as some of you already know, I wanted to create a special Blender Underground wallpaper that will be downloadable for everyone. Actually this thread was supposed to be the first in a new category called "teamworks" or "interactive projects", but because this category probably will never be created, I don't want to wait for it.the Idea:
We (PNG_Pyro said he's with me) want to build a set, where EVERYONE OF YOU
can add one special Item, that can be associated with your account. These Items don't have to be anything big, actually we prefer a small object, that will be put into our set. In most cases, it is the best Idea to send something from your profiles signature.
If you cant send an object of your signature, like me, think of something, that may still be fitting (I'm trying to create a medallion, of a moon someway).
to upload your files, you can use whatever host you like. google for free file host to get a list of them (I use 4shared.com)
your scene don't need lighting, cameras, or any special render setting, they only need the meshes, materials and textures.IMPORTANT:
if you are using image textures, don't forget to pack them into your .blend file
to do so, go to user preferences -> file -> external data -> pack into .blend file.The set:
for our wallpaper we need a scene, that fits to our underground image, but still doesn't look sad or dirty or like we're all mutants.
I have already started a concept and would like to hear some suggestions.
(I'd like to get a better texture of our banner, so I don't have to use this temporary faked
here's the scene with the models we got so far:
Update January 18th 2010
Update January 23rd 2010
Update February 17th 2010
Update March 31st 2010
The Items, that will be laying on the ground will get extra lighting of course and the camera angle will be adjusted depending on your Avatars
I hope to get some Ideas from you, and of course the items.
