    Dominance War

    Is conceptart part of this, if not why not?

    I was thinking that. Conceptart entrants would provide a nice balance to the overriding emphasis on 3D work. Too late for this round but perhaps next year.

    I've always wondered why CA never took up the challenge....

    It's a game art challenge for real-time assets. Concept art is involved, but it's not the finished product. CGTalk has a similar competition, on site, for both 2D and 3D.

    Actually, concept art is part of the final product unless Fred's changing it this year, and I don't think he is. Concept art forms part of the final for the main challenge and it's judged directly together with the final artwork. I think CA needs to get in there because DW is huge now and I think CA could get a decent team together. I'd go with CA rather than CGSoc simply because CGSoc is gravitating strongly towards 3D now and whilst the 2D community is big in terms of numbers, it's nothing like it was.

    To my knowledge most participating sites allow you to enter in either the 2D category or the 3D category...? I know on polycount last year they had some 2D entries alongside the 3D in the competition forum. I suppose it might be nice for CA to get involved but truthfully I'm not sure I really see huge benefit, just so there's another community name in the pot?

    I've considered entering in the past, but always wound up being busy or in the process of moving around those times. Might consider it for fun in the next year or two.

    Oh yeah, reading more, there's a seperate 2D category - as well as a new animation category this year, apparently. So if you want to participate, go ahead. There's tons of participating communities. Personally, I'd have to go with polycount. Can't betray greentooth.

    Most forums just tend to go one way or the other, but its open to choose 2d/3d or both for that matter.

    I always thought CA would get in it, but it never seems to happen, to bad considering this is the last DW.

    Pretty sure Fred said it, unless he meant the last one he will run.

    Anyone doing the Pre-Dom challenge? Four weeks to create a 3D character, concept art, or a 3D animation.

    I originally read the title as "Dominican War" and I was like "but isn't it a peaceful island paradise?"
