thanks cure! and lol at the candle monster

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/6/2011 18:22

a torch isn't a candle. neither is a stick of dynamite, a mario fireball, etc. I think most people have a pretty solid idea of what a candle is.

also this is a real candle monster

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/6/2011 18:16

the latter. the spirit of the challenge is utilizing a single, relatively weak (or at least small) light source.

in addition to space, there's one other place: the imagination ;)

but if the ambient lighting is dim enough and the candle very obviously the focal point, then it will probably go over OK.

Is it within the spirit of the challenge to have a dim ambient light like a night sky?
Or is this a dark, closed room with just one candle kind of deal?

I mean, the only truly dark place I can think of, with no ambience and no reflections whatsoever, is space. And the way objects are shaded in space is: one side superbright, everything else superblack.

That's a really cute Pokemon. ^_^

Adcrusher (Level 6 Major) @ 9/5/2011 16:26

Would a torch be allowed? Or should we keep it to a wax candle?

tanuki (Level 1 Seaman) @ 9/5/2011 16:15

I was thinking a candle monster would be like this pokemon

I think I'm going to do this challenge for real this time, I'm just not sure exactly what I'm make yet.

Hmm, candle monster... You mean like this?  http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/64221.htm

The spirit of the challenge is obvioiusly to for it to be a regular candle, thus a single and very tiny lightsource. But we anticipated someone would make a ten-foot-high gigantic candle.

Definitely a 'no' on the candle-monster though.

 The time has come for practicing my lighting skills!

Does this candle has to be a regular candle? Or it can be some kind of a giant candle structure or candle monster?

 aka 'practice your lighting skills' :P

I can just imagine how much wonderful pieces that'll come from this challenge. Beautiful idea! :)
