Our July Competition asked you to showcase one of your models in the amazing new v1.01 release of 8MonkeyLabs' Marmoset Toolbag. We had an amazing selection of entries to choose from so without much further ado, let prize-giving commence!
After gathering all of the entries together it took both myself, the 8MonkeyLabs team and the Tuts+ management to come to a final decision, and it was a very close call between several finalists - we were all amazed at the quality of the work shown! However there were 3 licenses to give away so we had to eventually decide on 3 winners.
And they are, in no particular order :
Winner 1 - Konrad Beerbaum
Konrad's FlakCannon model, with it's HDR reflections, bump mapping and excellent overall texture work caught our eye straight away. Great work Konrad!
Winner 2 - Matt Dirks
Matt's cell-shaded mercenary character certainly stood out from the other entries, showing another side to Marmoset Toolbag that all of the judges loved. Plus the pose is just awesome...
Winner 3 - Reggie Santiago
Reggie's detailed WoW-esque wagon model showed yet another way that Marmoset Toolbag can be used to display your final models in your portfolio (and we especially loved the lighting on this one!)
Honourable Mention - Nick Sukharichev
Nick's presentation of his Ogre character model has earned him this honourable mention! I particularly loved how the Ogre's mace shifts slightly out of focus as it passes the camera - an awesome touch!
So congratulations to our winners, and well done to everyone who entered! I know it's a little clichéd but it really was very difficult to narrow it down to the three eventual winners. I also want to thank the 8MonkeyLabs team for supplying the great prizes and for their support in the comments.
I can't wait for our next competition, but in the meantime there are rumours of an exciting giveaway coming very soon...
