Our friends over at AXYZ Design are running a photorealistic rendering contest with prizes worth over $21,000.
Just download the digital character model provided and render it either to replicate a real studio lighting set-up, or in a wider architectural space, and you could win stock assets from AXYZ Design itself, software from Siger Studio, and a range of books, training and online render credits.
You’ll need to use 3ds Max and mental ray or V-Ray and no post work is allowed: it all comes down to your lighting and rendering skills. The closing date for entries is 5 November.
