    If you're reading this thread and you're making the trip to Botcon, I wished I could say I'd be meeting you there. But, the fact is that while I may not be able to swing the trip, you are! That being said, one of my favorite things about this time of year is reading reports and such from members here at TFW2005.com!

    I'd love to hear about your experiences there, and I'd especially love to see some photos from you guys! Feel free to post away in this thread, and any photos you submit can go in our photo galleries (you'll receive proper accreditation for your photo work as well)!

    BotCon/Other Convention Fan Art Contest Entries - Transformers Fan Art - TFW2005.COM

    If you're entering either of the Art contests, I would like to wish you the very best with your entries!

    Above all, have a blast!

    (and buy me lots of toys :D )

    Sorry, the awards happened so fast I only remember a couple of the winners names.

    I know Zodberg won 3rd place in the 2-D color comp. And it looks like my memory card may have gotten corrupted cuz I took a lot more pics, but they aren't showing up :(

    Here are some pics I took, as well as who-did-what and which ones placed.

    1st Place: MP Jazz by Jarrod

    [​IMG]


    2nd Place: Senator Ratbat by *unknown* (if they're a member here, please post their username)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    3rd Place: MP Fort Max by *me*

    [​IMG]



    Here are some other TRULY GREAT customs. Seriously, any one of these could have (or should have) won:

    MP God Ginrai and MP Overlord by Aprim (two truly great pieces of art):
    [​IMG]


    Dewbot diorama by KINGBOTZ (He won either 2nd or 3rd place in the Diorama contest):

    [​IMG]


    Powermaster Prime by TGping (who also won 1st place in the 2D b&w art contest, which I unfortunately don't have a pic of):

    [​IMG]


    MP Thunderwing by Dak (this thing was marvelous to look at in person):

    [​IMG]


    Battle scene by *warriorpriest*:

    [​IMG]



    These were just some of the great customs art on display, my only regret is not having the time to take pics of each and every one of them. But hopefully some of the other Radicons can post their pics as well so we can get a good idea of all the great art present.

    That's totally understandable. We're working on photos on the TFW2005.com end.

    If any of you have other photos to share, feel free to post em :thumb

    These are some truly great pics, man.

    BTW did anyone give you a hard time about altering a G1 Fort Max?

    Nah, nobody really gave me a hard time. I didn't go at all on Saturday except for the dinner (made my wife angry on Friday so I was on probation, lol), but Aprim told me I got lots of "oohs and aahs" with it. I didn't get to set it up the way I liked because I got there late, but I'm still happy with it. Like I said, there were TONS of great customs there. Seriously, any of them could have won.

    Yea, I'm digging every one of the entries. Good to see fellow Radicons representing the hobby at Botcon. I'm a little disappointed about the lack of coverage considering every thing else that was posted over the weekend. Perhaps they're still working on all Botcon-related material to add to the front page.

    Read Tony_B's post and also review the post where I requested those going to Botcon to post photos and report. I stated I wasn't there so I couldn't do everything myself.

    See above.
