View Contest Entries
Well realmers the Ostentatious Originals is back for another go. Ostentatious Originals #2 will force you to put you creativity and imagination to work . Because those great characters that only exist in you head have their time to shine. Also you can include you characters awesome and unique back stories. Do your best and let your imagination go.
The Original Characters contest. In this contest you are allowed to make any figure you want as long as its original and not a pre-existing character. You can not do your own adaptation it has to be 100% made up. The more original your character is the better. Although if you decide to make a character and say they are from a team like shield, that’s okay as long as this shield agent doesn't already exist. Same goes for if you make a Jedi or something . Also we would like to see a good back story, but it’s optional (back stories help). Other than that the same rules apply as always. Good Luck
What are the rules of the contest?
It's hard to choose just one custom to vote on when there are tons of great entries, so Figure Realm has a unique voting system where you can vote on ALL the customs! When you click on an entry to view, there's a bar with buttons on it that lets you give the custom anywhere from 1 to 5 Stars. 1 Star means you think they could have done a better job on the custom while 5 Stars means you think they did a perfect job. The votes for each entry are added up when voting is closed and averaged-out to determine the winners. Also, don't abuse the system. Don't give your own custom 5 Stars and then give everyone else 1 Star to boost your rating. Remember, the votes are monitored.
Some points you might consider when casting your vote: Is the figure well-made? Is the paint smooth or crusty? Are there noticeable fingerprints on the sculpted parts? Is it an original custom? Is it accurate to the source-material (comics, photos, description in a book)? Are the pictures clear enough to see the details? Did the creator take the time to include a back-story or recipe? Is the custom so unbelievably awesome that you'd trade your girlfriend for it?
Craftsmanship and creativity are major factors to consider, but ultimately your vote should depend on how much you like the custom, and how well you feel it fits the contest theme.
