well, its sounds nice. i hope i can make up something. i think its going to be a hard one for me (as a noob)

EDIT:

Here’s my entry. Hope i’ll get a vote this time :wink:

it’s supposed to be a viking sword and an indian spear, because some people believe that it wasn’t columbus who discovered America (and so the indians) but the vikings.[/img]

i first had this hosting.cals.nl/wesleykok/Blender/Vikings.jpg (!THIS IS NOT MY ENTRY!) but the background is an image and i didn’t know if that’s legal.

i’m in i just have to figure out what to do!

here is a negative just for fun - not a entry!

wooo…

oh! omg! i love you, whoever picked the theme! i love the vikings and know exactly what i am doing.

I am here just for the place holder

Maybe I can try to give this one a shot.

I really want to try one of these… well, wish me luck.

Man another specific topic crap.
Plus im grounded (ironically till monday so if i did try it would be crappy)
Good luck to all who do this one.

Ok, well… here’s my viking ship on a stormy sea… or something. :slight_smile:

This is my first time entering one of these things. I don’t think I’ll be around to work on it at all this weekend, so I’m just puting up what I was able to whip out today. Long time lover of blender, but haven’t devoted a lot of time to improving… hoping to change that in the future. :smiley:

EDIT:
Ok, cleaning up my entry text here. Just updated the pic again, but will probably leave it as is now for the contest. I will try to work on it some more and update the progress in the WIP forum however.

Pure, only sky, hilt and boat textures are not homemade. Shame I couldn’t finish it in time…

Maybe placeholder, if I can find the time. (3 jobs keeps you busy) :stuck_out_tongue:

If I enter this challenge, do I have to render in Blender?

I may be able to hammer something out. Placeholder.

It doesn’t necessarily have to be rendered in Blender, but to be a “pure” entry it does. Pure entries get judged higher than non-pure (impure?) entries.

The vikings’ raid to England has been successful and they have been “celebrating” all night. Poor Igor’s gonna have a headache when he wakes up…

// Forgot to say (again) that it’s pure Blender. Only the “signature” has been added in photoshop.

I’ll try…

Here is my entry, it is a sterotypical viking funeral scene.

I don’t know if it’s pure or open. The background is Terragen and the longship is an earlier model but was smashed up and burned for this render. All the rest is new. I’ll leave the decision to wiser minds than mine…

Well, I’ve only used Blender 4 or 5 times, not really learning anything each time, lol, but I came up with this, I just couldn’t figure out how to get the axe or horns like I wanted :-/

Hi everybody, I’m new to Week contests so I’d like to ask you some questions.
[>] How can I participe to the contest? Must I send my pictures here or can I insert them into other forums?
