2009-08-21 [Kuramasgirl]: Hey look, super crappy badges! >_>
2009-08-21 [Akayume]: They are not super crappy. XP
2009-08-21 [Kuramasgirl]: XD You're just being nice.
2009-08-21 [Akayume]: I like them actually! And I happen to adore your handwriting so there. I like them. XD Besides,it's better than a white square that says "winner" on it. XP
2009-08-21 [Kuramasgirl]: XD I could never do a white square with winner on it. My muse would murder me.
But thank you, lol.
2009-08-22 [Akayume]: You are welcome. :D
2009-08-22 [SlightlySpiked]: those are some neat badges!!!!!
2009-08-22 [Kuramasgirl]: Aw, thank you. :3
2009-08-23 [~Valkyrie~]: Yay! Congrats Akayume and Annette! *smiles*
2009-08-25 [SlightlySpiked]: anytime^^ congradulation
2009-08-25 [Akayume]: Thank you! Everyone did well though. I was very sure I was going to loose when I entered because there were so many awesome entries. :D
2009-08-25 [dancingsheep]: Congrats!
2009-08-25 [Iske]: congrats !!! well done
2009-08-25 [moira hawthorne]: hell I enter these contests just for the fun of it... winning is neither here or there
2009-08-25 [Aquariuscelesti a]: thanks yall! its my first contest here.....so thanks for making it count for me^_^ everyone did so well^_^
and thanks for the badge kura! it looks great!^_^
2009-08-25 [SlightlySpiked]: XD
2009-08-27 [Kuramasgirl]: :3
2009-08-27 [Akayume]: omggg. I am excited! :D
2009-08-27 [Kuramasgirl]: Hurray! :D
2009-08-27 [moira hawthorne]: ok for rainbow... are we suppose to keep the correct order...??? not just have them all mis mashed thru out the image... b/c than it could be just a normal full colour image
2009-08-27 [Kuramasgirl]: Well, since this is a contest to display the specific colors, I would think the classic rainbow colors would be the focus of the image, not every color in the spectrum. I'm not looking for the shades in between so much as the colors you'd see in an actual rainbow (idealistic with bright colors or realistic with pastel colors, either works). I would prefer if the colors were kept in order simply because that would make it much easier to determine whether the theme's been followed, but if anyone has a problem with that for their specific image they're welcome to message me before they enter it and make sure. :)
2009-08-27 [moira hawthorne]: ok... =D... btw I foresee some gay pride themed images...
2009-08-27 [Kuramasgirl]: xD I don't mind. Not the point of the contest, but I certainly won't mind seeing them. :)
2009-08-27 [SlightlySpiked]: nice choice for the new contest kura!!!
2009-08-27 [Kuramasgirl]: Thank you. :D
2009-08-28 [moira hawthorne]: interesting... but I like to see them all fuzzy soft... or all strong and crisp... just my feelin of it...
2009-08-29 [SlightlySpiked]: XD
2009-08-29 [dancingsheep]: Thank you! I wish I could say it was naturally in all of those pictures. Lens filters in photo editors, anyone?
2009-08-30 [Cillamoon]: LOVE the images Jane! Tre cool!!!
2009-08-30 [SlightlySpiked]: i love the light pics!!!!!!!!!!
2009-08-30 [moira hawthorne]: they remind me of a photo I entered in a previous colour contest...
2009-08-31 [SlightlySpiked]: oh?
2009-08-31 [moira hawthorne]: yeah... tryin to find it... the problem is ... where did I put it... been here over 4 years... i got image stuck all over ET
2009-08-31 [moira hawthorne]: HA! found it... 2. [moira hawthorne] 'Kaleidescope Vision'
no photoshop used to get colours... I had two sets of those glasses... one my son is wearing, the other I held in front of the camera... so it saw the same thing he was
2009-08-31 [dancingsheep]: Moira, that is so awesome!
2009-08-31 [dancingsheep]: :] Thank you! It was POURING rain.
2009-08-31 [moira hawthorne]: I wish I had a pair of them now... but you know kid's toys... lost or broken always
2009-09-01 [~Valkyrie~]: *laughs* Yep, always.
2009-09-01 [SlightlySpiked]: that is an awesum pic!!!
2009-09-01 [moira hawthorne]: thx u.... you know what id like to do...??? photograph some oil spills after a rainshower on a ash volt parking lot... yup... some yummy rainbow swirls...
2009-09-01 [~Valkyrie~]: ooohhhh, very true...
2009-09-01 [SlightlySpiked]: that sounds like a great idea
2009-09-01 [Linderel]: Why'd you change the title, Elin? :O
2009-09-03 [Easterling]: Because I thought I spelled it wrongly, after looking at the wiki's title. :P "color" is another of those words I never seem to get right...
2009-09-03 [Linderel]: Colour = British, color = American.
2009-09-03 [dancingsheep]: I am American, but I prefer COLOUR. XD
2009-09-03 [Linderel]: Good for you :D
2009-09-03 [Future Dictator]: I'm an american and i spell it colour cause my highschool english teacher was british and she got me all confused :D
2009-09-03 [~Valkyrie~]: I'm American too, but I agree, I prefer colour...and grey. *smiles* It's the "true" spelling, and it's something that not many Americans do. :p
2009-09-03 [Akayume]: I agree!
2009-09-03 [Cillamoon]: I use both colour and color depending on what I'm talking about.
2009-09-03 [Aquariuscelesti a]: lol, just spell it however youre used to spelling it. i use color... thats just how i roll=p so pick one and stick with it^_^
2009-09-03 [Kuramasgirl]: XD I really do prefer colour, but I used color for the title of the contest because I didn't want someone coming up to me and going, "You're American, not European, spell it like you're supposed to! D8<"
Silly, I know. xD But I think about these things for some reason.
Also, I tend to use color in my regular writing to please the Spellcheck Gods on my computer.
2009-09-03 [Aquariuscelesti a]: lol, nice. i like colour, but i do prefer color becuase thats what im used to^_^
wow...isnt it funny how were having a full on conversation over A SIMPLE WORD? HAHA
2009-09-03 [Linderel]: The basic level of teaching English in here (read: European countries that are not Great Britain or Ireland) tends to be a bit of a mish-mash, so what it really comes down to, in the end, is personal preference and the awareness that there are differences in spelling. Some decide to go with the American spelling, some with the British. Some just keep mixing them up. Personally, I favour British spelling and strive to keep uniform, correcting myself as I learn more.
2009-09-04 [Easterling]: I like the spelling "colour", too.. but I changed it so it was spelled the same way as the name of the contest. I thought it looked better that way. But it doesn't really matter to me, if both the spellings are correct.
2009-09-04 [moira hawthorne]: I find it amusing that most people are saying that they prefer colour... but spell it color as to not offend some people...
2009-09-04 [Future Dictator]: when i type it really depends on if im too lazy to find the u button or not heheeeheheehe
2009-09-04 [Kuramasgirl]: xD As I said, moira, I'm a bit silly about those sorts of things.
2009-09-04 [Akayume]: Colour looks better. XP
2009-09-09 [Iske]: KLEUR lol
2009-09-09 [SlightlySpiked]: ive had 6 hours of smeel in the last umm...over three days!!!!!!!!!!
2009-09-09 [moira hawthorne]: dath, lí, and snua are all irish for colour
2009-09-09 [SlightlySpiked]: im irish XD
2009-09-09 [moira hawthorne]: which dath, lí, or snua is *more* correct in this context?
im not even gonna pretend I know irish,.... I studied gaelic as a child and teen... but my bucket got dumped
2009-09-09 [FamousPanda]: 6 hours of smeel lmao that's great.
2009-09-09 [SlightlySpiked]: i was born in america and sheltered from my heritage, but the one that sounds more naural to me is snua.
smeel?? wat is that?
2009-09-09 [moira hawthorne]: you said it! lol...
2009-09-09 [SlightlySpiked]: huh?
2009-09-09 [SlightlySpiked]: oh lol i meant sleep roflmao
2009-09-09 [Kuramasgirl]: XD Oh my goodness I should've called it the Snua Contest. How silly of me.
I want to learn Welsh badly, but I think I'd have to actually move to Wales to ever get it right. oO And even then so few speak it.
2009-09-09 [SlightlySpiked]: 0.o
2009-09-29 [Kuramasgirl]: Everyone still alive here? xD And remembering when the deadline is?
2009-09-30 [FamousPanda]: I'm still alive just trying to find a decent thing to photograph.
2009-09-30 [hanhepi]: i just had too much trouble doing rainbow things that didn't look like a gay pride flag. XD i gave up. i'll catch the next color though.
2009-09-30 [moira hawthorne]: I just been otherwise obsessed... a certain pale elf prince is taken over my life
2009-09-30 [hanhepi]: i just realized the thing i've been working on for the last couple of days fits the theme. duh.
2009-09-30 [Kuramasgirl]: Awesome, hanhepi! I really like it! And I'm so glad you just happened to be working on it. XD
And I know the allure of elf princes, moira, so I won't be too terribly upset. xD
2009-09-30 [moira hawthorne]: thx u... I need to get my art back on track ... Ive just got one chapter left to read... 35 chapters of uber awesomeness.. im gonna feel bereft... I dont know yet if the author is still writing the story... Ive been the only one commenting on it for this week... the last update was last month... I dont know the intervals of her updates... maybe she only updates ever 2 or 3 months...
2009-10-01 [SlightlySpiked]: XD
2009-10-01 [moira hawthorne]: oooh well thats what I have so far... I replace them if I get time to make something new...
2009-10-02 [Kuramasgirl]: xD Those work.
2009-10-02 [moira hawthorne]: I also made this before... for a unicorn contest... thats why I didnt want to use it here...
2009-10-03 [Kuramasgirl]: I don't really mind if you use something from another contest, but it's up to you. :)
2009-10-04 [SlightlySpiked]: ooh nice!!!
2009-10-07 [hanhepi]: woo hoo people like my stuff. i got a few more abstracty things done that i'll export and enter here in a little while.
2009-10-07 [moira hawthorne]: I like b. "rainbowstreak
2009-10-07 [hanhepi]: i think that one is my favorite too.
they come out so much darker than they look in artrage. :/
2009-10-09 [hanhepi]: wow! i didn't expect so much positive feedback about my work. :D
2009-10-09 [Anvikit]: Very nice Hanepi.. I like the first one.. kinda has a "Klimt" vibe to it.
2009-10-09 [hanhepi]: i had to google that name. his stuff is rather cool.
2009-10-09 [moira hawthorne]: Klimt is awesomespanks! I fell in love with his art when I was very young... his father was a goldsmith therefore all the gold in his art
2009-10-09 [hanhepi]: oh, yeah that does kind of explain why a lot of the paintings were so gold. :)
2009-10-11 [SlightlySpiked]: XD
2009-10-19 [Cillamoon]: Is there a new deadline date for this?
2009-10-19 [Kuramasgirl]: Only if there needs to be one. I have mid-terms this week, and I'm trying to make sure I can exempt all of them, but that requires a lot of time in the "keeping my grades up" department. x__x So I can't exactly manage this at the moment. If someone needs a new deadline, tell me now and I'll make it.
2009-10-20 [dancingsheep]: Oh gosh! Good luck, Kurama! I have midterms this week, as well. :/
2009-10-20 [Aquariuscelesti a]: oi..........i just got my midterm grades back>.< i hate chemistry.... *sigh*
2009-10-20 [Cillamoon]: Is that where everyone has been hiding is in the midterm stacks? lol :P The only reason why I ask about the deadline is for the [mc], I'm trying to keep all dates current. Essentially meaning if the deadline has passed, I want to make sure there isn't a new one or that the contest is still going. I know this is still going, I've been watching for a few months now, just wanted to make sure there wasn't a new deadline. ^_^
2009-10-20 [dancingsheep]: I envy how on top of things you are.
2009-10-20 [Cillamoon]: Lol XP You know I'm all over these pages! ^_^
2009-10-22 [SlightlySpiked]: one day ill b able 2 post a pic 4 thisa competition lmao XD
2010-01-20 [dancingsheep]: It's been exactly 3 months since anything was said on here; how sad!
2010-01-20 [moira hawthorne]: wow yeah seriously its been a busy time
2010-01-20 [Kuramasgirl]: So terribly sorry. :\ It's my Senior year of High School. Things are a little crazy around here. Though this weekend I believe I will have time to set up a new contest, if anyone's still interested? I'll end this one too, of course.
2010-01-20 [dancingsheep]: Oh goodness! That's a busy year! Good luck!
2010-01-20 [Kuramasgirl]: Hah, thank you! :) Half-way through now.
2010-01-21 [FamousPanda]: I'm interested in a new contest =D When you have time of course.
2010-01-21 [Kuramasgirl]: Well, I'm a tad busy tomorrow for at least the first half of the day, but perhaps I'll set things up in the evening tomorrow. Should I still make a poll for this one? I didn't even realize I hadn't. :S I feel terrible for that. So sorry.
2010-01-21 [SilverFire]: Yarr, make a poll. Not really fair to the people who bothered entering otherwise. Late is still better than never. :)
2010-01-22 [Kuramasgirl]: Okay then. :D
2010-01-22 [Kuramasgirl]: Darnet I forgot a border...
2010-01-23 [moira hawthorne]: wow that badge is pretty awesome!!!
2010-01-23 [Triola]: Seconded. Can we vote for the badge? :P
2010-01-23 [Kuramasgirl]: Aw, thank you. I got inspired? :3
lol, No, no voting for the badge. xD
2010-01-24 [SlightlySpiked]: kura the badge is nice!!! i like it!! XD lol
2010-01-24 [Kuramasgirl]: Hehe, thank you!
2010-01-25 [Jitter]: I say Kura won the contest with those badges :P
Edit: Ok trio already made the joke I did so meh xD
2010-01-25 [Triola]: Great minds ;)
2010-01-25 [wicked fae mage]: *ponders* I wonder what is next
2010-01-25 [Kuramasgirl]: xD Awwww...Thank you everybody. Figured I should do something good to make up for the insanely long hiatus, hah.
I have the urge to make the next round violet, but if someone has a suggestion (that we can all agree on in a timely manner, hah), then I'd be happy to go along with it. :)
2010-01-25 [moira hawthorne]: how will you differ violet from purple? - that we done twice all ready?
2010-01-25 [Kuramasgirl]: We could do a variation on purple instead? Such as lilac? Or lavender? Though I was hoping for one of the deeper purples. I'll have to look up a name.
2010-01-25 [Keylla]: oh dear, not purple :D I love purple, but have nothing to use for it... I guess I will have to hunt for something :D
2010-01-25 [wicked fae mage]: How about a design? Like different colored animal patterns, or camo, or geometric designs...
2010-01-25 [Kuramasgirl]: XD Kym, isn't your cloak purple?
The designs are an interesting possibility. I hadn't thought of those before. o.o
2010-01-25 [moira hawthorne]: leopard print! lol!
2010-01-25 [wicked fae mage]: Leopard print, tiger stripes, calico patches...
2010-01-25 [Keylla]: yes, the cloak is a dark blueish-purple color, but I have no camera.
2010-01-25 [moira hawthorne]: I had a dream last night that my calico kitty Maya was alive still... i miss her.... she was such a wonderful kitty
2010-01-25 [wicked fae mage]: One of my calicos is firmly glued to my lap and interfering with my fast typing.
I think adding scales to the above list would be cool too. :)
2010-01-25 [moira hawthorne]: maybe we can stick to kitty patterns this time... and than do reptile one for a different contest... and than horsey patterns for a 3rd... ect
2010-01-25 [moira hawthorne]: tho a white tiger is gonna look alot like a zebra...
and a tux kitty is gonna look like a paint
2010-01-25 [wicked fae mage]: But it'd be interesting to see *strokes chin*
2010-01-25 [Kuramasgirl]: Horsey patterns. xD I can see it now...
Do you mean just in general for the contest? As in say the theme is "Cat Patterns"?
2010-01-25 [wicked fae mage]: However you would want to do it. Say you put up a leopard pattern or leopard theme room and let us color it...or like a den of tigers something like that. Or if you'd like us to use mostly purples for whatever we come up with.
2010-01-27 [arthemis_]: then maybe the contest theme is 'fur-color'? Then it can be cat's, horse's, tiger's, grizzly's, yeti's, etc. :D
2010-01-27 [wicked fae mage]: That could work too. Or if Kura wants to put up another picture for us to color?
2010-01-27 [arthemis_]: She doesn't put up pictures to color, does she? Or did I miss something? :D
2010-01-27 [wicked fae mage]: I believe she had a color contest with an uncolored picture, you printed the picture and colored it. Or else somebody else had a similar contest.
2010-01-27 [Cillamoon]: That is not for this contest, it is another one. I too have seen it and know what you are talking about, however I cannot recall the name this specific second.
2010-01-27 [wicked fae mage]: <<<hasn't had coffee yet
Ah, okay. Similar with the color thing...*nods*
2010-01-27 [arthemis_]: lol, that's right :D Kura's is the other way around. Deeterhi gives you the drawing and we color, Kura gives us the color and we draw ;)
2010-01-27 [Cillamoon]: Yes! That's it! ^_^
2010-01-27 [wicked fae mage]: Alrighty... :)
2010-01-27 [Kuramasgirl]: xD I was wondering about that...Couldn'
2010-01-27 [wicked fae mage]: I just thought of gem colors or coloring gems to add onto possible inspiration :)
2010-01-28 [Keylla]: You guys should try to get any complete art outta her, it's like pulling teeth. Kura, you're still supposed to draw Sarai for me! Lazy indeed.
and I like the idea of gem colors :D
2010-01-28 [Kuramasgirl]: I like the idea of gem colors too. o.o What a neat idea!
xD And you know I have trouble drawing people on the spot like that! I'm only good at animals, lol.
2010-01-28 [wicked fae mage]: Thanks and don't worry...I'm not good with on the spot either.
2010-01-28 [SlightlySpiked]: lmao i need to log on more XD
2010-01-28 [wicked fae mage]: Yes, Elftowners are entertaining :)
2010-01-28 [moira hawthorne]: money is a great motivator... but if you want it for free tho you have no right to complain if the artist doesnt do it to your satisfaction
2010-01-28 [arthemis_]: Lol, no worries [Kuramasgirl], I completely dig the whole setting of your contest, so no giving us line-art! I want free reign :D
P.S. Is it an idea to set up an idea-page for colors? So everybody can add their color choices there and you pick one you like?
2010-01-29 [Kuramasgirl]: I'm beginning to think that's an excellent idea, arthemis. ^^; We've talked about similar things before, but I think I'll actually set one up tomorrow. Today I'm studying for a quiz and should probably get back to that pronto...
2010-01-29 [Keylla]: Kura, what on earth are you taking that has a quiz two days into the term?!
2010-01-30 [Kuramasgirl]: AP Government of course. XD Can you really be so surprised? Though we didn't take it after all, since he wanted us to finish the movie...
I did however have a quiz in AP Calculus...Did well, though. :)
2010-01-31 [Keylla]: lol, Yes I can be suprized, he didnt quiz us two days into the term. And Caculus is an all year thing, so thats not suprizing, and niether is you doing good Ms. 4.0 GPA.
2010-01-31 [Kuramasgirl]: xD That was an easy quiz. Sh.
2010-01-31 [SlightlySpiked]: i wish i was that smarts....xD XP
2010-02-07 [arthemis_]: Congratulation
2010-02-07 [hanhepi]: congrats y'all.
2010-02-07 [dancingsheep]: Thanks, guys. XD
2010-02-08 [Iske]: well done, congrats to the winners
2010-02-14 [blu.nation]: Thank you ^^ wow I haven't been on here in such a long time, what a lovely surprise to come back to.
2010-02-14 [Cillamoon]: Woohoo! Congrats to the winners!! :)
2010-02-14 [SlightlySpiked]: XD well done all!!
2010-03-01 [Easterling]: It was very well done! :)
2010-03-01 [SlightlySpiked]: XD
2011-01-11 [Akayume]: I miss this. :(
2011-01-11 [Kuramasgirl]: Aw, I miss this too. :\ This evil thing called college got in the way of me running this like it should be run. But I'd be willing to try again, if anyone's still interested?
2011-01-11 [Akayume]: MOI! (: I am interested. :D
2011-01-12 [Anvikit]: I see your interested and times it by 2 :D
2011-02-10 [SlightlySpiked]: ill do it!!!!
2011-02-10 [Aquariuscelesti a]: ill do it^_^
2011-02-12 [SlightlySpiked]: XD
2011-02-27 [Kuramasgirl]: Okay, new contest time. We'll see if this works. xD
2011-02-27 [Zab]: :D
2011-02-28 [Akayume]: YESSSSSSSSSSSS
2011-02-28 [hanhepi]: woo hoo, i just bought all sorts of purple horse tack, and it's a lavendery purple. and my walls are lavender in my bed room too. i can get all sorts of cool lavender photos!
2011-02-28 [Kuramasgirl]: Hah, awesome! :D
2011-03-02 [Aquariuscelesti a]: very cool pic:) sorry yall.....im not finding the time to participate atm....hopeful
if you pray, please do so for my litle brother and my family:/ his appendix burst and hes gone through surgery, bu hes experiencing complications:(
2011-03-17 [Aquariuscelesti a]: just an update for anyone that saw my last message. thank you [Kuramasgirl] for the prayers:) my little brother is doing ok. hes still recovering and under close observation, but he should be ok:)
2011-03-18 [Akayume]: I lost my camera cord so I can't take pictures. I suppose I could try art..
2011-03-18 [Kuramasgirl]: Art is good! xD
Hope you find your camera cord, though. That's definitely something I wouldn't want to lose.
2011-03-18 [Akayume]: I am a total scatter-brain. I have no idea where it is. XP It makes me sad. DX
2011-03-18 [Kuramasgirl]: Ugh, that sucks. D: I'm surprised I haven't lost something important like that as well, considering the state of my dorm room at times.
2011-03-18 [Akayume]: I live at home, so I have plenty of places to loose it. XD
