  2. "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?

  17. Great news, the Contest has been extended based on contestants requesting more time. We've agreed to end the contest by one week. The new END DATE is MAY 4th @ 11:59PM PST If you have already submitted feel free to refine the entry and resubmit! Otherwise, we'll see you at the end of the contest! @Carlosa pictures are fine some users have sent objs and proof of ownership, not required. @Elizeusz the blog.mixamo.com will be showing them all after the contests ends.
  18. I think your getting caught up in the needless details. Keep to the poly count. Mesh organization is unimportant. We would like a texture sheet, an image with all the textures in one so we can see them all at once. If submitting the maps is easier just do that. 12DAYS remain!
  19. Yes 20k quads. Sorry for the delay we just got done pushing a large announcement.
  20. Moska, Last year's contest was voted on by the users and contestants. This year it's in house voting done by the creative team. Your not giving yourself a fair chance if you fail once and never try again.
  21. No one interested? $1000 cash prize is up for grabs!
