What is this?



Today is deviantART's 13th birthday, and you are invited to the party! There are festivities happening all around dA, and you can find a list of them HERE. Be sure to check out the Chats and Forums, especially #CommunityRelations, for fun things happening all day long!

I have a special challenge for all you photomanipulators out there! How many times have you looked back at an old piece of art and said, "Wow, I so want to remake that!" Well, guess what . . . this is your chance do do so, and you could win PRIZES!! :eager:


What do I do?



Select one of your older (i.e. at least 2 months old) photomanipulations. Yes, it must be a photomanipulation! :XD: Your task is to remake that manipulation and give it a new life. You should think about not just recreating the exact same image all over again, but rather recreating it so that it is new, fresh, and a bit different. This is your chance to try new techniques and styles.



What are the rules?


  • Please link us to the old deviation and write that you're submitting to the Rebirthday contest in your artist's comments.
  • You cannot just rebuild the manipulation by going back to an unmerged psd file and editing the layers. You have to start from scratch. EXCEPTION: If you already have the stock cut out, it's okay to still use that.
  • You must change at least one thing about the image to make it new and fresh. For example, if your work was fantasy-themed, perhaps you could make it dark or surreal. If Snow White was biting an apple, perhaps she is now taking a bite out of a sphere painted like the earth. If your model was sitting on the back of a car before, maybe now she is on a dragon. You get the idea. It can be big or small, but something must be different.
  • Your new deviation should be clearly related to the old one-- just fresher and, well, better. So, please use most (around 75% or more) of the same stock as you used in the original one. If you don't have the stock anymore, either re-download it or find something else that is really very similar. You CAN add new elements to it.
  • No bad stock. Stock must be legitimate, and you must credit your stock providers. All of them! :XD:
  • Do your own work and use your creativity. :D Having others tell you what to do will only spoil the fun. This is your opportunity to recreate YOUR vision in a new light.
  • Your work is due to the Rebirthday Folder at CRPhotomanipulation no later than 11:59 PM Pacific Time on Tuesday, August 13, 2013.

Ooooh. I really want to participate, but I really haven't had the time. I've downloaded the original stock, but I need to add something to it, cut out the stock, and do a quick job on it. Oh, boy. :crying:

Do you still need judges? If I can't get this done in time, I'll be happy to judge. :)

I think we're OK on judges. I could use some help with Beyond Boundaries, if you have time. That's going to be a bigger judging commitment, though.

There are some works I always want to remake :) but I never submit it to devianart, and also, If I want to remake entire image, and don't use any of original stock, is that ok ?
Reply
:iconaeirmid:
Aeirmid Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013   Digital Artist
It depends. It should have mostly the same stock or stock that is very similar.
