An Impossible Challenge?

The Competing Competitor's Competition   -  Water!

It's a small planet, a tiny world. Let's share. And preserve what's good for us. Us all.

And let's keep water plentiful and good, clean, healthy and refreshing. Not just for you and I. For everyone. Water is life. Without water, no tears to mourn the loss of water.


We've done joint projects with Pixarra before. Remember the days of the Cool Creative Bundle?

This time, Pixarra and TheBest3D are running a competition, an art contest. Digital art. It can be 2D painted, 3D rendered, 4D imagined. All tools are fine as long as they're digital. And no, don't you just go using a digital camera. Be a bit more creative. The planet deserves that much.

Pixarra and - paint Water, render

Paint it, render it, something like that. You can use Twistedbrush Pro Studio or other versions, from Pixarra, or PD Artist, PD Howler, PD Particles, even the GIMP, and why not even Photoshop, Artweaver, ArtRage, MS Paint :-) ... Irfanview (?), or other beloved tools of the trade. PLUS a number of 3D tools, of course including PD ARtist/Howler for Puppy Ray GPU, rendering of water, but also Carrara, Bryce, DAZ Studio, Lightwave, Cinema4D, Hexagon, Blender, you name it... model it, render it, let it flow. Check the water colors brushes, try pigment lifting, add paper texture.... make believe. And don't forget to get out of your comfort zone, that computer chair, and grab a fresh glass of refreshing water. And scream your lungs out: Here we are!.... Thanks, H2O!

It don't matter if it's a Picasso or Rembrandt, or just some unknown digital foray... be there, be part of your future with clean water. Tell your story, share your dreams or nightmares. Paint!

Yeah why not. There is a higher cause, but why not.... You
just might be the lucky winner of a great latest version of Project Dogwaffle or something else similarly awesome from Pixarra. And if you already have a great paint tool, don't forget that Pixarra also has isolated some of its tools into standalone gadgets, add-ons, such as the awesome Tree Studio, or blob studio. You'll see some references about it there too. We did use TreeStudio a while back with a tutorial video.

Alan Walker Concerts in the US - World Tour
While waiting, stay updated on Alan Walker's music,
Alan will be in the US in February, Oakland, CA, Los Angeles / Pomona and then into central and Eastern states. Are you a Walker?

Here's something very recent (3 days as of 1/26/2019)

and our beloved Romy Wave of course on her YouTube channels - check her playlist, including the blind auditions on the Voice (of Switzerland) -

Don't know about the connection between Alan and Romy?

This is not just about Music. This is, in many ways, connected to the same message as what we see in the drawing contest: Water. It's about awareness, ecology, cleanup efforts.

Too late to cleanup our mess? Is Earth turning into Mars?
