    my girlfriends only plays grand turismo with me, she can;t stand games with to bright colors and flashing things, overloads her head or something, to many inputs. kind of rules out all nintendo games, so no mariokart I could beat her in, as she whoops my ass in gran turismo rally these days ... and to think I though her how to drive :(

    Alllright elfworks great job. Too bad you are the only entry so far. Next comp I'll start with a very easy model.
    But really great texture there elfworks.

    Ok tomorrow evening GMT is the deadline (so probably around 6pm for most of you guys)

    In some of the later contests I might throw my hand in, but for now I cant seem to texture TF2 style for the life of me so I need more practice.

    Down to the wire...

    Heh, she found me! (And, I've been lucky to keep her around! :) )

    Thanks! Having a good model to start with made it easy.

    I appreciate all the compliments. I didn't expect such a positive response.

    I do look forward to seeing other people's submissions! It'd be great to see how other people interpret the same object. (If it would level the playing field, I'd be glad to upload the greyscale Occlusion map for others to use.)

    We've all got to start somewhere. I can't count the number of times I chickened out on doing something - only to regret my decision later.

    So, keep those submissions coming!


    And, if you think this contest is intimidating, just look at some of the WIP threads. (This guy just went crazy.)

    Congrats to Elfworks. And thank you for your entry.

    I hope you stick around for the easier texture comp that starts tomorrow elfworks, I liked this texture and I'd like to see more from you.

    Also guys, you kind of pissed me off with this. You begged me to create this model for you, and you ALL would make a skin for it. Now Elfworks is the only man who actually did it. Not cool at all.

    And admins, please make the thing under our sigs "competitions won" reality. As promised.

    I definitely plan to do more work on TF2 maps. In case you didn't notice, there's a big purple Oil Derrick in the background of some of my images.

    You can expect a flood of texturing questions in the next few days. I've got it 95% figured out, but there's a couple of things I'm missing in the process. :)



    "Oh, snap!"

    And here I thought I was being snarky by goading the other non-entries. I hope they consider themselves properly chastened! :)

    "The beatings will continue until the attitude improves!" :)

    My only suggestion is that 'wins' be limited to contests that have more than one entry! (You should only have a winner if there's a contest. It's not like we're voting for the president of Zimbabwe ... :) )
