[Competition] 3D Kars! Winners Announced

You all know i love 3D and videogames. The idea for this competition comes from a new project i’m working on (you will know soon) that has to do with little cars…so let’s begin:


Competition Mechanics

This is the Kar without texture

Participants will create their own texture for the Kar based on the following templates.

If you choose this one, you will have the same design for the side of the car, because it mirrors itself at the other side.

If you choose this one, you can do different designs for the each side of the car

After a participant finishes his/her texture and post it in this forum,i will download it and apply it to the Kar,then i will post a preview of the car. When a participant is satisfied with the previews he must pick 1 kar to have a 360 view ,then i’ll make the 360º view of the Kar with his/her texture.

That’s it.


How texturing works?

The template i give you above, it’s an unwrapped version of the kar, what you have to do is to paint the different parts of the kar that appear on the template using the image editor of your choice. When i apply that texture to the 3D model, it wraps around it.

Look at my example

I painted inside the lines using the template, after i finished the design, i deleted the template and only keep the paint.

Then using a 3D Program i apply that texture to the kar and this is what you get:

Here is my .psd file (Made in Photoshop CS4 Extended but with compatibility for other versions of photoshop and also for GIMP users) with all the layers arranged independently, so you can take a look at how i did mine.
And here is the model as .obj and as .max (3ds Max 9)


Rules & Advice

-You can submit as much designs as you want and every one of them will participate, but you can only pick one of them to have a 360° view in the entries section.
-Stay inside and on the lines (there’s nothing wrong if you paint on the outside but only what’s inside and on the lines will appear in the Kar)
-Keep your template in a different layer,after you finish the design, disable that layer and only post the paint.
-Save your image as a .PNG
-The texture must stay at the same dimensions as the template (512×512)
-Original Artwork is always plus +
-No spamming
-Kongregate Forum Rules & Guidelines apply


Prizes

Trophies with the winners name on them…who doesn’t like trophies!

And (if this game project takes off) i will include your texture in the game giving you credit.

Good Luck!

yes, you can submit as much designs as you want and every one of them will participate, but you can only pick one design to have a 360° view in the entries section. For the rest of the designs i will only post an image

btw.: i’m adding this to the rules :) thx

That looks really great, Zshadow. All the textures lined up really well. I’m excited to see more submissions.

Mine looks pretty messy as I kinda rushed it, but I’m still excited to see how it turns out on a car. I used a fractal theme, look weird :P

Holy crap that’s really awesome. I’m having problems guessing where the tires will line up on the sides for mine.

ok guys, i’m at home now! I updated the entries, fixed the camera angle for the previews so all cars will be in the same position, improved the quality of the render and added a reflection on the ground. :)
