Thank you Solo!
I was playing around with Thea's auto focus and found that it works very well, this model is a low polygon, and the displace map worked very well too!

Well here's my entry. Nothing changed compared to the former one, but i had the pleasure of 300 more passes. Shame really, compared to the other renders i really need to add more oomph. (but that won't happen before the 15th ;-) )

Wow very nice job there!
I first thought I'd find some time to participate but finally...
IMO the Stu-dio approach is the good one by far: Nothing too spectacular, fresh image and nice graphism. It gets a very professionnal and tasty look. After all the Chameleon beast is not a so sexy one ;) why would it be the center of composition. In fact it should stay a sort of allegory Playing with its skin, and skin colors is sufficent to give this Thea versatile taste.
Just my opinion of course but... ;)
I appreciate Eph work on the logo

1) rendered in thea - text etc InDesign


2) this is how it should look - chameleon added in PS (no time/skill to model that well)


3) how the standard splash would look

PS - Pistus great idea - a winning idea

I liked it - and took it on-board, you didn't notice?? I made the colours deeper - not sure about black - but that's just me. If we keep the colours it's a nice way to easily identify with each product. One thing though am not sure where you are getting the orange from - you mentioned it part of Thea's colour scheme - the colour scheme I'm getting is definitely red on my monitor - having said that - orange and black always marry very well

Found this contest too late. No time to model or render. So just a fast PS compilation as an concept.

PS and you definitely need a space between Thea and Render otherwise it kinda reads The Arender - and loses it's meaning - "Thea" in greek means Aunty but it also symbolizes someone with whom you trust and is all wise, providing and protecting... at least that is my findings living here.

Hi :wave: , thanks for the comments.
I tried another colorfull variation for default splash style, and simple design of entire splash screen in Gimp (it would be better).
I hope you like it.
