Boom. That's right, sweet new art contest. Enter now guys, this one's only gonna last like two weeks and that's IT.
This is intended as a design challenge for our members - the plan originated when it was decided we would have a sweet matte painting done as a backdrop for some of our MOCs this year at Brickfair - we wanted Ta-Koro, but the question became what about the most popular members of this little village? What of poor Tahu, noble Vakama, and sad little Jaller? Do they not get to be featured? We couldn't very well just put the sets on display, and me drawing them on the scene seemed a little boring. Plus, I wanted a way for Bionicle artists to get some play at Brickfair this year - we often have members send in posters they have done, but I wanted something more visceral and interactive. That's how I hit upon the idea of asking our members to design the characters themselves so that I could print them out and basically create free standing pieces of artwork that could intermingle with the various MOCS on display. Thus, the contest was born. Unfortunately the entry period got a bit truncated by the Battlescapes contest which uh...overran it's runtime by a bit. So sorry about that! On the bright side, sweet stickers are the prize. And also maybe some other stuff. Possibly.
Oh yeah, and that comic? we're working on it. update maybe tomorrow. With brickfair getting closer and closer I've had to catch up on some other tasks to get ready for it.
