Dominance War!

Hey everyone, I know I haven't posted in a little while. I've been very busy as of late. Lots of school projects and I've also been doing a couple of contests online which I'm VERY excited about. The first one was the Steampunk Legends contest on CGSociety. I'll post some more about that later, but right now I'm taking part in Dominance War IV which is the big international game art competition. I learned about it last year and promised myself that I would participate this year, so here I am.

This year the competition consists of two 9 day mini challenges along with the larger character creation part. The first 9 day challenge was due yesterday and it was certainly a fun warmup.

You had to use a base mesh that was provided to make a General Portrait. Unfortunately I can't post the actual images on my blog here, at least not yet. Contests like these like the work you do to stay just on their site, so I'll post the links here. Please take a look and tell me what you think.

For more information on the competition itself please click the image at the top of this post. I'm very excited to take part in this competition and find it pushes my skills and is a great experience. I hope to take part in more competitions like this in the future, time permitting of course.
