Default Rules and Discussion

Theme

Time Lapse

Times passes for everyone and everything, but sometimes some things stay the same. The task is to depict one location, imaginary or real, in a set of two images. Given the exact same viewpoint, depict that location at two different times. The change in condition is up to you….night to day, sunny to rainy, present day to millennia later. Some examples:

Monet: morning and rain




Sparth/Nicholas Bouvier: glory and ruin




Focus will be on treatment of techniques used in environments, including perspective, atmospheric perspective, scale, etc., as well as a sense of consistency from one time to the other.



Requirements

•You will be working alone for this contest; no teams.

•You may do more than one submission, but they will be judged as separate submissions and you may only have one in the top three.

•Entries must be suitable for a PG-13 audience meaning no porn or extreme violence.

•Previously posted or old artwork will not be allowed.

•Entries may be in pencil, ink, computer graphics, paint, etc. with one exception: NO PHOTO EDITS. The contest will emphasize your ability to render, and not just your ability to compose with premade images.

•The file size must not exceed 400kb size limit per image. This means each submission will be two images of 400kb maximum.

•Moderators reserve the right to disqualify any entry if it does not meet the theme requirements and/or if it violates any of the rules.

Submissions

Post links to your submission in this thread:
http://www.polykarbonbbs.com/showthr...968#post368968

All comments in the submission thread will be deleted so please no comments in that thread.

Deadline

Entries for this contest must be posted by 11:59:59 PM (PST) Sunday night, August 9th, 2009.

Judging

Entries will be judged on relation to theme, skill, and creativity.

Prizes

Winners will receive an awards badge under their avatar.

traditionally this is dependent on turnout. if there's not many, we usually go by popular vote. otherwise it's usually people who we invite to judge, or the mods ourselves judge.

I suppose that's all right, provided that you're composing a scene from a single viewpoint, and it's not just a bunch of models. Remember also that you will be in competition with people who will be mostly working in 2D only.

darkreaver, I presume the idea of the exact same view point is loose? for example, not just to copy pasta and change bits but to start again on a new piece from the same view point where there might be some slight positioning differences (such as the monet above.)

to be honest, I would be okay with copy paste, provided that it's justified. The lineart for example might be super complex, so that can be the same/similar but the colors can be completely different. You make the call. Remember, skill is one of the judging criteria, and whether or not you copy paste plays a part in it.
