Weekend Contest Winner: LeGore


20 - Legore

For the first time ever, a poem was our inspiration for a contest. ‘Half a League’ conjured up many battlefield images. Aliasguru's 'LeGore' interpretation earned the most votes. Congrats Aliasguru!

You’ll also get to pick the topic for next weekend! Please email me at bart @ this site and let me know what everyone should be spending their time on :)

About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)


  1. AspiringAnimator on

    Congrats, Aliasguru, Eric, Nachoc, and everyone who participated!
    On a side note, does anyone think that it would be neat if everyone got into teams of 2-4 and had like a mini-open movie project competition, where each team would work together to make a short cartoon or an image, then post it similar in style to the weekend competitions?

        And suddenly, "Project Starfruit/Cucumber/Pineapple/OtherRandomFruitsandVegetables" flashes before my eyes. :)

        • Matt Holbach on

          Haha i would love to do a open movie project like that in small groups and each person gets assigned to do different things!

            I'm awaiting confirmation that this is a go. :) If all goes according to plan, you guys get to decide the groups. I'm trying to think of a theme, I have one, but it seems way too easy, so I must come up with something better....

    • indeed an interesting approach. but how would team members find each other? and is it doable in such a short timeframe? it sounds more like a week contest rather than a weekend contest to me :)

    • AspiringAnimator on

      I thought that it wouldn't be in the same short timeframe, but maybe over the span of one to four-ish weeks?
      And it doesn't have to be a movie (although that would be awesome), it could just be a team-produced image.

      also, @aliasguru:disqus perhaps everyone who wanted to be involved could post a comment like "hey, I wanna do this" and the moderator of the contest would divide the people who said they want to do it into teams?

  2. Congratulations to everyone here, there were some really nice entries! Eric's image vas very involved, he's a hot tip for the next weekend contest!
