June 2010 Graphics Challenge


Graphic by Erendira

Guidelines:
  1. Erendira, Mirk and I have decided the graphic for this month's challenge will be, icon (100 x 100),wallpaper (Artists choice of any common or not so common screen resolution) a banner (600 x 400).signatures (600/500 x 200)
  2. Use any pictures of Orlando, including pap, along with the poem "Perfect" by our very own Andnolewen (Tonny), Found HERE, to create monochromatic or black and white wallpapers. Monochrmatic means to use one color only (different tones of the color)
  3. The challenge will run for three weeks and then we will have one week to vote.
  4. The vote will be via a member poll, with the # of votes determined by the # of entries.
  5. The three graphics with the most votes will be that month's winners.
  6. A winning banner will be posted for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.
  7. Entries will be taken until June 23rd and the poll will be posted later that same night, time permitting.
  8. There will be a limit of FIVE entries per person.
  9. It was decided that these challenges will be ''stills". In other words, no animations. We want to make this as accessible as possible to everyone, and some members may not have advanced into animation.


Happy graphic making everyone!

Kat, Lola and Mirk

A very special thank you to Tonny for allowing us to use her poem for our challenge. And a reminder that Tonny is under no obligation to use any of the art we create to post with her poem. She has not made a request for art to use.

Thank you for giving my words such a beautiful image Lola, and I love the papers..it reminds me of my desk..when writing-drawing



I will make no request, but that poem is based on this picture from the Hollywood Awards back in 2003. You know :)


And amazing how it still applies to him after all these years.
I can't wait to see what you all come up with!!

Now that is stunning Lola - so effective with the b&w and the crumpling and the subject and the poem caught beneath that breathtaking picture.

Man o man - that will be hard to beat! Well done girl, you did good, with or without the sex bit!

Love it, Lola!

Here's my little try. I was having trouble with text transparency but it seems to have worked itself out.



Thanks to Tonny for the fantastic poem and for posting the pic I used in the 'Just Orlando' thread.

Gorgeous, Fairy!
He looks like he's surrounded with stardust. So it's true. He's not of this world.

Thanks very much, Choco and Kat! To tell my secret... I have no brushes (don't have that kind of program), so I just layered and erased and cloned and whatnot.

I love the sparkles too, most appropriate Fairy! And I always say there's something about Orlando and the colour blue...

Beautiful Fairy! Yes, the color suits him well.

I need some help with backgrounds and stuff. I have no idea what to do to create the lovely things you guys do. Do I just need to download a bunch of different brushes and mess around?

Thanks so much Gem, CD, and Luna!

Yep, CD, just experiment and play around with your program and see what happens.
