It's a very good comic, I think. However, I'm pretty sure that if Mr. Redcoat had a chance to "pants" Mr. Bluecoat, Ms. Islander would find a much smaller willy under those trousers.

I have no problem with doing that, but I'm not really seeing how my approach isn't fair. I only used open-source software and a mid-range computer, things that I'm guessing the vast majority of Eurobricks users would have access to. Besides, the minifig model I used (and created) is even freely available for others to download and use.
True, but we can't expect our members to have skills to work with software like that, but we do expect them to have a bit of LEGO. It's a LEGO contest after all, and we don't want to encourage drawn/CGI comics. I think the CGI-look of your comic would increase the number of votes you get, whilst on a LEGO-forum, in theory, the people with LEGO should have a small advantage in tournaments compared to people without LEGO. I hope you get my point.

Still, we also hand out prizes for active spectators, most cruel comics and such, so your BrickFilms can still be rewarding :wink:

Probably because it is a comic competition :laugh:   There was a comic done for it too, so it's cool.

I think I am in agreement with Admiral Pastry here.  He is a stupid, lousy, scummy, lame, blue coat, but I think he is right.  Photographing LEGO and using a photo editor are things we expect any member to be able to do.  Using a 3D modeler is not, even if it is open source.

However, I agree with you that this is not a building contest, so I wouldn't mind the CGI if it would not give you an unreasonable/unfair advantage.  I think gaining SOME advantage from advanced technical skill should be expected, but the question is are the skills and medium used here going to give you an UNFAIR advantage.  I don't know if I can know that, personally I think it would, but it is really up to Pastry and Redhat to figure it out!
