Contest goal:

In this contest, you are required to use all of the 6 source images from the contests that started at the same date as this contest... Let your imagination combine them into one piece!
Every source picture has to be visible in your SBS guide and you can use no other external source image. Important is that you can combine ALL SIX pieces into 1 big piece of art, skipping a source makes your entry invalid. Good luck!

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

jawshoewhah: Um, so let me get this strait, we are supposed to take all the source images from the source image contests and combine them? Interesting idea. ( 5 years and 1468 days ago )
ponti55: It's a fantastic idea, i think this contest should appear a little more often.. still it might be a bit tricky to use them all, like the Dial Pad.. ( 5 years and 1468 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Agree with you on that one Ponti, the paper boats seems like it would be tough too ( 5 years and 1468 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I think CBR'ing the sources is the only way to go (CBR=chopping beyond recognition) ( 5 years and 1468 days ago )
braska: Very challenging... yeah, I'd like to see someone pull it off with out CBR'ing. ( 5 years and 1468 days ago )
jawshoewhah: ya me too ( 5 years and 1468 days ago )
CMYK46: So we're just supposed to ignore the levels of the contests now that we've finally gotten back to multi-level contests? Kinda defeats the whole purpose, I'd say. ( 5 years and 1468 days ago )
langstrum: Waw, finally one of my suggestions is used. My idea is some people always use only the given source for their entries, even though this requires more skills but sometime it's not interesting with the others. It's not really fair IMO, and I think this is the way to go. Everybody has to find the connections of the given sources, this is good to train our imagination. Hope that I can see many nice works here. ( 5 years and 1467 days ago )
langstrum: Surrealism is the easiest theme for this challenge ( 5 years and 1467 days ago )
hereisanoop: i like this ( 5 years and 1467 days ago )
nasirkhan: Intersting and challeging. ( 5 years and 1467 days ago )
DML: This is a good idea, I think this contest will be interesting. ( 5 years and 1467 days ago )
Drivenslush: omg.. this is going to be fun to see what people come up with ( 5 years and 1467 days ago )
ponti55: I don;t think so CMYK, espcially for people who stupidly make an entry for a level 10- contest despite beign a level 22 and then realize after hours of work that IT COULD NOT BE UPLOADED.... ahem... but i've not done that.... hmm ( 5 years and 1467 days ago )
CMYK46: ROFL Ponti...yeah, let's reward stupidity! ( 5 years and 1467 days ago )
CMYK46: PS: This is the second contest I'll be skipping this week, and also not voting on. ( 5 years and 1467 days ago )
ponti55: I can;t see myself actually uploading to this contest anyway.. just sounds good on paper. ( 5 years and 1467 days ago )
inanis: great contest theme, should be one every week. ( 5 years and 1464 days ago )
gamemastertips: Inanis, that would be a bit much, as some pics can be quite impossible sometimes lol...but yes, it should be often. This is quite a neat idea that would force alot of creative thinking. ( 5 years and 1463 days ago )
inanis: could be introduced as a new kind of contest, and not as a replacement for a theme contest. but first let's see how people manage this time... ( 5 years and 1462 days ago )

Howdie stranger!

Used all 6 sources. It was tough and the hardest was finding a spot for the shadows. I actually thought they looked like they were dancing so I tried to make a dance/wine and dine type theme. Hope it worked :)

(Sbs is a bit jacked up, I had previously done the bottle and wine glass and paper boat, and kept it in the images so I can see where I was at and my perspective with the table. I ended up changing it around a bit because there was a problem with part of the glass missing sorry). (5 years and 1467 days ago)
