Default AC3D Winter Model-A-thon

I figured it'll be fun to have a friendly year end competition were we recognize and encourage the great artwork being done by AC3d Modelers.

The competition is simply you submitt (post) pictures of works done in AC3d and everyone can vote on a winner. The winners get's a virtual trophy made in AC3d. If we have a good competition maybe we could have them quarterly and Andy possible could set up a awards page listing the winners and their work. 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place and 4th and 5th place runner ups.

Rules
1. AC3d must be used as a primary modeler although use in some other program is allowed but mentioned. Example Pov-ray

2. Do not download and modify a model from the web that's stealing someonne else's work, although If you create a model from a tutorial to use that's fine.

3. All entries must be posted by December 19 with the awards cermony taking place December 22nd. (Dates are Subject to change) Let's keep things friendly and encouraging.
Although not necessary can you please post how long you've ben a 3d modeler and how long you've used AC3d.


Last over 190 people alone have registered on the forums this does not include all AC3d users though with that number of people even if 1/4 of you submitted we could have a huge fun and friendly turn out. One great thing about modeling is Networking, this is where you get acknowledgement of your work, contructive critism and tips and hints on better workflow. And you never know someone may see your work and want to hire you.

Sounds pretty cool. Is Andy a part of this or are you doing this all on your own?
As well, I guess I should of held off on some of my pics. Ah well, I could always create sometin else.

BTW, I don't know how many of you ever check the "Pov-Ray for newbies" section, but I've just created a smoke effect and I wrote a how-to on how to do it toward the bottom of the tut. It's not perfect, but you can play with the settings to get it the way you want. I've left notes by some of the settings to let you know what they're for.

Hi cowboy

As a hobbyist game developer, and I use AC3D to develop level and model info for my personal game engine. Unfortunately, I'm in full-on development mode in my spare time, so haven't hit the point where I'm doing a lot of modeling/mapping (just enough for test purposes). However, for the record, I'd definitely be interested in getting into this in the future.

Hope you have a great turnout!

BTW, if this catches on, maybe Andy could get hold of some AC3D merchandise (cups and t-shirts) as prizes. Probably cost more to ship to some customers than the product is worth, since he's pretty much all over the globe, but it still *seems* like a good idea...
