Creatures Upload Competition Winners

Hi all!

Happy Holidays, and thanks for participating in our short competition. (Keep your eyes on this part of the site, because we're going to be running a few more of these mini-comps)

Three of our five judges have passed their judgement, and the results are as follows:

Our judge Bryan Wynia chose an entry by Nate Hallinan below:

Bryan said, "Nate's Anuran Warrior instantly caught my eye. He does a great job of describing the material of this frog like creature. All of the subtle little clothing elements help paint a vivid story for him. The frog like anatomy, realistic rendering, and subtle lens blur helps create a very believable creature."

Our judge Josh Herman selected Koen Cooperman 's piece Portia 581 , seen below:

Josh says, "Koen Koopman's entry is a beautiful piece of work. The inspiration is clear and maintains through the design, but doesn't end up as expected. I love the call outs that add more to the design, beyond what's seen in the excellent rendering. Oh, and I love those eyes! It's already in my favourites."

Martin Rezard chose John McGuire 's piece as his favourite.

Martin chose it because, "apart from the quality of the anatomy of the beast, and the relationship in the proportions of the rider and its mount,
I also like the fact that he seems to have created it specificaly for the challenge, with all the contraints and limitations attached to the process,
and even if it still is a work in progress, both the creature and the rider have a lot of character.
I am looking forward to seeing it evolve, .
great work.

Congratulations, Nate, Koen and John - you've all won a years' free CGSConnect Membership (giving you an ad-free CGPortfolio - both for you and those who view your work), a copy of The Essence Creatures and a CGTOD of your choice.
