Mandelbulb3dTeasers First Annual Challenge Winners conducted by
A big huge thanks to all that made this first annual Mandelbulb 3d Teaser special such a great success! This month we had a total of 60 deviations entered in the challenge. As you all know, there were three parameters to tweak, one from each of the Teaser admins, Lux, Tim and Hal. Many participants tweaked all three parameters. It's obvious by the variety of tweaks that we have a talented group of people eager to express themselves with their own visions and interpretation of exotic imagery that tell a story or take us on a memorable journey. They aren't just pictures, they're our imaginations turned loose to wander about new worlds, exploring tunnels and canyons, machinery and cities and beautiful unexplainable abstracts.
Everyone deserves a hearty congratulations! The purpose of this group is to help each other learn and apply new techniques as well as become proficient using Mandelbulb 3d. The unique rules challenge us every month to try new things, and what better way is there to learn? We all come away winners. And most importantly, just have fun. It's not about winning, it's about learning. It's not about being as good as or better than someone else, it's about being as good as you yourself can be.
The voting process for this month was suspended and instead judging was done by the three admins. The process is always difficult but we managed to choose a first and second place winner from each tweak folder. While the admins each had their own set of criteria, I feel it can not be stress enough that it's always important to make sure each formula you use has an impact in your finished image. This does not necessarily mean it was a deciding factor in our choices, but it is an unwritten and unenforced rule that does come into consideration. It's kind of a loophole in the rules, but in order for you to get the most out of these challenges, you should try your absolute best to make each formula count.
