Well... the galleries are full of textured renders because if you take a look... not many entries consist of clay renders. Textured renders do not have any advantage over clay renders when it comes to judging... trust me.

Also, although textures may hide "flaws"... do you not think we take that into account when judging? As I stated, a pretty render doesn't make an average model, above average. Also... I've to actually see someone spend a whole week on texturing... I just used that as an example.

But.... your suggestion will be taken into account.... it will take some behind the scenes action before some like a "clay renders" only rule is enforced.

Born in hearts... and etched in cold... the swingsets pay... the playground's toll...
If you can't read this... then my plan is working!
Now stop reading this and go model something!
Soon the world of 3D will belong to me!
