2005-10-21 [Leara]: Does it matter if it was....like...
2005-10-21 [DarkJenni]: I was wondering the same thing, but did something differant...
2005-10-21 [stuffAEAmade]: Hrm, I think I'll do a remake of what I did last year. >:]
2005-10-21 [Leara]: I don't have a scanner, so yeah...and school takes a lot of time..and its midterm time. >.>
2005-10-21 [stuffAEAmade]: I beleive it... I'll be (hopefully) at an art school this time next year.
2005-10-21 [stuffAEAmade]: As soon as I can come up with US$120,000 to cover the tuition, I'll consider myself lucky. U.U;
2005-10-21 [Leara]: I'm in an art program, but because I have to upgrade english, they only let me in one art course, the 2D Art and Design, next semester I get 3D, and Art History....and it better not be shitty art history either...I want stuff like Devinchi, and Michaelangelo.
2005-10-21 [Leara]: *dies* What school do you plan on going to that costs that much??? :O Even the best animation school in Canada only costs $50,000, which I thought was farrrr to much money...(it's not where I am now though. >.>)
2005-10-21 [stuffAEAmade]: I want to study Comic art, and there aren't many places that offer it. >.< Minneapolis College of art and Design, MCAD
2005-10-21 [DarkJenni]: ^_^
2005-10-21 [Leara]: My god....thats a rediculous tuiton....does it count living expenses?
2005-10-21 [stuffAEAmade]: Yes, thank goodness
2005-10-21 [Leara]: It's still a rediculous price...O.O
2005-10-21 [stuffAEAmade]: College in the US costs a ton of money.
2005-10-21 [evilclownofdeath]: how do i put a pic up
2005-10-21 [Leara]: No kidding. >.>
2005-10-21 [stuffAEAmade]: put the full url between <*img:> tag
2005-10-21 [evilclownofdeath]: that didnt work
2005-10-21 [bluefarie]: no star/asteris..
2005-10-21 [moira hawthorne]: it just plain doesnt work...
2005-10-21 [nokaredes]: ...fixed ;)
2005-10-21 [sexy_bitch101]: those are some funking incredbale dwarings
2005-10-21 [Charybdis]: To go back to a way earlier comment: ideally, it won't be the same piece you entered last year... It's understandable that you may not have much time to put up a new one (I only hope I can enter, myself), especially on such short notice, but the idea wasn't to recreate the '04 contest again :)
2005-10-21 [Jitter]: Jack as a man rocks!!! And the rest are good too but that's my fave up to now!
2005-10-21 [Melocrie]: Ah FINALLY I decided to actually join a halloween competition...
2005-10-21 [Melocrie]: Thanks^^ I must say it's the best picture I made in months O.o
2005-10-21 [Lari]: My compliments to #6...absolutel
2005-10-21 [Forever Equine]: Thank you! =)
2005-10-21 [Melocrie]: I agree, it's incredible.
2005-10-21 [Forever Equine]: Aww.*blush* It turned out ok. The mixing mediums was hard. The uni and the moon is prisma colored pencils on orange construction paper and the bg I did in photoshop. Took me a while inbetween caring for my rugrat [Colt Michael].=)
2005-10-21 [Melocrie]: I can't help wondering: what inspired you?
2005-10-21 [Forever Equine]: Well on Deviant Art, I'm part of a lot of horse clubs and a unicorn club. The had a contest for a halloween unicorn so I drew it to mainly go with that contest theme. I figured It'd be nice to join here as well. With all the onther great entries I don't believe I will win but it's fun to join in fun contests to see everyone's elses talent!
2005-10-21 [Melocrie]: Ah I see^^ Yeah, I actually never enter specially for the winning, I just love a bit of competition. And it's always learnable (if that's a word) too
2005-10-21 [Forever Equine]: That it is. Sportmanship and competition always seem to give most people an amount of pride.
2005-10-21 [Melocrie]: I agree. When you look to it that way, winning's not all that important. Just something esle, I really can't help asking: You love horses and you named your little boy Colt. Now, is that just coincidense? =P
2005-10-21 [Forever Equine]: Hehe! Winning is just a bonus.=) Actually I had a list of about 100 names and Colt was the only one my husband liked. I wanted Logan Alexander or Colt Michael and he said Colt hands down! Funny too, my hubby's not a horse person!XD
2005-10-22 [spiritee]: tsk.. too little time left..
2005-10-22 [bluefarie]: hey, um, i thought you weren't allowed to use photos?
2005-10-22 [Forever Equine]: I like your cats black! Makes me want to go bowling! Lol! They're cute.=)
2005-10-22 [Katie Staines]: Heehee, thats what they were at first, the concepts for turning bowling pins into cats. It got a little out of hand. ^.^ SssssTRrrrrIKE
2005-10-22 [Forever Equine]: Hehe! Fun concept and well done!=D
2005-10-22 [moira hawthorne]: O.O elephant? wow now thats different...
2005-10-22 [Forever Equine]: A sexy one at that!;) I love the shading on the pumpkins.=)
2005-10-22 [moira hawthorne]: Bet she like to hear sweet nothings whispered in her ear.... ....from the next block...
2005-10-22 [RoyDante]: #6 is absolutely beautiful! :D
2005-10-23 [Forever Equine]: Thank you but the shading on yours is AWESOME Roy! It's so smooth and clean!
2005-10-23 [bluefarie]: there are 2 #13's...& #10 is a photo...& i thought there were no pictures allowed...?
2005-10-23 [moira hawthorne]: 10 is a photmanipulati
2005-10-23 [bluefarie]: "All mediums, excepting photography, will be accepted." it says nothing about photomanipulat
2005-10-23 [moira hawthorne]: yes it does... All mediums includes photomanipulat
2005-10-23 [moira hawthorne]: if any should be deleted it maybe should be... 3....[ Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e. no drawings on lined notebook paper. Any such entry will be removed. Also, scan your images if at all possible.] ... 3....cant possible be a best effort.. the fact... its not flat... its not cropped.. it shows the ringbinder...
2005-10-23 [bluefarie]: well, that really isn't lined paper..but, i know what you mean..that's how i feel about #10
2005-10-23 [moira hawthorne]: 10 is straight and cropped and doesnt show the back ground or or pad or what ever
2005-10-23 [Sue Falkenkralle]: yes, the dragon is SO cute!
2005-10-23 [shotokan_gal]: Could the owner of entry#12 please upload their image to elftown as stated in the rules.
2005-10-23 [BooHaha.xx]: i like more simple sketches, show the real artist you are
2005-10-23 [lraina]: shotokan_gal where do i do that at?
2005-10-23 [shotokan_gal]: Upload the image to your house (or to the wiki if you have wiki privs - they can be given to you by a guard), then copy and paste the url into the img tags. Like you did with the photobucket link, but those sometimes break before the voting, hence the rule. :)
2005-10-23 [lraina]: thanks ^_^
2005-10-24 [lraina]: ok im changing my pic to what i just drew and scanned and colored
2005-10-24 [lraina]: whats wiki privs? isnt everyone able to make wikis?
2005-10-24 [Charybdis]: Yes, everyone can make wikis, but having wiki-privs gives you the ability to upload pictures, or in the case of a lower priv sound files and things like that, directly to a wiki-page instead of to your house. That means you can upload transparent .gifs (like if you want to donate to Elftown Graphics ^^), and also there's no real size limit, so you don't necessarily have to shrink your pictures to upload them. There's more about them on advanced help :)
2005-10-24 [shotokan_gal]: Note to participants: the rules have been clarified with regard to photomanipulat
2005-10-24 [iippo]: There is a size limit to the uploading to wiki also, and if you go above that, then you need to resize it. But it's a pretty big limit.
2005-10-24 [Charybdis]: Oops, you're right ^^
2005-10-24 [Aidan Ryuko]: can I put a little remark below the image? I gave them masks from the legend of zelda game
2005-10-24 [Melocrie]: loool looking good
2005-10-24 [Sue Falkenkralle]: I think page 2 should be started soon, this page is getting to long. And there are two #30
2005-10-25 [shotokan_gal]: Could the owner of entry #33 also correctly crop their picture and resubmit it. I'll say again, if you really don't have access to a scanner and need to take a picture of your drawing you can, but make the effort to make it look like a drawing (and cropping isn't difficult) and not a photo of one.
2005-10-25 [toycar]: mine may be a tad violent, iono, but ill rid it if it is :)
2005-10-25 [moira hawthorne]: I think its totally cool but... the rules been changed... they arent allowing photomanips anymore... which is a shame.. yours is excellent..
2005-10-25 [toycar]: not...a photomanip, this has happened for another contest i entered, so i kept proofness in case i needed it. I did use photo reference to draw it though... I'm just an obsessive portrait drawer >.> but anyway, im off to sleep, its past 3am here ick, ill shall check back here tomorrow then. night nights.
2005-10-25 [moira hawthorne]: no eh... woow than its a very good photo realizic photoshop drawing! congrats.. yah I did one like that.. it you got a good photo as reference...
2005-10-25 [Melocrie]: That's NOT a photo!? Wow you're good...
2005-10-26 [lraina]: whats ur alls fav. drawing up here...besides ur own lol
2005-10-26 [toycar]: Everyones got such a different style of art, so eek >.>… well, considering we arent choosing the winner anyhow, id say I like [Katie Staines]s very much, just clean and simple, yet still awesomely awesome. :D And you evilhamster lady, I needs my brains, so I can draw that sploding picture of you… *nods*
2005-10-26 [RoyDante]: My favourite is still #6, "Halloween-ico
2005-10-26 [Forever Equine]: Aww, you makes me blush! *bats eyelashes* I want to learn how to create the smoothness that your picture has.
2005-10-26 [RoyDante]: heh.. ^_^ Well, it's not that hard :) I use my 2B graphite pen all the time, lol. Can't really teach smooth shading, heh.. it just comes ^_^ I think you shouldn't change your style, because I think your picture has all the smoothness it needs :) I wouldn't add or change anything
2005-10-26 [RoyDante]: And I have much to learn about coloring from ye :)
2005-10-26 [RoyDante]: omg, just had a look at your house.. o_o what do you mean with that you want to learn how to create smoothness...? :D :D :D
2005-10-26 [Forever Equine]: I just don't get the look I want. *pouts* I suppose we always want what we can't have. I mainly color with my Photoshop 7 program. I'm hoping I can finish my entry for rider art contest soon. With colored pencils it really depends on te brand, Prismas are awesome!
2005-10-26 [evilhamster]: :P!!!
2005-10-26 [toycar]: DFDfdgfg! i loove Prisma textas, they are a bit tricky to use at first, but, they are awesome indeed :D
2005-10-27 [moira hawthorne]: for everyone who drew a moon in your art... did you think to check the calender and see which moon it would be? Halloween falls two nights before the new moon. its not gonna be full. its gonna be in the last sliver of the waning 1/4
2005-10-27 [Forever Equine]: I really had no intention of making it accurate. I just wanted a full moon!^^
2005-10-27 [Forever Equine]: The full moon is just a traditional symbol of Halloween.
2005-10-27 [losthero]: May I get some comments on mine please...only my second time using photoshop...an
2005-10-27 [moira hawthorne]: its good... tho I dont get what the black line like a pointer to here is his nose is about... and the type could be bigger
2005-10-27 [losthero]: The pointer is a knife blade, and I will enlarge the font
2005-10-27 [Forever Equine]: The facial features are really nice but I don't like the lens flare for the eye.
2005-10-27 [moira hawthorne]: ohhh if its a knife... than maybe a highlight along the edge would give it more 'knifeness'
2005-10-27 [Forever Equine]: A metallic gleam would really help. Honestly I didn't even noticed until moira pointed it out.^^;
2005-10-27 [Forever Equine]: Do you have eyecandy filters?
2005-10-27 [losthero]: no...that is a lens flare effect....I couldn't highlight the knife blade.
2005-10-27 [Forever Equine]: Well for the eye, you can take a solid color, set the opactiy at about 60, then dodge tool the center. It will look more glowing. The dodge tool could also work to highlight your blade.
2005-10-27 [Dil*]: thanks moira, lost hero, perhaps you could make the knife have 'outer glow'...and the lense flare for the eye is just fine.
2005-10-27 [Charybdis]: xD @ Keyshika's entry!
2005-10-27 [Levoton]: ;)
2005-10-27 [tigerwitch]: hehe finished mine today finally
2005-10-28 [moira hawthorne]: 3 and 33 still havent correctly croped or removed their enterys
2005-10-28 [Charybdis]: They have both been messaged about it :) Although if it doesn't happen before tomorrow, their entries may be removed.
