i made this about 2 years ago. it was the result of boredom and a new found interest in photoshop...but mostly stemmed from depression.
such a gloomy period of my life that was...ugh
im still trying to break the cycle.
but yeah, its abstract i guess....and i made it 2 years ago i think. and i named it "poetry"

IMMORTAL, you've broken a couple of rules. Firstly, i'm not sure what the digital art in this is? this looks more like a photograph.

Secondly, your filename does not contain anything related to your username.

Finally, the file size for this entry is 20kb's bigger than the highest amount allowed for this competition. It must be 150kbs and no bigger.

Have to agree IMMORTAL. Beautiful photo, but these need to be digital compositions.

Alright.. Here's my submission.. :) Keep in mind the quality was brought down so that it would be lower than 150kb.. I believe it is now at 91kb.. It's an abstract, but it's got a lot of colors.. :)

OK.. I noticed the board distorted my image by a lot.. I had it 640 x (smaller size), but the board messed it up.. Here's the new image with better quality:

I don't get what's wrong with IMMORTAL's submission. We've had digital photos with just a smidge of Photoshop in them submitted to the digital art comp before, so how is this different? Looks to me like it's a photo + Photoshop.

There is some photoshop work on this, i'll agree with you there. But other than the white faded effects what is the digital manipulation doing to add colour? i mean, if IMMORTAL changed it so the models face was Green or something then i guess it could be accepted, but this is more of a photograph than Digital entry.

Personally, I think if it had more stuff to it then it would be alright, but it has very little modifications to it for it to be digital art.. Plus, says above "You MUST have made the image yourself." That is a Photo.. IMMORTAL did not create the photo.. Even if IMMORTAL may have taken the photo, it wasn't created in a program. If it was a 3D image, I think it would be a different story.. ;)

IMMORTAL, since you seem to be new at this, could you please re-submit your image with your NICKNAME in the title of your image? I've made it very clear in the rules that if you don't, you will be disqualified.

Thanks!

I'd say create an experts/professionals only competition with a little trickier topics.

Ozzu has always been a place where everyone can take part, no matter what level of knowledge they have or what age you were. To dedicate a topic only for those who actually know how to use these kinda programs in a way that makes there work look "professional" would not be necessary.

I like to think the idea of these competitions are not only for fun but for those who are not familiar with photography or digital art to then learn as they take part in the competition therefore producing a better standard of work over time. Practice makes perfect, and these competitions are a good way to do that.

People need to look at seventh's work for example and see what he is doing that they might not be and aim to work on that. Remember, the final submission has to be uploaded by the submission date, so just because you've uploaded something it doesn't necessarily mean that you can't change it and make it better. Just PM 613flavah, Musik, or myself with the new submission link and it will be changed for you. Simple.

I see where you are coming from though CA-SA.

If you were to ask me, I'd say he used some CAD/Animation software for some and layering for the rest.
