How about we unofficially vote anyway

I like all the entrants, but in my opinion Jim's is the best.

My vote will go to Jim -- even if it is unofficial. Just wanted to get that out there .

Anyone else have their "unofficial" vote?

The top four in my mind went like this (of those that were submitted as final):

1. Schlitzy (Jim)

2. Gimpy (Drakkheim)

3. Hippie (thekamps)

4. Nerdy (Zaryin)


To be fair, I liked something about all of them and wish that everyone had been able to finish.

I agree totally here. It was a great experience. Can I vote for everybody instead?

If I had to choose it would be Jim and his Schlitzy.

Gimpy next.

But I really liked them all. Tons of personality here. Would love to see a poster with all the entrants together. Throw in Tardy into that poster as well!! Congrats to all who finished.

Shlitzy!

There were some very interesting characters, and if it was a "character design" contest then it might have been closer.
Since it was a "modeling" contest, I think that Jim has shown his complete mastery, above and beyond.

Frankly, I think that Jim is the finest modeler ever to use A:M!

Jim,
If A:M were to have an "oscar", then it ought to be called the "Talbot Award".
you could render one of your characters as a gold statuette, and make it a web graphic that future winners could display on their webpage. maybe a gold,silver,and bronze!
That would be a nice award!

Hey Will, that is one of the greatest ideas, haha. I really think Jim should do that.

You guys are making me blush.

I want to echo the sentiment that all the entries were very creative and full of personality. Everyone helped the others to do better and so everyone is a winner IMHO.

Jim

I just want you all to know that the 3 swedish bikini team members that Jim sent to my house did not sway my vote in any way. Woops, Inga and Olga said I better get back to the volleyball game!

Schlitzy is the best model hands down.

and competeing for a golden Talbot award would be as good as any prize.

My vote goes for Schlitzy as well. It's great to see what can really be done with the program and gee it didn't cost an arm and a leg for the program go figure It was wonderful to see all the encouragement and assistance everyone had for each other. These contests are a good idea I think a better game plan is in order for the next one.

Well, I'm not sure about naming an award after me, but I did render out Schlitzy as a gold statue. He looks pretty good! I think receiving a "Golden Schlitzy" sounds better than a "Golden Talbot".

That is an excellent gold Schlitzy!

Jim, it's like the Acadamy Awards (ie: The Talbot Awards) and an Oscar (ie: a Schlitzy).

Get used to it :P~
