Default 2D/3D Environment and Character Art Competition

Hey all! If anyone has any questions about the Notes on Game Dev 2D/3D Environment and Character Art Competition, I can field them to the folks running it. Submissions are due June 15, so that's just around the corner. The submission requirements are pretty loose, so you'd probably have a good shot at winning in one of the four categories.


The Notes on Game Dev 2D/3D Environment and Character Art Competition
is open for entries until June 15. Art will be judged by some of the
top talent in game development today including Damian Pannell (Artist,
Relic, Vancouver, British Columbia), Doug Oglesby (Concept Artist, Red
Storm Entertainment), Jesse Brophy (THQ, Phoenix, AZ), and Nate
Purkeypile (World Artist, Bethesda). Excellent prizes for winners
include a full Game Art Certificate Program from Sessions Online
Schools of Game Art, a broad choice of instructor-led game art and
animation classes, membership in IGDA, and subscriptions to Game
Developer Magazine. Winners will be announced on July 1.

There are four categories in which you may enter--3D Environment Art,
2D Environment Art, 3D Character Art, and 2D Character Art. You may
submit only one entry for each category. Each category will have a
finalist, and from these finalists a Grand Prize Winner will be
selected. The Grand Prize Winner receives a fully paid grant for the
Accredited Game Art Certificate Program at Sessions Online School of
Game Art ($5355 value) - OR - any number of the instructor-led online
classes taught at Sessions Online School of Game Art including Maya
Basics, Maya Advanced, Tiling Textures, Game Lighting and Color,
Tiling Textures, Character Animation, Character Setup and Rigging,
Game Analysis and Criticism, Intro to Game Development and History of
Video Games; a one year membership in the International Game
Developers Association; and a one year subscription to Game Developer
Magazine.

I donīt know much about character art and this is probably not the right thread - but to find more about it is it worth purchasing books about it - have found two online:

Maya 2008 Character Modeling & Animation: Principles/Practices

Would these be a waste of money or are they valuable if i want to learn more - i am interested more in character art for pleasure and personal interest rather than for a career - perhaps you may know of a good site with similar info!?

Any suggestions would be welcomed! Thanks
