introductionintroduction
round one of the OVR06 DESIGN COMPETITION
is upon you. this isnt your average competition
or your average battle. this is my comp. and
it goes by my word. it isnt a make something
this big and whoever wins, wins
. i put forth
guidelines, rules and regulations and you're to
follow them and whoever is able to make the
best product out of what i provide for them wins.
this is a challenge as well as a competition. if you
dont like how big your canvas is, dont complain to
me. just dont enter. if you dont like the theme. do
the same as before- dont enter. your complaints
will fall on def ears. this is supposed to take you
out of your element and make you possibly create
unlike you've created before.

rulesrules
the rules for this round are fairly straightforward.
in the regulations i'll state what you work
with, the theme, text and phrases you can use,
dimensions and possibly color templates.

once this thread is posted [when i click the post
button], you'll have exactly 1 week [7 (seven) days]
to complete it. if it doesnt match my specifications
in terms of size, text, etc. you're entry will be ignored.

each entry will be ranked and given points. the rank
and points will be allocated as such;

rank1 - 10 points
rank2 - 9 points
rank3 - 8 points
rank4 - 7 points
rank5 - 6 points

and so on...

the points you gain each round will be added up and
whoever has the most at the end of this competition
will win. what you win, i'm not sure yet but i've got
time to figure that out. say you're not the best designer
in the world but you can make solid pieces each round,
you could possibly sneak in for the win at the end of
the competition. you dont have to win every round to
win the competition. but at the same time, if you're
head and shoulders above the rest, you can easily take
the cake.

regulationsregulations
here are the rules you guys and girls will have to live by.
follow these to a T, make sure you dot your i's and you
should be ok. remember, it's not about winning every
round- it's about being consistant 'til the very end.

theme
the theme for this round is possibly a difficult one. the
theme is the concept of obsession. do whatever
you need to create something with that theme. think
about something you obsess over, extreme cases of
obsession, what it represents to you, etc.

text
the only text you can use for this piece is;

so this is obsession?

no other text is allowed to be on the piece. you can
repeat it as many times as you want, but those are
the only words you can put on the page. you may
not take any words out, or only use a specific word.
you must use the whole phrase, as you see it. you
cant change punctuation. what you may do is change
capitalization but that's all.

dimensions
dimensions for this will be awkward for some of you
because it's so strong, vertically.

dimensions are;
600x950 (width x height)

photos
photo choice is up to you as the designer. use any
you want, but you may not use more than 1 photo.
do whatever you want to the picture, manipulate it
however you please.

by photo i mean any sort of picture, scan, cel, or
photograph. say you wanted to use a seagull in
your design for this competition, you could either
find one online, draw one and scan it, or scan
your own picture, but if you chose to use one of
those methods, that would be your 1 picture.

NOTE you may not use another photo to manip.
your 1 main photo. you can use the same photo to
manipulate, but it must be the same photo.

colors
for color, you must use the following color in some
way or another;

C21903

miscellaneous
for this competition, it will be 100% photoshop. no 3D
STUDIO MAX or imageready or anything. all photoshop,
all the time.

miscellaneous2
when you're finished with your piece, feel free to PM
your work. do not post it in this thread or any other
thread. once i receive your work, it'll be uploaded on
to my website. by then, i'll have made a page for this
competition and all the entrants piece will be on display
with credit given to each designer. also the points
standing will be found here as well as my own website
throughout the competition. so if you cant find something
on here, look on my website.


may the best designer win.

Requesting clarification of photos and text

You say we may use one photo? Or are we allowed to combine drawings and other work with photos? Do you mean specifically photos as in photography, or did you mean no combining multiple works total (for example, not that I'd do this, but could an entry have a render in the background, some anime drawing over that, and some other stuff all blended together... or would that count as multiple photos). Basically, what counts as a photo?

In terms of text, "so this is obsession?" is the only text we are allowed... Are we allowed to only use pieces of that, for example only using the word "obsession" instead of the whole phrase. Are we allowed to use different punctuation, for example a "..." instead of a "?". Are we allowed to use different capitalization, such as capitalizing the first letter?

Besides that, I think I'm clear on everything... How should we submit the work, in a reply post on this with a link to it uploaded somewhere, or PM you or what?

Edit: Any limitations on medium or method of creation?

good questions. i was hoping you guys would ask questions
'cause that would help me clearify things for the future.

first i'll define what i mean by photo: by photo i mean any
sort of picture. whether it be a picture from an anime, a
photo you took of a flower, a scan of your hand. i guess
you could call it a "stock" or whatever. if you scan a drawing
you cannot use it in conjuction with another picture
or photo. if you scan a drawing, that's your 1.

a 3d render would not constitute a photo and thus wouldnt
count towards your 1.

in terms of the text, you have to use "so this is obsession?"
the whole thing, no change in punctuation but you may
capitalize as you see fit. pretty much whatever phrase or
word i supply, you have to use it as i've used it other than
capitalization. no more, no less.

also, PM me the piece by next saturday and i'll host them
on my website and post each piece in the results thread
or whatever i may do.

in terms of medium limitation, for this competition, let's keep
it 100% photoshop just for simplicity sake.

i'll be sure to add these explainations to the original post.

I'm not good at gfx shit. However I may have a crack at it. We will see what my schedule has in store for me (finals this week. :( )
