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.

I was unaware of my stepping into cliche-land

You ever have a PS idea that turned into way too much work? This has the most time per pixel of any of my 'shops ever.
Im_Just_An_Ordinary_Panda 01/19/06 - 06:26 PM
Definately worth it Panda, it's a great concept and ties in well with stuff around it!

nice and colorful
Im_Just_An_Ordinary_Panda 01/21/06 - 05:08 PM
the color doesn't match to the tile above it. If/when you fix it, please leave the color on the right be, cuz I'm rollin with it!
Im_Just_An_Ordinary_Panda 01/21/06 - 06:35 PM
it matches fine for me, it's a png file, don't know if that would cause a color issue or not. email me a screenshot cause there's nothing I can do at this point. thx!

Im_Just_An_Ordinary_Panda 01/21/06 - 09:48 PM
I see it there, but I don't know how that happened. I wouldn't leave such a blatant edge like that. That screenshot has my entire tile darker than it should be. If I save it as jpg it might fix the issue but then yours won't match. Either way I save the file it looks fine to me, so I don't know what else I can do. Here is jpg
oddlife 01/21/06 - 10:10 PM
I sometimes think when this is all done ved should just put them all in photoshop, tweak as necessary and re-slice back into 128x128 pieces for the final presentation. But that would sort of breach the integrity of the whole thing. So I figure we're all big kids and we can sort it all out by the time the last tile's complete.

Great entry, oddlife!
b0rg9 01/21/06 - 10:32 PM
The tile matches fine for me too, it might be a difference with colour profiles, if the file is saved as a different profile than what you're using Panda it might show up different when you import it
hebtwo 01/21/06 - 10:58 PM
hebtwo, I think that might be the case too, now that you mention it. Mine is Working RGB (sRGB IEC61966-2.1) and here is PSD. I think I've covered all my bases

sorry oddlife, it seems I had a color profile mixup.
Im_Just_An_Ordinary_Panda 01/22/06 - 07:57 AM
it's all good Panda! I've done that too. Thanks hebtwo for figuring that out cuz I would have nevar remembered :sauf:

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 didn't add up and I couldn't find exactly where the problem was before realizing it doesn't really matter.

sorry aboutr that green glow from me... i should post the .psd for it.
(still want it? send me a PM)
fray 02/06/06 - 11:52 AM
how well does the green glow fit together? It looked mostly ok on my end, nothing a little smudge tool couldn't fix when we stitch.

But if anyone wants me to touch it up, let me know.
AsMuch 02/06/06 - 03:44 PM
edit: dupe
AsMuch 02/06/06 - 03:49 PM
I don't think it'll be stiched, As_Much. It'll probably be put up in the same fashion as the ones on the tiles.ice.org site. Any post-production "smudging" would be cheating.

Okay, time for the overhyped square.

Instead of someone calling next, let's do this in the forums. Perhaps a poll to decide who gets the honors. Looks for a thread link soon...

saufnase 02/22/06 - 12:03 PM
That's a good source pic. I, for one, am glad that you flattened your psd.

Now if you excuse me, I'll be in my bunk.
AsMuch 02/23/06 - 12:32 PM
sauf, your jpeg compression put a white halo on the right side of the image. If you put a black bg in the quilt's negative space, it lights up. Plus, when it's all said and done, can you post whatever PSD you have?
Thanks
