The Never Ending Painting.

Hey guys! So I want to try this out and see how far it goes. The idea is simple, I have painted a quick 5 minute painting of an empty field from some random photo on google. Then somebody else takes the painting, and adds something to it, be it a lake, a house, a rocketship, a flock of white birds in the upper corner :P or sexy naked ladies (lookin at you wakk.)

The idea is to just keep the painting evolving and changing, if you see a problem with perspective or anatomy, fix it. Paintovers are ENCOURAGED, this will also be a great way for the better painters to share their knowledge with the less experienced participants in a simple before and after kind of way.



The Rules.

1) 2/3 of the previous version must remain intact, meaning you cant just paint over the whole thing and have a new painting.

2) No filters ie. lens flare, lens correction, mosaic tiles, etc

3) I'm gonna say no photo materials used, but if you do 3d and want to do paintovers of say a sketchup building or something of the sort I say go for it.

4) Changing the color scheme is allowed, as long as the integrity of the painting is kept to the 2/3 rule (its daytime, and you want to change it to night time, go for it)

5) Don't get butthurt when somebody draws over your totally radical monster or space ship. The painting is meant to change, and It will. This is the point.

6) No shitty anime or wolf-people, take that crap to deviant art

7) Bonus points for explosions, dinosaurs, pretty ladies, and volcanoes.

8) This might happen, and I don't really know if this is the best way to deal with it, but If 2 people end up working on the painting and post 2 different versions at the same time, the next person shall choose one of the 2 latest versions to improve upon. If yours wasn't the one that was selected, I'm sorry. Move on and work on a later version of it!

9) make sure that when you post the next version, It stays the same size pixel-wise


10) Have fun and keep the painting going!


This is the Beginning! Who's up next!?

    The moral of this painting is that you just don't fuck with cows. Especially if you're a giant pickle with rage issues.

    yes it is. i love majoras mask. The game has great artistic style, and i love the overall dark theme to the designs. It's too bad it was developed on a poor console.
