===============================================================
Rules:
1.) For your entry the main requirement is that it must be related to Minimates.
2.) Your entry can be pretty much anything that would be considered artwork: mostly any media picture creation (this includes comic cover or scene recreation in any format), drawing, painting, photo, sculpture, etc.
3.) Please submit your entry in this thread and note on it that it's your official entry.
4.) This must be a new creation from the start of this post. This doesn't mean that everything in it must be new. For example you can take a picture of your figures or old customs, as long as it is a new picture. You can take a bunch of old pictures and create a new collage. You can create a brand new custom and call it a sculpture (or actually make a Minimate sculpture). If you have more questions about this please ask.
5.) Only one entry per person, open to all members worldwide that are not me.
6.) You can make changes to your entry up to the deadline of this contest.
7.) Remember safety first and that we are a family friendly site.
8.) MinimateMultiverse takes no responsibility or liability for any broken laws, damage or general mayhem caused in the process of creating your entry.
9.) Any entries that do not post either due to timing or technical issues are not the responsibility of MinimateMultiverse.
10.) MinimateMultiverse has the right to change the contest or rules at any time. This includes but is not limited to the completion date and prizes.



===============================================================
Dates:
Entries will be accepted between now and November 2nd at 11:59 PM CST.
Voting begins immediately after end of entry date until November 7th at 11:59 PM CST.
Winners will be posted shortly afterwards.

===============================================================
Voting:
The PM Ballot system will be used for the voting.

Each submitted ballot must list in order, the top three most creative entries.

1.) Most Creative Entry
2.) Second Best Entry
3.) Third Best Entry

Anyone can vote, even the participants.
If you are a participant, you cannot vote for your own entry.
The 10 point minus system will be used to calculate the results.
Points awarded will be as follows: 1st will get 10pts, 2nd will get 9pts, 3rd will get 8pts.
Tie-breakers will be decided by sudden death cage match pillow fight or by my kids' vote; whichever is easier to schedule.
During the voting period, please send all ballots by PM to me.

===============================================================

If you have any questions, please post them in this thread.

A big thanks goes out to Zach at DST for the prizes and a special thanks to Uriel Caton for sharing his incredible art work with all of us!

Good luck and have fun!

Dammit. Guess I posted this about a week too early.

(Not my official entry because it would be disqualified.)

Guess I've got to start a new entry. With blackjack. And hookers.

Edited to remove old image, still linked though.

^Ivan, yes, as beautiful as that picture is (seriously, DST should have that as a mural at their offices) even Spidey seems down that he isn't able to enter.

Is Articulated Comic Book Art allowed? yes.gif

^that would fall under the any media creation category, so yes

I think I've said this in past contests with comic book panels to keep it concise, a 40 panel 4-5 page comic is not going to work for this contest as we're looking for one distinct piece of artwork

Been a rough day, it's now late, kinda tired, really don't know what I was thinking.......

So here is my entry, Groot impersonating John McClane in Die Hard 2 when he is escaping in the Ejector seat from the explosion.

Ok, here's mine. Been in my head for awhile, and anyone who has seen my Halloween costume will understand the motivation for this ;-)

I haven't had access to my computer for months, so this was mainly done as a sketch then a few phone apps. I'd like to do a more official looking poster down the road when I'm set back up, as well as some customs of these guys!
