November is Thanksgiving month so we want to feature and thank three special vendors who are generous and awesomely supportive – Fred Winkler Art, Swam, and Sixus1. We had a lot of fun going through all the contest entries, so thank you all for participating and hope you will join us in our December contest!
Meanwhile, we have started a Patreon page, and we already have 8 patrons! YAY! Our very first patron is Shozai who has a great love of animals and a great generosity of spirit. Therefore, in honor of her, we will add two special vendors to this month’s list – Alessandro_AM and 3D Universe.
Patrons (depending on tier) also get special tutorial resources including my Iray light rig, render settings, scene files, and PSD files. We are also working on some patron exclusive tutorials so there will be lots coming up. We hope you will help support our sites and signup to be a patron. It will help us host our articles and tutorials, as well as energize us to create new stuff. Thank you very much! 😀
November 2015 Contest Vendors
1st Place – Market Day
Artist – Shozai
Love this piece! So creative, heart-warming, wonderfully posed, and awesome! Below is another superb piece by Shozai that just gives me super warm fuzzies. The judges were pretty much split between these two so I decided to post them both. Definitely also check out Shozai’s other animal images in the November contest – they are magic!!
2nd Place – Rust World:Résilience
Artist – LaMuserie
What a brilliant composition! Great looking machines, materials, terrain, and love details like the reflections on the muddy water. The figure and Sixus1’s Survivor outfit goes perfectly with the scene, the posing is WOW, and the dogs make it excellent++.
If I saw this image on a book cover, I would buy the book!
3rd Place – Winter Cabin
Artist – ThatGuy
Excellent composition and oil-painting style. Love all the details like the icicles on the cabin, look-out circle on the window, the nutcracker soldiers guarding the door, and everything else. This would make a wonderful Christmas card as well as a superb promo image for AM’s Log Cabin.
Majestic image of AM’s Wolf 2.0. The hair details, expression, light, and backdrop all work together to create the perfect mood of quiet dignity.
Gorgeous colors, pose, outfit, and effects. Also great use of Laguna-Naoko Hair to accentuate the movement and direction of the effects.
Super wow! Great character from Fred Winkler Art, awesome armor from Luthbel, wonderful colors, materials, light, and don’t forget the superb little dragon on his shoulder. Love it, love it, love it!! 😀
