The first rendering contest has a winner! In fact, it has two. There was a tie for the total number of votes, so although @Fiorini got the credit for the win on the Winners page, both he and @RubenOrihuela will get prizes. The forum software makes me pick only one to show as the winner, so I selected the one I voted for.
I'll be in touch with you two about how to collect your prizes- watch your private messages.
So now we get a week off, during which @Fiorini and @RubenOrihuela get to revel in their vicotry. And then next week, we'll start with a brand new model and do it all over again. There is even a rumor that we may have a prize worth a lot more money for the next contest.
