Corpse Tennis: Players, meet your opponents.[More:]

Round One
iconomy vs. ethylene
taz vs. me3dia
Slack-a-gogo vs. moonbird
mudpuppie vs. omiewise
papercake vs. MightyNez

Names listed first have first serve. Emails will go out shortly, detailing the rules, etc.

I think eth and I decided between us that she was going first, me3dia. Hope that doesn't gum up the works for you. This is going to be a lot of fun...thanks for putting it together for us!

were you with bon mot boy again?
posted by ethylene 19 July | 15:01
No problem at all, iconomy & eth. I was guessing from previous discussion.

Got the email. Thanks for setting this up, me3dia.

Stupid question: so... these are going VERTICAL instead of HORIZONTAL (like the Emcee), yes?
posted by papercake 19 July | 15:54
Yes. See the Corpse Tennis page for examples.

No deadlines, but try to get the sections turned around relatively quickly. In past matches, my partner and I gave each other up to a week to complete a section. That was waaaaayyy too long.

I leave it up to the players to pester each other to keep the corpse moving.

ethylene, that is sick and wrong. plus, you need 483 more. ;)

Cool cool cool. Thanks me3dia for setting this up. You are hardcore with your corpses. I was getting used to the MeCha "cheaters corpse" where the sliver from the previous slice is actually the first 15 pixels of your slice. That gives a little room for blending, layering, and what not. But I'm psyched to try it this way since it'll force me to polish up on my skills. moonbird - expect a slice later tonight.

Slack, there's plenty of room for blending and such -- you just have to be careful and not change the strip. The blending is done in your own section. For instance, I sent a player this:

And she countered with this:

Notice how the brown blur on the right was extended down into the image of a caramel apple she found? It blends perfectly, but all she did was keep the strip in a separate layer from the rest of the image, so that she could match it without altering it:

You can still see the line, but it blends well enough that it practically disappears in the finished corpse.

I didn't change a thing about the strip you sent me for emcee iii set three -- just lined stuff up.
