WOTW # 23 Theme is Bubbles.

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 # 23 Bubbles. - Theme Rules. Please read this !

You may make the bubbles out of any texture you create, soap bubbles, air bubbles in water or other liquids, or solids turned to liquid.

You are to make a background for your image that can be wherever you want. It can be a landscape or interior, abstract, space, or anything else.

The BUBBLES MUST BE MADE COMPLETELY IN Paint.net. YOU MAY NOT USE STOCK IMAGES OF BUBBLES.

You may however, use stock images for any other part of your image including the background.

You can add lettering, explosions, animals or any other elements or effects you want.

Image dimension restrictions: min 800x600 max 1600x1200

OK I decided last night with only four entries submitted to extend the entry period. I'm glad I did, because I had an entry waiting for me this morning. So far I think we have some beautiful images, but I'd really like to see more. How long do you want the entry period extended?

I won't be able to join to competition. Whether that is fortunate or unfortunate is up to you to decide ;) . Anyhow, more entries would be nice, so I'd suggest you extend it to Monday so people have the weekend to work on their entries.

Also, I like this image size restriction idea...it give "wallpaper of the week" more meaning ^^ I think we should do that to every WOTW competition from now on...please?

Not everyone has a letterbox style monitor so the aspect ratio you have requested would not fit everyone's screen. I don't mind doing it this time since you chose the theme. However, I will add to the rules that this is a Wallpaper comp and the image size should be made so that it would fit a wide variety of screens. Sorry to hear that you won't be entering. I always enjoy your images. Hopefully on the next round you will rejoin us.

Possum: 1900x1200 is more common than 1600x1200 - I think you should change it.

I don't mind adding that size to the acceptable image size list, but like I said in the previous comment, not everyone has the same screen size. I work on four different computers from time to time and all of them have a different screen size. The computer I use the most of the time for Paint.net has a screen size of 1440X900, so resizing a 1900X1200 image would still be a little off for my laptop. I think as long as we just have a general rule that the image should be at common screen sizes for use as a wallpaper, we'll be just fine.

Are entries going to get disqualified if they don't meet the ratio aspects ?

Your's will be. =O:P:lol: :lol: No, I'm not going to be that picky. I'm just glad that people take the time to make an image for the comp. I think we have enough rules as it is.

ha! I guessed possum and welshy's entries correctly! Gold-ish effects in JD's entries threw me off...thought that was barbieq's entry. Didn't expect oma to join O.O Had no clue who made barbieq and yellowman's entries. Nice work, everybody! I'll see if I can join the next one ;)

Congratulations Welshy, Yellowman, Possum, Oma!

I started an entry but didn't finish in time. Or chickened out after I saw the other entries. :/

I don't think I guessed a single one right. It would be fun to have a comp just to guess who did what - match the work with the artist. (I am not volunteering to host it. :| )

You know, that would be fun. I think I might have an advantage since I have foreknowledge of each comp, I'm getting used to seeing who does what in the various comps and the style they use. Try to guess who made what image in the SAC comp and post it in the discussion thread. Let's see how good you are. ;)
