Good or Evil?

Nice entries so far. Hopefully more to follow.

Here is my entry. I made two beauty renders, with varying trees/atmosphere/textures in vue 8.5. They represent 'Good' (colourful trees + light buildings) and 'Evil' (dead trees, red sky, dark buildings). I did this as Medieval Fantasy is mostly about good vs. evil.

The bridge and the tower are made in 3Dsmax, the rest in Vue. I also broke my 'polygon record' with my new pc totalling more than 8152 million polygons. The render that took the most time was the 'Good' render, although it was in a bigger resolution than shown on the picture (800x600). I used global illumination with superior render settings (I also tried a ultra render for a resolution of 1200x900, but I quit that after it only was half way done after 8 hours).

Hope you like it

P.S. Which render you like the most?

Neil_F01, I was just stating my opinion. Maybe it was my monitor? I don't know, but I couldn't see it very well. I think it looks much better now, but it's just me. Feel free to disagree.

lunarion6, very cool. I like the night time one, but they're both great! Now start animating an epic battle spanning that bridge!!!

Thanks for the nice words

And, about the point of joining in, as for myself, I learned a lot during these contests, improved my workspeed at least 100%, probably more.
Got me thinking about what hotkeys to use and where to place them, created a few macroscripts just because I thought something could be done in less time after a smc.
Just try a few and you will treat the program different, more efficient, which is extremely valuable for all things concerning 3d .

True, I learned a lot of the things I entered in these challenges. As it gives you a certain limit (in time and concept) and a deadline I learned a lot of new things in making 3D and actually finish my models (the deadline is really great for lazy finishers like me xd)
