Thank you very much!
Planets, asteroids, and comets; distant stars, galaxies and supernovas! All of it very cool, and for some of you the embodiment of dreamy phantasies. This contest is all about that! Create a space scene of you choid in GIMP! This could be a lost asteroid traveling through space, like the image above. It could be just some detailed planets, or maybe collisions of a planet with an asteroid. Or are you more into alien stuff and space ships? :)
You can combine photos to create a new scene like I did, but you can paint too, or mix your painting with photos. This depends all on your imagination. The only thing that matters is that the final outcome is a scene that has “space” as main topic.
Have fun :)
My example: Last piece of earth can be found here in high resolution.
- Create a space scene in GIMP with this as main topic
- You can use photos only, or paint, or mix both of it
- You can use more programs beside GIMP for it. Nevertheless, please make sure that the main work is done in GIMP.
- You can upload up to three submissions
- Only submissions that were uploaded with the Upload-Tool are accepted
- You need to upload the .xcfbz2 workspace file too. Please make sure to compress it before uploading. (Use Save as… → “filename.xcfbz2”)
