Default Lazy people, yes I'm looking at you!

Most of us are here to learn more about Maya, one of the best ways to do this is to take part in one of the challenges here on the site. You'll get lots of feedback on your work and as usual at SimplyMaya it's not about being able to produce stunning work, it's about giving it ago.

So why not give it ago? Don't worry if you think your end result won't be fantastic, you'll get some good tips and advice and you will learn something which is why we're all hear in the first place. Hell i'm even giving away my own money to the winner

I like dogs more, haha.
I'm still considering if I should give my current project a break and give the challenge a try, but first I need to back up my computer because it sounds like it's going to die soon. So hopefully I'll be able to by this weekend.

Just don't put it in a bin afterwards, that'll really annoy everyone.

Its now tuesday, if you havent taken part you are either in a coma from an awsome new years party or as David says are one of the lazy people, my guess is the latter.

Cheers

You're right, I know I'm lazy. Not too sure how to beat it sometimes. I've entered a few comps around here and have never finished one, well except for the Minotaur one, which was mutually agreed to be ended due to shared circumstances.

It seems that even with work I have enough time to browse around and look at other peoples work... should probably start working on my own. But as the holidays have just ended, and a alcohol educed hangover isn't the only "Hangover" I'm trying to work off... I've been cutting myself a bit of slack.

...excuses lol

Hey...I'm not..ok well i am..But I'd taken part in this one by now, if it wasn't for the fact i'd planned on already being involved in a challenge on the side with Mrs. " Post Placement Nazi" over there at David's House LoL. Though i reckon I might just jump on board anyway. even if i don't finish it could be fun to start on it.
