  • Wow... A 3D print of the winning entry and one entry randomly chosen from the top ten! We will need access to the model files to do this, the winners are allowed to decline. In that case or if the model somehow does not lend itself to 3D printing a full color poster-size 2D print of the entry will be substituted.

wait, what? you're planning and doing sketches?!?! Next thing you're going to tell me that you read the instruction manual too!

Ha!

Initial sketches complete.  That gets me on the right track every time.**

As near as I can tell, forever 'reading the manual' is what keeps me from ever finishing a contest entry!  ;) 

 

**I'm a little frustrated with my current sketches because they aren't from the 'proper' camera angle I envision the final image to be in.

But I need to accept that and just dive in at this point because things always change in the process of converting ideas to splines and patches anyway.  Although, I would like to do a few more thumbnails just to feel more of that wonderful sensation of pencil on paper.

Would you believe I haven't begun my entry yet?

That can only mean one thing... a deadline extension!

Now... November 30!

If you thought you only had three weeks left, now you have... twelve-ish?

Thanks!  I needed that!

I've been modeling a little of late and am realizing just how rusty I am.

More time to work on an entry is much appreciated.

If you can figure out how to get those seagulls into the ;Prehistoric' theme you'll be good to go! :)

giant Canadian pterosaur

‘Frozen Dragon of the North’

(page takes a long time to load ads >: )

the video has a brief turn of a model they made of the creature and is the first time I'm understood how they could walk with their wings folded and used as front legs.

Prehistoric tutorial! (It's old!)

If you are working on a laptop without a numeric keypad or one of those newfangled tablets that has no keyboard at all... you need the onscreen numeric keypad to navigate the viewport!

Prehistoric tutorial! (It's old!)

Learn to use A:M's auto backup feature!

I was working on a complicated Smart Skin today and had a crash. i hadn't saved my work in nearly half an hour... but A:M had made a save just two minutes earlier! That saved me a lot of rework.

Prehistoric tutorial!

Your creature will need some decals to ugly him up.

"Snapshot" helps you get your wireframes into your paint program, and get your decals back out with perfect alignment!
