[SOTW Discussion] Talk inside...

Recommended Posts

In my humble opinion, I think we may consider sticking to Red's plugin as the main one to use, since it was the first suggested plugin when the contest began. Now, since the use of other plugins is also allowed, we can combine a bit of BoltBait's plugin and another bit of Red's plugin and then we would have our objects beveled enough for the contest :P Methinks it makes sense this way hi.gif

This week you're challenged to design and create a signature using Three shapes and

Three colours, (any three colours you like and any three shapes you like too)

 

Oooh! I like this idea. Truly.

Great entries and interpretation.

Apologies for not competing in a theme I chose but unexpected thingss, mainly getting pushed off the road by some idiot on their phone and the resulting hassles got in the way of fun

Due to the lack of entries in this weeks sig of the week (#148 Text Elaborated / Distorted) The deadline for entering has been extended to Friday March 25th. 7PM UK Time. I hope to see a few more participants by then.

Thanks Barbie

 

A few months of recovery from a broken leg and a shattered arm and wrist. Hopefully I can can start using a mouse again in a few weeks.

Could have been a lot worse.  On the plus side the only time I've been glad to have an unmarked police car behind me is that it was witnessed and the courts will do their bit and ban the idiot for years.

My solicitor is already hitting his insurance company and hopefully they'll go after him for the payout  :lightning:

 

I wonder if I can claim compensation for lack of using Paint.Net  :lol:

I had no idea it was that serious! - That's a rotten thing to happen -  I hope your recovery goes well and you get decent compensation.

Oh Si that is just terrible. Well I am glad that you are on the mend & the culprit has been caught & hopefully will not be able to do it again. I'd definitely go for damages for not being able to PDN!

I hope you guys don't mind, but I went with an idea based off of the glass pane tutorial. I hope it counts as decorative glass. :)

 

It certainly counts. Most any design based on glass is fine. The reference to lynxster4's stained glass tutorial was just a suggestion.

I hope the deadline for the SOTW "decorative glass" theme can be extended. Perhaps there will be a few more entries. I might even add another. It's tax season in the USA, so some of us have a bit less free time than usual.

Indeed, yes, this weeks SOTW (Decorative Glass) has now been extended to give more entrants a chance to.......enter. Entry time closes on Friday April 15 at 7Pm (UK Time) link to timezone conversion can be found in the entry thread. 5 Top class entries so far, would love to see more, it may even give me the chance to finish cutting the grass and doing something more important, like playing around with PDN :D

A new rule to be added for future SOTW comps.

8.  Don’t add links to larger versions of your signature, your entry should be voted on based on the size layed out in rule #1. Please keep larger versions of your work for your gallery.

Once again, not many entries in the SOTW comp (driving licence) I have extended the closing date to be 7PM on Friday 6 May. (World time conversion in the entry thread) Perhaps more people can join in.

Thanks @Drew.  Yes, this is becoming a trend.  Soon it will have to be renamed SOTF (Fortnight) :lol: .

When creating an entry in the SOTW comp, can people please be mindful of copyright and / or using images found on sites such as Google.

 

Rule #5 in the comp entry thread clearly points this out.

 5. Don’t violate copyright laws with found images; links to source images would be courteous.

 

Blatant copying of obvious images is not what this comp is all about, any entries that are basically ripping off 100% someone's creation will not be put forward into the voting stage. It would be nice to think almost all entries are original (most times they are)  So once again please provide links to any images used.

 

Thanks

As for my first entry: No I did not shoot and create the fire apple image that I animated, though I'm sure I could if I wanted to. AFAIK it's not copyright, it is open source. It was one of the many excellent Desktop Backgrounds that came with my Linux distro. I can't provide any links to the image, but here is a link to the distros for anyone interested: https://www.linuxmint.com/I highly recommend those distros to anyone interested.

 

Whether or not you want to submit it for voting is your call. In fact you can omit all my entries for voting, I really just don't care. I submit what I think has some artistic value and don't want to offend anyone. Therefore I won't be submitting any more entries in future contests.    

 

Good luck to all.

Dipstick, keep your shirt on...

 

I have an image that I cannot find the link for as it was one downloaded ages ago & I had lost the link. I just made reference to it.

 

What you wrote above about the source of your image was really useful information to other users & would be nice if you edited your entry to include it. Your entry is rather clever with the apple & the animation. 

 

The entry by Gillfelis however is exactly what DrewDale was talking about. It will not be included.

Exactly. Thank you barbieq. 

 

If you wish to no longer take part, that is entirely up to you dipstick. Feel free to remove your post's in the entry thread if you like. 

Sorry you feel that way about something not even directed at you.
