Exquisite Corpse III: Quilting


Log in to view the full-size image
Caption / Directions
Everyone grab a square!

Dimensions:
Each square is 128x128. There will be 8 per row, and 6 rows down to make 48 total squares. The final image will be 1024x768.

How it works:
The first person creates the first square and the order will go left to right until square #9, which will begin a new row. Rinse, repeat.

Your square should blend well with any adjacent square to the left and/or above yours. The final size of your square should be 128x128, and please keep in mind that all squares will be touching, but they won't overlap or be merged with each other. Here is a nice example: the full quilt of the sample on the left.

If you want to participate, check out the EC3 thread for guidelines and how to do so.

Compliments and are okay to post on this page, but if you need clarification on something, use the thread.

Wow, I know it's kind-of a spoiler, but I put the current pieces together and it looks really cool so far.
SEE IT HERE - SPOILER
But don't use this as a guide for the next piece...it did'nt add up and I couldn't find exactly where the problem was before realizing it doesn't really matter.

toad, I struggled mightily for like an hour with the gradient from Jango and couldn't figure out how to match it. I'm looking forward to seeing yours, and perhaps hearing how the hell you pulled it off.


»  GREYJELLO Jan 12 2006 6:10 PM
I have to agree with Bjorn about hearing how you guys manage that. I've been wondering the same thing.

You'll have your chance again, saufnase. Just be sure to stay awake until oddlife relinquishes his prisoner so you don't miss your chance.

move on ... nothing to see here ...


»  ODDLIFE Jan 13 2006 7:33 PM
b0rg9 has pointed out that mine is off by 1 pixel, but I'm not too sure. Here is his screenshot:

http://oddlife.mechapixel.net/align.jpg

and here is mine:

http://oddlife.mechapixel.net/quilt.jpg

I did use the SPOILER jpg above as a basis for all my work, so ummm, I don't know :( Just FYI I guess

----------

Edit: M-kay, I think I fixed it. I didn't have to modify anything except move the bottom of the spoon, tie, and jacket.

This red saucer/bowl/shoe is an excellent twist, it's going to be interesting to see what the hell it ends up being!

Don't want to step on anyone's toes since you're all great artists judging from this quilt alone, but there are several entries where you can clearly see the seam. (Most of them on the right side, which makes it more difficult.) If everybody could take a look at their entries and could probably fix it? Thanks!

(This coming from the guy who took the easy way out. )

Very cool! I'm glad you worked in the banana guy too. That's kinda why I had them running toward the edge like that
b0rg9 01/14/06 - 01:33 PM
yes! the rainbow's end is in sight! the stark red will be a nice change of pace.
toadslick 01/14/06 - 01:34 PM

i really like all the handwork going into these. this is the first time i've focused on painting rather than manipulating, and it's damn satisfying.
