Will reserving a spot in the submissions be allowed? To take advantage of getting your model up in the top of the thread? In all forum based competitions I’ve seen the first day it’s full of a bunch of //Reserved posts.

I will link all submissions in the top post to hopefully make it a bit fairer.

I would also tentatively say no to reservations, you will post your model when you have finished your model. I think that’s the fairest way to deal with it all.

there should be plenty of time, and likely not too many entrants this early on… as the weeks and months progress, and the prizes @Geoffers747 pulls out of his swag bag (patent pending) improve, we’ll see more and more people entering, im sure… :wink:

I’m working on the lifesize marble statue reward.

Just waiting for a response from the artist to organise my trip to him!

Ugh, this Wombat’s head is kicking my butt, and the last time I said that, a giraffe turned into a snail…
I’ve kinda got a body down, but these teardrop heads always throw me off…

guh, this Giraffe head is kicking my butt…

and then this happened

So confidence is not running high in this corner…

Edit 2 because no one else has responded, and double posting is bad :wink:

this is what I have so far. The eye placement is not optimal, so he’s blind for now and may end up with goggles and the legs are being annoying, but overall I’m pretty happy with his current shape.


What do you mean “Radiant” wombat?

Hey sorry, moved it into the discussion thread - if you’ve watched any of the livestreams you’ll notice they have a plush toy wombat on one of the sofas. Think of it as their mascot :smile:

Any better images of it?

twitch is blocked here at work, but you can watch the pizza party for a good view of the wombat… but he (or she?) is featured in every stream, as well as the campaign video… :smile:

As Steve said above you can see it in a few places. It doesn’t have to be a recreation of the Radiant wombat, it just has to be something wombat related :smile:

@jonyon54 I don’t mean to be rude or for this to be insulting in any way, but when I first saw [urlhttp://discourse.stonehearth.net/t/qubicle-competition-model-submission-cycle-1-week-1-the-wombat/1971/5?u=geoffers747]your submission[/url], I thought “that is an awesome Koala.” It probably could use some more work as a wombat, but its an almost perfect koala!

@Paranundrox yea you probably right :blush: i just really like koalas and it might influenced my work… but it’s have been done… i can’t go back now…

It might look more like a koala than a wombat. But it’s a damned good koala!

Thanks for your submission :smile:

Your model actually looks pretty spot on! (To my untrained wombat detection system)

thanks, i might try to chang a few things and make it look a bit more like a koala, in order to start an animals mode…


That sounds like my math teacher.-_-
