Do textures count as using stock images?

Ah. That's a shame. :/

Well I've never even attempted to make a large piece.
So I'm thinking this might be good practice if I find time to enter. o3o

Dang filled up before i got here... I have a question about a competition like this, does our own photography count as scratch stuff? Like if we take photos of like light textures, normal textures and a focal, does that count as scratch?

You know what, if you want to join in moments, you may. At any rate, yes they do count as stocks. So basically your piece has to be all you, no using outside stocks, tetxures, anything. Only exception is using the standard Photoshop tools, not even extra brushes (other than your standard circle, smudges and such, best make your own), no fonts either, your text must be scratch if you're using any.

Trust me, it's the road to improvement!

Alright well 4 days starting now then I suppose, probably should have noted that beforehand. I'll start drawing up a concept soon.

You forget about this battle? I'm in no hurry to lose, just wondering.
