2006-08-28 [Perplexity]: *stops just shy of licking the screen*
Oh. heh... I see.
2006-08-28 [moira hawthorne]: wise move there Perplexity! haha... its very sticky.. even when dry... and I stuck my hand on it while painting... and licked it off (my hand) and it was BITTER!
2006-08-28 [Perplexity]: I like a little Splenda in my coffee *nods*
2006-08-28 [moira hawthorne]: I like more water and milk in mine.. and chocolate!
2006-08-28 [Perplexity]: Chocolate can't hurt anything.
2006-08-28 [moira hawthorne]: I agree... tho chicken and chocolate is odd
2006-08-29 [Perplexity]: Probably doesn't go with fish either. *gag*
2006-08-29 [moira hawthorne]: I dont know of any chocolate fish recipes tho...
2006-08-29 [Lady of Lore]: cool banners! And i got a new scanner! Yaya!
2006-08-29 [Kuehne]: I used to work at a fast food chicken resturant (Chick-fil-A).. at night we'd do all kind of wierd stuff and try out new recipes (for ourselves not customers).. we used melted ice cream for a milk wash on the chicken breast, covered it in sugar and breading, then drizzled chocolate over it before frying it... not to bad actually.
2006-08-29 [Kuehne]: seems my little contest is growing in it's fan base
2006-08-29 [moira hawthorne]: yes ... looking forward to seeing more art!
2006-08-30 [*Leric*]: i'll be getting mine up soon. not sure when though. will be hard with school starting up again.
2006-08-30 [Lothuriel]: I have seen them make meat or seafood ice creams with chocolate drizzles on Iron Chef America before. They look gross but, the judges always go nuts over them.
2006-08-30 [moira hawthorne]: still waiting for someone to find a fish chocolate recipe...
2006-08-30 [moira hawthorne]: oh my god there are! 0.o I really dont know what to tkink of those!
2006-08-30 [*Leric*]: finished w/ mine. I'll be able to scan it. possibly tomarrow. If not On monday!
2006-08-30 [Kuehne]: Yay!! I can't wait to see it
2006-08-30 [moira hawthorne]: coool...
2006-08-30 [Yuriona]: Funny... I don't see 'coffee' in the list of acceptable mediums. :P Hmmmm... if I can get my pencil to cooperate with me, I just may have to sketch something shady for this. >:)
2006-08-30 [Lothuriel]: I am working on a character...sh
2006-08-30 [Yuriona]: Do they have to be humanoid or can they be any fantasy race??
2006-08-30 [moira hawthorne]: [-Medium: Graphite, Charcoal, or Ink (any questions concerning <similar medium, ask me] [Kuehne] ... well yuriona if you had been here since the begin of the competion.. or if you had gone back in the comments to see... you would of read the long conversation we had.. and seen that I asked and Kuehne wanted to have me put my coffee art in since she wanted to see how it would turn out...
2006-08-30 [Kuehne]: Yes, I'm a guy.. but what's with all this hostility? I think the coffee piece is great.. besides, it's my competition, so I can bend the rules if I want. I think the coffee piece is very creative. As far as if they need to be humanoid.. not at all. If you want a rogue blob attacking people from the ceiling.. that's fine with me. Be creative. I like seeing creativity.
2006-08-30 [Yuriona]: Uh huh... *shrugs* Whatever. I don't think a rogue blob would be too creative or challenging though. Though I guess if I painted it with coffee it could be considered both. LOL!!
2006-08-30 [Kuehne]: hmm.. a blob of coffee.. attacks people by giving them such a caffine high that their heart literally explodes in their chest. [Yuriona] I took a look at your house.. wonderful art there.. I can't wait to see the peice you submit here.
2006-08-30 [Yuriona]: Yeeeesss.... evil, evil coffee! *hides her coffee cup behind her back* Why thank you sir. *bows* I appreciate the compliment.
2006-08-30 [Yuriona]: EEK!! *douses it with whipped cream* XD
2006-08-30 [Kuehne]: *evil coffee suddenly looses it's power and becomes dormant* Did you kill it??
2006-08-30 [Yuriona]: *grins* Nope... just made it sweet and creamy. *sips*
2006-08-30 [Yuriona]: LOL! Well thanks. :)
2006-08-30 [moira hawthorne]: and I apologize Kuehne I didnt check your house to see if you were male or female.. and as we have only spoken in several art wikis and contests... sex never came up as a topic or consideration.
2006-08-30 [Kuehne]: SEX? You wanna talk about SEX?? OK!! MSG ME!!!
2006-08-30 [Yuriona]: Pervs. :P LOL!
2006-08-30 [Kuehne]: (btw.. apology accepted.. don't sweat it)
2006-08-30 [moira hawthorne]: actually mistress of the dungeon of pain and self proclaim gutter mind.. art is my favorite topic
2006-08-30 [Lothuriel]: Gutter mind? I think I had that once *tries to look innocent*
2006-08-30 [moira hawthorne]: *hands you a package* heres the pill for it
I freely admit to being a pervert... but I usually retrict it to friends I know feel the same way.. wereas Ill talk art to anyone...
2006-08-30 [Yuriona]: LOL! I have a permanent residence in the gutter and like it! XD I know I've seen you in there Loth. *pokes* Hee hee hee...
And who says there's anything sexual about being a dungeon mistress?? I like inflicting pain and suffering on people. Sex is what happens after that.. ROFL!
2006-08-30 [Lothuriel]: *dies* =0p
2006-08-30 [Lothuriel]: ah, man!! *kicks a can* you caught me!!
2006-08-30 [Yuriona]: I knew it! XD
2006-08-30 [Lothuriel]: Indeed....
2006-08-30 [Paul Doyle]: Just curious . . . are there subcategories for instant coffee and fresh-ground coffee and decaf coffee?
2006-08-30 [Lothuriel]: Flavored or non flavored...Gos
2006-08-30 [Paul Doyle]: Maybe I could dump a cup of green tea over a Pauly the Anthro-Dragon sketch, let it dry in the sun, then scan and upload? xD
2006-08-30 [Kyrinn]: I had this odd sense that I was being mentioned in the same sentence as the word "gutter" and knew I had to come by. ^___^ I might give this contest a try too. :D
2006-08-31 [Yoruno]: Uhm... given the fact that some really talented artist are planning to enter, I think I'll give a try too ;) But I'll use regular pencils... or should I try to do something with hot cocoa? O__o
2006-08-31 [Yuriona]: Would a fanart be ok? I had an idea for a sketchy character from one of the many kids' movies I am forced to watched by my children. ^_^ I think I'll stick with pencil though. ;)
2006-08-31 [Perplexity]: I started two last night - one is utter TRASH, but the other one I am gonna finish and enter. Maybe tomorrow I'll be done with it =/
2006-08-31 [Kyrinn]: WooHOO!! I thought about entering something older, but hell, I can just draw something new. More fun that way. ^_^
2006-08-31 [Perplexity]: I like the idea of drawing something new for contests rather than finding something I've done before to fit into it. I have a ninja drawing that might fit here, but I've entered it in contest before, so that'd be a total cop out on my part heheh
2006-08-31 [Yoruno]: Yeah, me too... I used to enter already used pics to some contest, but I think it's not a good idea, as contest suppousedly must promote creativity... so I'll do something new this time ;)
2006-08-31 [Perplexity]: Yeah kinda defeats the purpose of the whole contest idea. I look forward to seeing what you ladies have cookin'!
2006-08-31 [Kyrinn]: I hope i can get it outta my head.. O.o my muses are striking again.. *points to little signs*
2006-08-31 [Yuriona]: Yup... I hope I can the one I have in mind on paper too though it might require watching 'Aladdin & the King of Thieves' again. *dies*
2006-08-31 [Kuehne]: Man.. I'm away for 24 hrs.. and these posts come flying in. I'm so glad that you are showing so much interest in this contest. Fan art is great.. bring it on. And I'm glad that you are all planning on doing something new for the contest. It really does promote creativity.. and I like creativity. ;)
2006-08-31 [Kyrinn]: Yay for creativity! :D *pokes brain*
2006-08-31 [Lothuriel]: *draws, makes it darker* Hey, quit looking over my shoulder!
2006-08-31 [Yuriona]: Creativity sure would be a welcome change for me that's or sure! *pokes hers too*
2006-08-31 [Yuriona]: Wheee!! Just shading to do on my entry! XD
2006-08-31 [Perplexity]: Damn you got that done fast!
2006-08-31 [Yuriona]: Yup. :P It is a Disney fanart so it wasn't all that hard. LOL!
2006-08-31 [Paul Doyle]: Well, I do have an inked version of Darth Paranoia (I think the colored version is better, but that's just me). I realize this is not new-to-the-con
2006-09-01 [Lothuriel]: Dang, Yuri!! That is awesome!!
2006-09-01 [Yuriona]: Thanks. :) I had to go through another screening of 'Aladdin and the King of Thieves' but at least my kids didn't mind. My eldest daughter loved the drawing but wanted me to colour it. LOL!
2006-09-01 [Paul Doyle]: Ooooo . . . sweet, Yuri :-D
2006-09-01 [Yuriona]: Thanks. :) Its nice to know my pencil does still cooperate once in a while.
2006-09-01 [Kuehne]: the Darth Paranoia is pretty good.. pretty funny too. I never said that the mood here had to be serious.. but it seems to lack that stealthy quality. Personally, I'd like to see something else from you, if you wouldn't mind.. something with a more "kill you from the shadows" feel to it. Good work on that piece though.
2006-09-01 [Yoruno]: Yay! Nice pic, Yuri ^___^
2006-09-01 [Kuehne]: Yes, yuri.. nice pic.. i forgot to ty for it
2006-09-01 [Yuriona]: No worries. :) Any compliment is appreciated, even late ones. LOL!
2006-09-01 [Perplexity]: Nice job on the cloth folds, Yuri. Definitely a shady character that. What's he doing there? *tries to peek over his shoulder*
2006-09-01 [Kyrinn]: Dirty brain.. hee hee.. *runs and hides*
2006-09-01 [Perplexity]: =9 I saw his peepee!
2006-09-01 [Kyrinn]: LMAO!!
2006-09-01 [Lothuriel]: Looks like he is saying, go away or I will thwart you...that's hot
2006-09-01 [Kyrinn]: Hes beeing sneaky. I like sneaky. Dont they know that when they try to hide is when I eyeball them the most? XD
2006-09-01 [Yuriona]: Thanks Plex. I thought I was being easy on myself since the only part of his face I had to draw was the eye but I forgot about the cloak. O_o gah... I killed several q-tips with that one.
2006-09-01 [Lothuriel]: Q-Tips are awesome, no?
2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: hehe...I actually discovered it by accident. I couldn't find my blending tool so I improvised! I have been hooked ever since!
2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: ooooh...I love it!!
2006-09-02 [Yuriona]: Oh sure Plex. Just go and one up me why don't ya?? LOL! Excellent work as always. XD
2006-09-02 [Perplexity]: Q-tips are very handy - better than your finger, for blending pencil(not for picking noses...)... which I have used too lol but boy that is messy, and it always ends up on my nose...
2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: 0__o....*rolls around laughing*
2006-09-02 [Perplexity]: I meant the lead always ends up on my nose... not the uh... other...thing.
2006-09-02 [Perplexity]: Thank you, Yuri! Actually the first picture I drew, looked too similar to yours so I decided on a close up (also because I wasn't clever enough to figure out a way around drawing all those bricks like you did).
2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: *nods*
2006-09-02 [Yuriona]: *grins* Aww... the bricks were the easy part. You have mad graphite skills Plexie doll. XD
2006-09-02 [Paul Doyle]: Yep, I'll try to squeeze in something new and strictly adhering to the rules, if there is enough time. Pauly the Anthro-Dragon/Darth Paranoia is just too goofy and cheerful to be a suitable villain xD
2006-09-02 [Kyrinn]: I thought that technique looked familiar, lol.. :D
2006-09-02 [moira hawthorne]: nice ink ninja
2006-09-02 [Kuehne]: WOW!! I love the new entries. Awesome work, all of you who have entered.
2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: How sad Nathan!
2006-09-02 [nathie]: i couldn´t resist. i love sketching.
2006-09-02 [moira hawthorne]: awesome nathan...
2006-09-02 [Perplexity]: Bill Parcells has been on my hit list for ages...
jk I dunno who that is lol =9 Thanks, Pauly!
Very nice new entries, you two. The contest is filling up quick eh?
2006-09-02 [Kyrinn]: Oooo new ones! :D WOw, I was gone for the night,and I come back to see new entries! All are so awesome!
2006-09-02 [Kuehne]: filling up a lot faster that I had thought it would. That's a great entry Nathan. I'm just glad I'm doing a poll and not having to judge all these myself.. I could never decide
2006-09-02 [Kyrinn]: I hope I can get mine done before there are ten entries.. 8O
2006-09-02 [Perplexity]: Hurry hurry, Kyrinn!!
2006-09-02 [Kyrinn]: *frantically scribbling* I do have one I drew recently, like in the last few weeks. I may put that one up until I can get the current one out of my head..
2006-09-02 [Kuehne]: More drawings.. yay!! *begins thinking of next contest theme*
2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: I like the "unusual mediums" category. THat could prove to be interesting.
2006-09-02 [Kuehne]: That could be a good category.. why don't you open up that contest.. or did you want to enter it ;)
2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: It was your idea, silly! I have tons of contests going right now anyhow.
2006-09-02 [Kuehne]: it was my idea?!? Wow!! I'm a genius!!
2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: 2006-08-19 Kuehne: i'm interested in how it looks. Perhaps that'll be my next competition.. "Unusual Mediums".. or perhaps "Medium: Household Goods"
2006-09-02 [Kuehne]: I'm a genius with a short term... what was i saying?
2006-09-02 [moira hawthorne]: hahaha... you should have the link here... but Il go see it in art contest..
2006-09-02 [Kuehne]: Does Hawthorne know what I'm asking?
2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: Not sure...
2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: It would probably be a good idea.
2006-09-02 [moira hawthorne]: oh I was looking for the next contest link... "Unusual Mediums".. or perhaps "Medium: Household Goods" on art contests wiki... .. do you know art contest isnt what you think it is.. ???
and I was laughin at '...16:55:16 Kuehne: I'm a genius with a short term... what was i saying?...'
2006-09-02 [Lothuriel]: Ah, I see that now. Art Contest is actually a fun little idea. I checked it out. Too bad it has died.
2006-09-02 [Perplexity]: *plays TAPS on the horn*
2006-09-02 [Kuehne]: yeah.. art contestS.. not art contest.. sorry
2006-09-02 [Yuriona]: Sorry... had to add the HR tags. It was bugging me. ^_^'
2006-09-02 [nathie]: yuriona: yay! the hr´s, i was short before adding them.
kyrinn: goldie looks so sweet "peed off"! ^_______^
2006-09-02 [Kyrinn]: *grin* Thanks, Nath. :D he is kinda pissy..
2006-09-02 [nathie]: ah, i love them pissy. the more, the better. ^_^
2006-09-02 [Kyrinn]: Its said that I love the pissy ones the best. *snickers*
2006-09-02 [nathie]: ahahaha! true. XD such angry little and sweet guys. ^^
(but im not sure - the dragon - he isn´t a "little guy". O.o)
2006-09-02 [Kyrinn]: nope, hes not little. Probably fairly tall. ^_^ Notlike my other shorties I have, lol
2006-09-02 [Yuriona]: *whispers* She has a real thing for short guys. ;) LOL!
2006-09-02 [nathie]: ahaha - now it comes out. LOL good night to you, for me it´s bedtime i think.
2006-09-02 [Kyrinn]: Well, yeah, I do! *whispers* even my shortest ones are taller than me though..
2006-09-03 [nathie]: aaah, thats the secret. *grins*
2006-09-04 [*Leric*]: um..ok. I'm getting mine up by tuesday. (2 days. so don't vote w/ out mine, ok?^^)
2006-09-05 [Lady of Lore]: Mine coming in the very near future!
2006-09-05 [jsun]: I guess we'll see if my current piece of work is finished before we reach 10 here... if so, she's going up :)
2006-09-05 [moira hawthorne]: oooh what you workin in?
2006-09-05 [moira hawthorne]: yes I know tthe digital one you are workin on....
Im hoping there will be a Sketchy Characters 2
2006-09-05 [Kuehne]: I've had some great response to this contest.. not too bad for my first one, eh? Well, thanks to the great popularity, I already have been entertaining the idea of Sketchy Characters 2. Looks like I have two votes for it, any others? You think I should add some little twist to it perhaps?
2006-09-05 [Paul Doyle]: For the proposed Part Two, have "Freestylin' Hot Beverages" as a mandatory part of the mixed media? xD It would be interesting :)
2006-09-05 [Yoruno]: Yeah! That way I'll be able to do something like "Media: hot milk on toasted bread" XD *ahem* But jokes appart, I'd like you to have a second part ;)
2006-09-05 [Paul Doyle]: With my current backlog, I probably won't get mine here in on the first one, in good time. So a second one might be nice :)
2006-09-05 [jsun]: Yay, looks like there'll be one for sure lol... Maybe you could name it Sinister Characters or something like that so that we wouldn't be limited on the media for the second one. Altough,I'm not sure if that would be sticking to your contest idea so much
2006-09-05 [Kuehne]: Ok.. I'll do a second Sketchy Characters.. but there will be a slight twist. I'm not telling what that twist is until i have it up and going. As for Paul, have you already started the piece for this project? I'll need to figure out if it will still fit with the twist, or if we should hold off for you to get your peice in this competion
2006-09-05 [Kuehne]: And I forgot to say it.. bad me.. wonderful new entry
2006-09-05 [Yoruno]: Yay! Thanks! ^^ However, I'd like to improve him... :P
2006-09-05 [nathie]: wow - only 2 entries to go! woot! is there a page where all the finished entries go after the sketchiness? will anyone work on the sketches here more? i´m curiious how they look finished!
2006-09-05 [Perplexity]: I think mine is as finished as it's gonna get heheh but yeah I'd be interested to see if anyone else goes further with their art, too.
2006-09-05 [Lady of Lore]: Mine's not all the way done either but i wanted to get it up here....
2006-09-05 [moira hawthorne]: wow thats the contest filled!
2006-09-06 [Kuehne]: The sequel is already in the works.. and this contest has reached its end quicker then i had expected. Now, let me see if i can figure out how to do this poll thing.. hmmmm....
2006-09-06 [Kuehne]: Ok.. it looks like I did it right.
2006-09-06 [Araglas]: Wow much more art, ^_^ I like it all but I already have a favorite. ^_^
2006-09-06 [Kuehne]: Wow.. the votes are really coming in. Looks like it might be a close competition.
2006-09-06 [Kuehne]: Ok.. the sequel is up!!
2006-09-07 [Zauberin]: ooo i almost voted for moira.. but something else caught my fancy. :P
2006-09-07 [moira hawthorne]: well thx u love...
2006-09-09 [Lothuriel]: Darn...I missed another. *kicks her stupid scanner*
2006-09-09 [moira hawthorne]: another one started right away..
2006-09-10 [Kuehne]: Wow! This competition is really bringing in the votes! This is awesome!
2006-09-11 [Remos Page]: dam i miss this one !
2006-09-12 [Kuehne]: wow.. almost 100 votes already!! that's great! Makes me wonder if the voting will ever slow down or come to an end so i can announce the winners.
2006-09-13 [Kuehne]: It seems we kinda got stuck at 99 votes.. and I don't want this contest to malinger. I'll announce the winner on 15 Sep.. so if anyone still wants to vote.. get those votes in ASAP
2006-09-14 [Pinup_princess]: cool pics ppl
2006-09-16 [Kuehne]: Alright.. i guess the contest is over and the winners will be announced soon
2006-09-16 [moira hawthorne]: Wais Hail! congrats to the winners... and a wonderful contest to all...
2006-09-16 [Kyrinn]: Congradulation
2006-09-17 [Kuehne]: i don't really know how to give the awards to these persons for thier houses.
2006-09-17 [moira hawthorne]: message them?
2006-09-17 [Kuehne]: lol.. at first i read "massage them".. although they might like it, I don't know that it will work
2006-09-17 [moira hawthorne]: lol! hehehehe....
2006-09-17 [nathie]: i´d love to have a proper massage, kuehne! XD
2006-09-17 [jsun]: oo oo add me to the massage list! arg! I didn't win or even enter but I've cheered from the sidelines AND I'm a good buddy of Mr. Ninja Nathie!
2006-09-18 [nathie]: hahaha - thats a good idea! see, kuehne, you should open a massage studio or something. all people here who are coloring digital are permanently stiffed (i mean the shoulders/neck XD) and, yes, give cheerleader jsun a massage too! ^_^
2006-09-18 [moira hawthorne]: just dug my way out of photoshop... im very stiff... and not in a good way
2006-09-18 [Kuehne]: well.. it's more fun when males massage females and females massage males.. don't you think? ;)
2006-09-18 [moira hawthorne]: I dont care.. Im BI... anyone with strong hands will do...
2006-09-18 [Kuehne]: ok.. ty Cia_mar
2006-09-23 [nathie]: btw - i´m not curious. XD what will happen now? no message, no poll results at all?
2006-09-23 [moira hawthorne]: you didnt notice the top of the page?
2006-09-23 [Kyrinn]: You won, nathie!! *hugs*
2006-09-23 [nathie]: *wipes away the tomatoes of my eyes* yes, err - thanks. ^_^
*blush and hides*
2006-09-24 [Kuehne]: i guess i should msg the winners with a congrats msg, huh? lol
2006-09-24 [moira hawthorne]: I thought you did...
what did you get distracted and forget?
2006-09-24 [Kuehne]: lol.. yes, actually
2006-09-24 [moira hawthorne]: *stares at the pile of laundry the cat is sitting on* yah... I know... I got about 100 photos to sort thru and 30 WIPs and sheets of to do list...
goood news got to go art supply shopping... I got this lovely black paper... just got to keep it away from little hands... and his sissors of doom!
