Gencon trophies 2009

Posted August 6th, 2009 at 12:53 PM by stay_golden_PONYBOY
Now that they've been posted by R˙chean, I thought I'd share how a few of the trophies for this years GENCON were pitched and how they turned out.

My inspiration for approching him came from seeing what my very gracious roomie had crafted for GENCON 2008. I saw the pride he had in presenting those trophies and I wanted to continue on the tradition of custom made pieces.

When I saw this thread, I found my chance at offering to make one.

I should apologize for my photoshop skills in advance, but this:

turned into this...


into this...

and this into


I have to admit, I had a lot of fun drawing these up and sending them to R˙chean via PM.

I know there lots of you out there much more talented than me, so I encourage you to look into throwing some ideas out there for next years events.

Anyone traveling next week, please have a safe trip to Indy, and I'll see you on the battlefield!

Those look great, however the General Wars plaques really stand out to me. The symbols along with the plate in a corresponding color look fantastic. Too bad I suck too much to win one.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

I really hope the winners like them, and I'd love for them to post a photo of them displayed in their home/office after GENCON.

Kudos for the trophies. I tried to win the Aquilla General trophy but was shut down, going 0-5 and fininshing the whole thing in LAST PLACE! YESSSS! I ROCK! But seriously though, the trophies that I saw at the con were really nice. Bravo to making them a reality!
