Here is the idea for the contest: Since I do not own photoshop, I cannot do my own digi-bashes. So that is why I have called upon the Best of the Best here on this very board to answer my challenge! It is open to anyone who can sucessfully digi-bash and anyone who cannot (I'll explain this in a sec). Here's the idea: I will start by issuing 5 transformer characters to be digi-bashed into other classic characters from previous Transformers series. Each character must be digitally repainted for ANY of their modes (this includes vehicle, robot, etc.). So you can do either just the vehicle or just robot, or just vehicle and robot, etc., and other modes as well. For every participant that can do digi-bashing: Every participant in this category can do any number of challenges listed. This means that you can digi-bash 1 to 1-Billion. There is no limit! Thing is, once you're done with a bash.....it cannot be bashed (edited) further. It must be a final/100% finished digital bash when submitted to the thread. So for those of you doing the photoshopping, take your time and make sure all your decisions in the end are final before you submit it here. You must also place your board name somewhere on the digi-bash pictures as proof of your work. This may be a watermark off to the side or lettering, etc. BUT, it must be easily noticable and easy to read (no fancy-schmancy texts please). You must also put the challenge with your bash. Basically on your pictures write in the challneger's name and the specific number of their challenge. So if you pick my #2 challenge then somewhere on all your digi-bash pics for that specific challenge it must say "Netkid Challenge #2.". This is for reference and for organizing the pictures with their corresponding challenges. Now for anyone else who does not have a photoshopping program: This is where you guys give life to the challenge. Everyone else who cannot digibash or does not wish to do so can submit their own challenges(limit 10 per person. So number your challenges!) to the thread to be taken up by the competing digi-bashers. You must list the toy being digi-bashed(this includes it's size-class), the toy's various forms that you want digi-bashed, the series it is from, and what other Transformer character you would want it digi-bashed into. Here is an example: Netkid Challenge #1. Cybertron: Skywarp(Deluxe) Vehicle & Robot Mode. digi-bashed into Gen. 1 Dirge Colors. The RULES are simple: Anyone who is Digi-Bashing CANNOT submit Challenges. -and- Anyone who is Challenging CANNOT submit Digi-Bashes. to keep track of things: All challenges will be somehow placed on the first post. *and* All digital entries will be placed with each challenge. This is basically a big digital repaint thread! It is so that anyone can try out their ideas and see what they would end up looking like. The thread is also for the purpose of creating insiprational ideas and a source of reference for our fellow customizers who like to repaint their toys. One final goal of this thread is to see who here on the boards can really churn out a good idea and who can execute it best. The person with the best repaint ideas and the person with the best digi-bashes will both be honored knowing that they are the best at what they do here on the boards. I am still currently thinking of a way to: -Have everyone vote for the best "idea submitter" and the best "digi-basher" of the TFW2005 Boards. *and* -A way to honor the winners. Perhaps the mods can make a special kind of badge or avatar for the 2 winners. And also one for everybody who participated. So since this is just an idea of mine, here's a test for anyone who may wish to enter (that is if this thing ever lifts off the ground). Netkid's Challenges (first five): Challenge #1. Cybertron: Skywarp(Deluxe) Vehicle & Robot Mode. digi-bashed into Gen.1 Dirge Colors. Challenge #2. Beast Wars: Magmatron(Combiner) 3 beast modes, 1 combined beast mode, & 1 combined robot mode. digi-bashed into Gen.1 Predaking Colors. Challenge #3. RID: Glavatron/Megatron(Leader) Dragon mode & robot mode ONLY. digi-bashed into Gen.1 Doublecross Colors. Challenge #4. RID: Glavatron/Megatron(Leader) Dragon mode & robot mode ONLY. digi-bashed into Gen.1 Hun-Grrr Colors. Challnege #5. Armada: Skywarp(Maxcon) Vehicle, Vehicle Attack, Robot, & Robot Attack modes. digi-bashed into Gen.1 Thrust Colors. That's all folks!!!!! Have fun!!!!!
