Name: Samuel Harris

Age: 26

Species: Human

Do you consider yourself to be: wicked or angelic?
I would consider myself to be more wicked.

http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i318/Safyre420/Sim%20Contests/Wicked%20Angel/Samuel2a.jpg (http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i318/Safyre420/Sim%20Contests/Wicked%20Angel/Samuel2.jpg)

Why do you want to be a model?
I'd like to be a model because I have always wanted to try my hand at modeling. Also, being a model I can show off my expensive tastes.

Short bio:
Being the eldest of the Harris family, Samuel pretty much got everything he wanted and grew to be quite a snob. He has very expensive tastes and seems to think everything should just be given to him.

Name: Benjamin Harris

Age: 24

Species: Human

Do you consider yourself to be: wicked or angelic?
I would consider myself to be very angelic.

Why do you want to be a model?
I want to be a model because there doesn't seem to be an equal representation of "normal" people within the modeling world.

Short bio:
Being the youngest of the Harris family, Benjamin wasn't as spoiled as his elder brother, but he liked it that way. He kept to his books and other creative outlets. He kept his head out of the clouds and began his journey into his dream career in astronomy.

Which Do You Consider Yourself, Wicked or Angelic?: Angelic.

Why Do You Want To Be a Model?: Mostly to show the world that there is a bit more to zombies than the “evil brain eaters” stereotype. (although meeting nice girls is a bonus, too.)

Short Bio: Born and raised in a small town, Daniel led a nice, comfortable life until he became a Zombie after a tragic hot tub accident, and since than has been active in the Zombie Rights movement. He is quite a romantic and hopes to one far off day settle down with a nice girl with "brains".

Name: Uruha
Age: 21
Species: Human
Do you consider yourself to be: wicked or angelic? I think i'm Angelic..

Why do you want to be a model?
Because I want to do something excited in my life! I haven't done much when I was living in the orphan house.. I also couldn't study at the university for the lack of the money.. so I thought this is the only work is suitable for me since everyone says that I have the look.

Short bio:
Uruha was living in the orphan house until the age of 18, after that he moved out to small house and worked in various jobs such as delivering pizza and newspapers. Uruha is shy guy but he wished to have someone to love one day, he does not care about the gender when it comes to love.

Why do you want to be a model? Actually, I don't. It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it. And mainly because I'll do anything in exchange of a few coins of gold.
Short bio: Although he wants to look evil, Reg is a goofy at heart. He has human ancestry and he loves pets.

Unskilled, why are your links not clickable? The rules about .png is that they shall not be posted in this forum, but linked to.

Question to the host: Must there be 10 different contestants to make it a winner
who might recieve a star? Or is it 10 apps and 4 rounds who can give the contestants the chance to win a star? It would be nice if you updated the contestants list :)

~Jessica~_SC
23rd Jan 2008, 10:53 PM
unskilled already said they will be fixing them :)

as for stars, i think the prizes we are offering are good enough :p but since you asked, in the rules it says
The contest you win must have at least four rounds.
and we will be having 4 rounds :)

As for number of applications, the rule is 10 entries, not 10 separate s2c members

The contestant list is updated each day lol and it is now updated. Yay 8 apps now! :)

Do you consider yourself to be: wicked or angelic?
My mother-tongue is Dutch. And in that language the words for 'wicked child' and 'angel' are only different by one letter. '(B)engel'. So, I guess it's up to you to decide what I am.

Why do you want to be a model?
My mother (http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y212/debworld/sims/sourapple.jpg) was a model. She always tells with joy about the great adventures she had in that time of her life. And I am not having a pleasure aspiration for nothing, I am always in for fun.

Short bio:
Straight As in school. Single ATM. I Love to garden. I am a happy little Sim... Although, even though I don't believe in God, sometimes I think someone must be controlling my life on the outside for it to go so smoothly.

Task 1: 7 Deadly Sins
Pick one of the 7 deadly sins and depict it for an artistic photoshoot. Remember this is a professional photoshoot, so try to keep it classy :)
(examples: Lust (http://quizfarm.com/images/1100132775lust.jpg), gluttony (http://www1.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/439447/2/istockphoto_439447_seven_deadly_sins_gluttony.jpg), greed (http://www.suspiria.eclipse.co.uk/chamber/images/portfolio/DA_LC5.jpg), sloth (http://fc05.deviantart.com/fs14/f/2007/102/b/e/7_Deadly_Sins___Sloth_by_elestrial.jpg), wrath (http://homepages.mty.itesm.mx/gustavol/Fallen.jpg), envy (http://www.suspiria.eclipse.co.uk/chamber/images/portfolio/DA_LC7.jpg), and pride (http://fc04.deviantart.com/fs13/f/2007/092/b/8/7_Deadly_Sins___Pride_by_elestrial.jpg))

Task 2: 10 Commandments
Pick one of the bible's 10 commandments (http://www.victorystore.com/images/ten_commandments_large.jpg) and depict yourself breaking one for your second photoshoot. This one doesnt have to be artistic or anything, so you can make it humorous or sad or whatever you want.

Task 3: Optional Freeshot
You can post up a freeshot if you want, just make sure we can see your sim's handsome face ;)


Round 1 ends on Monday January 28 at Noon PST (8pm GMT) Countdown Clock (http://www.7is7.com/otto/countdown.html?year=2008&month=1&date=28&hrs=12&ts=12&min=0&sec=0&tz=-480&title=Countdown%20To%20Round%201%20Ending&lang=en&show=dhm&mode=r&cdir=down&bgcolor=%23666666&fgcolor=%23FFFFFF)

unskilled_operator, i mean on a set, something that might end up in a magazine spread. Artistic means creative...like the entire set is red and your sim is wearing red (to go with lust) or your sim has piercing green contacts in (to go with envy) and the rest of the set is a neutral color so his eyes stand out. Just needs to look like a real photoshoot. Also, as long as you make the links to your pics clickable, they should be fine ;)
pearlisthegurl, you can change your apps to two different sims but the apps must be complete (along with this round's entry for both of them) by the deadline--just edit the posts you already made. Also, dont use loading screen pics this time :p They are way too tiny and blurry :)
If any of you have any more questions please feel free to ask. And yes you all can change your entries if you want but they all must be complete by the deadline so that judging can be done and we can move on in a timely manner :)

if you want to :) you can resize them to make them forum-friendly and hyperlink them to the larger versions (so that when we click the picture it leads to the larger pic) or you can just put the link to the pic. its up to you

So, I just did something really stupid. I overheated my videocard so much with playing the new Unreal Tournament, that I think I killed it. (That's what you get for ignoring the weird sound the van made already, I guess.)

And I don't have any money this week to replace it.

This means that I am very, very sorry, Jessica. But I have to drop out.

Thanks, Anonymous.. I'm sorry to go. (That's what karma got me for temporarily abandoning Sims for Unreal, I guess. On the other hand.. I can get a better graphics card now when my pay-check comes in.)

I have a qustion about not loading screen pics. Which size is acceptable, i always use the forums size, but they are too big in kb's anyway, so i have to link to at least 1 picture. Shall i use links to all the pics in a larger size than the forum size?

I might have a tip for picture sizes..

I don't know which program you use, but in photoshop there is an option 'save for web'. This saves your picture as a .gif (instead of the much bigger .jpg file most people use.)

When you save as .gif in Photoshop you can also pick how many colours you want in the picture.. lowering the amount of colours a bit also lowers the filesize (you really don't always need 256 colours in a picture, I usually find my screenshots can do with as less as 128.)

I suppose other programmes as the GIMP have an 'save for web' option like this too.

Hope it helps.

Being that both my brother and I are competeing in the model search, we decided that our photoshoots would tell a story. For my photoshoot, My fiancee(whom is portraying my brother's lover) and I chose to show off our bookworm side and picked the local library for the shoot.

Well we had alot of people leave us so early but those of you who have stuck with this competition should not be disappointed.
My team of judges and I would like to see your sweet side in this round. Two of you will be leaving us once this round is over. Let's get started :)

*note: you can have other sims in your photos if you want but make sure your sim is the focus*


Round 2: Sweet


Task 1: Delicious
For this magazine photoshoot, you will need to be enjoying a piece (or pieces) of fruit and trying to get people to buy/eat more fruit. Make it look delectable, make it look desirable, make people think about your ad next time they're in the grocery store. Remember this is a professional photoshoot, so try to keep it classy and dont forget about your model's surroundings :) You can add text to make it look like an ad if you want.

Task 2: Virtuous
Pick one of the 7 Virtues (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_virtues) (the first ones listed on that page) and depict yourself being it for your second photoshoot. This one doesnt have to be artistic or anything, so you can make it humorous or sad or whatever you want.
(the virtues are: purity, self-control, charity, ethics, patience, kindness, and humility)

Task 3: Optional Freeshot
You can post up a freeshot if you want, just make sure we can see your sim's handsome face ;)


edit: an extension has been granted, Round 2 now ends on Sunday Feb 3rd at Noon PST (8pm GMT) New Countdown Clock (http://www.7is7.com/otto/countdown.html?year=2008&month=2&date=3&hrs=12&ts=12&min=0&sec=0&tz=-480&title=Countdown%20To%20Round%202%20Ending&lang=en&show=dhm&mode=r&cdir=down&bgcolor=%23666666&fgcolor=%23FFFFFF)

ok i edited the post to explain.
For task 1, it is an AD meaning you're trying to get people to buy more fruit....so you can add text to it if you want but i'm not requiring it. Adding text will probably help with your points for the round though.
For task 2, you need to do one of the virtues on the top part of the page, the ones i listed. Not the theology/roman catholic/etc ones :)

#1 Total Score: 74
Comments:

kind of safe, tame images...not much creativity involved. would've preferred you to use separate situations for each model and a separate girl instead of repeating the same thing...that dulled the edge on your entry a bit - I know they're brothers but they're meant to be different aren't they? the images were okay maybe try a different camera angle to better show the situation for the wrath pic?
Your pictures were dynamic and the photography was good, but it was unclear in both of the photographs what you were portraying. For your first photograph your wrath could easily be confused with jealousy, and for the second it is simply unclear.
I liked Samuel's expression in task 1. It portrayed 'wrath' really well.
In task 1, I like the lighting you chose, but I would have liked to have seen a closer picture of your sim--your sim isnt the focus, the giant heads are lol. I don't see how task 2 portrays breaking that commandment. Your sim also doesnt seem the library type; the setting doesnt look like a professional would have chosen it (your sim could have caught them elsewhere not at the library?). Your freeshot is nice though.

#2 Total Score: 72

For task 1, i liked the setting you chose, but I would have liked to have seen a closer picture of your sim and I dont think the thoughtbubble fits into a professional photoshoot--his body language should have been able to tell us he was checking her out without the need for a thoughtbubble ;) Task 2, there is a big leaf in the way and is more of the picture's focus than your sim is. I think you could have expressed the adultery without hiding your sim's face. The freeshot is nice.
Interesting photograph but it is unclear without backstory whether the second picture is adultry or not. Remember that your pictures need to tell the story.

Task 1 didn't seem as if he was lusting for her, but more like admiring her. I think if he was looking at her body or something while she was walking by then that would've worked better.

#3 Total Score: 60
Comments:

I'm a bit disappointed that you asked for an extension and you didn't make any improvements to this entry nor do the other one. Your sim's face is completely hidden in task 1 and Task 2 was a bit boring. Your freeshot was ok.
I didn't get the lust of task 1. It just seemed like he was whispering something sweet to her or something. Task 2 and 3 were good.
I would like to see better photo composition from you in the next round. Also more clarity in the subject matter as the second picture doesn't seem to tell us much about it's purpose.
overall you did a decent job, I think you could've better defined the "keep the sabbath holy" idea shot though and made sure that your model sim's face was showing in the lust shot (because the challenges are about him, not his date).

#5 Total Score: 81
Comments:

I like task 1, i think it could have been a little better if your sim had actually been eating some of the foods lol. Task 2 was nice; the scenery was a bit bland. Freeshot was great :) Try to put your sim in different hairstyles/outfits in each photoshoot in future rounds ;)
I think you did a pretty good job on the sins and conveying what you were trying to show (it's fairly clear with the food and with him looking at someone's girlfriend), only thing I'd have done differently would've been to possibly show him eating in the first shot, he looks a teensy bit detached from the shot.
Although you had the right idea for task 1, I thought you should've had him eating everything in sight rather than posing in front of the food. Task 2 was great! Task 3 is very sweet. He's adorable! ;)
Good entry, lets see some more dynamic photography and posing for future rounds though! interact with stuff!

#7 Total Score: 92
Comments:

All tasks were very good!
I really like your task 1 picture. Task 2 was ok, but it would have been better if he had already stolen it and was making his escape lol. Your freeshot was really nice.
Great entry, I especially loved your second picture!
I liked the stealing image but I'm not quite sure about the wrath image...I can see that he's angry but there's no direction to it, there's nothing you've shown to show what or who he's actually angry at. the stealing image I felt was a little bit too photo-realistic though...maybe try blending your photos in a bit better so they fit the sim?

#8 Total Score: 85
Comments:

I like your task 1 picture but I don't see how it is depicting greed. Your task 2 picture was creative; I wasn't expecting it. Your freeshot is a bit boring but I like the expression on your sim's face. He looks like he's up to no good lol
I thought your graven images one was very creative to put him in the witchdoctor style outfit and have him clawed up and your freeshot was good for showing your model's personality and quirkiness, but I didn't quite see the "greed" in the first shot...he looked more thoughtful than anything.
Your photographs are stunning but they dont really illustrate the themes. I had to look back at the thread to see what their subjects were. Also it seems like your freeshot and your 2nd task photo should be switched.
I didn't get task 1 at first, but then the pirate outfit did kind of set the whole 'greed' thing. :p Good job!

#10 Total Score: 108
Comments:

Your task 1 picture is amazing and accurately depicts lust; it's a bit trashy though and the directions said to keep it classy :p All I can say for your task 2 pic is "wow". Good job ;)
...All I have to say is wow!
What can I say? These photographs are stunning. You've put a lot of effort and thought into them and it shows. Keep it up!
your shots were good, they did a good job of displaying what they were meant to portray and didn't leave me wondering at all...not much to say here.

#13 Total Score: 99

Very good job! I love task 1!
Fantastic entry. Your effort really shows. Excellent, hope to see more like this.
I thought you did a good job on these, they're clear on what they're portraying and show your sim as the main focus of the shot to show his style and personality.
I really like your task 1 picture--the photoshopping looks a bit weird though because the beer can and the wine bottle are crystal clear and everything else is blurred and muted. You accurately depicted sloth though and your photo looks nice. Those poor sims in task 2 lol. Overall good entry.


Remember, no one is being eliminated this round....round 2 ends in 20 hours

edit: Ruthie asked for an extension, so Round 2 now ends in 1 day and 20 hours :) New Countdown Clock (http://www.7is7.com/otto/countdown.html?year=2008&month=2&date=3&hrs=12&ts=12&min=0&sec=0&tz=-480&title=Countdown%20To%20Round%202%20Ending&lang=en&show=dhm&mode=r&cdir=down&bgcolor=%23666666&fgcolor=%23FFFFFF)

I'm sorry I'm late with mine... I was hoping to see the scores so that I see what I needed to improve on(that's not cheating, right? because if it is, than I'm really sorry), but than before I knew it, it was friday night and I had to be out of the house for family stuff until this afternoon, so I couldn't work on my entry... I'll really try not to let it happen again.

HNC, yes your fruit ad is showing up for me, but you could try reuploading it and changing the url to it if you continue to not be able to see it.

we have only gotten 3 entries for round 2 so far, and the round ends in 15 hours. No one has pmed me to say they're dropping out, so hopefully everyone will be submitting by the new deadline :)

Thanks a lot judges for giving me such high scores, i am very thankful for comments and scores. :) Unfortunately i started working with task 1 before reading properly about task 2, and forgot all about what task 2 was about, (never heard about 7 virtues in my entire life), i have been really busy with rl, sorry i didn't read properly all tasks from the start off :( i was not able to log in untill now. So, i am not sure i can work with these tasks in some few hours without sleep. But i'll see what i can do, if i decide to drop out i'll bring you a message Jessica.

Thanks for the feedbacks, judges. Let's see if I make some improvement this time. Glad RuthieA asked for an extension.


Task 1 - Delicious

For task 1, I've tried to recreate something I saw, but in the end, it doesn't look like the original, neither like an advertisement. And, uh, I forget about the classy thing. Oh, boy! Shame on me! Here is the link, anyway.

Task 2 - Virtuous

Reg can be very kind and sweet if you are haired and have four legs.

4th Feb 2008, 3:45 AM
Well we had alot of people drop out of this competition but hopefully those of you who have stuck with it are enjoying it.
My team of judges and I would like to see your muted side in this round. One of you will be leaving us once this round is over. Let's get started :)

*note: you can have other sims in your photos if you want but make sure your sim is the focus*


Round 3: Muted But Sexy


Task 1: Perfume Ad
You will be in a perfume ad shown in women's magazines, the ad will need to be in sepia (or black/white) and will need to be a sexy beach scene to make the women want to buy the perfume to get a hot guy like you to frolick on the beach with ;)
You can add text to make it look like an ad if you want, text needs to be white only. Photo must be sepia OR black/white to make it look muted (meaning: no color).
Examples [keep in mind your sim will be the focus, as the women are in these ads]: Pic 1 (http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y279/NrllAless/blog/news/antm/dionne-ep9-2.jpg) and Pic 2 (http://img206.imageshack.us/img206/9995/cwantmreneecontainer005ja0.jpg)


Task 2: Car Ad
You will be in a car ad featured in all sorts of media (magazines, billboards, internet ads, etc). The car needs to look hot and shiny of course, and your sim needs to be posed with it, looking hot too ;) Try to be creative with this one (and try to make the ad better than the example pics)
You can add text to make it look like an ad if you want, text needs to be white only. Photo must be black/white to make it look muted (you are allowed and encouraged to add splashes of color to highlight details).
Examples: Pic 1 (http://img5.allocine.fr/acmedia/medias/nmedia/18/35/08/06/p1.jpg) and Pic 2 (http://img5.allocine.fr/acmedia/medias/nmedia/18/35/30/77/18381620.jpg)


Task 3: Optional Freeshot
You can post up a freeshot if you want, just make sure we can see your sim's handsome face ;)


Round 3 ends on Friday Feb 8th at Noon PST (8pm GMT) Countdown Clock (http://www.7is7.com/otto/countdown.html?year=2008&month=2&date=8&hrs=12&ts=12&min=0&sec=0&tz=-480&title=Countdown%20To%20Round%203%20Ending&lang=en&show=dhm&mode=r&cdir=down&bgcolor=%23666666&fgcolor=%23FFFFFF)

Hello again contestants. Unfortunately one of our judges has disappeared on us- but the remaining panel members have some scores/comments for you :)

Stormy is MIA. I have no clue where she is, she hasnt responded to my pm and I dont think she has logged in since the incident the other day that messed up accounts here. But we have enough judges to continue on without her :(


#5 Total Score: 60
Comments:

I found your images very creative, I especially liked the humour in your "patience" virtue. you've got a good idea of what's going on.
I like task 1; i think it could have been a bit better if he had been enjoying the fruit. Task 2 i think we can all relate to lol, I think it was a good choice--patience leads to things you like, in our case, sims2 lol. I also liked your freeshot. Overall good entry.
I fail to see how you reaching up into a what just so happens to be a fruit tree constitues as "enjoying" fruit. Also perhaps your 2nd task picture could have been better conveyed if instead of showing "Sims2 Seasons" you had shown the loading bar. Remember that these are pictures that you shouldn't have to explain with words. It is possible for someone who didn't know to think that you were possibly waiting for the expansion pack to be released?

#7 Total Score: 66
Comments:

While interpreting wine as a fruit was interesting, the instructions stated you should be enjoying the fruit, making the fruit look delicious, and mouthwatering. This ad is very much a wine ad, it focuses on class and moodily lit backgrounds. Your second picture is ok, but it seems unprofessional, even for a candid picture. The theme is also unclear without reading the title. You could just as easily be visiting a family friend.
your grapes image was very good and I liked your charity image, I'd have maybe focused a bit more on your sim and the children in the charity image.
I like your fruit ad; i think the only thing that could have made it better is if he was eating a grape (or drinking some wine). I really liked the charity picture--yes it was him doing charity work, but it looked like it could have been in a magazine article. Really nice freeshot.

#8 Total Score: 68
Comments:

Your task 1 was creative--i think it could have been better if he was nibbling on one of the apples though. I like your task 2 but i think it would have been better from a different angle, so we dont see closeup dog butt :p Your freeshot made me giggle :)
your fruit image was very amusing and I LOLed at your free shot and thought it was very creative, but I felt you could've done a little bit more with the kindness virtue.
I have to admit, your first image is so bizzare that I was left thinking, wth? But it grew on me and it will definatly have me thinking about it next time I'm in the grocery. I dont think that your virtue image was very creative but you threw me for a kilter again with the lederhosen. So while this entry as a whole left me very confused and wondering about many aspects of the universe as I know it, it was an interesting entry and I think you definatly deserve high marks for the creativity.

#10 Total Score: 74
Comments:

I love your fruit ad. Task 2 is cute but I can't tell that it's him :( I love your freeshot.
I liked your idea of him as a santa and your fruit image was really good at showing the beauty of your sim. good job.
Excellent entry, your first image is a little plain, doesn't capture the apple very well. However it's acceptable. Your second image is stunning. I'm not sure what virtue dressing as santa would fall under but to be honest I'm not sure what all the virtues actually are. lol. Beautiful photography and composition.

#13 Total Score: 64
Comments:

I thought your fruit shot was good, but I would've focused a bit more on him than on bombarding him with the fruit...it felt a little bit cluttered. I liked the idea of the kindness shot but it was a bit vague really...I think you could've been a bit clearer on the kindness.
Very colorful fruit ad. Task 2 looks a little weird, the sims look larger than the store--would have looked better to have them smaller, or further away from the store. I liked the idea for it though :) I really like your freeshot.
Not sure that you are actually enjoying that piece of fruit rather than standing there with bedroom eyes holding it in your hand. Regardless it is obvious you put a lot of thought and time into it so good work. Your second task photo was also very well thought out and the photography was excellent. Nice work.


Remember, no one is being eliminated this round due to all the dropouts....round 3 ends in a little less than 3 days.

sorry to see you go sakrayami.
due to this dropout, anyone that completes their entry for this round will automatically move on to the final round--no eliminations.

sakrayami
6th Feb 2008, 2:13 AM
Yes, i am sorry too. Unfortunately, i am very tired now, and to be honest, i am fed up by judges silly comments. The first comment that the bottles were shining, and that my sim had bedroom eyes. That is what i call silly comments, and unnecessary. If one do not have a clue that glass, bottles reflects light, (not paper, not the sims pixels) then i think it's immature judging. I was prepared i might get lower scores this time, cause i didn't really understand the tasks, and i had to hurry. Should it be an ad for a magazine, or not?
I could add text, but i didn't have too, but if i did, it would be fine for the judging. This is very confusing Jessica. I don't want to drop out, but i might drop out. I don't know. I have already typed i dropped out. If i can do some pics i might get satisfied with i can post them? I love working with b/w or sepia pics.. :? (yeah, i already know i am crazy, where the heck is all these smilies?)

honeynutcows_SC
6th Feb 2008, 2:24 AM
i hope you dont go sakrayami your scoring really well and i'm sure if you tell the judges instead of keeping quiet they will explain more fully what they meant,i know how comments can hurt but you have to take them with a pinch of salt i used to get upset but i learned it only helps you improve its not written to hurt anyone

sakrayami
6th Feb 2008, 2:34 AM
Thanks honey, your are a real honey :) :) All one need some times is a few kind words, not more. If jessica think i am not dramatic, i will not drop out. I am tired, but
that will soon go over, hmm, i say no more. :) I didn't like my own work this time, so i understand that i got low scores, i really do. Jessica, still ok that i post pics? I did type too quick that i am dropping out.

honeynutcows_SC
6th Feb 2008, 2:37 AM
*hugs* i'm glad your staying if you dont understand any tasks or comments pm and i'll be glad to help :)

~Jessica~_SC
6th Feb 2008, 4:52 AM
sakrayami, the comments are to help you improve for future rounds (and future contests) and to compliment you on things we liked about the entry. The only thing that effects whether you win or not is your score.
If you had a problem or a question, you could have posted or pmed me about it prior to dropping out. If you would still like to participate, please make sure to ask any questions you have either here in the thread, or in pm and have your pictures done by the deadline.

As for the comments, I think they were explaining you needing to work on photoshop blending (some things weren't blended in well). And you not understanding what the round was about, which you already said you know you didnt understand it :)

DourSim
6th Feb 2008, 5:25 AM
I'm just going to take the time to explain to you what we do when we judge.

Jessica gives us a PM with a list of criteria to look at for each round. It is not a photo/photo basis it is a overall scoring system (some hosts score differently) I open up all of your individual posts, then open up notepad with a list of each of the contestants names and the scorecard beneath them and I go through each post and decide proper scores.

Followed Directions:
Uniqueness:
Creativity:
Beauty:

I do this in a fair manner in that I don't look at the names of the contestants or the person submitting the entry. I almost never (you can ask Jessica, lol) know who the heck one person is from another.
I judge the sim beauty and followed directions scorecards rather leniently, even if you didn't follow directions to the T or even come mostly close I'll give full points (as long as it looks like you put effort into the entry). Beauty is objective so unless I can't see your sims face for some reason you'll score well for beauty. I am much more stringent in the "creativity" and "uniqueness" categories but I believe that is fair. One of the things that you as contestants have to consider is what you need to do to set yourself apart from the crowd. 10 contestants who all do a photo for "lust" as their vice is hardly unique (luckily you guys were pretty varied, but I was worried!) and 10 contestants who have their sim just standing around in a sparse set is hardly "creative" (again not so much of that here but for illustrative purposes)

Comments are a different story.

Just because the comments were made doesn't necessarily mean that your scores were drastically effected. Comments are given as a (optional!) form of feedback for contestants. They are there to let you know what the judges are looking at, what strikes them from the images, and their reactions to your work. Comments are not made for the judges pleasure, in fact it's a pain in the ass to give comments most of the time. But they are there to help the contestants improve their work, and as I said before, to let you guys know what the judges are seeing.

There was nothing "immature" about the comments given to you. I know that the judges comments are mixed up to make it more difficult for you guys to single out a judge but I made the bedroom eyes comment. To quote myself Not sure that you are actually enjoying that piece of fruit rather than standing there with bedroom eyes holding it in your hand. is not offensive or immature, its simply stating that your image didn't fulfill the requirements for the round. Is your sim doing something other than staring into the camera holding a piece of fruit? The instructions for the first task was to you will need to be enjoying a piece (or pieces) of fruit...Make it look delectable, make it look desirable and all you gave us was your sims standing around with an apple in his hand... I didn't take off major points for this error . I believe I actually gave you full points for following directions (I took off for creativity). The comments DON'T REFLECT YOUR SCORES.

Everything else I have to say Jessica has covered. So, I'm glad you didn't decide to leave us, and I hope that ALL of you understand the point of the comments and how your scores are calculated (at least by me)

sakrayami, I feel sorry if you have taken the judges' comments in a bad way. If you read them all, not only yours, you'll see that they make feedback for everyone, telling us what can be improved. As for the scores, with one judge missing, it's clear that the total score with drop down. Hope you can stay here. Your pictures were very good.

Personally, I think the comments that were addressed to me very amusing. lol

And heck, just do it for fun!

Thanks for explaining Doursim, I know how it is to be a judge, since i have been a judge in many contests on this forum. I had no clue who commented what. Yes, it's just a game, and fun to try to be creative with the pixels.

I am working with the car-stuff now, hope i can do it better next round :)

But a question: splashes of light in the car ad? Which mean i can have blue or red carlights or something in a sepia or b/w picture?

I am going to shut up from now!! *mods can be angry at many postings in a contest-thread*

~Jessica~_SC
6th Feb 2008, 7:57 PM
you should have a black/white picture, and you can make the carlights blue or red, you could color the sim's eyes, etc. Just little bits of color in a black/white photo.
i hope that makes sense :)

luvyuyu im not sure why you're disappointed, you've done pretty well.

Please ask questions if any of you are confused

I think I'm going to have to drop out. I've been kind of busy with and tired from school and real life plans, and I just haven't really had the inclination to put the proper amount of effort into the entries. The contest was really cool, and I feel sort of bad for backing out on it (especially because I'm new here), but just don't think I'm having as much fun with it as I think I should (my fault, not anyone else's). Next time I think about entering something, I really should remember just how much time and effort needs to go into these things. Sorry again for backing out, thanks for letting me participate and good luck to everyone in the next round :).

Luvyuyu_SC
7th Feb 2008, 11:51 AM
^ aw Ruthie T_T Hopefully we will see you in another contest..

question! does the perfume ad should be for women? women perfume? O.o I made one for men perfume but when I read the task again, you said it will be in women magazine so...?

~Jessica~_SC
7th Feb 2008, 8:28 PM
yes, perfume is for women. men have "cologne". if you dont have time to change it to womens perfume, you can remove the ad part and just make it a simple picture (without text and stuff).
unskilled asked for a couple hours extension so hopefully those of you who arent dropping out will have enough time to submit :)

I am very dissappointed over the contestants, i spent so many hours to make these photos, and now it looks bad for the contest, cause some do not seem to care to work with the task. That's why i didn't drop out, cause i was also thinking on the host, and the other contestants.. :(

Hello again contestants. Unfortunately both of our judges disappeared when it came time to judge (but since they are friends of mine, I am not worried about them not being around for next round). I asked fway and nostalgicpaty to emergency judge this round so you guys could get some scores/comments tonight. So here you go--only 2 out of 3 gave comments.

Total score is how much you've gotten in all the rounds so far, round score is how much you scored in this round.


#7 Total Score: 232
Round Score: 74
Comments:

I like your car picture. Your sim is a bit too far from the camera in the perfume ad. I like the freeshot
I liked your over all entry. Somethings I think that you could have worked on in task 1 was maybe having your sim more in the middle to make him be literally the center of attention, or you could have made the background darker and it would have highlighted your sim; I did like the pose he held in this picture. For task 2 I liked it but it didn't seem really sexy. Maybe because your sim was sort of far away and a little out of focus.

#8 Total Score: 215
Round Score: 62

I liked both of your tasks. I think you made good use of in-game poses. For your task 1 I think that your sim was the center of attention but i think to make this picture sexy was for him to look in the camera with maybe a more serious look. For your task 2 it makes your sim look very rugged and sexy in a way. By the way i really like the simlish touches.
Your perfume ad made me giggle, hes smiling at the camera and totally ignoring the hot chick (which isnt the way to get them to buy perfume but it still made me laugh :p ). I think for the car ad it would have been nicer to have you near the car, also it was supposed to be black/white, but i like your use of sims symbols instead of english. Creative freeshot.

#10 Total Score: 263
Round Score: 81

I love your perfume ad. Your car ad is nice, its so dark though, it could have been better with a little bit of color here and there. Overall great entry.
I Liked both of your tasks alot. I do want to say that in task 1 his arm looks a little awkward around the lady but i liked how he is sort of putting his thumb in his shorts. I do wish i could see his eyes more. For task 2 even if the spotlight is off to the side my eyes were drawn to your sim; i really like his pose in this.

#13 Total Score: 238
Round Score: 75

Very well done. I liked your whole entry. For task 1 I liked how there is a shadow on the sand of the 2 sims and how your sim is looking in the camera and looks very dominate. For task 2 i liked the red accents and the fact that it didnt take away from your sim. although i feel that the pose wasnt super creative it still worked.
Overall great entry, i like the splashes of color you added to the car ad :)


Remember, no one is being eliminated this round due to all the dropouts....final round details will be posted separately soon.

thankyou for the highest score again....... even though my entry was awful and i super didn't deserve it i cant wait for the next round!!

you have already won honey :) Congratulation. But what about the freeshot, does it count at all Jessica?

~Jessica~_SC
11th Feb 2008, 12:25 PM
well there is a whole nother round sakrayami, nobody has won anything yet lol

the freeshot can add to your score, like if your freeshot is creative, it can add to your creativity score, or if your sim looks unique in it, it can add to your unique score, etc

there is no specific scoring on the freeshot though, the scoring is based on your entry as a whole. Even if it didnt count at all, I know some people still like having it because its fun getting to take a picture of your sim without restrictions :p

Thanks for the feedbacks. Actually, there is a reason for my sim act like that on the perfume ad. :tooth: (http://img505.imageshack.us/img505/6727/screenshotwl8.png) It happens that I didn't manage to catch the girl's face on that shot. Anyway, here is the hot chick that was kissing him.

Sorry to be a little off-topic.

By the way, free shots are fun!

Well we had alot of people drop out of this competition but we are glad that the rest of you weren't quitters and stuck with this model search!
My team of judges and I would like to see your fantasy side in this round. Let's get started :)

*note: this round is all about your sim so please do not have other sims in the pictures*


Round 4: Fantasy


Task 1: Nature Shoot
You will be doing a magazine photoshoot in the wilderness. You can choose between garden or forest--for garden, think "garden of eden"...for forest think fairies and nymphs. You can appear to be nude if you want(with things covering you up of course). Try to make your photo colorful, vibrant, and serious (no smiling) since this will be an artistic picture. :)
Examples [keep in mind your sim will be the focus, as the women are in these pics]: Garden (http://photos-bikini-pictures.blogspot.com/2007/10/antm-cycle-9-photoshoot.html) and Forest (http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k94/Runestar1/Fairy-Fantasy/Woodland_Fae__Color__by_kedralynn.jpg)


Task 2: Tourism
You will be in a tourism ad featured in all sorts of media (magazines, billboards, internet ads, etc) all across the galaxy. You are trying to encourage people to visit a planet called Xynia which is an awful lot like Earth's Las Vegas except less flashing lights and way more color lol. Aliens love things to be colorful and clashy, like in Wizard of Oz (remember how vibrant and bright the city was?).
You can add text to make it look like an ad if you want.
Examples: Colorful City Pic 1 (http://www.fashionisspinach.com/images/0407/dorothy1.jpg) and Colorful City Pic 2 (http://www.judex.com.au/images/Emerald%20Cityfin.jpg)...Tourism Ad Pic 1 (http://travelnevada.com/images/content_images/ShowgirlAd.jpg) and Tourism Ad Pic 2 (http://travelnevada.com/images/content_images/BlueMan.jpg)


Task 3: Freeshot
This will be your last impression on the judges, so it is required this round. Just make sure we can see your sim's handsome face ;)


Round 4 ends on Saturday Feb 16th at Noon PST (8pm GMT) Countdown Clock (http://www.7is7.com/otto/countdown.html?year=2008&month=2&date=16&hrs=12&ts=12&min=0&sec=0&tz=-480&lang=en&show=dhm&mode=r&cdir=down&bgcolor=%23666666&fgcolor=%23FFFFFF&title=Countdown%20To%20Contest%20Ending)
Please feel free to ask any questions here or in pm :)

Jessica, i shall see if i can reach to do these tasks, i am in another contest where it's just aps so far. I am soon going away on a trip due to my work, and have stuff to prepare. But i shall see if i am able to finish the tasks in the finale. I love adventures and fantasy, but it's very much work. If i don't reach it cause of lack of time, so please forgive me, but i will give it a try.

Hello again contestants. Unfortunately one of our judges has gone missing again. I asked fway to emergency judge this round so that I could announce the winner before the deadline. So here you go--only 2 out of 3 of us gave comments.

Total score is how much you've gotten in all the rounds so far, round score is how much you scored in this round. And the winner is announced at the bottom of this post :)


#7 Total Score: 316
Round Score: 85
Comments:

I really love the task 1 picture, but i felt like nature was more of the focus than your sim, i would have liked to have seen just a little bit more of him. I love your tourist ad, but he seems a bit unsure, a different expression on his face would have been better. The freeshot made me smile, I wasnt expecting it, and it looks really nice.
This is a cute entry, I like the nature scene a lot, though the deer look like they're from a video game. Your alien pic is fantastic.

#10 Total Score: 343
Round Score: 80

I love your pics, but lol I can't help but be reminded of "The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife" by Katsushika Hokusai for your nature pic, lol. I liked your alien pic but the fact that your model has what appears to be a womans boob is disturbing. Other than the boob thing the entry as a whole was excellent. Very colorful!
While I really like your garden shoot, the thing covering up his private area looks a bit weird, and the entire pose seems to feminine, especially with his hair spread out like that. Your tourist ad is very colorful and nice, but it says "fun" and he doesnt look like hes having fun at all lol plus, it looks like he has man-boobs :p

#13 Total Score: 322
Round Score: 84

Ok let me say that I love your alien picture. The "flare" idea was priceless! The picture on a whole was excellent too, so good work. For your nature picture the model looks so handsome and one with nature, makes me think of a greek pastoral :D
Your nature shoot is nice, but it appears too feminine, and I would have liked to have seen his face more. Your tourist ad is very nice, and colorful. Overall good entry :)



1st Place Winner: rick brook [honeynutcows]
2nd Place Winner: Patrik Mondrian [sakrayami]
3rd Place Winner: Uruha [Luvyuyu]

Congratulations HoneyNutCows :)

Thank you to everyone who participated in this contest and didn't drop out. To all of you who dropped out, I hope you can participate in the female version that will (hopefully) be here soon. Thank you to my judges and especially to the EJ's for helping me out.

I will be pming the winners regarding prizes :)

oh wow! what an awesome contest. I don't think i've seen men displayed so well...must've been really hard to judge...

sakrayami
18th Feb 2008, 9:40 AM
dlisted, no that was expected. So the judges hadn't really a hard job :)
Congrats Honeynut! I said early that you would win, but Jessica made
me belive it was an equal chance for everybody to win in the final round.
If i knew that this was not correct, i would have dropped out. I did not
work that hard to gain another 2nd place, but because i thought i would have a chance to win for once.

Luvyuyu, why have you linked to 2 different pictures? I have never seen this in a contest before. I don't think it's just ok to safeguard oneself so the judges shall decide what picture is the best?

Jessica: how come my round 3 is commented again instead of round 4? And why was i mislead to think that the scorings from the other rounds was not going to be used?

No harm Honeynut, this has nothing to do with you. You have had some great pics.

@sakrayami the 2nd pic I linked to is not in the contest, the one i show is the one i enter in the contest but the other i post there because I like the most. I post the pic in the contest after asking my bro and sis what they think about ^^

everyone was doing that in MSB (miss starless beauty) I was in that contest before.
The judge only taking the pic they view not the one i linked to.


Anyway congrats honey for the first place and sakrayami for being the second! ^__^


I'm always the 3rd x3 but i'm happy I took the first place in the final round before they put all the scores together 8D this is new for me hehe.

~Jessica~_SC
18th Feb 2008, 8:38 PM
Sakrayami, i made a mistake copying/pasting your comments in my rush to get the winner posted up last night. I put up your proper comments now. As for the "misleading" thing, it says in the very first post that the winner will be the person with the highest score from all rounds (added together). I'm not sure why you posted that here anyways, as you mentioned it in your pm to me too.
I also explained in my pm to you that the additional pics she (?) linked were not scored. Her score was based on the pics posted, not linked.
I dont want to argue with you more and clutter up this thread. You seem to have a problem anytime anyone scores higher than you, even though you didnt even score low!
Judging this contest was hard, even if sakrayami wants to assume it wasnt, you guys had some very hot guys and it was difficult judging each round, you all did so well!

I'm sorry that sakrayami had such a horrible time in this contest, but I hope you two, honeynutcows and luvyuyu had fun :)

i really really enjoyed this contest jessica
and sakraymi i'm sorry you feel you should drop out just because you are going to come second i have been in many contests most recently the bachelor that i knew i wouldn't win becuase scores were cumlative, i didn't stick it out to win i stayed because i enjoyed the host and contestants and making the tasks i'm sorry you have to feel that way you did amazing.

Thank you Jessica for understanding me, I only posted the linked pics because I was working on them and didn't want to just delete them, I know everyone take the displayed pic. everyone does that I guess.. o.o;;

Well I had fun in this contest! I hope everyone does too.. Jess you was really good host for not feeling down though most of the contestant drop out..

Hopefully I'll join your next contest ^__^

and yes i'm a 'she' ^_~

Good luck everyone and have nice day/night
