3D Exhibition Contest

I am almost certain many of us have the dream to have their Artworks exposed in a Gallery.
Did you have try it ? try to have a gallery interested about what you are doing ?
Me I did ... and even before to have a chance to show them what is my work, here in Canada to have an Exhibition somewhere seems something impossible unless you have good useful contacts  and connections.
They ask so many things : Curriculum vitae, Bio, your Artistic steps, money, and yes you also send them a CD with 10 to 20 works recent from the actual year and the wait can be long as 2 years before to be judged...Very discouraging.

So I don't even know if I  can still dream about it, and just to stop to dream at it. But I thought if it can't coming true in real, why not in virtual. So I decided to run a contest. Yes yes a contest !
Please be nice and understanding, it is my first contest ever, so it is a new experience.

If you have any suggestions, please go for it and tell me.

Thank you so much for the feature!
I would love a try, but I'm just a photographer...
It's kinds hard, 3D, for me at least ;)
But the prizes are great!
You would make the winner very very happy with it!

Yukkabelle's avatar
You are most welcome :hug:
You can still participate if you wish, I accept 3D but also "similar" as I said in my journal :D By similar I mean I accept other medias than 3D : photomanipulation, digital mixed media, etc.. Perhaps I should to be more precise in my journal ?
Akayra's avatar
Haha, I think it is clear enough :D
Now for me at least ^^
I'm gonna see if I have the time for a try,
maybe I can take pictures of a museum or something around here and edit...
Hm, I'm gonna try for you! :hug:
You pictures are just too lovely!
Especially the ferret-ones :aww:

Very nice idea of a contest, and great prizes, too ! :)
If time allows, I´ll surely participate, I´ve just got a quick question though.
You said that you´d like the Louvre, would such an image be ok as an entry ? [link]
(Of course with your pictures and in better quality :D)

Thank you very much for this contest, I´m really looking forward to this ! :)
Yukkabelle's avatar
Thank you so much for your very nice message. I am glad that you like the idea of the contest :aww: ... And I hope you will have the time to participate :D

Yes an image will be ok. I asked for 3D but also, I said "or similar" in the meaning of an image, a "flat" image, a manipulated image ...

But pay attention if you use for your "background" an image that is not yours, that you have the entire rights and permissions to use it ! If you don't know don't use it ! it is better to be safe with copyrights infringements.

I like the Galerie Médicis , this one represented on the image you linked to me, with the amazing glass ceiling.

But yes of course it will be better to create "My Gallery" in better quality and with also originality and some creativity, with a great angle of view.

You are most welcome, and thank you for you interest :heart:
xcEmUx's avatar
Yeah, of course I´d build a complete new one in 3D, maybe not just a "flat" image, but a 360° Panorama, would surely be nice to be able to "walk" in the gallery :)
Thank you very much for your answer, I´ll give my best ! :)
Yukkabelle's avatar
OH ! All this sounds very very interesting :aww: I can't wait to see the result :excited:

You are most welcome, don't hesitate to ask if you have other questions :D :heart:
xcEmUx's avatar
I was very busy with school, so I didn´t have much time the last two weeks :(
I´ve prepared the overall building now and added some of your deviations I liked the most. :D
If you´d like me to change anything right now, just tell me ! :)

Version 1 ([link])
Version 2 (Heavy Postwork: [link])

Hope you like it :)
Yukkabelle's avatar
It looks so nice :aww: and I like it :heart:

Some little things :
The version 2 has so many dust on it, like white dots ? but the version 1 is very clean and clear. Version 1 is better quality.

You use 2 time the same photo. The big wall-photo is the same of the fourth. You should to change one of the two ;)

Thank you so much for participating and suggesting, keep the good work :D
xcEmUx's avatar
Yeah, in Version 2, I used some filters and color corrections to create the "old photo look", it´s a question of taste (hope that´s the right English ^^) if you like it :)

You´re right with the same photo, I didn´t really perceived that :D

For the final image I´m thinking about adding some people to the scene and maybe add some cordon / railing around the photos.
What do you think about that, or is there anything else you´d like to have in the scene ? :)

Thank you very much btw for the feedback, it really helps me a lot ! :)
Yukkabelle's avatar
You are most welcome :aww:

I prefer a "clean" view than an old photo book. Usually I like old look but I think it this specific case I prefer a clean view. Yes that is right English. Your English is good. I speak French if you prefer.

Try with the add of people and with the add of cordons, I will let you know what I prefer. If you wish you could to make one with the people without the cordons, make one with the cordon only without people, and make one with both added.

I hope that helps :D
