Here’s what the judges had to say about the winning entry:

“Nice texture and great use of a normal map to dramatically enhance the model without touching the base model.” - Geoffrey (@geoffreymarchal)

“I really liked the transformation of a sweet Shiba to this badass one. The tattoos, bandaids and fat wrinkled face really worked for me!” - Bart (@bartv)

“Props for taking something cute and fluffy and making it fleshy and gross! Seriously though, this is an imaginative concept well executed.” - Tom (@nebulousflynn)
