Aliens

Game Art Challenge #23
Subject Ė Aliens



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


I donít remember much from that dreadful night, but Iím going to try my best to explain what happened. It started of like every other night. Me, alone in my bed, cozy, warm, falling asleep watching my favorite TV show. A flash of light filled my room, blinding me for what felt like a second. As I regained my sight, I was no longer in my room. My new surroundings consisted of metal walls and floors. I went from being warm and cozy, to cold and confused. As if that wasnít strange enough, a door opens from one of the walls; a bright light shines through as a few creatures walked into the room. The light made it hard for me to see their faces, but I could tell they were not human. Then, they did things to me. It wouldnít have been so bad, if I could have just seen their faces and maybe knew their names.

Due Date: Sunday June 1st 11:59pm GMT


Idea:

Create an Alien. You can use an already existing concept, or, you can be as original as you want.

Poly limit:

20,000 tris total. You can do whatever you want with these, just donít get carried away and donít exceed the 20,000 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 20,000 tris is too much for you, use 5,000, or 15,000. Itís ok, I wonít mind.

Textures:

-1 x 2048 Color Map
-1 x 2048 Reflection Map
-1 x 2048 Specular Map
-1 x 2048 Specular Color Map
-1 x 2048 Normal Map
-1 x 2048 Bump Map
-1 x 2048 Opacity (transparency) Map
-1 x 2048 Glow map
-1 x 2048 Glossiness map.

You can 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.

-If you submit a final entry, you must also vote when the time comes or your entry will be disqualified.

Final Pictures:

Required In The Final Post (1 post per entry):

-1 A link to your W.I.P. thread.

- 1 x Winning shot. This image should consist of your subject depicted in its most awesome angle.

- 1 x Beauty shot of your subject. Feel free to put multiple angles of your subject or just one big version or your subject on this page. You are free to do whatever post effects you like on this image. Be careful how you do this though, simple is often better. Itís up to you.

- 1 x Construction shot of your subject. Feel free to put multiple wire frame shots or just one big wire frame shot on this page. It is up to you.

- 1 x Texture sheet that includes all your used sheets squeezed into "one" sheet.

- Concept Sheet (if you have one)



Prizes: (4 entries required)

1st Place Prize: £30 worth of 3DTotal downloadable products. This can
include any 3DTotal ebooks, magazines issues, subscriptions or downloadable texture DVDs, and products can be chosen from here: http://shop.3dtotal.com/

Hell yeah, I might make something this time, however I can't model organic stuff or sculpt at all. But maybe it's time to learn that now...
