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)


Congrats to everyone on amazing work! :raised_hands:
