Get ready for the weekend with a new batch of releases, including a DAZ Originals bundle with a mythical theme: the Forgotten Grotto Bundle. Alongside this you’ll find an amazing dragon and its texture add-on, a realistic looking dirt lane for rural journeys, and some gorgeous fairy poses (511 in total with many more mix-and-match options) from ironman13.
You’ll get 50% off the stores of ironman13, Andrey Pestryakov and Design-Anvil if you buy one of these new releases (the DAZ Original items included) and there’s a small selection of related items on which you’ll get a 60% discount.
Other deals are still going on too, so if you are buying anything from earlier in the week make sure you take advantage of them.
Over at HiveWire 3D there are many beautiful entries now awaiting the verdict in the 2015 SBRM Open Rendering Season contest. I’m not an entrant this year, which makes it easy to root for my favourites! What’s more difficult is narrowing down that list with so many fine artworks to choose from. Artists such as Szark, Stezza, Atticus Bones, Ladonna and CWRW can always be relied on to come up with something special. There are some real eye-catcher from names that aren’t familiar to me too. I have no idea what the judges will pick, although I can be confident they will be deserving choices.
My personal favourites include Sharing is Caring (JurgenDoe), Sweet as Spring (Doodle Dream Designs), Family (Szark), Sunrise with Swans (Cathy MM), Mandarin Duck (Atticus Bones), and Leader of the Flock (DragonBreath), though there are many others I also admire. But I bet we all have different choices, and you can make your own predictions (just for fun, an independent panel decides the outcome) by viewing the SBRM contest gallery. As I said last year, though prizes are fun, there are no losers in a contest like this in any case.
