I'd like to do something based on our childhoods. Like a TV show we watched or a toy we played with in our chikdhoods.

Yeah, stock image sounds a more legit way to test everyone's skill. Let's do it.

Basically photos taken for advertising or design, usually submitted to and searchable in online databases to purchase (although some are royalty free). So when a company needs a photo of a woman eating a salad for a diet leaflet or somesh*t, instead of finding a model and making a salad to photograph, they can search for 'woman eating salad' (http://www.istockpho.....0eating salad).

Although, in the context of the comp I think we're not necessarily talking a 'stock photo', but a set image we all have to start from.
For the love of God though, don't make it about GTAV.

Yeah, it's just one image for everyone to make a sig from with their own creativity.

Umm... Wah? mercie_blink.gif

Just because the theme is stock image doesn't mean the stock image will be picked from free stock images. The image can literally be picked from anywhere. SOTW #4 was a picture of a simple sheep in a field. Also there were some amazing entries for that week. So just because the stock image isn't what you want doesn't mean you can't make something out of it.

I suggest anyone who doesn't fully understand what a stock image theme is, go take a look at SOTW #4 and #5. They can be found by using the simple search by at the bottom of your page. You may want to also take a look if you're thinking of participating in this weeks competition.

I know it may be quite a task, but perhaps link the SOTW topics as well in your table.. that way people can see all the sigs entered for each contest. icon14.gif

AEJY, a stock image is a great way to showcase ones skill in creating a signature.. it will weed out those who only add a 'border', instead each artist can add unique touches that ultimately will decide who's the winner. Should join in on it man.. the more you practice, the better you get. wink.gif

Yea, I have been meaning to do that, GunWrath. I'll more than likely revamp the topic tonight and work on the other little thread we talked about. Had a thunderstorm roll threw earlier and we lost power, but everything is good now and I should be able to get everything done.

Also, I think AEJY thought 'stock image' meant we're using an image from stockfreeimages.com

Definitely up for the stock image idea. That's how the first SOTW's were run.

With the recent forum update, I'll be revamping the topic. Also look out for a lot more useful topics coming soon in the visual arts section.

Seems to be a little confusion as to who will create the next SOTW at times.

 

Not saying this is a solid idea but perhaps we should have an application style table for some to fill out or possibly have designated SOTW makers or designated ballot counters. Because at times SOTW's are put on hold until someone musters up the courage or time to count the votes and create the next contest.

Hi Xero! Dude to tell ya the truth there is no telling. It's all up to whoever wants to make the next topic. 

 

Lot of hype for V right now and the visual arts section is experiencing a little drought. We'll get it all back on track very soon though!

GTAF Signature of the Week
A N N O U N C E M E N T

 

As many of you have probably noticed, our weekly competitions has died off and lost its popularity around the forums. I would like to tell everyone that SOTW is returning SOON!

We’re working on a bigger, better SOTW than ever before. If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to leave your remarks here.

I would like to know what all of our SOTW fans want to see in the new competitions. And be sure to check back often for future announcements!

 

(Edit No.1) Something that was brought to my attention as it is a frequently asked question. Yes, the SOTW Discussion/Guidelines page will be updating

and will also be revamping with a more up-to-date look and feel. So this means if you have won a competition recently, your name along with your winning artwork will be added alongside

the others. We were unable to update this for some time with the new forum updates, but thanks to the excellent staff, we are once again able to fully update the page.
