Why not put everyones displacement skill to the ultimate test? and replace modeling programs once and for all!

Why not try to create a fullsize human just by using displacment? Participants can chose whaterver sex or body type they want but it must be done with only displacement. Not only would sculpture skill be tested but also texture and planning ;)

Maybe not has to bee about humans, it can be animals, mountains or weapons etc.
Because I don´t recall we have really had any pure displacement battle. Witch is a very intresting tool source have, booth cuse of limits and by expanding brushbased levels!
What do you think?

The only source engine games that I can think of that has dessert assets are TF2 and CS and not everyone has those. Plus some of us are too lazy to learn how to model and make textures :-D
