31.5: A Symbol or Logo – Winners Announced
1st Place: GalaxyTraveler
An elegant, soft, yet sharp rendition of the Android robot. Wallpaper worthy at full resolution. GalaxyTraveler notes that it was photographed inside a light box, on semi-translucent acrylic glass. Appropriate and effective post processing. And cheers to Android OS, and open source software. $75 awarded to GalaxyTraveler, usable on ZenMagnets.com or Neoballs.com.
2nd Place: BenjaminGoosen
At small sizes, it almost looks too perfect to be made of magnets. But at full resolution, you can see that magnets truly are the medium of this colorful Tetris logo. Precise, and attention grabbing. A classic game bundled with the release of the original game boy, now deeply ingrained into video game psyche. $55 in Zen Credits awarded.
3rd Place: Waynehjr1
Heavily post processed, but solid build techniques. Tons of nostalgia for the audience that enjoyed Nintendo 64 [and especially Mario 64, of course.] Undoubtedly many readers have an N64 tucked away in storage, or on a shelf collecting dust. $40 of magnets earned.
4th Place: Dollabills
The NFL logo built with over 4200 magnets. Great use of colors. Depth extremely well extruded from an originally flat logo. Nice border accents. $25 awarded.
5th Place: Mathnetism
A Variation of the Caduceus, the traditional symbol of Hermes featuring two snakes wrapped around a staff. Mesmerizing geometry, impressive structure, and superb symmetry. Must see in full resolution. $15 in Zen Credits.
6th Place: Tend2it
Doctor Who nerds, rejoice. This magnetic model of a Tardis will soon travel through time, and or space. Relevant backgrounds are always a nice touch. $7 Zen Prize.
