Oh hohoh hoh! My forte.

 

Admittedly, I rushed this poster, so I should probably make a better version later, but for now here's my entry:

 

 

 

"Undiscovered cavern"

[I know, I know, what an unoriginal name]

 

EDIT: I've taken time to polish up my entry a bit. I'll leave my old version up just in-case people like it more than my newer version.

VERSION 2:

I have an un-cropped copy of this entry, so if it doesn't fit correctly, I can crop it to be larger.

 

OLD VERSION:

C9abFV8.jpg

 

This poster is a recreation of a poster I made a while back (which itself was inspired by LRR's menu music "ATMOSDEL"), with the idea of showing "Rock Raiders bursting through a wall to find a new cavern" (I guess you could say that aspect was inspired by the 1st "Lava Monsters" LRR cutscene).

Half time and only one entry so far? Hmmm... maybe I should crack SFM open, it has been a while.

Found some time to make one as well!
I tried making something fitting the dark & mysterious vibe without it being too stylized. Hope you like it!

Ooh this is a neat idea. Loving the artwork @Ben24x7 and @MineTimelapser, I'm always looking for more backgrounds! Here's my submission that I cooked up in a couple of hours, it's rough but sadly I'm rather short on time at the moment.

 

I Think I'm Gonna Need a Bigger Truck

Inspiration... I like Chief, I like energy crystals, and I've wanted to make a cavern scene using actual LRR textures for a long time now. I also thought it would be a nice opportunity to try out some surface wear textures. Originally I'd intended to make a team photo, but as far as I can tell LDraw doesn't have Jet's helmet (needed to import into Blender) so I came up with this idea instead.

Original 4K PNG can be sent to ya if you want it Lord merCy.

Well, I'm not sure if its too late for me to post this, and it likely doesn't fit the criteria (of looking like an LRR poster), but I think I'll post this for fun anyway:

 

"Sea of... *idle* "

This one is a recreation of an old Garry's mod menu background, albeit with a crowd of idling Rock Raiders (their faces based on Arthuriel's "Insane Raiders" portrayal of Rock Raiders going into "Idle Mode"). 

 

So... yeah, not as serious as my first entry, but it was fun to make.

Competition Winner!

@JimbobJeffers

 

For your awesome entry: "I Think I'm Gonna Need a Bigger Truck".  Your background captured the old feel of the game, which the staff really liked as well as the attention to detail on Chief's texture finishing was noticed too. Well done! Send me your 4k version.

 

Honourable Mentions

Well done to @Ben24x7 and @MineTimelapser for your entries to the competition. All 3 of your backgrounds were great and honestly picking a winner was a hard choice as each had its own style and did it well. Ben24x7, your choice of an animated styling is nothing short of amazing. With the special effects and minifig emotions gives it a feel like it's a scene right out of a short movie. Would love to see more in that style! MineTimeLapser, your background captures the original LEGO set perfectly adding a layer of dark moody mystery, a great choice!

No doubt however people have downloaded all of these for their personal backgrounds for their pc or the like, including myself because they're all such high-quality.

 

Well done everyone!

P.S Keep an eye out for another competition soon.

Wahey, thank you! Great idea for a competition, as you said Ben and MTL created some awesome art which I'll be using as backgrounds too. :D
