36.5: 2R Hex Set – Winners Announced
1st Place: Waynehjr1
“Seahorse Pride”. A wonderful representation of a seahorse proudly riding his tail across the waters surface, almost like a dolphin. “This was a little tricky getting it to balance properly, but a magnetic mirror under the scenes helped a lot. This was one of my first creations when tackling this contest.” Nice post processing effects. $65 in Zen Credits awarded, usable on ZenMagnets.com or Neoballs.com
2nd Place: Dan Condon-Jones
A very clean model of an Eiffel Tower on a bright green ground. Fact: This was actually Dan’s second attempt. The first prototype only had three legs. $57 worth of magnets won.
3rd Place: Joe Bergeron
The “Fire Ant” was built using only hexagons folded in half. “I started building having no idea what I wanted to create, and this just somehow came about.” Great photography, a must see at full resolution. $49 Zen Credits awarded.
4th Place: Poolshark
A collage of multiple views of a ship. “Folded three hexagons for the back base, and three hexagons for the front base. Two hexagons were used for each wing just curled a bit.” $41 of magnets earned.
5th Place: Smorris
The Three-Legged Ness. “The biggest challenge was to find sturdy bonds for the limbs so that they wouldn’t buckle under the weight.” Very sharp at full resolution $33 Zen awarded.
6th Place: MAGPLANT
Titled: “The Fierce Warrior”. A symmetrical figure standing among colorful LED fire candles. Submission resolution is on the low side. $25 Zen Credits.
7th Place: Teradonis
A spaceship that nearly has an enterprise-esque feel. Good framing for thumbnail generation. $17 Zen.
8th Place: Cheesus93
The Angel Ornament was “made mostly by accident… Keeping the string on was the most difficult part.” Room reflections visible at full resolution. Great shot. $9 Zen Credit awarded.
