Man...there's already been some awesome pieces

Raytheon (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 11/5/2008 03:51
ahahahhahaha

actually, we just use Mad Libs the eve of a new challenge to determine it.

user
Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 11/4/2008 20:21
these contests actually get set in several weeks in advance i think...

This was not inspired by that piece Raytheon, just a coincidence.

user
Raytheon (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 11/4/2008 04:05
fuck you dex :)


i'm pretty sure i stated that i enjoyed the last challenge. and you whine a shitload more than i do!

on another note: was this inspired by the recent 'mspaint default still life fruit' image that recently graced the gallery???

I actually think this is a neat idea... I've always kind of dug the challenges that already give you a pallet to work with. If I find the time, I'll definitely give this one a shot.

I'm also calling it that someone is going to make some mutated monster fruit. :P

Animated Still Life.
Quite a paradox, but I think it to be very funny.

user
Delfos (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 11/3/2008 14:00
hehe, Yes, it is pretty ironic

user
RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 11/3/2008 12:20
Oh, I realize that there are many animation possibilities. I just found it ironic :D

user
Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 11/3/2008 12:14
vanitas. Vanitas. VA.NI.TAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSS

Jão, when I added your stilllife I thought, 'Oh man! he's gonna be bummed next week' lol

*still life on window sill with animated curtains blowing in the wind or a mouse eating the fruit are possible animations on a still life.

user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 11/3/2008 11:07
lol @ comments.

Also a still life *can* be animated...the objects themselves don't have to be animated. For example, the lighting could change over the peroiod of the animation. Use your imagination people :(

user
Dex (Level 11 CEO) @ 11/3/2008 10:28
I on one hand like this challenge and might give it a go. As for raytheon, all he ever does on any forum is whine and complain, so don't mind him :D

user
Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 11/3/2008 10:16
ok guys, time to show that guy how things must be made to be attractive.

user
MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 11/3/2008 09:59
A still life where animation is allowed, eh?  Heehee 

EDIT: just saw this comment was already made!  Teach me to read first ;)

user
cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/3/2008 09:04
ITT: unimaginative artists whine, blame lack of creativity on something other than themselves

@Stickman: that should be fine, so long as the fruit remains the focal point of the image.

user
skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 11/3/2008 07:41
GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY

jk, i'll do it

you guys don't have to enter, that just makes it easier for other people to win

user
Jo (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 11/3/2008 07:10
D:!

This challenge could've shown up a week earlier :(

user
Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 11/3/2008 07:01

What about backgrounds such as a bowl, chopping boards etc? Or is it just only the fruits?


user
Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 11/3/2008 06:48
Yes, it is up to you, the artist, to make the challenge interesting. :)

user
Claes (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/3/2008 06:32
boring? unfavorable? I would acully say that this is one of the most intersting challangesthat I have seen yet!

I find a challange with strict restrictions in the rules, as the mundane subjectmatter and the colour restriction this time, and then try and make it interesting is the hole charm with challanges! Whats the point if its to open or go hand in hand with work you can do without having a challange for it?
It feels like alot of pepole have a hard time thinking outside the box if they complain about a challange like this :/

If you se what you only want to se, why even participate?

user
RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 11/3/2008 05:48
Haha, does anyone else see the irony in animations being allowed in a still life challenge?

user
tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 11/3/2008 03:26

well.. if the guy who came up with that is not mentioned then the challenge topic seems to be an idea of the staff..

contrary to the 'pretty boring' guy (if so then your pieces would perfectly fit this challenge) i find this quite an attractice challenge.. interesting that it took like 70 challenge before someone came up with that obvious theme

not sure if i enter though (lack ob time, common excuse =)


user
Raytheon (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 11/3/2008 02:02
52, but between several people, given ideas from challenge winners and the ability to reuse ideas from previous years it shouldnt be too hard

user
pipe (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/3/2008 01:54
I agree with Opacus Its not that easy to think about 50 challenges a year.I am doing this challenge and I  hope I wont be late for the third time.

user
Raytheon (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 11/3/2008 01:47
I'm sure they have other challenges from winners, and if they were short, i'm sure they could ask someone else to do it.

user
Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 11/3/2008 01:35
Then I dare you: Make an interesting challenge each week of the year.
I don't think it's as easy as it seems.

user
Raytheon (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 11/3/2008 01:26
yeah ive noticed that either a) the staff are choosing all the challenges or b) they are just not telling us who made these terrible challenges

user
Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/3/2008 01:22
pretty boring :(

user
Damian (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 11/3/2008 00:12
hmmm an unfavorable challenge...but ok, maybe I'll finish this one.
