Congradulations to the winners and great job to everyone who entered!

@Mastone: I appreciate the constructive critisizm. I've dabbled with getting into modeling way back in 2004 but it never took and so I stopped. Finally I came to the conclusion that although I might not make it a career I want to be great at this. So around 2009 I picked up Maya (it was the one my friend introduced me to) and have been pushing to learn all I can.

OMG!!! I actually cant believe I won!!
I honestly thought that stwert had this one.
Congrats to tweetytunes and Stwert
Thanks guys......drinks on me tonight!

@mastone: I understand what your saying. I repect your opinion but I do think you are being a bit unfair. I did indeed follow criteria.
"...I would like to see a new take or look of a game character of your choice that is already out there, you can style it/make it into whatever you like...."
I feel, I did exactly that.......and i did made it clear what I was planning to do in my thread. I even provided concept sketches on the final look of the characters before I even touched Maya. Even you yourself you had no issues. why didnt you voiced your concern at that initial stage?
Why wait till after the results?

I think its because of an overall standard not just yours mate - I don`t think its a personal attack.


While I see many points in your post Mastone (I myself have felt in the past some rules were not followed, Steam-punk and Virtual city challenges are two that stick in my head), what Jay said were examples of idea`s of re-design.

Take transformers - OP is still 1) Leader (or ends up as it) 2) Red/Blue mix in color 3) Becomes a form of truck. Although there have been many different takes on that character now - in the end just a new costume. And it is there in the first line of the quote you used from Jay "I would like to see a new take or look of a game character of your choice that is already out there.

I thought Stwert`s won because he got 2 characters fused together and got a really cool final image. Although Rocky put a lot into his final image - I thought (like you) that it was just a change of cloths for the characters and not that cool as a re-design, but the work was spot on (really nice texture work and setup for final character), so for me Stwert came on top.

Chirone did put a lot of thought into changing the concept of his idea and did put a lot of thought into his idea and entered a entry he should be very proud off. I am surprised we did not see any sex-changed ideas as that has been talked about a lot on the different threads. But I think many of us saw the words "New Look" and went a different way to how you saw it, but it was apart of the rules.

There was many good ideas this month - just wished some more work was done on some entries, myself included and most of all - it was fun, with lots of support from everyone - which makes us all winners in the end - arrrrrrrr group hug.

Thankfully the next one has little rules and a lovly prize - so lets all get cracking.....

tweety; so modest mate....love it.

The judging is difficult on these things for sure.

and if I may. With regards to these challenges, the results are what they are and as the judges see fit at that time. It a competition. As with every forum we cant please every single person, but we do like to think we cater for most abilties and give a fair trial to those in the challenges.

nuff said on the matter.

next challenge is up so get in there!!!

Jay

Congratulations on all who finished and especially to Rocky I thought Tweety was going to edge this one though a few weeks ago, although i never saw final entries until now.

Gutted I didnt have time to finish yet another comp. Hopefully the next 1 I can.

Just a few short words and then I think it's best to leave it be, okay?
As Tweety rightly quessed it isn't personal( to anyone, judges and participants alike) and as an artpiece yours was the best;lighting staging and final composition and design were supreme ( not to say the amount of work you put in), when compared to the rest, but it didn't feel like a redesign ( at least not me )which has nothing to do with the quality of work you have displayed.
It's like holding a modeling competition and in the end being judged based on a final render

I haven't questioned it because I only looked at the challenge outline on friday when I picked my own project up again and because of time constraints focussed on the main criteria( or my interpretation of them).

But again just leave this be
