Are you up to the challenge?

By Terminatrix 6 years ago
Welcome to FPSB's Team Fortress 2 skinning contest!

While the default TF2 sniper rifle skin is nice, vanilla ice cream is also nice, but chocolate coated strawberry ice cream with sprinkles is better and we think there are skinners out there with an uber charge of creativity ready to lift the sniper rifle to new heights - are you this skinner?

Here are the rules:

Entrants for this contest must design a replacement for the Sniper's sniper rifle in TF2. The replacement can be a recolor, reskin, or a skin on a new custom model. Entries for this contest must be submitted in the Skins > TF2 > Sniper Rifle Skin Contest category in order to be considered for the prize. One entry per person please. The judges for this contest may not participate.

Irresistible prize package:

The prize for first place in this contest will be $50 cash, an FPSB keyring and sticker pack, and a front page feature of your skin.

Important contest information:

The contest will be open for one month from the submission date of this thread. When the contest submission period has expired, the entries will be judged on craftsmanship, detail, technical ability, and creativity by our three judges. The judges favorites will then be passed on to you, the public, for final voting.

Meet the judges:

Kimono-

A multi-talented artist, Kimono's skills include texturing, compiling, and modelling. His membership here dates back more than three years.

Teh Snake-

A skinner and member of over two years, his talents include modelling, compiling, and texture work.

BlackHoleSon-

The junior member of this judging panel, he's been a member for over one year. He is an experienced skinner and texture artist.

Good luck to all those who choose to participate in this competition.

    Despite the fact that I probably have a less-than-slim chance of winning, I might enter this just for the hell of it.

    Pretty Much Amazing

    Please read the rules- "recolor, reskin, or a new custom model".

    Why no prize for second or third? If there isn't one, once someone like millenia enters, everyone will give up.

    Prizes feel a little low for such a task at hand. I will donate 2,000 for the cause. Put me up as a sponsor please.

    The prize that everyone should be shooting for is the one listed in the thread, not the points.

    Fair enough. That prize is pretty epic.
