    posted a message on June Photoshop Contest - Blockbuster Summer of Magic
    Wasn't this already done once before? I recall an American Pie = Color Pie entry, but none the less, this is definately fun. I've got an awesome idea. XD

    It doesn't have to be movies coming out this year right? Just any movie poster?


    There was something remotely similar but not exactly. And yes, you can use any movie you want. An upcoming release, a new release, or something past. Just as long as it's not something you make up that isn't an actual movie.

    Also...

    Everyone i apologize for the late posting of the artwork contests and photoshop contests. Monday, after I returned from a Sunday evening of Magic at my local shop, I've been sick. A sore throat, congestion, and a continual ache, has throttled me since Monday. Normally I have them up by the first or no later than the second. I'll try to stay on top of this better from now on.

    Welcome to the June Photoshop Contest! The theme this month is...
    Blockbuster Summer of Magic
    Every summer we witness some of the most dazzling movies that Hollywood and the film industry can dish to us! Your goal this month is to take any movie poster and "spoof" it into a Magic: The Gathering poster. Instead of Ghostbusters, you might do spiritbusters stopping a random spirit in Magic. There are many ways to take this, but I'm looking for HUMOR the most, so keep that in mind! Good luck!

    Welcome to the June Artwork Contest. The theme this month is:
    Summer Time!
    June is here and that means summer time! We all need a break every now and again and the superstars of Magic are no exception. Your task this month is to choose any creature or planeswalker and show them enjoying the summer. Maybe Squee is off to go hiking in the Adirondacks? Maybe everyone is getting together for a huge cookout? Will Urza spend the summer in Paris? Does Juzam Djinn really go surfing? Who knows! It's your job to depict one, two, or more creatures and/or planeswalkers enjoying their summer! Good luck!

    posted a message on Magic: 15th Anniversary Deck Box & Sleeves - Black Lotus!
    When will other companies realize that the ION deck boxes are THE industry standard for deck boxes. The sleeves aren't all that exciting. Why not make the sleeves solid black with a glowing small lotus in the center, with the Magic logo above it and below it the 15th Anniversary logo?

    IMHO, that would look much better.

    And the price? No thank you. I don't care if if I'm purchasing a "chance" at a piece of power. At that price, a plastic deck box with poorly artistically designed sleeves isn't worth it.

    You need it as a vector PBG? Or just really really big? What's it going to be used for?


    No it doesn't have to be vector at all. It's going to be used to create a window cling decal for a car. No bigger than a regular piece of printer paper really, is what it will be used as.:)

    I have a picture of a logo from a church, that I would like to have turned into a giant decal. Unfortunately, I'm not very skilled at making logos and such.

    This is the picture...


    The cross with the design behind it, is what I'm looking for.

    If there is anyone available who could create an image of that for me, I and others, would be GREATLY appreciative.

    I try to keep an eye out for original works or alters that in some way or fashion bring something new to the table.

    If I don't comment on a particular alter, it isn't that I don't enjoy it or respect it. It's more due to the fact that I see several alters all the time and I have either seen something like that or similar to that. Still, no matter how many times the art on a spell is altered/extended, there comes a time when an alteration is so well done, that it almost appears as though the card was PRINTED that way.

    THOSE alters are some of the ones I enjoy most.

    In my opinion, I think there are a few factors that make or break an alter.

    Tight Borders
    - Often times, I see alters where the paint is flowing over the borders in parts. A good alter will have borders that are 99% flawless. Difficult to achieve? Definitely. But that's what separates average and good alters from magnificent alters.

    Color Matching
    - I can only begin to wonder the difficulty of mixing and producing colors that match the original work. Sometimes a particular alter will be so off on colors that you can see the frame of the art and where the alterer overlapped to extend the art. The best alters, again in my opinion, are those that have the colors matched so well that it appears as though the card was printed that way.

    Originality
    - Everyone wants to take a crack at certain cards. The more popular cards are usually chosen to be altered first, because they are most desired and see the most play. However, if everyone is altering card X and everyone is altering card X in about the same fashion, then the allure and distinct uniqueness of that card is taken away. Especially if someone else has done that particular card better. As I've stated before in this thread and I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but when you find ways to "raise the bar" on originality "push the envelope" of things, you create alters that people will remember and desire more than others.

    Complexity
    - Somewhat similar to originality. Let's say you wanted to do an alter of Oona. You could just extend the art and work with the different shades of the background behind her. However, you could ALSO work in some of your own ideas. She's the queen of the fae, right? How interesting would it be to include the faeries from other popular cards on her card? Thoughtseize, Pestermite, Scion of Oona, and such are just some examples. At the same time, you don't want get too complex. And that's exactly it.

    You have to find that line where complexity is good and too much and try to get as close to the edge of that line as you can without going over.


    I also think another important step in sharing alters here is to openly state what you're looking for when you post an alter.

    Do you want criticism and critiques? If so, on what parts?

    I think a good idea for everyone who posts an alter here is to include a list with their post of what brand paints they used, how much time the alter took, and maybe what other tools were involved. It sounds like a lot for just a post, but I think it would go a long way in helping the community of those interested in doing altered art. learn what it takes.

    I'm sure the difficult part of this is that each person works in different paints, markers, pens, and such.

    I know this was a "book" of a post without an alter to show in it, but I wanted to chime in here and see if that might help some.:)

    Keep the alters coming everyone!

    Can we "alter" our image to perhaps match a card art style? Like artistically change the image to match...say, a painting medium or acrylics?

    I (and others for this reason) may want to "blend into the art" on a more realistic level -- rather than stand out


    That would be acceptable as long as you don't distort the card too much.

    At first when I read it, my initial impression was "meh". Then I started thinking about it. 15 foil dragons. FIFTEEN! That's not bad at all. Making these a limited print run is nice too. I'll probably get one to keep sealed, one to open, and maybe one to use as trade.

    Definitely good stuff!

    I like this site. Scratch that, I LOVE this site. I don't mind ads to an extent. Just as long as they don't expand over the screen or attempt to place pop-ups that ask you to enter information or the worst - "Congratulations! You've just won a free Apple iPhone!"

    Those in particular bother me. I think a few ads is a small price to pay for the great things this site brings to the magic community worldwide.

    Anywho, thanks for taking time out to inform us of things Hannes. That's very kind of you.

    Draw any sorcery, instant, equipment, or aura enchantment, affecting a single creature. All entries must be new for this contest and you may not choose older works you've completed to enter.

    That's essentially the focal points of the contest. You can't use the artwork for Shock and just draw something in place of the Psychatog. It must be all your own artwork.:)

    posted a message on How Can We Fix The Altered Art Contest?
    How does this sound?

    First off, I'll limit the cards being altered to current T2 blocks. Second, I'll select three options each month and the participants may select which of the three to go with.

    Example:
    Black Rare
    Green Uncommon
    Red Common

    All cards must be pulled from the currently legal T2 format at the time the contest is announced.

    That's one idea.

    Another idea was messaged by someone who wishes to remain anonymous, is to have a proxy contest. This would be the creation of a proxy upon any other card that has the same casting cost as the card offered for the contest.

    Example:
    Demonic Tutor - Any participant may alter any card with a casting cost of :1mana::symb:.

    My last idea would be to create TWO contests that alternated each month.

    Example:
    Month 1 - Altered Art Contest with significantly less restrictions, as mentioned above in the very first example given.

    Month 2 - Digital Altered Art Contest.


    So I've thrown some options out there. PLEASE keep chiming in here folks and let me know what you think. I REALLY appreciate the feedback that I've received thus far and I wish we could get more feedback too.

    I hope to see some more replies soon.

    I appreciate the feedback from you both and I hope we can gain more responses here. I don't think card choice is that big of a deal. It's not like I would ever choose something insane like a beta rare or power card. At the same time, the biggest lure to some alterers is the desire to create something that can do well in auction. Seldom will this be a crap common that the more inexperienced would be more willing to alter.

    If we did just have the contest where we allow any alter to be submitted, then I think that would open the gates to more people willing to just choose a work they already have completed for an auction or friend or themselves.

    If we provide less restrictions on alters but have some minor restrictions, then my belief is that this will still make it more of a contest and not just a "show us your best render monthly contest".

    Maybe we can get more feedback and see what others think too. I could very well be wrong.

    EDIT: Another idea might be to try and give the digital altered art contest a try and see if it fairs better than the non-digital variant did.

    posted a message on How Can We Fix The Altered Art Contest?
    Hello everyone. As most of you can tell, this month we don't have a contest listed for the Bi-Monthly Altered Art Contest. This isn't to say that I don't want the contest to exist. On the contrary, I would REALLY like to keep it going, but it seems as though we don't seem to have much interest in the contest.

    This is something that I think I have reasoned why.

    Most of the people who do alters on cards, do so for two reasons. One, they like to alter cards for their decks and collections or their friends decks and collections. Two, they like to alter cards to post on auction sites or use as trade to gain cards they want.

    Both reasons are completely understandable. However, the contest dips into time that one who alters could be working on something for friends, personal use, or an auction. In addition, the contest can be restricting when there's a contest idea or theme at hand.

    So my suggestion is this.

    The contest will become MONTHLY and the restrictions on output will be much smaller. Example?

    An Ice Age block sorcery altered how you would like. All of the entries would be judged upon who makes the best alter.

    That's just an example. It's less restricting and could even encourage someone who uses their alters for auction sites and such to work on piece they could submit to the contest and still use in an auction.

    My chief concern with this is that I'll encounter people using previously completed alters in the current contest. This would NOT be allowed and I would have to rely heavily on the honesty of the contestants to not do that. This is something I think I could easily invest lots of faith in.

    So that's my suggestion, but as I'm the moderator here with Annorax, I am completely open to any ideas you all may have and I would REALLY like to get some input back on this.

    Do you like my idea?

    If no, why?

    Should it stay bi-monthly?

    Chime in and let me know my friends. I want to make the Artwork forums as enjoyable as possible and getting quality feedback from you nice ladies and gentlemen really goes a long way in being able to do that.

    Thanks again!:)

    Are we limited to just one non-creature effecting a creature? Or can we have a plethora of them interacting together?


    The spell must be affecting a single creature, although certain exceptions will be made for creatures that are a group, such a Killer Bees and Army Ants. Good question!

    So as it stands, I'm looking to acquire some new hardware and I want to get some feedback from the nice people here at MTGSalvation's Water Cooler Talk section.

    I want a new mp3 playing device. I've owned iPods and enjoyed them all. However, I think I may want to consider acquiring something that can do a little more than just play an mp3. I don't want a pocket or palm PC. A friend suggested I give Sony's PSP a chance. He also stated that there are many things you can do outside the given lines of "normal use" with a PSP. I'm not too familiar with Nintendo's DS Lite and I'm not even sure it can play mp3's.

    I'm not a HUGE gamer. In fact, I seldom play games all that much. When it comes to games, I like the old school NES 8-bit platform and more 2D style games. Especially the Sega Geneisis and SNES era. I do LOVE music but not so much that I need more than 25 or 30 gigs of space.

    So what say you fellow forum members? Any suggestions for me? Am I wanting too much in one device?

Whether it be Aliens, Predator, Luke Skywalker, or E.T., your goal for this month is to alter a card in such a fashion that you work in a small (or large) tribute to your favorite sci-fi flick or character. The original card must be easily recognizable and you must alter a real card without any digital means. Entries will be do by April 30th at 12:00 midnight EST. Good luck and I look forward to more entries this go around ladies and gentlemen.

    Here are the entries:

    posted a message on Poll April Artwork Contest

    banner by FirePenguinMaster

    Welcome to the March Artwork Contest voting thread. The theme last month was:
    I Can Has Big Eyes Plz K THX!
    It was bound to happen sooner or later. For the April Artwork Contest, I would like for you to take ANY Magic card and give it that manga/anime style. We've all seen renders and proxies of cards done in anime style. There's even an entire thread in the forums dedicated to it, so you may want to check that out if you're unfamiliar with anime/manga style artwork. Maybe you want to recreate Shock zapping an anime style Psychatog. What about changing the artwork from a certain land into something more fitting and appropriate for this month's contest? The choice is yours. Good luck to everyone!

    Here Are The Entries

    posted a message on I don't know where this would go, but here it is. My new website...
    So are you posting this to advertise or to gain feedback on the site? I think this is more something that should be in the non-Magic artwork section. Although it is somewhat Magic related. If you ever have any questions about where something should be posted, don't hesitate to contact a moderator. That's what we're here for.

    Recently I've noticed a rash of people posting questions in the Artwork forums which should be placed in the Official Request and Help Thread. This is just a reminder to make sure and read HERE before posting.

    Thank you everyone.:)

    posted a message on March Bi-Monthly Altered Art Contest
    I think this may be the last time for this contest. I have ONE hope left, seeing as how we have a total of two entries right now.

    If the next month's contest doesn't show more input, then I think we may have to let this third contest idea go.

    posted a message on Patrician's Scorn
    My opponent has Saffi Eriksdotter enchanted with a Sheild of The Oversoul. I play Wrath of God and while Wrath of God is on the stack, I also play Patrician's Scorn for free.

    My questions are this.

    1. Is this a legal play? The Wrath is being played and is on the stack, thus I would be under the impression that playing the Scorn for free would be a legal play.

    2. How would the stack resolve in regards to Saffi. Would the Shield become destroyed by the Scorn prior to Wrath resolving and thus making Saffi a victim of Wrath?

    Thanks in advance.

    Unfortunately I do not have the ability to edit a poll. However, my moderator co-captain and overall forum friendly help - Annorax, does. So he may be able to come in soon and change things up.

    I doubt these are what you need, but I'll post them anyway, as they "may" help.



    I believe one of the PSD's would definitely have a suitable or usable version.

    posted a message on Things you do when you're bored.
    These days I've been about making money online. I hit up social networking sites that pay you for using them, take surveys for money, sign up for programs that pay you to sign up, play MWS, draw, "acquire" music, write a blog, or watch a movie.

    Quote from rabblerouser
    I was looking for an artist besides Guay who does playmats and I find those... I take it they're not yours? Grin


    No, that's definitely not my work. It does indeed seem a bit rushed and with the cost of the mat included, I wonder how they can afford to do that, unless they have preset images and they scan them on somehow.

    Quote from Atomsk
    Do you know what playmats those are or where I could get them.


    You can find blank mats on most auction sites.

    The isamaru reminds me of PBG's, but they were rushed (no offense.)


    It looks like my Isamaru head combined with the Shiv volcano in the background from the Teferi playmat I did.

    posted a message on [Official] Altered Art Thread (56k Beware)
    I think the biggest critique that I can offer to anyone who is asking is this.

    Tighten up your borders. Look at the works of the best alterers in this thread and you'll notice one consistent thing about all of their works. They always keep their lines clean. The key is to make the cards look and feel as though they were designed in the way that you've altered them. If a card was designed in this way you definitely wouldn't see random markings in the text box area or title bars.

    I mention this, because it's the one glaring thing that arises whenever I see an altered piece. Well, that and color blending.

    With that said, keep the art coming. i love seeing new alters and I love to see who's willing to take the next step up and raise the bar for everyone!:)

    I also feel the art should be extended art. It should be the majority of the card in my opinion.

    posted a message on New Shadowmoor Basic Land Playmats
    Quote from Yurei
    *sighs* we've already discussed these mats in 3 seperate topis, why do people keep making new topics about these when they're old news?

    These are not made by ultrapro. GTS produces them through someone, I don't know who but the mat I have from them from another set has no mention of ultrapro on it. These were only made available as retailer incentives by a distributor when they ordered or preordered a certain amount of product. Thus, only some stores will have them and choose to go through the effort to get them and sell them then to players through their psychical or online stores.

    For like, the third time i'll post this:


    It's going to be okay:rolleyes:. It's just a news post and not the end of the world. If it has been posted elsewhere prior to this, then obviously it didn't gain much attention where it was at. In addition, when I posted this thread, I clearly stated that I "believe" they were made by Ultra-Pro and in no way, shape, or form, clearly say that they were indeed a 100% "for sure" Ultra-Pro product.

    The first post on them was titled Prerelease Playmats on March 27th. Within that thread there was a link posted to a site that offered the mats. Nowhere was there an image attachment or spoilered images for people to view outside of the links of THESE mats. On top of that, it was IN the Rumor Mill section and in the middle of a thread about the Shadowmoor prerelease playmats. Obviously they're not rumored.

    I appreciate you adding extra information to the thread about the nature and origin of this product, as I'm sure the many individuals who were previously unaware of this product, appreciate it too.

    i like the island and forest. where can u get them from?


    I'm usre they'll be available soon. I know of one location that has them here. I would assume Star City and other such places will have them soon enough. As for the size of them, I'm not sure. They claim to be "extra large" play mats, so I would assume at least as large as the past play mats, based on that alone.

    If I come across a definite size, I'll post back here and update this post if there are no new posts.

    I think the card is very well designed. I tried to think of other ways in which they could achieve the same goal without breaking the card and it proved rather difficult. Kudos to whoever designed that one. Extra turns can always be a tricky thing to work with.

    These should become available anytime. I believe they're made by Ultra-Pro.
