First CSDb "Unintended cool picture pixelling challenge"

Hi guys. Carrion has this great idea about pimping up Compopic and having a compo about it. Anyone in?

I think the less restrictions there are, the better the outcome will be.

Noooo I don't want hundreds of converted shite.

Jailbird same here. I meant creative constraint rules like above Ryk had suggested... like what should exactly be on the pic.

What Oswald sez.

Ain't afraid of no wire.

Maybe I got it wrong, as I thought this compo was for fun and open to low quality fun stuff and nothing anybody had to troll with soso quality or wired pictures. Actually some wiring will be involved in at least one of my pics. Hmh... If it is getting too serious, I'm maybe out but (more likely) I don't care but release it out of competition anyway or risk being disqualified.

On Rambo Revisiting I have learned this.

"Raw" wiring is a part of creative process, for many artists, but what makes the difference, is openness about one's creative process and honesty.

What should be strongly fought against, is plagiarism. An organiser should maintain the strong right and freedom to select the final competing graphics. He should be able to remove any entry, while giving competent reason why that happened.

I don't think every entry has right to enter, but I also don't believe that conversion is not part of the process of most for many of todays artists. Like... when you sketch by hand, and then convert the sketch to computer.. that's also wiring, but it certainly not plagiarism. But imagine you convert manually, and "forget" to give credit to oroginal author. That's bad. And if you give the credit, that still might not prevent your pic from being removed from the compo, but it brings value to the C64 scene on its own terms. Especially if it's beautiful conversion.

I wish I could say that simpler. It's a lot of words.

Let's try again:

Authority and experience of organizer, honesty of artists, artistic merit of pics, that should be parameters of solid c64 gfx competition. Or any competition.

The more I read, the more I miss the fun aspect. Leading to reduced motivation to polish "crap" wiring. If I'm disqualified anyway, why wasting time on polishing. Guess I stop polishing and release as crappy version as possible soonish - no matter if there's a compo then or not =P

Wire as much as you want, but not in compos, I'd say. It's not the same thing as pixel and create stuff yourself, thus is not supposed to compete with stuff people made themselves from scratch.

C64 scene has matured into an art movement on it's own. If your goal is having fun with C64 then why do you bother others by ranting in the forum. Have fun. If you are aiming for something more. Do something more, and you get something more in return. So simple.

If you want to make crap and get praise, why not releasing it outside the scene. Easy. Make a c64 convert pic, post it to your social network profile. Collect likes. Pixels are cute, nobody will blame you for wiring, many of them will actually think you are kinda cool.
