PS.com SOTW COMPETITION

635 Replies 9,412 Views Created 24-02-2008
PS.com SOTW COMPETITION Righto, this is the new SOTW thread, let the discussion thread be used only to discuss the next theme/render whatever that will be chosen. The different variations of the comp are: Theme - makers have to create a peice of work based on a chosen them. The themes selected will always be very open to interpretation, which lets the artist explore their imagination, and the signatures that come out of it are very different. Render - makers are given a percific render/image that they have to include in their work somehow. For example, if the render was of Kratos from God of War, the creator could make a GOW sig, or maybe a sig based on ferocious characters, or even manipulate him so much that you cant even tell what it was in the first place! The possibilites really are endless. Quote - Noone has picked up on this one yet, but i thought a good idea would be to have some sort of quote from anything at all (could be from Churchill, game character... whatever) and make a signature somehow to fit it. This option really does let the imagination run wild i think, which is why i like it. Inside the discussion thread, we have also decided on a schedule for the competition, and how and when things will be happening: Sunday-Sunday - The competition begins, the theme/render/quote is stated. This thread is where it will be posted, and so people can discuss ideas, ask questions etc about their work or whatever. Anyone can enter and at whatever time they want, all that is needed to be done is for the finnished work to be PM'd to myself to be checked and posted into a thread for the voting to commence Monday-Saturday - Voting commences while we all decide on the next theme/render/quote inside the discussion thread Sunday - Winner is crowned and results posted in a thread in Fan Art acting as a sort of archive of winners. It then repeats and repeats, slowly building up a strong archive of winners and sig creators to get their hands on their own space inside the winners thread. Now the drips and draps of it, the agreed restrictions/regulations for the competition are:
  • File Size - No Limit
  • Signature Size - 500x200 Max

Crikey, I noticed that the last post was 2010 but wasn't expecting the last post before that to be 2009! And it looks like this use to be a very popular contest... let me know if you fancy this being started up again, the one thing I will guess is that given people working more hours and money being tighter etc these days that it might be better as SOTMonth rather than week.

 

Get in contact, let us know your thoughts :)

Dunno if SOTW is feasible, but I'd definitely be up for SOTM - the fan art forum could use a bit more traffic though :D

I'll wait for (hopefully) more replies and at some point possibly PM some of the users from within this thread perhaps.

 

Thanks for the feedback btw :)

I'd be up for taking part in this if it was to start running again.

 

I do agree that per week might be a bit short though.

I just brought this up, will get a new thread and rules etc up tomorrow. Pretty much everything will be the same but we'll do it once a month instead and run it as a proper event etc... I'll work on this tomorrow as I said, until then more feedback is welcome :D
