Hey, this topic is great! I want to do Hades. Or how about Mercury. I dunno. Hades is probably the one I want to do the most. Heh

I don't know which challenge to join though? I feel as if I am still a newbie, but I don't want to join in with others who have just started to learn the software. That wouldn't be fair in my opinion. Should I go into the normal challenge then? Can someone give me some help as to the criteria that meets each group? Or can a mod suggest which one I should go into?

This challenge should rock!

that is how you feel, that is how you enter. it is up to you. if after the challenge you think it was too easy, as the other newbies were no match at all, enter next time normal. and dont worry the others did not just start the software either ...

Hey englar, if you enter as Noobie, that means that you will not get any award, but the "noobie competition winner" badge. Which is cool too . If you enter as Normal, you will be up against more experienced maya users, but you will be rewarded with a "Competition winner" badge, and points .

Right, Just letting you all know that I am happy to spend a good ammount of time judging a picking winners, just the final render has to be in by the last day of this month. I will post the winner the following day, or at night .. i am 8 hours behind the UK in general.. so thats almost morning time for a lot of you anyways . Make sure you say in your final render....

FINAL RENDER.

I dont care what size your final render is rendered at, just make sure its not too ridicously large.. and that its 1 file .
