Very COOOOOOOOOOOOOl , let get creepy *LOL* !
DON'T GO IN THERE! - I love the theme for this year. Last year I remember a vote for the theme, I didn't notice a vote for this year - but - I'm thrilled with the theme.
WAKE THE DEAD - four contests ago was a super theme.
DINNER WITH THE DEAD - helped me find the direction where my BONDAGE story was going.
CARNIVAL OF EVIL.... fun contest, but felt limited in the theme
DON'T GO IN THERE - No limits, I see a lot of GREAT ideas going in all kinds of directions.
I look forward to seeing all the cool art that will come out of this years contest...
GREAT JOB IN SELECTING THE THEME!
Can't wait for this one. XD
YEA I see this as a much better more direct idea much easyer to work with, I'm gona try to get something done for this one, even with my old cranky POS computer, I may be able to make it, not that I think I'll win but it will be fun!
Cool. Cool. Cool. What a Theme!
My favorite contest is here! Yeah!
Oh man, I can't enter but good luck to everyone. I'm sure there will be some awesome pieces. :-)
Drags leg and scuffs across the room hunchback style to say Im in.Ha ha ha harrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhh burp fart oooops scuse me ...
Yup, I remember the request for Theme titles.
Question: By word count, do you mean the words only or characters with spaces count?
Are they going to let you compete this year Cal? AWESOME!! Can't wait to see your entry, though I'm hoping to give you some competition this year! Cheers! :D
ok just want to make this clear, can we enter once for 3D and once for animation? or is it one entry that is either 3d still image or an animated entry?
same question for the 2D/Photography one
Whao my first contest!
Are Daz Studio or Poser images considered 2D or 3D?
Yes, my favorite time of year, and my favorite image contest! Didn't have tim to get one in last year - I'll have one in THIS year! Awesome theme!
why can't some people enter?
A shot in the dark if i can win, but it's a cool challange and worth the try, thanks rendo staff, great job.
Very nice theme!
So many creepy ideas crawling around in my twisted little mind... Great theme!
Hmm, I've got a week-and-a-half to come up with something... gawd I love Halloween!!
*cranks open DAZ and Carrara*
*scratches her head* and says ... why not. Don't tell me not to go in there! lol how fun! I'm in. :-)
Hey there... is that Filthy the Clown in the thumbnail? Just wondering since we're actually in the middle of a lot of Cirque Du Macabre stuff right now... just saw it and thought.. hmm... is that on of them? Anyway... -Les
The thumbnail and image was last years winner in the 3D/Animation Halloween Contest, see full image at the link below
Not that one... this one:
I really wish they would stop imposing this 800x800 limit, and at 72dpi no less. No one I know that does 3D work uses that resolution. It just makes it nearly impossible to put much detail into the images, and really really limits what you can do. It's kind of a letdown to see that they still have it this year...
that's part of the contest too..i think it helps the theem by putting it in a small, confined space to work with...kinda feeling cramped, claustrophobic? and the image people sees...don't go in there.
so it's either stuck on a cramp space or go in there...hEh
i like it.
*gets ready for the flood of last minute entries* =oP
Well. This years entries look pretty good. I just put mine in so I will see how it goes this year. Most of the entries don't seem to match the theme for this year though. Either that, or I am missing something.
There are so many good 3d artists out there im almost intimidated to enter the comp considering im a novice modeler.
Got my entry in just in time thank you LOL
New to this so hope I entered all the info correctly :)
I tried to post my pic entry into 3d/animation category but I got message "You must attach a file to this contest." What file? I'm not uploading an animation. Thanks in advance for help! :)
For those having trouble with the area that says 'file', and you are not uploading an animation, you can just upload your main image there as well.
So if I understand correctly, in the 3D/Animation category, you can enter either a Render from a 3D app, or a 60 second Animation made with a 3D app, but not both. Correct?
I ask as I am not sure if there is an image category and an animation category.
Added my entry but this " Missing File " when I added my submission think messed me up... now says I have to wait on approval.. How long that take.?
Thats correct ucraphere..either an image or an animation but not both. :)
tigarle, there are no set times on approvals, if there is an issue with your entry a contest manager will notify you.
I keep trying to vote but when I click on 'contest page' I just get a Terragen contest that's in voting - no Halloween contest. Anyone else have this problem or know where I'm going wrong?
Fraxa, give them time. I'll bet they have a ton of last minute entries to approve before they can open the voting
Same here Fraxa. I'll try tomorrow.
There's too many to choose from! We need a primary vote!
Anyone else still having issues with voting.?
Issues with voting? Yeah - I gotta pick ONE! I'd like to vote for couple of them, at least a 1st, 2nd, 3rd kinda thing, but oh well...
No problem here, other than deciding what to give my vote to. Too bad we can't vote more than once; saw a lot of good stuff deserving of a vote.
good luck to all, some great art again this year.
big thanks to the rendo staff for all there work in having such a fun contest.
I agree, there were some realy good entries, maybe next year we could for more than just one entry, in the meantime good luck to all the entrants.
Guess new members do not get to vote..some trial period it seems =(
So many good entrys...
If anyone is having problems being able to vote just contact one of the contest managers and they will correct the problem. I am a new member and was unable to vote at first, but the managers took care of it for me promptly after I made them aware of the issue.
I couldn't enter this year. Some really great work has been submitted!! Best of luck to you all!
I can't believe we're already at that stage of the contest where we're waiting for the votes... and Halloween is still over a week away... I would like to make a suggestion that the winner of the contest makes the name for next year, or maybe added to a list of names for next years contest. I would also like to suggest that the name of the contest should be told ASAP... preferably before the end of this year. I don't know how many animators we have on this site, but I love animation and would love the animators to be able to work on the contest all year = imagine all that GREAT ANIMATION we would see... AND with that in mind, I think the ANIMATORS deserve their own catagory. I'm not an animator, but I'd love to see what our great artists on this site would come up with if they had a longer time to create. I for one would suggest the name "CHILL OUT" for next season... I love the title for this year, but right when I read it, I thought of Jim Carey saying: "Don't go in there" - I was not suprised to see how many bathroom scenes popped up in the entrees. I enjoy this contest every year, but with more than a week before Halloween left, I feel like Halloween is over... I'd also like to suggest running the contest until the 26th, then, we'd be inside that last week before Halloween and still feel the spirit....5 days of voting should be pleanty to find the winners.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE
