Challenge #2: October-November 2007 - Lost Valley

Hi there and welcome to our second Matte Painting Challenge!

The first one went out quite well, and we decided to step further and bring a classic yet interesting theme here.
  • Topic: Lost Valley

This time there are no elements and limits so let your imagination fly!

Below you can find some examples and inspirations:







Note: Please submit only final images here! For work in progress and feedback please use our sub-forums here: http://forums.3dtotal.com/forumdisplay.php?f=92 (In fact I encourage you to use it as often as you can)

Note: The minimum accepted width/height is of 1024px and the recommended one is 1600px.


Judging

The challenge will end on October 31th, after which we will temporary lock the thread while we pick the winners.
EDIT: We extended the challenge with one more month so the new deadline is November 15th

We will judge the following aspects of your images:

- Originality
- Topic Fidelity
- Technical Execution
- Composition
- Impression

This month's board is formed by:

Tiberius Viris – Suirebit-3DT
Waheed Nasir - waheed nasir-3DT
Tom Greenway – tom-3DT
Richard Tilbury – rich-3DT
Chris Perrins – Chrisp-3DT


Good luck and have fun!
If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me!

Great Topic Suirebit!

This is going to be fun! Now to re-arrange my schedule again to fit this challenge!

The things you do just to give time to the things you like....

BTW, since its lost vally and no elements have been specified, can we post fantasy-like images?

Thanks again, and to all the guys who woud want to join, good luck and have fun!

Lost Valley entry

Hi everyone,

Here's my entry for the competition. The way this worked out the style is more traditional painting than matte painting. I hope this is okay.

I've copied this to the new forum thread for final images:

yes, he posted wrongly, no worries, I'll move it there.

Guys do you want the challenges to run for 2 months? I'll probably have to delay the deadline again....
