FEB ORIGINAL POST: see below:
I'm looking for a cool new design, futuristic, but low poly set of pieces for a board-game. Unique design is more important than huge polys. Make it a hi--tech and sci-fi design. Sample pic is from [login to view URL]
The winner not only wins the money for the contest, but is likely to be the primary choice for continuing the project, if the winner so chooses to be hired at future meetings or negotiations at undetermined prices.
The winner will be chosen by a variety of the following points:
Speaking English is a plus.
Best versatility (*doing land, air, and sea*).
Best 3D printer file compatibility - if you guarantee which 3D printer can be used with your submitted files - this is a huge plus.
Best 3D file format for programming compatibility.
Best design for identification of unit type - easily recognizable according to the name of the unit given.
The winner will have submitted two things. Only two images are required.. several more are optional, but dont submit huge sets of files.
1. A low poly set of 3-5 units in his entry - (in a single image) - for side by side comparison of size and quality.
2. From your 3-5 units submitted, please choose any single unit modeled in high poly - (in a single image) - which may be an early prototype for the outside box "packaging" or advertising etc.
3. Extra images to better advertise yourself.. but the winner may be chosen solely from someone who submitted only two images.. so dont believe that submitting a ton of images is a good idea.
I would "eventually" like to have 25-50 units that could easily be represented in a mobile app on 3D rotating board and have a low memory footprint.
The low poly models DO NOT need texturing.
The high poly image for advertising should be of a marketable and attractive final look.
The models must be of original design, and will be checked across image search engines and other references.
The winner will sign over final copyright to all submitted materials.
Eventually, the game will feature maybe 3-5 units of a single model tank, 3-5 units of another tank type, with 10 or so different aircraft models, and half dozen sea lane ships/subs in motion for 3-4 players, each having a force on the board.
Use any modeling software such as:
3D Model Maker, 3ds Max, Art of Illusion, Autodesk 123D, Blender, Cinema 4D, [login to view URL], Houdini, K-3D, Lightwave, Maya, Modo, Rhinoceros, Sketchup, Vectary
Pick one category from below for the contest (1. land , 2. air, or 3. sea).
Create 3-5 different Armored units for ground combat - tanks, mechs, powered suit infantry, train/monorail your choice.
Create 3-5 different Air units - fighter, transport, bomber, your choice.
Create 3-5 different Sea units - sub, surface skimmer, transport/shipping, destroyer, your choice.
Create one or more units from each category in your own combination.
The winning entrant will provide the complete set of files to the contest holder.
The contest holder will obtain full and complete copyright to the winning submission including all images and resulting files used in the creation of the submission.. Contest holder may use these files in any form, without restriction, and without further compensation or credit to the entrant other than the prize offered in this contest. None of the images or 3d models or files may contain references to the identity of the entrant.
“The best! Everything went smoothly and he went above the minimum requirements showing enthusiasm for the project.”
