Photoshoppery Game : Exquisite Corpses

Remember that game where you have a bit of paper drew something secret and pass it another person?

Well here's a photoshoppery site version.
http://anexquisitecorpse.net/
maybe a verbwhores multimongia photoshop game ?

Quote from: "mr rou-rou"
yup, get a new thread going, we'll play that, just don't put a stopwatch on it


Well that game is known as an Exquisite Corpse (which i didn't know)....as is the StoryTime2 thread in GD, anyway.....

Basic rules from that website.....

Corpses are constructed from the top down. Each player is responsible for filling a 450 pixel X 200 pixel space. Your space may contain anything that can be contained by a photoshop file. Photoshop is not required, but whatever image manipulation software you are using must be capable of producing a file — .jpg files ideally — readable by photoshop. Scan a drawing. Use photography, clip art, whatever. So long as it the right size and the right format, no imagery is proscribed or prescribed. Unlike some historical examples of Exquisite Corpses we are not using any strict anatomical model. It's pure free form.

The person previous to you will have composed their segment and snipped off the bottom 15 pixels to get you started on yours. That strip of pixels will now dictate to some degree what you can do with your space. You have to pick up where those tail ends leave off. That strip of pixels will now dictate to some degree what you can do with your space. You have to pick up where those tail ends leave off. If you don't, nothing will join up later and what the hell was the point, right? As long as you are employing what was given you, in whatever way you like (that isn't ignoring it), you can do anything you want. You have the option of including and modifying the strip you are sent if you feel that doing so will smooth a transition and benefit the Corpse generally. Or you can only use the strip as a cue and fill you 200 vertical pixels with completely original material.

and you end up with.....



Obviously the here rules will need a little tweak (if it gets played here) and open for discussion.

I think maybe groups or 3 or 4 (5 at the most) random people per corpse, We could pm the bottom to the next person - whoever starts it should either stick the images together (the others pm the full image to the starter (maybe) when done or post them in one post, although that creates a line between the two....



either way we can stare at them with a slack jawed horror type look at  seeing what our sick collective minds have created all in a single thread - much like a satanic Tony Hart's gallery - with the collective titles of images listed of course, for that extra added effect.

What do we think? Too soon after Jalopy? Good idea / bad idea? Those rules are shite mate? (i didnt think of them anyway) Go to bed?

Discuss it or tell me to fuck off now then.

Sounds like fun - so please, fuck on.

There's one thing that confuses me - In the original game the finsihed scribbles were always folded out of sight.  Is it the same here? For instance, can a player see the entire last image before sticthing something new to it - or just the fifteen pixel-strip snipped off the end?

Otherwise it sounds brilliant - I can see it leading to a huge leaning Babel of RGB - a towering totem-pole of styles - maltese architecture drowning scrollbars in tiers - a deep, seething gallimaufry of brain-jumble.

You are Das Boßmeister so you can set out all the rules & procedures & boring tedious things. But two things I'd suggest are that it's something wider than 450px, and that it's not limited to small groups.

Sounds like a nice idea and it'll keep multimongia clipping along. I've seen a couple of these done elsewhere using Illustrator and it's turned out some interesting corpses.

Count me in.

Well it looks like you've got your first five Mr. Monkey. Do you want to have a trail run just to see if it works out?

Hows about, if it catches on that is doing a horizontal one. it could turn out some interesting wallpapers. Just an idea like.

Just the snipped bit (i have no idea how big 15 pixels is, but as long as its enough for the next person to be able to see what they have to blend, it should be ok shouldn't it?

yes i think so too. Those "rules" i just copied and pasted as a guide.
Hows about 600?

Quote from: "ccab"
and that it's not limited to small groups.


The web site up yonder where i stole the idea from has 5 people per thingy. Probobly best to see how many peoples want to do it fir,st i suppose, and must remember that you wont see the full fruits of it until the last person has done their part and the size of the thing, although a huge one would be an interesting sight to see. ...by my reckoning 5 people would take around a week, and be 1000x600 in total size....

i think its just the amount of people per thing we have to sort out really.

i think it will, as long as people don't piss off halfway through, because that would kind of leave the thing hanging

I'd like to do a little something on this but I don't have a lot of free time at the moment, so as long as there's no major time pressure I'm in.

Gah..I'm all confused now. Rubbish Monkey seems to think it my turn but Spaced thinks it isn't.  Is it my go now, if so who do I pass the 15 pixels on to.

Cerys, they didn't leave you out, did they?! That's terrible! - I'd hoped it'd reach you just in time for staircases piled high with witch-skulls on bat-velvet. ;-)

Rubbish, can the latecomers join in?
