Round 2!

 Group admin 
Note, that the average scores of both divisions are basically the same, so BOTH DIVISIONS ARE EQUAL. This means that neither division is more difficult than the other. Each division will have ONE category only to choose from. You MUST use the category for your division, you CANNOT use the other division's category. But fear not, each category is more or less applicable to every genre of LEGO. Note, since we are now in round 2, I am not giving suggestions for categories, you can figure it out on your own ;)

The rules remain the same as round 1.

Division 1

Category- "Heroic Dilivery Man"- Show a delivery man (of any type) doing something herioc!

Note, they can be delivering anything, it does not need to be something like pizza, and it need not be in a modern setting (though it can be).

Justin M
Sean B.
Finn tegotash
Thomas of Tortuga
General X
Gilbert Despathens
J-Rod Smith
Josh Walter
Bad Guy XD
A Sargent
Stephan Boe
Legofin.
Gerald F.
Daniel Tefol
Petric G.
Marlf !

Division 2

Category-"Peril"- Show someone in grave danger, a near death situation!

Note, this can be taken on a non-literal since if you choose.

Each division will have HALF of the players in it elemintated. In round 3 there will be new divisions, based on the scores of THIS round. Good luck everyone!

You have until NOVEMBER 6TH AT MIDNIGHT TO POST, eastern timezone (USA). This means that since November 6th is a Wednesday, you must post it by WEDNESDAY NIGHT (Eastern USA). We had some confusion with this before, hopefully this fixes it.

Also note that we have CHANGED JUDGING FORMATS. It is important for you to read that, it may effect you build!

Good luck! (again)

Haha - I'm the first one done judging :D

Anyway, I just want to say that the competition is going to be tight! There will probably be 1 point differences between who moves on and who doesn't. So if you don't make it, you were probably close to making it.


However....for those who DO make it to round 3. I have this general suggestion - make sure your photos are good! Lighting is key. Most of the time, you need brighter lighting. There were several entries that would have easily gotten 2-3 more points (from me) just by improving the photo quality (pictures).

I think that outdoor lighting on an overcast day is good for taking pictures. You don't get the yellow colors from the artificial lighting, and it is (normally) bright enough to show the true colors of the LEGO elements and the details that you added.


And to (most) all of the contestants, be glad that I'm not deducting points for overhang XD

I'm not sure how strict it (overhang deduction) will get in the next round, but we'll see.

I think that outdoor lighting on an overcast day is good for taking pictures. You don't get the yellow colors from the artificial lighting, and it is (normally) bright enough to show the true colors of the LEGO elements and the details that you added.


And to (most) all of the contestants, be glad that I'm not deducting points for overhang XD

I'm not sure how strict it (overhang deduction) will get in the next round, but we'll see.
I don't know if you were talking about me when you said some people had overhang, but if so, Caleb said leaves are allowed.

No worries people, I don't think anyone got points off this round.

Hey, for once I didn't have any overhang! (I assume he's talking about Alex and Thomas)

At least one judge is done, from Caleb's comment about the overhang it sounds like he's done, so at most two judges left.

Haha - I'm the first one done judging :D

Anyway, I just want to say that the competition is going to be tight! There will probably be 1 point differences between who moves on and who doesn't. So if you don't make it, you were probably close to making it.


However....for those who DO make it to round 3. I have this general suggestion - make sure your photos are good! Lighting is key. Most of the time, you need brighter lighting. There were several entries that would have easily gotten 2-3 more points (from me) just by improving the photo quality (pictures).

That's me, for the lighting. I usually try to take pictures during the day, but I was taking these at the last minute. Considering they were taken in the middle of the night, I don't think I did too terribly. =P
