Giggles: I guess something like that will work... ( 5 years and 1800 days ago )
Giallo: are we allowed to use photo references? ( 5 years and 1800 days ago )
scratzilla1: to get ideas for this comp GOOGLE TYPOGRAPHY.. Thanks for asking about reference photos Giallo. I was wondering if we could use a reference. ( 5 years and 1800 days ago )
CMYK46: The way I see this, we're using only letters and numbers in our design...I assume brushes are considered outside sources too? ( 5 years and 1800 days ago )
elficho: the rules say nothing about brushes so i think so too.. which would make half of these entries off theme. i would NOT want to be a mod right now! ( 5 years and 1800 days ago )
CMYK46: Well, it's not hard to make a design with only letter forms...most fonts have interesting forms to work with! ( 5 years and 1800 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Brushes from the internet are considered as outside sources and cannot be used. ( 5 years and 1799 days ago )
dmspaulding07: What about the use of ASCII? ( 5 years and 1799 days ago )
nasirkhan: There are some software available, which generated ascii art using user specified image. IMO using Ascii Art Generator software for contest is not fair ( 5 years and 1799 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Well, I had to do a bit of research here, the use of Ascii Art Generator software will not be allowed ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
Keiley22: i would suggest to people to not type in typography because the first link that i get is this http://www.noupe.com/design/40-killer-typographic-posters-photoshop-effects-and-tutorials.html if you look at them all, you will see there are pics ect in them. Iv'e noticed a fe entries have pictures in them, is that allowed? ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
bedic: No external sources/images only letters and numbers... ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
bedic: MODS is it okay to collaborate C4D and PS?! or Illustrator and PS?! in making designs here in PXLEYES or only PS alone... ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
Keiley22: well i just started downloading that cinema 4d to give a try woohoo can't wait lol ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
artist3001: WHATS ALLOWED: ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
artist3001: - Brushes from within photoshop(not sure about the use of Illustrator, mods have to clear that out) ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
artist3001: - No external sources whatsover. ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
artist3001: - You may be allowed to do anything you want with your text. Can't use Ascii Art Generator(Its cheating). You must be creative. Internal brushes are allowed(sbs must be included). ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
artist3001: - Are you allowed to copy an artwork off of the internet? NO, that counts as an external source. ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
artist3001: - USE YOUR IMAGINATION ! ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
bddesign: no, we cant use ascii art generator because its not 3D text. and if we do use it, it will probably get a low score, cause that stuff sucks anyway! ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
bddesign: oh wait, my bad... i thought this was a 3d text contest, still that Ascii Art Generator is horrible lol ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
Keiley22: seriously bddesign, if someone used that art generator, it would probably be the peice on this contest that wins, no offence, but i don't think everyone really honestly looks at the time put into a peice of art when the vote. And for people like me that haven't done something like this before, well we wouldn't know the difference, we just have to take your word that you made it ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
kayaklovergirl: nice idea ( 5 years and 1797 days ago )
nasirkhan: keiley22, MODs here not dump. They are quiet smart to catch cheater. Here is a link of a picture, creator with such ascii generator http://www.codeproject.com/KB/web-image/ASCIIArt/ASCIIArt2.gif and another is http://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/F5P/M9I5/F4ULN87C/F5PM9I5F4ULN87C.MEDIUM.jpg ( 5 years and 1797 days ago )
JamesD: illustrator is allowed... as the contest brief says "in your favourite graphics program"..... ?? ( 5 years and 1797 days ago )
Keiley22: never said they were dumv nasirkan but thanks for putting those words out there. If you read properly, you will notice i said people like me wouldn't know how to tell the difference, therefore we aren't going to red flag it and chances are we will give a great vote score... ( 5 years and 1797 days ago )
cabldawg71: dang a generator bah!! ( 5 years and 1796 days ago )
dmspaulding07: boy you all blow ascii out of proportion. I didnt say anything about an ascii generator. Its not hard to make a real ascii picture. There are some sumbitted already that I can get a similiar affect by changing the levels within each layer. But since most are thinking of the lazy lame generators I will stay out of this contest. ( 5 years and 1795 days ago )
woodztockr: Those who cannot do... talk about it.. if it's so easy... then do it! ( 5 years and 1795 days ago )
Keiley22: lol.... see i said i wouldn't know the difference if i saw one the dms.... ( 5 years and 1795 days ago )

Adam,Eve & The Forbidden Fruit
Favs: 3SBS: 10Hi-resRank: 5/45Score: 60.3% (15)24620 views

This was completely done in photoshop CS4. Options used: text tool, Free transform, Move tool & paint bucket for the background. My work depicts the scene - Eve's approach to Adam to taste the forbidden fruit after tasting it herself. I have made a bite mark on the fruit to visually present that it was already tasted by Eve.
