David , love your image, very nice perspective . However, must take issue with the ship in that its bow should be behind the iceberg or I'm afraid we'll have another Titanic.


It's anchored Frank, so not moving. But your point is well taken. Somehow I couldn't get my heart and attention fully behind this one.

Re: Challenge 898: The Endurance
Lovely stuff everyone.

Hey Michael, I now understand "anchored to the water. Well over the plimsoll line...lol. Nah, nice one.

Daz update has just introduced vdb's. The ability to render volumetric volumes so that's where I'm at.

A PA artist at Daz; Ansiko; did a model of the Endurance. This is a quick render of it stuck in the ice.

Re: Challenge 898: The Endurance
What a rebuild, Mariner. Mr Shackleton would be very pleased with that

Thanks, Anna. It was difficult. It taught me a few things.

Re: Challenge 898: The Endurance
First to brave the Antarctic weather this week was Ant Snell, with a gloriously stormy entry. A fantastic rebuilt boat, great waves, and a real sense of drama. Perhaps even better if the sailor was holding the wheel. Glad your hand is recovering, Ant - itís clearly working well.

Good to see that diving suit resurrected in lwc's animated entry. I like the way the shark subtly swims through the ship, and the stream of bubbles is fun. Maybe the diver should bob about a bit? Fabulous tentacles in the second entry. Although perhaps they could do with some more convincing texture, or even a sucker or two.

I feel seasick just looking at michael sinclairís entry - I think itís the fact that the waves rise and fall in opposite directions. Really nicely done, Michael. The only thing Iíd correct would be your choice of sky - thatís not a horizon-level view.

Thereís a vast narrative in Frank's animation, with some spectacular special effects: the light flares on that underwater craft are particularly impressive. I like how the boat rises once the captainís on board, greatly helped by the intricate soundtrack. Beautiful work, Frank. Oh, and thanks for your scholarship on the problem of the rear-facing helmsman.

Classy work from GKB, starting with the rippling title. The water distortion on the ship and Shackleton are fine, although surely the effect should apply to the fish as well? I like the way they move, especially the ones that swim through the wreckage.

A powerful image from DavidMac, showing a lot of intrigue and mystery. The rolling water edge is very dramatic. I agree with Frankís assessment, though: with the ship clearly anchored behind the iceberg, it doesnít make sense for its bow to be sticking in front of it.

A strongly tinted skeletal scene from tooquilos, suggesting a blue movie to follow. But itís clear skies at the start of the animated version, showing the ship wrecking and gradually dropping beneath the waves. I really, really like the subtle movements of the shipís wheel - youíre the only one to attempt that this week! Glorious.

A handmade reconstruction from Mariner, with a rigging array that I assume is authentic and a rather grumpy-looking captain. I really like the shadows, the new wheel housing and, especially, the open door to the downstairs (insert technical maritime term here) which offers much promise. Excellent work, Michael, a tremendous job.

Is dwindt's entry a photograph? No, it seems to be a rendered 3D scene. Extraordinary. Was there a lot of Photoshop work afterwards?

Re: Challenge 898: The Endurance
I have tried to change the texture on the tentacles, but they are a preset and refuse my efforts...

Thanks Steve...!
