Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

singlespeed & fixed gear photoshop tennis

Since nearly everyone here is a designer of one kind or another, let's play a friendly little game of photoshop tennis. What's photoshop tennis, you ask? It's a wonderful, geeky game for idle designers to waste their time and test their creativity. One person (let's call this person "me") will begin a match by offering an image. Let's go with this one:



Not only is this another compromising photo of msngr, it's also a somewhat compromising photo of myself, so msngr doesn't feel like he's being singled out. (or meticulously outlined and used in a future design, maybe? Just a suggestion...)

The next player in Photoshop Tennis can do anything he or she wants with the image. Change the composition - paste other photos into it - filter the crap out of it - draw all over it. There are NO RULES except "make it awesome". Once you're satisfied with what you've created, you repost it to the list, and the next player will have a go at it. To make this work, whoever wants to take a stab at the image will have to reply "ME NEXT". If he/she is the first person to post "ME NEXT", it's their turn. Like I said, there are NO RULES. You can go anywhere with this. Be creative. Here are some examples of other matches I've played with friends of mine: www.studionumbernine.net/tennis ...It gets a bit nutty sometimes.

I'll be sans computer until Tuesday, but to those of you with idle Chrismas time, PLAY!!!!

aaaalriiiighhhht!!! MrRed's our first player! Take your time, red. No time limit is one of the rules. Of course, if it takes someone ridiculously long, I might waive that rule.

I think that might end up getting confusing, what with the chronology of the posts being all messed with. Let's keep it the way it is. Oh, btw spud, if you still want next volley, you have to post "me next" AFTER the edited image has been posted. Does that make sense? Whoever posts "me next" soonest after the image has been posted gets next volley.

BTW, nice work, MrRed!

I'm not quite sure if that fits into the rules...but I was lost on ideas on how to further the stinky armpit/incredible hulk motif, and this just seemed right.
