Normally I don't bother with 3D competitions because I don't have the time, but 6 weeks ago BlenderGuru.com had one that I really wanted to enter. The theme was CHARACTERS. The theme alone wasn't enough. No, I had an idea that I was actually excited about and I wanted to do it before anybody else thought about it.
Competition ends today.
I might finish it, but since it has no possibility for monetary gain nor BlendShow development, chances seem slim.
