And the winners are...
First Place: The Backpacker by @FlyingIllustration
“Lovely idea and backstory with very good technical execution, the various different animations created are really taking it to the next level!” - Phil (@saphires)
"Good execution and art direction. The character silhouette is innovative and the materials combine well with the overall surface detail. I love the map stuck into his vest, it adds story-telling and a small hint into his personality. Hat and frying pan looks great as well! " - Luis (@redy)
“Amazing across the board! Love it.” - Avtandil (@avic)
“I love the animation and the idea of using a rather slow creature to use his powers for speed.” - Alex (@dark_minaz)
Second Place: Jacob the meat hook by @zeyadibrahim000
“I like the setup, the artist definitely thought about presentation and character.” - Avtandil (@avic)
“Very nice presentation and I like the story even if it’s mostly just Gangs of New York but as mutants.” - Alex (@dark_minaz)
“This excels in technical execution and the background story is really great!” - Phil (@saphires)
Third Place: Octagal! by EonSculpts
“I think the tiny fishes are really a nice touch for quite the unique superhero.” - Alex (@dark_minaz)
“Love the colors! Her backstory is very rich alongside the character design. Bubbles as a superpower is great!” - Luis (@redy)
“The backstory, pose, and color scheme are perfect for this unique low poly superhero concept.” - Abby (@abbyec)
