Lol. I already made a new armor suit out of sheer fandom (and being bored)
Anyway, congrats to all winners. I honestly thought mine would do well but it was pretty much destroyed by the 3D stuff. *sigh*

Mine (Volulus) actually didn't have all the concept and images i made. I had trouble with my printer's scanner, so pictures of it's environment and what combat with samus would look like was lost. i also had limited recources for color so.... that explains why it looks so bad in color, and had to make a desperate explanation. however, even if it did have all the stuff i made for it, it would be no match for the amazing stuff in the first 3 prizes and honorable mentions. honestly, those were some of the best drawings i've ever seen. i am extremely impressed by the amount of creativity and artistic talent that is on the mdb. congragulations to all the winners.

Hmmm..i wished I could enter the contest, but i couldn't because I gitta work on a manga project for my church youth class.

HOWEVAR, I did drew a sketch of how the enemy looks like, but I failed to work on it. It looks a little bit like Rundas but with different colors and it's a lot skinnier and it has cybernetic wings on it's back. The name is not yet confirmed.... :(

Maybe I could resketch it and post it up here on this thread for y'all to look at.

Hello! I'm new, so I missed all these cool contests. z>.< You guys have some amazing stuff on this site though, and I look forward to the next awesome contest! If I am correct, this year is MDb's 16th birthday, so we should do something cool!

P.S. O_O I have never seen so many smileys, much that many METROID SMILEYS :!: :D I salute you, MDb! :thumbsdown:
(I am having too much fun with this... z-_-' )

That Samus re-design contest is going to be so much fun, I can't wait to see what people come up with.

Here's a link for anyone that missed it: http://metroid-database.com/features/contest-3.php

I really hope everyone pulls out the crazy for this.

I love Games Workshop! However, correct me if I'm wrong, but this:
The more effort you put into this, the better (but please don't build it!).



means they MUST be 2D? Or can we we make 3D anyway? :-?

Unless you are a master sculptor, we are highly dissuading people from creating real, physical versions. We just don't want people spending an amount of money for an entry, even if it's just a little bit. Digital 3D versions are okay, though.
