You’ve seen him on our live streams (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FnvOg6OzwQ&index=41&list=PLY0i08rJ6hGh3KHdz5C6jBRX7MUo_Py2J)!

You’ve marveled at his artwork on our blog (http://redlynx.com/community/blog/336-trials-fusion-concept-art)!

Now is your chance to get an awesome piece of custom artwork from Redlynx concept artist Vaidas Bagonas for yourself.

With the all new replay camera in Trials Fusion you can take the most dramatic, spectacular, action packed screenshots the Trials franchise has ever seen. Of course we want to see your Trials Riders and custom tracks in all their glory using this new tool so we’ve set up this challenge and its awesome reward to get your creative juices flowing.

The challenge is simple. Take a screenshot of your rider or custom track and share it with us. We’ll pick out one lucky submission to get a paint over of their screenshot by the talented Mr. Bagonas. “What is a paint over?” I can hear some of you asking. A paint over is when an artist takes a screenshot and uses digital painting techniques to enhance the image and make it even more pleasing to the eye.

UPDATE: Vaidas has selected the winner and completed his paintover. Let's take a look at the screenshot that he selected and hear (read) a few words from the man himself:

Hi riders,

First of all; thank you for participating and your effort in taking cool screenshots of your jumps, stunts, flying, crashing and having fun in Trials Fusion. We received fare amount of pictures and had a tough time selecting just one that would be turned into spectacular poster. Our choice was TeriXeri's entry (pictured above). I thought it had the most potential in terms of atmospheric interpretation and filling the scene with magic jungle forest spirit.

At the same time it suggested a simple and elegant composition, while perfectly telling a Trials Fusion story around the rider, which is a center piece of the picture. I had a lot of fun playing around light, water, vegetation and all of the other little details which are not visible at the first glimpse. I hope that the result surprises and inspires all of you for upcoming challenges! I can't wait to see what happens next!

We've already seen the before, now let's get on with it and show you the After of Mr. Bagonas' artistic endeavors:

While the image posted here may be a little on the smaller side, TeriXeri will be receiving a high quality, high resolution version of this digital artwork.

What are these other "Challenges" that Vaidas was talking about? Well, don't go too far away, because we'll have more information soon.

There are many ways you can submit a screenshot:

Upload your screenshot to a photo sharing website and send us a link on Facebook, Twitter or the forums. This is the best option as it will allow you to share the highest quality image.


You are on PS4, surely you know that there is a function to upload screenshots to facebook and twitter by pressing the share button on your controller?

You could also use a digital camera. Send in a blurry, grainy image with TV scan-lines, and Vaidas will improve it to a 640 x 480 screen-cap! :D

I would like to know the best option as well. I could take a game dvr video, then screen cap a shot on my laptop, but that would be like 720 image upscaled to 1080 :P

Hey guys,

Being a PS4 player I didn't realize the X1 doesn't have screenshot support yet. I've looked around at a few workarounds but none of them are very good. Until screenshot support is added (http://www.gamespot.com/articles/xbox-one-getting-screenshot-feature-in-2015-micros/1100-6423117/) it seems the best option is to take a video clip and pull a still from it. I've spoken with Vaidas today and he said that while getting the highest resolution possible is best, he can still work with smaller images. Even ones captured with a camera could be doable but he might have to be a bit more creative in the presentation.

i might add that ist possibly better if you dont take the still from the Video, but take Video from a still.
like pause a replay and then gameDVR it.
Reason beeing the nature of Video Encoding where Details are lost on Scenes with much going on on Screen.
A Video capture of a paused, non moving Screen will propably provide you with a better Image Quality then a screenshot from a moving Scene.

Excellent point, should have mentioned that in my post. Definitely use the camera to get a good still image and take some video of the still image. This will give better quality than moving video as Steiner pointed out.

if i send in a picture of my self half naked riding a bike with a helmet on , oh and riding on my own custom track will that get me a paintover.

Remember i want a 12 pack like they did in the film 300:p and a tan:p

joking aside does it have to be your own custom track and can it also be skill games too

cheers

here is the link : http://www.noelshack.com/2014-48-1417165661-takachi2.jpg

I was really impressed by the work of vaidas, it should be cool to see the original screenshot to really appreciate the transformation...
in general, this custom camera is a good tool for people who make videos montages (shogun, you show us a really good example recently)...even if we can see the fake background of our tracks, it doesn't matter...you don't want to see, you don't look, i'm agree with that

I tried taking screenshot of FMX/Skillgame but it doesn't seem to hide the UI properly/fully outside of Trials mode.

I will still try to take a screenshot today or tomorrow.

End of the day using the free roam camera to see out of the map is just like going onto a game like call of duty and flying around in free roam to go out of the map and seeing all the non designed parts of the map. People that wanna make good screenshots/videos can work around it, and hopefully maps in the future will be at least designed in a way where there is at least minimal design behind the line etc.

I'm loving these pics guys, keep them coming :D @lBlubbiI, that bottom pic of yours looks amazing.

I've also been loving this new replay-camera and i've been spamming my twitter with pics for about a week now, and now i feel like sharing the spam with you guys also. So here's few of my favorites so far (I really hope these are not too big):

dam started something now havent you , thought i will have a go and add a couple started to take some pics of my own tracks , 30 images later saved to my ps4 i now have to choose. It was good looking back at some of my tracks and stuff. Think i might stick some in here and also add some to the threads for the fun of it. This feature is good for this sort of things most deffo. will add mine later. Oh can you upload images to you tube or is it just vids ? not sure were to share my images as dont use twitter or facebook. anyone point out a decent file share place please

some nice images going up .. looking cool guys

edit .. just realised most of the images i saved still have the hub on does this matter or can i be removed not thats these will win but just a thought

@funktastic easiest thing to do would probably be just to make a twitter account, since it's really easy to upload pics from your ps4 in there. Then just save the images to your pc and upload them to photobuckett or anywhere else you want and share them in here, or at twitter to @trialsgames #replaychallenge.

in my second attempt i thought i had removed the hud unitl i realised the time still which must mean you have to select it twice or im doing something wrong. nevermind bud i only wanted to stick a few up , actually made me see my sewer rat image ( waterfall drain ) would be awsome as a drawing. Think i might even get this personelly done my self and framed.:)

I only saw this now (Friday was Sinterklaas in The Netherlands) so I did not watch the stream.

Thanks for picking my screenshot, I really liked that track Nature Walk by Kush Land 604.

The screenshot location is very scenic. With combination of rocks/logs/lots of green and sunlight/water effects.

When taking the screenshot I tried to get the background sun in the screen, while still preserving the waterfall/rider's position near the center.

I made my rider the yellow half cyborg rider for fun as it's seen a lot in the artwork (like these forum background), as well as it stands out on a track like this.

The artwork looks truly amazing! Love all the added details and enhancements done to it.

Very nice paint over Mr. Bagonas and nice choice for the picture TeriXeri ;)

@RedLynx you should upload the high quality for everyone, it could be a very nice wallpaper. Maybe it's considered as 'reward' for TeriXeri and that's why it's not public. If there is a second edition, i'll try to take some screenshots.
