Judges Comments:
I like the sense that there is a cultural identity to the design and the addition of the two human skulls helps give an interesting sense of scale. When presenting a singular object devoid of its context it can be very helpful to give a sense of scale. I wonder whether the two "alien" skulls and the mask itself could have been pushed even further away from the human norm? Given the size of the human skulls this is big character/creature that wears it.
I think the detailing in the circle at the top is a bit to fiddly and needed to be simplified and make clearer as a accent point.
Over all a fun design and plays to the brief well.
Congratulations

Judges Comments:
Really nice aesthetically pleasing shape. As a collar for aggressive animals I wonder its it looks a little delicate in places. Mainly the needle like electrodes. I wonder whether a single larger needle at each point may have conveyed the same intent and function as the group of three the but with more visual impact. The actual main body of the collar feels pretty robust and I like the strong detailing and bolts. This feels much more practical. Nice sense of materials in the final render.

Thanks guys!

Congrats guys!

I wanted to enter this one, but alas timing wasn't the best for me. Never mind, maybe next time.

Thanks so much, def made my week. I can't wait to finish my model off, but that will be still a few months away until the course is finished. The book is great and I would highly recommend picking it up as it is full of awesome goodies.

I hope everyone else finds the time to finish off there ideas to, as they were looking great.
