We treated ourselves to a nice pottery pumpkin with the winnings.

UNBELIEVEABLE! Maybe you should try a cute skull scarecrow next year.

Crazy. : ) Guess the viewing public aren't into things that look like a meal to garbage flies.

And if you watch my BLIGHT video on youtube, you'll see that first place scarecrow at the very end of the video, right before BLIGHT appears. It's the same scarecrow, just in a different position. I should have stuck the Pumpkinrot scarecrow up again. ; )

I guess at least it was a witch and not Humpty Dumpty.
I'm going to try to get something like that started around here, not so I can try to win it, but more for an excuse to build something else.

Grim said...

Oh yeah, and second place... no comment.

I propose that next year you do a multi-headed scarecrow using parts from all your previous entries. Just go totally Rob Bottin on them. I'm thinking 10' tall and about, oh, say 8' wide. A big, gruesome wall of a scarecrow.

Just a thought.

Anyway, fantastic job as always. I make a show of the injustice done to you each year but really the results aren't all that surprising given the audience. I just delight in the fact that you stand your work up with all those cutesy scarecrows. Apart from the craftsmanship & artistry that's the real joy for me.

I'm a bit of a pansy, really. I've actually had nightmares off of some of the things you've posted in your blog (don't tease me!). I scare easily, but I love your work and I love what you post.

And pansy or not, I do not love those 1st and 2nd place scarecrows. "Are you serious?" was my first thought.

So if a pansy like me can see what's wrong with the picture, how did all those voters get it wrong?

Great work as usual RoT. But i dont understand, scarecrows are meant to be scary...

In the words of Jay in Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back..."The whole world is against us dude, I swear!" The judges apparently don't understand that it's Halloween, not Happy Day. But that's just my dark demented opinion... =)

The Hollowman puts the SCARE back in scarecrow.
The rest aren't even in your ballpark Rot.
The only scary thing about those other two is that one of them is wearing crocs!

RebelShade said...

Those other two scarecrows are not even in the same leage as yours. Those judges need to lay off the smurf berry crunch.
Your tallent is amazing and you are an inspiration to us all!!!

Rot said...

Thanks, everybody : )

I'm looking forward to getting the Hollowman back before Halloween so I can make a few modifications to get him ready for my display.

What a joke. Those other "scarecrows" look like something you could pick up for $5.00 at a craft store (no offense to those that made them) Yours is original and just flat out amazing, I cant believe you got 3rd place.
