    TERRAINING MINI CONTEST RELOAD #1 [CLOSED]


    FINAL ENTRIES

    All final entries arranged by score, first place first and so on.




    Alright let's start simple. This is an old theme that was up for debate but never visited in the contest runs.


    Participants are to create a scene laden in thick or heavy mist, fog, dust or smoke.

    And because the trick here is making the most out of doodads in a low visibility scene, I'll throw in the addendum that no more than a total of 20 doodads (excluding lighting and fog) should be visible in the final scene.


    RULES
    • Submissions must follow the contest theme and the rules laid out here.
    • Submissions may not be started before the launch of the contest.
    • Image editing software (PhotoShop, GIMP, etc) may not be used to enhance the final product. You may however use them to crop the image and e.g. add borders.
    • You are allowed to use The Ultimate Terraining Map 4.0 but can base it on whatever map you want as long as no other rules listed here are violated.
    • Only publicly available resources may be used. A link must be provided if it isn't found in the Hive or WC3C database.
    • Teamwork is not allowed.
    • Post at least one valid (unfinished) work in process to show that it's your own work.
    • The final entry must be posted before the deadline.

    SCORING

    I will score the entries myself. You are at my mercy.

    Creativity Includes how the theme was interpreted and portrayed. Note that there's a fine line between creative and completely offbeat. /10
    Tecnique Executional quality, techniques, tricks and overall terraining capacity. /10
    Aesthetics Overall appearance of the final entry as a whole, e.g. an entry can lack both detail and technique but still have an overall nice composition. /10


    AWARDS

    First place gets 20 rep and a spot in the winner sticky thread.


    DEADLINE

    All entries must be submitted before February 1st 2018, 23:59:59 GMT.

    DEADLINE REACHED.

    I'll make sure it gets done. (By someone else).

    20 doodads you say? The real challenge here will be to get away with more than 20.

    Or make fladder sprain an ankle while counting.

    I'll give it a ponder, if an idea decides to take residence in my head I'll throw it onto a canvas.

    What are the Judging Criteria?

    Oops, sorry. I meant to write GMT.

    Figured I'd score them the traditional way, based on how good they were. But I guess I'll sort out some form of table.

    Hello. Here is my humble and maybe not so foggy entry, inspired by Lovecraft's The Colour Out of Space.
    I've used just 19 doodads, taken from both The Ultimate Terraining Map 4.0 and Born²Modificate's High-Res Doodad Pack.

    Oh such a tight dealine for me. What a shame, I was actually willing to participate.

    I also remember @Kristopher doing some terrains back then

    this is not really my type of tea, shackled by mist and a doodad limit.
    and I'm fairly short on time, sadly enough.

    good luck to the participants.

    PS:
    @gusanomental gj on the GIF, that by itself should be a contest idea. [pitched it before, non-interested :(]

    I hope the next one contest would be without import, oldschool only.

    You can post your work-in-progress and your final entry this thread.

    Nice mood. I can see the start of the rain (the little area without raindrops) at the top of the image. You may want to hide that!
