Well no one has yet started this thread, and nobody has posted more WIPs, maybe this will motivate you dudes to get more entries

Voting starts 5th February as soon as I announce it on that day, or when Big Add or BenDstraw does

Well, you managed to make an armored core model and I haven't... (I'm an armored core fan! Looking forward to play AC4 in PS3) That's why i'm really amazed!!! I like the details and how the shine turns out btw

**********CLOSED****************

No more entries dudes, we only have Dark Coder and Ooga Booga, who do people think has made the biggest improvement, begin voting NOW, come thursday, no more votes.

I love how the details have been made to perfect DC's tank, the detail certainly is an improvement, I love the remakes of the tracks. To be honest, I doubt I will find myself getting that much into detail, which is a strength I don't have

And I love how Ooga's mech modelling has improved, instead of a basic(ish) box mech with some detials, he has managed to make a more hi tech mech this time that looks so much more impressive.

Well I feel ooga should get my vote, he certianly has made such a good improvement on the type of model, and considering the first 'Character contest' he made a simple calvin scene, and now he has improved, obviously that hasn't pointed my vote towards him, but its something worth congradulating him about.

I'll have to go with Ooga Booga, as his shows the most improvement.

But both models are awesome, and for the record, I think the tank is a cooler design overall.

Ooga Booga, there so differences between the orginal and the improved version. And there some great details on it. But DarkCoder too was great. At a time, I tought it was real plastic.

O_O It's a 1-on-1 competition... Cool!

Since both are great, I vote for Dark Coder...

Sorry, Ooga booga, but the "recent" and "improved" models are both great, there are no major differences, and this comp is meant for "improvements"...
Although both your works are great! Keep it up!

I hate to do this to Dark Coder. His model is simply amazing, even compared to Ooga's. But since Ooga's shows the biggest improvement(IMO), he's gonna get my vote. Congrats! Extremely good entries, both of you.

Thanks everyone who voted for me
Really good job dark coder i was thinking you were gonna win.

Sorry bizar guy, but the next compo is a Low Poly Spaceship compo. Entries will be judged on poly count versus quality. You must provide a download for the model in some kind of universal format so that the poly count can be confirmed. (.3ds, .x, .obj, and so on) For the picture of it, don't make a complex scene, just render it on a plane or something simple as this contest isn't focused on the final render. Feel free to use normal maps and such and do fancy tricks with the textures, but don't use internal effects like a fire effect for an engine, make a texture for it like it is done for real games.

Whoo that was a long description. I'll give 10 days for the contest and extend it if we don't have enough entries. Lets try to have more than 2 entries this time!
