No just mine

Everyone else I mean no offence.

Im so unhappy with it now - The fly though video will be better - Just need the time away from the computer to let it render.

Thinking of joining this challenge seeing as I bailed on the last one due to time.

Just a quick question - Would a cartoon style Devil character be allowed? Cant think of anything more Evil than a devil.

or in some cases not evil enough :p

Mike, would you have a seperate category, one for orginal characters and one for existing characters? (provided there are enough entries to justify both)

if there were enough entries for both categories, sure, that could be a good idea. if we get a prize, though, I imagine there'd still have to be only 1 overall grand prize winner.

The devil is not much of a super villan.

I know the rules in these challenges are some what lax at times but this is called a Super Villain Challenge.

The devil and Mr Burns just seem a little non super villain just more evil.

Just my 2 cents - mike makes the rules and if he said its ok - its ok, but if I was voting they would lose marks for not sticking to the brief.

" Mike, would you have a seperate category, one for orginal characters and one for existing characters? (provided there are enough entries to justify both)"

I say stick to the original plan; one prize one winner, let's face it there isn't any character going to be made here that is 100% original so just look at the end results and if an existing character is better made then an " original" one so be it.

And tweety i think Mr Burns is a supevillain albeit a bit cartoonesk, i think he is the lex luthor on the simpsons, and Lex Luthor is a supervillain in my book

I know he isn't the villain with superpowers like the X men , but Batman hasn't got superpowers yet he still is called a superhero, same goes for the joker and a couple of other ones aswell

I would have thought that Burns would have been a super villain, I mean he uses his powers (interlect and wealth) for selfish purposes and his own gain, similar to bond villians (which I would also class as super villains), though he is cartooney.

I'm also not bothered about winning or getting a prize, so write it off now. Just though that it would have been a fun character to model in 3d and fitted with the challenge and getting some fun modeling back into my life with a time constraint to stick to.

If you want I'll withdraw and move it into the WIP thread.

i know there's no such thing as 100% original etc etc etc you all know the rest of the same ol' story, i wasn't talking about that

i was talking about the villains that don't exist already if you ignore all the abstract likeness between an original character and an existing character

you could do Mr Murns, similar to mr burns but with a mohawk and a less pointy nose and it would class as an original character

but meh, obviously there would be one overall winner, but have some sort of informal aknowledgement of who had the better picture in original and existing, just like how Mike would mention other entries at the end of listing the winners

OMG, what an awesome theme!

As TMNT fan, i really have only one choice: the shredder. If possible, tengu shredder. Is it ok if i choose it? I just hope i'll have enough time.
