Mesh
How does the mesh look? How are its proportions, balance, and scale? How coherent is polygon distribution? Is there an overreliance on in-game SD meshes? Do the shapes complement the model's theme?/15

Skin
How good is the wrap? Are the textures appealing, or do they look blurry/stretched from the default game camera and portrait? Do the tones go well together? Is there sufficient contrast?/15

Animations
How natural, smooth, and appropriate are the animations? Do they have physical coherence? Do they have character/personality? How well are they executed? Does the model have enough animations to function properly?/15

Effects
Were the particle, ribbon, or mesh effects made in good measure? Do they contribute to the model? Are they impressive?/10

Integration
How well does the model work in-game? Does it feature the necessary attachments, footprints, sounds, and collisions? Are the attachments obscured? Is the model fully selectable? How well does the it fit in the game environment?/15

Creativity
How original is the general idea? How inventive is the execution? How creatively does the model interpret the contest theme?/20

Captain Morgan was quite impressive (mesh but especially animations), but simply too detailed for standard in-game usage.

Captain Bob was better about detail & pretty creative to boot (fat man model, cool armor, etc), but still a bit much for me personally.

Multi-Tier Hydra was not only perfect for the game, but also incredibly valuable as a utility rather than merely a showpiece. What it lacked in pure "creativity" (i.e. the Hydra heads being edited from the Tidal Guardian serpent model, rather than scratch-meshes like the other two (?)) it made up for in utility.
