The Challenge is about to start in a day! I’ve added the information pages to the blog under the new Challenges option in the navigation above. You can also visit the forum and register right now. The house model for the Challenge will be posted later on, so please take this time to review all the information and ask me anything you like by commenting below… all the information gathered here will be edited and turned into a FAQ that I’ll post in the Challenge page and forum so that all participants can benefit from this.

Good Luck and Have Lots of Fun!

Hi,

Just out of curiosity, how did you make the louvers and their wiring? It would be nice if you could provide a tutorial on it of some sort.

Thank you!

It looks like a nice challenge. Will keep eye on it and maybe I will try my luck ;)
Good thing is that twitter is not necessary anymore - I deleted my account few days ago.

Can I hide the parts of the model which I do not like? (I mean - wall around the site)

It seems we miss out on good talent from entering the Challenge due to the Twitter rule. Though I still believe Twitter is great and safe and I encourage you all to sign in to it - I'm removing it from being a rule in this Challenge.

So, no more excuses mates! You have to join in now and show what you can do...

This challenge looks nice but I really don't know why following you on Twitter is a must.

The model is on-line! check out the Challenge page or the forum to get it.

left out one small issue - what time zone this competition is based on?

is it a must to have concept sketch?

usually I work directly inside 3dsmax, adjusting whichever things that I'm not comfortable with instead of draw an initial concept sketch before I start since I don't have such experience at all.

and also do we need to create our own environment and textures? or can we use models and texture from libraries?

hope to clear these newbie questions out, this is my 1st time trying to enter a challenge.

cheers

So far everything seems to be clear to me.

Waiting for model, or at least some plans to get the general idea what we'll be working on.

Hi Adam, Would love to have you join in! You should check the house model rules over at the forum for a complete list... but you can remove the perimeter wall - you can actually build your on site.

This challenge is a first for me, and other then the core Archviz I also experiment with Web Development too - Twitter is an important player and I want to integrate it, explore it's usage.

I think it is really a small step to take giving the big picture.

You don't have to draw an actual Sketch. I use this word to describe an initial concept so you can also have a 3d sketch depicting how the environment and house play together.

You can create your own environment and textures or use ready made ones as long as you use them in your own style and not just copy paste something in looking the same as it did before - you need to create an overall original image.
