Photography Contest 30: COMICS

Where: The Photography Studio of Grignano

Theme: Comics, funnies, cartoons, single panel or strips MADE IN SECOND LIFE. Cash prizes.

SL Toon Studio is on the roof! Try it out - it rocks! <—demo video

Patch Lamington is offering 3 Special Prizes for Toon Studio shots: #1 - 500 L for best submission using an unedited Toon Studio snapshot (single frame)

#2 - 500 L for the best submission using 3 or more Toon Studio snaps stitched together to make a single comic. (no other editing!)

#3 - 100L special bonus for the funniest joke set in the library (just to see if it’s possible :-)
There is a Toon Studio in Amicitia at Patch’s Place which can be used by anyone. Also one will be set up for use at Blumfield Park. Boxed Toon Studios will be available at both places for purchase.

The contest themes are always loose - any interpretation is good. The theme is comics. Do ANYTHING you want. Get funky.
Single panel, multi-panel, dress up in cell-shaded gear, use the SL Toon Studio or use something else.
If you make a machinima cartoon I can display it - however if I get more than one it won’t be as easy.

You may make something like an animated texture or other cool thing if you want. You don’t have any tight limits.
If you make something cool that doesn’t seem to fit the “textures” requirement just enter it anyway.

Straight snaps or manipulated - it’s all good.

DATES Enter by: 7 September 2007 - late entries will be hung space permitting but will not be eligible for prizes.
Exhibition: 10 September - 30 September 2007 in the Photography Studio upstairs gallery.

We will have an awards ceremony - time TBA.

To Enter

Special Comic-Type Entry Rules
Comic Strips may be formed from multiple textures on prims or enter 3 textures of Second Life screenshots. Textures can be no bigger than 512×512 - rectangular photos saved as 512×512 regain their proportions once they are put on a prim.

Title entries with your name + title so I don’t lose it in my inventory Send them to Osprey Therian with MOD permission and COPY permission. Give me an IM so I know to look for them.

Don’t send them in a notecard - I say this as I look at textures every day but I rarely look at notecards. If I don’t get your heads-up the entry gets buried under the billion spam notecards I get per week. I hate it when things get lost - the only entries that’ve been lost thus far were in notecards.

The Photography Studio is located in The Brownstone East, Grignano Grignano is a pg sim.

Osprey says, “Hello!”

My idea is that you will be able to use backdrops, props, poses, costumes for screenshots. We all have costumes we’ve acquired - why not use them? This is a chance to break out those Olde London clothes - or be a modern time-traveler photographed a hundred years ago in clothes from the future.

I have too many ideas to get ‘em all going at once - but this is a nice start. Thanks to Enjah Mysterio for her supreme skills and patience while posing. The Gibson Girl hair really looks good!
