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!

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

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

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...

ice_magistrate ( posted at 9:45PM Tue, 06 October 2009

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.

Nitpick ( posted at 9:58PM Sat, 10 October 2009

gets ready for the flood of last minute entries =oP

sparrownightmare ( posted at 12:44PM Sun, 11 October 2009

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.
