                                      Theme for this challenge
                                               Looking Ahead


                                                                                                  


            OK   it's the first of January in a brand new year,  so let's try looking ahead. 

                                          How do you interpret that phrase? 

                           There are any numbers of meanings you could try.

 

                        

 


                             Lets see how many different variations we can get                                

                                              


                         Your imagination is the only limit


 

 

This thread is the WIP thread, so you can post here to show us how things are coming along before the render is transferred to the actual Contest thread for judging. You don't have to do that.we collect up all the finished ones and make the thread, with each render given a number and title, but no artist name shown, so it's a blind judging thread for the judging panel.

 

Rules

  •  
    All renders must be new renders.
  •  
    You can enter up to 3 renders.
  •  
    You must abide by the DAZ 3D forum TOS
  •  
    Imported content is allowed, but the render must be obviously a Bryce render.
  •  
    Post Work permitted, but please keep it to a minimum.
  •  
    Rules may be changed for subsequent Challenges, depending on the theme and the person who has selected it.
  •  

Please don't post your entry renders anywhere else until after the Challenge is judged, as judging is done in a blind judging thread, so the Judges don't know who has done which image.

    S Ray - excellent idea, thanks for sharing. I did such but only a few and to make an inverse gradient. It never occurred to me to do it in this elaborate way. Thanks again.

    Entry #1   Looking A Head

    I used a brick material on the ground to represent our civilization of buildings, parking lots, and institutions.  The big head is looking behind and represents most people.  As the people turn toward the future (on the left) there are less and less people looking forward, thus the figure gets smaller.  I think most of us see the past as our future.  This manifests itself in people resisting change and wanting things to stay as they were (the past).

    Then again, I could change up the direction of the future and make it on the right.  After 2020 most people are looking for a new 2021.  You decide.

    Spuddy, another beautiful render.  What makes this for me is the hiker.  He's perfect in the scene.

  • adbcadbc Posts: 1,898

    spuddy : cool idea, beautiful image.

  • HansmarHansmar Posts: 2,221

    S Ray: great colouring work!

    NGartplay: highly original take on the theme.

    Spuddy: lovely render, specifically the light and sky are very good.

  • ImMelanieLImMelanieL Posts: 21

    S Ray - "Light, Lace & Flowers" is stunning! I love the lighting.

    NGartplay - "Looking A Head" is a great idea, I think the future is to the right though...

    spuddy - "To New Horizons" is lovely, I like the bleak winter landscape and the hiker makes it a really nice compostition.

  • S RayS Ray Posts: 301

    Ngartplay:  My first interpretation was a young boy looking behind & as he grew older he looks ahead.  But after reading your comment I totally get it & my interpretation is the opposite of most people's reality . Most start out in life looking ahead and as they grow older they end up looking behind. Great idea. I came here today because I've been stuck on what to do next. Your render has inspired me with a new idea. Thanks.

    My first entry : "Looking ahead" I made a pencil sketch of it, used the head of Genesis.
