Contest: A Road Trip in 2116

Jeremie Noguer on June 7 2016 | News, Events

Nothing beats a good old road trip to enjoy a weekend to the fullest! On Saturday, July 18th, 2116, what would be your ride?

 

Would you be driving among the ruins of our pre-World War III civilization, hoping not to come across a group of scavengers? Maybe you'd be floating in space, traveling smoothly at a hundred thousand miles per hour in your old beat up but still valiant Galaxy Cruiser. What about hovering a few feet over the electromagnetic freeway in a spanking new self-driving Cadillac Coupe? Or perhaps you're the kind of person who likes adrenaline fueled jet-bike trips down the Valles Marineris canyons on Mars.

 

Show us what kind of driver you would be a hundred years from now!

Rules

Design your dream vehicle of the future! This is not strictly limited to cars but instead extends to any potential mean of locomotion.

This is a "no-limit" contest, which means:

 

- No polycount limit. Subdivision, displacement, hair and fur are allowed.

- No texture size or material count limit.

- No restriction on the rendering method (real time or offline).

- No style restriction: stylized, fantasy entries welcome!

- No software restriction, but clever use of the Substance Toolset will be appreciated by the Jury.

- Use of particles, post processes, 2D and 3D background elements, characters, is entirely up to you.

 

Important: The subject should be put in context, either with a 3D or 2D environment or background, even simple or abstract. Here is a Pinterest board with a few examples.

Only original artworks created specifically for this contest will be accepted. Entries can be loosely based on existing concepts but still have to be original designs.

 

This is a solo contest, no teams allowed.


Contestants are encouraged to open a WIP thread on the Allegorithmic forum and post their progress all along the contest duration.
