Scared Silly Contest Winners (voting results)


The results are in!

After over a month of hard work by dozens of talented artists followed by a week of voting, we have the final results for ZBrushCentral’s first official contest!

For those of you just joining us, the objective of this contest was to create an image using primarily ZBrush that captures the “Scared Silly” theme. In other words, these images had to show a Halloween image, but with a humorous twist.

Voting for the finished entries (click here to view all entries) was done by the ZBrushCentral member base using the following criteria:

  1. Success in portraying the contest theme.
  2. Quality of the finished artwork.
  3. Displayed ZBrush skill in the areas of modeling, texturing, painting and/or rendering.
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 these remarkable works of art. We’re also reopening the Scared Silly 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 three prize winners 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 Wacom for sponsoring this contest through their generous donation of the grand prize Cintiq.

Congratulations to everyone! This was a wonderful contest that brought out some truly talented work. :wink:

Congratulations to everyone who took part. It’s kind of sad there had to winners (though I doubt the winners agree with me :wink: ) as all the entries were brilliant. I had to close my eyes when I voted. :smiley:

Congrats to all! I also voted randomly. Anyone who got one vote they weren’t expecting, you’ll know that was me :slight_smile:

Congrats to the winners!

BIG THUMBS UP!! :+1: :+1:

The big winners … are all of us at ZBC who saw the hard work of all artist come to fruition!! Amazing results where attained. 1st and 2nd prize winners where definitely going to be up in the top 3. I have to say I’m glad that the grand prize Winner Alex Velasquez listened to some of us here at zbc and finished what he had started, imaged turned out top notch!!

However… I am somewhat surprised at some images that where allowed into the voting stage. Not because of the quality of art but in relation to rules criteria!! In the end they didn’t seem to matter much. Hopefully future events will be done different by those voting and pixologic team to maintain such criteria. Sadly it had to be said… :o

Congratulation to the winner!!! Wonderful jobs!

But plase, someone can answer me about one things?

“gallery of all the entries” is not really of ALL the entries. I am sure of this becouse you cannot find my entries in this list.

Maybe someone made a preselection?

Anyway a big thumbs up to all competitor! :+1: :+1:

Congratulations to the winners! Those images have been added to my personal favs folder (which is getting rather huge these days).

Enjoy that Cintique and the other wacom tablets!

Hopefully I’ll have time to work on an entry next contest! (whenever that may be)


…revival! :wink:

Congratulations to the victors!!!
I just knew ol’ Frankie had taken the win :eek:
…but who would get show and place? Now we know!

Congrats, sasquatchpoacher…you should have had the grand prize. You did your entire image in ZBrush, which I think is great. I’m not sure what “majority” of work in ZBrush means, but I guess if you do at least one thing, it counts. I really thought you had it in the bag.

Nice job, stumpf! I love your work, as always. I look forward to seeing your step by steps. Maybe get some insight into your genius.
