Battle request

As Kevin's and Tariq's female body battle seems to be dead I am opening another one. The female head I made last year needs a body anyway so I thought why not do it in a battle. I've been a bit too inactive for last couple of months so I'm hoping this could bring my motivation back too...

To: Anyone
Topic: Female Body, no head, no clothes
Modeling Type: Whatever
Textures: Yes
Must show refs and wip screenshots
Time Limit: 6 weeks - I know that I'm going to struggle finishing this and I don't want to take too much pressure about this... Too much other things to do too

Not sure if this sould go here, so please delete it M if you think it shouldn't...

how about a battle or tournament like they have on http://10secondclub.org/ ? we would all be given the same sound clip (short one ) and have to animate it? like a line from a movie or tvshow

all the other tournements have been modeling, and this would force us to learn animation.

just a thought

I love the idea howard, but for lots of people on this board i think that would be a very complex task. I know what you mean though, we should give it a try some time and see how it goes :thumbsup: thanks for the idea . Im not going to delete it because it just might happen one day.

for howard's idea, i think we would need to provide a model, that everyone would use so that people didn't end up deciding on the model, even of the comp was supposed to be about animation. Plus that way we could all jump right into learning blendshapes and things like that!

nooooooo... I am a n00b. When I look at the model in your signature then I see you are pretty professional.

But...I am not sure. Who cares lets do it. First time to battle a female member. I feel honored.

no specifices...maybe you want to set up some specific rules?

Well, I do modeling and texturing for a startup game company and its my first industry-related job other than being a game tester so I still feel noobish ;P

I wanted to narrow things down a bit like maybe what type of fanatasy char or maybe any sort specific fantasy theme to base our stuff off of. i was thinking maybe we could do More cartoony looking fantasy chars and boil it down to the char being a biped or something to that degree.
