    Arrow Action Hero Contest: The Winners

    Banner

    The results are in!

    175 people entered the Action Hero Contest and the results are fantastic!

    After two months of effort by the community, our judging panel narrowed the list down to ten finalists.

    The criteria that were used by the judges were:
    Success in portraying the contest theme of a super hero or villain in a dramatic pose worthy of a comic book cover.
    Quality of the sculpting and accuracy of the finished pose.
    Displayed ZBrush skill, especially with TransPose.
    Community Participation within the artist's own thread as well as in the form of encouragement and advice for others.
    All ten finalists were guaranteed to receive prizes. The big question still remained, however: Who would prove to be the big overall winners? For that, we turned to the community with a week of voting here at ZBrushCentral. That ended on Saturday, and we have tallied the results.

    Now it's time to reveal the winners. Congratulations!

    Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we post detailed "making of" articles for each of the top five winners. We have also reopened the Action Hero contest forum so that members can once again discuss each thread.

    We at Pixologic would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the contest. While only a limited number of prizes were possible, we believe that everyone who joined in was a winner. It has been a great pleasure to see the overwhelming enthusiasm on everyone's parts, and all the comments about how you've learned a lot just by participating. Way to go!

    We'd also like to thank our super sponsors for their generous support in donating over $12,000 in prizes for this contest: Axiotron, NextEngine, Offload Studios, Wacom, 3D World, the Gnomon Workshop and Ballistic Publishing.

    Congrats Cmof. You're the man!

    it's nice to see food get some kind of recognition but it still doesn't make up for the injustice given to his amazing work.

    Congrats Chris, Dr. Root rocked from day 1. Also congrats to Martin, Adrien, Yong, Furio, and all the finalists and entrants. You've all inspired me over these last two months, and I made a lot of new friends. I was proud to be in this contest with you and look forward to seeing more of your awesome sculpts in the future. Thanks to Zbrush Central community, aurick, the judges, and the sponsors for this incredible contest, it's been one of the best art experiences of my life..

    Congrats to all the winners! The only predictions I was close on was Dr Root, and that they might give Furio honorable mention, which he more than deserved for his Gra 'Nox. I was totally wrong on who the other top finishers would be. But, hey, at one time I even thought Gra 'Nox might take it all. So what do I know? All great anyway. Congrats again guys!
