WOTW # 21 ROUND 2 !!! Giant Invasion.

NEW VOTING RULES !

YOU MAY VOTE FOR MORE THAN ONE ENTRY ! TOP ENTRY WINS ! !

SUDDEN DEATH OVERTIME !

GO TO THE DISCUSSION THREAD FOR MORE INFO !

Round 2 Rules are the same as Round 1, except you will need to PM me your entry.

You cannot enter the same image as you entered in Round 1. ;)

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

All images must be submitted as a thumbnail link to the full size image. DO NOT POST FULL SIZE IMAGES!

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.

When Theme Rules allow, you must post a link to any stocks, renders, images or parts of images

you did not create in Paint.net, i.e. fractals created in a fractal generator program.

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. As stated in the WOTW rules, you must provide a link to any and all stocks or renders used.

Special rule # 5. Do not anger the Possum.

WOTW # 21 Giant Invasion. - Theme Rules. Please read this !

Theme is "Giant Invasion"

Remember all those B grade movies in the 1950’s and 60’s where they had giant creatures attacking cities and towns? Giant Mantis, Spiders, Possums, Lizards, Moths, running amok and creating havoc for people all over the world. Yeah, that’s what I want !

You are to make an image that shows GIANT whatever(s) in a cityscape, landscape seascape or wherever you want. You can use any kind of animal or creature you want.

You can use any amount of stock photos you want. You can add lettering, explosions, or any other effects, or anything else you want. This is all about the GIANT things !

Do not post your entries to this competition in this thread. If you have questions, comments or general comments about this comp,

post them here.

Entry period for this competition will run through 8:00 p.m. Tuesday evening (July 6th 2010), U.S. Eastern Daylight Savings Time.

All submissions entered up to this time will be allowed.

If you have any questions, post them in this thread or PM Possum Roadkill. I would be happy to help anyone interested.

Lol, world of the worlds is funny. What was I thinking. My artwork is still noobish for a gallery. I'm still practicing with shape3d, clouds, and blurs.

Man !!!! I love what you guys are doing ! These are really great images !

I hope I get the time to work on something. We are in a budget crisis at work and I have been tapped to get everyone together to come up with the ideas on how to make up the budget shortfalls before the Council starts cutting jobs and employees. Stress level is at 110%. I hate politicians, I hate them so very very much. Don't worry though, I won't let that stop me from keeping these comps going. Keep those great images coming !

Man, PR, you definitely seem like you need a break. My best wishes of luck to you.

Don't say that! Your "noobish" work is 10 times better than my starting work. Your concepts are also really cool, too. I think a lot of people would benefit from you making a gallery. You have to make some tutorials on some of the textures you used in S3D.

Thanks ! It's will be over in a couple of weeks. Then in July we get to start on the 2011 budget where we have to cut another 600 thousand out of the budget. I'm so very very tired right now. They voted last night for our building to work 4 10 hour days and off three days. This is really cutting into my PdN time people !

Translated, it reads:

Tenants, please do not store honey in your apartments. :)

Now, that's funny, I don't care who you are ! :lol:

@ Possum Roadkills entry

so the possum is not a stock? :P

There's a possum in there? :lol: Yes, I forgot about having my picture in there.

Looks like I've put on a few pounds.

The explosions are stock as well. They are as they appear in the image.

I cut them out of an image a long time ago and no longer have the complete image.

Oh come on ! Where the heck are all the people who gave me a hard time because I didn't allow enough stock images in this comp? This is your chance ! This may very well be the coolest theme for the WOTW ever ! I'm going to extend the entry period until Thursday night. I better see more entries by then or it will be a cold day in Possumville before you get to see stocks in this comp again!

Will do, but does mine qualify?

Maybe the mods could add a simple box at the top of the page: "enter in one of this week's competitions!"

NEW VOTING RULES ! YOU MAY VOTE FOR MORE THAN ONE ENTRY ! TOP THREE ENTRIES QUALIFY FOR ROUND 2 ! SUDDEN DEATH OVERTIME ! GO TO THE DISCUSSION THREAD FOR MORE INFO !

OK, here is what I want to do. Since this was so much fun, and we had such clever and imaginative entries, you can vote for more than one entry. The top three vote getters will go on to the next round, the SUDDEN DEATH OVERTIME ROUND. The three top entrants will have four days to create a new entry for submission or re-enter their first found submission for the next vote. The winner of the 2nd round will have not only to honor to choose the next theme, but also design the banner for the WOTW Comps.

Should we PM you our vote or post it in the entry-topic?

No voting is done in the normal way. The only difference is you can vote for more than one entry if you choose to do so.

OK we have a problem. Here is how the voting stood at 7:00 p.m.

Pdnnoob 10 votes

Sarkut 5 votes

Epic Epiphany 5 votes

Possum Roadkill 5 votes

Barbieq 4 votes

JD Melek 4 votes

Soooooo, we have 3 tied for second and 2 tied for third. How about this, I'll drop out (I'm on vacation this week and will be away from my computer a lot) and we'll let the remaining 5 slug it out in the next round? Winner take all!

Here is what I want to do. Please PM me with your next round entry and I'll put up the poll Tuesday night after 8:00 p.m. We are going to use the secret ballot so no one knows who made which image. So don't tell anyone what you made and don't post it in any of the forums here. OK? Ready, set, go !!!!
