They have provided me with a chunk of text to tempt you with, but let me cut to the chase and say; zombies and cash prizes. A no-brainer for sure. You have two months from today to get something done. So even if you are participating on something else, you should have time to work this into your normally scheduled TL2 or BL2 sessions.
MIXAMO Zombie Character Creation Contest
This 3D Character Creation Contest is all about Zombies!
The point of the contest:
- Users create a Zombie Character

- Must create a Work in Progress post on a 3D community forum (preferably Polycount!)
Once they are done with their work, they must then go to the Contest Page and submit:
- A beauty shot rendering of their Zombie maximum resolution of 2048x2048.
- Maps to showcase their work -- diffuse, alpha, normal, specular, specular color, glow are accepted -- in a maximum resolution of 2048x2048.
- The URL to their WIP post
- Optional: If they want to qualify for the Frankenstein prize, they can apply a Mixamo Zombie animation to their character and submit either an .fbx file or a YouTube video URL showing their animated character.
