Hello, I've just mailed the AVATAR guys and am waiting for instructions on how they want the structure of the final entries to be set up, so as soon as I hear back from them I'll get that sorted. It will need to obvious follow how they're doing things their end, so will let you know when we get this sorted

hey Xeni, what you need to do is first open your thread, than go to your first post click on edit than advance options. once the advance edit option diologue appears go to attachment tab and browse/attach your image from your computer and save and you are done. just keep doing that everytime you have an update. hope it helps.

cheers,
Idan

Hello, I've heard back from the organisers of the AVATAR competition and I have been told that they will be creating a user gallery for all artists to upload their works to directly. They are starting work on setting this up now, and they will announce for us before the final date where and how everyone is to upload their work, in time for the deadline. They apologise for the small delay.

I'm not sure! I would suggest you go with RGB as the main work is being done for screen, and then you can always convert the image to CMYK at a later date if the work is to be printed for any reason.

So I have one question before I create my thread (a bit late I must ad)

I don´t know if I what to do a 3D or 2D image, or actually I don't know in which category my image would be placed. I use almost everything in 3D but then I paint over everything in photoshop so it looks more 2D.
In what category am I going to place my entry?

Hi mr_carl,

I've just recapped on the rules and it states:

Quote:
Categories

2D Illustration
3D Image
Comic (Cartoon) Style Image

For the 2D category you can use any 2D software package (Corel Painter, Adobe Photoshop, etc.) and/or any traditional mediums, like colour pencils, acrylics or oil paints, to create the final image.

For the 3D category you can use any 3D software for modelling and rendering. For post-processing you can use any compositing software (Apple Shake, Eyeon Digital Fusion, Adobe After Effects, etc.). To clarify things, you must provide a clean render ("as is") without any post-production effects in a WIP sheet (see WIP Sheet section for further details).

For the comic (cartoon) style category you can use any 2D/3D software package and/or any traditional mediums like colour pencils, acrylics, or oil paints to create the final image.
Thinking it over, the rules require that if you submit a 3D entry then you must provide a clean render without any post-production as part of your submission, so if you're simply going to create models in 3D to then paint over, this may not be your category. I'm actually not entirely sure - it seems like you're borderline. Can you give me a more detailed outline of how you're going to create the final image, including the software you're going to use?

If you're going for a comic/stylised entry then you'd easily be fine in that category, as this one seems to encompass both 2D and 3D! But if you're not going for a cartoon/stylised image, please let me know some more info and I'll think some more on it ... I will also get in touch with the guys running the challenge to check on it for you.

Hi Lynette,

Thanks for such a quick answer.
So here is a quick walkthrou of the way Im working.

First I create the scene in Modo to get the layout I want. I then put some basic shaders on my objects and light the scene to get a ground image.
After rendering out the scene with the alfas, ao, reflection etc. channels I open photoshop and kind of recreates most part of the image, place textures and colourcorrect, creates background etc. and then Im done.
It files like Im on the borderline but I think have a great concept so I dont want to miss this challenge.

Hey mr_carl, I've just mailed the guys running the challenge so I'll see what they say. I'm tempted to think you're in the 3D category - it's tricky to say for sure without checking with the organisers, so I'll let you know when I hear back from them - shouldn't be long at all

Hi, I just got this feedback:

If you use 3D tools and other stuff just as helping materials and reference to make a 2D illustration, then it should be placed in 2D.

Does that help...?
