    Thanks everyone and good luck to the other top 10 entrees. Lots of hard work from everyone during those 8 weeks.

    I think I've just about chewed the end off my wacom pen....

    Hmm. strange! I do not suppose that you will not be among the winners!
    yours, and another work, in my opinion should have been there 100%. and proved that it is not.

    KrackenCMT,

    Your entry displayed the best polish and talent, in my opinion. You deserved first. I think we've all been robbed. Now we won't recieve a kick-ass skin and tattoo tutorial.

    You still deserve all respect and appreciation for submitting an entry that will inspire others (like myself) to work harder and strive for a result that's truly heroic.

    No matter what the official result say, this entry reigns supreme. Please render him in VRay or Mental Ray. Then we'll see what the community has to say for themselves.

    Undiminished brilliance.

    Hey Kraken, your sculpt is really awesome and the details and pose are fantastic. I think perhaps the reason you didn't hit the top of the contest is more of a texturing and rendering issue than your sculpt. Seems like your paint job was a little bit rushed and didn't exhibit the same level of polish as some of the other entries, and the lighting wasn't very dramatic compared to say Hedgehog or Overwatch. Another thing that might have hurt your chances is that the top 4 are all classic comic book superhero designs more or less. To me Nerve seems more like a figure from asian mythology than Spider-Man. These are just some honest observations, I hope I didn't offend you, I have enormous respect for your talent and skill in zbrush. Good luck in the future, I'm a fan.

    Ah I love the big fella. Amazing, amazing sculpt Kraken, I hope you get him 3d printed because he deserves to exist in the real world in classic bronze. Powerful work my friend.

    LeXuSMalus, thanks! But you know, that's why art and subjectivity are synonymous.

    jarlaxle00, thanks! Yep, I did in fact rush the painting and rendering a bit at the end. I certainly placed more importance on the sculpting and then ended up only having a day or two left to paint and render. I even thought about entering him untextured so the sculpting would be easier to judge since texturing was optional. But, it's over now and I'm not going to dwell on it or speculate about it. I've got a few new contacts because of the contest. So it's all good.

    skullbeast, thanks my man!

    ravioli_rancher, thanks for the boost, man. Sure, I'm a little bummed, but I'm a big boy. I'll get over it. I'll definitely finish Nerve off in the way that he deserves. And who says there's no skin or tattoo tutorial coming?....

    JP, thanks buddy! Yeah, I'd love to have him printed, but there's it's not likely because I can't afford something like that. Maybe in the future....
