It looks like we missed a June challenge this month, so I thought that I would start the July challenge a little early, because it will probably take longer then normal.
Ok, Everyone this month's Challenge is an Idea that brick had a very long time ago, but we never did it.
Everyone that signs up must provide two base images. (These images do not have to be of models they can be of anything at all.) The base images you provide must be in colour and must be photographs. Send your base images to me via e-mail. winterhawk2@shaw.ca
You must sign up by July 3rd.
Once I have all of the base images I will post them for download on part of my website. (Most likely in .zip format to save space) I will provide the exact web address later.
Once you have all of the base images, your challenge is to use a part from as many of the base images as you can to make any picture you want.
The more base pictures you use to make your image the more extra points you will receive. I am trying to work out some sort of prize for this challenge. Stay tuned for details on that.

So sign up already, you know you want too.

Anything at all

I have some pretty bizarre stuff, I don't even mean people.



You want to leave it that open, or curtail it a little? I'm in, either way...

Not _exactly_ my idea, but it has legs as long as enought ppl are brave enought to play.
Chaos theory combined with a deadline... Hmm, could be interesting.

And I like the idea of bizarre stuff as well. Perhaps, since WH is Supreme Being #1 we could contribute more than two base pics and he chooses what goes into the pot. Not very democratic, but works well given time constraints?

First off the prize.
I noticed that the cat was let out of the Bag, about Optical????????s and mine custom avatars. So after talking to Optical, He has been nice enough to let me offer as a prize for winning the monthly challenges: the right to create and have uploaded a custom avatar. If you do not want to create your own custom avatar, I can make one for you. Optical is currently looking into a way to make this avatar private, so that others cannot use it as well. Also winning challenges might become the only way to get a custom avatar (unless, you are a moderator of course. Or you already have one ). So if you want one, be ready to manip something breathtaking and sign up.

Ok, so you guys want some more guidelines then 2-colour photographs.
Well personal I thought that since, you would have to incorporate them into your own pictures as well that would keep them from being too outrageous. I am just looking for non-maniped photographs, preferably high-resolution. That has something in it that can be used for a manip. What type of guidelines do you guys want? What the hell kind of pictures do you all have?
You can feel free to send me as many pictures as you want and then you can let me decide what 2 pictures go into the pot. That is fine. Also please note, that if more people do not sign up then I will probably increase the number of base picture per contestant to 3 or 4 depending on the final number that join.

Scoring will be done on three levels, (please note that although I will be creating a picture I will not be eligible for the prize) You will score 1 point per base picture used in the final product (2 bonus points will be awarded if you manage to use all of the pictures from the pot in your finished work.), You will be scored from 1-10 on overall presentation by everyone involved in the comments section of your finished product and the average of these scores will be added to your final score. Everyone involved will also score you from 1-10 on integration of the base pictures and the average will be added to your score, again in the comments section of the posted work.

That sound good to you guys.

The base pictures are all on my site now.
If the page appears to not be updated click refresh and that should fix it. I am not sure why but my site has been acting weird lately.
I might actually finish an update on it soon. But till then.
Get to work everyone.
On july 3rd, the sign up cut off, if no one else joins I will added in some bonus base pictures. These picture can be use but do not need to be. You will get bonus points for using them. Have fun. Lets see some amazing manips.

I never really thought about that, What do you guys think?
I have a couple of suggestions:
option #1-we use only the pictures provided
option #2-we use the pictures provide and up to two additional images of our own.
option #3-we use as many additional pictures as we want. and add in as many parts from the base pictures as we can.
Lets have a vote. Options one, two, or three guys, what would you like?

Also, Billy has e-mailed me and has signed up for this as well, I will add his base pictures to the pot shortly.

The due date for this challenge will be August 2nd.
Two more days for anyone else to sign up.

Since no one voted. I choose
option #1-we use only the pictures provided.
But as I said before I was going to add in bonus pictures that can be used but are not required.
Billy, sent me 2 pictures but one was Black and white, I have not recieved a replacement Base Picture so I think you are going to have to sit this one out as the sign up deadline is today.
I will add in the bonus pictures today.
On your mark, get set, GO!!!

out of order
Remember to click refresh on your browser if the page does not look updated. Again not sure why, but it works.
Bonus point rules: If you do use a bonus picture or part of a bonus picture you will recieve bonus points. In the event of a tie In the regular points and scoring described below. The person with the most bonus points will win.
Any questions? Does every one understand?

Sorry I was out of town, Dude, but I would have voted for #1 anyway, so, way to go!


I do want some clarification about bonus image points, however. From your website:
Quote:
Scoring will be done on three levels, (please note that although I will be creating a picture I will not be eligible for the prize) You will score 1 point per base picture used in the final product (2 bonus points will be awarded if you manage to use all of the pictures from the pot in your finished work.), You will be scored from 1-10 on overall presentation by everyone involved in the comments section of your finished product and the average of these scores will be added to your final score. Everyone involved will also score you from 1-10 on integration of the base pictures and the average will be added to your score, again in the comments section of the posted work.


So that's
2-9, or 12 for base image use
1-10 * 6, (the number of artists) for overall presentation
1-10 * 6 for integration, whatever the hell that means

So, how many points for bonus images? Some of them are very tempting...

Ok so I will try to explain this as best I can.

You get 1 point for each user submitted base image you use. If you use all ten images you will get an extra 2 points for maximum of 12 points from this part of the competition.

The next two parts each participant will vote on the other participates picture on a scale of one to ten for two separate scores, One for overall presentation (how much you like the picture, as a picture) and integration (how well you think the artist put the base images into the finished picture, do they look like they just slapped them in or do they look like part of the picture). Of course you will not vote on your own work. So each picture should get 4 votes on the 2 categories. When the votes are in the average score will be taken and added into the total score. Max 10 point per category (20 points max).

Max scoring will be 32 points.

In the event of a tie, the artist that incorporated the most Bonus pictures into his work will be declared the winner and will win the prize. You can keep the prize for yourself or give it away to someone else.

Remember, you can only use pictures that you find on the challenge site. No other base pictures are allowed. I will subtract 5 points from your total score for each picture used from an outside source.

Any questions?
Any complaints?

Get to work

Winterhawk ???????? I think I just confused myself

Well, Max didn't back down on the Crossover Challenge, so if you want to extend this instead, doesn't bother me.
Although I have started already...



Fear, I will strike fear into their hearts...
