Layer Tennis Finals: Be There!

layer tennis.jpg

It’s hard to believe, but the Layer Tennis season has come to an end, just as abruptly as it began. We look back upon the last few months now with a disturbing level of nostalgia. We worked behind the scenes, we cheered from the sidelines, we even sweated through a match doing play-by-play (easily the most stressful, frightening and ultimately rewarding afternoon of our lives).

To celebrate the Layer Tennis finals, two simultaneous matches will be going this afternoon:

Chris Glass vs Shaun Inman
with John Gruber doing play-by-play

Jason Koxvold vs James Hutchinson
with Rosecrans Baldwin in the booth

And maybe at the end the winners will have some kind of sudden death emboss-off or something. Catch all the action at 2pm CST (that’s 3pm EST and noon PST) right here on the Coudal Sports Network.

Are You Ready For Some Tennis?

Long ago, designers played Photoshop Tennis, a sport beloved for both the euphoria of the creative volley and agony of the slow-rendering defeat. Champions were made. Well, sports fans, prepare yourself for the return of Photoshop Tennis, in the form of the even more strenuous Layer Tennis (yes, it’s beyond Photoshop since there are so many programs that can make juicy, delicious layers). But how does it work, you ask?

Two artists (or two small teams of artists) will swap a file back and forth in real-time, adding to and embellishing the work. Each artist gets fifteen minutes to complete a “volley” and then we post that to the site. A third participant, a writer, provides play-by-play commentary on the action, as it happens. The matches last for ten volleys and when it’s complete, everyone visiting the site votes for a winner.

On September 28 the season kicks off with Shaun Inman vs. Kevin Cornell and commentary by John Gruber. That’s Layer Tennis, live every Friday, only on the Coudal Sports Network.
