New post: Christmas 2011

Ho ho ho! With December almost upon us, it only makes sense to have a Blender Christmas post. The rules are simple: Create an image related to Christmas. The best image wins.

Guidelines

  • It must be created with Blender
  • You may use any external renderer you wish
  • Minor post processing in Gimp or Photoshop is allowed
  • Minimum image size is 1280 x 720, but the bigger the better (any aspect ratio is fine)
  • Your image must be a new creation, not an existing project
  • It must be your own work. No bought/borrowed or third party models allowed (including MakeHuman)
  • Photographic elements are allowed, but must not be a central part of the image (sky backgrounds are okay)
  • Your image must in some way relate to the theme
  • The winner will be required to submit the .blend file for proof of it's creation
