Elemental Contest #3: EARTH
This is a series of contests themed around a set of fantastical "elements". The first theme was Water. Next, we did Fire. The current theme is EARTH. Your entry can be set in any time period or based on any universe. LEGO entries are encouraged, but we also accept other types of artwork!
The only requirement is that the element of EARTH must feature prominently in your entry. By "earth", I primarily mean rocks, dirt, sand, crystals, minerals, caves - even poisonous clouds of gas. NOT PLANTS. Your entry can feature plants, but we'd prefer it to focus on rocks. Plants will probably going to be a separate contest called "life" or something. Also, the earth in your contest should be more than just a background - it should be a central element of the entry. Build a LEGO vignette of people exploring a cave or dodging a rockslide! Or something more creative - it's up to you!
JUDGING & PRIZES
Unlike the other 2 contests, this contest will be judged by a public poll! So, presentation is key - make your entry look as cool as possible in a single image if you can!
There will be 3 winners. Each winner will get a code they can use to take a certain amount of money off one order from my shop (it also subtracts from shipping, so your order can be completely free!) and a medal icon added to their account here on the forums.
1st Place Prize = $24 shop code & gold medal
2nd Place Price = $16 shop code & silver medal
3rd Place Prize = $10 shop code & bronze medal
HOW TO ENTER & DEADLINE
Just link to your entry in a reply to this topic! Yes, you must have a forum account to enter, and I encourage you to post your entry as a topic in the appropriate board here, like the Construction Zone or Artwork boards. It's not required, but we'd love to have some new members hanging around! You can even host your images in our own Gallery here, which now has a LEGO section anyone can use! But if you prefer, you can still host your images on another website and simply link to them here.
