Thanks for giving partial infos.

On another forum "Also you are encouraged to create your own weapons as long as it adheres to the weapons class of your choosing: "

I won't participate since you can't put the weapon in another class hand, good luck to the other contestants :)

BeatKitano thanks for clarifying this better, So there isn't much reason to bother with generating our own weapons aside from aesthetics and design style cohesion. I was hoping to possibly do some kind of polearm or battle axe but I guess it's probably better to focus on getting the character work as polished as possible.

The reason we're asking you to stick with the weapon provided is because we're going to be release a huge weapons animation pack feature these 5 weapons. Realistically you could create a different weapon for the class but it wouldn't be able to be feature in our weapon demonstration. We're bring in some amazing weapon master to put on the capture suit and bring these weapons to life and some of the winning characters will be featured in this.

Carlosa, sellswords and mercenaries could be defined as humans. In fact we welcome humans.

"Dear contestants and watchers!

The Mixamo Fantasy War 3D Character Contest has come to a close and the winners have been chosen!

We were hard pressed to choose only three winners. In fact there was a lot of debating in the Mixamo office last week about who should take the title but through the democratic process of hand raising, we finally elected the winners:

Check out the updated contest page here: [

MIXAMO FANTASY 3D CHARACTER CREATION WINNERS] -- Don't forget to read more about it on our blog!

Those are some amazing entries right?! Wouldn't it be cool to run them through the Mixamo Auto-Rigger and start applying some of our monster, action or adventure motions? Want to try it out and post a video of the results? We would love to see your work in motion!

We're looking forward to launching our next contest in a few weeks, giving more to the community and inviting everyone to join us, so stay tuned!
