2007-09-23 [Jitter]: Hmm I'm not sure if qualifies because witches are on the scary side. But I'm not sure :)
2007-09-23 [Sunrose]: Hmm it's indeed not exactly what we're looking for, but it doesn't necessarily violate the rules either: it's a zombie wearing a costume of a witch..
2007-09-23 [Jitter]: Yeah I had doubts because we were discussing about scary creatures "de-scaring" themselves but the theme now is what they'd dress like :)
2007-09-23 [Sunrose]: But the intention was that they'd have a non-scary costume :P
2007-09-23 [Jitter]: yeah xD
2007-09-23 [XxTsomexX]: Im sorry...
2007-09-23 [Jitter]: No need to be ;) It IS a scary creature dressed up but it didn't quite manage to de-scare himself x)
2007-09-23 [Piercedskull]: But it is descarifiing itsself!!Its frankinstine in a slutty witch costume!!!><
2007-09-23 [Jitter]: Well witches (and especially green witches ;p) are usually on the scary side
I'm not saying it's not a good image though :)
2007-09-23 [XxTsomexX]: ^^' should I redo it?
2007-09-23 [Jitter]: Well you are allowed two entries so I guess you could do a less scary one if you wanted :)
2007-09-23 [XxTsomexX]: yeah, Im kinda tempted.. maybe a pumpkin or something...
2007-09-23 [Piercedskull]: ...
2007-09-23 [Jitter]: Hahah Wereolas xD Great :D
2007-09-23 [Triola]: Danke, danke :P
2007-09-24 [Piercedskull]: What about mine you meanie? TT.TT
2007-09-24 [Ryo-Oni]: Thanks much ^-^
2007-09-25 [vagabond faery]: I absolutely adore the Wereolas one! "Candy will be spilt this night." Fantastic.
2007-09-25 [Triola]: ^________^
2007-09-25 [*akuma*]: the entries are looking really good so far! i think i may enter too ^_^ providing i get out of my little artist block.
2007-09-25 [XxTsomexX]: lol Im working on my 2nd (and better) one now ^^ it'll probably be done tomorrow.
2007-09-25 [*akuma*]: yey! i have managed to sketch an idea for mine! i hope its ok. its a bat dressed as a flower fairy :3 ( i searched online for halloween 'scary' creatures, and it came up with a bat, though i dont class them as scary..)
2007-09-25 [XxTsomexX]: XD awwwww lol y 2nd one is a troll dressed as a fairy princess
2007-09-30 [Jitter]: Awesome xD
2007-10-07 [NOOOPE]: Well, there's my two cents. Damn those lines look too light! I'll have to fix that later...
2007-10-12 [Jitter]: [Muerta] I'm afraid you're off-theme (What do all the scary, freaky creatures do on Halloween? An ogre dressed up as a fairy, a witch pretending to be a unicorn.. Let your imagination run free!
Make sure that we can see what scary creature you used and what the costume for this creature is!) and you need to shade/colour your entry too.
- drawings must be well shaded and/or coloured and have some type of background. Sketches will not be accepted.
[Lady Lucifer] you will need to shade/colour your entry as well!
2007-10-12 [*akuma*]: i have finally entered my peice, hope its ok. im going for the cuteness XD
2007-10-12 [Jitter]: Cuteness it is :D
2007-10-12 [*akuma*]: heh thanks. ijust changed it a bit, i forgot to add teh white highlight to the eye!
2007-10-12 [Jeccabee]: is there a # limit for this contest? I figure there is a time limit...being so close to Haloween and all. I guess I can go check on teh first page. :P
2007-10-12 [Jitter]: no. not a # limit but the deadline is in 12 days
2007-10-12 [Jeccabee]: so I better get crackin!
2007-10-13 [Jeccabee]: dose it have to be a ghoul or witch or something like that...or can it be anything...as long as it's backwards?
2007-10-13 [Jitter]: It can be anything as long as it is a scary creature :)
2007-10-15 [Jeccabee]: ah..ok...well them my idea is out. It's not scary. OK...back to the drawing board.
2007-10-15 [Jitter]: for example it can't be a fairy dressed as a witch but it should be a waitch dressed as a fairy.
2007-10-15 [Jeccabee]: well my first idea was a sheep in wolf's clothing...but scratched that...then I did a fox in fox hunder garb. but thats not scary. So now I need to think of something new...*ponders
2007-10-15 [Jitter]: Oh I don't know... The fox might be ok since in fairytales she's usually the cunning side of evil..? :)
We already have a wolf up there *points*
2007-10-15 [Jeccabee]: I already drew out another idea. It's more on the cute side...but still it's an "evil" creature dressed all "good"
2007-10-15 [Jitter]: ^_^
2007-10-15 [Jeccabee]: I thought about coloring it on the computer...but I think I'm gonna do this one with colored pencils...have
2007-10-17 [Titus (Cammy)]: My entry will come soon >.> I'm gonna be really late. I still have to find the right colour for the sky..... -.-'
2007-10-17 [Jitter]: Haha awesome!
2007-10-18 [Jeccabee]: LOL that's great!
2007-10-23 [Jeccabee]: I'm almost done with mine!!!
2007-10-23 [Jitter]: Hurry up only 2 days left!
2007-10-23 [nehirwen]: short time indeed, I'm glad mine is finished and up, I'm just learning to work with a wacom and photoshop, it takes a lot of time, also in this entry, but I'm pretty happy with the end result so far ^^
2007-10-23 [Jitter]: You're learning now? :O This image is very good for a beginner :3
2007-10-23 [nehirwen]: thank you! ^^
yes, I've got the wacom of my bf for a few days now. I must give a lot of credit to several tutorials on elftown tutorials for these results though ;) but that's why they're there, yay for the tutors.
2007-10-24 [Jeccabee]: oh yeah....I love tutorials! I used a couple in my entry...which is just about done. I should have it up today! WOOT! I have a wacom but it's not hooked up...I need to hook it back up so I can figure out how to use it again! :P
2007-10-24 [nehirwen]: you can always download the drivers for your wacom from their site.. (or isn't that the problem?) it's just a usb-connection right?
2007-10-24 [Jeccabee]: oh I have the softwear needed...I just stopped using it so my mom took it off the computer. I was gonna sell it but thought...no one day I'm gonna want to use it again. My problem is I hardly ever get on that computer so I dont hook it up. I'm usually here and this comptuer cant handle anymore stuff added to it. What I need is MY OWN laptop then I can hook it up to that.
2007-10-24 [nehirwen]: ah okey, well I hope you soon got enough money to buy your own laptop then :)
2007-10-24 [Jeccabee]: LOL that'll be the day! I'm hopin to get one as a gift! Cause I cant even think about affording to pay for one myself. Maybe I can make an arrangement with my parents...mmm
2007-10-24 [Jeccabee]: FINALLY done! yay me!
2007-10-24 [Jeccabee]: thanky! ^_^
2007-10-24 [Jitter]: Very nice ^_^
2007-10-25 [Titus (Cammy)]: oh, it had to be scary? >.> hm. Oopse, my bad. I just thought it was any creature. I was wondering why so many people picked werewolves and goblins.
2007-10-25 [Jitter]: Hehe yeah sorry :(
What do all the scary, freaky creatures do on Halloween? An ogre dressed up as a fairy, a witch pretending to be a unicorn.. Let your imagination run free! Make sure that we can see what scary creature you used and what the costume for this creature is!
2007-10-25 [Jitter]: And my apologies for not letting you know earlier but entries without background will probably be disqualified.
This is not a decision of the last minute as the rules stated that there has to be a background of some sort.
2007-10-25 [fen]: didnt notced that... is kinda hard to make background on china ink drawing... oh well theres allways next year
2007-10-25 [*akuma*]: i didnt notice either, but i put a background on mine now, its rather lame though, im not used to making backgroundd ^_^'
2007-10-25 [Mom]: Nothing like waiting till the last minute to finish...=\
2007-10-25 [Jeccabee]: akuma I love yours...it's really cute! I also love yours mom! That's great!
2007-10-25 [Mom]: Thanx sweetie. =}
2007-10-25 [*akuma*]: thanks ^__^ and i like mom's too, love the tutu!
2007-10-25 [5thwitch]: I wanted to partcipate but my shoulder problem came back during the inking (as usual) and now my picture is only halfdone. So, I have my right arm blocked... well I still have my left one to vote for the final poll. good luck everyone!!
2007-10-25 [Triola]: Yours doesn't have a background, Jitt ;)
2007-10-25 [Sunrose]: It does though. A background means there's more than nothing there.
In her case she added a shadow to the character :)
2007-10-25 [Triola]: Hehe, I know, I was kidding :P
2007-10-25 [Sunrose]: *spankings* :P
2007-10-25 [Triola]: :O
2007-10-25 [WestFactor]: Very nice entries! (I totally forgot about the contest this year! lol)
2007-10-26 [Jitter]: It might be lame but it is still a shadow :P
2007-10-26 [Grandamelf]: Tee Hee! Technically, a Shawdow is is either in the forground or the background depending on the light! That would indicate that there "is" a background! I love the Goblin Mermaid!
2007-10-26 [Jitter]: Thank you :)
I'm quite horrible with backgrounds but I hate leaving them white too ^^;
2007-10-26 [Grandamelf]: oops! I mean Shadow!
PS. I love all the entries, this was so much fun!
2007-10-26 [Grandamelf]: Me Too! :)
2007-10-26 [Lord Dog]: I thought the shadow only background looked cool.
2007-10-26 [Jitter]: Thank you :)
2007-10-26 [Triola]: Man, I've started a 'praise Jitter' convo -_-' As if her head wasn't big enough already >.> <.< >.> Kidding! ^_^;; Love you Jitt!
2007-10-26 [Lord Dog]: So are you saying we should or shouldn't finish the shrine?
2007-10-26 [Triola]: Hmmmm, difficult one, difficult one. I say finish it, but hide it and don't tell Jitt :D It will feel more stalkery like that :3
2007-10-26 [Jitter]: I already have a shrine :P
2007-10-26 [fen]: well, if the difference between background or no background is a shadow, i don't see how that could disqualify me. I mean, I just lack a smudge behind the werewolf...
2007-10-26 [5thwitch]: Thank you Jitter!
2007-10-26 [Jitter]: well, if the difference between background or no background is a shadow, i don't see how that could disqualify me. I mean, I just lack a smudge behind the werewolf...
Well, mine (if you want to use that as an example) has also added colour on the background (it's not transparent) and the shadow is detailed and not a smudge :P Yours on the other hand, like you yourself said, lacks even that "smudge"
2007-10-26 [Yncke]: I think that a nice frame or something similar could make a lot of difference as well, [fen]. It's the difference between a finished looking piece, and something that looks like it could come from a border line in a notebook.
Not that I am saying that a backgroundless drawing is by definition a notebook doodle, it's just a figure of speech to explain what I mean without having to fill three comment boxes. ;) I can clearly see a lot of effort has gone into the drawing, and I like your werelamb drawing. :)
2007-10-26 [Jeccabee]: so anyways...the contest closed yesturday...so I'm just wondering when the winners will be announced. Good luck everyone!
2007-10-26 [Sunrose]: On Halloween of course :P
Or at least that is the goal..
2007-10-26 [Mom]: *Is uncomfortable being used as an example*=\
2007-10-26 [fen]: didn't meant to offend anyone, sorry jitterbug, sorry everibody. Was a bit mad when I wrote that.
2007-10-30 [Lord Dog]: Hey aren't the entries by Artsie_Ladie and Myself missing from the poll?
2007-10-30 [Yncke]: Not all entries are in the mainstreet poll. The crew already made a first selection.
2007-10-30 [Artsieladie]: There are only a certain number of entries that can make it into the Mainstreet poll. Otherwise, the poll would overrun Mainstreet. O..O Yours, mine & some others didn't make it in this round. Don't let this discourage you, however, b/c it's not meant to. Contests are just meant to challenge one's creativity & the artist to have fun in doing so. I'm very happy with my piece. Winning or losing cannot change this. *huggles*
2007-10-30 [nehirwen]: I was very happy with my entry too, didn't make it either.. I'm still happy with my piece ;)
2007-10-30 [Lord Dog]: just confused because it was on the page but not the poll...Looked like some wonky deal and kind of ruined the fun. But everything is cool now I guess.
2007-10-30 [Jitter]: Unfortunately yes there can't be every entry entry on Mainstreet :(
2007-10-30 [Lord Dog]: aaah well I still made the Brittany Drow (apparently She looks like Brittany Spears as a drow )
2007-10-30 [Jeccabee]: nah...she's not crazy enough! LOL :P
2007-10-30 [Jeccabee]: Thanky. I feel the same way...I like to know my art is appreciated.
2007-10-30 [Lord Dog]: [Jeccabee], you just can't see she dropped her baby to save the lollipop
[Artsieladie], I like you entry too, that's why I was concerned ours were not on there as well as [Thistlewood]'s Crayon Monsters and the others I thought it was a glitch or theme violation or something
2007-10-31 [Jeccabee]: oh yeah...ok :P
2007-10-31 [Lord Dog]: *grins* Actually isn't that behavior you'd expect from a drow , especially if it was a male child?
2007-10-31 [Jitter]: lmao xD Possibly
2007-10-31 [Lord Dog]: Serious question, and possibly a stupid one..Are we are still participants even though we didn't make the cut for the MSpoll? Are we still supposed to display the Participant's badge or not?
2007-10-31 [Linderel]: Yes, you are.
2007-10-31 [Calico Tiger]: You never have to display any badge that you are rewarded :) It's completely up to you. But everyone who entered and who didn't have their entry disqualified is considered a participant and gets a participant's badge to display or not at their choice. If that made sense and I didn't ramble too much, hehe!
2007-10-31 [Linderel]: I might consider not making my replies so curt xP Was only addressing the 'are we still participants' part...
2007-10-31 [Calico Tiger]: Eep, didn't mean to you, Linderel, hehe!
2007-10-31 [Linderel]: I figured it wasn't, at least not most of it xD But still.
2007-10-31 [Lord Dog]: I only asked because this is the first Main street contest I entered. Well second but the other one doesn't end for a while
2007-10-31 [Jitter]: This was the first time I made it to the Mainstreet poll xP
2007-11-01 [Morningstar Rising]: Congrats to all the winners, nice job guys.
2007-11-01 [Artsieladie]: Congrats to all the entrants. Everyone did a great job! :-D
2007-11-01 [Jeccabee]: thanky! ^_^
