Flash Manip Challenge 03 - Twisted

Sun Apr 3, 2016, 1:53 PM

You've heard of flash mobs, right? Large groups of people that meet in public places and perform in some way for a short amount of time, then disperse and act as if nothing happened, leaving everyone else surprised and confused? I figured I'd try to incorporate something like that into a short challenge. :D

You will be given a theme. The idea is to quickly piece together a manip based on that theme. Because the time limit to complete it will be short, technical skill will not be heavily judged

There will be more of these challenges, but they will not be on a set schedule. Like a flash mob, they're meant to surprise you and keep you on your toes. :meow:

Guidelines for Challenge 3
Theme: Twisted: take a common idea, story, myth, etc. and give it a major twist
Time limit: 7 days (due by 11:59pm EST April 10th)
You will be judged on creativity/originality & how well you fit the theme
The work must be brand new for this challenge

:star: All stock must be legitimate
Upload your entry to your gallery and send the link/thumb via note

Because this is not a full-blown contest but instead somewhat frequent challenges, the prizes will be fairly small.
There will be two winners.
If anyone wishes to donate anything extra, it will be greatly appreciated. :heart:

First place
300 points
feature on profile
art request (photomanipulation)

Second place
150 points
feature on profile

If you can't take part in this one, don't worry! :hug: There will be many more. Hopefully these will help stir up inspiration and creative ideas. :heart:

Also, feel free to suggest future challenge themes! (they just won't go in the order they are received ;))

Have fun! :la:

Hello! What does it mean: Twisted? A visual twisted effect or an unexpected plot twist?;)

I apologize for the late reply, but definitely more of an unexpected plot twist. :D

I like it! I'll squeeze it in the newsletter quickly.. :D

PS: it says March 10, I assume it should be April 10?

Haha, yes. I knew we were in April, but I guess I'm subconsciously still in March. Thanks for catching that.
