CONTEST
While out to lunch today with my wife she asked me to host a contest for all the players. She would like to see the best Atlas Statue that Vaalbara has to offer. So I issue this challenge to all willing participants ... On the creative map where materials are no object, create your best Atlas Statue, RES it, and submit both a picture of your creation and of the image you used as a guide to this thread. My wife will be the one doing the judging not me, and she will be looking both at the pictures, and the actual statues. The contest runs from now till New Year's Eve ... and here's the best part. For the top statue I'm offering $10,000 from my own pocket. Even if you aren't the one she picks as best, I'm giving $4,000 to the first runner up and $1,000 to the second runner up. So get to it Vaalbara lets see what you can do.
~Poet

Details once more:
1. Statue must be of Atlas holding the world. Such as the images found here (Atlas Statue Images)
2. Statue must be RESed any nonRESed statues won't be considered. (the $10,000 top prize is more then worth the few hundred it will cost to keep your works safe)
3. You must post a picture of both your creation and the image(s) you were working from to this thread.
4. Contest ends sometime New Year's Eve (my wife's birthday so not sure when she'll be looking at them)

PRIZES
Top Place - $10,000
Second Place - $4,000
Third Place - $1,000
Others as my wife decrees.

As much as I'd love to participate, I don't even have the money to res half a sailboat at the moment.
I've kinda left. Might be around some other time :/

Here's my take on the atlas statue:

Please click on the pictures because for some reason they are being stretched.







I used this picture as inspiration but added an actual globe instead of just a metal frame.

Are these contests going to be a regular, like weekly, thing? Because I found it fun to build to a theme in the creative world. (Even though I think I should been in the top 3 =P)

LOL yes the contests are going to be something that I do from time to time :-) keep in mind though that for now these are simply run by me and aren't an admin sponsored thing so all the prize money given out is from my pocket LOL not sure how long I'll be able to keep giving out $15,000+ in prizes :-D

I do however, have plans for another contest that I'll announce soon for everyone.

And my wife asked me to let you know that the judging, while fun, was a very hard thing for her because all the entries were so good.

I'm glad you enjoyed doing this and I look forward to seeing what you all are able to turn out next time.
