Character Modding - A Contest for GameBanana

Create or Edit a character for any PC game.

Contest has ended.

Character Modding

This time round we want to really push you guys to test your skills to the limit! Our previous contests have all revolved around creating a weapon replacement, this time we want you guys to mod an in-game character! Since it is a bit different from usual we are going to give you DOUBLE the normal time limit allowing plenty of time to learn new skills (see below) or work as a team. I'll also outline some frequently asked questions and rules below. 1. This contest covers both player models, non-player characters (NPC's) as well as any other enemy/creature featured in a PC game! 2. You can choose to either create a brand new character or edit an existing one. 3. The contest covers all levels of modding, from basic retextures right through to custom models. 4. The submission can be for ANY PC game or mod and can be as realistic or as cray as you like! 5. You CAN use existing assets such as models, animations, rigs, textures, etc on condition that you have permission from the original author/developer and that it does not violate our porting rules. 6. You must state which game it is for in the submission profile.

IMPORTANT: Entries will be judged in two categories! Best custom model and best default model! As usual submissions will be judged by our experts based on the following criteria. - Technical ability required to create the submission. - Use of custom content (textures / models / animations / sounds etc) - Overall aesthetics, quality and completion. Modding a character give you load of potential possibilities, remember that you can add or edit the following. - Custom Models - Custom Textures - Custom UV / light / normal maps - Custom Animations - Custom Sounds / Voice Acting Below are some useful resources such as base models and tutorials!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but all the models are custom made (not default models) which would mean 3 prizes. I guess you could technically say my model is a reskin of the default one.
