Competition Ideas


Recommended Posts

Q:  Why do the winners get to choose?  It's kind of self-replicating, like Zombies...

 

Is there another mechanism we can inject occasionally to allow a broader spectrum of competition selection?

I enjoyed this tut because the finished demo was not difficult to code from the .pdn layers.  Actually started writing it up as a tutorial because there is nothing available here like this.

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 :P Selection and move tool should always be allowed.

 

I like this idea with an added thought of using little known plugins.

Such as Droste: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/7122-escher-droste-plugin/

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 ?

Do we need to test each translated entry to make sure it is viable/workable?

DrewDale......Nice. :smile:

If it were to go ahead as a competition I think the fun would be how people interpret the PS steps into PDN.  That said I'm sure some would be difficult to do.  But the fun will be in the trying ?

Having just read your post on page 10 here, I understand now how it would work, read a Photoshop tutorial and then try to replicate it in PDN ? Sounds like a sweet idea. I would give it my best shot, it would be an interesting challenge :)

 

I was going to ask santa for windows 8, but now have it, so apart from driving lessons and a whole host of vanity products, I don't think I need to ask / beg for anything else :lol: (please note, that is subject to change daily)

How about a component competition ?

 

Someone (the host to start off) posts one or more .png files of something,  then we create either a sig or an image / wallpaper using what has been supplied in our own way and style. It could be a wood texture and a shape 3D object, it could be anything really. The winner of each competition would then create the next challenges components. I think it would be a great way of working with each other and also good to see just how we all think.

 

The host could have the entries sent to them by PM so there would be no sneaky previews of who has done what with the components and then post all the entries at the end of the deadline :)

 

Just a thought. :)

I like the sound of that Sasha. I think it would be a great way of manipulating each others creations and perhaps making something that the OP would not have even thought of doing with his / her files. You could (for example) even have components sent by the winner and two runners up. I could imagine some great ideas created using some of the talent that is on here :)

I think that would be a really good way to interact with people on here, three ideas, multiple end results :)
