Wow! Well done Rangiz!! I chose you as the winner because your scene checks all the boxes: Aesthetics, Story telling and Impact. The details in the characters are phenomenal, from the texturing on the soldier, to the fur on the mouse. The lighting and composition are also spot on.
So congratulations Rangiz, you’ve won: $250 cash + any item from the blender e-shop + $250 to a charity of your choice + a permanent spot in the Winners Hall of Fame :) Well earned.
A big thank you to everyone who entered into this year’s Christmas competition!
Unfortunately I don’t have time to go through each entry and explain why they didn’t win. But if you’d like feedback, post your image in the comments below and I’m sure the community will gladly give you some pointers.
So that’s all from me… Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! See you all in 2013 ;)
