Female CG character contest

Recommended Posts

The prizes may not be of great use to A:M users and the judging criteria are rather hazy, but a lot of you already have great looking female characters on the shelf that might be dusted off to be worthy entries.

We have more than a few people that can win in this category.

I note that it doesn't mention a file format but I would assume at least one copy submitted would need to be OBJ.

 

Some info from the contest:

The Female Character challenge is open to all designers, no matter their field: both high poly and low poly models can enter the competition.
Submit your female model to the corresponding category:

  • Realistic character (regular women, historical figures, girls, etc., representing various professions, including everyday people)
  • Imaginary character (sci-fi, cartoon, fantasy, stylized, etc.)

Submissions deemed to be adult content are not eligible to participate in the contest.

 

I see this as well:

Although less common, OBJ seems to be a format that has been submitted.

As always, read the fine print, before you rush into anything.

Can we get an editorial opinion from Jason Simonds on 3D-Coat’s voice ? I've never seen such a thing in CGI circles afore. There is a bit of a snag(disadvantage) using A:M and then submitting an .obj as they bequest... when I open an obj in C4D that I made in A:M, there is considerable rebuilding to get it halfway presentable, and I am sure there would be work to do as well down the line if you opened it in Maya or Houdini or Max... plus the fact that some of the cool A:M features would need to be reinvented altogther or just forgotten- like A:M hair or SSS...

It may be impractical on format grounds, I agree.


Yeah, the voice thing is weird. It's like they invented the typewriter and now are worried that someone's writing dirty books with it.

Eh?

 

This is quite a very old controversy (the 3D coat voice thing). Circa 2007 even.

 

Regarding the OBJ thing... say on. Say on.

I didn't see anywhere where OBJ was suggested but I doubt they will easily be able to open native .mdl files.

I'd be happy to be wrong in this.

Of course perhaps we can include a subscription to A:M along with our entries.

Well, that shows how little attention I've been paying to them.

If your entry can't get passed that morality clause, you're probably not getting the point of the contest. :-)

 

They are looking for *female-friendly* female models to encourage young girls to consider the CGI/gaming industry ...not over-sexualized pinups.
