Bar scene
By Moses Holmström

Here's how it goes:

You are welcome to participate, regardless of your skill level.

To post your work do the following:

1. Create an unique scene in under one hour, starting from scratch. You must hit the render button before the hour is due, but the render can take as long as it needs to...

1b "Define scratch?" I mean start from nothing. Nada. No pre made objects, surfaces, maps, motions, lighting schemes... nothing!

2. You can use whatever plugins you have, other software like a paint application, even photos you scan for textures.

But you must do all that within the time frame too (So, you seem to need a polaroid and a scanner then?)

3. Avoid retouching - if you post process your work, also provide the original LW output!

4. As i don't have a great amount of space here, the size is restricted to 500X500 pixels max. Compress as much as you dare ;-)

5. There are no rules whatsoever when it comes to the content of your work. (Ok, if it's too XXX i maybe won't post it...)

6. When you are done E-mail your work to me


and include a description of the methods you used to cut down the time. That way this will also serve as a tip list!

Also include whatever comments you may want others to see...

And don't forget your contact information!

7. I trust you. Don't cheat! It would spoil the fun! If you exceed the deadline, be fair and mention it.

8. As of now there's no intention to turn this in to a contest, but rather a place to see various approaches to quick and dirty 3D.

Allow me some time (Usually 1-2 days) to get your work on the page... I'm mostly on a deadline too...
