I’m 3D-artis and I want create 3D concept of weapon in Blender, then render image to 2D, and use a PS to match a render picture to template sheet. Is this correct or maybe is too realistic? At last finall result is still a 2D.
No problem with that as long as you submit a digital 2D image in the end. The technique you use to render that is up to you.
I read a few other rule sets of contests from other companies where this sentence appears and it always refers to registration processes for sweepstakes and things like that, to void entries by bots.
That’s strange. The rules seem to state that the weapons should be completely different. "Any entry submitted by a Contestant must be substantially different (as determined by Sponsors) than any other entry submitted by same Contestant. " Did I misunderstand the quote?
Weapons using a same theme are still different weapons. This line just means that you can’t submit several times the same entry and expect it to be treated as individual entries. In any case, belonging to the sponsors’ team, I can say that weapons belonging to a same theme are okay for us.
I am now also interested in what happens if a person submits 3 entries and becomes a finalist. Does only one entry get chosen for the finals or all 3?
We don’t pick 20 finalists, as in entities. We pick 20 finalists, as in 20 entries.
:( I have a weapon I want to submit, but my zip program doesn’t work. Can I have someone submit it for me?
You should not submit a zip. Zips are considered void by default. Your file should be .JPG or .PNG or .PSD and be light enough to fit the requirements.
I drew by myself weapons in 2D
Then it’s okay. You’re not using a bot or a script to cheat.
So my question is, can I cancel out the newer entry, by adding another “erratum” to the end of the newest (third) file name, essentially making it ‘…erratumerratum’, or should I just give up already? xD
Just write “erratum2”
Still unsure about the limits to particle effects. My design has an on-off aspect, where it is a Bow handle, but when equipped particles fan out to complete the design. Is that considered legendary status particles? I’m worried my submission will be disqualified.
That seems ok, particules wise.
If you download the zip, there is a template with the dwayna weapon concepts and the blue lines are pretty general.
Again, blue lines are a guideline you can take some liberties with.
