I voted for BillyA as it was obvious he put a lot of effort into his entry! Some nice detail as well! Nice job man.

(FlyingBanana) #3

Awesome entries everyone!

(Iridesium) #4

I like your sort of odd style Millani.

(fcharr) #5

I really like purbosky’s entry, got my vote. As for my own entry, the title was taken from a line found in two Sabbath songs:

“living in the fast lane is easy till you run out of road” - A hard life to love

“Too late, now the race is on, and you’ve run out of road” - Too Late[SUB][SUP]

(darkphoenix) #6

ZavalasAgent got my vote. I had in mind something similar (but no time to do it) but I also really like the low-poly look in this entry.

EDIT: Double posted by accident.

(Millani) #8

I just realized that four entries are called “The End”. It seems to be the end of ideas for titles… :slight_smile:

Thanks! Do you mean the style this time or in general? This week I essentially did things as they came to mind, and didn’t complete other things due to time (for example, the guy is wearing no shirt simply because I did not have the time to model one).

(Iridesium) #9

@Millani I like this one and the other rocket one. They look like book illustrations or something.

(Ford) #10

I’m quite surprise not many voted for purbosky
such a nice color there

(purbosky) #11

Thanks, fcharr & Ford. My entry is somewhat inspired by nuclear missile scene in Skyline movie.

(g6b0r) #12

it was hard to choose again.
this time i put my single vote for ZavalasAgent.
but other entries looks good as well, for example the one form Iridesium, TomZed or like.

(BillyA) #13

This is so far pretty close can’t wait to see the final results

(fcharr) #14 :slight_smile:

(Millani) #15

Glad to hear it. I was afraid the shape of the head could be a bit too weird.

Some comments on the entries:

MACEPRODUCTIONS: The chairs look very realistic, and the one out-of-focus on the foreground makes the viewer feel like they are sitting on one. I also liked how the absence of something is the main point of the image.

RC12: Nice usage of silhouettes. The effect with the camera is also pretty interesting, giving the impression the camels are going up on a slope, when actually it is a plane and the camera is tilted. The mountains are also pretty, are they an HDRi or geometry?

purbosky: At least for the eye on the tower this is the end! I liked the design of the tower and the sense of movement.

Munno101: The planet looks pretty nice. I also liked how both objects look massive. The asteroid seems to be well detailed, but I can’t see much of it. Also, I think litting the planet from the left would have made the lighting more balanced.

fcharr: I liked the materials on the road and the desert, they look a bit soft somehow. The grass was a nice touch.

hatzgoura: Coming out of that one isn’t going to be easy! Although the bullets might just fly through the holes on his body :wink:
I liked this style with people full of holes, it is pretty bizarre.

TomZed: Very surrealistic. The sky and lights are beautiful too. I liked the strong feeling of loneliness of the image.

FlyingBanana: Poor ants, they look desperate! The person with the magnifying glass sure is the antagonist :slight_smile:
Their faces look pretty funny, and the grass looks nice. But their legs look a bit strange, I thought the two longs one were some kind of stick.

BillyA: Wow, that’s a lot of stuff! And everything looks so busy! I liked the industrial vibe and the details on the mech, but why is it raining indoors?

ZavalasAgent: I liked the style, it looks as if the stones were made of paper. The trees growing sideways are also pretty funny. The contrast between magical purple below and rough gray above was pretty nice.

like: The trail of the asteroid looks pretty cool (no idea how there is fire on space, but anyway), but the Earth looks a bit strange. There is a reflection in the middle which is pretty weird. You might want to check a tutorial from Blender Guru about how to make the Earth.

Iridesium: Impressive amount of detail! The dinosaur and explosion look pretty awesome. The texture on the dinosaur looks pretty good too. My only issue is that my eyes feel a bit lost on the image. Should I focus on the dinosaur in the front? The center of the image is quite foggy, and there are many things blocking the view to the explosion.

beau11: Haha, I thought you were too old for cartoons (but maybe there is no such thing as “too old” for cartoons :D). Funny how the sun is waving goodbye before setting. I just think the style clash between toon and realistic got a bit weird. The bright sun does not seem to illuminate the trees, for example.

Helge: You managed to capture the dusty emptiness of the desert pretty well. I liked those birds, they look pretty funny (and there is also a bunch of them, how many people died there?). The light just seems to be a bit too small to be the sun. Is it maybe a train oO?

OLG: In real life, that would be the end of the warrior, but in computer games, he just needs to eat a big chunk of ham or drink a healing potion and he is good to go! I liked the pose and the way that the sword kind of marks his grave. The hair also looks pretty nice.

RobertT: I suppose that the mind of a chess player must look like this. All the chaos of the endless possibilities, but somehow it all makes sense. I see some L shapes here and there, do they represent the movements of the knight?

Photox: Nice hidden suzanne, it took me a while to see her. I liked the mystical feeling of the image and how the little stabs can be seen as buildings.

Thanks for the constructive criticism! Something felt off about the lighting so thank you for pointing out the tree illumination. I did have a sun lamp in there but I think I needed some extra intensity or an emission plane!

As for the style clash thanks for the honesty. Ive seen some very creative blends between the two styles and I wanted to take a shot at it. Obviously I’m not at that level yet though.

The Last One

(Helge) #18

Congratulations TomZed!

@Millani: Thanks! I guess the birds redirected some tracks in order to ensure a steady flow of new ‘visitors’. :slight_smile:
And, you are right about the sun. It seems to be disappearing into deep space. :wink:

TomZed, Congrats!

@Millani, thanks for the comments as always.
