Hello everybody! We know that you are looking forward to our new competition and here comes this solemn moment when *trumpets blare* we open it. This time the theme is more complicated and interesting; it requires your creativity and throws you a real challenge. Yes, there is a lot to compete for.

“Most Legendary Car” It is a big deal, surely, as it can fly, swim or even go to space. Your legendary car may run on electricity, it also may be a part of some important historical events. The only restriction here: it should be YOUR legendary car, you personal legend. In your childhood you had posters with this automobile on the walls; your grandpa or your favorite hero had it. This automobile might be fictional, but it should be steeped in your personal story. And this story has to be told in the description of your work. You should explain why this vehicle is legendary for you. The automobile might be symbolic and well-known, taken from a history textbook or from comics. The main thing - it should important to you.

This competition gives you a marvelous opportunity to combine your love of history and concepts with your personal creativity.

We are waiting for your renders until the 1st of December (00:00 GMT) inclusive. Have a good render and a lot of inspiration!

General rules:

  • 1)

    The work must not have been previously published anywhere, neither online or offline.

  • 2)

    There should be an automobile or another similar vehicle in your work and it should be clear for the jury what is so special about it. A tiny dot on the horizon with a subscription "my legendary car" will not do.

  • 3)

    We hope to see some special entourage round your car that would complement your idea. That means, that if your car is able to fly through space, it would be nice and logic to draw it flying there or being parked at a spaceport. Historical event, for instance? Try to place it in historical surroundings.

  • 4)

    Please, provide your work with a short story on why you consider this vehicle legendary.

  • 5)

    Attach to your work one wireframe or clay render at your choice - we will place it below your work.

Demands for your render:

  • 1)

    The render should be at least 1000 pixels wide if the work is horizontal. Vertical ones may have any proportions :)

  • 2)

    Render size should not exceed 1.5 mb.

  • 3)

    It is desirable that you add the link to the competition in one of the corners yourself (so that you can control the quality of saved work).

We took into account all your wishes. The works will be judged by the jury which would include our sponsors and Humster3d team. However, don't forget to support your colleagues with likes! Now you also have the possibility to add comments on the works, so don't hesitate to enter into discussion. We count on your discretion.

Waiting eagerly for your work!
