50. Play time…


Contest goal:
The goal of this contest is very simple: take any gray-scale photo and give it more colors! If you don’t have a gray-scale photo, take a color photo and turn it into gray-scale first… then give it completely different colors. You can also use an old black and white photo that was made before color photography was invented, and then colorize it as realistic as possible. ( Example tutorial: Colorize a vintage photo ) Realism is not necessary however, you can also give unusual colors and color combinations to your photo… Combinations that do not exist in real life. Don’t forget to post the originals in your source list, or in your SBS guide. Drawings are not allowed. Your photo must be fully colorized, no gray-scales can be visible in your work. Good luck!

34. Star Dust Fairy


Contest goal:
Take any picture of a person and give this person special light effects. For example, you could add some halo, have electricity bolts come out of the hands, add one or more flares around the body, etc… To give some examples: – Example 1Example 2Example 3 As you can see from these example, your light effect doesn’t have to be attached to the person, but the person must have some interaction with it (either creating the light, or emmitting it.) Just “shining” a light on the person will be considered off-theme. A few good tutorials which you can use to achieve this (and use your interpretation of it) can be found here: – Adding light streaks to a photo…How to create light beams…Motion spotlight photo effect…How to create amazing light effects…Grungy style artwork with great light effects…Glowing light strokes… (video) Good luck!

33. Bubble


Contest goal:
We all experience gravitational force, day by day. Your goal in this contest, though, is to create anything that illustrates the exact opposite of gravitation! Show off your blending skills and make anything or anyone float in mid-air on planet earth. It can be anything you like, but the more anti-gravity effects in your photo, the better. It’s all is up to your imagination. Have fun!

32. best buddy’s


Contest goal:
It’s often said that pets look like their owners or the other way around. This contest is about applying that theory in the most realistic manner possible, so, for example, do not give the owner a dog’s face, but modify some of the facial characteristics in such a manner that if you should pass by that person on the street, you’d think of how it resembles a dog. This can be done by giving both pet and owner a similar haircut or similar clothes. Also remember to use a regular pet (nothing like cows, giraffes or elephants.). Both the pet and the owner must be visible in your entry.

7. Dick Dastardly


Contest goal:
Bugs Bunny, the Smurfs, Tom & Jerry, Homer Simpson, Eric Cartman, Peter Griffin, Stewie,… : all kinds of cartoon characters that made millions of people put a smile on their face for the last couples of decades. All these cartoons were drawn, and your goal in this contest is to make them “alive”, a depiction of how they would look like in real life. You can only use photos to achieve this and you can only pick out animation cartoons which are originally made in 2D/drawn (so no 3D cartoons allowed). The photo-transformed cartoon can be from the old animations or from nowadays, as long as they look like the original ones, as much as possible. Not sure what this is all about? Check out Homer Simpson alive, by pixeloo. Good luck!
