>>> MOBAFIRE WORM v2.0
So, it didn't really work well last time, mainly because we were new to collaborations... but now we're all awesome and I really would love to see this made 8D I believe we need more activity in this forum, and what better way to promote creativity than working and sharing with our peers?! (... I may or may not be going crazy from my secondary education degree)



>>> WHAT IS A WORM?
A GFX worm is basically a line of graphics made by various designers/artists that transitions from the previous piece, while at the same time allowing the next person some type of design to follow up on in a creative/abstract manner.









>>> RULES:
- Try to keep the flow! If the previous entry has a green line that should enter your section, continue it and find a way to incorporate it into your part! Make sure your section and the one before it work together! It's all about collaboration, if there's a clear clear clear divide between the parts, what's the point of the worm? D:
- Try to keep your focal away from the edges that would be hard for the next person to use, for example, if you have a render, find a way to ensure that if it DOES spill over that it is easily incorporated into the next section.
- Upload your section in high resolution so it's easy for people to work with.
- Don't tamper with previous entries; people learn from their mistakes and everyone here can accept some honest and constructive criticism.
- It doesn't have to be League of Legends related! Go crazy with ideas, be creative xD



>>> DIMENSIONS:
Height: 450px
Width: 600px



>>> TIPS & TRICKS:
- Ensure you have the previous entry open in your program so you can copy colours, extend designs, etc into your section!
- Don't just create something blindly, try and plan a flow, ensure that what you add to the worm fits the previous entry: even the tiniest shade difference in colour is noticeable!
- If you're stuck, ask for help! The previous participant can always send you a copy of their PSD for you to look over :)



>>> EXAMPLE WORMS:
- Please look at these first to get a "feel" of what a worm should be like!

I love this idea. I'm just pretty bad with making GFX stuff. Could I also just draw something? I think I can take care of the transition somehow. :D
I'd love to have slot number 7! I can also take number 1 if that makes more sense ...

:D zomg you're going to draw stuff for the worm?!?!?! D: That's awesome! Sure, did you want to start it off? I'd be happy to allocate you spot number 1 and 7 if you like. If possible, could you include the MobaFire logo somewhere in the first one, so people know it's a MobaFire worm (possibly the words "MobaFire Worm" too, but that's up to you!).

Yay, slots #1 and #7 taken!

ill decide when it gets going. People are unaware of what a worm is ergo I see this falling apart...Hence my "wait and see" status.

Well, there's plenty of examples in the OP, and I do detail what a worm is... including a link back to the first MobaFire worm thread :/ Is there any other way to make this clearer to people who aren't familiar with the concept?
