CG Cookie Community Halloween Challenge
The Challenge: Model a SCREAM in Blender
(A rendered STILL image)
We've all heard the classic Halloween screams and maybe even watched a few films named Scream. But we're artists, Blender artists who tend to go our own way, take on new challenges, and bend the spoon.
In this challenge, which is indeed a challenge we're asking you to create a 3D STILL IMAGE that embodies the Scream. Sound hard, you bet it is.
I'd encourage you to NOT think literally, and please-please-please avoid any scream mask models. 😱 Instead I challenge you to think how you'd artistically represent the idea of a scream, the feeling, or sound of a scream in a static 3D medium. 🤔
Some ideas could be getting ketchup on your new hoodie, a zombie in your house, a monster under your bed, or Being stuck on a spaceship with spiky self-aware balls.
- What - Create a 3D rendered image that embodies a scream
- When - October 1st 2021 - October 31st 2021
- Why - Challenge yourself, have a bit of fun, and think outside the box or was it, "What's inside the BOX!?!?"
- Use Blender! 😎
- All models are your own creation - No 3rd party models
- Submit your result to the CG Cookie Gallery by October 31st 2021 23:59 US CST
You are encouraged to create a WIP thread in the community forum for review with the title Halloween Challenge 2021 WIP - [Name].
Your WIP thread should consist of progressive images with a short explanation of the process at each stage.
When you post your result in the Gallery, add a link to your WIP in the description so the judges can easily find it.
Why should you do this challenge?
Getting better at anything is a result of practice, practice and practice. Challenges are a way for you to practice what you've learned within a set list of constraints. Much like a freelance gig or task asked of you at a studio job.
So if you're into being obsessed with improvement, challenge against yourself to see what you can come up with!
