hooray for the cover art contest. :D I have been looking forward to this.

About the t-shirts... I have about 5 t-shirt designs ready, when I get a few more, I will put them up for people to vote and comment on. Like I said earlier, I would like to narrow it down to 2-3 shirt designs, that way its easier for whoever is doing the ordering/shipping

boon23
05-06-2007, 06:13 PM
I am looking very forward to seeing those designs, TC.

05-07-2007, 07:43 AM
thanks boon. i'll try to get a few knocked out in the next couple of days, so I can showcase them.

I see that you are judging this contest. I guess that means you will not be participating :( I'm sure you could come up with a cool cover. maybe next time

boon23
05-07-2007, 08:21 AM
If there comes one more judge, I will switch :) I wasn't sure how many judges there would be... I will also give the responsibility then to xtomo, so he gets the covers to send them to the other judges.

deadline for the judges? well, they shouldn't take longer than a week to decide for a cover art, so it would be June 7th.

Cassidy
05-11-2007, 08:32 AM
It's kind of annoying that it isn't too easy to submit any cover art for the contest, so for any participants, I've directely linked the current judges below for ease of contact.

A few quickies about the release, as I've decided to slightly modify my entry dangerously close to deadline!

1 - is it 16:9 widescreen, or letterboxed?
2 - is it DD2.0 or 5.1 surround?
3 - just to make absolutely sure, this is NTSC, and not PAL, right?

I thiiiinnnkkk that's it...

twistd101
05-30-2007, 10:25 AM
Right, that's the original site I had looked at. That's where I got the questions from - it says 16:9, but is that matted, or for widescreen TVs, and DD stereo could mean 2 or 5.1... and nowhere does it say whether it's PAL or NTSC, I'd assume NTSC...

EDIT: Sorry if I came off like a real ass there... wow.

ThrowgnCpr
05-30-2007, 10:38 AM
it is NTSC

They must be really close in quality if it's taking over a week to judge which one is the "best." There were, like, under 10 submissions, right?

That's awesome. Wow. Thanks a lot, guys!!!

The entries were all amazing, just spectacular.

Art is so subjective that it's hard to say one is better than the other, unless it's absolutely ugly, but every one of these was in the same league.

All of the artists who submitted entries know that as much passion and creativity goes into a cover as goes into a Fan Edit or (deleted word that rhymes with Smeservation) ;)

Everyone spent a good deal of time on their entry.

There's a lot of talented folks here, and I am humbled and honoured by this.

Thanks a lot!

Congrats to Cassidy and nice work from all the contestants. And I never saw that first entry from Cass but it's pretty good too.

Maybe all of the contestants could detail a bit of how they made their covers?

IE: Which program, filters, where you got your raw art etc...Might be a good way to inspire more entries for the next contest?

yeah, info on the work process would be good. when i get home (probably next week) i'll give some details on everything I did for my cover. I think all of the covers should be made available for download as a DVD-ROM folder. Great work guys!.

As for the next cover contest, I am definitely in, but i would love to hold off a bit. I dont have much time currently, but either way I am for sure in.

A LITTLE POST-MORTEM for the next contest.

I really enjoyed the LIVE feel to the award.
It was great coming up with a greenwich time when we could all meet.
those on the chat room got a much closer live feel.

IMPROVEMENTS: Close submissions a week before the actual deadline
and post all entrees so that the community can see them.
allow opinions to be posted. side bets allowed as well.

This would also help situations such as Cassidy's missing entree.
Give everyone time to sort it out.
Those submitting entrees must make sure all the judges get them. a little PM goes a long way.

And I was going to say that Cassidy left his award behind, but he sent someone who picked it up.
