    Alright, I got 1 question though... Considering the first criterium already fulfilled, it will last until the end of the day (GMT) which we have 3 entries at least, or when the third entry is submitted the contest is closed and this is a 3-entry-contest now.
    Cos if it lasts until the end of the day, maybe those who still didn't finish can still give up on polishing it and upload their unfinished shit with rushed stuff and the contest will turn out quite better, with 4 or more entries.

    Then it would be:

    Deadline will end (no exceptions) when BOTH criteria are met
    1. Pre-set date (e.g. November 3rd) is met
    2. We have minimum of 3 completed entries at the end of the day (GMT)

    Hey I'm joining like I said previously, but I have a question. I am making an "organic tower" is that alright? But that doesnt mean a spear throwing troll with the walk anims removed BTW. It means a like a Ancient Protector.

    First WIP.
    DevilsTower.jpg

    Note that the grid is there to show how the tower will be placed on the ground.

    This is an early progress so I have more stuffs to do on this tower, such as...

    - Adding a demon in a similar method to this model, only difference is that the upcoming demon is organic and will attack by throwing magical stuffs (thus acting as a turret).
    - Adding various accessories to fill up with the emptyness of the tower.
    - Add team colour somewhere (I'll improvise, perhaps on the accessories and on the demon).

    I'm hoping someone will make a fun and creative mechanism to launch a projectile. Not just some orb on the top that shoots energybolts. Maybe a rocket platform, a trampoline-based tower, or a huge troll on the top of the tower with a baseball bat :D

    Stop. Wip time.

    UVWrapping this is going to take twice as long as it took to make the mesh lol.

    Animating it is going to take half the time. :D

    EDIT: Poly count is 4195 btw.

    Not really. I mean, while poly count does contribute to filesize, its nothing compared to what anims take up.

    The poly count is 4195. I didn't reach my goal of 5000....D;
