Intro :  

Hello everyone. Some of you may know me as the guy who helps set up the polls for chohole. I am sure by now, you have all heard the unfortunate news. So to pick up the mantle in our stead, I will be taking over the challenges in the place of our beloved moderator. I am not as witty or as clever as she is, but I will try to make these challenges, fun, creative, and a true test of your abilities. For this challenge, I thought it would be best to look ahead. Seeing as we are still in the middle of a pandemic and the world is under duress, I thought something a bit open ended would be a nice change of pace

Bryce Contest #48 
                                              Theme:  NEW JOURNEY 

                                                                                                     

 


                                                               Description: 

What if we imagined a place, a distant shore far beyond the horizon. To go on a journey into the great beyond, and see wonders the eyes can only fathom. Who knows what lies beyond those stars, the darkest crevices of the ocean, and the great plains ahead!. 

I want you to imagine it, an adventure unseen, unheard of. You tell your tale as you embark into those misty foggy lands, And for your return, they tell tales of your heroic Journey!  

This is a contest about THRILLS, EXCITEMENT, AND A STORY YOU GET TO SHARE! 

It can be about that time,
- you ventured on a new continent,

- found a new planet,

- starting new job,

- or even about how you made good use of your vacation to create your own time machine, go back and capture your own pet dinosaur, who you named Carl.Jr, and  triggering a timeline apocalypse due to your machine malfunctioning. Accidentally bringing all 3million of them back into the modern day. Which you now have to fight off with your giant rockerlauncher ripped vest, warpaint, and bandana that carl found off some no name movie star ​ .  . .
 

Wether your a pirate, a rock star, or even an accountant The choice is yours with this one! So think of anything that gives you a renewal and fresh look on life.   As chohole always says.

 

 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.
  • 
    You may include dinosaurs

  • Please submit your works before the deadline

 

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.

Challenge ends September 30th 2021:- Midnight DAZ 3D time

DAZ 3D Sponsorship, in the form of Store credit

Ist place $30     2nd place $20     3rd place $15

In addition DAZ 3D Store Credit will be given to the people whose renders are selected as the Honorable mentions,
$10 for each of 3 honorable mentions

We will also be offering a special prize for the render judged the best from a Bryce New User. DAZ 3D will add $10.

Judged by a poll which will be set up at closure of the challenge.

By entering this contest, you agree to allow DAZ3D to use any artwork you submit in any promotional materials they may choose

    Ok, I spent way longer on this than I would like to admit. Still, if anyone has any issues, or advice they wish to share with me, please let me know. I hope this theme is to everyones liking. My next theme idea might be something along the lines of ( Element X ) or something like that

    Thanks for continuing the Challenge. Nice theme

    Pam has a list of themes maybe these will help you and normally she will put up the new challenge on the 1st of the month. Maybe that time is not suitable for you. When I was working, in the good old days, that was the busiest time of the month.

    Thanks ones again for keeping the challenges alive and Pam's Memories.

    Thank you, I was looking for that.  I think we should go and finish that list first, 

    And if the first of the month works best for everyone else, I do not mind.

    I haven't witnessed all challenges as i joined Bryce just 2-3 years ago. But it seemed to be that time of new theme being announced is pretty flexible and not tied to certain date.  But usually time given for participants to make entries was 45 days (1,5 months?) + optional 1-3 days if someone can't finish in time  and it's decided to wait + then voting stuff as you know.

     

    Regardless... Apoc, thank you for "taking up the torch". Keeping alive Chohole's tradition and memories.

    Apoc - Akmerlow is correct the challenge runs for 45 days + a few days if someone needs time. In the beginning Pam will put up a new challenge on the 16th and let it run till the end of the next month, recently she started putting them up on the 1st. You chose the date and time which is most suitable for you, these are just suggestions.

    We appreciate you taking over the challenges, first helping Pam with the voting and now hosting them, without your help, personally I think that the challenges would have ended long ago.

    Thanks once again we really appreciate it.

    What a beautiful theme with many possibilities to bring it into the picture.
    Thank you Apoc for keeping this contest alive.

    Apoc - thank you so much to keep up these challenges and you came up with a fascinating theme.

    Thank you everyone for the support. heart

    @akmerlow + @mermaid010 understood. 
    Seeing as how I messed up on the hosting date, 45 days from now should be sept 15. But considering how confusing it would be for people to remember a new date every time. I am thinking, that just having it conclude at the end of the second next month would be a simpler idea

     

    Edit: so I have changed it to end on the 30th, more time is always best right. And if I am on top of things, I can set up the poll on the 1st of next month, let it run for 2weeks, then start the contest by the 15th and continue the cycle over again

    Spuddy, both versions are great. I think I prefer the first at the moment. But if you could have more contrast in the second one, I might prefer that one.
