Super Villain Challenge
Super Villain Challenge

Let's get back to doing some character-based challenges and let's do Super Villains! You can make an existing character! If you can be creative and make a new one or modify an existing one in some way, that'd be great! Make up a name, powers, look, costume, and origin story and let's see those creative juices flow! Is your villain an evil demigod from another world? or simply a misunderstood mutant that has to rely on crime to survive? Maybe you want to make an evil version of Superman? Go for it!

A couple guides:

1) Texturing is not required... but encouraged.

2) You can be super-duper-high-res or do low-poly game models... your choice!

3) Name your threads something like Super Villain Challenge: Evil Guy (challenge name: your villain)

4) Any 3D or 2D program can be used.

Feel free to ask any questions in this thread. There's no prize yet, but if that changes, I'll let you know. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Deadline Noon August 17th (USA Pacific Time)!

Excellent... I think I'll join this one and hopefully finish off something for a true entry. I'm a bit dubious about my organic modelling skills though...

Great!
I've not done any organic modeling yet, so this'll be a good chance to get onto doing some, and I've got a few ideas of what I'll do flying around my head already!
looking forward to it!

i would think it would go like this...

if there's a prize then only mike will have a say, or a selected group of people can vote (given the reasons that mike said last time about voting when there is a prize)
otherwise everyone can vote

if we vote i say we should get 3 votes each to use on anyone other than ourselves...

If there is prize, there must be judges. Judges who know what they do . The voting system by members is not so good. Because we all can build multy accounts.

I'm thinking of joining this one, but not decide yet.

This sounds like fun. While I don't think I'll place I'm definitely in. The challenge arena looks like a great place to learn/hone my skills in maya!

Don't think so Sokol, Mike put in his specifications post at the top that it could be anything from a Demigod to a Mutant, so as long as it's a Super Villain it should be fine I'd think.
