Nature Contest: Results In!!
Thanks for entering everyone, there were tons of great entries! The judging was difficult, but here are our final choices:
These are our averaged scores, and my commentary on your entries.
#1 The Argute ft. ItsColinGuys by Lightningboit2 and ItsColinGuys: 8.4
Well, I must say that this is some great detail. I absolutely love those clouds, and I'm a fan of the tiny detail you do. The mountains and rocks really attain an impressive level of three-dimensionality, but I wish the foreground was a little more developed. Because of how small your detail is, the whole track feels, well, small. Not a bad thing, but I'd be curious to see what you could do with a larger (object wise) track. My only complaint would be that because everything is on ramps, the nature sense is a little lessened. Overall, congrats guys, well done.
#2 Clouds Over Nepal Pt. 2 (NCE3) by QuinnFederle : 8.3
So, this is my personal favorite. I just love the way it looks zoomed out. It's really majestic, and the detail is great. The ride makes me happy, too! The thing I might suggest for the future is that the track feels separate from the detail. most of the ride is just lines with little connection to the theme. I still love it, but it would be cool if you found a way to ground the lines in the track, like making them the clothes-lines for the prayer flags, or just making them ground. That would make a track like this even better.
#3 Gwydyr by Calvin Examples : 8.1
This detail is very impressive. I love how clean the rocks are, and the trees look pretty sweet. I just, so badly, wish it was a little more goshdarn finished!! If the treetops were done, and the foreground was a little more developed, this could be a winner. (maybe a bit longer, too.) Nice!
#4 Enacted nature contest entry by TallTexan: 7.9
Man, I'm such a fan of your detail! I love the interesting way the trees look, it's pretty unique. The ride, while smooth, is what makes me a little sad. this track is so dependent on the ramps, which are not, of course, nature. I have nothing against a few ramps, but it would have been nice if you could have made the ride incorporate some more interesting features, like clouds, rocks, etc. The other thing, which i think i already told you, is that it feels lonely up there in the sky. Clouds or something would'a been nice. Overall, I love this track, but wish it could have stayed to the theme a little more.
#5 freegigawat by Cytral: 7.7
some pretty sweet rocks and a great start to a really cool track. just a little unfinished. very nice job, though.
#6 The Valley by TuttiFruity :7.0
Wow. For someone with 8 subs, you've outdone yourself. This is quite an impressive entry. I love the mountain shading, and the rocks are very nice. Wish it was a bit longer!
#7 Midnight Wasteland by CHuguley : 6.9
This is some pretty cool and unique ground detail. I like those jumps with the cracked tops, they're very cool! The trees and everything are very nice, but it feels very spread out to me. Nice job!
#8 Rain Forest by BlackRainbow: 6.2
You clearly put a lot of effort into this. I would say that it's your best track so far! I love the way you did the trees, and the waterfalls, while a little sloppy, look very good.
#9 Second Nature by Narwill_2.0: 6.0
This is a really awesome black line detail! those trees and rocks are very good. I like it in general, but would be nice to have some background.
#10 nature contest entry by IanMcMahon89: 5.8
I like the simple detail here, and the ride is fun. The detail just doesn't match up to a lot of the tracks here, and so it ranked a little lower.
#11 Abandoned (NCE) by Hockeygod: 5.3
It looks nice, but because it's such a close imitation of LightningboIt, It's not very original. I hope you do expand, and try some ideas of your own!
#12 Stranded (Nature Contest) by MarbleRunDominoGuy: 4.7
The setting is well developed, and it's an interesting ride, but the detail could use some improvement. If you developed the foreground and background a little, this could look really awesome. Nice job!
#13 Preview by Osiris: 4.1
Interesting caves, but it's definitely more of a WIP than a contest entry.
#14 Sizzle by Sinticrophoto: 3.9
Obviously this was just a really quick thing, but I like it. It would've been nice if you could have expanded with this detail; it look really good.
#15 Nature Contest by WilliamTaubenheim: 2.5
Cool rocks, but very short and under-detailed.
#16 I might possibly win 18K!!!!! by TogepiYoda: 2.2
Nice, Togepi! One of your best tracks yet! It would be nice if it had a little more detail, and clearer idea of setting.
#17 Nature Contest Entry by Sergey7890: 1.1
Nice line detailing, but awfully short.
#18 Nature Scene Logan.Meira6: 0.4
It's just hard to tell what I'm looking at.
Unfortunately, Inversely, your entry got deleted or something. I really liked it though!
Congrats to LightiningBoIt, ItsColinGuys, QuinnFederle, Examples, and TallTexan!!
I'll try to get prizes out to you guys ASAP.
Everyone say thank you to SilentFinger and Illicit! They were both helpful co-judges through this whole thing.
send my prize to Eucatatasrophe1 please Enacted
alright. i'll see if i can get the video to work for pro. might have to ask char. it won't necessarily be soon, but eventually you'll get them
thats the point its a wasteland so all the trees start dieing only some survived thanks for the mention
ayy, thanks for the cc. just don't got time for making good stuff.
judging was a little weird...ill take it though
in what way? i'm open to whatever you have to say.
Thought I did better than Quinn. You never specified on how complete the track had to be. oof
I am just seeing you added a prize for fourth place thanks, and I was surprised when I saw the first place entry was all ramps to when that was your main point.
But overall i'm not mad I just entered this contest because I like making nature tracks and I just put the ramps in because to me it isn't nature to have carved out pieces of rocks either but you can build ramps in nature.
I was just trying to draw a nature scene and then make it ride able.
nah, i liked quinns more, but yours was pretty sweet. and it's just averaged scores between three people.
Thanks I hope someday you come back and make another contest And I will make a much better track then I dd this time
I think his was better than mine, but mine was longer and more thorough.
And, that is fair, what you said, but their detail was superior. it's just average scores, my score for their wasn't as high as the other judges, it's just the way it works
they were both unique and special... ...just like everything else.
yup I understand and agree with y'all's decision and thanks for the coins !
you just biased my guy examples tf
