1.2.0 splash screen contest

With the release of 1.2.0 a few weeks away (or at least we hope so), it is time to start thinking about a new splash screen.

Do you want to design the 1.2.0 splash screen? Then post a contribution in a reply to this post. If you win, your image will be used as the MakeHuman splash screen from the release of 1.2.0 and until the next release. Proper attribution will be included in the image.

The contest will be open for contributions until 2020-09-12, at which point we'll set up a public poll and let the community vote on who the winner should be.

Basic ground rules for contributions are:

  • Image should be exactly 800x600 px large
  • Should be reasonably safe for work (at least not get us insta-banned from facebook or youtube)
  • Should not include any text (we'll add attributions, version info and so forth afterwards)
  • Should not include the MH logo (we'll add that too afterwards)
  • Using assets from the repos is perfectly ok, but add a note in your reply about which assets have been used and if they need CC-BY attribution

Anyway, here's my contribution: "Nocturnal woodland procession"


This is all makehuman + blender, no post-processing. Used blender plugins are mpfb, modular tree and rock generator.

Possibly, I should re-render it with a higher number of samples. This render took two and a half hours on my dual Geforce 980 station.

My contribution: "Mr. Ladies Man X"

Background is added. Clothing is made from free models available online, tweaked and retextured. Some minor vertex edits on the ladies after importing MakeHuman models. More edits on the man to make wrinkles and the face weirder with more visible teeth. Facial expressions are made after.

Here is my contribution. This was rendered in blender cycles on low samples only around 1k. All models are makehuman models. The models are using a molten material in place of skin. There was a gimp filter used to further dramatize the firestorm effect. The models are representative of baby to old age, dancing around the burning makehuman man.

I have decided to make a submission. There are two variants of my submission, a clean version and a version with a white haze. The reason for this is that this scene is a dream, so the haze was added to add some dream-like visuals to the image, though I have also provided the clean version in the case that is preferred.

I suck at naming things like this, but here is the name I have come up with for this submission: "Nightmare's Over Now"

The models were made in MakeHuman and rendered in Blender. The image was rendered with 256 samples and went through some compositing filters in Blender to denoise, slightly de-saturate, and add a bit of glare. The version with a white haze started as the clean one and has had a large circular gradient applied to the image in GIMP.

Here is the clean version:

Here is the version with a white haze:

Bandeau bra: punkduck
Elvs Long Halterdress1: Elvaerwyn
hair_female_medium: grinsegold
Pearl-chain earrings: punkduck
Short Bodysuit (Female): punkduck
Skintight Body Suit (Female): TioMegamanX

If the Starbound Protectorate iconography isn't sufficiently covered up and needs to go, then I can get rid of it and re-render these.
