You've probably noticed that I'm not making as many 3D Rendered images as I used to in the past.  Well I'm having trouble with my eyesight.  I'm told that it is an acute case of eyestrain.  I've been forced to take to photography in order to get away from my computer screen.  It's painful to even wright this entry.  I have to match the light (being emitted from my monitor) with the light in the room.  I can work on Photographs because they only take a few minuets to produce versus a 3D rendering that can take upwards of five to twelve hours.  My doctor doesn't want me even doing that, but I've got to create something or I'll go nuts!  I'm going to ask someone to take over my group because the members deserve more than I can give right now.  Sorry.

Submission Rules

The Submission Rules:

1. This group is all about the ships of Star Trek. No matter how good your art is, we will decline anything that is not a. Star Trek b. exterior view a ship. That means no portraits of Spock or bridge scenes.

2. The minimum size is 720 pixels on the smallest side. Example 800x600 is too small. While 1024x768 is okay. We need to see your work. We need to see the detail. That can't be done with smaller resolutions.

3. The submitted art must have artistic merit. No hand drawn doodles, poorly painted or rendered art will be accepted.

4. NO CUT SCENES OR SCREEN CAPTURES from video games or movies! At the very least, it takes no skill to preform this task and at the worst, it is a violation of copy right! Just as a warning, we will not only decline your submission, but also turn you in for copy right violation. So please no movie screen captures!

Here is how it works. The Contributors will vote. Four votes yea and your submission will be accepted or four votes nae and your submission will be declined. The Founder and Co-founders can accept or decline a submission with only their single vote.

While anyone can become a member, if you are interested in becoming a Contributor, you must meet the following guide lines.
1. You must be an artist with an established portfolio.
2. You must have several (ten or more) images with Star Trek as the theme. It would help if they were of Ships, but if you are a very good artist, we wont turn you away.

Declined. Why?
GlenRoberson Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2015
The rules are posted on the front page.  In order to be a member of our group, you must be an artist and have a portfolio of at least a dozen original, individual Star Trek images.  In addition, the images must be of high artistic value.  I'm sorry but your portfolio doesn't meet those requirements.  It's nothing personal, but when the group was created we decided that membership would be for artists only.  You can still follow the group and get updates in your mail.

Ok so my Ship [link] was declined no big.
My question was it declined becauce is fell under rule 3 "poorly painted or rendered art will be accepted."
For my defence I don't know how to render anything
GlenRoberson Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012
Yes, first there is no background. Which forces the eye on the ships, and the ships are only marginally better than the background. Also, your image too small. The smallest image we will accept is 720p. If you do not know how to render, then learn. There are plenty of resources for you to use. There are even free programs like Blender and Gimp.

Is this any better? [link] Now I'm going to try and get some sort of background in.
GlenRoberson Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2012
When you save the ship, save it as a .png file. Only the ship will be visible. You will be able to place it over any background that you wish. Remember, if you use a stock background, you need to give the artist proper credit. But it looks good for a first start. :)
