Double Screen Compo Voting

Okay - all entries are in and it is time for voting.

Take your time and check the pictures properly. If you like to check it on a C64, I'd recommend to turn off the volume, because music tends to alter atmosphere. Now here come the rules:


Deadline for voting is June 7th 2011 (know it is a long term but c64pixels-visitors are watching random)

Good luck to all contestants !

Sorry to go a bit offtopic here, but I must say that I'm a bit curious on how do people actually spot the references that was used when the artist didn't provide a link?

You'd have to have seen an amazing amount of artworks/photos, as well as remember them to be able to come up with "OH WAIT! Haven't I seen this before?"

Mermaid: Wow, that was actually pretty cool!
It found the "Monroe" reference (but not "Looking outward") when I did a quick test-run. Impressive what can be done with image-analysis today.

to catch "raven" i cut the uploaded image to just the face (because i assumed at the time it was 3 images merged)

then did a left and a right flipped version and ran it thru Tineye.

the uploaded direction had no hits but the flipped version hit on the face of the model immediately.

it's amazing what u can catch by isolating just the face facing left and right :)


EDIT Looking Outward was picked up the fact that it was tagged as Engine House 13 on c64pixels. google image that and you will find it as you scroll down.

this is demoscene.
people were and will pixel (meaning copy, still, wire, etc) the way they like to.

demoscene is about having fun. if one has fun repainting then go for it. i'm thankfull to mermaid that she posted the originals in this thread but for me it was rather a interesting fact of submited pics that they were copied rather than "evidence of crime".

Carrion, once again, no one is saying "don't ever copy". Some of us are saying "please don't submit copies to graphics compos" and "if you copy please show the original picture as well".

"- Racist motives are not tolerated.
Yes, explicit nudity, violence or weird disturbing stuff will be accepted
but only visible for members and not represented on Lemon64 or CSDb."

this is the chapter that would have been changed if i was aware of the things happening. "wired content" is missing to be restricted to members.

the idea of the compo came up while watching those awesome multiscreeners in demos like andropolis or we are new, but also a small fun production that competed in the x2010-gfx-compo: leming's "elephant nipples". 100% wired, obviously no compo winner, but a really nice example to show a small episode with 2 screens.

and this is what the compo was supposed to be: feel free to play with the idea. show us variety. creativity is more important than perfect pixels (btw also somekind of philosophy behind c64p). did you mention that soft-scrolling was recommended and no must? even before-after-pics would have been accepted...

anyway experiments did not really happen. i read about some interesting ideas previosly. like connecting 2 c64 by using rrnet, petscii-designs, diagonal scrollers, ... the focus was on full-screen-gfx at last - which is nice for sure - but thanks to the missing rule about wires caused all this mess. and i am glad that mermaid and jcb submitted the originals and this discussion happens (though i did not sleep well because of this last week, believe me).

again: i did not upload the original pics, because this did not even came up to my mind. tell me if i am wrong, but on major compos it is not exactly common to show them or even asking for them (and please - workstages are no trustworthy source). original artists and references are required tags for c64pixels, still this was no real connection to the compo.

to sum things up:
there will be never any c64pixels compo anymore without public wire-checks.
if wires are accepted, they will be marked and members only.
i do not believe that this way to control validity is practical for parties.
the idea of an originals only compo sounds sexy.

Obviously the final voting scores will be totally skewed, but we're used to that. Might as well forget about voting next time and just show it to the public.

Hope more charmode will be used next time, preferably only 1 charset and no rastersplits.
