2007-01-26 [Galain]: Ok, I'm fairly confident that I've waited a long enough period of time. The competition will officially close on Friday the 2nd of February.
2007-01-26 [Yncke]: Ok, sorry, but count me out then. That's too close for me.
2007-01-27 [Galain]: It's been over three months... Do you think I should extend it? I'd be happy to, if there were more guaranteed entries. :-)
2007-01-27 [Yncke]: You know, three months is really not much for limited entry deadlines. I'm in a contest that's been running for 2 and a half years, and still 3 entries short. As long as it isn't abandoned, that's no problem for me. In my humble opinion, if you want to change the deadline, make sure it's at least two months from now, so that people have time to take it into account and such. (I'm quite busy with a project with a rather tight deadline, at the moment, but I wasn't worried about this contest because it's quite a long distance from 15 entries.)
2007-01-27 [H3_six]: If you're going to close the competition I'll upload my sketch anyway. Might aswell contribute the idea seeing as that's what this competitions about.
2007-01-27 [Yncke]: Good idea. Only a pity that my sketching style is far too messy to enter. :)
2007-01-27 [H3_six]: XD Is a matter of opinion.
In mine, he was meant to have his foot on the lions head but I didn't plan it out properly.
2007-01-28 [Galain]: Oh. Sorry guys! To tell you the truth, I'm not too familiar with the contest mentality :-) I'm happy to keep this page active, it's just always nice to see some sign of activity - it appeared almost dead for a while there!
2007-01-28 [Dr.Mandarian]: No-no-no, it is not dead! * sticks out head and eyes above at any new thing that had went on *
But I share your state there! I also just ran my very first own moderated contest of kinds.
And... Let me say that I had also not sure masterplan how to exactly put contest scopes and deadlines.
The people that once showed real interest are still actually all on start, I think.
They only might need some more time? * looks into [Yncke]'s and all the reserving listed elftowners' directions *
This is the trick in it! It only SEEMS dead sometimes. But it secretly lives very much. Look at your watchers' score: 28!
That is a blast I would say!
2007-01-28 [Galain]: Yeah, you could be right, I think :-) Still loving your entries, by the way.
2007-01-28 [Dr.Mandarian]: * smiles *
Entries can very quickly add up and multiply over night. You never know.
I received THREE ENTIRELY NEW ENTRIES over one single night, in my map contest once - unexpected.
As long as you don't get the humble-bees in your behinds, I would trust in your ingenious idea for this, keep the thing going and just wait a bit longer - maybe by some temporary scope, but maybe not SO soon as february.
Or what do you think yourself, all others? * peeks in the off *
Mh, if only Yncke ( Purple Artichok, Midori and Crimson ) have made their own entries and [H3_six] has made her pithy english man placed his foot upon the lion's head, I will be happy.
2007-01-28 [Galain]: I really like the shields and spears poking over the hill in H3's entry...I think something could be done with them, but I'm fresh out of ideas...
2007-01-28 [Dr.Mandarian]: Right! My eye has actually never tracked that down! But that's a great idea of hers! You could even over-act that a bit more, and let the officers there pose in their smug, totally unsuspecting - inbetween a subtle wall of very unpleasantly looking shields and spears all around, already!
But also look at that lion! - lol - He looks... really very properly dead, indeed. * squints *
Well, how I know [H3_six] by other contests, in which she already participated, she can work magic, if her drawings does not 'refuse to be drawn' in a while.
2007-01-28 [kimberly ida.]: sweet?
2007-01-28 [H3_six]: Noooo, the lions not dead he's just pretending.*pr
2007-01-28 [Dr.Mandarian]: Ha ha ha!
Mh, maybe some electric shock re-animators could bring him back to life! ( There is still a chance! ) * squints *
Ah, but in order to make a serious comment towards you, I have to say... That I adore your 'dryad' for the Fantasy Portrait Contest
It is magical!
2007-01-28 [Ocean Soul]: Me too, me too =D
2007-01-30 [H3_six]: Oh gosh I'm getting complimented. ^_^
Thanks guys, being a tree wouldn't be too bad so long as I had an elftown connection. *hugs everyone*
I like the colour job there.
2007-01-31 [BinaryPhoenix]: Thank you! ^_^
2007-02-07 [Galain]: Anyone with photoshop or something want to throw together a really quick banner for the top of the page? Just to liven it up a bit, as I don't have any programs at work.
