No More Entries Recreating Tutorials

Following the discussion and the poll, we no longer allow entries completely recreating tutorials, and we also don't allow entries primarily based on photoshop templates.
Submission Rules have been updated with this piece:
Not Allowed:
Entries entirely recreating/copying some Photoshop tutorial, or entries based on Photoshop templates.
It's ok to use a tutorial, but your submission should be significantly different from the original in the tutorial.

Cloning is boring and little to be proud of

Does this mean no one can ever make a tiger faced celebrity.

So if i submitted this image now, it would be disqualified?
'cuz this was based on Rain's tutorial.

It's ok, i think i get it now.

It may be based on a tutorial, it just can't be exactly the same as the tutorial.

Good move. I think I have given high marks to shoppers using these things. I never used a tut that I can remember nor any of those ready made thinggies so am exempt I guess.
It kind a sucks because I was going to look into cutting some sorners with those templates but never got around to investigating them enough to play.

Making a duplicate of a tutorial image is what is verbotten.

If using parts/layers of psd sources: I'd mix them up with other sources, so it doesn't look like a revision of the template image. Moving the layers around and recoloring it would be akin to cloning.

First we had frankenfood, and now we have frankenchops.

Just say no to clones...
