If I wanted to set up a contest, what would I have to do? I was thinking that it would be a good exercise to concentrate on creating a social environment in blender rather than just graphics. The environment would have social structure, interactions, and have the appearance that each character in it is a thinking being. The basis for the environment would be based on the book Flatland which you can view for free online.
Flatland is a 2-d environment with 2-d people. Different Shapes in flatland have different social status. I like the environment of Flatland because it wouldn’t use a great deal of graphics, it can be looked at for free online, it is a very short book, and it describes its 2-d world with great detail. (however, leaves some important things out like reproduction, eating, death which might have to be dealt with creatively)
Anyway, what should I do to set up a contest for this? What kind of time frame seems reasonable? Anyone here set up a contest before? I could offer a small cash prize or I could offer a handblown glass trophy for the winner.
Let me know what you all think.
