« on: 27 Jul 2003, 22:23 »
Ok ladies and gentleman, this time we are going to be drawing a gateway between worlds. to be more specific "A tear in the space time continumn allowing access between worlds".  Could be a portal , could be a magical wardrobe, could be anything!

GO!

[EDIT]
My GOD Rincewind, gimmie a chance to realise first before you come in here and post stuff like 30 secs after me! :)

320 x 200 Resolution
No Restriction on colours

GO!   Again!

Hehe, the fact the the lake is the portal is what made me think of Narnia of course, as in the first book ;).
I'm still thinking of an original portal..
All the entries look great so far!

The Magician's Nephew to be more precise hehe, is the first book in a series called Narnia.
The sorcerers apprentice could be a movie for all I know, but I don't think I've heard of it.

Yes, Slamgrinder, I'm on The horse and his boy, pretty much not very far, it is a little boring for me too but I don't want to skip a thing, besides I think it'll improve, and it's not that boring really.
Anyway the first one I read was The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which was the first to come out even though second in the series hehe, and probably the most well known. If I ask a friend from my school for example (one that at least reads sometimes lol) if he or she have heard of "The Lion..." then they'll probably say yes, but if I ask about one of the other books no will likely be the answer for most. I dunno if many will even know it's part of a series called Narnia heh. :P

As I said however, The Magician's Nephew is my favorite. :)

As for the theme, you made me think of Grim Fandango (of course, everything makes me think of Grim Fandango ;D) when you said 'train ride to the other side'. That passanger guy (a ghost I see) is great! Great image! This's is gonna be really hard to vote about. :)

This isn't really a background a character would walk around in but its a background like if you zoomed in on an object seperatly (like self-portraits of talking characters). It was orginally made somewhere in the 400x300 and then I decreased the size.

Color Burn and Color Dodge is what I use to shade the image in. But before that I make a B&W drawing in outlines, fill in with basic colors, and shade in. Dodge tool can be used to add scratchs and dents in. Alot of these techniques are used in skinning guns like in Counter-strike. But since I dont have a tablet i cant get the best results yet.

My first post people!

It's cool that this very first post is applying for contest :)
Anyway, work probably says more than words, so here you are.

btw, the idea I first had is that a bunch of captions pop out, saying "NOT-A-PORTAL" or "portal is the other way" or sth. like that (although its obiviously a portal). But then I realised it would be too difficult to have so many letters at 320x200.

Oh crap, I knew that there will be some probs with this free hosting thing. anyway, try this one:

http://www.iownjoo.com/freeimghost/Witchsmeller/no-portal.jpg

and thanks for good comments :D

the interdimensional portal looks like brain... and it really "pulls in".
Is that a human shadow? It looks sort of a ghost since its lighter, not darker... anyway cool one :)

Oh and I like the white krock.... I mean dragon? It would be cool if it had yellow lasers striking from his eyes, but would not have *that* much with portal I guess.

thanks man! Train is great also, really! Yellow guy is funny :D Its kind philosophical, right?
Unfortunately, the main idea I had, had to be thrown away (I spent about 1 hour doing all details on A4 paper just to realise (at the end) that most of these won't be seen). This way it is a quality-painted portal in the space, but I'm afraid it has lost it's "main form" as being "NOT-A-PORTAL"  ::)

But I better keep my mouth shut, I could lose precious votes  :-X
anyway, glad you like it.

thank you thank you
I'll think about a tutorial, actually I was just "re-making" some MI3 bacgrounds, saving a lot of "progress" files, so someone could see the whole process. It won't be better than Bill's of course ;D but I think it won't be bad at the end.

And, the guy on the top is not the LA guy, he's Leonardo's guy ;)
Perfect proportions and stuff. It should say how that is a place of perfection, in the middle of the universe, portal between worlds, dimensions... that sort of things.

oh and its not a bubble, but it really looks like one :D

WanderLady,
I love it, I can't quit laughing.  Just the thought of someone using it cracks me up. ;D

Noed:  Thank you for your kind words. It makes me happy to have made you laugh.  :)

I may have done the picture, but I have to give credit ALL those who've posted on the forums. I was only able to do it by studying them, since I'm not a good 'drawler'. Credit to you, them, all...but all glory to God.

Darko: Thank you for your kind words also. What's being sucked in is the number(8) that was on that hopscotch space. :)

DG: Many thanks for the help. :)


Peace

Looks great LGM!
Reminds me of S&M's portal mirror thing, hehe.

Hmm, today's the 13th, so do we vote now?
It's been really tough, but I think I finally made up my mind, lol, it was extremely hard to choose though, with tons of great entries/

Ooh, this is really, really hard to decide... I don't think I've seen this many good entries in long time.
Plasticmans hand-drawn one was great, it had an original and cool style,
and both Evilspacefarts and Witchsmellers were awesome, but I cast my vote on Wanderlady - funniest idea, and curliest clouds. ;)

Everyone's was great: WanderLady' was just hilarious, as was Dunezone's, but in the end I was torn between evilspacefart, Witchsmeller and Plasticman.

But after a long time of really hard thinking, I decided to go with....

Witchsmeller's. :)

Damn, they were all so great!

"Portal Open" I love that ;)

edit: Vote people! :P

paranoia and witchsmeller are both great, and wanderlady is so funny, but if I had a gun to my head I'd choose....witchsmeller (by the way, can someone send help? I think he might shoot)

It took awhile to decide, but I finally asked myself,
"Which one would I like to go through?".


And the answer is Rincewind's.

I think swimming through the portal would be an experience.

For the record, if I would have used similar criteria I would have voted for dunezone...I picture a raspberry tart warming in there and it makes me happy all over! ;D

Are we done with this? These things are really off schedule. :P


Oh yeah, my vote. I'll go with wanderlady for the most imaginitive background that can actually be used in a game as a background. ._.

If people want to make general pictures, like conceptual stuff, I could start another artitude. ._.

Which portal I'd like to go through? Not the microwave (I like the 'portal open'), probably the

WanderLady's! Traveling along with number 8 should be interesting enough.

Oh the irony!

Just as Background Blitz was about to finish it becomes a draw...

Witchsmeller = 3 votes
Wanderlady =3 votes
Rincewinds = 1 vote

So the once again BBlitz is extended a couple of days for anyone else who wishes to vote.

a couple of days? You just need one more vote to decide. ._.

I think its better to wrap this up at this point, so the next one at least starts on a weekend. :P

Besides, you might end up in a tie after a coupla days too. @_@
