Default Assignment #5 results

As promised, I've got the results for assignment 5 now that I'm home! lol They are as follows:

Scores:
Deus Toutatis: 9+9+9=27 (up for immunity)
Render Me Useless: 9+8+8=25 (up for immunity)
Nymphalis Antiopa: 8+8+8=24
Ao Kanashimi: 7+9+7=23
Scarlet Renoux: 6+7+7=20

Remember, scoring was different this week! This time, each contestant had a total of 10 points possible, so the numbers you see are the points they got out of 10. And of course they were all added together for the final score. If this method works better, us judges will use it instead from now on.

Immunity:
Deus Toutatis: We felt you did a very good job this week. You showed us purple in a new way, and we applaud you for taking the "non-safe" approach, which would have been royalty. Your post clearly shows mystery as does your location, and everything just fits together so well. Great job once again!
Render Me Useless: Another great shot! We're glad you chose the armor you did, as it goes well with your environment and keeps us drowning in green. Very creative how you pushed the branch back and displayed nature.

This was a tough one, as you both did incredible this week. But of course, only one can win each week. Also, you have both won once before, so that means your bounty on the poster has gone up! That's just in fun of course, but...yeah. lol Anyway...

Immunity

Congratulations! You may choose an in-game prize of 1 free Zaishen key or the option to submit THREE photos for the next assignment instead of one (the judges will determine which one was your best and use that as your submission). Feel free to PM me on here or in-game with your answer!

No elimination this week, as Ember has resigned! Sorry to see you go Ember, hope you get to feeling better!



Assignment 6 coming in a few minutes! Stay tuned!

Default Assignment #6: It Makes Sense



Wow, only five contestants remain. We've hit the halfway point! So now it's time to really test your abilities.

It's time to get sensual! And not in that way. lol Anyway, this week is all about the five senses - hear, touch, taste, smell, and see. Your assignment this week is to portray your assigned sense to the best of your ability. They were assigned in alphabetical order. lol

Assignments:
Ao Kanashimi - Hear
Deus Toutatis - See
Nymphalis Antiopa - Smell
Render Me Useless - Taste
Scarlet Renoux - Touch

This assignment is due no later than Wednesday, Jan. 30. To send it, you can PM it to me here on Guru, or send it to one of the following emails (but just in case, it might be helpful to let me know you sent it there so I won't forget to check it).
[email protected]
[email protected]

Try to get creative with this one, as some are easier to portray than others!

And of course the ever popular rules:
  • No editing (other than cropping), modding, PhotoShop, etc.
  • Please send a cropped and uncropped version of your picture
  • No headgear

Good luck and have fun!

...and we're back on schedule! Yay!


This week's garland of rainbows and mood rings goes to Render - it is better to give than to receive, and you gave us a stunning shot this week

Ember, I really hope you're feeling better soon!


Oh yeah - and everybody should listen to "Midnight Garden" by Bond. It explains what I was thinking when I was coming up with my assignment 5 theme

Default Assignment #6 submissions

A little earlier this time! hehe And here they are, in alphabetical order!

Ao Kanashimi (Hear)

Judge 1: I love what you did with this assignment. The whisper looks wonderful, and you stand out from your partner perfectly. I think the Koss/Melonni portion of your assignment should have been left out, though, as although I understand where you were getting at with it... it just isn't necessary. If you had cropped them out of the photo, I definitely would have given you full marks.
Judge 2: I love your take on the sense of hearing! Your poses are absolutely wonderful and creative, but when I see it I think of gossip first rather then the sense to hear. Also I know that it probably would have been difficult, but it would have been nicer if Koss and Melonni were closer together perhaps, or not in the shot at all. Even though I know you are in this competition (thus the main star) I get distracted by the heroes in the background. Overall though I love your creativity in the posing, I hope to see more shots with that in the future!
Judge 3: I really like your shot! I do see hearing in here, and I applaud you for taking a different approach than the "safe" music one and having someone whisper in your ear. I do see your sense here, but I have to say that even with your explanation I don't understand why Koss and Melonni have anything to do with this assignment. Yes you wonder throughout Nightfall if they are in a relationship or not but I really think this shot would have been better had they been left out. But because I do see your sense right away and I see you first, you still did a good job.

Deus Toutatis (See)
This was our favorite/your best picture of the 3 you sent in:

Judge 1: What a great portrayal of sight! You definitely look like you are examining the markings. You stand out well from the background, but the brightness of the 'glyphs is a bit distracting. Still, overall, I think you did wonderfully. Your mistranslation made me LOL!!!
Judge 2: The fact that we see both of your eyes (instead of half your face) deffinetly brings an inch into a mile because the sense you received was sight. The text on the wall stand out, but we know you are looking at them, and to me it only enhances the fact that you are using sight even more. I think you did a good job on this assignment! Just brush up on your translations a bit...
Judge 3: I really like this picture! There are so many different ways to portray sight, and I was looking forward to what you would show us. I clearly see sight here as you are trying to read those ancient markings. The only ordeal is that the markings are bright so they stole my attention first, but then I quickly see you.

Nymphalis Antiopa (Smell)

Judge 1: Phew! It really looks like it stinks! It certainly looks the part, and Nymph definitely appears to smell something awful. I think the cropping could have been closer though as there is a lot of space to either side. Still, I think you did a great job with this.
Judge 2: Your little story made me lol, simple, yet funny to me. The fact that your in the slums and that your ranger even LOOKS like she's smelling something foul, adds to the uniqueness to remind people that you can't always smell roses and daisies all the time. Your cropper could have been closer I think, although I still know that the main focus is you.
Judge 3: lol Yes I bet it does stink down there! Ewww. I totally see smell here and I think it's creative how you took the approach that you did. I wasn't sure how one could represent smell, as it is probably one of the morr tricky ones, but you did great! And you are still the main focus thanks to your white armor. Awesome work this week!

Render Me Useless (Taste)

Judge 1: I honestly had no idea how you were going to do this. Your photo is definitely taste, thats forsure! You did pretty well on this, Render looks really cute about to sample that food, but I do think that a closer zoom and perhaps even a bit different of an angle would have helped make it so the food wasn't the first thing I saw.
Judge 2: Heh, I can almost imagine Render with saliva on this picture...a difficult sense to portray. Because it is difficult, your general idea (looking at the food tray wistfully) is a good one, but the lighting on your face just bothers me! I know that its difficult to plan exactly where the servers will walk to, but perhaps you could have experiment with the other ones, as I believe the background would have looked more interesting as well.
Judge 3: Mmm tasty. That's making me hungry! lol I do see taste here, but I did see the food tray first so it's a little distracting. Other than that, I think you did very well this week. Taste to me would be a hard sense to portray but you pulled it off nicely. Well done!

Scarlet Renoux (Touch)

Judge 1: Very well done this week Scarlet! Your photo is very well composed. You stand out well from such a dark background and the place you are in matches very well with your outfit which is a nice touch. (No pun intended!)
Judge 2: Normally I would have thought it strange that of all the things chosen to touch, you chose a candle, but I'm glad that your story explained that aspect. I think your shot is simply great, and the armor you chose is perfect, and matches the theme and the background wonderfully! Even if I didn't know what sense you got, I would have been able to tell just by looking at your picture.
Judge 3: Great job this week! Big turnaround from recent assignments! Before even reading your story, I could tell that your sense was touch. Great job portraying Scarlet reaching out to touch the candle. The story was a nice touch as well, clearly goes with your photo. Of course, that's not part of the assignment so it won't affect the score, but you still did fabulous! The picture is dark but you are still the first thing I notice. I think you nailed it this week!

There you have it! Expect results later today or tomorrow, same with assignment 7!

Default Assignment #6 results

Yep, we're very early this time! So I figured instead of keeping everyone in suspense, I'll go ahead and post this week's results, and the next assignment! lol Here we go.

Scores:
Scarlet Renoux - 9+9+10=28 (up for immunity)
Deus Toutatis - 9+9+9=27 (up for immunity)
Nymphalis Antiopa - 8+8+10=26
Ao Kanashimi - 8+8+8=24 (up for elimination)
Render Me Useless - 7+7+8=22 (up for elimination)

Immunity:
Scarlet Renoux: We felt you nailed this week's assignment! Even if we hadn't known what your sense was, we felt we could tell easily what it was. Really nothing bad to say about it at all.
Deus Toutatis: You've done it again! You once again amaze us, and all three of your shots were great. Of course, we can only judge one, and the one we chose was excellent! We could clearly tell your sense was sight and that you were reading. Very good job!

This was a tough one but unfortunately only one of you can win:

Immunity

Congratulations! You may choose an in-game prize of 3 non-elite tomes of your choice (don't all have to be the same profession) or the chance to send in THREE pictures for next week's assignment (we will judge your best one).

Elimination:
Ao Kanashimi: Your shot was okay on its own but we felt it would have been so much better without Koss and Melonni in it. They were a distraction that wasn't necessary and took the main focus off you.
Render Me Useless: Your shot was fine as well, but we felt that you could have changed the angle or something to make you the most prominent thing in the photo. The first thing we saw was the serving tray.

This was a very tough choice, and it's only going to get tougher as we get closer to the end of Guild Wars' Most Wanted. We've looked at past performances and such, and we have made a decision. It's hard to see anyone go but unfortunately someone has to.

Eliminatee

Assignment 7 coming in a few minutes! Stay tuned!

Default Assignment #7: Battle of the Professions



Well, well, well. We're down to only four contestants left.

Things are getting close to the end. The final 3 are approaching. As you know, this contest was designed for any and all professions. So what we want to see this week is you showing us why your profession is so great! But we don't want you to just go out and stand next to a bunch of dead monsters you killed. We want you to actually battle it out with a fellow contestant! But you have to stick with your primary profession. We don't want to see an elementalist waving a sword around. We want to see an actual battle scene showing us how your primary profession owns! You've been paired up based on your time zones to make it easier for you.

Show us a battle scene with both of you portraying why your profession is the best. In addition, tell us why you think your profession is the best. But be sure that you and your partner are shown in the picture (with you being the most prominent)!

You will be judged on how well you showed us you battling your partner, and 1/3 of your score will come from the written portion. There is no length limit for that. Also, each one of you is to submit YOUR OWN picture and answer! If one of you does poorly, your partner will not be affected. You will not be judged as a team, but you will be judged on how well you showed us that your profession is better than your partner's.

Here are the pairings:
Deus Toutatis and Nymphalis Antiopa
Render Me Useless and Scarlet Renoux

This assignment is due no later than Wednesday, Feb. 6. To send it, you can PM it to me here on Guru, or send it to one of the following emails (but just in case, it might be helpful to let me know you sent it there so I won't forget to check it).
