Contest Closed: Winner Announced!

Top Honors go to [deeterhi] for really Bringing Mirra to Life!.

See this contest featured in a gallery on my website!

Welcome to the "Bring Mirra to Life" coloring contest brought to you by [jsun].

I've decided to give a call out to all the artists who'd love to tap into the art world where I find my weak point. Some of you may know already that I prefer to draw in pencil rather than color my work. I consider coloring my weak point. However, I really enjoy other artists' works in color. So I'm holding a contest in which you artists of color will be coloring my "Mirra".

Everyone who participates will have their work featured on my website ( I will also link to your personal art galleries or websites on my website as well.


 The artist whose work I admire the best wins the original drawing by me. What does that mean? If I choose your work from all the submissions to be the best, I will personalize the original drawing of Mirra for you and mail it to you. It will be yours to treasure forever and your colored work will be featured in the Demented Wurkz hallowed hallz of fame forever!

Here's the Participant Banner for your houses

2006-04-12 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: s'ok tigerwitch i changed the link into an image link you just have to have <img:  at the beginning and then the other arrow at the end

2006-04-12 [Cia_mar]: it is simply amazing how the differant colors make the picture so differrant from eachother... even though it is the same great Job to all!

2006-04-12 [jsun]: :) You guys are the greatest! Your entries are beautiful and it gets me pretty excited. Xorn asked about a closing date. I think it would be wrong to announce a closing date just yet. Names keep adding to the contestant list and the wonderfull art keeps popping up. I'm gonna let it run a bit. Hope you guys don'tmind! :)

2006-04-13 [BinaryPhoenix]: Thanx, I justed wanted to know, so I could have an idea how much time we have to finish it... But I guess I still have plenty of time! ^_^

2006-04-13 [tigerwitch]: is it okay to do another b/c I got a really good idea on another color scheme for one and I'm dieing to try it out

2006-04-13 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: yeah i'm assuming it is.. i'm trying out digital colouring on GIMP.. and failing! =(

2006-04-15 [jsun]: If you want to do more than one, it's up to you. I'm here to enjoy.

2006-04-15 [dayah]: wow bratt...thats is jeloouse...

2006-04-15 [Bratt]: First off I just wanna say thanks to [jsun] bc I haven't had this much fun coloring another persons work since I did a collab with [Perplexity] and she prolly knows thats a long ass time ago we did that for the WRS. This was so much friggen fun to color the details in this were awesome and I love coloring skies, clouds, planets and anything to do with space and atmostphere. I'm not sure why Mirra came to me as a red head but she did and no matter what color hair I gave her I just simply had to keep the red. Very awesome linework [jsun] hats off to you. And kudos for the fun!

2006-04-15 [Bratt]: Awwww *blushes* thanks a bunches [dayah]

2006-04-15 [dayah]: I think I might do a coloring contest myself with a picture I just drew...I did an okay job on it, but I would like to see what other people would do with it...

2006-04-15 [jsun]: ;) Love it Bratt. Beautifull work. Oh and it's been awhile since I blushed. 

2006-04-15 [Bratt]: awww thank yas :D if ya ever need something colored well Im your girl. I lovers to color yes I do!

2006-04-17 [tigerwitch]: there's the new one wahoo

2006-04-17 [Mom]: Amazing Bratt....simply amazing.

2006-04-17 [Bratt]: Thanks so much mom. Im still not happy with her (shocking i know) theres something off about it so im trying to make some corrections about it now.

2006-04-17 [Silverbullet]: well, one thing that might be off with your pic, Bratt, is that the ring at the base of that tree doesn't bear the shadow that should be cast by the tree...

2006-04-17 [Bratt]: yeah might have something to do from the glow of the lamp right on top of it :/

2006-04-17 [Silverbullet]: might.. but if you look again, the lamp is behind the tree....

2006-04-17 [Bratt]: light travels and its not directly behind the tree, its to the SIDE. T I actually have a desk lamp I move around and use for reference. Thats not whats bothering me. But thanks.

2006-04-17 [dayah]: personaly I think its fine..I don't see much difference between anyone else and hers to the point in which you are talking about...

2006-04-17 [dayah]: but thats just my opinion..

2006-04-17 [Elisha Kelly]: mines at the three quater mark.... I am gonna aim for it to be finished by the end of the month... but I decided to re-onk it and damn there are a lot of lines :P

2006-04-18 [tigerwitch]: i'd say the hardest thing for me is doing skin tones, they're a pain in the bum, because I like putting in cheek bone highlights and nose ones

2006-04-18 [BinaryPhoenix]: I love the comic book version [Bratt]!!!

2006-04-19 [Kaimee]: Damnit, [deeterhi] went pretty dark and blue with hers too :( Now mine isn't distinctive! xD Remind me to finish it sometime ok? xP

2006-04-19 [jsun]: :) I'm fond of the color choices Kaimee and 2 artists using the same colors are still distictive. Consider this your reminder to finish it sometime ;)

2006-04-19 [Bratt]: Thanks ever so much [BinaryPhoenix] :)

2006-04-19 [deeterhi]: your coloring style is very different than mine [Kaimee]. it's not only about the colors you choose but how you apply them.

2006-04-19 [Bratt]: Aint that the truth Deeterhi, ever seen two girls put on the same colors make up?

2006-04-20 [dayah]: hey does anyone know anyone that draws dragons...cus I am looking for some one who could draw one for me for a friend of mine..does that make sense...

2006-04-29 [beautiful _ darkness]: hope you like

2006-05-01 [beautiful _ darkness]: I was wonder if I could add my entry to my deviantart gallery

2006-05-01 [jsun]: Yes you may add it. Same goes for all of you if you wish to post your entry in your own gallery. So long as my url stays in the art, you can post it as you wish.

2006-05-02 [sedumwave]: i think me and my friend [orchidflame] r gonna lose, because a lot of the entries were done on computer, but we r doing ours with colored pencils and markers, but o well, there will be other contests. good job to everyone, to!

2006-05-02 [dayah]: never say thay, if you don't enter them you will never know..remember Jsun is the one choosing. it all depends on what he likes...isn't it such a pain to be an artist since we are all so hard on ourselves..

2006-05-02 [jsun]: There are no losers in my contest. There will be a very personal and intricate addition to my website featuring your artwork and hopefully interviews to boot. It just so happens that my favorite piece will win the artist my original drawing. I just hope it's special for whoever I choose. I know you guys pour your heart into your art and I'm prepared to highlight it every way I can. :)

2006-05-02 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: i used colour pencils.. they're cool.. good luck sedumwave i think your entry will be just as good as everyone elses in it's own special way! ^^ I wanted to watercolour it but the paper was too flimsy.. interviews.. o.O

2006-05-02 [dayah]: Yeah...again I think us artist are are worst enemys, to our selves that is...but I love this contest...YAY! oh Jsun new are up in my elfwood gallery. sadly no mod pics though..sigh..

2006-05-02 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: It's true.. artists have a certain belief that the work is never good or good enough and no-one can tell them otherwise.. ¬.¬ at least all the ones i know.. *sigh*

2006-05-02 [dayah]: its me I do it all the time

2006-05-02 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: so do i.. but then my excuse is alot of people i know ARE better than me.. honest.. i think i shall update my placeholder..

2006-05-02 [dayah]: lol...okiday..sounds good..can't wait to see it

2006-05-02 [dayah]: I think I might make the back ground better on mine..

2006-05-02 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: ^^ still unfinished but i'm spending more time on it now.. i like your backgrounds.. they have a cool watercolour effect.. (although that might just be me!)

2006-05-02 [dayah]: I really like it so far...I looks like I am still the only one to leave the one sleave short..hummm

2006-05-02 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: thankee.. yes you are.. YAY for originality and thinking outside the box ^^

2006-05-02 [dayah]: your welcome and thank you..yes...I am differnt..yay

2006-05-03 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: lol, no prob! woo different!! ... ^_^

2006-05-03 [dayah]: hehehe....

2006-05-04 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: yesh.. random laughter.. now to return this to art, what's your favorite medium?

2006-05-04 [dayah]: Me...Graphite or pencil....acrylcis when it comes to paint, but I enjoy coloring picture with photo shop..but I alway work with pencin..

2006-05-04 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: yeah, you gotta love pencil, theres alot of emotion that can be worked into a picture with pencil and for alot of the people it's the starting point for the art-work. I haven't got photoshop so i use GIMP instead which is pretty good for a free programme.. i can work on paint but it's not the easiest thing in the world ^^

2006-05-04 [Cia_mar]: MS Paint isn't easy at all... but it is neat if you have patience and

2006-05-04 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: true.. i got one piece of work i did on paint that i'm really proud of but it took far too long for what it was.. 3 hours.. *sighs* lol.. still it helps ya to learn to keep your hand steady.. ^^

2006-05-04 [Cia_mar]: the one at my house is sone on ms paint... it took i think at least 3-5 hours

2006-05-04 [dayah]: yeah. I have not patience so I could never use paint..but I love cia pictures shes done with it..fantastic..

2006-05-04 [Cia_mar]: thanks daya....*smile*

2006-05-04 [dayah]: Welcome...hehe *huggles*

2006-05-04 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: wow that is amazing i have alot of respect for you, it beats what i came up with by miles! ^^

2006-05-04 [Cia_mar]: *blushes meekly* thank you

2006-05-04 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: your welcome

2006-05-18 [Beki in Wonderland]: wow, i finally got round to putting my name on the contestants list =3 now i just need to finish my entry...

2006-05-18 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: yay! *hugs* good to see you've joined.. only problem is you kick my ass at computer colouring! XD

2006-05-18 [Beki in Wonderland]: no i don't o.O your just as good as me so stop being a twillip!! <("<) <( " )> (>")>

2006-05-18 [dayah]: I like the purple in yours that you have up as a place holder hobbit

2006-05-18 [dayah]: I wish my background wasn't so crappy

2006-05-18 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: it's not crappy.. wait till you see my background.. i'm really bad at them! and thanks *hugs* i was trying to be different! (i can't help being a twillip.. i suffer from artist syndrome!)

2006-05-18 [dayah]: lol...your welcome...can't wait to see the finished product hobbit... I might try to go back and fix my background..I still love the second one of mine, just needs a better background..:D

2006-05-18 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: ^^ cool it's always good to try out and while there's no deadline why not try and make it perfect?? ^^ hopefully mine will be finished after the holidays! ^^

2006-05-18 [dayah]: kool, Yeah I will deffinitly work on it...but still working on other pictures for other contest.sigh..need to do another one for faerys party..sigh

2006-05-19 [beautiful _ darkness]: when is the deadline

2006-05-19 [jsun]: So far there is no deadline. A few of you guys are still working on your entries right now and I'm not gonna cut it off in the middle of it. However, I do believe in fairness for those who've completed theres. Some people hate to wait. So if you guys want me to, I'll make a deadline for new entries. Then I'll allow time after that for placeholders to be finished. Trying to please here so your comments are welcome.

2006-05-19 [dayah]: ah I ain't in no hurry it doesn't matter to me...:D

2006-05-20 [Dragonartist]: well, ^^' mine is still being worked on because all the computers in my house are freking out cuz there's an internet problem, it should be fixed soon though ;P

2006-05-21 [€:DemonFire]: Very nice peice of art here. I may want to try coloring it, but I don't have much time. I, too, do mostly pencil and don't color.

2006-05-22 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: there's no harm in ahving a go though ^^ i don't mind about the deadline, i'm just pottering along so.. meh..

2006-06-12 [Remos Page]: how long have i got to get it done pls

2006-06-12 [dayah]: so far as I know there is not deadline yet...

2006-06-12 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: yup seeming as jsun hasn't posted anything more about one i would say you have as long as you want! ^^ 

2006-06-14 [jsun]: Take your time Richard, as long as people are still interested in giving it a shot, I'll keep it going awhile

2006-06-14 [BinaryPhoenix]: Kewl, I might finish my second one then.. ^_^

2006-08-08 [BinaryPhoenix]: Let it run a while longer....

2006-08-08 [Bratt]: Im ready for this one to be over as well...

2006-08-08 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: hold on please! i gotta finish mine i haven't had much PC time!! *panics*

2006-08-17 [jsun]: What I'll do is close it to new entries. From this point on till further notice, the contest is only open for current participants to finalize their work.

2006-08-18 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: phew thats good i got a few weeks in which i'll get my entry done!

2006-08-20 [tigerwitch]: so when is it totally done?

2006-08-20 [dayah]: just waiting for indigos..heheh..oh hobbit...when shall we your lovely coloring?....heheh :)

2006-08-20 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: well hopefully very soon not much left to do just a bit stuck on colours for the background. ^_^

2006-08-21 [dayah]: yeah I want to redo my background...but hmmm...don't think I will get it done..though I would very much like to do my best for this contest..sigh..dang photoshop for going bonkers on me..

2006-08-21 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: that sucks.. i wish i had photoshop though the effects are way better than GIMP

2006-08-21 [dayah]: yeah I know....gimp is oky but it likrs to freeze on I use open canvas. at least for rigt now.

2006-08-21 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: yeah gimp suits me fine because it's free and alot better than paint plus i've learnt how to navigate it and work most of the things i need to!

2006-08-21 [dayah]: canvas is kool to...almost just like photo shope, at least in the coloring not to bad though I still prefer photshop

2006-08-21 [jsun]: {In Responce to Tigerwitch} I'll let you guys know a week before I end it.
As for now, those of you who can, finish up your pieces because I'd be emotionally distraught discovering I left one of you out of the contest.

2006-08-21 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: will do! thats the que for me to stop spamming up message boards and do something productive.. perfect timing too.. i've just had my coffee hit!

2006-09-03 [jsun]: Any idea on how much time you guys need?

2006-09-04 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: uhh about a week tops.. i got the background sorted thanks to the copy of photoshop that came with the pc.. i think Juju-sensei may have pulled out because her PC is broken..

2006-09-04 [jsun]: Ok so I know I know [Kaimee]is out, and maybe [Beki in Wonderland] as you say. But you others ( [Ocean Soul] [sedumwave] [orchidflame] [Artemis Riddle] [derp] [Dragonartist] & [hanhepi] ) are you guys out too or you got nearly finished pieces?

2006-10-11 [jsun]: Nice work Cia_mar  -  It's ok to have your sig on the art but you've nearly covered my sig and website address on the two versions that have the frame. I like the colors alot on the black framed one but yeah... it sorta landed in the wrong place.

2006-10-11 [Cia_mar]: i can fix that... sorry bout that!

2006-10-11 [Cia_mar]: ok fixed it as best i could on the black one... the white one though i felt could be seen well enough so i left it... and i think i will work on making my sig less too... but other than that i think i am don for now!

2007-03-02 [jsun]: Hi guys, it's time to wrap this one up. I was gone for quite awhile (still am really). This contest has been running for awhile now and I've really enjoyed all the entries. Some of you guys have helped me see "Mirra" from several good perspectives.
Well, as I mentioned in the beginning, the winner gets the original artwork. I'll contact the winner and ask for a postal address to mail it to. As for the rest of the lovely artwork, it's definately going on my website. The same website that is gonna get a major overhaul and an update. This means that it could be sometime yet before you see your work on there, but hey... it's gonna happen.

Now, I'd like to mention some pieces that I really enjoyed but didn't happen to win my top spot.

I really like the flowing green ghost effect camouflage of Cia_mar's paintings.
Elysiann did a superb job of a more cartoon style Mirra in which the colors where beautiful.
Silver Seraph, the sunset sky on your first painting is AWESOME... I just love it to death.
Bratt has the total liquid color effect that I see in some of my favorite comic books down to a science. I really do like how you've pulled it off and your color scheme was a plus too.
dayahnaira, although not at all what I had expected, the purple-brown hair in your 2nd piece is beautiful. It was a pleasure to see it.

And the top spot goes to the artist who I feel portrayed Mirra just as she is in my world. It's not just a lovely painting of my artwork... it really brings Mirra to Life and that's why I choose Deeterhi's painting as the winner of the contest.

Thank you all for participating. It has been a blast and I hope you all enjoyed it as well. I apologize for the wait and suspence but the bright side of it all is that we were able to see more art. I'll return and announce the posting of your work on my website once I've updated. Happy painting to you all!

2007-03-02 [Cia_mar]: Congrats to you Deeterhi!!! Yours was my pic too! glad you won!

Jsun, thank you for the wonderful compliment and the great oppertunity to try my hand at this... it was all a learning process for me...
thanks again!

2007-03-02 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: Gratz to Deeterhi! Your picture was awesome!
Although i don't envy Jsun, having to pick the winner must have been tricky!

2007-03-02 [Remos Page]: nice to see you back jsun

2007-03-02 [Elisha Kelly]: applauds [deeterhi]

2007-03-03 [BinaryPhoenix]: Congratulations deeterhi!!! Personally, I think all the entries were winners! ^_^

2007-03-03 [deeterhi]: thanks guys :)
props must go to jsun though for creating the beautiful pencil illustration to begin with

2007-08-23 [jsun]: I've finally gotten around to updating my website. This contest has also been featured and published along with all you guys' beautiful entries. Here's a link to it

Also, if any of you are bored and just feel like painting, feel free to try your hand at any of my artwork. I'd be happy to feature it on my website too.

2007-08-24 [BinaryPhoenix]: Should we upload them here, or send them to you in a pm?

2007-08-24 [jsun]: a pm is fine or by email :D I'd probably get it first by email

2007-08-24 [BinaryPhoenix]: cool!
