2007-10-19 [Jitter]: *allows eyes to pop out*
Watch the belly! Watch the belly!
2008-01-15 [Kuruni]: nothing new around here eh? :(
2008-01-15 [Jitter]: I guess we need to advertise more :s
2008-04-04 [Katie Staines]: Hey there, is this contest still going? I know it said 30 entries, but it hasn't had another entry for a while now. Just wondering.
2008-04-04 [Lothuriel]: yes it is still open. I have been absent from Et for well over 3 months due to some unfortunate circumstances. I assume people didn't enter because they thought I had left for good. So, I am giving it another month or so then I will close it up if no more art is entered
2008-05-17 [Eyonic]: I entered....tho
2008-05-19 [Cia_mar]: well i finally have something to add here! lol
2008-05-19 [Thistlewood]: I have something too!! As soon as I'm done coloring it!
2008-05-19 [Lothuriel]: Awesome! Thanks guys!
2008-05-20 [Calico Tiger]: Someone not so subtly hint hinted in her diary, so I entered XD
2008-05-20 [Thistlewood]: I wonder who could have done that??
2008-05-21 [Calico Tiger]: *ticklepokes Thistle* I wonder
2008-05-21 [Skydancer]: hmmmmmm...
2008-05-21 [Yuriona]: And here I thought maybe I should finish my naga and toss him in here too! ;)
2008-05-21 [Lothuriel]: Sweeet!!
2008-05-21 [Calico Tiger]: More nagas! Finish eeet Yuri!
2008-05-22 [Kyrinn]: Oh you MUST enter him, Yuri!!
2008-05-22 [Yuriona]: O_o
2008-05-22 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: Hey Jit, I thought I saw your entry in the St Patty's day contest... was the contest canceled for lack of entires?
2008-05-22 [Calico Tiger]: Dirty old ladies :O
Scarlet, do you have a link for the contest? *is too lazy to look for it* >_>
2008-05-23 [Calico Tiger]: Holy crap, I missed a whole contest. I gotta pay better attention XD And yar, that would make the entry here invalid by Loth's rules.
2008-05-23 [Lothuriel]: Ooooh, sexy naga....
2008-05-26 [Perplexity]: "Enter him" lol You girls are so dirty =9 I gotta draw SOMETHING, or I should just ban myself from this site it has been so long. This contest looks like a good place to start ^^
2008-05-26 [Yuriona]: DRAW SOMETHING!! YES!! It has been too long Plexie. Now get to work or I'll have to get my dungeon toys out and convince you. MUAHAHAHAHAHAA
2008-05-26 [Perplexity]: Eep!
2008-05-27 [Jitter]: Oops indeed! Consider this a placeholder then till I find something new!
2008-05-28 [Perplexity]: I hope that is not too many boobies >.>
2008-05-28 [Thistlewood]: hmm, my computer decided not to let me see the last entries. Including mine!
2008-05-28 [Calico Tiger]: Awesome entry, Plex!
2008-05-28 [Cia_mar]: cool... i just sawthat we can have 2 entries... best get finished with my current wip... i am definitely gonna try and get it in here!!!*bounce
2008-05-28 [moira hawthorne]: yes! your mer is excellent...
2008-05-28 [Perplexity]: THanks, Cali =} Jitter, I think "bairy" is so cute ^^
2008-05-29 [Calico Tiger]: Omg, Plex :O *falls over in awe*
2008-05-29 [Perplexity]: *checks Cali's pockets for money or candy*
2008-05-29 [Yuriona]: *sneaks up from behind and gropes both*
2008-05-29 [Perplexity]: *shares candy with Yuri* No munny =P
2008-05-29 [Yuriona]: Mmmmm... candy... *drools Homer style*
2008-05-29 [Perplexity]: Oh no wait! *smacks the candy from Yuri's mouth* these are laxatives! What a strange thing to have in her pockets... *eyeballs Cali*
2008-05-29 [Calico Tiger]: I don't wear pants, so.... where are you sticking your hands??
2008-05-29 [Perplexity]: .> Are these laxatives not oral? -.-
2008-05-29 [Perplexity]: I need hot water, and lots of soap...
2008-05-29 [Yuriona]: Been there, done that... *grins* Wanna go there again? }:D
2008-05-29 [Kyrinn]: *watches from a safe distance*
2008-05-29 [Calico Tiger]: x)
2008-05-29 [Kyrinn]: be nice to me, I just got back from road trip!!
2008-05-29 [Yuriona]: Me? Nice? Heck no! No c'mere and lemme give you a warm, dungeon welcome... heh heh heh...
2008-05-29 [Kyrinn]: Umm.. *hides*
2008-05-29 [Jeccabee]: wow Plexi your pic is comin along great!
2008-05-29 [Jeccabee]: It's amazing how fast a conversation about art when to a convo about laxatives and WRS talk...hmmm
2008-05-29 [Yuriona]: Sowwy... *hangs head* I can't help it!
2008-05-29 [Perplexity]: Thanks, Jecca. I don't think it's going to go any further than that though >.> I can't find the stylus to the Wacom tablet, but I wish I could color it.
2008-05-29 [Jeccabee]: aww is ok Yuri...it was fun to read! LOL
yw Plexi...well maybe you can color it in the furture. But it still looks awesome as is!
2008-06-09 [Jeccabee]: that is an awesome mermaid Plexi!
2008-06-09 [Perplexity]: Thank you, Jecca! I think her belly is full of roe *pokes at it*
2008-06-09 [Jeccabee]: she doesnt have to be a skinny mermaid...LOL
2008-07-24 [Lothuriel]: Is there anyone else planning an entry? If not, I am going to go ahead and slap up a poll. I have like a billion contest ideas that I want to get out in the open.
2008-07-24 [Skydancer]: No, there is no way I can get anything done in the middle of this move. :) lots of great stuff up there already!
2008-07-24 [Jeccabee]: I wanted to...but there's no way
2008-08-21 [Lady of Lore]: Ha! Awesome contest! ^_____________
2008-08-21 [moira hawthorne]: No repeat entries! This means, if your art is found in another contest in Elftown, it will be removed from this one. We have had problems with folks in the past entering one picture in up to 10 contests and winning several of them. I don't think that is fair and it defeats the purpose of the contests.
[Lothuriel] what about 7?
it was entered into in the atypical fairy contest and is even in the final pole on main st
2008-08-21 [Jeccabee]: I noticed that too!
2008-08-21 [SilverFire]: But it was submitted to this contest first, and the fae contest is the one that allows repeat entries. (Just pointing that out).
2008-08-21 [moira hawthorne]: well I could of entered mine in many other contests since the start of this one... but I respected Lothuriel's rules since I entered in this one first
2008-08-21 [Jeccabee]: I didnt know that fact Silverfire. but I agree with Kyrinn...it's Loth's contest so she should decide.
2008-08-21 [moira hawthorne]: I edited my comment to make it 'clearer' I was waiting for the contest owner's answer
2008-08-21 [SilverFire]: Is there anyone who doesn't think the owner of the contest should decide? XP
2008-08-23 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: both Jitter and empty_one 's entries are repeats. I'd like to enter this though...
2008-08-23 [SilverFire]: It was submitted into the magic art contest for newbies, but then removed again - I don't know if it was entered in anything else, though.
2008-08-24 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: oh ya... I forgot that it was removed. Though I do think I saw it in a centaur contest.. could be wrong though
2008-08-25 [Jeccabee]: ok so she's not brand new....but she's never been in another contest! I PROMISE on that!
I do want to do another drawing for this...so it's good we can have two entries.
2008-08-25 [iippo]: That is gorgeous, Jecca. :)
2008-08-26 [deeterhi]: Thanks :)
2008-08-26 [Jeccabee]: I'm workin on my second peice. woot!
2008-08-28 [Trina..]: How do I upload it to the site? Or can I use photobucket ness?
2008-08-28 [Jeccabee]: there is also a button on the right of all wiki pages that says "Upload a file". That's how I do it.
Course you already have something up...so nevermind :P
2008-08-28 [nehirwen]: You must have priv 99 to see/have that button anyway. ;)
clicking on the button at the top of your house (upload a folder of images) is the alternative for that.
2008-08-28 [Jeccabee]: priv 99? I dont know what that is...I see the button on all the wikis...well maybe not the ones that are editable by the owner only.
I also dont know about th eupload a fold of images button...I'll have to go check that out! O.o
2008-08-28 [Jeccabee]: OOOH that is cool! I've never noticed that button before! Thanks!
2008-08-28 [Jeccabee]: ah. I didnt even know I had that...course I didnt know what it was. hmmm thanks again.
2008-08-28 [nehirwen]: x)
2008-08-28 [Trina..]: I hope I did okay, I know I wont win, but I wanna at least get people somehwat interested in my work. XD
2008-08-29 [Jeccabee]: you did a good job Cadaver! very nice! :)
2008-09-06 [Cia_mar]: how many can we enter per person in this contest?
2008-09-06 [Thistlewood]: 2 ma'am.
2008-09-06 [Cia_mar]: thought so! but figured i would check since my eyes did not see it in the rules...*grumb
2008-09-07 [Jeccabee]: lol yeah I know how you feel Cia...I miss things all the time.
2008-09-08 [Cia_mar]: :)
2008-09-10 [Lothuriel]: Ah nice...a dragon!
2008-09-10 [Thistlewood]: I made a dragon..:( I admit he is wimpy..and cute. But I made a dragon.
2008-09-10 [Jitter]: My dragon would never beat yours Thistle ;) Now we have 3 dragons!
2008-09-10 [Thistlewood]: lol..I like your dragon. I was just giving Loth a hard time.
2008-09-11 [Lothuriel]: ;p
2008-09-11 [Thistlewood]: ;P hehe
2008-09-11 [Jitter]: bwehehe
2008-09-11 [Eyonic]: lol
2008-09-12 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: This your dragon is going to kill simply on the basis that it's adorable! *thinks we need an off-shoot for cute fuzzy things* :P
2008-09-14 [Serwa]: Thank you :)
2008-09-18 [Calico Tiger]: Oooooo awesome!
2008-09-22 [Jeccabee]: that awesome Waka!
2008-09-22 [Serwa]: Thanks for the possitive reactions!
Havn't drawn for quite a while, only picked it up again recently, makes it worth the effort! Thank you!
2008-10-15 [Neimo]: I hope Neith counts for this contest.
If not, then I suppose we'll just have to tear her down and stuff her in the 'No Go' Bin.
2008-10-16 [Neimo]: It's a photo manipulation.
And most of it was done by filters in photoshop.
I heart photoshop filters.
2008-10-16 [Yuriona]: That's insane!! x) Where'd you get your photo stock?
2008-10-16 [Neimo]: Deviant Art has a ton of stock
Renderosity is a good place to go for ideas on picture lay-outs, although I use that less than general web-browsing.
Google tends to throw out pictures and ideas more often than anything else, however.
2008-10-16 [Yuriona]: Just remember that if you want to display that awesome piece on your house, you need to list the stock photos that you used. =)
2008-11-10 [Perplexity]: Thank you! Yeah, she looks a little lost floating in the nothingness, eh?
2008-11-10 [Jeccabee]: OOH Plexi the colored version is awesome!
2008-11-10 [Perplexity]: Thanks, Jecca!
2008-11-13 [Cia_mar]: cool pic [Neimo]... are you on RedBubble? i think i have seen this there when randomly looking through there, and would love to see more of your stuff if you are...(save me from having to try and find you again! lol)
2008-11-16 [Neimo]: Thanks, [Cia_mar]. ^.^ And no, I'm not on this RedBubble site you speak of. I am, however, on DeviantArt. But I don't have more than three or four deviations on there. If you've seen the Neith picture on RedBubble it's likely because someone picked it up off of my deviant page, or even from my house here. -nods wisely-
2008-11-16 [Perplexity]: Oooh, art thief! Lynch 'em!
2008-11-16 [Neimo]: -head shake-
Unlike other artists, I don't mind if someone takes my work. I do what I do because I enjoy the end result, and if other people enjoy it as well, then more power to them.
I sorta figure that the minute I put a picture up on the internet, it's no longer mine. Anyone who really wants it will take it whether I want them to or not. So I don't get pissy about that sort of thing.
2008-11-17 [Perplexity]: I sure got pissy when a 16 year old girl took a drawing I had spent hours working on, put it in her house, and wrote under it "Just a quick sketch I did the other night, tell me what you think!"
2008-11-17 [Yuriona]: Too bad you don't have any work in progress images of it [Neimo]. That would go a long way to prove that it is your work. If those are photoshop brushes, where did you get them! I want them for my photoshop! XD
2008-11-17 [Perplexity]: Just out of curiosity, [Neimo], where did you get the images for your entry? Did you draw them yourself or are they stock photos? For instance, [Jitter] has provided us a link for the digital stock she used in her entry. Maybe this would help [Cia_mar] recall where she saw the original artwork.
2008-11-17 [Yuriona]: Sorry about the thumbnailing but I just wanted to tidy the page up a little.
2008-11-18 [Perplexity]: Awww, who's OCD? *pinches Yuri's cheeks* =D
2008-11-18 [Yuriona]: Hey now... I might have to return the favour Plex. ;)
2008-11-18 [Jeccabee]: I need to finish my second picture...I've fallen behind in my art. :(
2008-11-19 [Neimo]: Most of the brushes that I have were given to me by a friend on a CD back about 4 years ago. Others, I've downloaded from the 'net since then. I don't know or remember where they came from specifically.
As for the picture, [Perplexity], I didn't draw the pictures. They were stock. I don't remember where I got them from. I never knew that I'd have to account for every picture I used. Just as I never expected to actually try my hand at any contest. This has been the first one I've ever added a picture to.
But if you have an issue with my submission then just take it down. I never figured anyone would have a problem with it, but I'm not going to sit here and defend my work just because I can't remember where the raw art came from.
I don't want to be ignorant about it. I do know that I didn't steal the picture or the raw art it took to create the image. I have the computer that I used to create the image on, but it would be a pain in the neck to tear the computer I'm using now down, hook up my old computer, upload the PSD image, tear down my old computer and re-connect my current computer. Just...no.
So, as I said, if you have a problem with the picture because I don't have sources for it, then take it down.
2008-11-19 [Yuriona]: Taking stock images and using them without permission or giving proper credit to those who created the stock images could be construed as theft. If that is the case, I'm not sure you can display the image on your Elftown house but it is fine to display in a wiki of your work. If you truly did not know that you would have to account for every picture you used, then I suggest reading the uploading art rules before displaying any more of your artwork on your house.
As for the contest, whether your work is acceptable or not is really up to the contest owner and you will have to wait for her decision on the matter.
2008-11-19 [Neimo]: It's just not worth it.
I'll go ahead and take it down.
2008-11-20 [Perplexity]: It's just not worth following the uploading art rules or even reading them in the first place. That's too bad. But, I guess I understand it being too far back to recall where you got all the pieces for your entry.
Well, it was a really cool picture and I'll bet a dollar it would have won the contest! Next time you put some effort into a pic, note the sources so you can participate in contests and be a part of Elftown. ET needs art to survive, and we all gotta feed the beast! =)
I hope this has not discouraged you from entering contests or posting new work. Please understand that the majority of artists feel very protective of their work and want credit where credit is due. You are actually the first person I have met that has a laissez-faire attitude towards this!
2008-11-20 [Jeccabee]: that's sad about Niemo's pic...it was an awesome piece of work.
2008-11-20 [Perplexity]: lol @ moira's comment!
2008-11-20 [Lothuriel]: Irony makes the world go round.
2008-11-20 [Perplexity]: And revenge is the axis it spins upon.
2008-11-20 [Lothuriel]: ...and whatnot...
2009-01-06 [Lothuriel]: 5 More entries!!! *gets anxious*
2009-01-07 [Perplexity]: Can I do a 3rd entry? Or can I collab on one?
2009-01-07 [Kyrinn]: Hey, Loth, I think there are actually 24 entries up there..
2009-01-07 [Perplexity]: Uh oh, yup. The first entry started with #2!
2009-01-10 [Jeccabee]: OH hey Plexi if you want to colab...maybe you can help me finish my second entry! I've started her but I'm not happy with the way she's being colored.
2009-04-01 [Lothuriel]: I CLOSED THIS CONTEST 5 ENTRIES EARLY. It has been open since 2006. Thank you to all who entered!
2009-04-03 [Kuruni]: Is it allowed to vote twice or even three times?
2009-04-03 [Lothuriel]: I added the rule. One can vote multiple times.
2009-04-06 [Company Awesome]: I must say I appreciate the world snake, the final drawing.
2009-04-07 [jaraden]: HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!! i can't bloody well decide who to vote for.. there are like a half dozen that immidiatly caught my eye... can i vote for more then one?? if so then... SWEET!!!!!!!!!
2009-04-07 [Lothuriel]: Yeppers, you can vote as many times as you wish.
2009-04-09 [jaraden]: can i??? SWEETTTTTTTTTT
*does happy dance!!!!!!!!!
2009-04-14 [Eyonic]: :( not too many people like my art....all well
2009-04-15 [jaraden]: don't go on like that Empty-One, votes don't mean people like your art any less then another, i hate it when people (especially artists) attach value to their art based on popularity.. everyone's art is awesome (i know that sounds sappy, leave me alone, i'm ranting here!) in their own merit, it's what the ARTIST think of his/her works that matters, not how much other's like it, or campared to another artists work... there is LOADS of fantastic art featured here, one can only choose a piece (or in my case several) that 'speak' to them personally... that's all!!! so i swear, if i hear you putting down your art one more time Empty-One i'll hunt you down and beat you senceless with a waffle!!!!! yeah that;s right a syruppy drenched WAFFLE!!!!!!!!
2009-04-15 [Yuriona]: Nicely put Seb! *hugs* He's right empty-one. Just because your art may not be popular doesn't mean it isn't good. :P
2009-04-15 [Company Awesome]: Quite a statement, jaraden. I support it whole-heartedl
2009-04-17 [jaraden]: *snorts steam outta nostrils and stamps foot ominously*
yeah... take some of that!
2009-04-19 [Eyonic]: *hides* jaraden's gonna step on meh!!!
Thanks for that though. I don't do too much art, so yeah...
2009-04-20 [jaraden]: well the art you do do you should be proud of!! heck, i likes it, and i know so do others, so take solice in that!!! or else!
2009-04-21 [Company Awesome]: ...the beatings will continue until your self-image improves.
2009-04-22 [jaraden]: *nods* exactly!!!!!!!
2009-04-22 [jaraden]: stomps around like bad 70s 'godzilla' breaking a lego city around you and roaring!!!
2009-04-27 [Alexi Ice]: ZOMG! That baby dragon this is SUPER CUTE! These are all wonderful though, guys, seriously.
2009-04-29 [Serwa]: Wow, just read my guestbook message on the mod choice, pleasantly surprised! Thank you very much!
Was a fun contest, thanks to everyone involved!
2009-04-29 [Lothuriel]: Thank you for entering!! ^__^
2009-05-03 [jaraden]: CONGRATES to the winners!!! but you all deserve a round of applause!!! every one of your pieces were amazing and creative!!! great job guys!!!!!!!!!!
2009-05-09 [jaraden]: yeah yeah!! go check it out!!!
and again, way to go everyone who entered!! all your entries were awesome!!!!!!
2009-12-24 [Rondel]: Wow! I'm glad that I wandered here on my latest "I have a breathing space so I'm going to spend some time on ET if it kills me" jaunt... ...even if the contest was long over by the time I found it. :D
[deeterhi], as usual, yours was among the artwork that caught my eye (I said "among", I don't have time to name all of the pieces/artists here I like, and a recitation of most of the entrants would probably get boring, and be the only way to be accurate... LOL), but not for the usual reason this time.
I'm not sure why, but when I spotted that unicorn of yours, the first thought in my head was "I want to see a Tarot deck done in that style" -- and the reason I'm not sure why is that it's not about it being Tarot cards, because this piece isn't classic Tarot imagery. I think it's something about the way this piece kind of grabs me by the intuitive part of my artistic response circuit, if that makes any sense. I could see this kind of image as being very easy to respond to on an emotional level, a pre-intellectu
Huh. For a response that was so strong, I guess it's hard to articulate in a way that would make any sense to anyone else. LOL Still, worth a try, I guess. Whenever anyone's art affects me that much, I tend to want to try to reflect that back to them -- just as I would want to know if something I created had that kind of impact on a viewer. :D
2010-01-17 [Kuruni]: Congrats to the winners!! woohoo!! this one was fun!
2010-05-25 [jaraden]: who won?? when did this happen?? did i vote? i don't remember! ha! congrates regardles to everyone!!
2010-06-01 [Lothuriel]: The winners are at the top of the wiki ^__^
2010-06-02 [jaraden]: yeah, typical me.. didn't see that on the way down!! har har har! congrates!!!
2011-06-08 [pegasus1000]: watches...
2011-06-10 [Lothuriel]: I am thinking of running this again. Would anyone be interested?
2011-06-10 [pegasus1000]: I would.
2011-06-10 [Thistlewood]: Me too! I need an excuse to draw something!
2011-06-10 [Triola]: My plan for the summer is to draw all I can, so I'd be up for it :)
2011-06-14 [Company Awesome]: I really loved the pictures from the first one, I would definitely love to see a second run. I may not be a pen and paper artist, but I can still cast a vote and appreciate the skills of others. :)
2011-08-25 [kamisch]: I totally would.
2012-01-05 [Ravenclaw]: Is this still running? If so:
2012-01-07 [Lothuriel]: No it isn't running right now but, as soon as I get a bit more organized around here, it's on my to do list! :)
2012-01-07 [Ravenclaw]: K, I was just curious.
2012-01-07 [Lothuriel]: I love the unicorn and the fairy btw! ^__^ :)
2012-01-07 [Ravenclaw]: Thanks. If you like it that much I'm open to commissions. Hint hint nudge nudge lol.
2012-01-10 [Lothuriel]: That'd be awesome if I was flat broke :p
2012-01-10 [Ravenclaw]: That sounds strangely like an insult... I'm really hoping that was supposed to be "Wasn't".
2012-02-09 [Lothuriel]: OMIGOSH!! Yes! Yes! "Was not broke!" That'd be horrible it I meant it the other way!!
2012-02-10 [Ravenclaw]: lol
