This contest is for bragging rights!

New to the contests? Please review the FAQs


THE RULES:

1. Contest will run from 19 Oct to 6 Nov 2016. Deadline for entries is 6 pm (U.S. Central Time…remember daylight savings).

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

3. Tasks:
  • Remove the Logo from the entrance awning
  • Remove the street lights
  • Remove the extra buildings (focus should be the main Victorian house minus the flat side wing on the left and buildings in back)
  • Add a graveyard for the front lawn
  • Add a moon for atmosphere
  • Change the driveway to cobblestones
  • DO NOT add text
  • You are free to add other copyright free elements to enhance your scene
  • Final image must be in landscape format, 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels high
  • Retouch the resulting image as necessary to create the final spooktacular masterpiece

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 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 7 to 12 Nov 2016. 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. Post your votes on the Oct 2016 Contest Voting Thread.

Once you have voted, do not change your votes. The votes are tallied as they 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. Tips and suggestions to help others are highly encouraged. Also please don’t 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.

Hi to all! Although a longtime visitor to RP, this is my first submission. What fun to reimagine Halloween without a client looking over my shoulder. That was the inspiration for the witchly hand on a wicked crystal ball. I've already learned from each of the four already submitted images and look forward to more in the next few days! I'll post individual comments soon.
