THE MAGNETIC DOT ENCYCLOPEDIA

Head Like

by: poolshark Follow


Contest entry for zenmagnets.com/blog, 3D human face. I decided to create the entire head rather than just the face, as some people did, and mine is completely hollow. The walls are only 3 or 4 balls thick. Unfortunately I submitted 4 photos and they choose the worst one of them (the one I shouldn't have included) to be entered for the contest. Definitely a hard contest and some neat entries. good luck to all.

    Sometimes when I see your creations, I feel like Lucille from Arrested Development when she see's Gene Parmesan.

    Creativity to the max my friend.

    I agree with Ashley's last statement ... WOW ... this is truly inspiring in such a compact package ... the details are amazing as is the proportions and its hollow to boot ! ... one shot with the ear profile may me think Vulcan. The views really accentuate the design ... its really hard sometimes to pick the entry shot ... sometimes it warrants a collage to showcase the details and views. Yes, this competition was fun and challenging with some really cool entries ... best of luck to all as well.

    GREAT JOB!! on this...I know the feeling of having the wrong image submitted into the contest :( the same happened to me..lol. The one I wanted really displayed the human facial features perfect, such as cheek bones, jawline, eye sockets etc. I was depressed at first, but what can you do..lol.

    I too was attempting a full head but ran out of ZEN magnets. I originally did do one full head with less details, then discovered a way to really show the facial features, but required a lot more magnets..lol.

    The one I submitted was hollow as well. but missing the top part of the head..lol From the back it looked like the front part of a show cut off..xD

    Here is an image that displays what I needed to do to fish off the head...lol About 4-5 more sets would have done it..xD

    There will never be enough dots Wayne. No matter what I'm setting out to build, I always seem to run out. It's the nature of constructing :)
