Default Sept/Oct Challenge Winners!

Congrats and thank you to all who participated in the challenge! Environment challenges usually have a pretty weak turnout, so it was great to see as many entries as we had finish and get submitted! So fantastic job to all of you! I hope those of you who are reading this might be inspired to try joining in on our newest challenge happening right now in the Challenge Forum!

Without further ado...

Winners!
-----------


1st Place

bendingiscool



Congrats! Very nice details and modeling! Nice camera angle as well. Send me your mailing info and I'll get your signed book in the mail!


2nd Place

mastone



Love the concept and very well done modeling and scene. The lighting and texture work kind of made the final image a bit muddy looking and a little tough to see all the details, but definitely a great effort!


3rd Place

mirek03



I definitely dig underwater ruins and while the lighting isn't probably very accurate and the texture work is mostly hidden, I do love the composition and the work done on setting a mood. Very cool!

Congrats again everyone! The new Winter Challenge is now available!

I don't know about that, it's really hard to tell. It kinda looks like SimplyMaya ( on my monitor ), but it could also spell something else. Mabe bendingiscool could chime in on that.

lol, ya it says SimplyMaya, I was gonna have some other maya related stuff, but I found an awesome sign online that I had to have in there (the one on the left side). Ya this is my first challenge, haven't had time to get in on earlier challenges due to uni work. Am going to enter this winter challenge due to the extended deadline, I should be able to fit it around my uni stuff, gotta start revising for a MEL Scripting exam soon though Ahh!

Chris
