    Hey guys,

    I had an idea last night. That we start a graphics worm. We have lots of artistic people here, and I think this could be great fun.

    A graphics worm is where the starter (Probably me) creates a small, digital image, most likely in the size of 600x450, and then the next person in the list takes that, and makes a image of the same size, but continuing of from mine.

    As this goes on, in a horizontal right direction, we create a giant, long, worm. A digital mural of our artistic abilities.

    A good example is this site here: http://www.narutotcg.com/mana/leworm.html

    I will set up a page, probably from my dropbox, that showcases them all together like that.

    Rules/Guidelines:

    1. Put some effort into your part. We want this to look nice, something we can show off. If you don't have photoshop, that's okay. There are great free alternatives like Gimp, pixlr and paint.net that will do the job much better than MSPaint.

    2. Follow on from the previous artist. They left you trailing elements for a reason, use them, it makes it look so much more impressive.

    3. Leave trailing elements for the next artist, see above.

    4. Don't put offensive stuff in it, like porn or swear words. We want to display this! If you do, I just won't put yours up.

    5. You can join multiple times, just leave a little buffer for some other people to do so!

    6. When your turn comes up, try and get it done as fast as possible. A few days, max. I don't want to rush you, but I don't want to be waiting on some person forever. Say, 3 days, and then we'll move onto the next person.

    7. Save them high-quality and host them somewhere permanent. If you really, really need me too, I will host them myself, but I'd rather keep my dropbox low in size.

    8. Give me a seperate, 600x450 image. Just to clarify. :p

    Well, the idea was we always went right, as the previous person before moose (ie, frozen) is to the left.

    Interested as well. I've had a tablet for a while, haven't had a real reason to use it in a long time.

    Why are you doing this as separate images? surely it'd flow better if you let people stitch theirs straight onto the end?

    Well for one, if it's all one image, it makes it too easy to "lay over" things over the last image, without continuing on from the last person, which is half the fun.

    And it's easier for slow connections like mine to load :)

    If it was one image it would beome too massive to view easily very soon.

    I'm with YM on this one, whats the point in making a graphic worm if it's not compiled into a graphic worm. There's nothing stopping you from having both the whole image and the seperate ones.

    She is compiling the whole image together onto a website, but you need to take the prvious image, add a transition and move on. The reason that you can't take the current REALLY LONG worm (well, soon-to-be long) is because it would get to be really huge, and hard to manage. Keeping it modular, it's easier to manage/distribute and for aly to put it up on the website that she is putting all these together on.

    EDIT: basically you are stiching yours onto the end, but you just cut yours down so that its just YOUR 600x450 image. (to answer YM's post)

    So a worm walks into a bar...

    I thought it was really obvious from the example site, that they would all be made individually. But then maybe it's just the fact my connection didn't insta-load it and I saw it was in pieces.

    and what the heck, I'll throw my hat in the ring too, looks fun.

    ...and everyone laughs at him because worms aren't supposed to lose at limbo.
