Keen Awards 2019: Trophies

Post by Lava89 »

Hi,
Welcome to the Keen Awards 2019 Trophy Thread!

Image

First off, I just want to say many thanks to Grandy02 for reaching out so I could dust off the old Yorp trophy and make a few new ones!

If you're wondering what the inscriptions mean on the base of the trophy:

I tried doing a plaque for the category and winner, but it didn't look right, as the text was too small. Instead I put who won and what they won for, to the side of the trophy.

Then to make every trophy unique I put a Standard Galactic Alphabet character on the base of the trophy for each category they won (A=1st category, B=2nd category). There are 17 different categories, so they go from A to Q. Below I will list out the trophies and which SGA letter is on the trophy.

Anyways, this project was alot of fun and it was great working with Grandy02 on this! Congrats to all of the winners! See you all next year! :)

Here are some animated trophies I made for fun!

Splendid trophies, Lava89! While I was expecting a unique trophy for each award, they're still very excellent, not to mention that it might be a lot of work. It sure beats having none! The SGA letter idea is pretty cute, and the spinning trophies are very cool!

I considered a unique trophy but that would be like 18 different trophies, which would take alot of time. And I want to save trophy ideas for next year ;)

That's why I put the SGA labels on them, to give each one some uniqueness.
