1. what will we start with? a good base mesh is important for most things, so...
will we create one our selfs, use a community base mesh thats made specifically for each comp and detail it individually, or will we just start with a cube and subdivide it until topology doesnt matter?

2. is it a speed sculpting challenge, or a best-quality-1-month-to-do-a-character kinda thing?

3. is painting/texturing involved, or will it be solid color to show the pure sculpture?

4. will the topic be a democratic choice, or at the whim of a 3dtotalitarian moderator?

p.s. i like that "beauty" idea as a competition concept. its very open ended and almost guarantees a good portfolio piece

I think the idea is we all use the same mesh so we're on the same playing field. At least for this one.

Yeah, I think for the most part we are gonna supply the base mesh ourselves. This is all about the sculpting... Also, we want this to be the kind of competition that anyone can have a go at be they in full-time employment, student, have kids, are single, married, deceased, and so on...
