Summer Challenge Winners!
Congrats and thank you to all who participated in the summer challenge! There were a lot of great entries and it was tough narrowing it down to a top 3 let alone a winner. 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

Funky Bunnies



Congrats! Great concept, great modeling, great textures, and a great character! Send me your mailing info and I'll get your signed book in the mail!


2nd Place

Legolas_hv



Gotta love ninjas! Great modeling and lighting! Love the pose and the expression in the eyes!


3rd Place

Jay



Very cool Pirates of the Carribean inspired bust!

Congrats again everyone! The new challenge is now available!

Congrats to the winners!


I just had an idea that when someone won a challenge they get the badges added to their profile, or under their avatar. Does anyone else agree? Also, would this be possible?

Gratz guys and funky first of course.

Really great entries from all, and I think the top 3 just raised the bar for the next challenge... Brrrrrrr.

I am really glad you defended Ninja camp Legolas.
Arrrr... Shiver me shurikens.

Congrats FunkyBunnies! I thought it would come down between you and Jay, I would have never thought Jay would have gotten 3rd. Anyway, congrats for a great entry!

I also want to say, congrats to Legolas-hv for earning 2nd!
