Amazing Creations Digital Art Contest
The CGSociety and NVIDIA are sponsoring an Amazing Creations digital art contest. The contest challenges digital artists to “create artistically and technically excellent images of things that are impossible in the real world… Specifically we want to see exciting new images, that are clearly a product of the digital world. However, we don't just want technically excellent renders that are lacking in artistic beauty. The whole point is to create images that are clearly creations of the digital world but retain the artistic beauty and composition of a traditional painting.” Prizes for the contest total over $21,000.
It wasn't until today that I actually submitted my entry for the contest. Unfortunately contest rules do not allow me to publish that image here at this time. I will add it at a later date. You can see my entry Inside A Transdimensional Timeship in the contest forum. This image was inspired by the tessellated works of M.C. Escher. To create this image I used a combination of Bryce and Photoshop. I don't use Bryce much anymore and am currently focusing on improving my skills with Lightwave. However for this project I choose to go with Bryce based on my superior familiarity with that package.
The submission period for the contest ends on January 7 2008. You can see the art that has been submitted to the contest at the NVArt CGSociety forum thread.
