2006-08-10 [Mr.Scoop]: Let's say two people work on the same project...if they win, is the prize split? Cause let's say I suck at drawing but have what it takes to color everything and make some shiny effects...I'd have someone else draw the characters and I'd make the photomanips...
2006-08-10 [Duredhel]: I'll make a contest for work in pairs.
2006-08-10 [Mr.Scoop]: Oki ^^
2006-08-10 [Grengo]: Bah, damn drawing contests >_>
2006-08-10 [Duredhel]: MS Paint art is accepted XD
2006-08-10 [Blood Raven]: It is? Briliant XD
2006-08-10 [Silverbullet]: XD
2006-08-10 [Duredhel]: Funkee XD!
2006-08-10 [Veltzeh]: Meteor!
2006-08-10 [Mr.Scoop]: XD
2006-08-12 [Duredhel]: I wonder if anyone'll join this thing XD
2006-08-12 [Sturmi]: I just discovered its existance today.... I'll think of something to draw, the prizes are really tempting
2006-08-13 [Little Insane Cat]: oooh, this wiki is gonna be so awesome!!! *goes to make an entry*
2006-08-14 [Silverbullet]: I'm planning on entering.. just gotta find the time to draw my idea/ get some photo refferences to help me ^^
2006-08-15 [Blood Raven]: It just struck me - I'll be working the whole week, and I don't have anything to do... I could make a serious entry this time! XD
2006-08-16 [Sunny Silverunicorn]: I'm just gonna start on my entry! :D
2006-08-17 [Silverbullet]: i need to take a picture of my hand! ...but i also need to feed my camera with four AAA batteries! The thing's a monster! ><
2006-08-17 [Mr.Scoop]: I have an entry!! ^^
2006-08-17 [Blood Raven]: I totally know what you're talking about. My camera eats batteries for breakfast, lunch, diner and in-betweens
2006-08-17 [Sunny Silverunicorn]: Your camera is a hobbit! O.o Eats five meals instead of 3! :D
2006-08-17 [Silverbullet]: he not burnt enough, Poopah-Scoopah
2006-08-18 [Silverbullet]: Not so random question:
...Has there ever been a successful casting of Meteor?
2006-08-18 [Mr.Scoop]: Well, I still have time to modify the old man...
2006-08-18 [Silverbullet]: So, how long do i have to procrastinate before this contest is over? :P
2006-08-18 [Mr.Scoop]: He'll tell you the day before it's over.
2006-08-22 [Mr.Scoop]: Haha, I'll take that as a compliment :P
2006-08-25 [Adaman]: 6 days left, just enough for me to finish Al'tul with Entangle, bwahaha.
2006-08-25 [Silverbullet]: I just need to work on the coloring of Unnamed with Meteor of dooooom!
2006-08-25 [Veltzeh]: I'm having a tentacle moment.
2006-08-25 [Adaman]: Is that the same as a spider sense tingling?
2006-08-25 [Veltzeh]: More like "I DO want to see what happens NEXT." >XD
2006-08-25 [Sturmi]: I'm thinking I won't be able to enter this contest U_U
I've way too much to do these weeks!
2006-08-25 [Veltzeh]: By the way, Scoop, you mean geezer and not geyser, right?
2006-08-25 [Silverbullet]: Ouh, wow Adaman *thumbs up*
2006-08-25 [Mr.Scoop]: Probably, eh Veltx...
2006-08-25 [Adaman]: No more of that, I thought someone else entered the contest. Btw, thanks Silverbullet. I hope Sturmi is able to pull something off by week's end, she only has 6 days until deadline.
2006-08-25 [Silverbullet]: Aren't you glad you put guidelines and rules for people to follow, eh Durh? X"D
2006-08-25 [Adaman]: Why is it that most catfolk characters are drawn like humans with kitty ears?
2006-08-25 [Silverbullet]: ..what i meant is that the last entry has nothing to do with lemirian magic....
2006-08-25 [Adaman]: I know, but I figure Dur will deal with that at the deadline. The entry still has a chance to describe what magic is performed (Since there are leaves blowing about, maybe something to do with wind?). I was merely saying that Dur only seems to draw catfolk that look like cats, whereas other lemirirans seem to draw catfolk as humans with kitty ears and tails. Just an observation really.
2006-08-25 [Veltzeh]: Well, lynxes I think are just like that... the others are more cat-like. I've drawn one lynx and one panther. because I just don't fancy human/animal crosses. XD
2006-08-25 [Adaman]: It's pretty much impossible to cross such species together genetically. Of course there is that old scientific bane, Magic. I think Alchemist classes can chimerize with others, so two characters could become one.
2006-08-25 [Little Insane Cat]: yeah lynx clan look the most human but i've added a thin layer of fur and some markings on her cheeks just for you guys -___-;
2006-08-25 [Veltzeh]: Does it represent magic, though?
2006-08-25 [Little Insane Cat]: no, it's just markings that i saw on a picture of a lynx o_O
2006-08-25 [Veltzeh]: You know that the theme is Lemirian magic... right? o.o
2006-08-25 [Little Insane Cat]: yeah yeah, it's not done yet (i just forgot) i'm adding *cough* the magic...ok all done
2006-08-25 [Little Insane Cat]: it's magic now isn't it?
2006-08-26 [Mr.Scoop]: You know Adaman, your version of entangle looks exactly like what I would've done if I could draw XD
2006-08-26 [dribilie]: this is getting to be a good contest...when does it end?
2006-08-26 [Silverbullet]: yup yup.. meaning i've got 4 days to finish coloring my entry! *scrambles*
2006-08-26 [Duredhel]: Bwahahah XD actually SBs entry might just be my favorite.
2006-08-26 [Silverbullet]: X"D
2006-08-26 [Veltzeh]: Guess what I forgot from my picture :D
2006-08-26 [Silverbullet]: ... i dunno what you forgot.. but you've just made me remember to put a signature :P
2006-08-26 [Veltzeh]: I usually forget that too, but not this time.
2006-08-26 [Adaman]: You know those hand monsters, it usually takes a meteor to finish them off. I like the little comic strip for the meteor action, best part is that the countries are all labelled, heh.
2006-08-30 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: I need to hurry with my entry ^^'
2006-09-01 [Adaman]: Deadline!
2006-09-01 [Silverbullet]: Alright! We have our participants, we have our entries.. When will we get the voting? ^____^
2006-09-01 [Mr.Scoop]: Yeaaaaaaaaaaaa
2006-09-02 [Silverbullet]: Whee, i get first vote!
....maybe i should've voted for myself.. that prize is tempting XD
2006-09-03 [Duredhel]: Poll'll be up till the 15th, make sure to tell people to vote :D! The next contest'll start in the 15th as well.
2006-09-05 [Duredhel]: Uhm.. I thought the competition was gonna be one sided, but we've actually been close to a three way tie XD
2006-09-05 [Adaman]: Poor Raven, not even 1 vote.
2006-09-05 [Lunnie]: I'll vote for raven ;D
2006-09-05 [Silverbullet]: XD now she has 10!
2006-09-05 [Lunnie]: That's not raven. D; That's Adaman... and I recall Adaman being a he. xD
2006-09-05 [Adaman]: *shrugs* I've been mistaken for worse.
2006-09-06 [Silverbullet]: eh.. I meant Raven.. with 6... I blame the fatigue XD
2006-09-06 [Lunnie]: Lol.
2006-09-08 [Silverbullet]: What happens in the event of a tie? :O
2006-09-08 [Veltzeh]: Hey, it's almost a three-way tie! If only I got a few more votes... XD
2006-09-08 [Silverbullet]: That'd be freaky! When has there ever been a three-way tie?
teehee, I said three-way! X"D
2006-09-08 [Adaman]: I suppose in the event of a tie Dur would be the tie-breaker.
2006-09-08 [Silverbullet]: Better start buttering him up then!
...wait.. that sounded gay! >_<
2006-09-08 [Duredhel]: Huh... I always thought Scoop was the gay one... the shirtlesness n all...
2006-09-08 [Adaman]: Just get a really big turkey baster & fill with melted butter. Dab one drop on Dur, and you should be safe from homosexual accusations.
2006-09-08 [Silverbullet]: X"D Poor scoop!
do i get any bonus points for pointing out the homosexual-y comment before anyone else did? ^______^'
2006-09-08 [Adaman]: Why? You posted it in the same comment. Who else had a shot at pointing it out before you?
2006-09-08 [Duredhel]: Mebbe Sb is just self-concious about his blatant homosexuality?
2006-09-08 [Adaman]: Now now, everyone goes through a blatant homosexual phase.
2006-09-08 [Silverbullet]: X'D shaddap
I was just looking for some extra points here! Extra points are good for everything! From corrupting judges to adding flavor to your salad!
2006-09-09 [Mr.Scoop]: You know that I can still see what you guys are writing... -___-'
2006-09-09 [Silverbullet]: nay ye can't... >_>
2006-09-09 [Silverbullet]: Ay carama! Veltzeh's jumped to second! ><
2006-09-09 [Mr.Scoop]: It's spelled, "caramba".....
2006-09-09 [Silverbullet]: *twitch*
2006-09-09 [Adaman]: You two, quit your bitchings. I'll have you know you're bother bordering on Dur's Law, section 5.
2006-09-09 [Silverbullet]: XD This is us being nice to each other! We're brothers irl, so it's like our job to bitch eachother ^^
But i'll tone it down a bit
2006-09-09 [Adaman]: *shrugs* I'm not foaming at the mouth in anger or frustration about it, but knowing you two are brothers does make it a little more understandable of why Dur hasn't said anything yet, heh.
2006-09-09 [Mr.Scoop]: Exactamundo ^________^
Now, who's high on coffee?!? *raises hand* Meeeeeeeeeeeee
2006-09-12 [dribilie]: i could use some coffee, im dead tired
2006-09-12 [Silverbullet]: Coffee! Blah! XP
2006-09-12 [Sturmi]: damnit, yesterday night I was preparing to work in an essay I've to write and I made myself some coffee and was approaching the computer to start writing and...... the light went off! And there I was with a lot of coffee and no reason to be awake.
2006-09-14 [dribilie]: the electricity went out here the other morning, just long enough for my computer to shut down, and now it wont turn back on. so now im forced to use my sisters computer to stay updated with everything. darn it
2006-09-14 [Mr.Scoop]: You wanna know what I think?.....pro
2006-09-14 [Sturmi]: hum... you can try unplugging it and re-plugging it again... worked for me once for some misterious and ilogical reason
2006-09-15 [Adaman]: Is the voting complete?
2006-09-15 [Mr.Scoop]: No I think people are about to change their minds and switch their votes for my entry. ^^'....
2006-09-15 [Silverbullet]: haha, touch luck hootch-monger!
By the way, I'll be gone all weekend, so my winner's speech will need to wait until monday night ^_____________
2006-09-15 [Adaman]: Poor raven though, not even one vote. He put his heart and soul into that MSpaint file. Every pixel of it his dreams of victory.
2006-09-16 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: Woot! *Awaits for the next to begin*
2006-09-18 [Adaman]: Oh goodie. Lemirian gods, hmmm.
2006-09-18 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: So for the one for the Catfolk mainly, can you describe it more?
2006-09-18 [Duredhel]: Uhm, well she's the goddess of nature and the wild, worshipped not only by catfolk but by Druids, Shamans, etc. Sei'anna, the historical figure, was an Ignean, so the representation
2006-09-18 [Duredhel]: So is anyone joining this one O_o?
2006-09-18 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: I may consider it but my drawing queue is huge right now. If I have time before it finishes, I'll submit something.
2006-09-18 [Mr.Scoop]: I'm going to be pretty busy this week but I'll see if I can find some time to draw something and hope that it might be considered an actual drawing and not result in FBI shooting me down for posession of illegal weapon of mass destruction...
2006-09-19 [Adaman]: I could throw in an entry, but it probably won't win first place.
2006-09-19 [Silverbullet]: I'm going to work on a sketch.. I'll have plenty of free time next week for it ^_^
2006-09-19 [Duredhel]: You'll have around a month, till mid-october, so no rush,
2006-09-19 [Adaman]: Did the two of you miss the pun there?
2006-09-19 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: I caught it
2006-09-19 [Silverbullet]: I caught it too.... just didn't find an appropriate spot for my "XD Adaman made a funny!"-smiley ^_____________
2006-09-19 [Adaman]: Hurray! Cookies on the house.
2006-09-19 [Veltzeh]: I already started drawing but then I realized I have no clue at all what Seannesha might look like, even if I assume its kids look like the respective planetarii. :D
2006-09-19 [eyes of frost]: Cool. Another contest!!
2006-09-20 [Veltzeh]: So... what DOES Seannesha look like? Or can I just make up something? (I bet you'd regret that...)
2006-09-20 [Adaman]: Remember Veltz, you're trying to win a contest, not spite Dur. The idea is to draw something everyone will vote for.
2006-09-20 [Veltzeh]: I haven't gone that low yet. I don't draw for anyone else except myself, in the end. Drawing is my hobby, not my profession. :D
2006-09-20 [Adaman]: When you live to sell art, you make small adjustments out of necessity. Still, logically speaking, the point of entering an art contest is to draw something people will vote for.
2006-09-20 [Veltzeh]: I dislike contests (I usually enter them to challenge myself to draw something new or something). I could not enter them, too, if you'd like...
2006-09-20 [Adaman]: That's your decision, entirely. Whether or not anyone is pleased by your entree or non-entree, it makes no difference. Besides, its always better to do something than not to do something.
2006-09-20 [Mr.Scoop]: Righto yeh are muh main man!
2006-09-20 [Silverbullet]: Living to sell your art isn't the same as living to make art. Idially, both would be the same, but as Adaman said, you sometimes have to make small adjustments so that people will like your art enough to buy it.
Here we're dealing with a contest, which is almost the same. However, we aren't living off the profit made from winning, so we can try to do our best without really caring whether people will vote for us or not. The variety of people voting will ensure that the best wins. (As long as the majority of voters refrain from popularity votes and pitty votes, that is.)
Personally, I'm like Veltz here. I enter to draw. If I win anything is beside the point (though a welcome perk XD).
2006-09-20 [Veltzeh]: Yep. Well, it's not ALWAYS better to do something than not... I for example like to have a little of totally "wasted" time doing absolutely nothing, because my brain tends to make up nice things during that time. Maybe that's not "not doing something" though, but well. X)
2006-09-22 [Veltzeh]: Dur? Care to shed any light on Seannesha?
2006-09-22 [Duredhel]: no :D, its a god, its got endless representation
2006-09-22 [Adaman]: Veltzeh, I don't think you've ever agreed with me once on anything, heh. And Silverbullet, thanks for spelling it out a bit more in detail.
2006-09-22 [Veltzeh]: Oh good :D And Adaman, you make the kind of statements that I can neither wholly disagree or agree with. I usually half-agree with them, but I have to mention the other side too, so it looks more like disagreeing... right? X)
2006-09-22 [Silverbullet]: haha, no prob. I've gotten a few comments when i was in Arts in Cegep about why i "didn't draw what people find are nice". My usual reply was "It's not my job to draw what people think are nice. My job is to draw, and for people to find what's nice about it."... or something like that, depended on how much chocolate i had in me at the time ^_____^
2006-09-23 [Silverbullet]: Hey Dur! Is there a race that's a bit less... imaginative? XD
Or rather, more down to earth. Some that would be less succeptible to personalise a deity?
2006-09-23 [Duredhel]: XD Don't really get your question.
2006-09-23 [Silverbullet]: Well.. I have a feeling most of the entries will show us some kind of 'humanoid' representation of the gods. My question is are there some of the races who would, instead of personalising their gods, would represent them more as symbols than as people? *is probably not making more sense*
2006-09-24 [Duredhel]: Its up to you really, I wanted to give you guys some freedom this time around XD
2006-09-24 [Silverbullet]: You sure chose the right subject! Religion: not a very constrained piece of inspiration XD
2006-09-24 [Veltzeh]: Even though I mostly dislike god-like things that resemble any recognizable humanoid shape, there are a few simple reasons for drawing them that way... first, people can get it, second, they end up looking nice and third, at least I like drawing humanoids. :D
...I just had an urge to draw the gods as towers.
2006-09-24 [Mr.Scoop]: Yes.
2006-09-24 [Silverbullet]: Towers? Oo I'll be looking forward to seeing that ^^
2006-09-24 [Veltzeh]: I already did draw humanoids, though... is there a limit to how many entries one person can enter?
2006-09-24 [Duredhel]: I'd rather it be 1 ^^
2006-09-29 [Sturmi]: when's the deadline?
2006-09-29 [Veltzeh]: I got my picture scanned and smudged >_>
2006-09-29 [Sturmi]: Mine is almost done :)
2006-09-29 [Silverbullet]: I've got mine ready to be inked.. i just don't know if it really fits the subject ^^"
2006-09-30 [Adaman]: Ooo, Sturmi's in the contest. This could be a challenge.
2006-10-02 [Duredhel]: Uhm.. I hope we get a fair number of entries ^^
I'm failing miserably at promoting the contest amongst non-RoL peoples :(
2006-10-02 [Duredhel]: Done that ^^
I wanted to have it show up on the mainstreet, but they don't do it for contest pages, only individual contests :(
2006-10-06 [Silverbullet]: Photoshop was a bitch with this one.. So I said screw the coloring and go basic! So I just changed the hue of the lineart and added that old parchment paper feel.
Anyone know how to fix Photoshop program errors? Elements never wanted me to save anything!
2006-10-07 [eyes of frost]: Can you possibly extend this a few more days? I have about three reports due that day...and then the very next day I have an exam. :( Needless to say I am lack for time about now.
2006-10-07 [Duredhel]: If I don't get at least 5 entries by the Deadline, I'll extend it.
2006-10-07 [Grengo]: Eh, I might give it a shot, though I'll be dreading the coloring >_<
2006-10-07 [Silverbullet]: ...how about if you don't get at least 5 entries, you give me the first, second and third prizes :P
2006-10-07 [Adaman]: Heh, that's greedy. I might just be inclined to throw something together in seven hours now.
2006-10-07 [Silverbullet]: haha, can we really call it being greedy if it gives incentive to other participants to make something faster, and thus render my plan useless?
2006-10-07 [eyes of frost]: Oh thank goodness. NO ONE POST ANY ENTRIES FOR A WHILE! J/k!
2006-10-07 [Silverbullet]: In my place, any normal person would take the extra time to work on my entry some more.. but i got tired of working on it, so it's going to stay as is ^^
2006-10-09 [Mr.Scoop]: Niiiiiiiiiiiii
2006-10-09 [Silverbullet]: abundantly!
2006-10-09 [Magus Ferox]: Evidently Nimmy has taken to stalking around the Spire in his birthday suit. The two bemused acolytes in the background talked him into throwing on a bedsheet before posing for this pic. xD
2006-10-09 [Veltzeh]: Well, if you want to see naked things, wait till you see mine XD
2006-10-09 [Magus Ferox]: XD <3 Velt!
2006-10-10 [Duredhel]: Amazing work Magus :)
I really like your representation of him ^^
2006-10-10 [Magus Ferox]: Wee, ty <3
2006-10-15 [Veltzeh]: I was supposed to make some great coloring and shading, but I failed. -_- And now I'm too ill (tired) to bother. Maybe if this contest is still open when I get better... X)
2006-10-16 [eyes of frost]: I can't believe you put it at 5 entries D...*wants to maime* ...
2006-10-21 [Duredhel]: We only need one more entry XD its not that hard!
2006-10-21 [Adaman]: 2 people go away disappointed if they make an entry.
2006-10-21 [Duredhel]: *confuzzled*
2006-10-21 [Silverbullet]: 5 entries, 3 prizes. 2 disappointment
2006-10-21 [Duredhel]: ah, but the contest won't end until there's 5 entries so... 4 entries, no prizes, 4 disappoinments :/
2006-10-22 [Adaman]: This might go postponed until the beginning of next month.
2006-10-28 [Duredhel]: Karp :/ might be postponed even longer, what happened to all those people who were saying they were gonna enter? :/
2006-10-28 [Adaman]: Well, I would have entered, but then I got caught up with Lemirian weapons, and then NG work, not to mention all the other projects I have.
2006-11-07 [Silverbullet]: ...you still sure we should have 5 entries minimum for this? ^^'
Maybe i can bully Scoop into making something..
2006-11-07 [Duredhel]: Ya, I'd rather it be 5 entries minimum.
2006-11-13 [Blood Raven]: I'll see if I can find the time/inspirati
2007-09-14 [Titanium Tiger]: where can I find a describtion of the god of lemire?
2007-09-14 [Silverbullet]: Indeed. Keep in mind you won't find any actual physical description, that's up for you to imagine
2007-09-14 [Duredhel]: Uhhhm.. this contest is kinda dead you know?
2007-09-14 [Silverbullet]: Who cares if it's kinda dead, we just need one more entry to finally get this round over! :P
2007-12-02 [Lite]: Any way to reserve the last place for my entry? :P
2007-12-03 [Silverbullet]: Have at it! We'll wait for you ;P
2008-01-03 [Lite]: 5th entry down. Srry it took so long, been caught up in other projects. (Sadly, this one took only little time as I kinda rushed through it :/)
2008-01-28 [Blood Raven]: so, that's 5 entries. Anybody win this yet? Can we get a new contest? I might actually join :P
2008-01-28 [Silverbullet]: Someone's gotta poke Dur :P
*not it, cause I'm running off to work! :P*
