A big thank-you to Marieah and all the sponsors and congratulations to all the winners. I had never used shaders before and this contest spurred me to learn.

Well, that was the point… to help everyone stretch their ideas of the possible a bit, and try something new. smile

I was delighted that this contest ran again this year, and I was happy to help with the judging…. until I saw all the gorgeous renders! This was a very hard contest to judge. There were many, many excellent entries. Reading this thread has been a real treat. Thank you, everyone!

That’s unexpected!  I am thrilled about Lizabet and Dutchman ... especially since I’ve been feeling unmotivated for a few months now and overly critical of what I do. 

Lizabet was ever so much fun (I restyled her hair like a dozen times), though the Dutchman was a pain because of the angle.  I wanted something kinda ... dizzying, because he was hovering in the air, but then he was legless!

Thanks to Marieah, the sponsors, and the judges and congratulations to all who placed.

Woot!  It’s totally awesome that I actually won something!  But in consideration of the fact that I’d barely used shaders before and now use them in practically everything I do, I’d say the experience and knowledge gained is worth even more. 

And, for what it’s worth, just in the days since the contest I’ve picked up Mach Pack, Furify, Leatherize, the Totally Bazaar Bundle, DayJob Shaders and Pattern Magic 1, so as a promo for shaders, the contest totally worked with me.

(So… when’s that DS 4.5 Shader Mixer Tutorial coming out again?)

“And on the subject of bundles, exactly WHY does the M5 Pro Suite have a V5 DRESS and the Troll in it? Exactly what kind of “pro” IS M5?  Apparently one who likes to dress up in drag and go cruising down in the red light district of lower Middle Earth.”

Hearty congratulations to all the winners, and WOW thanks for picking one of mine as a winner too!
Thanks to all the generous sponsors, the judges and especially to Marieah for running this fun jamboree.
PS: I’ve PM’d you, Marieah, about a little prize confusion of mine - hope you can help me there smile

Probably not in March, but hopefully in April. smile (What—no quilts & calicoes? wink )

Just to let everyone know, I’m waiting until the end of the week to submit all the prize choices to Daz in one single email so they can add the choices to your Daz accounts. I won’t dribble the choices to them because, believe me, that would be a disaster. They are busy enough at Daz without my making a single job into 20 jobs.

So here’s hoping Canary’s new item is out by then. Otherwise, I can remove Canary winners from my list and she can privately supply you with the new product.

I don’t feel it would be quite fair to hold up everyone’s prizes in anticipation….

I agree, Marieah! And it’ll be a couple of weeks before my product is up, so I’ll send pics to “my” 2 winners tonight and they can decide if they want to wait - if they do, I’ll take care of getting it added to their accounts, if not, they can send their choices to you and be part of your big list.  I’ll email you and let you know how it all shakes out. smile

Thanks for the info about the deadline for prize picks - I’ll spend a little longer choosing now…
I’d be interested in seeing Canary3D’s new product pics too, please.
(And thanks for the PM Marieah - I read your original results post after midnight my time, so maybe my brain wasn’t fully in gear! Like I said in the PM, “WOW what a generous prize”!)

The clothing kitbash prize was so substantial we really wanted to encourage people to have a go at the prop kitbash as well, so piled some PA products into it.

Canary, that sounds good to me.
