    Working on my artpass entry I have three simple requests that I was wondering if anyone is interested in.

    I'm really not picky at all on specifics of the models, if it looks like it fits in TF2 style it works.

    - An old fashioned sled (like this) If the runners had skins for both teams that would be awesome, although if not, just gray.

    - A snowman (basic snowman, like the one in cs_office, just a face and a scarf minimum [hat and arms optional])

    - A snowplow (like this EXCEPT WITHOUT THE TRUCK, i want to attach it to the hydro dump truck, so a gray or yellow skin please).

    If you can do any or all of these models, your work is very much appreciated, I suck at modeling :(.

    Also, these will be in my artpass entry, so you need to be willing to hand over the source files to valve in the case that I win.

    Thanks again

    I'm pretty sure all of your requests could be make with brushes/displacements. While I'm not sure how good the sled and plow would be, the snowman is easy: subdivide every face of a snow-textured cube, and use a custom overlay for the face. If you can't make your own textures, I could attempt to make a very simple one. The scarf could be a subdivided outside of a cylinder, close to the neck.

    EDIT: Made this in five minutes with the basic textures:

    Something I made for a map that is on hold for the contest, but I might want to finish and share it with you.

    Its obviously not done yet and I still have to texture it:

    woah that looks pretty sweet. But did you mean you made it for your map for this contest? Cuz I'd feel kinda bad about taking using your model for the same contest :/

    Oh and Seba, i made a place holder snowman out of displacements and it didn't look that great, but the overlay for the face was something i hadn't thought of, so i'll give it another try
