Game Art Challenge #16
Subject Ė The Evolution



Thread Naming: Your Name Ė Evolution
Keep all questions in this thread


With all this talk about the end of the world, the smartest scientist gathered to create a super human cure in preparation for what may come. This potion of sorts, was supposed to be able to shield the human body from any and all viruses Mother Nature could throw at us. It was supposed to be the end all to viral based deaths. They were wrong. The one thing those scientist didnít account for, Mother Natureís ability to adapt. She doesnít play by our rules, she makes her own. The Mayans werenít entirely wrong. The world as we know has come to an end. In an attempted to save lives, mankind doomed the world. Now all life on Earth has changed, Evolved, into something, different. All animals, all insects, all humans, nothing is what we are use to. The Evolved ones run things now.

Due Date: Sunday February 17th 11:59pm GMT

Idea:

So hereís the thing, the theme is evolution, what you decide to evolve, is up to you. You can create a human type character, an animal of any kind, insects, or, for you environment types, make a ďpedestalĒ environment that shows what you think the world looks like in this new age. If you want to go bigger than a piece of a city, go for it, but keep the due date in mind when coming up with an idea.

Poly limit:

12,000 Tris Total. You can do whatever you want with these, just donít get carried away and donít exceed the 12,000 Tri Limit. Remember, the limit tells you where to stop, there is no minimum, so use as much of the limit as you see fit. If 12,000 tris is too much for you, use 5,000, or 3,000. Itís ok, I wonít mind.

Textures:

-1 x 1024 Color Map
-1 x 1024 Reflection Map
-1 x 1024 Specular Map
-1 x 1024 Specular Color Map
-1 x 1024 Normal Map
-1 x 1024 Bump Map
-1 x 1024 Opacity (transparency) Map
-1 x 1024 Glow map
-1 x 1024 Glossiness map.

You can not chop it up into multiple smaller textures.

Textures can be hand-painted or you can use photographic sources. Do what you do.



Pedestals/Stands:

You do not have to create one, but if you do, understand that there is no texture or tri limit. You can go as crazy as you want, or keep it basic.


Restrictions:

-Joint entries are OK for this challenge. You can work with a concept artist, thatís it. You must do all modeling yourself, that includes any and all sculpting.

-Your entry must be specifically created for this challenge. Do not use any pieces from previous personal works.

-There are no lighting restrictions.

-All Game/Render Engines are allowed.

-You must create a W.I.P Thread to show off your work in progress.
