    SUPER Stylised Challenge - May 2008 - Carnivorous Plant!

    Welcome to the SUPER Stylised Animal Monthly Challenge – Sponsored by 3DTotal.com and 2DArtist Magazine . Please post all images & questions in this thread.

    So what is this challenge all about?
    Each month we will select a title for the Super Stylised Challenge, and we'll post some images for you to use as reference. The title is there to be interpreted as and how you wish. All you have to do then is to think up your concept, model it, and create a final 2D image of this in your own way!

    This regular monthly challenge is designed to bring in some great content for 2DArtist Magazine – in the form of final images from the Top Ten and Making Ofs from the top 3 winners – as well as some great prizes and exposure just for you!

    What are we looking for?
    Funny and humorous entries which interpret the title of the Super Stylised Challenge however you see fit. We’re pretty much leaving everything open for your interpretation and stylisation!! All we ask is that the title of the Super Stylised Challange is instantly recognisable in your final image! All you have to do then is to render your stylised/abstract/cartoon masterpiece and you’re away!

    What are the timeframes and requirements?
    The rules are pretty laid back: please submit 1 x 2D Final Image. If you want to have a background or include some graphical elements or text on your image, it's entirely up to you. Image posts should be around 800 pixels across, but please work at a much higher res as the top 10 will be featured in 2DArtist Magazine .
    There will be 1 challenge per month, with the deadline being the end of the month GMT. A 'VOTING' thread will be created at the end of the month.
    For a valid entry, you must make sure your final image is posted in both the WIP thread before the end of the month, and then in the 'VOTING' thread before the 8th June 2008. Voting will take place from the 8th June to the 15th June 2008, when the winners will be announced!
    We require the top 3 winners to submit 'Making Of' overview articles that will be shown on either 3DTotal or in 2DArtist Magazine ; these need to show the stages of your creation, different elements and some brief explanation text of why, and how, you did what you did. We will format this into some nice-looking pages to give you some great exposure, and us some quality content. This will serve as some great exposure for you which, along with your prizes, is a pretty cool incentive to get involved!

    Everyone has to post their FINAL image in the WIP thread before the end of the month deadline, as well as their WIPs during the month. You then have to post it (exactly the same final image) again in the VOTING thread. This means there is a very clear deadline: no-one can work after the end of the month and the VOTING thread still exists as before, as this is a nice clean thread with final images only which is used for the judging!

    Posting Works in Progress
    Each challenge will have one thread that starts with this info and the brief at the top. This is where all entrants post all WIPs, give feedback, and generally laugh at the crazy ideas that are emerging each month!

    Please don't start any new threads – just reply to this one already set up!

    Prizes!!
    1st Place Any 3 items from the 3DTotal Shop. We sell lots of items these days, such as our book , Design Studio Press books, textureCDs, Shorts DVDs, lots of training DVDs, and 12 month subscriptions to 2DArtist Magazine and 2DArtist Magazine .

    2nd Place
    Any 2 items from the 3DTotal Shop.

    3rd Place
    Any 1 item from the 3DTotal Shop.

    We do unfortunately have to limit prizes to 1 book per winner per challenge, due to high postage costs for heavier items.

    Judging
    Everyone who took part can cast a vote of their top 3 in order, and the 3DTotal/2DArtist team will also cast their votes. We will award 3pts for a 1st place vote, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd. Then we will add them up and ship out your prizes!

    *This month we have chosen CARNIVOROUS PLANT!

    hahaha, i LOVE that last one - crazy isn't it?! I thought about putting it first, but then thought I'd save the best till last. I'm actually not sure what it is... let me research..

    Okay, here's the source from where that last image came from: http://hem.bredband.net/sim1/malay/kinab/kinab_04.html - Enjoy!

    Hi!

    With the encouragement of my friend who's a member here also here is my very first time to try and join any challenge so here goes my interpretation... WIP Carnivorous Plant.

    Travelers unaware, their eyes decieve them! What seems to be frightening are less harmful but the ones that are covered with flowers!

    Cheers!
    Rodny

    28thwing, nice pencils, i like the one in the middle the most. that grin is evil.

    brather, i think your first pencil sketches are pretty good. particularly the one in the middle has some cool elements like the spikey hair.

    tuovni, looks like a fun scene. good "curves" in those pencils. the cropping is quite tight atm, but this will make a cool piece no doubt.

But I am enthralled with the amazing work diplayed here so far and hope that I can make this peice come together the way I would like in the next few days. Here is the thumbnail for the color sketch I will upload later this evening.I am really wanting to use of line and color to make this peice pop. Good luck everybody the work looks great. : )
