WOTW # 36 Grid Gradient Abstract

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

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.

Please try to make your image in the proportion of a Wallpaper, because this is a Wallpaper comp. (Duh!)

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.

Special rule # 5. Do not anger the Possum.

# 36 Grid Gradient Abstract !

Theme Rules. Please read this !

Theme is " Grid Gradient Abstract !"

The Theme Idea:

You are to make a wallpaper of an abstract using the Grid Gradient plugin by Pyrochild.

You can download the plugin from my Mediafire account at the link below.

http://www.mediafire.com/?y7pz2ieyi8o5p

You may add any other elements to your entry that you choose as long as you use the plugin as a part of your entry.

I urge you to experiment with the plugin and try it in conjunction with other plugins. It's really a very versatile little tool. Enjoy !

You must use Paint.Net but you may also use other graphics programs as well. You may not use stock images or renders.

This comp will run for ONE Week !

DO NOT Post your entries in this thread. PM your entries to me and I will post them as they come in.

Entry period for this competition will run through 8:00 p.m. Saturday evening ( Septmeber 3rd, 2011), U.S. Eastern Time.

All submissions entered up to this time will be allowed.

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

The link to the download site is broken

I tried to download it from this thread instead but got this message from NORTON, is there any way to work around? It doesn't let me to download it:

Send me your email address and I'll send you a copy of the .dll

A pretty nifty plug-in BTW :)

I see we can't use stock images. But can we use photos we've personally taken? I've got some that I'd probably have a hard time proving they aren't stock, but I'd love to use them anyway, if we can.

EDIT: Nevermind, I see it says "abstract". A photo would hardly be abstract. Sorry, lol

Damn, I didn't read it properly either as I have an element that is partly a photo. Back to the drawing board then, literally!

Not sure why the link was broken, I copied it from the original link in the WOTW Theme discussion thread. It's fixed now.

You can get this kind of warning from an antivirus like Norton because the file is a dll. You would have gotten the same kind of error message if it had been a zip file. I think you can trust Pyrochild, maybe not me, but Pyro for sure.

Thank you very much Possum Roadkill, absolutely mate, I do trust you and Pyrochild as well, I did download it actually after disabling NORTON, I just liked to discuss the problem here so people would feel comfortable to download it if the got same problem.

Very good point ! I still don't know what I did wrong when I re-posted the link. Who knows, I can mess up a train wreck, so it was obviously something I did and not my computer. What's that saying, PEBKAC, Problem exists between keyboard and chair? Yes, certainly operator error!

best work around-- get rid of norton, download microsoft security essentials instead-- will get a message about not running it after you download-- but you dont want to run it anyway-- you want to copy it and paste it into the pdn effects file, so.....

I have extended the entry period. You can still enter something you've been working on !

When does voting start?

Sunday night

I hope Possum didn't get sick again. :(

No, some things came up and life got in the way....

I was thinking the same thing myself. Most unlike him.

I have not been myself for some time now....

It all goes back a few weeks when I was abducted by a mad genetic scientist researching hibernation in mammals for deep space flight. He thought that maybe the possum's unique ability to "play dead" and fall into a near comatose state might be the answer to his research. It took the security force from my multi-national corporation a couple of weeks to locate me and formulate a rescue plan. In the meantime, I was working on my own plan of escape. I "played dead" and fooled the guards at the facility where I was being held into thinking I was unconscious. When they came in my cage to check on me, I bit them and scampered to the nearest exit. I fled into a nearby woods where I hid out eating roots, grubs, and berries to survive. Apparently some of the berries I ingested were slightly toxic and I wandered around in the woods for over a week in a hallucinogenic state. When I finally came to my senses, I found myself in a dumpster in a nearby town cornered by a pack of stray dogs. I was rescued and taken in by a kindly retired veterinarian who nursed me back to health. My security force finally located me again and returned me to my home in the woods. I'm still experiencing the after effects of the wild berries I consumed, but I should be back to normal in a few weeks. I just hope my fur stops glowing in the dark so I can get a good nights sleep.
