LTFC - October 2017 - Beauty Edition

Take part in the discussion --> here
Only submissions in this thread, please.


Welcome to the 18th edition of the Limit Theory Fan Contest! This month will be about "Beauty". It doesn't necessarily have to focus completely on beauty, but it must openly feature the topic in some form. Be a little creative, and I'm sure you can come up with something awesome. :) Everyone can make as many admissions as they like, but only one can be the "official" admission by which you are judged.

This contest will have 3 prizes for the top three submissions, and each entrant can only win one prize. If there are less than six entrants, only two prizes will be given out. If there are less than four entrants, only one prize will be awarded. If there are less than two entrants, no prizes will be given. Selected prizes will be taken from the pool, and winners can choose between them. First place gets first pick.

The objective: Create art about Limit Theory.
This could be in written form as a story, lore, or a detailed idea for a mod. It could be visual like a gif, photoshop or video. Or even audio - anyone up for a bit of stand-up about Limit Theory? These are just a few ideas off the top of my head, but I'm sure you guys can think of a lot more. It is fine to use other games' assets in your submissions, as long as your work is your own.
Rule of thumb: "Does it spotlight Limit Theory?"

Prize pool:
  • Hitman: Absolution (courtesy of Naed)
  • GOTY Arkham Asylum (courtesy of Skyfligher)
  • Stanley Parable (courtesy of Dinosawer)
  • $30 voucher
I'm going to be using a new system from now on. There are four prizes. If fewer people submit entries, fewer prizes will be given, same as before, BUT all winners may choose one prize from the full pool above. It's simpler and easier to keep track of.

The rules:
  • The artwork needs to be about Limit Theory per the objective.
  • Everybody is free to enter but can only submit one entry to the contest. You are free to change or replace your submission for as long as the contest is open.
  • If you have submitted more than one work, you need to be very clear about which one you're entering. If there is any doubt, the latest entry in the forum thread will be judged.
  • You cannot submit something you've already submitted to a previous LTFC. Submitting things you plan to (or have) submitted to other non-LT contests is discouraged.
  • All contest submissions have to be made as a reply to this thread.
  • Submitting a prize does not exclude you from having a submission scored.
  • Judges are not barred from making a submission themselves, but their submissions can't earn prizes. If they would like their submissions to earn prizes, they cannot act as a judge for that month.
  • The contest will be open to new submissions until Sunday, November 5th, 23:59 GMT.
  • Discussion about this contest or submissions can happen here.
  • Any prizes are yours to do whatever you want with them. You can even give the prize to someone else if you'd like, and they don't have to be from this forum.
  • If last month's first-place winner gets first place in this contest as well, they must wait to choose their prize until after the second place winner of this month chooses.
Note: if you're using another site to host content, make sure the title and comment displays that it's part of a contest submission. This is to avoid future Googlers from becoming confused when looking for official content.

Our panel of three judges will evaluate the submissions based on the following criteria:
  • Originality: 30%
  • Aesthetic: 25%
  • Details: 10%
  • X factor: 20%
  • Realism according to the LT universe: 15%
And most importantly: Have fun! :thumbup:

Re: LTFC - October 2017 - Beauty Edition

Not the easiest topic.

So using some of my current "research" on procedural displacements and texturing, here is a small video, featuring also some original music from yours truly. With a topic like "beauty", it had to be classical music, of course.
Without further ado, here is the youtube link.
I think embedding does not work on the forum, right? I stand corrected, but you can have more pixel following the link above...

Here are some high resolution shots to show the details:
Spoiler:      SHOW
As you can see at the end of the movie, the model is just 3 concentric spheres; all the details and everything is from the function editor. The perfect solution for the lazy 3D artist :lol: .

[edit]I wanted to use the final chords from Madar from Jan Garbarek; interestingly, youtube has recognised them and blocked the movie. So I replaced the whole generic with a not 100% thought out and optimised recording which is certainly not protected by author rights as it is a simple improvisation :-). Interesting feature of Youtube, but very surprising - there are whole movies, musicals and CDs there...[/edit]
