Architecture unchained!

Hello FlyingArchitecture fans :)

After a very long break in contests, we are back with the new one. I was working hard to make this one happen, and I am sure you will be as excited about it as I am :) This time we’re going to free our minds, liberate our fantasies, unchain our souls! Fly. Fly away. Live in a flying building. Fly in a living structure. Sink into the creativity and get awarded. Sounds prefect, right?

 

Conditions

The aim of this contest is to showcase what are we – CGI artists & Architects – capable of. Construction rules? Urban rules? Law? Screw it! You are an artist, act like one.

There is only one strict condition that must be kept – As this is Work in progress challenge, every participant must create his own thread in our Forum and post there his/her WIP images, while other participants will make comments and suggestions for possible improvements. Also, WIP images may help judges to add valuable points when deciding about the winning image ;)

Your image can be an interior, exterior or a mix of both.

You are encouraged to post on the Challenge forum as many WIP images as you can. The minimum requirement is to submit an image for each of these parts – Concept Sketch (Reference images), Environment Model, Accessories modeling, Texturing, Lighting and Rendering, Post production and Final Images. While all WIP images must be published during the whole process in our Forum, final images must be submitted in 2 ways: Either published in the same WIP thread as other images from the author, they must be submitted via email ([email protected] with the “CONTEST” as a subject of the email.) as well.
Email must contain:
- Final image in JPG in full quality and resolution
- Subject “CONTEST”
- Information about software you used
- Testimonial for the contest (may be published)

Final submitted images MUST be at least 1920 x 1200 pix, while recommended size is 2500 x 1500 pix, 72 DPI.

Every participant may join the contest with one or more designs / images. It is highly recommended to finish two or more images to the final submission.

It's a little less than 10 years since we started FlyingArchitecture - a website dedicated to 3D assets for Rhinoceros and V-Ray. We started with a single 3D model, extending the number to over 1800 products now. That makes 1 item every second day.

During these intensive days, we covered topics from the scene optimization for heavy geometry loads in Rhinoceros (the one pictured below), via advanced materials creation, V-Ray for Rhino render settings and of course, final postproduction in Photoshop. Not to forget - for the first time during the workshop, we utilized Sculptris tool for the terrain creation.
