I'm afraid I might not be able to finish this. I have to go to class and I might not have enough time when I return.

To at least show what I've got already, here's a wip. All that's missing are the character's really, which I've just boiled down to two.

Now that I look at it though I think it's really stretching it...

EDIT: Managed to finish it (at the expense of my painting XD)

The image needed a tad bit of photoshop color correction to fix up some lighting issue I couldn't handle within Anim8or due to using flat surfaces for leaves. You can't get a good highlight easily on the upper part of the group of leaves. (HoF contact ps.jpg)

But if photomanipulation isn't allowed on the entries then I attached an unedited one just in case. (HoF contact.jpg)

EDIT 2: Crud I rendered the wrong size. I wondered why it was so small. XD

Additional notes: Render time approx: 20 mins

This has a ton of flat surfaces for particles whatnot. I lost count how many copy pastes I did to get a clutter. And due to lack of time I couldn't fill the area with bodies. Ah well.

I found a few faults already while I stare at my screen during render. Lighting is something I should really get practicing with... well basically that here and there and I over darkened some textures for fear the characters won't stand out.

Any feedback is appreciated :D

Final Ver: HoF contact ps

Hm, you certainly stretched the boundaries, Janro, but I guess it's close enough...you did preserve the corners afterall :P Nice scene though, I think if you had more warriors in there to fill the scene, it'd have looked even better! As for the lighting, certainly has a lot of saturation. But it'd also have been hard to make the darks subtle enough to work against a tropic sunny day as well. Overall for the time you put in it, you've done really well.

Ok, the topic is now (finally) open for voting! I put the images together in the first post so that you don't have to rummage through the entire topic, so feel free to vote on your favorites! I wish Indian8or didn't drop out though, but I think there's enough entries there to make a good poster or T-shirt or something ;)

I liked all the entries. I always enjoy seeing every entrant's ideas and efforts. Cast my vote and going to hide in the event someone throws something at me ;-)

Yibbeedee Doodah some of those works are sparkling!

Thanks for hosting the challenge Raxx - and carrying it through to the end.
I know why you don't put your own work in. You just don't want to show us up eh :)

Cheers from this part of Oz!

Congrats goes to everyone who participated in this challenge. It was a long one ;) As for the prize winners, give me a few days and I'll set up your options based on if the artists here give me permission to plaster their work on something tangible :P

Thanks all & congrats to everybody who managed to submit something.  Initially, when the challenge was posted, I thought the hallway concept was very limited and had little scope for different ideas, but I was certainly proven wrong by the final entries which were amazingly varied in concept.  Anim8or's development may have stagnated a bit but in the hands of imaginative folk it can still amaze.  It is also great to see the WIP work of some who didn't finish, due mainly to not being afraid to tackle far more complex ideas than I was game to!

Thanks to Raxx for your continued enthusiasm, and I am more than happy for my work to be plastered alongside that of these talented artists, much appreciated.

Congrats guys. This was certainly a fascinating challenge to do. I enjoyed and learned quite a lot with working with 'particles'. Shadows don't work too well on them in Anim8or. :D

Sure I don't mind you plastering it on something tangible Raxx :P
