it starts to look like someone elses work the less chance you have of winning.

Tom
its just like I saw an attempt in TOONS in Traditional Drawing that I found very inspiring & wanted to turn that 3D & feel it is right applicable here

it will be only theme taken from that Something not a copy of that, design & model will be original

One question:

is it "do what the heck you want" or are there poly- and texture size limits?

Hi Glottis, there are no technical limits, as long as its a 3d model/render that's all we care about.

Thanks

A lot of people seem to be making the subject into a themed biped, this is fine as it's an open brief, but we would rather see a stylized toon version on the subject as the guidelines above suggest.

Here's a great example, if the subject was 'rooser' this would make a great entry

Minor post work is ok - means you can do a few touch ups in photoshop if required.

We like to see concepts and wips, but they are not necessary if you dont want to.

Thanks!
