    Theme: textures
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Details: I think this might be nice. Lot's of people these days need textures to spruce up their artworks so why not do a photocomp around it. So take some nice photo's about textures (cracks, grind, dirt ...)
    Go for usability this time since that's what will be juidged on as well, seeing as it's difficult to judge otherwise.
    I will ask afterwards aftwerwards to make a pack from it. So to use it to make the pack and then share it with the community.


    Prizes for this one are different than usual because of the nature of how to judge and all. BUT!! everyone who simply enter will get 100 creds

    POST A DIRECT LINK, NO LINK TO DA OR WHATEVER.

    Prizes:
    • 1st place: 500 GR credits (+ entering bonus)
    • 2nd place: 250 GR Credits (+ entering bonus)
    • 3rd place: 100 GR Credits (+ entering bonus)
    <span style="color:#9db500">This will start on: Wednesday, 22nd of April
    This will end on:Wednesday, 13th of May


    Good luck to all and happy shooting!

    sounds like a great idea on the idea of making a pack from it. I'll be sure to entire this one :) was to busy with exams and studying that I had no time for the last one.

    I like the idea, but how could one judge textures? I feel as though they're all just going to be close ups of cracks and stuff.

    Preferably a usable texture. The judging will probably go towards usability this time then. I know this will be tricky to judge but I think it would be a nice incentive with the pack and all :)

    hehe sweet right down my ally. YAY. but the problem with the most usable is that they are often the most simplistic.

    oh and of course i will now change my entry.

    Just had a thought. Since this isn't the typical photocomp, I will adjust the prizes people get.
    I'll lower all the prizes by 50% BUT everyone who enters this one, will get 100 creds

    Perhaps, but not sure yet. First places won't be ruby's anymore from now one, but a 1000 credit payout.

    That's fine with me :lol:

    I'm wondering if I want to browse my already existent textures, or take time I don't necessarily have to find some more. Maybe I'll take one of the floor in the studio while shooting my product :tongue:
