The skills of our community never cease to amaze us and this doesn't only go to the experienced guys like Teh Snake, but even to JorisCeon who set out with a little knowledge of character modding and ended up with a model of himself! Last but not least we really liked the idea of the paper soldier and had there not been more outstanding submissions this one would reach the top 3 in a heart beat! and same goes for the Lance Kwailer, we loved this submission but there were a few things that quite bothered us like the beard looked quite cartoonish as opposed to the realistic rest of the model and also the material of the chest piece just didn't quite fit the rest of the body... But as I mentioned above, we would like to think of everyone as a winner here because everyone has achieved a lot in this contest. Thank you for participating and we hope to see you in our future contest! Check out ======== [GameBanana/CEVO CS:GO Mapping Contest 2014](http://gamebanana.com/contests/47)

    > **Posted by Skydash** > Congrats all! But how do I open those .xlsx files? Assuming you don't have Excel, Open Office or similar, you can download the files, then upload them to Google Drive for example. Or you can try to Google something like "XLS viewer" and see if you find any tools that suits you better.

    Wow amazing! I'm very surprised to see an all-out winner contest :) I was very enthousiastic when participating as I have been wanting to do character modelling for almost 3 years but always thought it was too difficult. Having worked on the first new paint gun skin of Aperture Tag (now cancelled as someone else is making a new paintgun that is more fitting to the idea and I'm simply there to make other models and exporting most of it) it helped me to understand the way skins work in a game and also helped me getting interested in the exporting-importing process of characters, which led me to work on a miniature me. Congratulations to everyone who participated, I'm honoured to be standing among the other 5 entrants who are undoubtly amazing at this aspect, I would never have guessed at the start of this contest to ever release something working xD And, lastly, what Teh Snake said is entirely true! I also wondered a few times in the past how the progression will be in the future of all GB members, and seeing this is undoubtly promising and exciting to experience ;)

    > **Posted by Teh Snake** >I must thank everyone who participated and finished their entries ! I think the point of the contest wasnt to find out the best ones around,but to inspire the other members to start doing more complicated tasks and learn new techniques to keep growing ! Said it all.

    Contest was very challenging. Allowed me to learn a whole lot, even though our entry wasn't all that impressive as Snake's, I felt very proud of having completed it with all the features and techniques we're not so used with. I really hope the community keep the character models comming, that sure was fun :) Congratz everyone.

    Congrats everybody ! Don't feel down if my mark is a bit lower than the other judges (usually by .x). I didn't really know if I had to keep my numbers round :L You did an awesome job guys !
