WOTW # 33 Microscopic World !


WOTW Comp Rules: All submissions must be created in Paint.net with the exception of renders and stock photos when allowed.

Minimum size is 800 X 600. There is no maximum size, but keep in mind that people will want to look at your image
and if it takes too long to load, they may not look at it.
Please try to make your image in the proportion of a Wallpaper, because this is a Wallpaper comp. (Duh!)
NO PLACEHOLDERS Do not post an entry until it is a finished product. NO WIPS !
Obviously you cannot use the stocks or renders as your entire submission, so the majority of your image should be
created in Paint.net.
Special rule # 5. Do not anger the Possum.


WOTW # 31 - Microscopic World !

Theme Rules. Please read this !


Theme is " Microscopic World !"

The Theme Idea
You are to make a wallpaper that depicts life in the microscopic world.
That can include nanobots, viruses, bacterium, crystalline structures, or anything else that you can imagine would be not visible to the naked eye.
You must use Paint.Net but you may also use other graphics programs as well. You may not use stock images or renders.

This comp will run for TWO Weeks !

DO NOT Post your entries in this thread. PM your entries to me and I will post them as they come in.

Entry period for this competition will run through 8:00 p.m. Saturday evening (July 9th, 2011), U.S. Eastern Time.
All submissions entered up to this time will be allowed.
If you have any questions, post them in the Discussion Thread or PM Possum Roadkill. I would be happy to help anyone interested.

Erm, dumb question I'm sure, but what are the usual proportions for a wallpaper? I've never paid attention before. Is it something like 1079 x 726, or some other random number I can't think of??

lol, they vary so much. i make mine to 1440x900, because thats what my 19" widescreen uses. 800x600, 1024x768, 1152x864, 1280x768, 1280x960, and 1280x1024 are also listed as optional sizes for screen resolution on my computer. but you dont have to stick to those sizes. anything near them will work. wallpapers can be centered and/or strecthed, among other options. the main point of this rule is to make sure entries are large enough and shaped to fit a screen, else you would have some joker turning in a banner or such, i.e. 600x2400. or turning in something too small.

MTN is right...break up the components. Save often. I had a great set of crash logs until I got a new pc.

Since I've been out sick all last week and only got back to getting on a computer today, I would like to keep this comp's entry period open until the weekend. Is everyone OK with that?

I certainly hope more people enter this comp. It's really not a hard theme because stuff in the microscopic world look so abstract and unreal it opens up things to a wide interpretation.
