Thank you to all that contributed!

<news:[Vampire@wiki] Photo winner!>

By [Tableau Vivant]


'Atypical' Vampire photos can be viewed on ECM Vampire Photo Related.

A little story about Vampire's by [Hedda] can be viewed here: Vampire Photo Story

Thank you to all of you who didn't get to the final! The crew tried to do its best to select the best images that can be the top photo for Vampire, but it was a tough job and it's hard to know exactly how a typical vampire should look like as they either tend to look like humans or not appear in photo sessions...


ECM Vampire Photo

Submissions of photo-only artwork images. Read the image-rules on Elftown Creature Marathon.
ECM Vampire

Add your image and a link to your house here. Please note that the image has to be uploaded to Elftown. Ask [Hedda] for permission to upload a huge version of it directly to this wiki-page!

Upload a great looking photograph of a typical vampire or a realistically looking photo-manipulation or a dressed up human in case you can't find a real vampire... that can be used in the texts about vampire(s). Remember that the winning image will for very long time be the global definition of what a Vampire is, so it better be professional and oriented around the theme of Vampires. See competitions if you want a less serious competition.

Except for the normal badges and stuff, the winner will get credits on what we hope will be the best Vampire-page on the entire Internet.

Insert images, your name, and corresponding number here, after the last, previous entry.

1. [Saya`]
Manip of myself. Hope it's okay

2. [de Morte]
New Simple Manipulation of me, added background.

3. [Jewl]
Eh... no fangs, but perhaps the undead factor makes up for it. Oh, and NO photo-manipulation done.

4. [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]
A bit of manipulation - photo of [Beki in Wonderland] taken by me and used with permission of model.

5. [Quellealcar]
Photomanip on colors only in this picture of myself, just to bring out the 'deathly pale' quality more, and to make it look a little more surreal. the fangs are not part of the photomanip, they're removable tooth caps.

6. [*micky*]

7. [maluna]

8. [Vampires Anonymous]
Prey targeted

9. [Atayemi]

10. [Hedda]
Vampire pretending to be a Halloween guest at the local nightclub. Trying to take a bite of Lilith, without knowing that it's too strong for him. 

11. [Rasperel]

12. [naru bloodwind]

13. [Jitter]
Me in the vampire role biting [Rochala]'s neck. Neck used with permission, photo taken with self timer. Diminutive Manip only on teeth.

14. [blu.nation]
So I, uh, feel a bit silly putting this up. xD

15. [NexusGecko]

16. [Land_of_Linden]
An infinite gaze, a final breath

17. [Lakayana]
Sudden photo shot by prey, though prey was still hit...

18. [FetishFaerie]
Model & photographer are me. 
A more.. colourful (but still bloody) rendition of a vampire.

19. [Sir. Robert]
Modelling + Photographing done by myself, a touch here and there in Photoshop :P
"classic vampire" (or at least what I recall from old movies)

20. [Veriale]
Photoshopped picture of me.
Who said Vampires must be gory and ugly all the time?

21. [Artemis Riddle]
Modelling, photographing and photoshop done by me.
Might be changed later. :o

22. [Mania Rage]
photo, manip, model, all me. Boredom is a curse. A fun, fun curse. (Lyrics - Adema "Immortal")

23. [Tableau Vivant]
Photoshopped a tad, somewhat showing the frustration of Vamps.

24. [Otaku]
Mostly photoshopped

25. [Iske] Vampires sometimes appear in the shape of a pet

2007-03-30 [OceanBorn]: Zombies are the walking dead, vampires are immortal therefore are technically somewhere inbetween ;)

2007-03-30 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: true with the minor differences that vampire's have free will and need blood to sustain their existance whereas the zombie is mindless and doesn't need any sustance.. except brains depending on which zombie definition you prefer!

2007-03-30 [OceanBorn]: Indeedy do.

2007-03-31 [xido]: All these philosophies on the Undead race of vampire should go to ECM Vampire Text because we badly want your help before the contest session is over! ;D

2007-03-31 [Shooting Star Shadow]: lol

2007-03-31 [Shooting Star Shadow]: -tackles and glomps [Diiwica]- took ya butt long enough

2007-03-31 [Diiwica]: Yeah because I have no good pics

2007-03-31 [Shooting Star Shadow]: bull you just don't think you do, I've taken plenty of good ones

2007-04-02 [OceanBorn]: [Pinup_princess]...tis a nice photo but maybe you'd like to crop that white away ;)

2007-04-02 [Pinup_princess]: yeah but i don't know how any chance you cud help please sorry this is the first comp i have enterd

2007-04-02 [Artsieladie]: If not, I can. :D 

2007-04-03 [OceanBorn]: <img300*0:> there u go.

2007-04-03 [Artsieladie]: That's very nice of you, [OceanBorn]. Thanks for your help. :D

2007-04-05 [xido]: Indeed. Added for [Pinup_princess]' entry.

I would like to instigate some discussions on the artworks. I will begin with color. I see a theme in color use. What is this theme? Black, white, red. Do we associate these colors with vampires?

The change in color comes from [Vampires Anonymous]' hair color, [Diiwica]'s hair attire, and [Pinup_princess]' clothing.

I also enjoy the texture included on [Saya`]'s image manipulation.

Are there any other ideas, comments, or questions that would create a little professional discussion on the works?

2007-04-05 [Vampires Anonymous]: I love the blood effect on [Saya`]'s image. I wish I could have made my photo look more vampire like, but I think we get enough of the red eyes and sly fangs approach.

2007-04-05 [Saya`]: Thank you :) [Vampires Anonymous] I think your entry does have that vampire feel to it.. I feel mine is so..Standard..At least yours is original

2007-04-05 [Vampire Akis]: [Hedda]'s vampire is raising his middle finger. *giggles* <img:44166_1164144892.gif>

2007-04-05 [Shooting Star Shadow]: [Saya`] your entry has more of the dark, destructive side... while a lot of the others went for the less blood drooling side ^.^

2007-04-05 [Vampires Anonymous]: *inclines head* your welcome and thank you, [Saya`]. i agree with [Shooting Star Shadow] there is a lot of drooling going on in the other pictures, but i like the effects. good job guys. i love theses photos!

2007-04-05 [Pinup_princess]: thank you it's great of you guys to do that for me thanks again

2007-04-05 [Shooting Star Shadow]: mine would be more vampiric then werewolf if I had my laptop back >.<.... >.> evil hard drive

2007-04-05 [Diiwica]: I don't think vampire's have a color association, i mean I have read books were they walk around in light and just look like their skin is a glass dolls. I have read it to were they are ravers and other things like that. so It is hard t day what they wear for sure, that is unless you look at their personality

2007-04-07 [xido]: Wow, great thoughts from all of you. I am impressed with the discussions here. Great work!

Discussion topic #2:
Choose your favorite work. Don't tell which one it is.
Choose one of the following Art Elements or Principles, and tell us how the work you like best displays this asset:
Space, Line, Shape, Form, Value, Color, Texture, Balance, Symmetry, Space Division & Composition, Unity (Reptition, Variety, Rhythm), Emphasis & Focal Point, 3 Dimensions, & Photo-realism

Tell us about this aspect of the work. Respond to others' posts if you can, as well. ;)

2007-04-09 [OceanBorn]: Whilst on the subjects of what exactly a vampire entails, I thought you might find this comment, from wikipedia, interesting... "Some cultures also have stories of non-human vampires, including real animals such as bats, dogs, spiders, and mythical creatures such as the chupacabra."

2007-04-11 [Jewl]: I love how the vampire is flicking the camera off... ^-^ Nice work, [Hedda].

2007-04-12 [Rasperel]: I am having trouble adding my picture can someone help me please

2007-04-12 [Hedda]: [Rasperel]: The problem was that you can't have [] in the wanted file-name. Kind of a bug in Elftown.

2007-04-26 [FetishFaerie]: Aww, man.. how many entries can we submit? I have three photographs I'm struggling to choose from, all from different sessions. (They're all blood-drooly. lol But pretty!)

2007-04-27 [Artsieladie]: From Elftown Creature Marathon page...
The Image Rules:</i>

<i>Exceptions might be offered if there is a valid reason for it. But if you do submit more than one image, you will greatly lower your chance of winning, as the votes for your style will be spread out on two entries.

...It is assumed that this rule:
...applies per category. Therefore, a photo in the ECM Vampire Art AND an art entry in here, ECM Vampire Photo is OK. :O

2007-04-30 [FetishFaerie]: Thank you. ;)

2007-04-30 [Artsieladie]: YW! :)

2007-05-04 [Hedda]: <img100*0:> is just wonderful!

2007-05-05 [Jitter]: *blush* Thanks

2007-05-09 [Tableau Vivant]: I've added my picture ;)

2007-05-09 [OceanBorn]: Tableau, that's fantastic. I especially like the attire, very vampiresque :)

2007-05-09 [Tableau Vivant]: thank you!!!!!!!
I actually bought that for my prom. But I didn't want to go in an ordinary suit. =)

2007-05-09 [OceanBorn]: and who could blame you. Actually if I'd went to prom I'd have too, wanted to wear something different. Anywho, your entry is very impressive. Me likes :)

2007-05-09 [Tableau Vivant]: Hehe =P
Thank you.
I was like: ooh! contest! must..make..picture..NOW! ..^^

2007-05-09 [OceanBorn]: Yeah, Same :P But I realised my photo wasn't in with the slightest chance of winning so I'm in the vampire art comp now. ^^

2007-05-09 [Tableau Vivant]: Hehe, I saw your art entry! It looks really nice! =)

2007-05-09 [OceanBorn]: Thanks, I don't care about winning though. I got mods choice on EW so I'm content forever now I think :P

2007-05-09 [Tableau Vivant]: Hahah
A mods choice on EW! Very well done!
I still want to join EW once too. I actually stumbled on Elftown via Elfwood! ..But first I have to get a new scanner. The one I now have is too small for the size of my artwork. >.<'

2007-05-09 [OceanBorn]: Luckily for me I'm okay at painting, my drawings seem to have endless problems in them and theyre harder to fix than digital paintings are.
And thanks, though you don't have to post straight away upon joining EW ;)

2007-05-09 [Tableau Vivant]: I just looked at the works you have on the wiki links in your house. I really like them! The expressions are really awesome!

2007-05-09 [OceanBorn]: Thanks, I'm a bit new at this those are the only pics I've painted so I'm working on improving..

2007-05-09 [Tableau Vivant]: Well, I've been drawing for about 3 years now, and I still suck at lots of things. Mostly hands, symmetry and so forth =P

2007-05-09 [OceanBorn]: Yeah, I guess you're lucky that alot of things people chose to draw don't need symmetry though ! :P But I understand I always screw up the tiny things that ruin the rest of the picture..

2007-05-09 [Tableau Vivant]: Hehe, indeed! I have the same problem! For me, those things that ruin it, are mostly hands and feet. But I found a solution! [Hedda] has feet and hand photos on a couple of wikis. Those were a great help to me already!

2007-05-09 [OceanBorn]: Ah yeah, referances always comein handy. i msut say my imagination doesn't do me justice unless I have referances to be included.. anyway good luck with those hands and feet :P

2007-05-09 [Tableau Vivant]: Hehehe, I always ruin hands and feet =P They look severely broken and smashed mostly =P But thank you. And good luck to you with improving your digital painting! =D I'll keep on checking out your works.

2007-05-09 [OceanBorn]: Thanks ! And good luck with the comp ;)

2007-05-09 [Tableau Vivant]: Haha, thank you very much =)

2007-05-09 [naru bloodwind]: i agree, your entry is very great. too sad, that your vampirefoto was taken by daylight :(

2007-05-10 [OceanBorn]: It's cetrainly very different, we have vivant's light picture and here your very scary monster of a vampire. Both very good.. it's getting so very interesting ;D

2007-05-10 [naru bloodwind]: i tried to photoshop the background. but i only managed to dissolve the power outlet xD
wasnt able to turn it into night. and replacing the background would look too artificial.
but i just read a pratchett book in which a vampire was walking by daytime. let him be a daywalker too

2007-05-10 [OceanBorn]: Yeah, but I know what you mean the wine and clothing would look good by lamplight rather than sunlight still.

2007-05-10 [Tableau Vivant]: See ;) not all vampires roam the night.
But indeed, I also think it's somewhat different. but I'm already getting too little sleep, so I don't really have time.

2007-05-10 [OceanBorn]: Yeah I guess the big question is what vampires realy are, there's alot of diverse myths about them which is good - it means more diverse entries ^

2007-05-11 [Tableau Vivant]: indeed!! =D

2007-05-20 [Land_of_Linden]: I've never entered one of these contests before, I could use some help. How on earth do I make my photo show up in photo form rather then a link. Thank-you

2007-05-20 [Artsieladie]: When you post the link's address or location, you need to add <img: to the beginning & a > at the end (image tag). If you're not sure what I mean, look at the editing side of this page where you placed your entry. You will see the difference from the way you posted & what I added. :)

2007-05-20 [Land_of_Linden]: That's very helpful, and very much appreciated. 

2007-05-20 [Artsieladie]: Okie-dokie. You're welcome. :)

2007-05-24 [maluna]: i love your mask land_of_linden were did you get it

2007-05-31 [Lakayana]: Hope I'm there? Looks scary...

2007-05-31 [OceanBorn]: Scary? Agreed..

2007-06-02 [FetishFaerie]: Argh.. I had a really hard time picking which vampire photo to use. I've done three seperate photo sessions involving fake blood, and I have a favorite from each. :P

2007-06-02 [Tableau Vivant]: Very nice change to [Atayemi], and very nice entry to [FetishFaerie]. I like the blood and the look on your face =]

2007-06-02 [Atayemi]: Thanks. :D

2007-06-13 [Artsieladie]: Decided to number the entries to keep track of how many there are. 23! Doing great! :D

2007-06-13 [xido]: Thank you, Sharon. ;)

2007-06-13 [Artsieladie]: No problemo! lol 

2007-06-14 [Artsieladie]: [†Forgotten Agony†], your entry has to be uploaded to Elftown. :P

2007-06-15 [†Forgotten Agony†]: i did upload it to elftown but it was really small.. and i mean really small =(

2007-06-15 [Artsieladie]: Do you have the "upload to wiki priv"? If not, you might want to ask [Charybdis] or [Sunrose] about this. If you have this priv, you can upload to a wiki page, instead of just through your house. Larger images can be uploaded to wiki pages. I could do it for you this once, but in the meanwhile, you can ask, as I've mentioned previously & then you'll be all set for the next time. :) There, done.

2007-06-15 [†Forgotten Agony†]: thank you

2007-06-15 [Artsieladie]: No problem. YW! :)

2007-07-04 [de Morte]: FYI: I changed my photo.

2007-07-11 [noskari]: the're all like *drools a little*

2007-07-17 [xido]: there are two which are creepy... in the not-so-dark-and-scary-vampire sort.... I mean like, just plain creepy. The negative image "grrr! my friend on a bad day" image is like... yikes! Wowza! :S

And who's the guy with his eyelids flipped inside out? That is always so freakish when people do that... I mean, he has teeth, but...  ???

Any other ideas on this?

2007-07-21 [Pinup_princess]: sorry i'm not talking much lol my mums wedding has just gone and it was gaaaa and stuff like that because it was gothisc so lots of work on that wedding and my sister's is nxt saturday so i'm working on that one aswell i'm always the bride pa it's anoying so sorry i have'nt talked much, how are you guys anyway??

2007-07-26 [Mania Rage]: yargggg....howdy!!

2007-08-05 [Ryven]: hey whats up love tha vampire theme  it is awsome well I'm off to slaughter billons seeya

2007-08-07 [ririmu_chan]: I think someone should enter a picture of a watermelon vampire just for kicks. If you don’t know what a watermelon vampire is I will tell you. Back in the old days, before alchemy was so good, it was not a good idea to keep a watermelon in your house for more then ten days or it would start to grow vain under the surface of the skin. They were called vampire watermelons and doomed anyone who ate them to a life of vampirism after the life with the living. at least the melon couldnt eat you. lol

2007-08-09 [Mania Rage]: um wow. a bit bored were we?

2007-08-14 [Killopkie]: Everyone back then was on drugs. "Woh, dude, that watermelon has a vein in it, I bet if I like, took a bite out of it I would like, turn into a vampire. That would be crazy."

2007-08-14 [Jewl]: or... hey, that juice looks like blood!

2007-08-23 [Just Dan]: i hope i win

2007-08-23 [Artsieladie]: Two things, [Just Dan]. First, from the top of this page: Please note that the image has to be uploaded to Elftown. Like the other entries posted, please thumbnail it to the 300 size. Second, contests are really not about the winning, but look at entering as a chance to show others your best creativity. By expecting or holding high hopes to win, you open yourself up to disappointment. You may or may not. If you do, think of it as a nice & pleasant outcome/surprise, but good luck to you, anyway! :D

2007-08-23 [Just Dan]: sorry about that i will changed them asap

2007-08-23 [Artsieladie]: Wow! That was quick! Thank you! :D

2007-08-23 [Just Dan]: no problem. im good at fixing codes fast. lol. sorry it took so long but i was writing something.

2007-08-24 [Artsieladie]: Hmmm...I often have several irons in the fire all at the same time. :P

2007-08-24 [Shooting Star Shadow]: WooHoo -plays with the fire- ^_^

2007-08-26 [Sunrose]: Some entries were moved to ECM vampire photo related.
This contest is about vampires, photo's of costumes or goth outfits do not make you a vampire (even if it looks very nice :p). We have to be able to look at a picture and see without a doubt that the subject is vampires :)

2007-08-26 [Tableau Vivant]: Entered with a new picture, since the first was moved to ECM vampire photo related. Hope that this one is okay.

2007-08-26 [Sunrose]: Yes :)

2007-08-26 [Tableau Vivant]: hurray! =D

2007-08-26 [Sunrose]: Hehehe :P
It's kind of funny how no one commented on the issue that you can't actually take a picture of a vampire =P

2007-08-26 [Tableau Vivant]: Haha =P
Indeed, but it's good that everyone did think about not making a photo with a reflection in it ;)

2007-08-26 [Sunrose]: Not sure they actually thought about it, otherwise they would have also thought about the impossibility to photograph vampires..I'd think :P

2007-08-26 [Tableau Vivant]: Hehehe =P yeah ;)

2007-09-01 [Hedda]: These pictures are starting to get really scary... <img:stuff/mood11-gif.gif>

2007-09-02 [Tableau Vivant]: =D!

2007-09-02 [de Morte]: Don't worry [Hedda] I wont bite you ^^

2007-09-03 [Vampire Akis]: :-S *notices my entry is missing* May I ask why my picture is deleted? ^^"

2007-09-03 [Sunrose]: Some entries were moved to ECM vampire photo related.

2007-09-04 [Vampire Akis]: oh alright.

2007-09-06 [Mania Rage]: Rwar! I'm a vampie! *shoots noobish self*

2007-09-24 [Hedda]: Nice one, [Iske], but it's an artistic photo manipulation and not a "realistic photo" and therefore not going to get to the final even if it's a nice piece. I guess that should have been more clear in the rules here, but it's written on ECM vampire.

2007-09-24 [Sunrose]: I'm also not sure if the reaper in the left bottom corner is own made..

2007-09-25 [Iske]: Is this one correct by the rules?

2007-09-25 [Hedda]: It's not a typical vampire. It's a vampire cat, which is pretty cool, welcome and maybe useful on our vampire pages, but it can't win as a typical vampire photo, of course.

2007-09-25 [Artsieladie]: Of course, you could make yourself as a vampire, as well as the kitty. I would think so, anyway. Just a suggestion. :P

2007-09-26 [Artsieladie]: The kitty is 'vampired' enough. You could 'vampire' yourself, but just not so much that it loses the 'realistic' feel. :P
Just a reminder: EACH MEMBER MAY SUBMIT ONE (1) ENTRY PER CREATURE PER ART OR PHOTO CATEGORY. Exceptions might be offered if there is a valid reason for it. But if you do submit more than one image, you will greatly lower your chance of winning, as the votes for your style will be spread out on two entries. - From: Elftown Creature Marathon.

2007-09-26 [Artsieladie]: I'd say so, as long as you maintain the realism & it's ALL your own. :P

2007-09-26 [Iske]: hope to get it right this time the Vampires pet (owner) lol

2007-09-26 [Artsieladie]: It looks more fitting to me. :P)

2007-09-29 [Cia_mar]: i hope that mine fits the theme correctly,, this is the original photo, un-maniped:
the make up was fun to do... but taking my own pics was hard! lol... i have a whole wiki filled with possible candidates for manipulation ...cia but this one won the toss up

2007-09-29 [Artsieladie]: A Cia vampire! lol Looks "vampirish" to me. :)

2007-09-29 [Iske]: Vamp in dutch means HOT chick lol

2007-09-29 [Sunrose]: In English too :P

2007-09-29 [Artsieladie]: It does? Didn't know this. *chuckles* Learn something every day! :D

2007-09-29 [Sunrose]: According to Google, it also has that definition in English :P

2007-09-29 [Artsieladie]: Cool! :)

2007-09-29 [Cia_mar]: glad that it fits the bill... i know remo, liked it, he thought i looked pretty hot too!! lol

2007-09-29 [Artsieladie]: he he "Vamp Cia!" <img:stuff/cheshmak.gif>

2007-09-29 [Cia_mar]: well i Do like to bite... a little...*smirks*

2007-10-05 [Artsieladie]: [Mack], you don't have a larger version of your image? :P

2007-10-05 [Mack]: sure

2007-10-05 [Artsieladie]: That size is a little better. :P)

2007-10-18 [Synsae]: ok, stupid question (yes, I have read the rules) can I submit a photo that I took of myself... when the photo was photoshopped by another person?

2007-10-18 [Artsieladie]: Hmmm...well, this would be considered a work by 2 people, your photo & their digital manipulation. My guess, either submit it under your name, but with the person's permission that digitally edited it AND give credit to that person or make it a co-entry from you both. But...I'll ask to be sure, & there'll be a responding, more definite answer/comment here. :P

2007-10-19 [Hedda]: [Synsae]: If you submit it together or with each others' permission, it should be quite OK.

2007-10-19 [Synsae]: so basically... one of us should post it... and give credit to the other for what they did with the photo?

2007-10-19 [Artsieladie]: ...Or you may submit it as a co-entry, with both of your names & obviously with both of your permissions. Thanks, [Hedda]. :)

2007-10-19 [Chrysilla]: I told him to submit it under his name, I edited the pic for this, not for my personal glory >.>

2007-10-19 [Artsieladie]: OK, very good. Thanks. :)

2007-11-01 [Artsieladie]: [CaRa83], do you have a larger picture? :P

2007-11-02 [CaRa83]: i have way more than just this 1 i was at school so didnt have all the good ones. i might resubmit others not sure. y do u need a bigger?

2007-11-02 [Artsieladie]: Hmm...On Elftown Creature Marathon there's a rule that states:
Exceptions might be offered if there is a valid reason for it. But if you do submit more than one image, you will greatly lower your chance of winning, as the votes for your style will be spread out on two entries.

Large images (photos) are easier to see, especially detail. :P

2007-11-02 [CaRa83]: ok sorry thanks i just did alot of good ones. hard to pick.

2007-11-03 [Artsieladie]: I understand. I was in this same position in the Pegasus art competition. :/ I left both of yours up so you could make your own choice. ;P

2007-11-05 [CaRa83]: thank you. appreciate it. it was really me with fake fangs i bought. love vampires ; ]

2007-11-05 [Artsieladie]: Most welcome. ;) My fav's among the creatures to be featured are Pegasus, unicorns & dragons. :)

2007-11-05 [CaRa83]: yes i love all those as well. i have really cool unicorn picture on my wall and dragon jewelry n stuff. ; ]

2007-11-06 [tristesseract]: Some classy work here. Well done, people

2007-11-13 [Hedda]: [..majo..]: The image has to be uploaded to Elftown! I fixed your image now.

2007-11-14 [..majo..]: Thank you [Hedda]!

2007-11-14 [Hedda]: Soon deadline now! <img:>

2007-11-14 [Chrysilla]: Tomorrow at what hour? (GMT+...?) So that I know if I have to hurry up or can wait till tomorrow, as I don't have everything i need for the photos yet...

2007-11-14 [Hedda]: I'm sure we can wait a day extra for you if you have something worth waiting for.

2007-11-14 [Chrysilla]: Well I'm trying to have the perfect picture... But maybe I won't need extra-time if I know the exact hour of the deadline :)

2007-11-14 [Chrysilla]: Okay, newsflash, my photos suck (well most of them) because of an impatient photgrapher, so i need to know the hour of the deadline so i know how much time i have to save at least one photo.

2007-11-14 [Sunrose]: Until tomorrow midnight :)

2007-11-14 [Chrysilla]: Thank you :)
Errr... I don't want to be annoying, but... whose midnight? Greenwich midnight, Sweden midnight, New York... arghhh my nerves will collapse soon... sorry if i'm a bug.

2007-11-14 [Artsieladie]: Sweden's/Elftown's time. :P

2007-11-14 [Chrysilla]: Okay, thank you very much! *gives chocolate to everyone*

2007-11-15 [Artsieladie]: YW! :) Mmm..yum, chocolate! Thanks! *let's it melt in mouth* :D

2007-11-15 [Chrysilla]: Yay! I got a good entry! *dances happily*

2007-11-16 [xido]: What an amazing amount of impressive entries, everyone.
Great job, and best of luck to all of those who entered!

2007-11-16 [Chrysilla]: Thank you! Good luck everyone!

2007-11-16 [Iske]: thx Artsie for fixing it... you're the best

2007-11-16 [Artsieladie]: You're welcome! Glad to help, dear! <img:stuff/cheshmak.gif><img:stuff/mood10_gif.gif>

2007-11-16 [Linderel]: Elftown's clock goes by the UTC, not Sweden's time. :P

2007-11-16 [Artsieladie]: I thought so, but I couldn't think of the letters, exactly, so I added "Elftown's" time. lol 

2007-11-18 [Chrysilla]: So when do we have the results? ^^

2007-11-18 [Sunrose]: It's in progress :)

2007-11-18 [Chrysilla]: Nice <img:44166_1164145221.gif>
Can't wait!

2007-11-18 [de Morte]: Yay!
*sits around "stalking" this page more*

2007-11-26 [Saya`]: Waaah..This is taking too long! I'm currious! xD

2007-11-26 [Artsieladie]: I know, but remember, Rome wasn't built in a day! There'll be some results soon. This is a busy time of the year for many in their 'real' lives. *huggles*

2007-11-27 [de Morte]: *paces*

2007-11-27 [Synsae]: *taps his fingers on his desk*

2007-11-27 [Chrysilla]: *walks around the room, and around, and around*

2007-11-27 [Linderel]: Patience, please. :P

2007-11-27 [Chrysilla]: *sits down, closes her eyes and mutters "zen... stay zen..."

2007-11-28 [Cia_mar]: heheheh....

2007-12-03 [Hedda]: I just had to write a little story vampire photo story

2007-12-03 [Chrysilla]: No one said that fangs were mandatory! But all the pics you chose for the poll have pics, while there are here some images way better! You should've said you want fangs in the rules, so people don't work for hours for nothing!

2007-12-03 [Sunrose]: The rules state though that typical vampire images were wanted, one would have to immediately see that it's a vampire..

2007-12-03 [Chrysilla]: Okay, you moved away those that didn't look like vampires, why didn't you keep doing it? This way I could've known you want fangs, and add them, and have my work appreciated right now.

2007-12-03 [Artsieladie]: Upload a great looking photograph of a typical vampire or a realistically looking photo-manipulation or a dressed up human in case you can't find a real vampire...
I think here lies part of the problem, but I also think, that no matter how we word what we're looking for, there will still remain a certain amount of each individual's interpretation. This is NOT Sunny's fault. The poll resulted in the different ways people view or think vampires should look like. Apparently, when a vampire is envisioned, it's done so in a variety of ways. For example, when I look at #'s 10 & 13, there's no doubt in my mind that they are depicting vampires, but this is just my opinion. :PP

2007-12-03 [Chrysilla]: I didn't say it was Sunny's fault, but as the staff already removed pics that didn't show vampires, they should have kept doing it, so that I could knew something was wrong about mine.
And rules say "great looking photograph" - don't tell me #17 for example is a great image...

2007-12-03 [Acronymous]: Another example of art being a subjective craft :) It is never easy to discard entries. In this case, measuring "vampyriness" according to objective criteria is not easy, but classifying entries according to subjective criteria can also be prone to error, or at least debate XD But it is always like that :) I know the crew does not judge based on personal bias, so what's done is done and it is no one's fault. I'll add huge fangs next time XD Or some flying atypical Alucard XD

2007-12-03 [Artsieladie]: I didn't say you did, but I just wanted it to be made clear. It wasn't pointed directly at you & I certainly apologize, if it seemed this way. I think there are some wrinkles that still need to be worked out in these photo sessions. :PP I will say that [Hedda] doesn't want anyone's efforts to go unnoticed or to be discarded, so there are &/or will be pages to accommodate everyone's contributions.

2007-12-03 [Hedda]: After speaking a little to [Chrysilla], I realize that in next contest we (as in everyone watching the contest, but firstly we contest bosses and helpers) should be more active with feedback to the submitters before going to the final. Here I tried to stay away as I was one of the submitters, which I guess was a little stupid as I still could help others. I'm just not that comfortable with telling people what they do wrong though. <img:stuff/sh-gif.gif>

2007-12-03 [Artsieladie]: This sounds good. :) 

I'm just not that comfortable with telling people what they do wrong though.
Me, either! <img:stuff/sh-gif.gif>

2007-12-03 [Chrysilla]: I know the feeling, but I would have prefered being told in this context...

2007-12-03 [Artsieladie]: I think part of the problem lies in finding just the right words to say in the rules, so that there's not such a variance in their interpretation. We try to keep the rules sufficient, but not too lengthy, b/c many people don't want to read 'lengthy rules'. :P

2007-12-03 [Sunrose]: Argh, that is exactly what I bitched to you about last week [Hedda] ([477752 (Unknown or private posting)] & [477861 (Unknown or private posting)]).
We tried as best we could to sort out the entries by the 'typical vampire' rule, but you were the only one who really knew what kind of entries you wanted to see.
So you should realise that it's you who needs to be active here, we already were.

It's better to tell people what they did wrong before than after the deadline!

2007-12-04 [Mania Rage]: I shoulda made bigger fangs. XD

2007-12-08 [FetishFaerie]: Yes.. feedback before the poll was created would have been much appreciated. I've been waiting for months to see a poll created for voting, only to find that my image didn't make the cut. Rather dissappointing.

2007-12-09 [Cia_mar]: sometimes i thing it would be neat to know the reasons why our pics dont make it... so that with the constructive critisism, we can improve for the next time.... i like feedback like that... other wise it is hard to know what to do to get better!

2007-12-12 [fire opal]: the teeth that haven't edited in what make are they?

you see out of all the ones i have tried in the past (and i have tried many different brands) i would deffinatley reconmend scarecrow fangs. check out for them

2007-12-13 [..majo..]: The teeth [skittels] used came from a store in Rotterdam called Black Widow....I have no idea of the brand or anything..,.I'll ask her later and update :P

2007-12-13 [skittels]: nah I used the teeth I already had, I got them from a carnaval shop but I lost the little box so I have no idea wich brand it is...

2007-12-13 [..majo..]: Thanks for sorting that out sweety :P

2007-12-13 [fire opal]: hmm ok then well as i said i would happily reconmend the guys i named. their sevice is second to non and well the teeth are all in all cheap.

2009-02-15 [Mania Rage]: scarecrow is usually a popular brand that makes fake fangs in varied colors and sizes.
