Rendered Graphics

"Natural Selection" by Volant - 4th place in the Rendered Graphics compo at TG2010

Create an amazing image by the means of 3d-modelling and rendering.


  1. Hand-in

    Entries in this competition must be delivered through the web-based compo system as a ZIP or RAR archive containing the following items:

    • A rendered version of the picture in size 1280*720 pixels. You're free to include larger versions as well, but we want the picture in this size for the compo showing.
    • A wireframe render of the picture.
    • A render of the picture without textures.

    Please use the following file names in your archive:

    • Compo version: title-yourname.png
    • In-progress pictures: title-yourname-wireframe.png and title-yourname-notexture.png

    Remember that the handin must be a rendered picture, NOT the scene/meshes.

    Allowed formats

    • PNG (.png)
    • JPEG (.jpg/.jpeg)

    We recommend that you deliver your entry as PNG, as it is a lossless format. If you want to deliver your entry as JPEG that's fine, but don't be cheap on the quality setting.

    In-progress pictures must also be in JPEG or PNG format.

  2. Non-rendered elements

    You are allowed to place your signature on the finished picture. This does not have be rendered, and can be composited into the picture using a graphics program of your choice. Apart from that, there should not be any scanned or pixeled elements in the picture, with exception for textures only.

    • You are allowed to render your scene in layers and compose these in another tool. However, all layers must be rendered.
    • You are allowed to do cropping and resizing of layers.
    • You are allowed to do minor color adjustments to your layers.

  3. Originality

    • Only objects made by the artist may be used.
    • Meshes/scene should be available at request (for the jury).
    • You are not allowed to use elements for textures that you have not made (or photographed) yourself.

    Specifically, we do not allow images competing in the Freestyle Graphics competition to enter this competition.

  4. Voting

    A maximum of 25 entries will be shown in this compo. The winner will be chosen from a combination from popular vote and jury vote.

  5. General rules

    The general rules for the Gathering creative competitions apply to this compo.
