2010-01-17 [Aeolynn]: That's too bad about photo manips not being accepted... I have a really good one I was hoping to submit ;_;
2010-01-21 [jacen81]: I agree, Kim's is really unique.
2010-02-03 [arthemis_]: You know that these creatures are exceptionally hard to draw! *edited the last part, because I saw there was no photo competition* This contest is going to be very difficult!
2010-02-03 [jacen81]: God, I really hope I have time to do this.
2010-02-03 [Alexi Ice]: Well then, I must wish you the best of luck.
2010-02-16 [Serwa]: I'm working on an entry. Sketch can be seen on me house.
2010-02-26 [arthemis_]: No one entered yet? Why? *goes to work on her own entry*
2010-02-26 [SilverFire]: Maybe they're all still working on their entries like you & SirWaka. :)
2010-03-12 [Zab]: *working* :P
2010-03-12 [arthemis_]: *also working* ;D
2010-03-13 [jacen81]: Likewise... I hope I make the deadline.
2010-03-22 [Zab]: Mine's done :)
A bit too dark perhaps..:/
2010-03-22 [Kuramasgirl]: Zab, that's awesome! :D
And I like how dark it is. <3
2010-03-23 [Zab]: Thanks! :D
2010-04-02 [Alexi Ice]: The deadline has been extended a month! <3
2010-04-02 [Zab]: Bleh! :P *feels threathened by that*
2010-04-03 [Kuramasgirl]: Ooh, I could actually enter something now. >D
2010-04-03 [Zab]: Nooooooo! :P
2010-04-03 [Kuramasgirl]: Muahahahaha...
2010-04-24 [arthemis_]: Introducing my new style: Abstract. I'm experimenting with abstract and lines, and I hope it's still within the rules of this contest. I believe through the well placed lines you still can recognize a centaur in it :)
2010-04-25 [SilverFire]: Cool line-art, but I don't think it really classes as abstract. :)
2010-04-25 [Zab]: I'm probably the wrong person to mention it, since I'm participating.
Perhaps the artist would like to make a new entry before the time's out, so I figured I could ask/mention it now. Would have said something earlier if I'd noticed it, to let the artist have more time..
But perhaps I'm the only one who doesn't think it meets the theme, and I'm not the one to decide if it's following the rules or not. :)
2010-04-25 [Chimes]: Hmmm. After thinking about it, I think you might be right - the description does explicitly say 'horse'.
2010-04-26 [Alexi Ice]: Maybe they don't know what a horse tail looks like? the BODY part looks like a horse to me. The horns could just give it a little spice. I say it's fine but I will defenitly ask the other mods about it.
The thing is, though, since ECM is a 'typical' fariy tale contest and the entries have to be the most...um...yo
2010-04-26 [Daisy_Sandybanks]: So should I take it down then, or what?
2010-04-26 [Zab]: Akane Ice; how's the others not typical centaurs to you?
2010-04-26 [Alexi Ice]: Arthemis is the only one I see that might not make the cut. I think number five is fine. But I'd need a second opinion...
2010-04-26 [SilverFire]: Arthemis' is definitely a typical centaur, it's just not a typical style. :P
2010-04-26 [Alexi Ice]: [Daisy_Sandybanks] - The ECM mods would like to ask you if you could make a couple of changes to your entry to make it more of a typical Centaur (remove the horns and possibly fix the tail.) Unfortunatly the ECM is for 'typical' entries and yours is not quite typical. Sorry and thanks
2010-04-27 [Aeolynn]: Hey Akane, my sculpture for the ECM gryphon wasn't a typical grpyh, yet it was accepted. But then again... that was sort of unchangeable while a digital drawing is... XD
Just wanted to put that out there.
2010-04-27 [SilverFire]: How was yours not a typical gryphon? I just went and re-checked, and it still looks typical to me. (but there's also slightly more lee-way in the description of a gryphon - there's not set rule about where it has to change from being eagle to being lion, etc.
2010-04-27 [Aeolynn]: oh yeah very true. Just everyone thinks bald eagle/lion is typical though... mine was more panther/mounta
2010-04-27 [Serwa]: Fukkin hell what can a person be busy.
I hardly had any time to work on the drawing I wished to make,
started on a new one today, already in coloring stage, there's a lined version on my page, hope I get it finished before the deadline!
2010-04-27 [arthemis_]: Mine is typical, I used multiple images of mustangs as reference for the lower body. Mustangs are a horses, right? :P Up part is supposed to be male ;) As for number 5, I don't know, the body part is much too lean for it to be a cow's, only the tail and the horns are cow-ish to me.
2010-04-28 [Aeolynn]: I agree, just a slight difference between it and a regular centaur, and if anyone looked at it, they would say centaur. But the judges do have a point that it does not look like a typical centaur
2010-04-28 [Alexi Ice]: I do apologize, Arthemis. It was the style of the drawing that threw me off. Now that I have looked at it properly, it does look fine.
2010-04-28 [arthemis_]: :) Don't need to, I understand!
2010-04-29 [Alexi Ice]: SirWaka! - Love the frog!
2010-04-29 [Serwa]: Finissshhhhhhh
2010-04-29 [Serwa]: Thanks! Maybe we can make a ECM frog contest too :P then I am finished for that one already, too ;)
Was fun working on his piece, happy that I made it before the deadline!
2010-04-30 [Zab]: Looks good :)
2010-05-05 [Alexi Ice]: I'm sorry, but the poetry and text sections have one entry each. I know this particular section has plenty of entries, but they do not.
2010-05-05 [Aeolynn]: its only 15 days...
2010-05-06 [Daisy_Sandybanks]: Entry taken down.
I never saved the original copy, thus I can not revise it.
Another time, perhaps.
2010-05-06 [Alexi Ice]: Alright, that's fine. Sorry. Keep an eye out for the next contest.
2010-05-21 [Aeolynn]: Agh... finally! So sorry this took so long... I'm decently new to PS still...
2010-05-25 [jaraden]: brilliant art here! you know, i hadn't given much thought to centaurs, they seem so cliched, but i gotta say i've been checkin in now and then and giving them another shot.. i do actually have a couple of centaur images as i work on one of my gods.. perhaps i'll dig one out and submit it.. but then, is this contest still open i wonder???
2010-05-25 [Triola]: It actually closed 5 days ago, so you're out of luck, I'm afraid :)
2010-05-25 [jaraden]: ha, typical... that is just my luck.. o well, when do we get to vote? do let me know please!
2010-05-25 [Alexi Ice]: Thank you to everyone who entered.
2010-06-16 [Serwa]: No problemo!
Just like Jaraden I am also curious to when the voting starts!
Is there any date set for that or should we just continue being patient?
2010-06-16 [SilverFire]: It will be soon. :3
2010-06-16 [Chimes]: Voting started. :)
2011-01-07 [Thistlewood]: I think voting has been forgotten!
2011-01-07 [jaraden]: it's been a while since the voting opened, i'm wondering who's gonna win is all! great entries though!!! glad i checked it out again!
2011-02-08 [Kuramasgirl]: I think this contest is a bit past due to be ended. o.o Does someone need to be reminded?
2011-02-09 [Alexi Ice]: It says it is closed....The ECM people have been a little busy. I apologize.
2011-02-09 [Zab]: You mean it doesn't really need half a year to collect votes? :P
2011-02-10 [Kuramasgirl]: No problem, I was just wondering. :)
2011-02-10 [Alexi Ice]: It might! Hahaha!
2011-02-10 [jaraden]: it's good to get reminded once and a while! hell i need constant reminders these days!!! ha ha!!!
2012-10-20 [Zab]: Yay, I won! ^__^
2012-10-24 [Zab]: Erhm.. thank you? :P
