Create an original image with your computer, using any tools and techniques you like.
This competition is for any picture created with a computer as the primary tool. There are no limitations on style or content - as long as you comply with the rules.
The entry must be delivered as a Zip or RAR archive containing the following items:
- The picture in 16:9 format, preferably and no less than 1920*1080 pixels. This is to ensure that the entry won't need scaling when shown on the bigscreen. This also means you can not submit an entry in portrait orientation.
- At least three in-progress pictures, showing the workflow. These will be shown during the compo show. (If more than three in-progress pictures are delivered, please select three highlights from these, or the crew will pick three to be shown.)
Use the following file names in your archive:
- Compo version: title-yourname.png
- In-progress pictures: title-yourname-wip-xx.png (xx being numbers, lowest number being the earliest stage)
- PNG (.png)
- JPEG (.jpg/.jpeg)
We recommend that you deliver your entry as PNG, as it is a lossless format.
In-progress pictures must also be in JPEG or PNG format.
Text in pictures
There should not be any text in the picture, unless it is part of a texture or is part of the picture in a logical way (i.e., if you make a picture of a car, you are obviously allowed to equip it with license plates).
- All elements of the picture must be created by you, on a computer. This prohibits use of fonts, clip-art, photos, stuff you "found" at deviantArt and so on.
- The motive of your entry must be your own idea. This means you cannot use characters or concepts from movies, video games or any other aspect of popular culture.
- Brushes are considered tools, not elements. This means that you are allowed to use brushes not made by you.
- You may use a scanned paper sketch (drawn by you) as a work step. If you do so, include this as a work-in-progress-shot.
- Specifically, we do not allow images competing in the Rendered Graphics competition to enter this competition.
A maximum of 20 entries will be shown in this compo. The winner will be chosen from a combination from popular vote and jury vote.
