Eurobricks' Super Hero Comic Cover Contest!

Recommended Posts

One question: If I take a comic cover, which is black and white, can I take a black and white pic? I guess every other camera can take such pics and it's hardly "mad photoediting".

Good day, ladies and gentlemen! ) :classic:

Yes. It would be the equivalent of using a different film which would be acceptable. :thumbup:

I'd just like to clarify/confirm two things:

All official LEGO minifigures and parts are permitted.

Since it's not stated that only "official LEGO minifigures and parts are permitted" I assume custom minifigs are allowed right? If so, is there any limitation to the customization? Purist only? Non-purist allowed? (I think is particularly important for comic covers with characters that haven't been released in LEGO, otherwise we will be limited wih only the official super heroes released so far.)

NEW RULE: Do not add anything digitally to the photo to make it resemble the cover more closely. You may tweak the lighting and such to make the image clearer but do not add special effects or the words to your image. The point of the contest is to recreate the cover with LEGO not Photoshop.

I understand that only the posted/deeplinked photos in the topic are the only ones eligible for judging, but are we aIlowed to provide a link to a flickr/Brickshelf folder with the Photoshop-edited comic cover? (like the rule in MCW contests).

I thought I'd been clear, sorry. This isn't a typical building contest so it's hard to know where to draw the line. I intentionally left the rules as open-ended as possible to give people a lot of free rein. I'll add a rule clarifying.

Custom figures are allowed as long as the figure contains at least 60% actual LEGO. As a rule of thumb, a casual observer should recognize that a custom figure is LEGO.

I understand that only the posted/deeplinked photos in the topic are the only ones eligible for judging, but are we aIlowed to provide a link to a flickr/Brickshelf folder with the Photoshop-edited comic cover? (like the rule in MCW contests).

Sure.

I want to remind everyone that the picture of your entry should come first in your entry thread. The picture of the cover you recreated should follow afterwards.

Do we have to use minifigures? Can we brick-build the superhero?

No minifigures are required. I don't see why not.

As I already said somewhere, one of the best contests around! The idea of recreating a comic cower was brilliant and also all the entries were quite distinct and represented the covers well. I was also really happy about the number of entries which gives a lot of images to drool over. Although I think it was quite tight in the top 5 - 6, I guess the winners are well deserved. ut as said, there actually was no bad entrie. Could we maybe get some more results?

Congratulations to all the winners and all you lucky bastards who won the raffle ;)
