    Oh boy, excited about this one! Just a heads-up, the forum links lead to this page instead of the forum!

    My first pass at this.

  • This is a criticism, something technical, for my liking I totally disagree with the deployment of UVS, the cuts do not seem correct for a good TEXTEL, besides, errors in the topology, I think it is an additional job for the artist to do This extra work that was not considered in the challenge, I ask the organizers a little more serious in the next challenges. Greetings.
