A Challenge To All

Postby CodeZTM » Mon Jun 18, 2007 3:41 pm

Ok everybody, here's the scoop. Anybody can WRITE who they are.... Anybody can SAY who they are. Anybody can define themselves with dictionary-like words... But! Who can describe themselves abstractly?

The Challenge:

Create A Photoshopped (or paint, or whatever) collage incorporating images of who you are on the inside... This may include advertisments, anime characters, or whatever your heart desires.

No words may be used, no innapropriate images (must be orggable), and gore must be kept to at least pg13-14ish.

Images can be any format, and can be animated if necessary.

Images must also comply with the screencapping rules set forth in the Screencaps forum (Click Here To See The Rules).


Anyway, have at it. (I'll post mine later when I get to photoshop...)

This is from back when I was pushing to be most helpful but it applies just as well here.

And then there is this. It wasn't made by me or about me but I think it fairly sums up my attitude on the org. At least usually, sometimes I slip and start treating this shit seriously but that doesn't happen all that often and I usually regain sanity pretty quickly.

not a great shot, but better than the other side.

I always thought that AMVs were a slight indication of what the editor was subconsciously or intentionally feeling at a given time.

That's about as real and accurate as it gets.

I could've sworn there was already a thread for this. Here it is.

That's who you are. That stuff about "this is you on the inside" is fluffbunny mom-talk. It's what you tell small children to soothe them, the mental equivalent of "kiss it to make it feel better."

Or, you know, live in denial and Photoshop a pretty sense of self if it lets you sleep at night. <3

Wow, I never thought that quote would ever be appropriate.

In other words, that's all good and well if you choose to define yourself and others solely by your physical image. But most people I've met do not, and thank goodness for that.

Several studies have shown that facial attractiveness is positively correlated with both familiarity and typicality. Here we manipulated the familiarity of typical and distinctive faces to measure the effect on attractiveness. In our first experiment, we collected ratings of attractiveness, distinctiveness, and familiarity using three different groups of participants. Our stimuli included 84 images of female faces, presented in a full-face view. We replicated the finding that attractiveness ratings negatively correlate with distinctiveness ratings. In addition, we showed that attractiveness ratings were positively correlated with familiarity ratings. In our second experiment, we demonstrated that increasing exposure to faces increases their attractiveness, although there was no differential effect of exposure on typical and distinctive faces. Our results suggest that episodic familiarity affects attractiveness ratings independently of general or structural familiarity. The implications of our findings for the 'face-space' model are discussed.


In other words, inundate us with pictures, and soon we'll think you're the next Playboy cover.

But continue exuding your overdeveloped sense of realism if it lets you sleep at night. <3
