Prize: Fluid Mask 3, donated by Vertus


Prize Description: Now professional results are more possible than ever before. Make super fine mask selections using new sampling and selecting tools. Check out the new edge blending algorithms. And the new complex hair blending that automatically gets great results from multi-colored whispy hair. No longer should hair be the cutting-out nightmare it is today. Quick to pick up and intuitive to use, Fluid Mask 3 gets professional results fast.

1. Contest will run from 2 June to 23 June 2010. Deadline is 5pm (Central).

2. I will not answer questions concerning the rules. Interpretation of the rules is as important as execution.

3. Tasks:
  • Realistically colorize the provided photo.
  • Color information:
    Hair: golden brown with a hint of auburn in the highlights
    Eyes: warm brown
    Clothing: white
  • Minor photo retouching is permitted to improve imperfections (i.e. remove stain on photo, dust and so on)
  • Crop the white border off the image to get the final dimensions to exactly 800 pixels high and 552 pixels wide

4. When you submit your entry put your username in the filename (ie: tpaul.jpg). This is so users can save the images to a local directory and remember who did what--important when it comes time to vote.

5. Post your entries to this thread. Links will not be accepted. Please restrict your comments, questions or discussion to the June 10 Contest Discussion thread. Inappropriately placed posts will be deleted.

6. Only one entry per person. You can change your entry up to the deadline.

7. Voting will run from 24 June to 30 June. Only those with entries may vote.

8. Voting:
  • Submit the 5 best entries (by artist name) in order, starting with your favorite.
  • You cannot vote for your own image.
  • Once you have voted, do not change your votes. The votes are tallied as them come in so any changes in the votes may not be reflected in the final results.

Finally, please remember that this is a friendly contest and suppose to be a learning experience. Please don't be afraid to enter. Also, any tips and suggestions to help others are highly encouraged. Likewise, donít limit your comments to just the top 5 when you vote. Most members are eager for feedback about their images, so remember to help each other out.
