    Default Go Yong!

    Yong, nice work buddy and thanks for the making of. Mantis Man was a really strong entry from the start of the contest right through the end, and no one was more help to the rest of the contestants than you. The most impressive thing about you was your tireless dedication; posting a wip update every single day as well as posting on the threads of ALL of the other entries. You inspired me and many others with your talent, and steadfast dedication. And you're a super cool dude to boot. You're the man Yong.

    Yeah, there is a lot great work done on this sculpture. I like it a lot. It's very creative. The color and material work really bring the sculpt to life. Plus, the pose is very dynamic. I like the other winner's sculpts as well, but this one should have made it much higher on this list.

    Hey, congrats on making the big-time, Solid! Can I call you Solid? It takes too much time to write out SolidSnakexxx.
    Besides, you're famous enough now where you only need a first name now like, say, Paris, Whitney, or the Donald.
    Congrats again on Mantis. (Even he dosen't need a last name anymore.)
