20 or More
 Jun 23, 2017

Use any 3D program you like (Blender, Sculptris, Poser, DAZ 3D, etc.) to create an image with at least 20 characters. A crowd of people, a herd of cows, a flock of birds, your choice, but there needs to be at least 20 of them.

This will clearly run you up against the limits of your machine, so you are going to have to use some method other than trying to load 20+ characters. The only thing you can't do is put a 2D crowd background up and render it. Pretty much everything else is fair game, duplicate nodes, low pixel counts, billboards (pre-rendered 2D sections on planes) whatever way you can get at it is fine.

Although this is primarily a 3D contest you may use post-production (e.g. in Photoshop) to enhance your image.

Hit List:The characters cannot be a 2D background, but billboards are permissible -

(note: for those that are counting, the picture above only has 18 characters including the tank, which gives you an idea what the difficulty is going to be)
