Blending Life 2: Starting 25 January 2010
We are very excited to announce CG Cookie as a sponsor for the BLENDING LIFE 2 contest.
Before the new year, we were approached by Len to see if we would be interested in helping out with Blending Life 2. I was surprised to get the knock on the door, but was very happy to work with Len and for CG Cookie to become a sponsor. I have offered up some neat prizes and this should be a great contest and see how far you guys can push blender to create some cg heads that rock the eye candy out of artists around the globe!
If you have a moment check out some of the detail below and help get this contest off to a huge start for every one involved.
What is Blending Life?
BLENDING LIFE is a 3D computer graphics contest, by using the software Blender. Blender is the free open source 3D content creation suite, available for all major operating systems under the GNU General Public License.

The aim of this stills contest is to create a 3d model of a realistic looking human (portrait only) that looks like a real, live and breathing human being. The more lifelike, the better. Give it personality. Give it expression, whether it is subtle or more expressive is your choice. Think crazy detail in every aspect of what makes a person look real, especially skin texturing, eye texturing, lighting and shading. Give it that twinkle in the eye that says: “I’m alive!”
Blending Life 1 showed us that Blender is on a solid path and competing very well with the broader CG world when it comes to creating realistic looking 3d human models. This time we’re going to up the stakes a notch and prove our worth even more. Our community has the talent, and we have the tool. Are you ready for Blending Life 2?
