It’s been far too long since we’ve had a contest in this section. The contests always helped boost people’s motivation to go make awesome poses. So I felt that we needed to revive them. In honor of Mr.Whitefolks, I bring you a new Competition of Concentrated Awesome!
THE CONTEST THEME: SECRET AGENTS
This was a tough one to judge. The judges had highly differing opinions, and a lot of the pictures were relatively similar (in my opinion, a lot of them lost the secret agent feel, but I can’t pick what gets entered) So, without further ado, here are the winners of the Surfing On a- I mean, Secret Agent contest.
1st Place: Joazzz
Joazzz combined excellent posing, superb editing, and (at the time) an original concept, and rolled them into a sweet little package of badassery. Granted there are a couple minor issues, such as his earpiece looking too dark on top of the dust and the camera leaving a bit too much empty space, but otherwise it was the most solid piece entered into the contest.
2nd Place: Mrfantasticool
A very similar concept to Joazzz’z, Mrfantasticool went for as over the top and as huge a scale he could muster. Though the posing could use a bit of work, and though it looses a lot of the secret agent feel, it’s still a very impressive piece.
3rd Place: Zeraxify
Zerax gets 3rd place with this awesome entry, giving his picture a sweet movie flare you would find in a Bond movie. It was an incredibly close game for second place between Zerax and Fantasticool, but it was the small details that kept him from getting a higher place. The angle leaves some empty space, and the steam-chopper (though funny) was a pretty cheap way of avoiding the issues with isolating rotor blades (or just making your own) and though the content is sweet, he doesn’t quite get the over-the-top badassery feel as the above entries did.
That’s it for the contest! I hope everyone had fun. We got some great entries and I would like to congratulate everyone who entered.
Next contest theme: MOVIE SCENES (by popular demand)
(but the one after that will be magic, I promise you that)
