The paper texture need some work, kind of looks like fibreboard, but overall an excellent piece. W'll see if the use of 3d gives you an advantage or disqualifies you
I probably gave it a little bit too much bump, you're right...thinking of it might be caused by the fact, that the scene initially was lit relatively smooth and the "sharp" sun was added last, so yea ... but thank you for your feedback :)
Ps.: And apperantly it didn't give me any advantage or disqualification, because my entry is in the gallery (https://youtu.be/PAFDpknEgDU?t=11m), but wasn't mentioned in the showcase, so it seems not to make a difference.
And i mean why shouldt it make one? In the end, I probably just need a little bit less less fine motor skills and a little bit more technical skills. Yes, some things like photorealism are probably easyer done in 3D and require a higher skill level, if done in 2D, but: there are a lot of things, that are waay easyer in 2D, as well and realism isn't a criteria in Jazzas judgement,.
In terms of originality, ambition and execution, it is defenetely comparable to any other entry.
(I might even have a slight disatvantage, because Jazza has less experience with 3D and is therefore probably biased, since it is harder for him to judge the execution...but in the end it does not really matter that much, because competitions are not about winning, they are about having fun ... aaand about having a deadline so you work more effective) :D
Hey! Finally got the time to look at yours!
And I really have to say, it's amazing. It's definetly one of my few favourites.
I saw it and thought: "Well yea okay it looks great and all but where's the digital part?"
...and then I read it :')
As someone who just started 3D modeling this is incredible. (omg just spotted the lil Jazza)
I really think that it fit's the topic too! It actually wouldn't surprise me if you would be one of the top artists!
The picture itself works very well. There's much to see but not too much to kill the art. I really like how you set up the scene with the bigger objects creating that round shape and pens and colors breaking it up a bit. The use of light is very well chosen too. I think it's really well done and hope you at least get into the Showcase video!
