NDC 2012: Round 3 Challenge
 
Your Round 3 Challenge is to create a kit using another photo by Captain Kimo as your inspiration. I have already picked a palette & photo for you. You must use this palette.

However, this palette is very monochromatic. It needs a little splash of color. Each of you may pick one additional color (and it's lighter & darker variations) to add to this palette.


Round 3 is traditionally the no CU round. This year we are mixing it up a little. This year is not just about the moon, but also about color! One huge challenge every designer faces is recoloring CU. For this round you may use only the CU Grab Bag (your prize from round 2), your own design skills, and any standard brushes that come with your software. You may not use plugins. You must include the tools listed in your description.

Is it possible to get a bit more context? Where is the picture taken??

Silly question time...."Moonlight" is just the title of the palette right? We can name our kits what we want?

I would assume yes, it's not specifically listed as a requirement to name the kit Moonlight ;)

I do not envy you guys this round.... :O

We can make our own brushes right?

kimberkatt 09-15-2012 09:09 AM

Re: NDC 2012: Round 3 Challenge
 
yes, you can make anything as long as it's from scratch, 100% made by you or using the CU grabbag you were given - absolutely NO other CU resources can be used.

Are you sure? The instructions said this: "For this round you may use only the CU Grab Bag (your prize from round 2), your own design skills, and any standard brushes that come with your software. You may not use plugins."

I read that to be you can ONLY use the brushes that your program came with and the CU grab bag and that's it. I don't see where it says you can make brushes. :confused:

Love the colors!
Mean I can go, take photos and extract from them, scan my skirt and use as texture as long as all is my own work, right?
Oookay, that I call a challenge. Hubby said "now you can show what you can" - HUH I wish I had so much selfconfidence *roflmao*

Hi Jill. My understanding is that you can use standard brushes that came with your program, but you can't use CU brushes or brushes that someone else has created. I'm sure using your own photos/drawing to create your own original brushes would be classed as designing from scratch and that would be ok. ;)

are you sure??????

createdbyjill 09-15-2012 10:04 AM

Re: NDC 2012: Round 3 Challenge
 
What about shapes and textures that come with the program? those ok to use? can you tell the pressure is on and we want to do everything right from the get go?

I'm pretty sure that extracting elements/textures from your own photos would be allowed. ;)

createdbyjill 09-15-2012 10:06 AM

Re: NDC 2012: Round 3 Challenge
 
but not using any that come with the program right? (aren't I a pain?)

manu79 09-15-2012 10:08 AM

Re: NDC 2012: Round 3 Challenge
 
Hm, that would mean, no shapes, no textures etc that come with your program either! Toiny, tell us we can use that and own photos pleaseeeeee - otherwise I will have to work the nights throug to make it in time *rofl*
