I'm loving the entries that people have been submitting recently on Ozzu competitions. Some great stuff.

I really like this, and in my opinion this would be eligible for the Digital Art Competition.

By the way, is it just me or has the competition topic changed? i'm pretty sure it was "colors/colours" originally. I might just be losing it a bit...

Yeah...my post got deleted/edited :P
Colours has already been done.

Is there any chance on using a different astrological sign? I can think of a few designs but none fit with stupid Virgo lol

SB go ahead, I know the title says YOUR astrological sign but if you just can't come up with anything about yours, use another one. Just make sure to mention it's not your sign.

There is only one (possibly two?) problems with your entry. First of all, i'm not entirely sure what this has to do with Astrological Starsigns, perhaps you can explain?

The main issue however is you've ignored one small but important rule for the competition.

"File name: Please name your entry the same as your username (or as close to as possible)"

You will need to send a PM to any online moderator with an updated URL address where the file is named as your username or as close to the username as possible. It currently won't be accepted in the competition until a new url is submitted.

murcielagossi, if you made that quick I'd love to see more of what you can do when you take your time. That's gonna be a tough one to beat, but I'm going to give it a shot.

great conceptual work everyone. I really love that CE. Excellent work on the background mountains as well as the sky. "RAM Tough"! Bet you could sell that to Dodge.

OK Missy, I got to ask you, what exactly was the black and white? Just the scales? or the "babe" because if the babe was originally B&W and you colored her then I demand a tutorial on how you did it!

Ya, I've done that a few times. In photoshop you can set the image to multiply and you can paint layers under it ATNO/TW. Maybe a new kind of competition? Never done anything that detailed though.

This is an area i'd like to get more into. Very impressive work. Not to be picky, i still sort of fail to see the astrological sign though. I mean, yeah you've got the picture of the libra and the word Libra.

Maybe i'm just being too picky?

I'm new to this forum sorry. Maybe I just misunderstood the whole astrological sign theme thing. None the less I just thought it'd be fun to participate. I didn't really expect to win.

Oh, please don't take this as me criticising your entry. I personally have the problem because i'm just not seeing it. I might also add that it's 5 minutes to 5 in the morning and i've not slept, so i'm sort of being cranky i think too.

If we were to talk about digital art, then by far yours is very very good. To make an image go from B&W to colour is pretty impressive and worthy of entering.

Welcome to the site. Don't let my crankyness deter you from what is actually a really good site full of decent and useful members.

I was just going to say, I'm totally impressed, missy. I've never seen that kind of quality colorization of a b&w photo done so well. Very nice attention to detail.

In which case, i was completely wrong Missy_moon. I apologise.

I'm hoping there's enough here for you guys to figure it out - if not I'd be more than happy to divulge the symbolism. Any takers?

actually nexus I don't get it, I'll admit. I can't even tell what "sign" that's supposed to be. Maybe it's because I essentially ignore astrology. I'd welcome an explanation.

It was supposed to represent Virgo;
1) The M with the loopy around part is the astrological symbol for Virgo.
2) The zodiac wheel is engraved into the stone and she is lying on the Virgo triangle.
3) I couldn't find any stock of a woman who looked innocent, so I chose to make her a non-virgin anymore - hence the quote about why she was judged. Not being "the virgin" anymore and all.

Honestly I think these are some of the better entries we've had in a competition. If we can get a few more, we might succeed in catching all the zodiac signs!

23:59 on Thurs 8th your time is the last minute in which you can submit an entry here at Ozzu. So, you've still got some time left Evenhost.
