Competition Ideas


Recommended Posts

Jim you spawned my interest.

Actually, the entries to Fark quite often look like low-brow Surrealism. Rafroller skinned his car with what looked liked an orange rind. So why not? If he could of put it in a different environment, I think he would have. See them hanging in a tree?

I think we would use more of the tools/plugins available and therefore be more funner. :lol:

What would make it cool is for one of the rules stating that you must use pyrochilds excellent Random Effect plug-in, somewhere during the creation of your entry. It would be easy to spot any entry that claims to use the effect (and didn't) because of how random (hence the name) the plug-in is :)

Nitenurse, There's a Random Effect Image Game in The Grand Theory of Everything.

The Images are a lot different from most I think.

I'm not talking about a game, I mean using it as part of the rules of a comp, the rule would state you have to use the random effect as part of your final entry.

Plus that "game" has not had an entry since September 2011.

I like the idea of just limiting the time (i.e. I know I can create a dished button in about 10 sec flat).

The purpose of this comp would be to lock down your particular technique 100%.

Think that the steps used should form part of the entry. Hence the ability to reproduce the creation is a must.

I read through most of this thread, has some really great ideas for activities and contests. :D Forgive me if someone already mentioned this idea but how about a "Best Paint.net Wallpaper Contest" or just a regular "Best Wallpapers Contest" that offers users a great way to express their unique creative styles while also promoting Paint.net in the process.

:D

How about a plugin-based competition where you are given a short list of plugins, tools*, adjustments, effects, etc that are allowed in your entry as well as a theme (no stocks images unless provided by the competition host). Basic anti-alias plugin always allowed.

Theme examples:

-create a planet using only the tools menu and layers. Minimum image dimensions: 100x100

-design a signature with only the text tool, clouds, and polar inversion. Image dimensions restricted to 150x500

-make a desktop wallpaper with only the line tool, and layers. Minimum image dimensions: 800x600

-edit (insert image) using only ___# effects of your choice. Image dimensions restricted to original image size

-create an avatar in six steps (screenshot of history window required)

...and so forth.

*I added tools to the restrictions because we have people like aislin who can whip up a crazy piece of art using only the brush, line, and paintbucket :PSelection and move tool should always be allowed.

After GoonFella's challenge to me of converting a PS tutorial to PDN I thought it could be a good idea for a competition.  

 

The host chooses the first tutorial, subsequent winners of the best translation of the chosen tut etc choose the next ?

 

Something different on picking the best image theme ?
