Welcome to the Photoshop Novelty Debate!


Concept:

I will be providing my opponent with an image and a theme. It will be his burden to manipulate the image using photoshop (or similar photo manipulation software) within the context of the theme. After he has finished rendering the image, he will post it as a rebuttal. In his rebuttal, he will also post an image and a theme for me. This cycle will continue until the 5th and final round.


Rules:
  1. The image must be a .jpg, .png or .bmp file extension. (No gifs, PDFs or other odd image types).
  2. The image resolution must be at least 500 x 300. (Pre and Post rendered).
  3. The images may not portray hateful ideology, pornography or real human suffering. (This includes all images from "faces of death", "Anti-gay", "Anti-Religion" and "Anti-cultural/racial" sources).
  4. Absolutely no cross-talk. The opponents may not speak in the comment section until after the debate has passed the voting period. Absolutely NO vote pandering.
  5. No direct correspondence. The opponents may not correspond in the rounds, outside of furnishing a theme or concept.

Voting:

  • Spelling / Grammar - This point shall be awarded to the artist who blends the photoshop layers most proficiently. No clipping, mismatched color tones / hues. The image flows naturally and does not appear edited or manipulated. (RFD Required)
  • Conduct - Is the artist being flagrantly offensive or foul? Does the image convey humor and sarcasm without crossing the line? (RFD Required)
  • Arguments - This is the "Wow" factor. Raw artistic talent score. (RFD Required)
  • Sources - Which artist best presented the assigned themes? (RFD Required)

Round 1 Challenge:

Reasons for voting decision: Pro showed more skill in his photoshopping than Con. Thus getting better conduct. Both did equally well on the themes. Great debate, I love the pictures.
