We want to see the best 3D stills  and animations artwork that you can develop using the rendering program and tools of your choice for the given subject. Over the 'Internet' and home-computing years, there have been many advancements in computer chip technology, which has enabled us budding 3D artists to actually do what we want to do. One usage that has catapulted in popularity on home computers is the ability to make/develop a still image or animation using various 3D rendering and raytracing programs used along with associated 3D modelling and texture software.

So get yourself some free programs (see above) and give it a try!

Last but not least, this TC-RTC website is here for everyone to have fun and to enjoy the experience of creating an image or animation in 3D given the present challenge.

We all look forward to seeing yours.

Above all else, enjoy the Challenge!
