Art Image Challenge 2007: Handicaps Galore


Recommended Posts

[size=1]Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Otakus and normal people! It is the time that you've all been waiting for. It is time to put your creativity and insight to the test once more. It is time for another [b]Image Challenge![/b]

The Image Challenge! of two years ago was started by our very own Retribution and can be found here: [url=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=49199][i]Image Challenge![/i][/url]. The idea was simple. Each person posts parameters for the next person to work with: a word or phrase and a colour scheme. The next person posts a picture based on those parameters and then gives their own parameters for the following person. [color=#EDEDED]You can take a look in the original thread for examples.[/color]

This year we'll do it slightly different. As the Handicap Battles competition won't be held this time around, or at least not very soon, we'll just blend the two together.

Welcome to Image Challenge 2007: [b]Handicaps Galore![/b]

So, what do you do? It's almost as simple as the Image Challenge, but varies a bit more creativity. Each person gives the next person [b]THREE (3) 'handicaps'[/b] that they [i]have[/i] to work with. These can vary between size limitations (for example: 150×500 pixels), colour schemes (for example: only reds), certain themes (for example: a summer theme), text that has to be on it, a picture that has to be in it and a lot more things - [i]you name it[/i]! (Just keep it within reason, thank you very much)

This thread uses the [b]claiming[/b] system. So when someone posts a set of handicaps, you can [i]claim[/i] the next post, so that two people won't be working on the same handicaps at the same time. However, there's a time limit to it. You have to post the picture [b]within 24 hours[/b]. If you don't post within the time limit, your claim to the next post will be ignored and the next person can post.

Now then, I hope it is clear enough. I probably typed a lot more than necessary, but moo. If there are any questions, feel free to ask them (preferably via PM, or this thread might get messy).

[color=red]Here we go! First person gets to work with these handicaps (let's start off simple):
[list][*]Theme: Autumn/Fall
[*]Size restrictions: 250×400
[*]Font to use: Century Gothic[/list]

[COLOR="SandyBrown"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"]Since Kitty didn't make the finishing product, I'll claim it. I want to keep this alive and hopefully more graphic artists will come.

[B]Edit:[/B] I'm done and since the hot chocolate thread mentioned starbuck's so much...I added a little something.

Next- This one is for all the anime fans out there.

[size=1]Time to give a new set of handicaps by completing the last one. Whee. I'm not too happy about this picture, but well, it'll do for now, I suppose. Near the end I decided that I put enough layers on it, so I didn't quite clean up the end piece. :x


---Next Handicap---

Yay for vectoring! I was going to go into shadow detail and whatnot, but I really don't have enough time, so.

It was good practice, though. Seeing as how my college major is dealing with this kind of thing right now. : O

[size=1]To keep it simple:..

Thought it was effective enough what with all the blood on the wall and all. Adding the scope took slight effort.
