Our first contest is over, and things have momentarily gotten dull. So, to keep the creativity flowing I’ve started up another ground breaking, completely original contest! This is a flower themed contest, in which you must make your own Bionicle plant!
What does this entail exactly? This plant must be based off of a real plant, a rose for example, and bear something of a resemblance, as such, to the plant of your choice.
• #1- Your creation must be based on a real plant.
• #2- Your creation must bear a likeness to said plant.
• #3- Your creation must be made (more or less) entirely out of Bionicle pieces.
• #4- Your creation must share the name of your plant.
• #5- Your creation must not exceed 14” in length/width/depth.
• #6- Your creation is not to be a made up plant, nor a “fanciful” version of said plant.
• #7- Your creation must have at least two colors (whether blue for the petals and green for the stem, or a two colored flower).
• #8- Your creation is not to be a Toa of Plants, a plant beast, or anything of the sort.
• #9- You must include at least 3 different views of your creation in your pictures.
• #10- You must include a short scientific description of your plant (yes you can get it off Wikapedia).
I know that there are a lot of confining rules, but hopefully if you follow them you will get an excellent result!
I hope to open a voting booth for the judging, however, if participation is not high, I may just grade the entries myself, with volunteers again.
To get a good score, I recommend a clean background, I’m a real stickler for those.
You may want to try larger creations, the bigger the better, especially since flowers are very detailed creations, in nature, and hopefully in your entries
Remember, this is a very unique contest, and your creations need to be unique. Flowers are not easy, and most likely will not come easily. Just keep experimenting and you’ll end up with a great end result!
The contest runs from March 28-May 17, giving you about 50 days to enter.
Prize: To be decided on. However you can be sure that if you win you will get a promotion! Aside from that you’ll have to wait and see!
