Skin My Ash Results
It's time to hand out the swag, because the Community has stepped up to create some awesome skins!
  — by Ash

When I started this contest, I had no idea how many entries, and how many quality entries, I would get. The amount of time and effort that was put into these skins is amazing, and I want to congratulate everyone that entered. You guys and gals all rawk! If you're having a tough time remembering the rules and qualifications of the contest from the three weeks ago that it started, it might be worth a look before we move on. With all the squishy thanks out of the way, it's time to get to business.

We have definitely rounded up one seriously seksi prize pack for the first and second place entries in the Skin My Ash contest, but before we get to the amazingly talented swag winners, there are a couple of Honorable Mentions I'm going to nominate. Out of all the entries, there were a large number of absolutely fantastic entries, and while these two artists won't be winning swag, they have some well deserved notoriety to receive.

 

Cold Fusion

Honorable Mention: Cold Fusion by Chemical Burn

Cold Fusion is a very high quality skin done by Chemical Burn. I've always been a fan of Chemical Burn's work, and this time is no exception. As per Chemical Burn's style, the skin utilizes very bright bold colors, but with the detail present to maintain the "gritty" realism that makes Quake 3: Arena what it is. I particularly liked the color choice present in this skin. While the artist is known for picking contrasting colors for primary agents in his work, this particular skin he chose two more complementary colors. And while it doesn't give the skin the same "jump out" feel of his other schemes, I really liked the way that the dark blue and light blue-green worked off of each other.

Add to that a great eye for detail, and we're talking about a skin that is a fantastic work, and definitely worth a mention here on PlanetQuake right here in front of everyone.

Quad Flamingo

Honorable Mention: Quad Flamingo by One Narly Dude

Quad Flamingo gets an honorable mention for the super cool use of shaders. The "quad" in Quad Flamingo is definitely from the very cool glowing and rotating quad environment map that's spinning around inside, not unlike the Gorre skin by id Software. What really turned me on was the use of an almost monochromatic color scheme that reminded me of the armor on the comic book heroine Witchblade, followed by the bold use of shaders. This is a fun skin to wear and play with, because while you can't hide in the dark, you are definitely seen when you're cleaning up on the competition. A great effort by One Narly Dude, and worth the Honorable Mention. Oh, and for the record, while I can see where the Quad comes from, I have no idea where the Flamingo comes into play. =)

Next... the winners!
