    If only I wasn't depressed. I can't help but think it would be totally mind blowing, if ridiculous, if I managed to do a picture with enough quality and ambition to participate in this. I'm not grandiose to think I have any chance of winning considering my lack of everything and the brutal competition, but if only I was well enough to finish something worth presenting I could at least feel proud for once in my life.

    Anyway...

    Some questions:

    So the idea is to put out our most original vision into the world? It doesn't have to be to literally birth a creature, right?

    You say any media, but how will Wacom promote itself if a person uses a mouse or traditional media? Is it really any media?

    I think the any media thing is more or less to afford people who don't have the luxury of already owning a tablet, (but may be just as talented and creative as someone who does) the chance to win a tablet if they can't afford to just buy one---and this contest is also about winning some great spots for publicity of your work--so it's not just geared towards wacom's promotional goals.

    That's what I think anyway. o.O

    good luck!

    yeah...im hoping to see a lot of ideas that are not just newborn babies...unless it is just handled that amazingly well...the concept is to BRING SOMETHING INTO THE WORLD...whatever that may be. It could be an image that is socially responsible, pure fine art, illustration...the works...

    Be creative!!!

    hey Jason

    Hey...just wondering, but the rules state to enter the image at 1000 pixels wide, and mentioned that the grand prize winner might be on a cover of Imaginefx.......is there a prefered height ?
    Just that i know cover art can be a bit restrictive if its in a wide aspect ratio.

    Im not assuming that i will win, although that would be sweeeeeet.....just didnt want to enter something that wont work on a cover...just in case :-0
    cheers!

    ps: rocking idea for a comp - cheers guys

    Great competition. Maybe I even have a real chance ^^

    Though I would like to know about the picture height too.
    Is it just 1000 pixel x anything you want ?

    I will give it a shot. This will get me inspired again and it will be a great chance for me to actually brush up on my skills since I have been slacking way off.

    Remember, the 1000px rule only applies to the image you send in as the final image.

    So make sure the source material is of higher resolution, in case you do win and they have to put the art on the cover of imagineFX. You can always crop so don't worry, just make it high rez plusminus -3600 x 2400 and up. Once its done rescale it to a smaller resolution image with the max width of 1000 pixels.

    Height is realative to the aspect ration of your image I believe, so 1600 high, 1000 wide is fine I think.

    You will never get anywhere thinking like that---as long as you try your best and don't defeat yourself, you will be worth something because your effort will speak for itself.

    No, because if you don't try, you'll never find out what you can do. Winning isn't everything, but pushing yourself is.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Yes, but if you are still learning to swim, you don't go compete in the Olympics yet.

    Tbh, we still haven't gotten any sort of answer regarding the height. I'm guessing it's only effecting the width, and you can go crazy with the height, but I would just like some sort of clarification, since 1000x1000 is infinitely different than 1000x1600, etc.

    Sorry to nitpick. D:

    That reminds of the story of that african swimmer who got the chance to participate in the Sydney Olympic Games...

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/olym...ing/931508.stm

    He had just learnt to swim and he almost died finishing to swim the whole distance... But he did finish. Didnīt win that competition but he got famous and made some money making adīs.

    So you never know... donīt give up before trying!

    And I bet he swims better now than he did before!

    Then again, other people just enjoy being negative...

    Will keep silent on this one. Can't change anyone's mind if they don't want to be changed.

    Holy ****!!!

    This looks like an awesome competition, loads of prizes, open theme....

    I'm in.

    I'm so in.

    Finally, some motivation has come along, slapped me a couple of times, and given me something to work for.

    Can I just say thank you to Jason, everyone at Massive Black Inc., and the Imagine FX bunch, because those prizes are really generous!



    Thanks so much guys!!

    Might as well enter man.

    It may be a 1/10000000000000 chance that I'll win this, but that's still a chance, plus it'll improve your skills just working on your entries.

    Ima brainstorm too.

    Is there a limit to the ammount of entries we can do Jason?

    Keeping quality in mind of course.

    i know, too good of a chance to improve to let it slide, specially with all the time there is to creat your entry/ies

    this will be like a crash course of photoshop for me xP

    Same lol.

    Only got PS a week or two ago, and I've not even got a mouse yet, just the touchpad.



    Good luck to everyone, and great theme Jason, I've brainstormed and I have loads of ideas.
