Yup, I'm participating too.. I don't know much about modeling but I'm learning as I go along. I'm making weapons/items for the sniper... obviously. Currently making my double barreled, bolt action sniper rifle (yes, they exist) I used the original rifle as a reference, but every single polygon was created by me! And so far I have a hat done!

I suck at naming, and also coming up with stats.. I just don't have that kind of imagination Luckily that isn't a requirement in the actual contest. I record and stream my modeling sessions via livestream. Mostly for my own sake but you are welcome to watch! They should be available in the on-demand library. http://www.livestream.com/ravidge (warning: the 2 most recent ones have terrible audio! my bad) Any suggestions are welcome. I'm a noob modeler and take any advice you can give.
