From ArtPearl:

"Interaction"  This can be interactions between people (good or bad), interaction with or between animals, and even abstract interactions between shapes and lines between colors... I'm sure people will find more variations.

I think this theme will be a great challenge!  This challenge is for everyone, regardless of their creative tools.  Everyone can enter, whether they are using 2D, 3D, fractal, animation or any other software;  whether they are photographers, writers or even musicians.  The challenge arena is open to all.  Come and join in, test your creative tools against all the others!

Let's run this until the last week of March, I will give you a day or so heads up and if anyone needs more time they can let me know.  You may enter an existing work if you like, but we would prefer to see a new work created for this challenge... it IS a challenge after all, lol!  You may enter more than one work, but remember that in the voting, each entry will be judged separately.  Please, please, please put titles on your entries, especially if you have more than one.

Letus see  your inspiration!!!

awesome theme, bound to inspire many interpretations!  guess i'll kick it off for the entrants since the drawing i just completed seems to fit the theme nicely - interaction between light and shadow!  (follow link to see the actual image...)  for those of you who are interested in artistic minutiae, i drew this free-hand in powerpoint - took me much of my free time since last august, lol.  hope you like it - and best of luck to all entrants!

Oh, yes! This is beautiful!

It is so beautiful, Michael.

I dont know if this will do. I mean, there is an interaction between organics and none organics.


  bangonthedrums    ( ) ( posted at 11:59AM Sat, 06 March 2010  · @3612108

thank you helle!  :)

i think your organic/inorganic interaction does quite well - nice interpretation!


  helanker    ( ) ( posted at 1:26PM Sat, 06 March 2010  · @3612158

Thank you Michael. :)


  helanker    ( ) ( posted at 2:24PM Sun, 21 March 2010  · @3619537


Can we use an animation here?
Isnt this a kind of interaction?


  tresamie    ( ) ( posted at 8:54PM Sun, 21 March 2010  · @3619690

That's terrific!  Of course animation is allowed, as long as the file size will load here or in the gallery!  What fun :)

cool animation, helle - how did you do that? (lol, can you see that it's been awhile since i've peeked in here?)


  helanker    ( ) ( posted at 11:43AM Thu, 01 April 2010  · @3624580


Thanks Michael.
I use Psp9 and Animation shop, which goes with the program.
I used only 2 pictures in 2 layers and saved it as a Psp image with both layers available.
Opened the Animation Shop and loaded the Psp files and i used these settings, which is th first:


  helanker    ( ) ( posted at 11:44AM Thu, 01 April 2010 · edited on 11:44AM Thu, 01 April 2010 · @3624582


and then i used these settings and saved it as an animation.


  helanker    ( ) ( posted at 11:46AM Thu, 01 April 2010  · @3624585


And this is the result:


  bangonthedrums    ( ) ( posted at 12:21PM Thu, 01 April 2010  · @3624611

pretty neat - thanks for the how-to, helle!  one of these days i might just have to check out some software that was intended to be used to create art, lol, instead of going the cheapskate's route! :)


  helanker    ( ) ( posted at 12:38PM Thu, 01 April 2010  · @3624625

Well I must say Michael, that what you have used until now, looks pretty awesome and Pro to me.


  bangonthedrums    ( ) ( posted at 8:16PM Thu, 01 April 2010  · @3624818

awww helle, you are too kind - thank you!  :)


  bangonthedrums    ( ) ( posted at 7:31PM Thu, 13 May 2010  · @3644460

what happened to all the artists who used to submit such wonderful works to this forum's monthly challenges?  ...perhaps we should offer free cookies for each entry submitted?  there's got to be some way of rekindling the spirit of competition!  :)

maybe if the winning piece/artist were to be featured on the next rr newsletter cover...?

just a thought, viv!

Everything seems real quiet. I wantz0r challenge!


  tresamie    ( ) ( posted at 8:27PM Wed, 26 May 2010  · @3649863

 I am thinking that suggestions are needed here!  Does anyone have any?  It feels like most people are more in their comfort zones when they participate in a challenge specific to their preferred software.   This arena is so much fun because it allows so many different types of expressions.  Interest seems to come and go here, and lately even my going to all of the relevant forums and challenging members to come here has not been working.

I will keep my thinking hat on, but if you have any suggestions... or even want to start a challenge thread here with a great idea, please be my guest :D

  bangonthedrums    ( ) ( posted at 2:06AM Thu, 27 May 2010  · @3649954

the idea that jumps to mind is the one i suggested in my last entry - arranging for front-page visibility in the rr newsletter for each month's challenge winner; just a modest announcement, perhaps with link(s) to winner's (or top-3 entrants') works.  people seem to respond well to opportunities to gain a wider viewership of their works...

just a thought...

  VanDoe    ( ) ( posted at 10:46AM Fri, 28 May 2010  · @3650513

I agree with bang, but that is really a no brainer, cuz any site wants viewers to come back, if you entice the creators to pull in more viewers with a 'humble mention'. I mean, we're not talking an article here, so there really wouldn't be that much 'oh we couldn't possibly do that, it's too much'.

But holds up finger I think tresamie was lookin' fer challenge ideas!

I dunno why, but May makes me haiku-ish, probably some old primary skool flashbacks, similar to coloured tissue paper, a pencil and dipped in glue, see? flower!

My suggestion for the death of May slash June challenge is a haiku with supporting image


  VanDoe    ( ) ( posted at 11:16AM Fri, 28 May 2010 · edited on 11:24AM Fri, 28 May 2010 · @3650528

Or since a lot of the gallery ends up portraits, and a challenge is a challege outside the comfort zone and everyone generally has a character they dig...oooOOOoooo, yeah

a fan art challenge

Whether its your fave Lost character
"Kate, you lied to me..." /end nasal

maybe Starbuck as a girl (-heart Katee Sackhoff)

Wolverine in drag (rah hahahahahahah!)
"Dood, you shoulda wore stilletto's..."
'They were bub, do you know how much I weigh?'

or maybe another childhood inversion

What if there was this good wizard Lemagrag (like legolas but different)
and he is constantly terrorized by the Frums, and small race of diminuitive blue...no green funky pixies.

et cetera(cubed)


  VanDoe    ( ) ( posted at 11:21AM Fri, 28 May 2010  · @3650533

If I were completely unabashed amoral or otherwise bereft of the concern for artistic sensitive albeit metaphorical skin, I'd suggest a 1 page story board/comic. 6 image minimum, 6 word minimum...

Ok, done for now...no wait....thoughtful pose, yeah I'm done

 Actually, I was looking for any ideas that might draw more attention and/or ways to let more members know we even exist. :b_cool:  Thanks for all the interesting ideas so far... I am still open to more!

Well after more thought on the subject, usually a contest has a prize, now money is really hard for some people to give up, even if it's their site, and such gift certificates, well, don't really count, unless you have to pay vendors, then it costs something, unless of course you also not only own the site but are also a vendor, uh oh.

So, enticements

  1. get some popular vendors to front some prize-a-rella (one thing from my store)
    -the artist will obviously use it, which is advertising for that vendor
    -if the vendor is in agreement, that nulls any monetary tax issues on loss of cough virtual product and/or book-keeping

I mean, if every month, there is a monthly freebie, this isn't altruism in its barest sense, it's advertising cuz that page always reads: 'and for more great stuff, check out my store'

  1. some kind of web badge/graphic to go on the artist homepage and/or MyFacedotcom, if this is about bragging rights, 'whadya want a medal? Fine, here' BAM!
    -maybe at the end of the year, these can translate into some form of gift certificate-ish thing, or if the winner is a vendor, a lighter house take on 1 item.

  2. Bite the bullet and give house money(gift certificate) & honourable mention in the newsletter

thought i'd sneak in a quick dumb question:  is the 'interaction' challenge still active? ...dead?  ...been decided and i missed it?

ok, so i had 3 dumb questions, lol...


  tresamie    ( ) ( posted at 12:12AM Sat, 12 June 2010 · edited on 12:12AM Sat, 12 June 2010 · @3657314

 

 

I know this challenge has not gone well, but let's vote on it and move on!  Maybe we can really come up with a great theme for the next one.  The voting will be in this thread, after this entry.  You get to choose your 3 favorite entries, giving each of them 3, 2 or 1 points.  Remember, you are choosing an entry, not an artist.  If someone has posted more than one entry, you need to indicate which is your choice.  

Your vote should look something like this:

Inter - "Action" - 3 points

Name - "Title" - 2 points

come-to - "Gether" - 1 point

Feel free to nominate Honorable Mentions or make comments.

well, viv, you may have to decide the winner, looks like... i've poked my head in almost daily to see if anyone's voted yet, and am disinclined to vote if the answer continues to be 'no,' on the grounds that i wouldn't want to turn out to be the one who unilaterally determines the challenge winner.  you on the other hand, as moderator, would be a logical choice if any one person is to make that determination... what do you think about that idea?

  bangonthedrums    ( ) ( posted at 9:15PM Thu, 12 August 2010  · @3687140

so i guess the challenge i and others entered is officially dead?  :(


  tresamie    ( ) ( posted at 9:35AM Fri, 13 August 2010  · @3687341

 I honestly felt you were all winners, even tho the participation was minimal.  I hope you will be pleased with the new challenge I will be setting up.

This is what I think of when I think of interactions. :) Maby a bit late but hey at least you all can see it.

And to answer the question as how to make these chalanges better give Renderosity gift certificates or have them posted on one of the emails that goes out. I know I would LOVE to be in one!


  Tracybee    ( ) ( posted at 8:53PM Wed, 14 September 2011  · @3840085

Is this Forum still active?

Waiting for next challenge with baited breath :)

Actually found this Forum by chance and maybe a "note" in other Forums may lead folk to this Forum ?

It seems like such a good idea to have this one. Most folk like a Challenge.

Goodluck !

No, it stopped being active last year March... Since then I've been doing the challenges in the Bryce forum. Might do the Poser one if I get really bored and RL is not happening... :lol:
