View Full Version : Digital Artwork Contest [1] - VOTING.

It's time for voting! >:D
Four people didn't submit their submissions in time, so I took them off the list.

Quick Definition: Photomanipulation, is the editing of photographs or images, to create a different look.

Remember, don't vote just based on popularity of the person. Look carefully at each persons original image and their own created image. Based on that, vote the originality, flow, effects overdone or underdone, and etc. of a person.
It would also be great if you guys typed a sentence or two on why you voted a certain person.
Oh and please follow all of PE2K's rules. Don't flame someone, or etc. please. ^_^

Just click on their names, to see their image, and then on the original. I didn't post the images here, because I r not an idiot. <3

/doublepostftwonceagain. <3

Anyways, if there is a poll up, could you make it so it shows the users name in that poll? I know there is that option, and it would be great, so I could add both the posts and votes in the poll to add up both. Thanks. :3 - Forget this. :P

@I'm voting for Callum's here. His is so simple, yet unique. Everyone else did basically a change of a scenery image, but Callum changed an animal in his image, and it still looks amazing. :3

Oh, and if there's anything wrong with the above post, just PM me and I'll fix it. :3

I pick Callum's because his is the only one that's a Pokemon. Also, it's plain and cool.

I'm also voting for Callum's picture. Most of the other entries take away from the original entry, instead of adding to it. The only issue I have with Callum's photomanipulation would be that the original mane and tail are still somewhat visible, but it's not that big of a problem.

I don't know what HiHi's original image was, so I can't really judge it...

For Vanessa's picture, everything looks too artificial. The photomanip is way too dark for it to depict a giant burning forest (the darkness also makes everything somewhat hard to see, especially the mountains), and the flames have spread into the water, which also contains an iceberg. O_o

joangaes's photomanipulation is very hard to look at. The font is out of place color-wise, the mountains are practically neon, and that grid is annoying when I look at it. It was so much calmer in the original picture... now it looks like a good mess. @______@

Dynamik's photomanip would look better without the filters on the original image, in my opinion. I would have voted for this, since there's this smooth feeling you get from looking at the picture as a whole. If you are willing to continue working on this, Dynamik, I would recommend that you give Deoxys and the lettering a glow similar to the one the Earth has. Maybe I'm just too used to SMG...

In MSUK's picture, the "transition" from the bottom to the top of the image is too sudden. It's like looking at this dark path and WHOOP TWO FACES! Good that you shooped out the date, though. The font you used is also nice, but if I were to continue working on it, I'd make something else in the picture the same shade of red to balance it. Maybe the bushes or the people's eyes, but red eyes are really cliché and would mess up the balance even more. (It'd look cool if you put those two guys walking on the path towards the foreground, by the way. Gives you a "I'm coming to get you" feeling, but that's not what you were going for, right?) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAUGH I DID NOT RECOGNIZE THOSE TWO FACES DISREGARD THAT

If I hadn't procrastinated until the last few days of the contest and than gotten traveling sickness for the last two or three days of the contest...o.O :sad: Sorry 'bout that...
I am voting for HiHi. I recall seeing his(?) orig. image before the link broke. It's good. Callium came close to getting my vote, but HiHi's transformation just caught my eye.

Callum. Hands down.

My next choice would have been MSUK.

I am going with MSUK's. He took a pretty sunny place and turned it into a deep, and dark looking scene out of a horror movie. ^^; It made me smile!

07-22-2009, 12:26 AM
lolk. <3
There's six more days left to vote. :P

Oh, and instead of a poll, I'll just count the votes from peoples posts here instead. :3

07-22-2009, 01:32 AM
My vote goes to MSUK. I don't know what but I really like it. Is there supposed to be no poll. I like the look of it and the idk finishedness of it. looks good.

07-22-2009, 02:53 AM
There was, but then I changed my mind, because since it'll get confusing when people vote in the poll and post their votes at the same time. :x

07-22-2009, 05:06 AM
I vote for Callum's amazing photo. It's pretty much a newly defined image instead of a change of scenery like what TayyabX said.

07-23-2009, 02:29 AM
Callum FTW.
It is a friggin Rapidash!
I'm pretty sure it's a Ponyta, dear... Nice try, though.

My vote goes to MSUK.

1. His actually looks like the one that had a LOT of effort put into creating it.
2. It has my beautiful 'Glasses wearing' face in it.
3. It has Tombi's beautiful face in it.
4. It tells the truth, Tombi and I are the "Siblings of Shadows."

*One more day to vote.*

Callum gets my vote.

Callum, I always loved your work. Your work never disappoints me. =]

/sorryabouttheinactivity. :3

It looks like Callum has won the Photmanipulation theme. MSUK came in second.

I'll post some sort of winner's thread like the SOTW thread, and post the next theme thread when I get the chance. :x

08-06-2009, 01:31 PM
sorriez for the delay. I've been on vacation and traveling too many times. D;

Anyways, Callum won, I don't know if I should create a whole new thread for winners, post in the SOTW thread, or just keep his image at the top for the next DAContest. :x

Could a moderator lock this, until someone gives me an idea? <3

I'll lock it. Tell me by VM or PM to unlock it or something.
