Thank you guys for your comments! Quite honestly it makes me feel a little weird with people making predictions but I'll take it as a good thing
If I was a betting man, Sklaventreiber over at Simply Max with his Akuma from Street Fighter model would be my pick to win. His model was the most complete and well textured of the whole lot (in my opinion) with color, specular, and normal maps all wrapped around only 5000 or so polys! My only real crit would be that he didn't deviate too much from the original character design but the end result is spectacular.
As long as this next contest tickles my fancy I'm in for another go!
Utpal- Thanks for your vote, buddy, but the mods are the jury
