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 FireThe 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

 

There may be some "admin's choice" winners too, if we really like an entry that didn't win - and we'll give bonus prizes for entries set in Wulfgard or Nova Refuge too!
 

 

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.
 
As stated previously, LEGO entries are encouraged, but you can also enter another type of artwork You may submit up to 2 entries. The current deadline is July 31st.
 

 

F.A.Q.

If you have a question about the contest, please ask in a reply! I will paste important questions/answers here.

I might give this a try. Would need to look around for Earth-flavored LEGO stuff of mine though.

So, Scorp, would a LEGO diorama that's a setting/snapshot of an original setting be acceptable?

 

Also, for my entry, as far as having a link to it, would a link to the images of the diorama as posted on Deviantart be acceptable? Because MOC Pages has been down for a while.

Yes to both.

 

Anywhere you choose to host the images is fine - Flickr, Deviantart, our own forum gallery, etc.

Honestly, it's been down more than it's been up for the past month. Nothing new admittedly, but still unfortunate.

Alright! So then, how many images am I allowed for my entry? Just one, or is there not a set number for how many pictures my diorama/entry can have?

The owner of MOCpages doesn't seem to care about it anymore. :( People have been asking him on Twitter to update, fix, or even just sell the website, and he either doesn't respond or blocks them. At least, as far as I've seen. Sad, really.

You can post as many images as you like, but you should have 1 main image that's your best one, since the contest judging is a public poll this time, and unfortunately most people tend to look at only 1 image before voting, lol.

Alright, here's my entry, finally done and with a solid 20 pics of it in total. I hope you all think it's OK. I didn't exactly have too many "Earth" type bricks and pieces.
