1. Name: [CelticDragon]
My drow ranger character in D&D, Arianna Nailo.
<img300*0:http://www.elftown.com/img/drawing/19725_1129087937.jpg>



2. [CelticDragon]
And an 8-bit version of Ari with her animal companion, Bolta. (Uber-campaign, Bolta's a half-electric elemental light warhorse of the DM's creation.) As for the catch-phrase, she got eaten three times in one battle by a fiendish dire shark. -_-* She did kill it after that third time, though.
<img300*0:http://www.elftown.com/img/drawing/19725_1129088971.jpg>



3. [Zardra]
my drow wizard Xir'ag =)
<img300*0:stuff/Drow_Wizard.jpg>



4. [moira hawthorne] 'Double Vision'
Dubhezi my evil insane drider... driders are drow... after they been cursed by Lloth the Spider Queen, seen as a drow or drider would see him in the lightless world of underdark and how we would see him.
<img700*0:stuff/double%20vision%20Dudhezi%20w%20halbert%20.jpg>
Im intrigued by the whole idea that drow view their world not as light refaction but as heat... they see in the ultra violet - so tho drow have dark skin and white hair... thats how we would see them in a light source... they would see the reverse! the face hands body would be lit up in reds to whites... and clothing hair and such would be dark... please right click twice to see larger...



5. [moira hawthorne] 'Dumoas and Chath'
cute cubbey drider babies twins! sitting in their web!!! Very rare considering normally driders arent born... they are created from adult DROW elfs... as a curse - a punishment of the Drow Goddess Lloth. These are Dubhezi's and his mate V/Queen Bitch's sons. She is a red head deamon with wings.. therefore the twins peculiarities. (wings and Chath's red hair)
<img300*0:http://www.elftown.com/img/photo/49339_1124829244.jpg>
(nudity BUT this isnt shota... b/c they are just baby twins hugging each other)


6. [Metalelf] '..:in a dark place:..'
My drow Veldrin, somewhere in the underdark. I had fun designing this costume for him...mmmm...frilly...
<img300*0:http://www.elftown.com/img/drawing/5607_1130069706.jpg>


7. [Metalelf] 'Onstage'
Veldrin again...in rockstar mode. *drools*
<img300*0:http://www.elftown.com/img/drawing/5607_1130348597.jpg>


8. [Zardra]Zail and Welvarin. Zail is a silver drow, meaning that he has mixed blood, not a full drow but not any other race either... uh oh, hard to explain, he was born from a spirit... so he is a drow. ^^;
I hope this is ok. They are very cuddly. ^_^
<img300*0:stuff/Silver_drows.jpg>


9. [stuffAEAmade] I'll go ahead and stick up what I have so far of it, I suppose. :)
Oni, my dark elf battle-mage. Short and scrawny even for an elf, but is a magickal powerhouse, especially with fire.
<img300*0:img/drawing/22011_1130620878.jpg>


10. [Kyrinn] Ive had this one done for a long time, and finally a place to display it. Its [Yuriona]'s Reinard with my character the Princess Myra. Two fine examples of dark elves in my opinion, and a handsome couple. ^__^
<img300*0:stuff/drowcontest1.jpg>
I may have to find my other version of this one, its too dark..


11. [Yuriona] Lookie! I drew Veldrin too! He will be clothed eventually. LOOKIE! HE'S NEKKID!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAA!! And now in colour!! OOOooooOOOooOOOooooOOoooooo....

<img300*0:stuff/veldrinfc.jpg>



12.[Jitter] Drizzt and Zaknafein Do 'Urden ^_^ *the love*
<img300*0:stuff/jitterDrizzt%26zak.jpg>



13. [Amerthyst]Ren`ai. ^-^

<img300*0:http://www.elftown.com/img/drawing/12160_1134087975.jpg>


15. [Linn Scarlett] :..: Meldor Istorra Idrill :..:
Warning! Big bad drow-overlord!
He's the monarch of my patriarchal(!) Drow city Gor-gornoth
and he's a big bad royal pain in the ass, as all drow overlords and -ladies should be!
(PS: Bad scan & Unfinished, will fix both a.s.a.p)
EDIT: did some shading and coloring, still not finished though
EDIT: finally finished!
<img300*0:stuff/Meldor4.jpg>


15. [Linn Scarlett] :...: Linnerial Morriganna Baerne-Idrill :...:
Jup, it's Linn ^_^
Isn't she adorable like this? *chuckles mischiviously*
Yes she's the queen of 'all' Argyll(ion),
which would be Meldor's territory.
<img300*0:stuff/Linnerial3.JPG>

(PS: details got killed, click my drawings to view a larger vision)


16. [eyes of frost] This is my frist entry. She is a drow...but a faye in something else lol. She is my character called, Ishera. Hope you like!
<img300*0:stuff/Ishira.jpg>


17. [Leara] The only drow I currently have. XP
<img300*0:http://www.elftown.com/img/drawing/2706_1122232878.jpg>


18. [Kyrinn] Changed my entry. This is Princess Myra before she met Rei. She is not quite finished but she is done enough to enter her. ^^
<img300*0:stuff/MyraColor.png>


19. [Falx] My picture of Shandor Don'Ishla from Dark Elf Story. Notice anything peculiar about his eyes? He gets that from his daddy. I'm not saying any more about it. It might ruin the story. ^_^
<img300*0:http://www.elftown.com/stuff/Shandy.jpg>


20. [Falx] Leoch'shin Aerth'Tan, Archmage of Darshez Nagaeron, Head honcho of the Aerth'Tan Mage Academy. I love his pretty green eyes. This picture was heavily influenced by the works of CLAMP, particularly Card Captor Sakura.
<img300*0:http://www.elftown.com/stuff/Leoch%27shin.jpg>


21. [Forever Equine] My half drow/barbarian character and alter ego, Elvandia.
<img300*0:http://www.elftown.com/img/photo/35723_1136188389.jpg>


22. [Forever Equine] A drow priestess inviting you into her bed chamber.

<img:stuff/1135792751_postershot.JPG>


26. [Yuriona] Another work in progress but a well known one by now. My dark elf warrior mage Reinard Latchoktve. Maybe now I'll get the inspiriation to finish him! *crosses fingers*
**UPDATE::** Just redid the tattoo on his arm and may reshade him. Wheee!

<img300*0:stuff/reiupdate4.jpg>


27. [Encaitaro N'ezzrith] My gay Drow Rocker, Encaitaro, otherwise known as Jamesie. This was the first proper attempt at digital art I did and he came out okay. I hope. (I'm new to ET, i dont know how to link it to bigger versions like everyone else!)
<img:stuff/Gay_drow_rocker.jpg>



28. [Quellealcar] This is Jadrien. I don't really have much of a story for him, but here he is.
<img300*0:stuff/Jadrien.jpg>



29. [Kachichan] I keep meaning to do the background... then I keep sighing and pretending I didn't just think that. I will do it one day...
<img300*0:stuff/drow_priestess_CG3-500.jpg>

2006-02-17 [Forever Equine]: *squirms away from Kyrinn* Save my dignity woman! Lol!

2006-02-17 [Kyrinn]: hee hee.. Ohhh okay, if you insist. ^__^

2006-02-17 [Linn Scarlett]: *huddles in corner looking at the others* oh dear

2006-02-18 [Metalelf]: Oh. Okay then..."YES! NEKKID SHADING!! XD"...better? :D

2006-02-18 [Yuriona]: Much. ^_^

2006-02-22 [Encaitaro N'ezzrith]: Did someone say nekkid and Veldrin...*shifty eyes*

2006-02-22 [Yuriona]: Yesh! ^_^

2006-02-22 [Metalelf]: Heh heh...yes indeed...

2006-03-04 [moira hawthorne]: [Kachichan] I cant see yours... is anyone having this problem?

2006-03-04 [Yuriona]: I can see it all right. Very nice [Kachichan]! Though if others have trouble seeing it, you might think about uploading your entry directly to Elftown. ^^

2006-03-04 [moira hawthorne]: ooh it edit this page I can see it.. as code.. from photobucket.. but there isnt even a broken link visible...

2006-03-04 [moira hawthorne]: also cant see 16 and 25

2006-03-04 [Yuriona]: Strange... could be your web browser. They're all showing up fine for me and I use Internet Explorer.

2006-03-04 [Yuriona]: You could try copying and pasting the link into a new browser window. Sometimes that works.

2006-03-04 [Linn Scarlett]: I use mozilla and as always: it works fine :P

2006-03-05 [Metalelf]: OOoo...I love the shading on your picture [Kachichan]!

2006-03-05 [moira hawthorne]: it be nice if I could see it

2006-03-05 [Kachichan]: Thankyou [Yuriona] and [Metalelf]! :o And... I'm not sure why you can't see it, moira. o.O Which browser do you use?

2006-03-05 [Falx]: Is it all right if I do some shameless self-promotion over here?

2006-03-05 [moira hawthorne]: mozilla firefox... but after 3 days of complaining to my techy ..he finally found the broken link in my computer that wasnt allowing me to see photobucket images... ... so now I can!... yours is lovely! you really should do the back ground.. I can imagine a golden glow on her from the candles!

2006-03-05 [Linn Scarlett]: and what if we say no? Falx? :P of course you can :p

2006-03-05 [Kachichan]: Thanks, moira. :o You have it pegged right, actually. Once I'd got the background all shiny, I was gonna give her a bright glow to the edges. But... that background is a PAIN! ;_; yeah, I'm a wuss. :( I'll get it done one day, I swear... but the most so far was done to make it a pretty icon. :/

2006-03-06 [moira hawthorne]: *feeds cooffee and cookiees ..in the hope you will colour her b/g*

2006-03-06 [Metalelf]: Ooh...I was wondering if you guys could vote in my poll about my most recent picture (up in my house) - I'm interested in hearing what you guys think about it.

2006-03-07 [Falx]: Well, if you said no, then I just wouldn't put up that I'd really like it if some more people could go over and read Dark Elf Story and leave some comments. But since I have permission and all....

2006-03-14 [akhirah]: ok, comp finished! any-one want to change/edit their entry before i put up the poll?

2006-03-14 [Yuriona]: I'd love to finish both of mine first but that could take YEARS to happen so I'm gonna say go ahead. ;)

2006-03-14 [Kyrinn]: Alas I wont finish coloring my first one and I rather like the unfinished effect of the portrait. Ill have more for another contest later on though. :D

2006-03-14 [Linn Scarlett]: oh dear *chuckles*

2006-03-14 [Jitter]: Yay we reached the deadline!

2006-03-14 [Metalelf]: Whoop! *bounces*

2006-03-14 [DeadSockMonster]: I dun wanna edit my entry, but thanks anyways akhirah. Metalelf, I agree - Whoop!!!!

2006-03-16 [Amerthyst]: I -Love- some of the entries ^^

2006-03-20 [DeadSockMonster]: Yeah, there are some really good ones up here. Can't wait to vote on them ^_^

2006-03-21 [akhirah]: think i will have this up for a week =D and make some kinda groovy badge for the winners or something >.>

2006-03-21 [Metalelf]: I still can't decide who to vote for *tears out hair* Wagh...

2006-03-21 [Elisha Kelly]: My god It was hard to choose! I finally went with Linn... :D

2006-03-22 [Cia_mar]: [Linn Scarlett] "the queen of all argyl" i know that song.. ihave it on tape...lol

2006-03-22 [akhirah]: you cant vote for yourself [Falx] and [Quellealcar] O_o

2006-03-22 [Quellealcar]: sorry, i didn't know.

2006-03-22 [akhirah]: tis ok ^_^

2006-03-22 [Falx]: Sorry

2006-03-23 [Savien]: What a tough choice......I really like [Linn Scarlett] :..: Meldor Istorra Idrill, but Yuri's Reinard has to get my vote. i know the work that went into it, and the lighting effects are flawless. Great work Yuri!! :)

2006-03-23 [Savien]: ....and how did I not know about this? *scowls at Yuriona*  :P

2006-03-23 [Yuriona]: *shrugs and grins sheepishly* Beats me. Maybe you should hang around more. *poke*

2006-03-23 [Savien]: I know....*hangs head*  Hey, i'm back in with both feet now. I'm into a contest, running a contest, working on 5 drawings, and looking for a place to step back into crew duties, so look out!! LOL!!

2006-03-23 [Yuriona]: Awwww... thanks for the compliment ya big lug. *HUGS* I had a tough choice choosing too. I really liked [Metalelf]'s 'in a dark place' and Linn's Meldor but I had to vote for [Kyrinn]'s since I know the story behind that one as well as the work that went into it. Plus she did a good job capturing the older, more experienced Rei. ^^

2006-03-23 [Savien]: Yeah, i liked Kyrinn's, and danalay's really well too. Like i said, tough choice. o.O

2006-03-23 [Yuriona]: Definitely.

2006-03-23 [Kyrinn]: awwww thanks Yuri. *hugs* I captured the older Rei good eh?? Wheee!!

2006-03-23 [Yuriona]: Yup ya did so! ^_^

2006-03-23 [Estantia]: erm *cough* the bit at the bottom with the pics? both of linn's are numbered 15... which confuses poll numbering...

2006-03-23 [akhirah]: no, i numbered it properly on the poll =P which is why there is 31 choices.

2006-03-25 [akhirah]: so, while the poll is still in voting i'd like to bring a drow debate into light, if people dont mind and dont argue/fall out over it either?

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: I dont really mind...

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: which debate Akhir?

2006-03-25 [akhirah]: weeeell....glancing through a few diaries, the debate about drows being gay?

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: Ahh that. Well I think it is *highly* unlikely for one: Drow are matriarchal -> Lloth hates men -> would hate gays even more (disgrace to the superiority of the female breeding!) -> all gays die on sight. Hidden gays would be maybe possible. but they would have to be *very* *very* carefull. Makes me wonder... gay-bounty-hunters?

2006-03-25 [akhirah]: curious to what sparked the diaries..

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: Well, it's just one of the things that has been annoying me for years *shrugs* It's just too unlikely and I havent heard one good explanation for it

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: The only place where it is slightly more likely is in a patriarchal city, such as gorgornoth. But Gor-gornoth hails the warrior god Thraud. Gays aren't warriors, that's just not in their nature (as being more feminine) so I think they would still be kinda killed on sight (by the way, i have *nothing* against gay men O.O)

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: Not really a debate, but an observation, akhirah... My husband has a house in here now, and he came to look, here and other places, and was bothered by the high amount of gay drow artwork. I dont want to start a huuuuuge knock out drag out fight over this but it bugs me too. Drow are NOT gay! If they are, they DONT live in the underdark and are hunted. It would be considered an abomination and they would be KILLED on sight

2006-03-25 [akhirah]: lol yeh good points. But when i roleplay or write stories about drows, i base them around chimps/bonobo's in a way. Chimps for their aggressive, territorial and killing nature and bonobo's for their peaceful, women ruling and casual sex which stops them from killing each other. If ya get what i mean? ^_^;;

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: Plus after wandering about, viewing art in various places, all with a headache and a bad temper brewing, I just exploded.

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: Yeah i do. Taken all points I think they would be most likely to be in Eilistraeean settlements on the surface *shudders* (and still be killed on sight: because they're gay AND eilistraee worshipers :p)

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: I just don't get it: is being gay the new fashion or something? I mean grow up O.O' it's getting as chewed out and bored as the second world war in history classes X_X

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: hee hee, chimps! *giggles* I know what you mean. Ive read sooo much about Drow in prep for a game session I want to be in. ^^

2006-03-25 [akhirah]: lol!! i agree, gay/japanese art seems to be taking over. Im not against it and im not for it. But i agree with both of you, they would be killed on sight due to it insulting the females.

2006-03-25 [akhirah]: the thing is, ive never picked up a drizzt book or anything, the fact that it never interested me at all. So what i know about drows, is from what ive read from others stories and made it up myself. I dont like basing my characters from some-one elses rules, that would be boring. XD

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: Exactly my point. And as none matriarchal cities are likely to be superb patriarchal (as revenge) they still would get killed: being gay isnt very manly X_X

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: *shrugs* like i said Akhir, the japanese/gay art was cool until *everybody* started drawing it: wether they can or can't.

2006-03-25 [Zardra]: I have to take part in this since my other entry is just that, gay love... so, I believe that drow men inside drow houses have to be very careful if they do are gay, if they are discovered, they will be killed. But: Bregan Daerthe is ruled by men, Jarlaxle... come on, he's gay! all those rainbow coloured clothes and such... obvious. That also gives a huge advantage and power to Bregan Daerthe over the big houses, since the Matrons cannot use Jarlaxle, they have no affect on him. But I do agree that being gay inside a drow house, is like a death centence if they are not careful... then again, drows very rarely show it anyways if they do love someone because that would be used against them.

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: *nodd* *nodd* well, Meldor is very vain, he takes much care concerning clothes and style, but he's not gay either? Jarlaxle is an important person, as is Meldor: they have to get out and look good and important! So I don't think the clothes thing is a waterproof rule pro-gay. You do have a point about him not being affacted by the matrons *ponders* though he *does* gets his ass kicked by Drizz' sis

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: Maybe he's just generally unwanting? *snickers evily*

2006-03-25 [akhirah]: like i said, drows are like monkeys, they dont show love, but casual sex keeps the peace. Well, i believe that drows dont know love or anything associated with it. O_o

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: I think that concept was lost with many others during their fall from grace (god i sound like my biblical teacher)

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: Not about your entry in particular, Danayala, just the high amount of art found on the web. I dont have a problem with the homosexual lifestyle, I mean, its thier choice and Im not going to tell them how to live. I just get tired of seeing the high amounts of gay drow (and not just yours, Danayala) and its just a tad bothersome. Though that is a good explanation for it, Ill agree... ^^

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: but taking in all percentages: the low level of men (daugters preffered!) and the low level of gay amongst men (gays are a normal-rare :p) the chance is estimated *ponders* about 1 on 15 :) (the level of gay men is estimated 7 on 15 for us)

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: Meldor is his own vicious animal, Linn. *pokes*

2006-03-25 [Zardra]: I've just seen Jaralaxle as gay from the first time I read the books. He is the ruler of all those men, all respect and trust him completely, of course it doesnt proof anything, but it doesnt close it out either ^_^ About Drizzt being gay, since its been talked too, I think its pretty clear that he's not. About drow men in general, a way for them to have an equal relationship, would be to have a male lover, of course in secrecy, but thats the way almost everything works in the drow society anyways

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: which would be *ponders* 1 500 000/15 = 100 000 gays in gor-gornoth O.O' ghehe

2006-03-25 [Jitter]: Concerning Danayala's art I am too busy drooling with her art to notice the gay drow :p

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: hmm you have a point with the relation, though i stil lthink they'd try to get dominant on eachother (its just the nature of drow 'love' ) so... *pokes kyrinn back* yeah, drizz was so into the lady from silverymoon and then a little with cattie and ALL THOSE OTHER women :P

2006-03-25 [Zardra]: and yeah, there's been a lot of art showing gay drow... no idea why now... maybe its y!gallerys fault, since they have a drow club that is very popular? :-S

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: I think the Drow got reinvented (somehow) from twillight race to UBERS COEWLZ as some stupid twit told me once *shakes head* poor us devoted drow fans

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: hee heee... could be Dana... My husband has no real problem with homosexuals, so long as he doesnt have to see htem cuddling. It makes him squirmy. *giggles*

2006-03-25 [Zardra]: hmm, that might be :-S ... oh, one reason drow are often described as gay might also be because they are very "beautiful", small and slender, feminine, especially the men, since they are smaller than the women in general. and yeah, I think that the men would try to dominate each other in gay relationships too, propably, but it would still be more of a contest than to try to dominate a woman, hehe ^_^

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: *ponders* I think the whole gay/japanese thing is mightily over used, scewed out and re-eaten X_X

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: It is the nature of Drow to dominate.. Probably they do get dominate over each other too, its the only time they CAN be the dominate ones, lol..

2006-03-25 [Zardra]: teehee, my boyfriend is a bit bored of me drawing males only, but he's not squirmy anymore, lol ^^; ... and yeah, the gay/japanese thing is becoming such a hit that its getting really irritating with all the little squealing fangirls ^^; (not that I wouldnt be quilty of drawing yaoi, but at least I started before the big yaoi-rush, lol ^^; =P)

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: Hmm guilty as charged ;) *chuckles* Meh, I usually draw men and sometimes gals :) I have nothing with gays and gays have nothing with me (though my best friends suddenly turned gay this summer O.o' ) and all the people suddenly claiming that they are bisexual... i was like: sjesus! find something *new* X_X it gets on my nerves after a while.

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: Zeph helps me often with my art, there for I try to draw my (rare) female characters aswell. As they might get annoyed over the constant maleness roaming around your desk. Especially if it's about gays, I can understand that they (bfs) get somehow offended or something O.O' ok time for chocolate X_X

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: I second that, Linn... All of a sudden bisexuals are popping out of the wood work!! >.> Old news... Ive a couple of gay characters, but I dont draw them that often, and when I do draw them, its not yaoi in nature. Ive no gay drow, though, lol..

2006-03-25 [Zardra]: I really should draw more of my female characters, but I'm just fashinated with the male body and can't stop drawing them ^^; ... and since the main characters in my story are gay, I do draw them a lot =P  ... the flood of bisexuality is a bit strange, yeah :-S

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: I usually get the idea to say something like "yeah sure you are bi, stop trying to be 'cool' >_<" oh well... *shrugs* I've no gay drow either Kyrinn, I find it too unlikely. Though Zammzt might be bisexual (in his own perverted way -> sadist)

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: Im getting better at my male anatomy, I just hate to work on a fine torso and then have to cover it up, lol.. The one in my house is the only one Ive put a shirt on in the last four drawings of guys, lol... and I think the bi thing is for attention, because its supposed to be SHOCKING.. but its just ho-hum anymore...

2006-03-25 [Zardra]: thats the same reason almost all my males are naked from the waist up, lol. just can't cover them up ^^; ... aah, your Shyl is always so gorgeous! ^_^

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: *chuckles* barbarians FTW :)

2006-03-25 [akhirah]: its why i give my men spandex...it looks like their wearing nothing at all! *simpson quote*

2006-03-25 [Metalelf]: Heh...I think shirts are a foreign concept to my lil Veldrin :P

2006-03-25 [Zardra]: spandex are a wonderful invention! =D ... and shirts are evil =P

2006-03-25 [Metalelf]: Ah yes. And Veldrin is a drow rock star...so he spends most of his life wearing spandex pants and no shirt...and posing with his guitar XD

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: *shudders* i just had the nastiest mental image of Meldor EVER X_X hush you all talking about naked drow :p

2006-03-25 [Metalelf]: Nasty mental image? LONG LIVE SPANDEX TROUSERS!

2006-03-25 [akhirah]: yes!! *hails with metalelf*

2006-03-25 [Metalelf]: Indeed *headbangs* Loooove the spandex...BTW, have you seen my new picture 'DROW METAL'?

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: Yeah we saw.. i think *ponders* *tries to get rid of the mental image of meldor* X_X

2006-03-25 [Metalelf]: Heehee...dare I enquire as to what this mental image was?

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: Meldor without clothes O.O'

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: Awww thanks Dana! *hugs* I hate to cover up the chest, but with Shyl its a requirement. He just isnt the type to go shirtless. Getting his shirts torn off is a whole other thing. ;D

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: Ewwwwww spandex.. that only looks good on the right body type.. Hugs all the right(or in some cases wrong) spots, lol..

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: same with Meldor X_X he's like the big bad guy in my story X_X don't want to see him with less than all his clothing on

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: Hey Linn, how does Meldor in a pink fluffy tutu sound?

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: like 'painfull and slow death by the hands of zammzt' for you

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: *giggles* Its in Shyl's character to be fully clothed. Part of that control he has of how other ppl see him. When yer naked, its hard to control that, lol

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: exactly meldor's point X_X though he is a bitt of a twit on that part of his nature. He's the kind that can stand and stare in the mirror for houres trying to get his hair curl the right way

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: *laughs* I cant see Shyl primping in front of a mirror unless his wife made him, lol

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: Meldor doesnt have a wife to make him primp infront of the mirror *chuckles* the only thing linnerial causes him are gray hairs. which is not that bad, since they are already white ;)

2006-03-25 [Linn Scarlett]: Meldor just finds himself the best there is, much like Jarlaxle and pretty much any drow i suppose. And he just wants to show off, running around with a half plate adamentine armor at councils *waves finger around head* the guy is nuts :P

2006-03-25 [Kyrinn]: EEK. O.o Shyl wouldnt do that... 'course, SHyl aint nuts either. :P

2006-03-25 [Falx]: So, just a curiosity question, but why can't we vote for ourselves?

2006-03-25 [moira hawthorne]: b/c you already did by sumbitting you art... and if everyone voted for themselves it would just cancel out one vote off the total number of all the votes.... and there arnt enough other people coming in to contests to vote besides the artists themselves.. and its very tacky! an immature and frowned apon by nearly everyone...

2006-03-25 [akhirah]: nicely explained moira XD

2006-03-25 [Kachichan]: *applauds moira for explaining it better than anyone she's seen before*

2006-03-26 [Linn Scarlett]: *shrugs* it's something called 'common sense' very few people posses it these days.

2006-03-26 [akhirah]: haha yeah, i thought it was obvious why O_o

2006-03-26 [moira hawthorne]: plus... as artists you should respect the efforts and skill of your peers.. and applaude their success... if you cant find one other peice besides your own that you find worthy of a vote.. than maybe you need to examine the reason why within yourself.

2006-03-26 [Linn Scarlett]: Oh I could question lots of people concerning honour, common sense and skill Akhir, but still, I love your contests :)

2006-03-26 [Kyrinn]: *giggles*

2006-03-26 [Linn Scarlett]: *pats Kyrinn* idiot :P

2006-03-26 [akhirah]: daylight savings for meee..

2006-03-26 [Metalelf]: Ahhh...daylight savings...means I got one hour less in bed than usual *cries* me sleepy!

2006-03-26 [Linn Scarlett]: I hate daylight savings X_X 1 houre less to learn my math exam for tomorrow

2006-03-26 [Metalelf]: Yeah...damn all this lost time...good luck in the exam BTW.

2006-03-26 [Kyrinn]: it was daylight savings??

2006-03-26 [Linn Scarlett]: yeah it was X_X i ran short of an hours

2006-03-26 [Yuriona]: It isn't daylight savings here in North America until next weekend. :P

2006-03-31 [Crazy Crazy Cat]: this saturday night

2006-04-03 [Jitter]: Yeah I just saw how this is going! Go Dana! :D

2006-04-03 [Kyrinn]: daylight savings kicks me in the ass everytime! XP Why do we even NEED daylight savings?

2006-04-03 [Linn Scarlett]: because otherwise we would be starting to live in other time periods then the rest of the world O.O

2006-04-03 [moira hawthorne]: b/c during the industrial revelotion, factorys ran according to the sun

2006-04-03 [Kyrinn]: In Alaska, daylight savings is kinda pointless. 23 hours of light in the summer, and 23 hours of dark in the winter.. We just go by seasons: Winter and Construction, lol

2006-04-04 [Paul Doyle]: Too much information for those with too much time: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time "Secluded in the heart of northwestern Ontario, Pickle Lake and New Osnaburgh have no use for daylight saving time" And so on :P

2006-04-26 [akhirah]: i'll make a badge for the winner [Zardra] and does any-one want another drow contest but with a set theme?

2006-04-26 [Linn Scarlett]: yes we do :p OF COURSE WE DO

2006-04-26 [Metalelf]: Okie dokie :D

2006-04-26 [moira hawthorne]: themed drow... oooh ok... =D

2006-04-26 [Metalelf]: Hehe...I suck at set themes but what the hell, I'm up for it :D

2006-04-26 [Linn Scarlett]: yeah same here :p

2006-04-26 [Metalelf]: It's cuz my characters are all such eccentric cases, I have trouble getting them to fit into a picture with a set theme.

2006-04-26 [Linn Scarlett]: i know exactly what you mean, trust me >_<

2006-04-26 [Linn Scarlett]: maybe some nice evil torture stuff? then i can finally draw zammzt :D or even demzer himself

2006-04-26 [Metalelf]: I did a picture along those lines for a contest not long ago...I drew the scene where Tsafein got kidnapped.

2006-04-26 [Linn Scarlett]: id just draw either zammzt or demzer, torture enough X_X

2006-04-26 [akhirah]: awesome! glad people are enthusiastic about it! =D

2006-04-27 [DeadSockMonster]: Of course, we'd like another drow contest...Set theme? You could suggest a few themes, and let people pick. But give them a choice to do something unthemed.

2006-04-27 [akhirah]: well i wanted people to come up with a new picture for the contest, instead of just taking a drow they already drew and stick it in, if you get me. and make it fun too =D

2006-04-27 [Linn Scarlett]: ahh easy :P i need to create a few for my story anyway :p

2006-04-27 [Yuriona]: YES! I like that idea Akhirah! Set a theme and have people draw new stuff specifically for the contest! Wheeee!!

2006-04-27 [Kyrinn]: I likethat too! ^^

2006-04-27 [Zardra]: *dances* whee!! =D =D =D ...heee, I love that themed idea too, it will be more challenging ^_^

2006-04-27 [Yuriona]: ... uh... yeah...

2006-04-27 [Metalelf]: Oo, an opportunity to create some new characters? Yayness.

2006-04-27 [moira hawthorne]: or new drawings of well loved charys.. as long as it fits the theme...

2006-04-27 [Linn Scarlett]: noooo new chars new chars!

2006-04-27 [moira hawthorne]: I dont invent charys for contests... contests are fun but they arent a pupose to a character...

2006-04-27 [Kyrinn]: I like the idea of drawing new characters works (whether it be characters we already have and have not displayed or ones drawn just for a contest) just becuase I think its a good idea. A bit of variety never hurt anyone, now did it?

2006-04-27 [Linn Scarlett]: Indeed, the reappearance of the same char a kazillion time gets boring >_<

2006-04-27 [Linn Scarlett]: so i think i will all poke your eyes out with some outragious picture of zammzt ---and when i say outragious i mean really outragious :P and no he will not be wearing anything pink or tutu like -_-'

2006-04-27 [Kyrinn]: Awwww no tutu?? *tears* Id love to see that! ~.^

2006-04-27 [Linn Scarlett]: ...i think that would be the last thing you'd ever see, if you saw him like that ;)

2006-04-27 [Kyrinn]: ROFL! It might be worth the laughter..

2006-04-27 [Metalelf]: Ahh...in my story, poor lil Adrotha ended up getting put in drag. He was not happy about the fact.

2006-04-27 [Kyrinn]: I dont blame him! I think if SHyl ever got forced into drag there would be hell to pay for the ones who forced him, lol

2006-04-27 [Linn Scarlett]: why do i get this very bad mental image of meldor in drag O.O'

2006-04-27 [Metalelf]: Cuz we were all talking about drow in drag...hehe...at least Adrotha did get to stab someone with a hair pin XD His friends teased him mercilessly for weeks afterwards though.

2006-04-27 [Kyrinn]: Yuri's Rei wears hair pins and he doesnt need to be in drag for that. I just cant see him in drag. ACK! Dont do a Drow in Drag contest!! anything byt that!!

2006-04-27 [Linn Scarlett]: indeed so >_< that would be horrible, even for flooriz ---and he's wacko

2006-04-27 [Metalelf]: Adrotha had to wear hairpins to hold his wig on...he has quite distinctive hair, and he needed to hide it to pretend to be someone else.

2006-04-27 [Kyrinn]: Ahhh distinctive hair huh? I see. Its always fun when you get to do death by hairpin.

2006-04-27 [Metalelf]: Yes...death by hairpin indeed...I believe there was some kind of toxic substance on the hairpin. And yes...Adrotha's hair is green.

2006-04-27 [Yuriona]: Well, Rei's hair pins are like 8" long and steel. He has a LOT of hair. ^^ Rei in drag wouldn't work at all. That would be like putting poor Veldrin in drag. Its just not right!

2006-04-27 [Metalelf]: Yeah. I think if anyone tried to put Veldrin in drag, he would probably knock them unconscious or something.

2006-04-27 [Linn Scarlett]: hmm *wonders if she has a char with hairpins* ahh luse has :)

2006-04-27 [Metalelf]: Hehe...actually, I have some hairpins like Rei's...from the days when I used to have long hair...so long ago...

2006-04-27 [Yuriona]: Ooooo.. cool. I've never used hair pins like thouse since my hair is so thick it breaks most of them. ^^

2006-04-27 [Kyrinn]: Ooooo... Ive found old OLD sketches I did a million years ago of Shyl with his hair up. *ponders* Wonder what hE wouldl look like with hair pins.... *braincells working*

2006-04-27 [Linn Scarlett]: ahhh scan it :D want to see

2006-04-27 [Kyrinn]: Its soooo old...

2006-04-27 [Linn Scarlett]: exactly :D ill upload an old drawing of wulf's behind ^_^

2006-04-27 [Kyrinn]: there isnt a whole lot to it but it has potential. I just cant see Shyl with hair pins..

2006-04-27 [Linn Scarlett]: hmmm

2007-02-27 [kittykittykitty]: A winner?
