You are challenged to flaunt your Autodesk® Mudbox® skills by sculpting and painting the ultimate armed and dangerous character.
Whether it be a cowboy with a six shooter, a pirate brandishing a cutlass, a damsel with dynamite, a giant killer bee with stinger missiles, or maybe your mom with a rolling pin. It does not have to be full of violence and gore, non-violent entries are encouraged (be different!), perhaps a clown with a cream pie, a lawyer with a writ, or the dreaded dentist with a drill. Get creative. Whoever, or whatever it is, the character must have some kind of threatening item, and posed in a way that suggests nobody should mess with them.
The character can be a man, woman, alien, elf, monster, an attorney, or anything you want. Also the style is up to you: comic, photorealistic, manga, etc. Most importantly, the character should be posed and painted. No T-posed nor flat-shaded models will be considered by the judges.
This is a Mudbox challenge, so you must use Mudbox to sculpt and detail your character's mesh, and use Mudbox's painting features to texture your character. You may use any software you like to create the base mesh, and any 2D software (ex: Adobe Photoshop) for finishing touches and backgrounds. Please disclose in your work-in-progress uploads what software you are using for each step!
If you don't have Mudbox, you can download a special FREE trial that will not expire until the end of the event! To activate the special FREE trial, use the serial numbers here. Never used Mudbox before? What better opportunity than an international competition with superstar judges and thousands of eyes on your work to master this masterpiece technology.
