General suggestions, chat etc all go here, if you have a specific question about a challenge that's running then it's best to post that at the same place as the challenges brief and the particular mod of that challenge will help you.

Cheers

I just wanted to say the last challenge was great to do. I liked it how you could mix everything you know to complete the image. The challenges have keep me focused and Ive learnt a lot from having this focus.

Thanks

Sculpting challenge, the last one didn't really feel like one at all, for me it was more like high-res modeling, what i would really like is a old school challenge,one with pre-set basemesh for everyone.

I think we are going to have a month of rest people, the costs, organization, prizes etc etc are getting on top of us a little bit so we just need a short break. Will be back in full force on 1st June.

Many thanks

Tom

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but was there any try to start a monthly challenge of lightning?
I don't know if there would be any interest in that, but i would sure join every month (and i'm also sure that Tarik would love to show off his lightning skills too)

It could relate to the theme too.. last month could have been a deep forest scene, and the Gift to the Gods could have been an altar of some sort..
Modeling a basic scene, and lightning it with any kind of engine.

A lighting challenge is a good idea, but it might have to be a texturing and lighting challenge and the modelled scene is provided.

I'm not sure that providing the scene for everyone could work, because it would not be as "colorful" as if everyone would do their own scene.

I mean this could be something like using the same character model for the Game Art challenge, and see who can make a better job on the texturing, sculpting and on the other stuff.

Well, of course a complex scene's modeling texturing, and lightning takes more time, but its worth a try

But of course, using the same scene would really show off who did the best job with the lightning, and the texturing, which is actually the goal but you know, it could be a bit boring.
Or not?

Thanks for your response anyway!

I would like to ask someone from 3DT team help me (not now, only when you guys will have free time) to find links on previous challenge results, like this one:
http://www.3dtotal.com/articles/chal...ch_results.php

I saw many of them before, but now I can't find anything, only final work threads. It will be nice to have the archive of those pages.
