    Polycount is proud to announce our latest video game art contest PETROL/BLOOD, sponsored by Quixel and Marmoset!

    This contest is a “next-gen, PBR” focused contest to get the community familiar with current art pipelines and rendering possibilities.

    The theme of this contest is simple: Participants will create a diorama of a vehicle and its driver* who are competing in a vehicular death-match tournament. Not one, but two beauty images will be required to entry: An in-action shot, and a pre-battle or post-battle pose that depicts the emotional connection a pilot or rider has with their vehicle or beast.

    The contest ends August 9th, 2014So what are you waiting for!?

      Wow,awesome idea!! Just a few questions tough?

      Its a diorama so what about pedestals n' stuffs , the road ect, fuel tanks on the ground ect…nothing is mentioned.
      Also Is 4×4×6 meters not a little limiting? That does not allow for very big vehicles/beasts or am I wrong?
      I don't want to whine but I need some precisions if possible.

      The idea here is to avoid large vehicles :)

      I'll update the page to talk about the diorama specs.

      woohooo, this really ROCKS \m/

      A vehicle AND a character? That's a bit hardcore to do in my freetime. Can we cooperate, i.e. have one person create the character and another the vehicle? The only problem I would have with this is if the guy who makes the character screws up, even though my vehicle is ready.

      Could you not make a subcontest that allows for either a vehicle or a character to be judged independently? I have a really great concept for a vehicle I wanted to make for ages, but I don't really care about characters that much.
