Brick and I came up with this Idea a Long, Long time ago in the shout box.

Here is the basic Idea: After you sign up, another member of this group having seen your entire body of work, suggests a manip or part of the manip that would challenge an area they might need to work on.

For example: Some one might challenge me to work on a metallic character, Since my metal skills are a little weak.

Actually, I think the biggest area you need improvement in is wrinkles. Really, you hardly ever add them in your stuff.

I'm in. I've been looking for a new project all week and finding nothing that inspires me. Gimme something to do! However, please bear in mind that I'm only using Corel photo/paint 7, nothing near as fancy as photoshop.

Corel photo/paint isn????????t that bad of a program??????? especially if you can make sweet beautiful art with it. Not to mention that I like the idea of having a little help with coming up with ideas for new images. So, this is going to be a ???????homework??????? assignment that targets a member????????s weak spot. Do you think that people want to work on an image that is based on their weak spots. Also, I have been asked to do a tutorial on a few things??????? do we need members to post tutorials that will help in this ???????quest???????? Tutorials are great??????? but??????? it takes time out of our images. I tried and tried to make a tutorial on metal/chrome but couldn????????t come up with the words to explain how I did it. It is tough work. BUT??????? on top of that, I am game for this little endeavor! It sounds like a lot of fun???????

Ok here goes. first round of homework.

Daruma - I think you need work on your lighting. I would like to see you do a picture with some really dramatic lighting in it. Maybe something with multiple light sources with different coloured lights would be nice.

JrMcDeath - Dude it was hard thinking for something for you because you kick some serious Butt. But here goes, I noticed in all your pictures they were pin-up types, I would like to see an action shot or a over the top display of powers from you. Some really crazy special effects.

DK - are you still checking?

Batmic - You are dam hard cause you have done everything and you have done it well but.. Nope still got nothing for you. I will keep thinking on it.

Brick - this was mostly your Idea and you did not sign up I find that Funny.

Feel free to challenge each other and me as well guys. Also anyone else that wants to sign up feel free to jump on the bandwagon.

I think this is a great ideal.
The whole point of being in this group is to learn how to make better Manips. So yes you can count me in. I can use all the help I can get.

Well, of course they all seem to be Pinups. I don????????t like wasting my time creating 3D backgrounds...and I don????????t like trying to slap my girls on some crappy background. I am in it for the ladies. I have notice that everyone does good work and then their images go on to a low res image that shoots the manip in the foot. HEY... I am just as guilty. That is why I developed my style. Dig? BUT... I will accept that challenge. I have 12 DVD????????s full of images... Yes, that is approximately 56 GIG of images to go thru and see what I can slap together. However, I am in the middle of two ???????Pin-ups??????? so, this challenge will have to wait. I unfortunately I am a linear worker so I will have to finish these, in order, before moving on... But, you have given me some direction...

thanks man, i feel really flattered by that. i had a quick look through some of your past pics and your stuff really is excellent but what i found was a distinct lack of capes. i would like to see you do a pic where the cape is the star, maybe a Spawn(the tattered look would be a real challenge) or Superman, or better yet a Magneto, that's one i have seen in a while.

Challenge accepted Batmic.

Tazman - Your highlights and shading seem to be a little inconsistent in you work sometimes you get it spot on and other times it just seems off. I challenge you to do a manip of a character with a strong directional light source so that the highlights and shadow will both be predominant in the picture (kind of like my Metamorpho or Shadowman).

Brick - Hey buddy remember when we were originally talking about this and I told you I was going to make you do a all chainmail character, well... I am not, but I am going to give you Metal Work. Try a all metal character, I know you did colosus a while back, But I would like to see what you can do now.

I have an Idea I like, but...

It seems like alot of (movie related) sites have been forced to pull thier Iron Man content. Do you think tom cruse would rain lawers down on us if I did Nichole Kidman as iron man?

I for one, am always out to improve myself, and love the whole experimentation process. Some advice and direction from my peers is a great idea. I would like to sign up for this, but I don't know what kind of deadline there is. I tend to work a bit at a time on a manip and that usually means about a month per. Plus I am trying to finish a project that I started a loong time ago (remember EVA, check out HFAC).
So, depending on your timeframe, count me in.
I really want to hear what areas people think I can inprove on, and if its the same as my own: backgrounds. If it is, then great, because that was going to be my focus for the EVA project. If there are other ideas, then even better, but they will have to wait until I finish with EVA. It is certainly plausible to beleive that I have more than a few areas I can improve on.

Here's an idea I'd like to see someone take on. Paul Teutle Sr., Paul Teutle Jr., Mikey Teutle, and Vinnie (The Crew from American Chopper) as the Avenger's foes - The Wrecking Crew! (Obviously for a silly casting call.)

I thought everyone had seen my Triumph as Bathound manip. My self inflicted homework is the cover to A-Next #4. After that I have a couple other, subtle, Casting Calls to do.
