SCANDAL HEAVEN Fan Mosaic Project


This is a secondary gift project geared toward the spirit of "making" something for the girls, rather than "buying" something for them. In contrast to the T-Shirt Gift Project, which is fueled by donations, all members can contribute to this directly and have a distinct presence in this project.

What is the Mosaic Project?
Spoiler:
Well it's probably easier for you to see an example, rather than trying to explain it. Here's an example of an epic mosaic project:
To celebrate the 5 Year Anniversary of World of Warcraft, Blizzard started the World Of Warcraft Battlecry Mosaic Contest. Blizzard took submissions from players posing with a Horde or Alliance insignia and compiled 20,000 submissions into a giant mosaic. Check it out here:
http://www.wow-europe.com/wowanniversary/battlecry/
Another good example is damatte0924's fan letter submission, where he created a mosaic of the HARUKA CD cover using the girls' individual portraits:
http://www.scandal-heaven.com/t2762p200-scandal-heaven-fan-letter-project-2#163135
In the same vein, the goal of this project is to capture the spirit of SCANDAL HEAVEN and present it to the girls in a tangible form.

While we definitely won't reach the epic proportions of 20,000 submissions, we can use the submissions we do get to arrange the pictures into something simple like the SCANDAL insignia, a CANTA logo, or a simple shape like a heart.

The intended end result is a printed copy large enough to reveal some details for each individual picture in the mosaic upon close-up inspection.

OK, what is the deadline?
The deadline for submissions is Sunday, June 26 11:59 PM PST
Post it in this thread or PM it to me, wat.
Spoiler:
This project is considered as a "secondary" project.

Because a project of this nature is a little more ambitious, success is not guaranteed. At that time of deadline we will evaluate the status of the project and decide on whether or not to move to the production stage of the final project.

If we decide that we are unable to produce something worthy of giving to the girls, then we will simply put the project on hold until the next delivery opportunity arrives.

Let's do our best not to let that happen, though!

OK cool! So what do I do?
Submit a fan-sign style picture!!!

"Like what?!" you ask. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Yourself and your SCANDAL collection!
  • Pictures of yourself cosplaying as SCANDAL!
  • Pictures of yourself playing an instrument!
  • FAN ARTS! Fan arts are perfect for this kind of thing! *cough* kaito and your CANTA grafitti *cough*
  • Don't have a collection, or are creatively challenged? Print out the SCANDAL insignia, the SCANDAL HEAVEN logo, the CANTA logo, or a picture of your favorite member. Then, take a picture of yourself with it!
  • For those of us that are able to gather and meet, take pictures of the whole group!
  • Add your country's flag to your picture to show the girls that they have fans all over the world!

The possibilities are endless, really.

Of course, submissions must be appropriate for the girls so please check the rules!


Examples:

mc's examples...
With SCANDAL Fansign:

With SCANDAL Related Item:


wat's examples...
With absolutely no effort:

With a little more effort:

Graphics you can use (but are not limited to):
Spoiler:




White SCANDAL insignia with transparent background: http://i.imgur.com/UHxa4.png


So with that, let's do our best to make something really cool for the girls!

Thanks to mrmonkey for starting the gift discussions as well as for pushing the idea of creating something for the girls, chiy102 for the idea of a "video montage" which is similar in concept to a mosaic of stills, Koide for showcasing his fansigns on Facebook, and damatte0924 for submitting an actual mosaic for the last fan letter project, the inspiration from which this idea sprang, and of course SH staff for hearing me out and for the support!

RULES and NOTES

Golden rule:
Submissions are NOT REQUIRED to be posted to this thread. However...
If you cannot post it to this thread without getting in trouble, then odds are it doesn't belong here.

Size Rules:
Recommended: 640 x 480 (but it's OK if it's bigger).
Minimum: 320 x 240

FAQs
Spoiler:

Q: I submitted my Fan Arts to the Fan Letter Project. Can I submit here too?
A: Absolutely! In fact it is encouraged! More pictures is better!

NOTE ABOUT FAN ART:
Fan art submissions must be original compositions, whether digital or hand-drawn and you must be able to claim original ownership. Fan arts that you do not own and photo manipulations will not be accepted.

Q: Can I make multiple submissions?
A: Yes, but if you do please try to make them distinctly unique. If you submit 10 pictures of yourself sitting in the same chair in different positions, then chances are that won't work out very well.

Q: I don't have a printer. Am I able to snap a picture of myself and photoshop something SCANDAL-related into it?
A: Yes, since Blizzard allowed this for their project I will also allow it with some discretion. But DO NOT photoshop yourself into a picture of SCANDAL to make it look like you're there, that's kind of weird.

Q: Does the picture have to be recent?
A: No, not necessarily. If you can tie SCANDAL into it somehow, it's pretty much fair game.

Q: Do I HAVE to be in the picture?
A: No. Again, I'm following Blizzard's lead where they allowed people to submit pictures of things that were not necessarily people. For example, there's a submission where a guy taped an Alliance insignia to his dog. Again, submissions of that nature this will be included at the discretion of common sense.

Q: Why not this _________ project?
A: Like I said before, we need to start a little small before moving up to big ambitious projects. I saw ideas for a "cover video" DVD, and while it's really cool the problem is that not all members can really participate.

There was also an idea for a general "video montage" of messages from fans but editing video is difficult and having Japanese subtitles for each message is almost mandatory, adding to the complexity of the project.

So with all that in mind, there's a higher chance of completing this by the delivery deadline.

@d3nise

good question! bigger is always better because scaling down is easier than scaling up. I'm going to recommend a size of at least 800x600, but I will have to double check when I get home before adding this to the FAQ.

edit: above info is incorrect, please see rules post for size information

So I decided to make some examples again since this will be the first Fan Mosaic...

These are examples only so I only made them as simple as they can be, no creativity added, lol. Means also that this isn't my entry for this project. xD

Fan Picture with a sign saying whatever you like to SCANDAL:

Fan Picture with a SCANDAL item:

Dunno but when I took the picture the light appeared, must be the "automatic heavenly light effect" caused by the PB

I made the size there 800x600 something. Let's wait for wat to announce the recommended size.

So yeah, you can be as creative as you like as wat stated in the first post. Write anything or print in a paper, add your flag, add your collection, etc, and take a picture of it.

For me it's a lot more easier than writing a letter, you just think of something and take a picture of it. I hope same goes for the others.

Let's do our best then in making this SCANDAL HEAVEN Fan Mosaic Project a success!

I'm doing this as well, more pictures could really help create a bigger and better mosaic, though there is just the matter of size, of it being portrait or landscape because sometimes it's not going to look as good as it is. It just gives us more room to be creative then lol.

I must have been delirious when I posted that size recommendation. It really does not have to be very big:

Here are the real ones:
RECOMMENDED SIZE: 640x480 (but bigger is still ok)
MINIMUM SIZE: 320x240

That makes mc's example a little big, but it is still a perfect example.

So, be as creative or as non-creative as you like!

I also removed the requirement to post to this thread for those people that are shy. But keep in mind that your picture will be on display anyway in the final product. Tongue

So far yours and damatte's have been the only submissions, aside from mine and mc's examples.

There is still plenty of time, so when deadline gets closer I'm sure all sorts of people will come out of the woodwork.

About when June hits is when I'll start actively looking (read: begging) for submissions.

so please help out! June is coming up, which means it's CRAM TIME soon! submitting a picture is not only easy, it's also FREE; just look at how these guys have done it already!
