Here is a collection of a few of the "failed" renders I've produced over the past few months.

In some cases I've gone on to make a good set from it. For example, the last image became "Orion Investments".

In other cases I used the original idea and ended up starting again from scratch. For instance, for the first image I intended to have her stare down some big monster, which later became the premise for "Hutt Labour Relations".

In the rest I just got frustrated with and ended up abandoning the set. Where you see the black bars cutting off the image is where I stopped it mid render.

I post this compilation not so much for all of you, but more for my own sanity. The month of January has been seen problem after problem arise for both me and my family. The job I was suppose to start last month fell through and I've had to start my job search from scratch. The good news is that now there seems to be many more (and better) opportunities in my field than there were in the fall.

So, I made this compilation to remind myself that it's not about how many times you fall, it's about how many times you get back up again.

[Thanks for tuning in]

And it only goes to show that you can pull something interesting (and unexpected) from past failures!

Best wishes on the job hunt! (And some of your failures look better than some of my, er... "successes".)

There are some excellent concepts in there! Shame they didn't work out. Maybe you might revisit them some time.

I can't believe that any image with gorgeous girls like this could be scrapped. They look awesome collaged like this.

Most of those look far from "failed"!

I think this is a great idea. Newbies like myself especially need reminders that "you can't always get what you want, but if you try real hard, you get what you need".

Nice composition/collage :) Some of them are actually really good, like the first one (top left) and the one before last (bottom right). Interesting idea, I don't think I ever kept one that was not completely rendered lol

I hear your frustration looking for a job just got put in the spot myself. Wish you the best. Remember things always happen for a reason. :}

Good luck in your job search, I'm in the same place and I don't really have a "field". Nice idea. ^_^

Boy do I know the feeling, both in the getting up again and also in the failed renders. I have several that I started and just never went anywhere with. I hope things do turn around for you. I do believe that stick-to-itness does pay off. It is the person who easily gives up and throws in the towel when things don't go they way they plan that never come to realize their dreams.

I think we all should keep record of the failed renders. It is most healing to see yours and I agree with your statement! Good luck with your job hunt!

Failed Render's? They look fantastic to me! Love the college. But always remember where's there's a failed render is something learned to make an even better render.

Thanks for sharing, and I'm glad that even though they didn't work as expected you were still able to rassle something out of them. :)

Ugh, sorry to hear about the job fallthrough, but I think you can take the metaphor of your image to heart- what may seem like a failure at the time may just be another step toward the real goal- and maybe that goal is even greater than the sum of what you put into it.

The final compilation gives me the idea that you could use the best of these in a sci-fi pinup girl calendar.
