Rules for posting

1 - The work you wish to post must achieve a minimum quality standard of 70 points to get published, calculated as follows:

Modeling (15 points)To achieve high-quality images you don´t have to model every single element on your scene, but the standard of your models need to be high. Try to avoid sharp edges and low poly geometry on close-ups. Random folding and/or asymmetry on soft material models will score more points.

Lighting (15 points)Correct lighting is crucial. Not only does it add perceived realism but also helps to the mood and creates storytelling.

Materials (15 points)Good materials contribute a lot to the overall quality. Rich and detailed shaders help increase the realism and interest in the scene.

Color (15 points)Using color combinations that work well together is one of the most important factors when trying to make an image look aesthetically pleasing.

Composition (15 points)Composition helps guide the viewer to certain important elements on your scene and contributes to the overall harmony. A good composition can be made by using contrast, color, or geometric rules (like the rule of thirds) to achieve visual balance.

Framing (10 points)Framing is based on the camera positioning and aspect ratio of your image and can be related to or help your composition.

Complexity (5 points)This doesn´t mean that your scene needs to be cluttered with elements. More often than not, less is more. But even a simpler scene can be far from easy to accomplish.

Storytelling (5 points) - Storytelling is about applying uncertainty, curiosity, and dynamism into an image and it helps to improve the viewer´s experience. For example, a slightly open drawer, a worn-out vase, or a misaligned chair makes the scene more believable and triggers the imagination.

Originality (5 points)Looking at dozens of renderings every day, we often come across very similar scenes and assets. Of course, the living room visualization with the centered sofa and armchairs is fine, and also the low-budget residential building needs representation, but they lack the WOW factor. The success of an image often depends on the originality of the subject which offers a richer experience to the viewer.

If your post was not published in the next 3 workdays after requesting, you probably didn't get enough points to meet our quality standards. Due to the high number of requests, we will not be able to give feedback on why your work wasn´t accepted.
