My assignment cooks - accepted and rejected

posted on 3rd of june, 2009

I tried not to be boring, really. I don't think I'm able to win the assignment. I compete with myself trying to do my best and - that's what is important - to surprise others. That's a nice goal worth of hours to draw.
So I drew two cooks. The second one (Robot cook) was rejected as assignment picture but accepted as a usual one. It's not bad in fact: everyone knows level 5 images sell mostly by subscription for 42 cents only and image of level 1 may bring more revenue this way

From bad photo to good collage

posted on 5th of june, 2009

Sometimes it's a pity when photo you like is not of proper quality to be accepted as stock photo or it is rejected because of being a "well covered subject". You may leave it be of try to give it a new life. As a collage, for example.
Try to seach the web for interesting tutorials to any graphic program (Photoshop, for example) and give your photos another chance - to become a good collage.
Sometimes it's enough to play with some color effects, sometimes it takes more and you can hardly recognize the original photo in the final image. All depends of your skill, creativity... and free time :)
Anyway, when rejection reasons are discarded photos you like have future again.

WOW!!! I would love to learn how to do that. I especially like the "Nostagia - Green Collage" one!

Nice final results! But wouldn't the files be rejected for limited commercial usage or overfiltering??

Hi, indeed I agree with you, it's not to give up at all.
Cheers :)
