Default Tournament#1 - Sign Up - 8 person

Hey, this will be an 8 person tournament! So saying that it will have 3 rounds, at 1 week a piece. What you have to model is the following

Round 1:
Model a small creature with small limbs and just the creature with no accessories, naked.(like a critter of some sort)
Style: Open (Polys, Subd's, nurbs)
Textures: Optional (will help)
Length: 7 days

Round 2:
Model accessories for your critter (Harness, armor, built on guns etc.)
Style: Open (Polys, Subd's, Nurbs)
Textures: Yes
Length: 7 days

Round 3:
Model an enviroment for your critter (Sewers, Jungle, Cave etc.)
Style: Open (Polys, Subd's, nurbs)
Textures: Yes
Length: 7 days

Now, the first 8 people to post and say "I will compete in tournament#1" (or along those lines) will be the competators. If within 2 weeks there are not 8 people aquired yet, then this tournament will be cancelled or redesigned. Hope theres a lot of competators .

BTW, please read the tournament rules that are in the battle arena forum before entering. Thankyou .

Thats the thing, that is up to you , but if you mean.. can i go and find a refrence that i did not do.. SURE . Its the model that i care about. Anyways, remember braam's creature for the futuristic model comp.. thats kinda what i mean, or something like a gremling if you want to go more organic, or just a furball.. its up to you, cute, organic, or a robotic creature . Thanks for joining you 2.. hopefully we will have more competators and this will actually take off .

Join when you still can, if you join now.. i will even throw in a free post :O. Lol, j/k.. lets just hope this takes off.. i think it could be fun .

Wonderful! Ok, so there is 4 so far, we could run a 4 person tournament, but 8 would be wonderful! Anyone that has already joined or see this, you can talk to others on the page if you want and try to get them to join . And for the competators so far, in 2 days if there are still not enough people, this tournament will start with 4 .

Well, if you guys dont mind (seeing i will probably get booted out first round anyways).. then i will join . So, I'd like to sign up! "why certainly M".. . Anyways, ok.. 2 more that we need. And to answer your question, no.. we cannot just have a competition with 5 or 6..as you need to figure out if it will work out to 1 person remaining. So, 2 could join (regular battle), 4, 8, 16, 36, 72, 144 . Ok, but yea, it works like that. It will make a lot more sence once i can get the ladder up and running , (as soon as the tournament starts).
