    Guru wanting game-wallpaper project

    I would like to start a game-invloving 1280x1024 wallpaper, anyone wanna play?

    I have been using Photoshop since version 2.5 (before layers!!), and would be particularly interested in anyone with abstract 3D renders (NOT Bryce landscapes with cage balls!!)

    Any takers for v6 Photoshop??

    What are your plans exactly? Playing it the exact same as Photoshop Tennis but using high-resolution images with games as a theme?

    Or do you want a colaboration (sp?).

    Im kind of new to this tennis, but have read into it a little.

    I thought that it would be nice to get a colab wallpaper out of it, but I would flaten after every round (so we would probably end up with a muddy mess, but who knows it could be very nice

    Theme wise, Im easy, but I'd rather go for just an abstraact composition, with no real theme as such rather than tech style.

    Eventual aim is to produce some nice wallpaper, with the players website urls quite small on... what do you think?

    I also only have a 56k modem, but with umetered access, so I'm not that bothered how long it takes me to download it. Also, if we are flattening as we go along, it shouldn't be too bad... why are you game??

    I want to get something useable out of this at the end for both players. Of course, there will be full credit to the other player in the form of a url on the actual image (this would be the last layer, I don't really want to make this part of the composition/game...just the last process.

    I will be uploading an image to serve with on Tuesday on my webserver, so decide who is up to it, and post a message!

    Remember, im looking to play with someone that is experienced, and can pull of that sexy techno abstract multi-layered style... not shove a badly clipped picture of a Dodge Viper with their head sticking out, saying 'my car', airbrushed on the hood (next game maybe!!)

    Are you confident still... put yourself forward by all means then, Im looking forward to this guys

    The game is starting soon, so decide!!

    I will be starting this game at 7pm GMT.

    The file will be uploaded, and just to clarify the rules a little (a bit different to normal so plaese read!)

    -You will have 48 hours from 7pm GMT to let me know when you have submitted your version. If you have not posted a messag on this board by then, I take it you have forfited the game (and I have won, whoopwhoop!!)

    -The image is to be flatted after you have added your layer, and saved as a RGB LZW compressed TIF to be uploaded onto a server where I can get at it. We could JPEG it if you can't upload, but I have a 1 meg attachment limit on my mailbox.

    -Your layer must comtain some element of the background image... even if it's just a bit of it.

    -The game will have 8 rounds (4 layers each)

    Well, the game will shorly be afoot, so who is up for it...it looks like Neon at the moment. I will be posting a message aprox Tuesday 6.30pm GMT to let you know where you can download the first image from.

    Are you ready then... message will be posted with URL of downloadable 'serve' image at about 6.30pm GMT, with the game officially commencing at 7.00pm GMT.

    I'll let you decide amoungst yourselves who is playing, but no doubt the other people that have shown an interest this time will be taken on next-so sharpen up your layer masks and clipping paths ready!!

    Whoever I see the first message from, saying they have downloaded the image will be the opponent.

    Oh, and by the way... if that is not you Platinum, we'll have to have a game next!! I'll post you a message so you can at least see the outcome when it's finished

    Huh!! Maybe I called this thread the wrong name...who knows, I have seen a couple of other matches though, and didn't want Bryce mountains, nasty Eye Candy fire, bad transformations, and distored crappy type with drop shadow layer effects all over it!!

    The first image (which is nearly ready) you are either gonna think...what the hell is this, this is rubbish... or cool, this is a good starting point for an abstract, techie multilayered comp...game on! Remember, from the start I said this was going to be an abstract composition... have a look at this-

    http://www.halfproject.com/dephrase/index.htm

    -look at the background, ignore the image of the guy... might give you an idea of what I'm going on about. Not that I want to copy, I would be very dissapointed in the game if anyone did... but along these lines would be cool, and I know I can pull it off...just can't wait to see what the other player does!!

    See what you think Platinum... I think it might be best if I upload, and post the URL of a simple page with a smaller version of the first image on so you can check it out without downloading the high res. I'll put a link at the bottom of the page to the high res file.

    Im not trying to exclude anyone, becuase I know how eager I was in my first couple of years in Photoshop!! I don't think anyone is 'out of their depth'... maybe just not on the same wavelength

    Well, here is round one,

    email me at the address in my profile-should be jonnyauk@talk21.com

    to find out the address to download the first image from.

    We'll count the deadline from 48 hours after you post a message in this thread (as the time is shown) saying you got the image...have fun! Oh, and here is a preview

    Incidentally, after looking at the file size, I just went for a vgood quality JPEG, about 450k I think it was...enjoy!

    Can we play nice??

    I have a thought... I know that traditionally it's only 2 players, but I'm no stickler for rules anyways

    Platnum... you want a go too?? If you like the image, and still want to play around with it, I'll play all three of you!! I'm very interested to see what JMulder comes up with...

    Anyway, check out the low res preview, see what you think, drop me a line of you are interested

    Not exactly... I took a bit of the vector artwork, and created a completely new composition for the game. I hope you like it My actual logo is very different (but it's not on my website), as it the background on my website if you look closely. It actually makes very nice wallpaper already (I'm using it on my laptop at the moment!).

    Well, I mailed you the URL or the high res... probably take about 3-4 mins to download...enjoy, and I will await your return!

    No worries Platinum... however, I will be posting low res ones for everyones perusal, as the above images are all about 500k!

    Give me a few hours (I have some other things to do), and then I'll put them all up on a page, with a link here (and you won't have to wait ages for them to appear!!)
