The Room Contest: August 21-September 21
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Here's the next ABS Forever contest, The Room Contest. The task is to build a room from a house in any scale. (Micro, Miniland, Minifig, Macro, whatever.) It can be made up, or you can replicate a room from your house if you want. When you post your entry, you MUST include a LINK TO ABS FOREVER in the MOC, and a LINK to the ENTRY in THIS THREAD. (Sorry 'bout the capitals, I just want to make sure that you remember.) The winner will be chosen by me, and they will go down in the ABS Forever hall of fame on the group's homepage. The more realistic the entry is the better your chances of winning are. The due date is September 21. Have fun!

I am in! Quick question, do we have to make only one room? Or could we make multiple rooms?

Good question. I think that focusing on one room would be preferable, but I'd have no problem with several.

Ooo, I see another sepia room in my future. It's funny, I've been wanting to do another for a while now but just didn't have a good reason to. I'm jumping at this chance, provided the MOs don't hit me before I get to it!

Chances are you'll have at least a couple of weeks before the MocOlympics, hopefully that's time enough. Great to have you here!

I'll do it, I sh'pose. Would I get more points for building a room out of my house, or for building a room that doesn't exist (or couldn't) such as a wizards layer? Assuming they are both equally detailed.

Well, I had intended for this to be modern day rooms, but I think that a fantasy room would be just as good provided it was done well.

Okay, upon much deliberation I have at last chosen the winner of the ABS Forever Room Contest. However, before divulging the victor I'll say a few short words.
Firstly, I'd like to give a huge thank you to everyone who entered. The participation in this was astounding, and I really appreciate your hard work. You guys (and girls) all had different and unique takes on the category, and tons of amazing techniques were used that I'd never seen before. Choosing the champion was no easy task, and I looked over every entry several times before deciding. In the end though, I think that Ian Spacek's Cluedo takes the cake. Not only does it showcase some cool techniques, but the textures and colours are very elegant and atmospheric. It's a great example of how to use open space(k?) to accentuate the details, and how to use symmetry to enhance a creation. So, congratulations Mr. Spacek! Your MOC's main photo will become ABS Forever's group icon until the next contest, and your name will go down in the hall of fame.
Good work everyone, hopefully I see you in the next challenge!

In true "MOCie award fashion" I'd just like to begin by saying how incredibly awesome and humble I am...

Okay, that was (hopefully obviously) a joke. My actual thoughts are quite different. To my fellow competitors: it was an honor playing with all of you (a one person contest wouldn't have been much fun). Sure winning is nice, but when it comes down to it, the point is really just to have fun. There were impressive things about each entry (and I'm not just saying that to "be nice"). Like Luke said, you guys displayed so many fantastic techniques in your works. I may be borrowing some of them in the future, credit given of course. :) So that said, thank you all for fun competition! To Luke: thanks for a great contest! I am very honored. Hopefully this a good omen for the MOs. ;)

Thanks again everyone,
Ian
