Congratulations to everyone who has been participating in the Scared Silly contest! It has been a genuine pleasure watching all of you over the last several weeks. There is some truly amazing artwork being shown.
With the contest deadline being this Friday (just four days away), it's time for us to provide instructions for delivery of your finished artwork. All entries should be in JPG format.
If your final image is under 200 KB in size, you can upload it directly to ZBrushCentral.
If your final image is over 200 KB in size, you should upload a smaller version to ZBC. You will also need to provide the larger version to us so that we can upload it to our servers and provide a link in your post. The image should be named "SSFinal_YourName.jpg". (For example, SSFinal_MatthewYetter.jpg)
You are also welcome to provide your own thumbnail for the image. This thumbnail is the first thing people will see on the voting page. If you wish to create your own thumbnail, it should be named "SSThumb_YourName.jpg". (For example, SSThumb_MatthewYetter.jpg) The thumbnail must be exactly 80x56 pixels in size. If you do not supply a thumbnail, we will create one for you.
To submit your final (over 200 KB) image and/or thumbnail image, create a single zip file with the image(s). This file should be named "YourName.zip". (For example, MatthewYetter.zip) You will then need to deliver the zip file to us. This file must be less than 2 MB in size. It should be sent as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. The email's subject should be "Scared Silly Entry by Your Name". (For example, Scared Silly Entry by Matthew Yetter) When we receive the email, we will reply with a confirmation to let you know that it has been received.
Please keep in mind that the contest deadline is 11:59 pm (Pacific Time) on Friday, November 2, 2007. At that time, the contest forum will be closed to prevent any post-deadline modification of the entries. No emailed entries will be accepted after that time, either.
Judging will begin on Monday, November 5. Good luck to you all!
