Challenge ONE

Challenge 1

Alexa Rohan stood with her hands on her hips before the up-and-coming models. Her innocent rolls of hair bounced against the wind that had gathered around them, and no one made a sound as they admired the scenery. Alexa allowed a slight smirk to overcome her fresh face.

Models…we’re here at the scene of your very first challenge. Don’t be alarmed, this volcano is not to erupt until a couple of years from now, but I still want to see some eruption coming out from all of you—eruption of both pose and facial expressions.

Some of you before me have been rejected from the fashion business, you haven’t made it far…Agencies say you’re not what they’re looking for, or you just don’t cut it. However, I believe there is something inside each one of you…you just have to collect yourselves and transform all of this energy into something productive, something NEW. All of the criticism that you may have received can be used in a positive way. You just have to learn how to become stronger and rise from it all! That’s why for this week you girls will all portray…





Phoenixes

We will be shooting a promotional photo for this competition…to get the word around about all of you fresh new faces. And since the theme for this competition is about fantasies we want all of you to seem flawlessly beautiful and modelesque. You’ll have to really rock this shoot because you’re not going to be the only one in this photo. Yes, all of the models around you will be in it as well…and you’re going to need to outshine them, because that’s all it’s about in this industry: Being better than the girl next to you….and you’ll surely book the job. 

For this specific shoot I want you to fly like a phoenix. No, I don’t want any superman poses; I want something elegant and effortless. Inspire me and surprise me…also remember that your hair must be down and you must wear the outfit I have assigned to you all below. And since you’ll all be wearing the same clothing, it’s really going to come down to pose and expression—so kick it out of the park here! 

The winner of this challenge will be awarded a very special prize, along with two other models. Remember to:
  • Save in .PNG format
  • Make it transparent (since it will be going in a background, which I will edit)
  • Full body shot
  • 500w x 800h (Of course you don’t have to take up all of the room, but it should be scaled enough to where your head and feet reach the ends of the dimensions.)
Here is the outfit:



It can be found over at GLAMOROUS LOUNGE. It’s under women, in the fifth page!
This challenge will be due February 10, 2008.
If you must have an extension, ask…but there must be a valid excuse.
Rock this!

How is this? Is this what you were talking about? I've never done this before, either, so any suggestions would be really welcomed. ^^;;
Man, I'm still trying to figure out how YOU did that!
Um, well, I took a ton of pictures of various things (the Bubble Blower animation, and other things that looked kind of like flying). The torso in this picture is from a picture of her doing the hula. The legs are from a pose where she's leaning against a wall, and the head is from a straight headshot. Then I just pasted them all together and smudge tool'd the edges.

Also, I should mention that the outfit in my game is hyper-glitchy. The boobs kind of...fractal. It looks like she has two GIGANTIC POINTY nipples per breast. Oh, and her neck juts out sideways and is also, consequently, pointy. So I had to photoshop that out to make her look normal, lol.

And...er...yeah. Deleted the background and exported it as a .PNG. Does that answer your question?
I only have Photoshop Elements that I got for Christmas. (steep learning curve for me.) I'm having trouble with the textures interfering with the magic lasso/selection thingy. I will still try!
I've never used Photoshop Elements. I've got CS2, but I just switched to it from Photoshop 5.0, which I've had for years and years. It's mostly the same, but with some crucial differences. I miss Paint Shop Pro 7, kinda. It was really good for individual pixel work, or working with .gifs. Especially animating.
Mind you, I'm not really getting a phoenix impression from this picture. To me it says more like, "Star Trek Enterprise: The Musical." lol.

MAAAAAAN!

That's so nice. Now I feel like I should do mine over before I post it.

:(

Re: MAAAAAAN!

Pish! Don't go changing anything because of me. If you want to change it for yourself, go ahead. But I'll bet you five bucks that yours is just as good as mine and you're being modest.
Yeah that's exactly how I wanted it! (But I must refrain from actually commenting on it...:P)
I'd recommend changing the settings on the post so that comments must be approved so that people won't comment on the submitted pictures.
I would allow for others to comment on the submitted photos...however, this won't be the same for photoshoots. (They won't even be able to see the photos until the elimination)
I actually like being able to see the other applicants put their stuff in!
Thanks. ^_^ Just wanted to make sure I was doing it right.
