For this challenge entrants were asked to create a 3D model of one of their favorite Flash Gordon characters, based on concept designs created by one of our Rookies, Giuseppe Di Stasio.

There were two categories High Resolution Sculpt and Real-time Model.

I was so impressed with the overall quality of these entries. Seeing my concepts being used for this challenge was such an awesome experience Thank you!
