Jem Design Contest Gallery and Questions

#1 Post by ernzzz » Thu Jul 08, 2010 4:43 am

Hey there! :peace

I thought it could be a nice idea to have a post dedicated to the designs everyone made for the contest...

Here are mine, hope you like em!
Image Image Image Image Image Image

From Left to Right: JEM Lapis Blue Marble, JEM Purple Duality, JEM Arctic Sun, JEM Bio Cell, JEM Venusian Honeycomb, JEM Purple Leather

Also here's the question i asked Steve, for the previous contest:

""Could it be that the sheer intrinsic mellifluosity, and the avant-garde, hyperrealist harmonic sophistication of the inner working machinery on the melodies of rhythmical purity, and mathematical precision wich you emanate and render, were in fact, just a crystalized effect of the divine natural creative force of the Universe, infused in part, and revealed in all its depth, by the otherworldly nature of The Divine Vai???""

Too bad i didnt win! I thought I actually achieved something with that question! (bear in mind i'm Spanish..)

I hoped at least Steve would like it and tell me something, but hey, it didnt happen, i guess i have to burn more neurons the next time!

Now let's see all your designs!! :guitar

I'm going to hold this spot and have my pics up soon.

All I can really say about this is that it was a good game. When I put in my entry, I was like "Oh yeah...this is the one." Anybody else feel that way?

A big Thank You to Steve and the guys at Ibanez for putting this one for us.

Congratulations, Alex.insert expletive here... :mrgreen:

Truly a great contest idea.
Great work everyone, It was very exciting seeing everyone's unique designs and I
was very impressed with all the creativity and colors.
I had a blast watching and wondering what was next.

Congrats to Alex and everyone who created an entry.

Here was my entry. I used instances of 7 from history and nature.
7 wonders of the ancient world, Pallaides the seven sisters, sevens in seven languages
you get the idea. There are 777 uses of seven in the design.

Peace.

Nice one that Vaiper, i really like the snake texture.

And wow! Awesome concept on that deisgn Mstaaf!

I didnt got dissapointed with the design contest winner, cause i really like the winner design, and it makes sense for a steve vai guitar.. But I was really dissapointed with the "question contest", as i thought my question really achieved something, and it isnt a phallacy like the winning question was (i.e. appeal to emotions etc)

But hey, congrats to the winners, i sure enjoyed taking part of all it.

Loved the 7 guitar by mstaaf, there's a lot of talented graphic designers out there.

mine is based on a 77FP type thing except I wanted to sacrifice my t-shirt I bought in the 80's as the cloth for the covering, it's all cracked and faded now but looks kinda cool.

This is crazy, how do you make these :shock:????

I really like the honey bee one, but it definately needs another neck. Maybe some bees flying around and the hive at 12th fret...
