"Virtual" Blanx Custom Action Figure Contest - 4/22/2013

Welcome to our first ever "VIRTUAL" Blanx custom action figure contest! This first in an ongoing series of contests will begin April 22, 2013, and the deadline for entries will be June 6, 2013. That is six weeks to complete your entries!
This contest will be a bit different than the usual custom action figure contest. It is going to be a "Virtual" contest, on the computer! However, the prizes will be real! Prizes shown below.

For this contest, you will need to go to the "Templates" page of the gonativetoys.com website, and download any one of the free images of the Alpha Blanx figure. The images can also be right clicked and saved onto a desktop, or even drag and dropped. These images can then be opened in any drawing or painting program like Photoshop, Illustrator or the like. They can also be printed out, and drawn directly over or traced over. Design your figure any way you see fit. For examples of other figure drawings done this way, have a look at the Design Gallery... http://gonativetoys.com/dgallery1.html

All of these figure drawings were done over the Alpha Blanx Templates. Many exist only as the digital paintings, but some designs were used to create an actual Alpha custom like Aquaman, Black Spy, Gray Alien, and Jedi. To see the actual figure custom done from the design drawings, click on the "See The Customized Figure" link on the Aquaman Page...

The contest theme is open, meaning any design at all from any category, movie, comic, tv show, or your own imagination is acceptable! When you are happy with the design, (and by the contest deadline, of course) email the image back to... info@gonativetoys.com

    If you printed the image out, you will need to scan it back into the computer to email it to us. Only emailed submissions accepted. Enter as often as you like! Contest entries will be posted in the  Design Gallery... And winners will be announced at the end of the contest.

   Feel free to alter the background in any way you like, but remember the custom will be judged on the figure design only. Your "virtual" custom will be judged based on a combination of the coolness of the concept, design, and drawing ability, NOT just the drawing ability alone. So if you're not too confident in your drawing skills, don't worry! Do your best! You have the same chance as anyone! Good luck and have a great time!

Contest rules

1) Figure design must be created over the Alpha Blanx body Templates. Body proportions can be modified, additional pieces added to, and drawn over as much as needed for your character. Modification is not required however, a great paint job might be all that is needed to win!

2) Multiple entry is ok.

3) Must be a new custom figure drawing, not shown here or anywhere before.

4) Submit your custom figure drawing back to us in a JPEG format by June 6, 2013 to.... info@gonativetoys.com

5) A drawn base or background is encouraged to any degree you like, but is not required. The figure will be judged on it's own merit, not considering the background.

6) Include in the email whatever text about yourself or the custom drawing that you want. Make up a backstory for your character if you'd like! Some or all of the info may be displayed with the picture.

7) Winners will be notified by email. Shipping address will be requested at that point to send the prizes!

Selected entries will be posted on the website in the Design Gallery.

August 2012 Contest closed, check back here for the next custom contest, coming soon!
And check out the gallery pages for the winners of this one!

Welcome to our first Blanx custom action figure contest! This first in an ongoing series of contests will begin May 15, 2012, and the deadline for entries will be August 15, 2012. That is three full months to complete your entries! Future contests will be shorter, but for this first one, additional time to get the word out, and a deadline not conflicting with the San Diego Comic Convention seemed like the way to go.
For this first contest the category will be wide open! That is, no particular theme. Your figure can be based on any character you can possibly dream up. Any superhero, fantasy, sci-fi, or any other character is fair game.

1) Figure must be created over the Alpha Blanx base body. Body can be modified, additional pieces added to, and sculpted over as much as needed for the character. Modification is not required however, a great paint job might be all that is needed to win!
