Stick-maker of the Year | 2015 *It's Over*

Year 1 I Year 2 I Year 3

Wassup people! Seeing as I've discussed this topic in the intermediate chat and most people seemed like they were on board (the few that posted lmao), I went ahead and started the topic thread, so welcome to the STICK-MAKER OF THE YEAR COMPETITION!!! I'm hoping to make this an annual thing seeing as I very much liked this idea when I thought of it, so I'd REALLY appreciate it if every stick-maker would participate if they can. I'm also hoping that this will give all of the stick-makers incentive to come out of the shadows and really showcase what they have.

This is how it's happening:

Round 1
Basically just weaving out who will make it to the second round. There will be a deadline for you to submit your stick and then another week until the next deadline for the judges to pick the top 15 who will move on. Everyone who's participating in the competition will have a chance to make it to the second round.

Note: If only 15 join then the top 10, if only 10 then top 5, etc.

Round 2
The remaining 15 will have to make another stick, by the deadline, to be able to qualify for the top two.

Round 3
(This is where it get's interesting (smile )

The remaining two will have to duke it out with their stick-making abilities and try to make something more impressive then the other. There will be no deadline for the last round, voting starts when both sticks are in. Even though there's no deadline, I do ask that if you manage to make it to the last round, you finish your stick in a timely manner, as courtesy to the judges and people awaiting to know the winner.

You will be judged based on creativity, overall look (this includes holes), and functionality.
Judges
Cressel
Daniël
Sifter


*Please note that if you did volunteer to be a judge you may not participate in the competition*

As a note to the judges, responsibility of communication between the three of you will be left entirely to you. You DO need to actively communicate in order to judge effectively. So please, if you do volunteer to judge, actively communicate with your fellow judges. The way in which you judge will also be left to you guys. You have the option of openly judging in this thread, but that doesn't really sound like the best idea, so I'd suggest you do it through PM or Skype. It's entirely up to you guys though.

Please post each stick of the people who are proceeding to the next round, every round.


Rules
  • You cannot submit any previously made sticks.
  • You cannot submit any sticks that look too similar to a stick you've made before.
  • You cannot submit a stick made entirely or partially by someone else.
  • Your stick must be completed and submitted within the time frames given, or you're out of the competition.
  • There's no re-doing your entry, once it's in it's final.
  • Submit your stick to all three judges (via PM or Skype) to ensure your stick will be judged. Don't send it to me. I'm not a judge.
  • Full-bodies AND bases included.
  • You can make absolutely any and everything for an entry, except backgrounds, it has to be an actual figure.
  • You do have the option of sharing what you made in this thread.
  • If you made a base, submit the individual stick and if you've made a full body, assemble it and submit a ONE frame animation with the lone stick in it.
  • Do not make an animation accompanying your stick unless it explains how it functions (e.g. A transformer transforming).
