Hi guys, after a discussion with fabledgoat we are introducing a new
rule which will be tried out to see how it goes. The following notice has been posted in the other current WIP threads to give everyone sufficient notice.
Notice: Challenge Rule update!
the request of several members the following rule will be implemented
in future challenges - from the beginning of the next weekly (31/May),
and the next Monthly (1/June).
From that point, anybody wishing to have their entry included in voting MUST
include at least 2 WIP stages in the WIP thread. In order to make it
easier to find these WIPs when setting up voting, entrants MUST also
include 2 "clickable" links direct to their own WIP stages in the
relevant WIP thread. Entrants can post far more than 2 WIP stages if
they like in the WIP thread, as long as 2 seperate links are included
with the image posted in the Final Entry thread. Both links must show different stages
of the pictures development and neither WIP image can be the finished entry (i.e. you can't just post a couple of quick
early pencil sketches for WIP and skip to the the finished pic). The timing of these posts is not important as long as they are within the current WIP/challenge period.
entry not including 2 valid links (as described above) will be
disqualified and not be included in the voting list. It will be the
responsibility of the entrant to ensure the links are there and that
they link to the correct artwork. Even If you have posted artwork in
the WIP thread, you will still be disqualified from entry if you do not
supply the links to those images.
Any questions about this should be asked in this thread to make it easier for everyone to find. This post will be updated with any clarifications.
The answer to one question already is that the links must be to the actual post where your WIP image is located. This means you are required to post in the relevant WIP thread for each challenge. I've attached a quick guide to help (click the pic to make it bigger if necessary)...
example: the URL of this post is http://community.imaginefx.com/forums/permalink/107660/107660/ShowThread.aspx#107660 and I would need to include another post link like that to another WIP.
