IMPORTANT UPDATE ON THE PIRAKA QUIZ

Posted by Octodad , Jul 23 2014 · 92 views

I made a grave error in counting for the last question, meaning unless you made the same counting mistake as I did, none of the answers would be correct. Depending on what you count as an individual set, the actual answer can be anywhere from 19 to 22 (24 if you're also willing to add in the two foreign Piraka Kaita sets) so I apologize for not double-checking my numbers before publishing the quiz. Unfortunately, it appears once a quiz has been published it cannot be edited, at least not by me.

LEGO Octodad Preliminary Designs

Posted by Octodad , Jul 11 2014 · 139 views

Finally rendered some rough images of my current design for a LEGO Octodad set. The minifigs lack most of their printing, since I don't have nearly the skill to attempt it. The only printing applied is the face for the titular character.

It is, unfortunately, a pretty bland design based on the aquarium, the setting for most of Dadliest Catch. The included minifigs are Octodad, Scarlet, Stacy, Tommy, two Marine Biologists, Joe, and the Chef. It's a lot, so I'd imagine if this made it to the end they'd probably cut some, which is a shame, because I felt I included only essentials. Also included is an orange Octopus to represent Octodad in the level Shark Naked, as well as the hammerhead shark featured in the center tank.

That's not light grey, it's white; POV Ray seems to render white as a sort of grayish off-white. Additionally, some of the pieces are purely wishful/convenient thinking. I doubt a clear flickfire would be in the final model if it made it that far.

Any comments and criticisms would be appreciated.

Honestly, you can make this sound like some kind of crusade for justice all you want (I'm going to hope that some of how you worded it is just meant as hyperbole to make a point, though?), but it just comes across to me as being anti-fun and anti-imagination.

 

There's a time and a place for joke entries to place high in a contest (actually no there really isn't but w/e), but the first site-wide BZP contest is certainly not one of those times.

 

The first entry offended my eyes.

 

Well, this was probably in the bottom 3 comics I've read in my life. Didn't make much sense, and some things were hard to read because of the coloring and font style.
