Shapeways Contest Winners
____________________________________

Some time ago, we began a Shapeways Build Contest, which ended in November.  I had a lot of great builds to go through, and picking a grand prize winner wasn't easy!  There were so many great submissions, and settling on a favorite was no easy task.  Today, that wait is over - let's see some winners!

First, let's take a look at our runners-up, who will each receive a $100 Shapeways gift certificate!

All very incredible builds!  Now, I had a hard time picking a winner, because frankly, every entry was very well done.  Still, a winner must be chosen, and so without further delay, the winner of the Shapeways Build Contest grand prize (an awesome XBOX360) is:

Yeah, the village looks cool, but I'm confused why the panda statue didn't win?!

Congradulations to all of the winners! Although I do share Oliverthepten's opinion that the statue should have won.
Enjoy raiding and pvp in highly customizable and well organized groups, but hate the setup of Factions? Then check out my upcoming server containing multiple custom plugins: http://www.RisingColonies.com/

In my opinion, the group that recreated all of "azerath i think" should have won, that was just epic.

Totally unimpressed with these builds.... let them do it in survival mode without creative or mcedit, then I'll be impressed. Any moron can copy+paste a picture into minecraft... where's the real talent?

Don't hate on it. It's a whole, WHOLE lot harder than you think, translating smooth, graceful curves, beautiful colors, and tiny details into awkward, color-fixed blocks of a set size. Not to mention the patience required--it takes hours upon hours upon hours to make a structure like these people have. I find all of the creations both elegant and brilliant; don't suggest that these are morons using a Copy/Paste function--that kind of think doesn't exist and it takes skill, so try it before you go claiming that these are a bunch of monkeys with no talent whatsoever.

I personally liked the Temple of the Jade Serpent most--the panda statue is cool, but I don't know, it just doesn't appeal so much to me. On the other hand, I think that the unnamed submission by ScottHughes deserves credit for tremendous effort on the part of making the mountains and such; I have attempted that kind of terraforming myself and found that it requires inhumane amounts of time and effort. *shivers* Anyways, all really cool stuff!

Lol, random snapshot update at the bottom. Poor little announcement, no one's going to pay it any attention.
Define Cute (choose 1):   A) Creepers B) Aerbunnies C) Herobrine. If you chose A): You appeal to destruction and to stereotypes.   If you chose B): You are a perfectly normal person, and enjoy the Aether Mod. If you chose C): Please leave the planet now before you set off a nuclear warhead--no one enjoys mass murders, however nice they might seem to you.

I dunno, the giant panda should've won. That looked like a lot more effort was put into it, making it as precise as possible.

Honestly, the panda is great, but I don't think it should've won. No, I couldn't have done it, but the submission by [i]ScottHughes and all the detail in the temple, and the cliff. I don't actually think the winner should've won![/i]

Agreed, it's not bad, but it's the one that almost anyone can do.
