Hey there, I don't know if I'm in the right place or not, or how I would go about this, but I had seen the Polycount fighting game contest and really like the level of skill and range of styles, and was wondering if I could suggest a contest/collab theme?
I guess I could introduce myself first; my name is Tyler Rhodes, and I'm an animator who decided one day to make an animation about evolution. What's special about the animation is it involves many people who 'evolved' their drawings over time, which I then animated. I wanted to stray from the typical depiction of evolution as a linear process and instead represent it as a branching structure. You can see the animation here
and more general info on my process etc. here http://evolutionanimation.wordpress.com/
Recently it was posted about on Scientific Americans website and made their video of the week, and has since bounced its way all over the internet garnering comments from Richard Dawkins all the way to Ken Ham, so I figured the time was right to finally ask you guys if you were interested.
I was just l curious if you all would be willing to do some kind of collaborative something-or-other? Maybe not so much a contest, but just a fun exercise of using the kids drawings for inspiration to make some interesting 3-d art? I figured it would be the most fun to make low-poly models to keep it in the spirit of a limited crayon doodle, but anything is fine by me!
I'd love to hear your ideas, and thanks!
