Comicon Challengers Top 20 - 3D

The ComiconChallenge site has their Top 20 3D pieces up for us all to admire (Details on GameArtesans.org). These are the finalists in the 3D half of the challenge from 2009. They are all showing off not only some great modelling skills but also great injections of character, they are bursting with the individual identity of each figure.

Here are 6 of my favourites, It is really hard to narrow it down further. Below are3 images from each - their beauty shot, their model and their construction (Note I shrunk in quality them all a little to make them more download friendly for this blog). The entries are all worth a decent look - particularly as each shows even more detail of the model's construction/creation, texturing and such along with WIP images and commentary. Inspired stuff!!!
