Space Art Competition #4

WINNERS ANNOUNCED BELOW !

THEME IS: Galaxy

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

When they are allowed, obviously you cannot use the stocks or renders as your entire submission, so the majority of your image should be created in Paint.net.

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 or textures created in another program of any kind.

All images must be submitted to me in a PM.

Do no post your image in this thread !

Do not post your images in your gallery or any other gallery on this site until this comp is over !

I will post your image in the poll, that is the only time your image should be seen before the voting begins.

Do not sign your image or put any kind of identifiable marker or logo in your image that people will link to you.

You may post your image on any other website where you are a member

(i.e. Deviant Art, PdN Fans Forum, Facebook or any other forum or website, just not on this website until the comp has concluded.

Minimum size is 800 X 600. There is no Maximum Size.

NO PLACEHOLDERS! Do not send an entry until it is a finished product. NO WIPS (works in progress) !

No images previously submitted will be allowed.

I reserve the right to add to the rules as people do things to annoy me. (See special rule # 5.)

THEME IS: Galaxy

Theme rules: You are to make an image depicting a Galaxy.

There are three main types of galaxies: Elliptical, Spiral, and Irregular.

It can be like the Milky Way (Spiral) or Irregular like The Large Magellanic Cloud.

For a deeper understanding of Galaxy shape, READ THIS.

NO STOCKS OR RENDERS ! You may however, use another program to create parts of your image

i.e. Apophysis, Gimp, Incendia, Photoshop, etc.

The majority of your image should be made in Paint.net. The use of other programs should be limited to the creation of textures and minor elements of your image.

(Remember, Possum’s have a sixth sense about things like this, do don’t make me hunt you down.

So with that in mind, special rule #5 is in effect for this competition ).

This thread is for DISCUSSION only ! If you want to ENTER this comp, please READ THE ABOVE RULES !

The Entry period for this competition run through Sunday evening August 15th, 2010) at 8:00 p.m., Eastern Daylight Savings Time. All ENTRIES submitted up to that time will be accepted

We have four entries so far. I would like to have more entries for this comp before I put up the poll. I may extend the entry deadline if there is enough interest. So if you are working on a entry and would like more time, or you would like to enter, please send me a PM and let me know how much time you might need.

There should be more publicity with these comps. Maybe something like a banner that always displays on the top of the screen? Like a small, text-only banner.

:|

That's a good idea, but that would be up to the Forum Administration. All of the Comp Hosts have links in their sigs for the comps and some of the winners have displayed their award badges as an avatar when they win or place (the ones for my comps were purposely made to be that size). I have also posted some of my entries in the Pictorium after the comp is over and mentioned that it was my entry in the past comp. I would be happy to hear any other ideas to get more people interested in the comps.

I'm extending the entry period of this comp until Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m. EDST.

I think a text banner with a link would bring tons of traffic...

Here are my guesses for the entries:

1: Falken

2: jerry533482 or pdnnoob

3: j.d.melek or welshblue (what are the stocks?)

4: a new user (50-150 posts)

5: a new user (0-50 posts)

1. welshy/yellowman

2. Falken

3. possum

4. jerry

5. JD

6. absolutely no idea

EDIT: changed my mind about #2. Hi Falken!

EDIT2: changing my guess for #5 as well...jerry maybe?

EDIT3: bleh. I am terrible at this. jerry might have done 4...which means JD did 5 maybe?

to those that may think this means I didn't enter...I'm a bit more mischievous than you think :P

Thanks every one, and congrats for the winners, nice images all of you, thanks to whom voted for me, appreciate it.

@ n d thank you mate, and sorry for being late to respond, there were hundreds of step to create that image, but I will try to simplify it as much as I could, but bear in mind it is not possible to replicate same image exactly.

LFC4EVER ,thanks, that's awesome I am so look forward to see you participating in the competitions.
