Maya Modeling Challenge! January 21, 2009Posted by sfdm in : Announcements, Competition, Game , comments closed
We are challenging you to create a unique virtual model using Maya. It could be person, place or thing, so put your imagination to work! (Need inspiration? Check out some of Michael Ingrassia’s work)
Winners will be selected from two categories: amateur and professional. Finalists in each category will be chosen by YOU through a voting system. And don’t be sloppy! Judge Michael Ingrassia will be inspecting the finalists’ working files to make sure the job was done right.
Winners will receive a cash prize and their artwork featured in Computer Graphics World Magazine! (More info on the prizes coming soon)
The deadline to enter is March 31, 2009.
