Contest Brief

Hi, folks. I have had a great time with these contests and thought I should give it a shot for another thing. I recently held contests to update publicity photos for my full band ([url removed, login to view]) and my duo act ([url removed, login to view]), but I still perform most of the shows I do on my own, so I realized I should probably get some new publicity shots, or at least, improve some of the ones taken previously.

As with the other contests, these were decent quality pictures but have boring backgrounds, so I never used them at the time. But I like how I look in these pictures, so hopefully someone can do something fun with one of them that I could use as a publicity shot. I perform concerts and school assemblies for kids (especially ages 3-10), and my show has been described as: bursting with comedy, creativity, audience participation and outrageously fun songs. So that is what I'm looking to represent here. Be careful about the description of me doing concerts for kids, though, because I probably don't want something that would come across too babyish or gummy bears and rainbows and all that. My music is more rock style than anything else. If you look at the previous contests and some of the things I rated highly (and compared to things that were not high rated), you can probably get an idea of what might work. I would also recommend checking out my website and videos for some ideas. Look up Eric Herman on YouTube and Google.

Pick one (or more) of the three pictures to add a different background (and possibly foreground or floor), or cut me out of a picture and put me somewhere else entirely. Whatever works. Two of the pictures (pic1 and pic2) are very similar to each other, so it is probably negligible which one of those you would pick. But pic3 is different, and in a way I like that one best because I am a little more active in the shot, but there is an additional problem on that one in that I am smiling with my mouth open, and I do not have the greatest looking teeth. But if you want to use that one, and can also touch up the teeth in a way that looks natural (coloration, softening the one fang a little), then go for it. The tip of one of my fingers is also barely cut off in that picture, though that may not be noticeable.

**********************
VERY IMPORTANT!!!!! Do not use any licensed imagery!! If your entry has Disney or Star Wars images, or anything like that, I CANNOT USE IT!! I would hate to see your time and effort wasted, so please use only original material, or public domain.
**********************

I am not a huge fan of extra words or symbols like musical notes and stuff like that. That being said, the right thing is the right thing, whatever it includes, and I certainly will not rule out entries just because they include extra words or musical notes. But keep that in mind.

I will try to provide feedback as best I can throughout the contest. I may be pretty blunt, though, but please understand everything is subjective for me and not necessarily a reflection of the work. You might do excellent work, but for some reason the idea doesn't grab me. But the hope is to get you and others pointing in the right direction.

I have almost no budget for this, but in addition to whoever wins the contest, I will also offer $15 as a runner-up prize of sorts, if there are other pictures that did not win that I think I might be able to use, especially if they happen to be from a different pose than the winner. If that is the case, I will offer to hire you as a separate project to use your entry file(s).

Have fun, be creative, and please feel free to ask me questions.

    I say this every time, but I am really blown away by the talent and effort shared here. This may be my hardest choice yet, as there are probably 5 or 6 real contenders. I'm going to show all of the entries to my girls and my agent and we'll pick a winner (and a couple of runner-up winners) over the next few days. Happy 2014, everyone!

    #105: Good, but the playground slide is too big, proportionately, and it's disturbing that a kid would slide right into the path of the school bus on the street. :o) Actually, the school bus eventually driving off the ledge is also a little scary, but that's more subtle. Anyway, I do really like this idea. If you win or place as a runner-up, we could tweak it a little more at that point, eh?

    #102: I like that a lot. I'm not sure you'll have time at this point, but yes, if you could add a few other things, that would be good. Maybe an elephant, a roller coaster, an airplane in the "sky." Stuff like that.

    • 3 years ago
    1. EricHermanMusic

      • 3 years ago

      Also, looking more closely at it, I think I would prefer it to be an island in the sky kind of thing, so the background is just clouds (I can faintly see buildings in the background on the sides). Cool idea, though.

    I like #91 and #93 quite a lot, except that the zebra isn't seen well in either. In #91 all we see is the zebra's butt, and in #93 the face should be looking out around to the left of me. I would also love an elephant to be in #91.

      I said in the brief, and several times since, that I don't like musical notes as part of these kind of things. I also don't like the shading/lighting of my image the way you have it. But for #84, if you took out the musical notes, and used the original coloring of my image, that might be pretty good.

    #67: Unfortunately, that's a big step backwards for me. Going back to #15, I really like the idea of me standing on a hill, with the road going up, and all of the extra images (birds, planes, etc.) being small and in silhouette, not cartoons as you have them now. So more like #17, but pull out a bit, and use the other colors (red/purple) and change some of the images.

    Wow, so many new entries! Thank you, everyone. Unfortunately, I need to go out for a few hours right now, so I can't comment on anything at the moment. When I get back I will try to comment and rate as much as I can, but at this point, with less than a day left, I may only comment on things that I think really have a chance to be contenders, but for a tweak or two.

    #49: I like the multi-colored pictures the best. That shows off the gimmick of the image the best. Very cool. One thing that would have to be changed is the atomic bomb in the lower left (or whatever it is... but it looks like an atomic bomb).

    #42: I really like the design style here, except I look terrible darkened like that. Get my image back to a vibrant shading and this would definitely be a contender. I would also love to see another design or two similar to this, but just with some different colors and shapes and such. This is great, though, as it is (except for how I look).

      • 3 years ago

      You're still pretty far off. I guess I don't understand what happened... The original picture of me, attached as a file here, is the right color and brightness and all that. Did something change on your end when you cut me out the picture?

      • 3 years ago

    #44: The patterns and blue color are too much of a clash and distraction from me and what I'm wearing.

    • 3 years ago
  • EricHermanMusic

    • 3 years ago

    #36 and #37: These are a step backward for me. I had asked to lose the stripes and try just a solid background. Even a white background might work great, to show off the great colors in the middle of #14 and #33. Can you please show me #33 but with a few different solid backgrounds?

    • 3 years ago
    1. EricHermanMusic
      Contest Holder
      • 3 years ago

      Ah, the more I look at #36 and #37, I like them a lot, too, but I would probably crop out the light fixtures at the top. A lot of times simpler is better, and more "stuff" doesn't necessarily help. But I would still really like to see #33 with some solid background colors behind the middle image with me and the cool color splashes.

      • 3 years ago
  • EricHermanMusic

    • 3 years ago

    I like the style of #39 better than #40, but for #39, I don't like the purple outline around me, and I would prefer the picture widened just a little so my hand isn't touching the edge.

    #38: Cute, but instead of the birds, if you could add in some animals that match those from my "Elephant Song" video, that might be a great fit. (Look up "Elephant Song" on YouTube and you'll find it.)

    #17: I think I prefer the reddish color scheme from the left side of #15. Maybe try me on that side, instead. Minus the war imagery, of course. As far as what else to put in there, I'm not sure. Maybe an elephant, dinosaurs, an airplane (not a bomber, though), a pirate ship, some birds... fun stuff that might have more of a connection for kids and my songs.

    #30: I really like the electrified nature of this. That's cool. I'm not sure that a "Tron" reference is a great thing, but maybe something sort of sci-fi or steampunk might work in this style. I do think you'll need to center me more... The framing wasn't great on the original photo.

    • 3 years ago
  • EricHermanMusic
    Contest Holder
    • 3 years ago

    #33: Ah, I'm not sure those colors work, either. Maybe try losing the stripes and just go with the center image? I'd also rather the whole picture not be so wide like that, so if you cut out the stripes and crop it in, that should do the trick. Try some different solid colors as backgrounds. But I really love the image of me and the color splashed behind me, so that's all perfect. And the outline is a better thickness now.

    #29: Well, the devil horn hand gesture won't work for this. And the flying stars aren't my thing, either. The color choices are kind of odd, too. Something similar might work, but the specifics here aren't a good combination.

    • 3 years ago
  • EricHermanMusic
    Contest Holder
    • 3 years ago

    #23: I like the style of the clouds in the background, but I really don't like the rainbow thing coming out of the guitar. And though the bird looks okay in that style, the cat doesn't really look good at all.

    • 3 years ago
  • EricHermanMusic

    #19: Nah. #20 is pretty good, though it kind of gives me a "fall foliage" kind of feeling that I don't think would be that useful.

    • 3 years ago
  • EricHermanMusic
    Contest Holder
    • 3 years ago

    #18: It's too dark and too busy. Actually, I guess the dark colors are a nice contrast to my color, but it's more the imagery that doesn't work. I don't really like the concept of the fake concert with a silhouette audience in front of me.

    • 3 years ago
  • EricHermanMusic

    • 3 years ago

    #31 is really clever, but I wonder if you could try making the board vertical instead of horizontal, so I take up more of the picture. #32 is also a very clever idea, but I'm not sure it's something I would use.

    • 3 years ago

    #24, #25, #26, #27, #28: I really like some of the design styles in these (especially #25), but I wouldn't use any of them because it looks like I'm standing on my tippy-toes in each one, which is a little weird. If you can adjust the position of how I'm standing (or adjust the ground surface accordingly) so it doesn't look like that, then these would be great.

      And there appears to be some kind of small white stripe or glitch or something on the right side of my face (left side of the picture). That's not on the original photo. Can you check that out?

      Instead of peach and blue for the stripes, maybe try light yellow and blue? That would kind of match my shirt and tie color scheme a bit.

    #15: It's interesting, but I'm not crazy about the split screen. Remember that I am the subject, and you've reduced me down to a small part of the whole picture (my shadow doesn't count). I also don't like some of the specific imagery in there, like the male/female symbols, the hearts, the bomber plane, the music notes (again). I do like the look of it in general, though. If you could cut it to just one half so I'm the main focus in the picture, and play around with some different imagery, I think it could be great.

    #9: I really like the white border around me, but not really anything else. I've already said that I'm not usually crazy about music notes and stars and things like that, and the look of the whole thing is kind of "tropical dance party." I would suggest taking the cutout of me with the white border and showing it off better with a darker or more colorful background.

    Still have the idea to stretch the cord from the guitar to the base background.

    #12: The puzzle design is nice, but the lettering is distracting, especially split up how it is. And "music" should not be a part of anything... "EricHermanMusic" is just my handle here and my website domain name, but I don't refer to the "music" part of that anywhere else, really. But I'd like to see this with just the background. That might work pretty well.

    #10: The design is pretty cool, but I'm not crazy about plastering it over the top of me. I would keep it to the background and ground. Normally, I wouldn't like music notes in there (I've said this several times now), but they aren't that noticeable and blend in pretty well with the design.

    #8: I'm not really liking the kids in there, nor the rainbow.

    #7 is good, but I'm not sure that's enough. Good, though.

    #1: I realize the bobble head style won the band contest, but I don't think it works here, the way you have it. My head is big enough as it is. :o) But this just looks kind of freaky. The background style is cute, though, if maybe just a little girly/cutesy.

    #6: Cute, but I'm more of a rock performer, and I think the barn and cow gives more of a country/folk impression. The monkey hanging upside down from the tree is really good, though. I'm also not crazy about the cropping, with my feet not being in there. That doesn't look right to me.

    One thing I like about #4 is being on the stage. That looks good. I'm not sure that's enough to be interesting, though, but the other stuff added just won't work.

    #4 doesn't work at all for me... I am a solo performer, so putting other "musicians" on stage with me isn't good, and they look like licensed characters (you may have created them, in which case, good job with that... but they *look* like licensed characters, regardless), and as I said in the brief, I'm not usually a fan of musical notes and symbols like that in these things. I'm already holding a guitar... so music is implied.

    #3: I like the skateboard idea, but the background isn't that interesting. Not that you want to draw attention away from the subject, but there's a point when, if something is clearly Photoshopped, you might as well go for something a little crazier. I'm not saying it needs to be something crazy, necessarily, but in this case, I think it would need something more.

    #2: Pretty good. Kind of a sleepy time vibe to it, though, which might not be that useful.
