Yeah that's something I wanna ask Becca...This is a good contest that will be accessible to people who have not got PS, you can just draw it
I won't enter in the contest here, because I'm already participating on the .nl forum, but I wish everyone good luck.
Most will probably use rendered images. Most people are image manipulators rather then original artists. Origional work is most certainly welcome. Orgo won the last monthly competition and you can tell it was his work in its entirety. My hat goes off to people with the ability to create something from scratch with their own hands. I can only do that if it's completely abstract! :laugh:I may as well display my ignorance here rather than bug someone in PMs. What does "graphics" cover? If most entries will be rendered pictures, I won't bother entering (I don't do them). If it has to be all original, I'll probably make an attempt. Thanks.
In answer to your question, --- http://forum.the-west.net/showthread.php?t=42657What kind of graphic do you want? Pixel Count? Shape? Animation allowed? (gifs?).. I don't have photoshop either, I am an unemployed artist, I have the cheap version.. coreldraw. Today I made replacement letters for CNC keyboards that had the wrong letters installed for the type of machine they were on... for a school.... yay me.
So what will it be boss?
I see your point, different competitions would be nice though if you can't beat them join them, I use http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ <--this software it's free though if you like it feel free to make a small donation to help develop this software for the futureYet ANOTHER graphic design competition! Just recently the only competitions have been for the creative graphic design people with their expensive photoshop programs. Where are the competitions for those of us who are not graphic design gurus?
