Hello all –
It would seem that Blendswap has started a new contest:
apparently the “assignment” is to design, model, texture and rig/pose a “fantasy” character.
This is pretty cool – fantasy is pretty loosely defined so there is a lot of freedom.
Design, model, texture, rig and pose an original fantasy humanoid character.
You can use concepts under creative commons licenses (BY, BY-SA) or public domain works and/or works used with explicit, written permission).
Copyrighted material and/or fan art is not allowed.
Characters may be high poly, but multiresolution is not allowed in the final version (ie, you can sculpt and bake normal maps to a moderately high poly character [recommended]).
Characters should be rigged and posed before uploading, the render should be obtainable by just hitting F12 in Blender.
What is really cool is the judges –
Jonathan Williamson everyone knows
Greg Zaal who is a great guy out of Blender Nerd
and Lee Salvemini – Sintel’s art director
So – anyone have ideas or know people with cool concepts?
