Blender LIVE Hour of Power Challenge!
Hello Blendermaniacs! We just had a VERY successful Hour of Power Challenge! So here’s to more!
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY OR PURCHASE OR SIGNUP FOR ZOOM
Read the guidelines HERE: https://www.blendermania3d.com/groups/blender-live-hour-of-power-challenge/forum/topic/hour-of-power-guidelines-rules-explanations/
Go ahead and comment if you want to be a part of it! The ones who just participated can comment as well however if there are people who didn’t do it last week, they will take the spot of the people who did do it last week. But go ahead and anyone comment! Even if you did it already as people may drop out etc.
What is it? 10 participants will be Blending for an hour to create the best piece of work within that hour…all on LIVE screen sharing!
How does it work? 10 participants will sign up during the week to take part in this. Then on a designated day (for now we will do saturday 3/27/21 at 12 PST) the 10 participants will join the meeting (we will be using Zoom) and there all 10 participants will share their screen (you can also share your video and audio so you can talk but it’s not required. You COULD JUST share the screen and that’s fine so no one sees or hears you) I will then give the theme RIGHT there on the spot. You will then have 10 minutes to think of what you want to make, gather reference images etc. AFTER the 10 minutes, the challenge will start and you have 1 hour to create a render based on the given theme! Once the hour is up, I will tell everyone to hit the render image button and everyone will render out their image. We will then vote for the best render and winner will get points, Certificate and Badge. This is for ANY level! It’s for fun, non judgemental environment! So even if you are brand new, enter!
Can I still watch even if I don’t participate? Absolutely! If you don’t want to be one of the 10 participating in this, you can join the livestream and just watch these awesome Blendermaniacs do Blender and chat! I encourage anyone and everyone to join even if you are not participating! This will create an awesome group dynamic for an hour of us all getting together and having fun in Blender! Bring some popcorn and watch others do some awesome Blender, maybe you’ll learn a thing or two!
The first 10 people to comment below “I want to participate” or something of the like will be picked for this coming Blender Hour of Power Challenge.
**THIS IS FOR FUN! DON’T BE SCARED IF YOU THINK YOU ARE A BEGINNER OR NOT THAT GOOD. THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS IS TO HAVE FUN AND PRACTICE IN AN INTERACTIVE WAY. SIGNUP EVEN IF YOU ARE BRAND NEW! **
Hook it straight into my veins!
if all of the hops are very successful wouldn’t that mean they are all average?
Assume I am Phillip for this one.
“I am in too”
Two native birds to NZ. Did the KIWI and extinct MOA. A bird used by the Maori as primary source of food.
Your bird looks very discontent. He like, ‘Hmph, I have to pose again’
Ever looked at an eagles eyes? They always look pissed off lol.
I slapped a quick texture on it.
and I ‘slapped like now’!
Does this make me an influencer??
It’s fun doing 1 sculpt for 1 hour isn’t it? I’ve found it to be a good workout, helped me a lot out of HoP
aaww it has one leg the poor thing… Probably due to time constraints but this one is getting an emotional reaction out of me which makes it way more successful than the rest! Well done and do use such things to your advantage! A bird with one leg due to injury is more interesting as a story!
Using words to describe the message you’re conveying through your art is like doing an impression of a celebrity and saying who it was that you impersonated.
It defeats the point and looks very cheap, if not lacking confidence or even insulting to the audience i.e I better tell them because they’re too stupid to make the connection or I better tell them because it wasn’t good enough to be clear.
I’m just saying how it looks in general, not that you did any of that.
There’s a good reason why they say a picture is worth a thousand words and there’s never a need to add another word to a picture. There’s a good reason that outside of the Product Vis biz you rarely if ever see an artist blast a word in their artwork. It speaks for itself. Always.
Think of Picasso having “WAR IS BAD” painted on Guernica… or Da Vinci having “CRYPTIC SMILE Y’ALL” on Mona Lisa… or Michaelangelo writing “CHRISTIANITY” on the Sistine Chapel ceiling…
Your piece looks good, the materials are great, the message is conveyed simply by looking at it, put it back in the render and take away that kitsch and poorly textured word, and you have the best render out of all of them.
man you have some weird birds down there! I like it, good idea going between the two extremes, there’s a nice contrast to it!
This is hop chill and describing that “putting the text is unnecessary, your art should convey that, it insults the audience” with that many words does the same thing as you are saying.
and even without that word sculpting would have won.
