Make it live! Render Challenge

By 06/11/2010Actualités, Blog, Concours


For this first contest, I invite you to render « La Gare des chemins de fer de Provence de la Ville de Nice ». The model will be provided to you and you have to create and submit at least one image. You are free to do what you want, you can edit/move/delete some parts of the train station… Just have fun!

About « Make it Live! »

The challenge concept is the result of my work. A few monthsago, I’ve worked on the rendering of a reel architecture contest, but I haven’t done the final images, just the model. I’ve never had time do do something with it, so I hope that you will make it live!
