On November 21st, 1783 the first successful flight was made in a hot air balloon.
Your challenge this week is to create a hot air balloon design with a twist; the twist is that the design must evoke a specific historical period or design style of your choice. ie: Egyptian, Baroque, Steampunk, Art Deco etc.
There is no prize. There is no poll. The winner is chosen by me.
You only get one entry so be creative, and above all else, have fun!
All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine forums,ImageShack, PhotoBucket, or whatever);
- Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
- The image must be new and designed specifically for the Pop Quiz;
- No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.
- Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
- Please make the link go directly to the image(like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). See this post on how to get the direct link for most sites.
This contest will close at 6pm Eastern on Sunday, November 22nd.
My Mortal Engines-inspired balloon, the Pirate Balloon: http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah307/Dreadyacht/Pirate%20Balloon_zpsq5stqfti.png
The premiere of “Fours,” the new white wine from Count On It Company, featured a hot air balloon sendoff. The logo, a white leather wineskin, prompted an unfortunate nickname from the press. The advertising campaign DID have mixed results from the nickname “The Four Skin.”
By the skin of my teeth, a pioneering balloon from Colonial America. I couldn’t help but travel back to hitch a ride.
Contest closed – winner posted shortly.
