2WC 2: Sig Fig Vig
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Welcome to the second Two Week Challenge! Thanks for all the great entries in the last one, so I'm hoping for a good turnout again.

Lego Builders Senior came up with a spin off of the "Custom Minifigure" theme from the list, and created Sig Fig Vig. Basically, build a Vignette for your Signature Figure.

A Sig Fig is a minifigure representation of yourself. Some are very realistic and some are quite fantastical. Some are in specific themes when they are more fantastical which is where you get your Castle, Space, Star Wars, Middle Earth, Ninjas, Phipsons, and such themes. We are now asking you to build a Vignette that relates to the specific theme of your Sig Fig.

Got a Castle themed Sig Fig? Build him in mortal combat or saving a damsel. Sci-Fi? Have him fighting a Xenomorph Queen while in a Cargo Loading Exosuit. And etc.

Rules:
Here is an outline of rules I have made. LB Senior can make any changes he wants to this since this is his idea, so not everything is quite set in stone at the moment.

You must have a Vig for your Sig Fig. Vignettes are typically 20x20, so any dimensions within a 20x20 with some overhang counts. No height restriction as well.

You must have YOUR Sig Fig for the Vig. You can add others but the main Sig Fig should be your Sig Fig.

The two Sig and Vig should have the same theme. If they do not, make a good explaination (backstory, not an excuse) as to why.

There most be an illusion of motion, meaning that there should be something happening, not just you Siggy looking at the camera with a backdrop.

You may only submit a new entries, and only one per person. Yes, I know you have more than one sig fig, but you'll just have to choose one, or let them fight to the death.

There must be a link to your entry in this topic between now and the end of Friday, February 1st, 2013. It makes it easier to find and judge entries this way.

Points:
LB Senior also can adjust these to his liking, so things are still not quite set in stone.

Total of 25

Sig Fig: 5
How original is your Sig Fig? Does he use Collectible Minifigure parts? What parts does your Sig Fig uses? Etc.

Vignette: 10
Does it relate to your Sig Fig's theme? What is happening? How well is it built? Etc.

Presentation: 5
Good Pictures? (Quality [Pixel Count] is different than blurry) Good grammar? Text matching photos correctly? Working links, if any?

Person Opinion: 5
These are bonus points. If a judge likes your theme, a certain way you built something, or you make them smile, chuckle, laugh, extract an emotional response or whatever, you will be given some extra points.

Remember, LB Senior is the man with the plan, so he can make some changes anywhere he sees fit, but be at ease, he'll make any changes early on. He's not that bad of a guy. :)

Also, don't forget that you can ask any question related to the challenge.

Happy building! Entries are to be in on Friday the 1st, Judging will comence the next day.

No. Every contest we hold here have no preliminaries whatsoever. The more entries we can get, the better. You can participate in as many contests as you like as long as they are curently being held. You don't even need to be signed up, just submit an entry. It's that simple.

If I understand your question correctly; yes, you are allowed to add accessories to your figure. Hope this answers your question.

So I have had my entry done for the past couple days, however when I try to upload the images, the uploader fails. Many other people are also having this problem. For now, would you like me to post them on my Flickr account, give you a link (so at least you can see it) and then I will upload it to MOCpages as soon as the uploader starts working?

When Thursday comes, and the uploader is sitll not working, we will postpone this because this is a MOCpages issue, not a contestant one. However, you are still able to upload a MOC by using flickr pictures, you just won't have a main picture.

Because the uploader is currently down and is hindering the ability of the other contestants to post their entries, the deadline has been extended to February 8.

Alright, it is still Early Morning MOCpages time, and it is Wednesday, giving three days to upload entries. It may seem close, but you can upload entries now if you haven't forgotten already, and it should be working for you, as well as e-mails. Deadline is still this Friday, February 8th!

Oh, and if anyone wants to volunteer to judge my entry, that'd be nice, but you need to let me know you are going to so I don't have three comments judging my thing.

Since you've got everything built already, and we want as many participant as possible due to the uploader failing, I'll allow it this time. We usually don't unless it was a MOC-off between two people for fun, not a big contest. If it's for the MELO, I hope it's from LotR because that, I will know.

LB Senior isn't judging? I don't know that it's quite fair to say that everyone is judged by the same person except for one person who is judged by a different person. The judging criteria for each person will be different. To be completely fair, have someone who isn't part of the competition judge all of the entries.

LB Senior is judging, I just don't know when he is usually on. It should be later today. He will be judging everyone's, but I am just seeing how well I could do since I have been judging just about every contest, but never actually taking part in the builds. We just needed one other person to judge mine so there would be two judges per person. If I happen to get it, sorry. If I don't, you won't have anything to say about it. Yes everyone's criteria is different, but do you know anyone here right now who is not participating in this challenge that is on their computer that can judge everyone's right now and make all my scores void? I'll gladly take them.

That makes sense. I know I wouldn't have any say if you do win (your creation is awesome) I was just stating something :)

I'd suggest David . if he's up for it. He's not on now but he should be later today. :)

I'd also suggest Patrick Devine

I'd also suggest Timothy Wallace since he's on now :)
