Guys, does anyone have suggestions for photographs and digital art? A dozen of each and we'd be good to go.

I'm trying to even things out a bit with the formats, but yeah I'll start the challenge regardless with what I've got. (Not that I haven't got interesting stuff already)

On June 1st I'll randomize the list of participants with the list of artwork, and everyone will get their stuff. Sort of like the theme challenge.

If someone wants to participate and their name's not on the list, shout out now.

Sounds neat, add me to the mix. I think I can come up with something neat for whatever the artwork is.

Of course I'm in.

How do you plan to handle the artworks? I think it'd be best if you sent them by pm and nobody showed them up until submission time.

I thought about making them private, but what's the use? I think I'll make the pool of artwork public instead. Users may choose to disclose what they've received, or not.

I have little idea how successful an endeavor this might be, but I'd like to at least try. Count me in.

You're in.

Man, I've been shortlisting for a couple of days now. Tons of stuff. Hopefully I'll be able to post the list tonight.

I've uploaded the list. Unfortunately, the MA forum is being a complete bitch for me today. It's taking me half an hour to login and another to post/edit.

Anyway, please share your thoughts about the list. I know, the numbers are gay. I'll try to fix those later.

I've tried my best to diversify the pool. I'll be adding a few more before June 1st.

Fantastic selection! All of the pictures loaded fine for me, and I am glad to know that others here really appreciate Dalí. I think there was a lot of digital art and surrealism but you definitely succeeded in keeping it diverse as far as I am concerned. Thanks for not using any Jackson Pollock stuff.

Just added some more stuff to equalize with those.

Also, some of the paintings might appear digital-ish because they have been retouched (not by me) to enhance their colours and such.

So how and when will the artwork be assigned to each of us?

I'm actually quite looking forward to this now. From these images I can't see myself doing anything that isn't at least slightly out of my comfort zone. This should be fun.

Pretty nice selection. I'm glad I only knew/familiar with 34 of the 66.

Very interesting batch here. Especially dig those displaying industrial/urban decay (and the ones that are just bizarre).

June 1st. I will be using this to randomize the list of artwork with the list of participants. You will all receive your assignments by PM, so make sure that you login on that day!

I'll be updating the OP to include more information and guidelines as well.

Some really fascinating / interesting images in there. It will be interested to see what people do with them.

Should we allow for a redraw, in case someone gets something they really don't like?

Yeah I can make that work, but I'll allow it once and it will be definitive; no switching back to your first draw. I'll make that clear in the OP.

People who sign up late will also get assigned something btw.

That seems fair. I'm up to do my best with most of the pieces, but a few scream tech death to me and that's way beyond my guitar skill.

Would be cool if we could do a poll after the contest. Maybe separated into rounds and the winner at the end wins "something", could definitely be done. Sucks that I'm not a musician, these images are very cool.

From the thread on the previous challenges it looks like they started out that way, then stopped having the winner win anything, then stopped having a winner. Personally I prefer the current format where no one "wins" but everyone provides feedback because it is weird to me to have one song win over another. I can see how others would be into it though.

Also, you should become a musician! For me it has been infinitely rewarding and challenging and it doesn't take much to pick up a cheap used instrument to start off with. I only press it because it sounds like you wish you were a musician with that comment. I think it helps me appreciate music on a different level, not that non-musicians don't appreciate music as much, I just feel that its interesting to hear something and know what goes into playing it. All of the cool kids are doing it.

I second that emotion, but I don't think I will redraw if I end up with something I don't like. Nothing against anyone who does redraw, but I plan to roll with whatever I get even if it puts me somewhere uncomfortable musically.

Well, you could discuss the songs you liked on your podcast and make someone famous. :P

I think having a winner is a definite plus to something which is basically a contest to create something better than everyone else's. I'm thinking we could judging the same way as when there were those best-of-genre games such as this one here. With people voting each day for a predetermined period of time until we get a winner.

I'm not interested in winning anything, and I won't vote. Do whatever you want though. I'm just using this as a way to shake things up a bit for myself creatively.
