Don't worry... it's just a place holder. :P I hope...



6. [iippo] - Captain Blondebeard defeats el Pollo Diablo - the Devil Chicken!

<img400*0:http://www.elftown.com/stuff/558BWKana.jpg>

It's a kind of fan art of Curse of Monkey Island (3rd part of LucasArts' pirate computer game saga). This is the "artists version" of the happenings; reality was a bit different... :P (ask me, not necessarily about Grim Fandago either, but about the real story :P)



7. [IzzyKSK] And ofcourse I had to draw something totally different >_<

8. [playslashwrite] Booker the Pirate from Tea Time!!

<img:http://home.wanadoo.nl/trennas_radoslav/teatime/teatime_bookeralone.jpg>
It's not a drawing in the traditional sense of the word; Booker was entirely made in 3d Studio Max for my animation short Tea Time!!

2006-06-28 [playslashwrite]: i can upload max to my schools server.. if you want it, just let me know.. probably have maya lying around too :) dont tell anybody i said that;)

2006-06-28 [dayah]: I would love to have it...I was just getting the hang of it and then school was over...my class go it and the teacher had no idea how to use it so we had to figure it out on our own..

2006-06-28 [playslashwrite]: hehe with max, thats probably not the besy way to learn it XD it helps to have someone with experience to guide you :p ill see what i can do for you okay?:)

2006-06-28 [dayah]: okay..thanks..:D

2006-07-17 [Jeccabee]: ok, who's seen Dead Man's Chest? It was awesome! Ive seen it twice already

2006-07-17 [dayah]: oh yes it was great...I can't affored to see it twice..but yes it was awsome

2006-07-17 [iippo]: I liked it too, it was chock full of references to the Monkey Island games (and other pirate lore, yay!). But no wonder, since Industrial Light & Magic were doing effects, LucasArtsdid the games... :D

2006-07-18 [Jeccabee]: I didnt pay for either ticket! LOL but I owe my friend back for the second one...

2006-07-18 [5thwitch]: Madre de Dios! el puello Diablo!!!!!!! [5thwitch] screams to [iippo]

2006-07-18 [iippo]: Si! (XD Finally someone!)

2006-07-18 [5thwitch]: That's "barbagialla" in the italian version of T.c.o.M.I. 3. probabily was Yellowbeard in the english one.. you had to stole his gold tooth...with a beefsteak-flavoured gum...

2006-07-18 [iippo]: Blondebeard in the English version (and what, you got an Italian version? o.O)

2006-07-18 [5thwitch]: oooh, yesss

2006-07-19 [Savien]: Three cheers for the new entries!! HUZZAH!! HUZZAH!! HUZZAH!!!

2006-07-20 [the falling of autumn]: i dunno, they might force me to drop out...

2006-07-20 [dayah]: thanks..yaya

2006-08-01 [Peregrinus]: I need the password so I can post. Any help?

2006-08-01 [Lady of Lore]: must enter awesome contest!

2006-08-01 [Peregrinus]: Clearly! But the damned password stands between us and our goal!

2006-08-01 [Yuriona]: No worries... check yer mail matey. Arrrr....

2006-08-01 [Orouriel]: woww I love your entry [Peregrinus] O_o

2006-08-01 [playslashwrite]: ah very cool indeed:O

2006-08-02 [5thwitch]: wow

2006-08-02 [Jeccabee]: OMG [Peregrinus]...that's awesome! I hate you! LOL  the detail is great

2006-08-02 [Peregrinus]: Thanks! I looked at a lot of pictures of ships' rigging so as to get it right. Even so, there are a lot of things I took total artistic liberty with, so it's not the most "navaly correct" drawing ever.

2006-08-02 [Peregrinus]: Also, so as to give due credit to the model, the photo I based it off of is here: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/17111363/

2006-08-02 [playslashwrite]: ahhaa awesome XD

2006-08-02 [WestFactor]: hehe

2006-08-03 [Savien]: Excellent. Tell yer friends, lads and lasses. We need more entries!

2006-08-03 [Yuriona]: And any new entrants who need the password and [Savien] is out pillaging, just message me!

2006-08-03 [Lady of Lore]: They'll be a plenty more netires comin in or my name ain't be the Lady 'o lore

2006-08-03 [Ryo-Oni]: can I add my pirate?

2006-08-03 [Yuriona]: I think that would be ok as long as it follows da rules. :)

2006-08-03 [Ryo-Oni]: you can check it out yourself on my page and then send the password if it's alrigt.

2006-08-04 [Savien]: Aye, what she said.....*points at [Yuriona]*

2006-08-04 [DarkJenni]: O.o [Ryo-Oni] I like yours.

2006-08-04 [Ryo-Oni]: I feel so flattered. ^-^ Thank you, but why can't I see yours?

2006-08-04 [Savien]: Yeah, yours is gone MorbidMistress

2006-08-04 [Orouriel]: omg I love Jacob ^-^

2006-08-04 [iippo]: MorbidMistress's entry doesn't show because DeviantArt doesn't allow hotlinking. Trennas's entry is also not showing or me, also because it is outside ET. please upload to ET so we can all see them, please! O_o

2006-08-04 [Ryo-Oni]: Thank you much, Orouriel

2006-08-04 [playslashwrite]: very very good work mate:D

2006-08-04 [Ryo-Oni]: It's an honor, truely. Thank you.

2006-08-05 [Jeccabee]: I'm thinkin of redoin mine...or can we have two? 

2006-08-05 [DarkJenni]: okay, I fixed it now. ^^

2006-08-05 [iippo]: Ahh, thank you! It's gorgeous!

2006-08-05 [DarkJenni]: thankyou. ;} Sorry, folks....I decided to change my entree for this one. Ill resize him too [Savien] if ye want?

2006-08-13 [Lady of Lore]: can't find the password, it was sent to me and then lost in my great pile o stuff could someone kindly add me pirate?
<img300*0:http://elftown.lysator.liu.se/stuff/paulapirate.jpg>

2006-08-13 [Yuriona]: Done. :)

2006-08-13 [playslashwrite]: oow yeah ^^ nice:D

2006-08-14 [Lady of Lore]: thanks ^^ Sorry she's so light, I'm gonna try to fix that....my scanner wasn't too kind, lol

2006-09-02 [Savien]: Awright ye scabrous dogs!! Be warned, the prizes arrived by courier, so get those entries done, and stand fast. I'm gonna be pressin' a few judges inta service soon.

2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: I am awaiting a scanner from a dear friend who took pity on my scannerless situation....

2006-09-02 [Savien]: I saw.....um somewhere anyway, on one of the many pages where we cross paths. LOL!! It's really nice. No worries, we aren't that close to the deadline yet, just proddin' everyone along a bit. 
 I thought my printer was broken yesterday, but apparently the kids just thought it was a good place to keep legos. 

2006-09-02 [Savien]: Yeah. It's amazing but I wasn't all that upset. I was so glad it still worked, the lego thing was actually kinda funny. I guess when you're a parent for so long, the small stuff like that just doesn't get to you anymore.

2006-09-05 [Peregrinus]: Okay, so I finally finished my entry! No more crappy unfinishedness! Huzzah!

2006-09-05 [Perplexity]: Beautiful!

2006-09-05 [Peregrinus]: Thankye!

2006-09-06 [the falling of autumn]: oh boy...up to 14...i better get moving on mine ><

2006-09-06 [Lady of Lore]: i've fixed up me pirate, anyone kind enough to replace the old version withthis one? i still haven't found the password in my in box yet...
<img350*0:stuff/paulapiratedarker.jpg>

2006-09-06 [irulan]: I changed it, I don't think [Savien] will mind that I did that. ;) 

2006-09-06 [Lady of Lore]: thanks very much!

2006-09-06 [Savien]: Don't mind at all. :)

2006-09-08 [WestFactor]: Savien has to pick someone to remind me when the deadline is near. Thanks in advance!

2006-09-11 [Savien]: No worries for now.....

2006-09-12 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: Erm, how do we submit an entry?

2006-09-12 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: I'd like to submit this Cap'n. <img300*0:http://elftown.lysator.liu.se/img/drawing/46497_1158103598.jpg>

2006-09-13 [Lady of Lore]: How many entries can we have? If more than one I have another entry, if not that is fine as well ^_^ I'm still learnging to use computer art programs. This is my rpg pirate Twinsabre Lady of the Wind Arrow wiki in case you'd like to know.

<img300*0:http://elftown.lysator.liu.se/img/drawing/60827_1158130470.jpg>

2006-09-13 [Savien]: Errr, thanks Yuri. :P I'll allow 2 entries each, and still allow room for 20 contestants. that sound ok for everyone? Just keep in mind this contest will be judged by hand picked judges, and NOT by poll.

2006-09-13 [Savien]: And...these are all looking GREAT!! Keep it up!!

2006-09-13 [Yuriona]: I didn't see any limits on entries in the rules so I stuck it up. :P I didn't know when you'd be around next so you're welcome.

2006-09-13 [Savien]: GAD!! I've been so busy!! *dies*

2006-09-13 [Yuriona]: So I've heard. *nods*

2006-09-13 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: *Nods* Thank you

2006-09-20 [Savien]: I cannot believe we missed "Talk like a Pirate day"!!! It was yesterday, Sept 19th. mark yer calendars lads and lasses!.

2006-09-20 [Peregrinus]: Well, I certainly didn't miss it, heh...

2006-09-21 [Savien]: Well I guess for some of us it's always talk like a pirate day...

2006-09-21 [playslashwrite]: damn straight it is:p

2006-09-21 [Peregrinus]: Yarr, ye be right, o'course!

2006-09-22 [playslashwrite]: for some of us it would be more like.. talk normal for a change day:p

2006-09-23 [Peregrinus]: Who'd want to do that?

2006-10-03 [Caterin S.]: Hi.. I'd like to take part in this competition, so how can I submit? Can you send me the password? :)

2006-10-03 [Perplexity]: You could message [Savien] with your entry and get him to post it, too.

2006-10-03 [WestFactor]: How about I just post the password for all the new people? :) *lawl* Perplexity is entering this? Tuna, don't bother with this one because I'll be avenging my ninja AND my elf if you enter this thing! OMG... lol Maaan, I just noticed that we already have 15 entries. That Tuna is gonna be saved by a deadline! I'm lousy with deadlines! Hey Tuna... even though I totally ARRRRR terrified you by calling you out like that, I have to tell you that I finally saw Serenity!!! Now I need to watch Firefly! :P

2006-10-03 [Lady of Lore]: Firefly is AWESOME! ^^

2006-10-04 [Perplexity]: Hey Woody, it was unfunny the first time you called me that, and it didn't get any funnier as you went on flappin' those jowls of yours. You keep talking big in these contests, yet I haven't seen you own up to all that talk. No entries in a while. Must have really hurt your feelings all those other times I whooped your ass artistically.
Yeah go watch Firefly, man. I can't believe it took you this long to catch onto that show's genius.

2006-10-04 [Lothuriel]: 0__o

2006-10-04 [Lady of Lore]: whyeeeee did Firefly have to be cancelled...(get on knees in an overly dramatic way) whyyyyyyyyyy?


Lol...Mal and Wash are great.

2006-10-04 [Lothuriel]: I think it was only meant to be a mini-series, wasn't it? I am not sure. All I know is that is was pure genius...like something I would write if I weren't so stinking lazy, lol!

2006-10-04 [Peregrinus]: No I'm afraid it was not. It was *supposed* to be a really freaking kick-ass, full-length series, but the moronic entites at Fox decided to kill it by airing the episodes out of order and editing them into mediocrity. Then they went and replaced it with shows like the Simple Life. WHY FOX? WHY!!!!!! Damn I miss that show. And I watched it before it was canceled.

2006-10-04 [Lothuriel]: egad!! I didn't know this.

2006-10-04 [Lady of Lore]: Yup it was supposed to last a good long while but it had a bad time slot and Stargate Atlantis and a fw other shows came out that competed agianst it....but there are still true blue fans...they even have conventions! ^^ My friend brought my back a River Tam shirt that says "My Turn" on it ^^ Woot!

2006-10-04 [Perplexity]: I think FOX even booted some shows or ran over them with football or something. Gah, it was doomed from the get go with that network. Conspiracy I tell you! They feared Joss Whedon's genius!

2006-10-04 [Perplexity]: And since we are getting off topic for this wiki - I see there is Firefly for further discussion on the show. =)

2006-10-04 [Ariandra]: Hey, why is no one talking like a pirate in here? O.o

2006-10-04 [Perplexity]: Err... I mean...arrr...=B

2006-10-04 [Peregrinus]: Yarr, what d'ya mean we be not talkin' like pirates there, matey?

2006-10-05 [Savien]: Arrrrrr! Hoist th' jib, an' fly me colors! Hands to braces an' back ta work ye scabrous dogs!! Only 5 spots left!!

2006-10-05 [Peregrinus]: Arr, that be true, matey! If I can finish me second piece I'll submit it straightaway, but it all depends if we reach the 20 mark before I get the piece done. I'll be workin' like the madman I am until then so I can finish in time!

2006-10-05 [WestFactor]: "I whooped your ass artistically" LOL Even Wiz shredded me during that losing streak. But don't forget who won YOUR contest. =p Even character-killin' Joss loved that entry!

Only 5 spots! I'm glad that Yuri is reserving one for me with her placeholder... :)




2006-10-05 [Yuriona]: :O I am?? That's news to me WEst. Maybe if you ask niiicely I'll consider it.

2006-10-05 [Perplexity]: Oh yes I'm sorry, I totally forgot your losing "streak" was punctuated by one win. Congrats!

2006-10-06 [Savien]: *hands out cutlasses and pistols* remember, this is pirate country, fight dirty, and only one of ye comes out alive....haaaar!!  Or we could try to be a bit more civil, at least amongst ourselves...

2006-10-06 [Lady of Lore]: hmmmmmm.....(drags a cannon up)

2006-10-06 [Yuriona]: Aaarr! Play nice mateys or we be forced ta keelhaul ya!

2006-10-06 [Lady of Lore]: But aye was jus keepin it ta besure no swabs got too outta line....(pats cannon affectionatly) and could someone take pity on lil ole me and swap me second entry for this one?
<img200*0:http://elftown.lysator.liu.se/img/drawing/60827_1159479257.jpg>

The title is "The Ship's Monkey"

2006-10-06 [WestFactor]: lol I wouldn't take your placeholder because I want to see your entry. :) Grrr... but I WILL take that gat from Savien. =P And those losses were a joke. Like, in one contest we used a poll and the butterfly ballot cost me 19,000 votes. Pffft... I was gonna split yer wig with me gat but smokin' ya after Lady posted that there lovely entry wouldn't be OH WHAT DA HECK *bang!* ARRRRRR Kapow! Time to robot!

2006-10-06 [Lady of Lore]: Thank ye whoever changed me pic, *draws cutlass and prepares to defend her loaded cannon*

2006-10-06 [Lothuriel]: Is it still too late for me to get my entry up? I decided to change a couple things then got inspired to redo the entire thing...=0p...

2006-10-06 [Mom]: nope...deadline is 20 entries and we still aren't there yet.

2006-10-06 [Lothuriel]: Wow...where'd I get 15? I am trying to keep up with too many things I guess...

2006-10-08 [Mom]: Westie???*Faints*

2006-10-10 [the falling of autumn]: GAH 16?!?!?! FAREAK *hurries to attempt to finish entry ><*

2006-10-10 [WestFactor]: Awwww, cute kid. :) You nailed it. :) Hehe... Xander with a patch, just like the last season of Buffy.

2006-10-11 [Lothuriel]: Xander is my little boy...thanks!!

2006-10-11 [Mom]: Baby Pirates...I love it!!!!!

2006-10-11 [Lothuriel]: THanks [Mom]!!!

2006-10-12 [Lothuriel]: Lovin' your entry Cat!! Woort!!

2006-10-12 [Caterin S.]: \,,/ thanks. :) And your cute little pirate boy is awesome Loth. <3

2006-10-13 [Peregrinus]: Alrighty, I've put up my second entry! However, it's extremely unfinished. I'm still working like a madman on the background, and of course, the pirate lad himself. Suggestions (kindly ones, mind ye) are welcome!

2006-10-13 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: The only thing that stood out to me (since you asked), is the fact that his left hand looks a little disproportional (a little small). I love the boots!

2006-10-13 [Lothuriel]: Thanks cat!

2006-10-13 [Caterin S.]: Looks great, [Peregrinus]. :) I'd take that kind of pirate lad anytime. :P

2006-10-13 [Mom]: @[Peregrinus]...Working on pirate lads could get you in trouble.XP

2006-10-13 [Perplexity]: Mom! :O lol

2006-10-13 [Jeccabee]: yet again another awesome entry from Peregrinus! I do agree about he hand though...but I understand...drawing hands can be pain in the arse. 

2006-10-15 [Peregrinus]: Yep. I've not thought so before, even though others have said that too, but looking at it here I realize you're entirely correct. I'll get on that post haste. I sure hope I can finish it before the contest ends. Thanks for the feedback everyone!

2006-10-16 [Jeccabee]: no problem. I'm sure you'll do great!

2006-11-07 [Savien]: For those of ye who wish ta hear, mp3 samples of the songs on the cd offered above (as well as other songs by the Bilge Pumps) can be found at http://thebilgepumps.com/songs.htm

2006-11-07 [Savien]: Oh yeah, and the lyrics as well......yaharrr!

2006-11-07 [Mom]: *Sails off to see/hear* *Hums*

2007-01-18 [Peregrinus]: So... it looks like we may never actually get 20 entries...

2007-01-20 [Savien]: Or for all of these swabs to fill up these places they have held. So HEAVE TO YE SCABROUS DOGS!! THERE'S PIRATIN' TA BE DONE!!

2007-01-20 [Savien]: If the ones we have get done before the 20 come in we'll call it good. I'll have the judges make final ummmm judgement and that'll be that. Fair enough everyone? WHO ASKED YE ANYWAY?!?!?  NOW BACK TA WORK ON THOS ENTRIES!!!

2007-01-20 [Peregrinus]: Heh, alrighty then. I'm working on my second one. It's already quite a bit farther along, but I do work slowly, so I don't know if it'll be done by the time the others finish. If not, I'll submit it as-is.

2007-02-03 [WestFactor]: LoL@Mom's pirate lad comment! I'm out of the loop, but I did not forget this contest! Glad it's still open.

2007-03-03 [Trist]: is this contest still open? i will do a portrait of jonee earthquake!

2007-05-21 [Lothuriel]: <img:stuff/sh-gif.gif>Awesome!!!

2007-05-22 [playslashwrite]: congratulations!:D

2007-05-22 [Peregrinus]: Huzzah! Thanks so much!

2007-06-08 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: Woo, Cap'n Jack! Congrats Peregrinus!

2007-06-08 [Jeccabee]: Has anyone here seen the new Pirates movie? It's freakin awesome! Will looks oh so good at the end! And Capt. Jack is well he's just awesome as always! Oh and Barbosa is the shit in this one! He's hilarious!

2007-06-08 [irulan]: I definitely agree about Will - they should made him a "pirate" with the official gear long ago. ;)

2007-06-08 [Jeccabee]: oh yeah! The only thing is that his situation kinda sucks.
Did you stay after the credits?

2007-06-08 [irulan]: No, dernit. We got tired of waiting. :/ What did I miss? (You can message me if it will give away a spoiler)

2007-06-09 [if i followed you home would you keep me]: ooo message me too..i didnt get to stay afterwards...and i def agree about will at the end..oh so delicious

2007-06-14 [Peregrinus]: Well they didn't mention it in the film (apparently it got cut) but Will actually isn't bound to the Dutchm,an forever, only for ten years, because if your true love is faithful after ten years and waits for your return, the curse is broken and a new captain is chosen. That's why Jones was so pissed off that Tia Dahlma wasn't there when he got back. I have no idea why they cut such an important detail from the film, but there it is.

2007-06-14 [Ariandra]: Where did you get that info? We saw the part after the credits, but the dialog during the movie indicated that he would be the captain forever and only get to come ashore once every 10 yrs, and the part after was just their 10 yr visit. Davey Jones was cursed because he didn't do his duty to the dead souls. If we missed something, I'll have to go find it!LOL

2007-06-15 [Jeccabee]: Yes, Davey Jones didnt do his duty, but he stopped because Tia Dahlma wasnt there when he came back. But i do agree...the dialoge left us thinking that Will was bound to the Dutchman forever. I wish they had put that part in...cause it sucks the other way! Maybe they will put it on the DVD

2007-06-15 [Lothuriel]: Davey Jones was suppose to be cursed for 100 years as the ferryman, carrying souls lost at sea to their final resting place. Instead, he used the Flying Dutchman to fullfill his own selfish rein of terror. As for the thing that [Peregrinus] mentioned, it isn't part of the POTC series, it is one of many legends surrounding the Flying Dutchman. If you stuck around after the credits, you know already what happened 10 years later...Honestly, though. I didn't think that movie mad a dang bit of sense. It contradicted everything we were told in the first two and the characters were...well...completely out of character. i hate to say this but, I just didn't like it. I took my kids to see it. They are 3,4, 8, and 9. I was disgusted by the amount of violence in a movie that had been marketed for kids. The first two were awesome but, this one I just was very disappointed in.

2007-06-19 [iippo]: Spoiler. But why did Will have to have his heart cut out? Davey Jones ferried souls as the captain of the Flying Dutchman before cutting off his heart, which he did because it got broken and was too painful for him to have around... oui? o.O

2007-06-20 [Jeccabee]: that's the confusing part...

2007-06-20 [Lothuriel]: EXACTO!

2007-06-20 [Lothuriel]: Maybe all those years in Davy Jones' locker turned Boot Strap Bill into some sort of twisted sadistic maniac who just wanted to cut his son's heart out and force him to lead the Flying Dutchman for all eternity...or something...

2007-06-20 [Jeccabee]: lol...maybe...or maybe Davy Jones made the rule and everyone else was just so into being the crew they followed orders...I dont know.

2007-06-20 [Lothuriel]: No! I've got it!!! The whole story was awesome to the writers when they were smoking crack. But, then when they came down from their high, it was too late to take it back!

2007-06-21 [Jeccabee]: LOL

2007-06-21 [dayah]: I didn't even know winners were annouce..wooot woot. I got Third...I feel Very special...yay!!

2007-06-21 [Lothuriel]: Oh, I know. We have been chatting so much that I realized it wasn't there anymore. I figured I'd repost it for those who missed it. I felt kinda bad for mucking up the ocmment box.
