Mini Challenges

I enjoy doing Mini Challenges, but they seem to have disappeared. So I'm going to put a weekly mini challenge together Starting on Sunday nights and going right on through to Saturday nights. If you like the idea of the challenge feel free to jump in. I've got an idea for this week to get things rolling, but would love input. Submit an idea here in this forum and we can use them for future challenges.

I'm going to try not to limit things to much so we can all be creative. An example would be:

Pencil
* Poly limit 30 tris
* 4 texture maps 128x128 (1 256x256) each Color, Bump/Normal, Spec, Diffuse
* Hardware render one light

that's just an example, the challenges will be more challenging items like weapons, characters, and environment assets.
No prizes, just bragging rights and even though the challenge is only a week long feel free to take more time just note the time it took you.

Also wondering if anyone is interested in battles, a one on one or team vs team challenges. Were the two opponents battle for the best Concept, Model, and Texture. One point each team with the most points wins. Your peers would be your judges.

might want to post this in the Game Art Forum. we decided that the game art forum gets more traffic and more people join the challenge [it's working to, we have had a good response to the UGAC - II].

isn't the MGAC still going on over there?

The MGAC seems to be dead... It's on Deryk who should have setup #43.
Looks like it was confused with the UGAC?

When it was started up, we just wanted quick simple things to do for people who weren't participating in other challenges. Ever since it was started, the MGAC has been in a battle of where it should be located on this forum as well as frequently being confused with the UGAC.

it seemed to stop when the UGAC was moved to the Game Art forum.

has anyone tried PM him and seeing if he knows to start it up?

Nobody has tried to PM him as far as I know. His last comments about it that I have seen were something along the line of him checking with the UGAC to see if he would start up the MGAC...

If there is no word from him, you want to start one to get it rolling again?
