41: Super Smash Sculptures
Everything not saved will be lost. – Nintendo “Quit Screen” message
The July 2014 contest is to create a 3D Sculpture of a character from Super Smash Bros Melee using a maximum of 1728 magnet spheres of any brand. It’s a pretty wide selection of characters from the Nintendo universe, and you can have a shot at any one of them. This is a relatively high skill contest, since none of the characters are represented by simple geometry, so we’re increasing the prizes a bit.
Although the limit is 1728, don’t feel obligated to use more than is necessary to represent the shape of the character. Nor should you feel required to use colorful magnets, as judges will be asked to primarily judge shape. No flat 2D builds allowed.
Use not your bright reflective flash, but instead a self timer and a tripod (or stand.)
As usual, the judges will be your peers. Pay attention to resolution, focus, lighting, background and framing. Sharp, high resolution pictures are preferred, but remember that your thumbnail will be hexagon shaped crop when presented among others. There will be at least FIVE winners, possibly more depending on participation. The prize for first place in this contest will be $100 Zen Credits, usable on zenmagnets.com or neoballs.com. All Zen Credits are also exchangeable for half their value in Bitcoin. Everything you submit goes into the public domain. Of course, the first and foremost requirement, is that you have fun!
Submission deadline is the end of July
