I would welcome a new Wall Paper Contest just so I could see what the Creative Minds around here comes up with but as for me you can count me out because my work isn't good enough to compete with all of you.

If you look back @ Wallpaper Contests and the like you will see that 'we' support
any and all efforts to 'promote'.
Worry not.
Post a sample .. Some may take it as a challenge, others as inspiration.
Most play along just for the fun.

[PM] MarshallR, in case he hasn't seen this. [doubtful'very busy]..hehe.c.

I will dig around for some prizes first to see what we have :) We might have a Maximus IV GENE-Z still around the office iirc. Better yet I'll ask about game-codes!

I will officially congratulate the Winner here and now because I know for a fact it won't be me because I'm not going to be in it, but I'm thinking it will be Xeromist or Area66....OOOOPPPPPSSSSS! my bad! underworld you got me off track thinking it was Technical some how....but for Art I couldn't begin to say because there are a LOT of ARTIST here on the Forums that are Worlds Ahead of me in skill.

chrsplmr
03-12-2013, 02:45 AM
hahahha .. dc .. ya kill me. Art has Nothing to do with [little 's'] skill.imho only.
Skill is taught, learned sometimes to mastered disipline.
Talent can not be beat into a human even by himself/her.again imho.
Nor can it be denied but only by ones self.
There is No defeat without first a surrender.
My brother, I like to think I know you well. You are a man of many depths,
some of them very dark .. hahahha
Whip that Art out and Sling that ROG.
Like the swagger in a locker room. Swing'n Proud. hahaha.

I double ROG dare ya .. it's not about winn'n .. what's it
always been about ??? yelp ... hahhaha .. ROG'n.
Tech is our neccessity for the 'fun'.
ummm .. the 'fun' is the hole. the 'tech' is the drill ??? .

If you read this far, you too can do wallpaper. hahahha .c.

Not to parade in the rain.

Wallpapers are always fun and contests always a bonus .. if ya like beating a 'dead ghost'.
Even if there is a tragic shortage of wallpapers in the world.

ROG'd out case art/design 'Contest' could be both challenging or rewarding.
Maybe great modders and sponsors are always looking for fresh ideas. Who knows.
It could spark a beatiful 'thang'.. and maybe 'win' a few game codes.


chrsplmr....STOP LAUGHING! I hate it when I can hear that all the way over here!

Not until I assume room temperature my friend.c.

Blizzard is sending us some physical special edition boxes of the new StarCraft (no codes, real stuff!), so when I get those we'll be planning and starting the new contest. I don't know how many or what they are exactly yet, so, need to wait for the postie to arrive.

We've just received and earmarked two HoTS collectors edition boxes for this contest. Would anyone like to suggest changes to the rules before the contest launches? We will add a range of the latest product images in galleries on site before Friday for you to use.

Submitted wallpapers must be at least 2560x1600 in resolution, while 5760x1080 are also accepted for triple-monitor users.
Entries must contain your name and the designs title. (Be inventive! We've got dozens of "ROG" titled ones ;))
There is no limit to the number of entries one person can submit.
Wallpapers must directly reference the ROG brand, an ROG product, or ROG history.
They must remain tasteful (yes we know you guys!): no nips or adult bits. We’ll be liberal, but ROG staff reserve the right to remove entries if they are not family friendly.
The competition ends on xxxxx 23:59pm (GMT) (measured by our ’slightly overclocked’ forum time)
The competition entries will be rounded up on 1st Feb and voted on by ROG forum users (top 2 winners) and ROG staff (1 winner) between xxxxx
ROG will contact the winners by forum private message/registered email address – so please make sure these are monitored.
ROG reserves the right to upload any of the entries (along with due credit to the designer) to the ROG site downloads page when the competition is complete.

Resolution: 1920x1080 minimum Resolution
Theme for the wallpapers

If you set a minimum people will just default to it :P Is it too much to ask for bigger do you think?

It's a Challenge. But isn't that the point ?

DaemonCantor
03-21-2013, 07:42 PM
I think your Rules list is perfect MarshallR and no I wouldn't allow 1920x1080 because I want to see just how many people have the Kahunas to work with Dual or Triple Monitor Resolutions....Yes that's a Challenge since none of you like my work and there are so few people out there that can or are even willing to work with bigger than a Bottle of Beer Pictures. I swear most people don't even know that a Monitor can show bigger than 1280x720 unless it's listed in their GAME!

Don't worry all I'm not in the Competition and even if I was to enter I would loose anyway.

chrsplmr
03-21-2013, 08:26 PM
Dc .. hahahha .. I double ROG dare Ya !!!
Actually .. I retract that .. your runn'n crip'l'd ... I mean other than the wheel chair (never disrespect) I know ..
the 1100T let you down, although proudly .. and sadly .. choke .. cough .. Dell.
Much to your expertise, I might add.
I have seen much of your work .. your tri-screens are noth'n to sneeze @.

Spare AM3 or AM3+ of no use ??? .. drop a brother a PM.c.

We could do two categories: 5760x1080 and 2560x1600? Each has a chance of winning an SC II Special Edition

it's hard enough trying to make a 1920x1080 image on a 1600x900 screen!! i'll have a crap tonne of trouble trying to work with those sizes lmao :p :cool:

DaemonCantor
03-22-2013, 01:46 PM
What my friend! you don't have the Kahunas or just .... well I'll leave it at that because truth be told on the larger sizes it's not about the Talented Hand but Skill in Layout and Composition and Insanity. So leave that Girlfriend you found in Kentucky Alone for ten Minutes( she won't mind) and get to work!

As an incentive I leave this.....

No it's not in the Competition so don't vote for it but it's here as an example of a 5760x1080 and it's name is Nano ROG plus it's an old one from when I was learning to use Photoshop CS5 vers. Photoshop 4 for the Macintosh.

ROFL!....I can walk to her House faster than you could SWIM there! but still chrsplmr did it and he's running about the same REZ as you are ... also that's why in Photoshop or any of the others you can shrink or Blow up the image as needed....

Myk .. what program are you using ?? there is a tab on top to work it @ say 50%
(i used 33% Microsoft ImageComposer 1.5 from FrontPage 2000 standalone)
then get something like irfanview32 (what i use) to look it over full size.
My monitor is 1280 x 1024.c.

Here's a .zip containing 2 .psd's of two different ROG Logos plus a cleaned up 3 Part ROG Logo and an ASUS logo. They are made by me over the coarse of 2 years, use them as you see fit because I put them into Public Domain but please follow basic Courtesy and common Decency with them.

Here's the link to them: http://www.mediafire.com/?lmc453833b36cph

Nice one Dc.

*.psd's eh ??
Drat. Nice try though. hahhahaa
I'm not 'downgrading', hehe, to PhotoShop ever.
I'll stick with what little I know ..
Microsoft Image Composer 1.5, a FrontPage2000 standalone.
(It's part of the 'game' of it. ie .. my Metro will drive circles around ur Vette. i'm driv'n ... hahha)

Sorry to ask .. but can these be posted a .png's or .jpg's or something ??? thnx.c.

I'm looking into the possibility of ROG T-Shirts before kick-off. Since we're sending out physical boxes as prizes we might as well chuck in some Ts as well. Sorry for the delay peeps.

EDIT: We've got T-shirts! :D (They might be a little delay though as they are ready ~6 weeks from now)

Prepping competition launch for April 1st.

Thanks to DarmonCantor for pointing me to this thread. I really think I may take a stab at this whole thing. I won't have a lot of time on my hands after the 5th of April but I still have some ideas that I should be able to throw together. I saw mention of t-shirts, are these for sale outside of this competition and if so where? I would love to snag a couple.

najirion
03-29-2013, 07:32 AM
I have some ideas too.. might as well put my novice photoshop skills into practice :)

chrsplmr
03-29-2013, 01:54 PM
Thach--T's are seldom for sale. You may find some on the internet. Mostly not official.
These are usually reserved for promotions ect.
M has mentioned that these arent the usual stamp'm tshirts .. embroidered polo's .. yum ..
XXXL or XXXXL ???
When I got the one I have it was/is a small.
I think it was worn by an Asus model during the Lamborgini Promotion in NYC. hahhaha
[[ well, thats the way i tell it when i point it out hanging in my office ... hahahahhaha ]]]

najirion .. Worry not of being a novice at the software. The Art is in the idea, not
the execution. imho. I think you will be amazed with yourself.

We saw a post from MarshallR .. about returning PM's after the 10th due to scheduling and travel
limits on his time. Also he got started on catalog reading his last post in that thread ..
So I would say we shall see it anytime .. the 10th is .. tomorrow .. ect...

There will be lots of time to vote and each time a member does it will bring it back to the
top of 'new posts' ..

Now .. There is a matter of the Video Contest [ http://rog.asus.com/event/win_with_rog/ ] .. it just started .. haven't seen any posts
in it yet .. looking forward to that as well. [ great page.btw.design skills cudos. ].c.
