Not only are there addons towin, but you could be featured as the official splashscreen of Bforartists 3.6.0, the next release of a GUi focused Blender fork. This opensource and free software gets up to 15,000 downloads per month!
All entries must be the original work of the participant. CC0 third-party material is permitted. Plagiarism, use of copyrighted material, or submissions containing third-party assets without proper credit will result in disqualification.
At the end of the day, the final image file must be original and GPL compatible.
Note: your image could be a previous image made at another period of time, no worries!
All submission must be a still image rendered at a 16:9 format landscape orientation, at 1920px by 1080px minimum in a *.jpg or *.png file format. You can render at higher dimensions is you'd like to, and it is encouraged.
Along with the final submission, participants are recommended to also post development in the Discord channel🔧-work-in-progress to show participation. A single wireframe or screenshot could do!
All 3D work must be done in Blender and/or the fork Bforartists. If you render in Bforartists, you get a 10% bonus for the qualification.
Participants are allowed use other software for texturing, sculpting, and other supporting tasks, but the final render must be created in Bforartists/Blender.
Participants are recommended to pay close attention to lighting and composition to create a visually impressive and immersive image that draws the viewer in.
Participants do not need to share the source file of the render, but the final image file must be licensed CC0 to be able to participate.
The final image will be used in an opensource GNU licensed software repository and distributed freely with the software.
Participants should aspire to push their skills! Be it with technique, style or detail - striving for quality, we want to show the best of the best.
This is your time to shine, if you couldn't make it as a Blender Splashscreen, you could make it here.
I will be seeking out punchy and creative pieces that has fresh and innovative flair. This includes detail, texture, balance, contrast, story and composition.
Appreciating the beauty and harmony of the visual elements and the overall impression of the work. This could include colour, design and intention.
I will be evaluating the level of mastery and proficiency in using the tools and techniques of the chosen medium.
Brownie points if you use Bforartists in your final render!
