Bow and arrow contest

Postby wfan » Sat May 29, 2010 5:36 am

To start off... this is my first contest ever, so it may be pretty bad. :crazy:

I need you to make a bow and arrow and make it rather easy to use or just plain WOW.

I will judge it on:

How easy it is. 30%
How WOW it is. 30%
How FAR it goes.30%
If i can TELL its a bow by looking at it. 10%

Penaltys are:

If its Automatic. -10%
If it doesn't leave the bow. -20%
Lazers, Rockets, Explosives, and such are not allowed. -20%
Just a blank place OR something that doesn't relate to a bow. -70%
If there is any cheating. -5000%

You can use anything, but again... make it look like a bow!

and start anyway you want.

65% for that?
No offense Under Ground but wfan do some fucking research, thats not even a bow. Bows get their power from the wood bending, not the string.
Stupid Contest is now stupid. Which is sad because i wanted to make an entry.

bows also get the power from the string, but it's barely noticeable, to the point on which wood is better. this could be achieved by increasing alot the spring strength/constant
