2009-06-20 [Piercedskull]: *cries* No matter how hard I try, I can't draw him!

2009-06-21 [Ravenclaw]: When's the deadline?

2009-07-03 [The Matter of Splatter]: Hulk is easy :) I wish I got him instead...I need to find acess to a scannnerrrr!

2009-07-03 [Piercedskull]: *cries*

2009-07-04 [Lord Dog]: Hey Pierced, Which version are you going for? There are simpler versions Like the Kirby/Lee era ...Or is the problem visualizing>

2009-07-04 [Piercedskull]: Visualizing.

2009-07-04 [Ravenclaw]: Deadline???

2009-07-04 [Lord Dog]: I believe Loth, didn't place a deadline because this is more of a collective than a contest, she is trying to build an Elftown -based gallery of Marvel.

2009-07-04 [Lord Dog]: Pierced, just look at the Marvel page and other fan art then to help you visualize a pose. This may help even though it is more Ben Grim than the Hulk

2009-07-04 [Piercedskull]: *blinkblink* Oh.. my... GOD! I just had the perfect idea! *glomps [Lord Dog]*

2009-07-04 [Flisky]: Anyone else think it's ironic that I got number 13 and the Black Cat?

2009-07-04 [Piercedskull]: *blink* That... IS ironic...

2009-07-04 [Piercedskull]: I'm making something funny for hulk^^

2009-07-05 [Ravenclaw]: I thank you Sir.

2009-07-06 [Lord Dog]: your welcome

2009-07-16 [SlightlySpiked]: i finally got moved and can finish loki :) when is the deadline btw

2009-07-16 [Nite_Owl]: Yeah I just realized I can't draw Iron Man (O,o) I might just have to take something directly from a reference and then spiff it up or something...bleh, I'll figure it out

2009-07-16 [SlightlySpiked]: lol i might hav trouble too dnt worry

2009-07-16 [ririmu_chan]: 9 months... just pointin it out here.

2009-07-17 [SlightlySpiked]: huh?

2009-07-17 [Lothuriel]: Nine months for what?

2009-07-17 [Lothuriel]: Oh and [SlightlySpiked], there isn't a deadline.

2009-07-17 [XxTsomexX]: sweeeeeett!!! :D I'm so excited!!

2009-07-19 [SlightlySpiked]: yayness!!!!!

2009-07-26 [XxTsomexX]: wait, calisto is on here twice >.>'

2009-07-27 [Ravenclaw]: Yeah, numbers 8 and 27 both have Callisto. I bet it's just an oversight.

2009-07-27 [XxTsomexX]: maybe...? so do I still draw her or am I going to get assigned a different one?

2009-07-27 [Ravenclaw]: I'd say once Loth notices she'll rectify the situation.

2009-07-27 [XxTsomexX]: okie dokie ^^ I can work on Cannonball till then ^^

2009-07-28 [SlightlySpiked]: lol maybe draw both? whose to say you wouldnt do more detail or something?

2009-07-28 [XxTsomexX]: Maybe... I'm not 100% sure... I'll just wait until Loth sees and gives a thumbs up or whatever :)

2009-07-28 [SlightlySpiked]: thas a good idea

2009-08-03 [The Matter of Splatter]: Hey guys, haven't got anything up yet due to lack of a scanner (STILL!) but in the meantime here is a wiki of me doodles in case you'd care to 'ave a look Hall of Superheros In the meantime I'll get my submissions done asap...boy am I glad there's no deadline

2009-08-03 [SlightlySpiked]: do we need to send you your own personal scanner? lol jmwu

2009-08-03 [The Matter of Splatter]: Lmao maybe! I'm poor as dirt as I'm sure a lot of us are because the economy is sooooo wonderful, and ever cent I have goes towards me bills :( I wish I could be like that guy from office space and just say I don't like bills....I don't think I'm gonna pay them anymore. haha

2009-08-03 [SlightlySpiked]: lol that would be nice, its hard to find a good pating job these days...

2009-08-03 [The Matter of Splatter]: Yes indeed. Hopefully when I graduate with masters I won't have to worry about that

2009-08-06 [SlightlySpiked]: true true wat are u studying for?

2009-08-06 [iippo]: Sorry to say, but you still have to worry about finding a job even if/when you have a masters :P At least here you do. A friend of mine from uni was told a number of times that because of his masters he was over-qualified to work somewhere o.O

2009-08-06 [Ravenclaw]: Over qualified is a fancy way of saying "We don't like you, go somewhere else."

2009-08-06 [The Matter of Splatter]: Hahaha yes I know. I've been told I'm better off with just a bachelors so I might stop short. Even then it is still hard to be employed. I am undecided as of yet, but its a toss up between art and applied music

2009-08-07 [Nite_Owl]: I'll be working towards a Masters in English to be a teacher or professor, and everyone seems to think Masters is the way to go so I guess in that case it might be good to reach it at some point. I'd probably stick with a BA first off until I actually get a job though :P

2009-08-07 [Ravenclaw]: I should start at Pizza Hut soon... thanks for making me feel like a failure at life. Thanks lol

2009-08-07 [Nite_Owl]: Haha! Hey, it's a job. More than what I'll probably end up with :P More than a lot of people are ending up with lately, actually.

2009-08-07 [iippo]: No no, I totally think you should do a Masters. It builds character, you'll learn a lot not only about your subject but yourself, about life, about learning etc... I had the best time on my Masters, I'd do it again over and over, and still learn loads every time. :3

And hey, in my last job, for six months I was one over-qualified data entry clerk, too :P But it was a job, and it was actually kind of a nice job. Although it was odd that I had a higher degree than the head of HR :P Just goes to show that qualifications aren't really anything more than pieces of paper. Experience and attitude matter more. I kinda like the idea of doing odd jobs all my life and ending up with a resume 7 pages long :P

2009-08-07 [The Matter of Splatter]: Yes I kind of like that idea too :D I have a BA in graphic design, I plan on getting masters in art and music, and then I shall try for something like digital illustration.

2009-08-07 [iippo]: I really want to go back to uni to do music, and lit. And then I might stop. Or not... >_> Srsl, what better thing is there to do in the world?

2009-08-08 [Lothuriel]: [XxTsomexX], what's your question exactly?

2009-08-08 [SlightlySpiked]: ima study geology and art!!!!!!! XD

2009-08-08 [iippo]: The question was that number 8 and number 27 both have Callisto...?

2009-08-08 [Ravenclaw]: because Loth has been busy and hasn't had a chance to change it.

2009-08-08 [iippo]: Yes, I'm just repeating it to her since she asked and our jammering bumped the original question off the page :P

2009-08-08 [Ravenclaw]: I messaged her about it. Figured she'd been busy.

2009-08-08 [The Matter of Splatter]: Well you could always do varying versions. There's three major differences that I know of. One being the age of apocalypse callisto, in which she was a pirate I believe. There's the uncanny x-men one, as wel all know and then the ultimates. The only difference between the traditional one and the ultimates is that the ultimate version has tentacles under her eye patch. I was also going to point out Kraven the Hunters one time lover, but then I remembered her name is Calypso :I

2009-08-11 [SlightlySpiked]: XD :)

2009-08-11 [The Matter of Splatter]: I'd just do traditional and age of apocalypse :)

2009-08-11 [Piercedskull]: gah, I give up... They can give hulk to someone else, I just can't draw him...

2009-08-11 [The Matter of Splatter]: Give him to meeeeee!! The hulk is my all time favorite (if I havent said so enough haha)

2009-08-11 [Piercedskull]: (lol) You can have him^^

2009-08-11 [The Matter of Splatter]: Haha cool cool. If I cant draw him for this, I think I'll do a sketch of him anyway, just for the hell of it.

2009-08-11 [Piercedskull]: Otay^^

2009-08-12 [SlightlySpiked]: hulk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XD

2009-08-12 [The Matter of Splatter]: It'll be sweet. I'll add it to me wiki.

2009-08-13 [SlightlySpiked]: yayness!!!

2009-08-14 [Lothuriel]: [The Matter of Splatter] is right about the different versions of Calisto. Since the character is chosen by dice roll, I am quite surprised more people don't share a character. I have several others to add to the list.  However, if the two entrants would like to be assigned different characters, then that is fine by me too.

2009-08-14 [XxTsomexX]: I can try to draw her ^^ the only version I know is the tentacle-y one XD

2009-08-14 [maryanne]: I knew the one from the old cartoon. Didn't even know about the tentacles until I was looking her up for this. :)

2009-08-15 [The Matter of Splatter]: Unfortunately, I did know about this because I am a geek and have devoted quite a bit of my life to comic books :l

2009-08-15 [Ravenclaw]: OK Splatter, answer me this one if you can, cause I've been confused since X-3 came out and I'm too lame to do the research on my own, Calisto was never a fave of mine.

Has she always had the ability to locate mutants? And she never had super speed right?

2009-08-16 [The Matter of Splatter]: No her power isn't locating mutants at all. She trained herself as a massively good fighter and tracker. All her powers are enhanced sight, meaning she can see in the dark very well too, enhanced smell, touch, and taste. She's also pretty strong and stuff, but I think thats just from living in the Morlock tunnels.

2009-08-16 [The Matter of Splatter]: Last I read any comics with her in it where the incanny x-men when she clipped angels pin feathers and kept him in the tunnels, when she battled storm for X-Factor when the Marauders totally annihilated all of them, and the most recent I've read is when she was sick and encouraging Marrow to join the X-Men...which isn't so recent anymore I'm guessing.

2009-08-16 [Ravenclaw]: I remember from the original show, the scenario with Angel but it was Cyclops instead.

Thanks btw, [shadow of darkness] and I have been arguing back and forth about her for a few days now lol.

2009-08-16 [The Matter of Splatter]: Hahaha no problem. Glad to hear that decades with my nose in comic books counts for something. Too bad that in recent years the plot lines have gone to hell and so has the art. They keep remaking everything for the movie going audience who wasn't there from the begining i.e. that ultimates crap amongst other things.

2009-08-16 [Ravenclaw]: I have to admit that I like the movies. But then again comics weren't readily available when I was a kid. I've amassed a collection since though. Just a few series though.

2009-08-18 [The Matter of Splatter]: I like the movies...when looking at them from a non comic fan perspective. As stories in and of themselves, not bad. If you are an avid comic book fan looking for some vague continuity, however, you'll always be disappointed with those movies far, the new Punisher, the new Hulk, and Iron Man where freakin' awesome...I think though that's because Marvel finally has their own studio.

2009-08-18 [Ravenclaw]: There where some definite inconsistencies but most are understandable considering that they like to tie in a thread of reality. X-3 would have been a complete flop I think if they'd decided to stay true to the original Phoenix origins.

I preferred Tom Jane's Punisher but I didn't dislike the Marvel Knights variation. Chocked full of total ass kickery it was. I think it was the cast and the comedy in the original that makes me prefer it. I really like Rebecca Romaine. I think we can both agree that the Dolf Lundren version from the 80's was a total dweeb fest.

How did you like Wolverine?

2009-08-19 [The Matter of Splatter]: Well I think as far as the X-Men goes, most of the plot could have stayed...3 was by far the worst, i.e. Rogue giving up her powers, age inconsistensies, Prof X being incinerated ect ect...I hated that one most of all...but having them in spandex and whatnot would have just looked silly.

The Punisher has always been one of my favorites and I can happily say the marvel knights version blew the other out of the water. It took the Punisher like days to meticulously plan to kill a total of maybe six or so people, in the new one there was little thinking and more killing, how it should be. Plus the MK version had in more of a wartime mindset with less of a conscious. Haha the Dolf version had ninjas at least :P back then he would have beena great candidate to play the punisher..too bad no one would have known because the dumbass director only put the skull inisgnia on the hilt of franks knife for a split second...they should have called it Frank Castle: AWOL cop

Wolverine is another of my favorites and suprisingly they didn't mess him up to bad or his story line...I mean aside from the fact that besides deadpool, sabretooth and he being in weapon X, no one else in weapon X was in there...amongst many other tiny scrutinies but it wasnt to bad at all

2009-08-19 [Flisky]: Some of you might not have heard, but my scanner got smashed. Literally, completely beyond repair. I'm gonna try to finish my piece on the computer, but it definitely won't be my best work.

2009-08-19 [Ravenclaw]: Xavier isn't exactly dead, he just transferred his consciousness into his twin. Considering that I don't think Jean would have allowed the Phoenix to kill Summers. She'd have dropped his consciousness in the astral plain imho.

I loved Wolverine, anything where Hugh Jackman runs around killing people, I'm gonna go see. Well, anything where Hugh Jackman runs around, or walks or just stands still, I'm gonna go see lol. But the only things I didn't like about it where the lack of Ryan Reynolds as DP and the time line. RR gets one good scene and his funniest line is "Take a sword to your ex-girlfriends wedding, people remember." I was so stoked about him playing DP too and he's a big DP fan and really wants to do a movie. I think the only person who would have done as well would have been Dane Cook.

The other thing that chapped my butt was that Logan wasn't alive during the Civil War. While it was totally cool and awesome to see he was born 1880-something.

That's about it, other than they totally shanked Rose from the storyline.

2009-08-21 [The Matter of Splatter]: Well I understood what Xavier did, but I had no clue he had I twin. Remember I dropped off the comic book map sometime in between 1997-1999. The art got too childish and the stories either to..noir, or the original stories what too freaking messed up to cater to a new audience...but I agree, Jean would have never harmed Scott if she could help it in anyway.

As far as Wolverine I liked that they stuck with the Origin storyline as that was a recent story arc I actually liked. I don't understand why they called Maverick "zero", made him asian and killed him off. I dont know who the black guy and electro boy where but they as well as the blob didn't belong. Gambit could have also been kept out, and I hated how they totally cut out all of the weapon X training, and every single bit of alpha flight and dept H...but that would have been one hell of a long movie...not to mention his time in Japan training as a samurai. Plus it all happened way too quickly anyway...and an adamantium bullet? Gay. I think ryan reynolds was a good choice for wade. he had the mouth and the build. Plus hes more of a funny/obnoxious, wherein dane cook is more of a condescending asshole who has a talent in stating the obvious. I sincerely hate what they did to him at the to sum it up, the process of logan becoming weapon X way too short, half of weapon X was replaced by needless characters, alpha flight or Japan never made an appearance, why on Earth was gayclops involved, why did they turn deadpool into a homo....but I digress haha...aside from that, decent movie. One movie I saw last night though that I never ever wished I had was The legend of chun li. What a train wreck.

2009-08-22 [Ravenclaw]: Xaviers twin was originally a girl, whom he apparently killed once he became self aware in the womb and killed because the the ferocious evil inside of her. So she was born brain dead, for the sake of the movie they switched her to a twin. I never read it, thank [shadow of darkness] for the info download.

We agree about the bullet. We all know about the mystical sword that he gave Summers. Bullet? Please. I get why a lot of people didn't like Wolverine and yes there was a lot of needlessness for sake of audience. But as total ass kickery goes, and that's how I usually rate the majority of films I watch, with The Kickass-o-Meeter. I thought it was totally showing up at midnight to get the game worthy. I sound like such a dude lol.

The Legend of Chun Li would have been better without Miss Smallville clogging up the potential awesomeness of it. Yeah yeah she's got like fifteen belts in a bunch of different crap but I don't effing like her. I was so happy when Lex thought he killed her!

2009-08-22 [The Matter of Splatter]: Ah. A friend of mine informed me that said events with Xavier occured in Uncanny X-Men in recent years, apparently Beast now looks like beauty and the beast and is gay...what the fuck man...I am glad I have not bought a comic book in a very long time.

The only reason the bullet pissed me off is because his memory was erased by decades long training and brainwashing. He wasn't a natural killer, he was made into's like at the end of the movie they said oh yeah he isnt supposed to have his memory! Blammo! Problem solved....but the action was freakin' awesome...only the Wolverine I know would have killed a hell of a lot more people.

Here's the low down on Cun Li: First off, bad choice for a main character. Chun li is a muscular woman with huge legs and a nice rack, not a skeleton from some horrible superman soap opera. Secondly, they made Charlie (known as Nash in Japan) a total weiner. In the story line, he starts off as guiles right hand man in the army, turns interpol and is killed by bison via explosion. Guile never made an appearance. Gen trained Chun Li's dad, not Chun Li...I also might add that Gen is the only mortal man that Akuma fears aside fropm Ryu and his own brother (Akuma being the red haired ryu knockoff with prayer beads)...Akuma being like the strongest character in the game...and yet Bison kicked his ass with ease. Balrog lasted longer than Vega, how is beyond me. Chun Li never became poor, she joined interpol to find Bison....ontop of that she kills M Bison. Thats retarded...and at the very end amidst two boring stories (bison/chun li) and one unnecessary story (the cops) they throw in the tournament aspect...that movie was so freakin horrible.

2009-08-23 [Ravenclaw]: Last I heard Beast looked like a blue Tony the Tiger.

Yeah, besides, how hard would it have been to have a telepath just wipe his head? It would have at least seemed more realistic that a freaking adamantium bullet. It's also his healing factor that causes a lot of his memory loss. It's weird but he suppresses things. His mind will completely get rid of something that would be considered too difficult to live with. By the time he and Rose made it to Alberta he'd forgotten his name and where they'd came from and that was after the shit went down at his parents house. When he slashed Dog and killed Logan and his mother stuck a shotgun in her mouth. But I understand how something like that is difficult to translate onto film.

I don't know much about street fighter. I do remember watching the one with Jean Claud Van Damm and Raoul Julia when I was a kid.

2009-08-23 [The Matter of Splatter]: Yeah and that's totally retarded.

It only seems logically that his mind would compensate just as much as his body would. That's why Deadpool is so fucked up. The cancer continually eats away at him, especially his brain, so his mind is constantly rewriting itself because of that making him a total nutjob. All in all minus those few things it wasn't too shabby.

I know a ton about street fighter because I am a dork like that :P

Which one of you has the x men wiki?

2009-08-23 [Ravenclaw]: I've got 3 that I run. X-Men United, New X-Men United and Generation-x

X-1 is the most popular with the most players.

x-2 is the same game but set 10 years in the future of X-1. All the original students from the first one have grown up and come back to teach. You can't be a teacher unless you played the same character in X-1.

Gen-x is set roughly 17 years in the future of X-2 and features the products of the couples from the second game. But instead of actually running the school, because the original teams have disappeared and they are sort of under S.H.I.E.L.D.'S thumb, or so Shield likes to think.

2009-08-23 [The Matter of Splatter]: hehe wow you certainly put a lot of effort into them! Very impressed. I considered making a character of my own but I don't know..

2009-08-23 [Ravenclaw]: Most people join X-1 first, it's more user friendly and not as prone to spurts of inactivity as the last two are. It's sort of a proving ground before we allow anyone else to join x-2 or 3.

Applications are closed at the moment but that'll change within the next two weeks or so. I need to do a micro-jump and then a mini-jump to get things going. But if you want to come up with someone that's plenty of time to get them figured out. There are two pending characters from other people too who are waiting to join.

I always encourage people to scan the bios (X-Characters)of the other characters so they don't duplicate anyone's powers and I always go over the new arrivals to make sure everyone has a slice of the Unique Pie.

2009-08-23 [The Matter of Splatter]: Very cool. I shall consider it :) If I can find my imagination again

2009-08-24 [Ravenclaw]: I've usually got tons of ideas for new mutants if you find yourself blocked. I spend half my time negotiating powers with new players any way because they don't take the time out to check the x-characters page.

I'll never forget the argument I had with a guy who doesn't play with us any more. He wanted his character to shape shift into a polar and a grizzly bear and then a weird bipedal hybrid of the two. In the end I made him choose between the two and after he consistently disregarded the rules (inactivity) I killed him with a wayward meteor.

2009-08-25 [The Matter of Splatter]: LMAO thats awesome. That seems more suited for a manga or something. Powers have to be finite, and there has to be a weakness, or humanity involved, otherwise you have another Superman.

2009-08-25 [Ravenclaw]: yeah, we always screen for overly powerful characters. People tend to compile a bunch of powers on say a 16 year old. We like to limit that in the beginning and when the player is ready to level up we allow "Latent Mutations" which always wreaks nice fun havoc for the other students.

Totally off topic and having nothing to do with Marvel, Batman: Arkham Asylum is poop your pants awesome! Though the "new" dynamic fighting reminds me a lot of Wolverine: Uncaged. Not complaining though.

2009-08-25 [SlightlySpiked]: <img:stuff/m-jpg.gif>

2009-08-25 [The Matter of Splatter]: Well plus if the premise is that they are younger students, they should be learning to control themselves anyway...very few mutants are born incredibly powerful, those that are are usually locked up or totally fucked (i.e. Legion or Proteus)

Yeah that is a game I really really wanna play :( Unfortunately right now all I have is a PS2

2009-08-25 [maryanne]: Yeah, the point of X-men (and Marvel comics in general) is to have people with powers who aren't happy to have them.

2009-08-25 [SlightlySpiked]: aa lot of them do love their powers, they just hate being discriminated for having them

2009-08-25 [The Matter of Splatter]: I wouldn't say it's a matter of loving, it's a matter of coming to terms with them. if they loved them then they'd be using them indiscriminantly despite the disdain of the status quo, thus making them villains in a manner of speaking.

2009-08-26 [Ravenclaw]: It's all just a bunch of good clean fun. *campy thumbs up*

2009-08-26 [The Matter of Splatter]: Hahaha nice

2009-08-26 [SlightlySpiked]: true true lmao *thumbs up*

2009-08-27 [Ravenclaw]: Good clean fun that translates into awesome ass video games where you get to rip people apart and stuff.

2009-08-27 [SlightlySpiked]: ooh i love those games!!!! prototype for the win!!!!!

2009-08-27 [Ravenclaw]: Prototype and Spider-Man Web of Shadows is the EXACT same game. And I don't mean that just because it's the same cityscape. Navigation, the pods, the nav-points all the same but with a prototype gloss. Even down to the symbiote pod things.

2009-08-27 [Nite_Owl]: Well, originality is dead. Buy both for twice the fun and pretend it's new :P

2009-08-27 [Ravenclaw]: We've got Spidey, a buddy had Prototype. I might borrow it after I relinquish his Call of Duty 4.

Like I said, Wolverine: Uncaged and Batman: Arkham Asylum are very similar. Wolverine lunges, Batman grapples, Wolverine climbs on ledges, Batman climbs on ledges, Wolvie finds Dog Tags, Batman finds Riddler Clues.

I'm not complaining, not one bit. It makes me feel more familiar with the games and on a whole both are different enough to keep me interested for hours. I'd recommend both to any one. It's just the idea of two video games from different comic companies looking and playing so much alike. It's like Batman is Wolvie 2.0, game wise.

2009-08-27 [SlightlySpiked]: wooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2009-08-27 [Ravenclaw]: is that Woooo as in "Wooo sounds awesome!" or "Woooo, your so lame"? Cause I made my fiance wait in line to pick up the Arkham collectors edition at midnight Tuesday morning. That's how awesome/lame I am lol.

behold the awesomisity:

2009-08-27 [Nite_Owl]: Don't worry, do did my buddy Sara XD She REALLY wanted that Batarang. I just heard that they've finally come out with a PS3 I can afford without crying, so I guess I'll finally get it, along with the many games I can't be without :D

2009-08-27 [Ravenclaw]: You can play as the Joker on PS3 and the batarang isn't all that it's cracked up to be. It doesn't even come off the display stand and I can't tell if it's plastic or wood lol. It looks pretty cool but how fun is a bat shape on a display stand any way? Not like I was gonna try to snipe birds out of a tree or anything, but it's be cool to take pictures with or something.

2009-08-27 [Nite_Owl]: I've been holding my breath for God of War 3. Got to play the demo at Comic-Con--SO awesome! :D And I can't wait for Heavy Rain either. Hopefully Prototype and Infamous are worth buying, since I'll probably get those first.

2009-08-28 [Ravenclaw]: Rent Prototype, if you played Spidey: Web of Shadows you'll be uber disappointed.

I remember when Heavy Rain was a movie with Morgan Freeman and Christian Slater. Good movie.

2009-08-28 [Nite_Owl]: I haven't played either, so I'm safe. I don't have a PS3 and the brother's got the XBox, so I haven't played much of anything good lately heh

2009-08-28 [The Matter of Splatter]: Hehe you guys are on a totally different level to me. I and my guitar completely forgot about all the new systems, technological advances and television shows/most movies

2009-08-29 [Ravenclaw]: I wanted a PS3 but Sod demanded an X-box 360. I can't complain, I like it and even though I suck ass at Halo it's the main reason I love the 360.

2009-08-29 [Nite_Owl]: I looove Gears of War, but I don't mind only getting to play it when me bro's home. It's more fun to play with others and online/Live is way too competitive to be fun :/ I like the solo stuff better.

2009-08-29 [Ravenclaw]: never played gears of war.

Live is only fun when your playing with your friends. I don't much like the big random slayer games. I suck too bad to be any good at them. I'm like a freebie kill as soon as I spawn lol.

2009-08-29 [Nite_Owl]: It's great fun in multiplayer and campaign. I'd definitely recommend it :D (also, I apologize for my random typos)

2009-08-29 [SlightlySpiked]: :)

2009-08-29 [The Matter of Splatter]: I never played it, but I watched it being played. It is pretty badass... and no need to apologize for typos. As long as we all speak the same language and the general message is understood, I personally think that's fine. Semantics is a tool for the stuck up people to feel more intelligent than they actually are. Aside from correcting my spelling errors I sincerely hate it when someone asks me the time and I say "around 5:00" and someone else feels the need to say "actually, it's 4:54 p.m." hahaha it's retarded.

2009-08-29 [Ravenclaw]: I praise the gods of Firefox for my relative lack of typos. 

2009-08-30 [The Matter of Splatter]: Haha nice. I am working on some badass new photoshop painting techniques, cant wait to get my submissions done and then some.

2009-08-30 [Ravenclaw]: I just turned a Pocahontas action figure into my own personal X-Man.

2009-08-30 [The Matter of Splatter]: I saw that! Very nice :)

2009-08-30 [Ravenclaw]: Gracias, gracias very much. My shoulders still hurt from having to craft her "Contours" out of the fringe on her dress. Luckily she had a cloth skirt lol.

2009-08-30 [SlightlySpiked]: XD

2009-08-31 [Ravenclaw]: You try carving boobs out of hard toy cast plastic! lol

2009-08-31 [The Matter of Splatter]: lmao maybe I'll give it a go sometime, that's on my list of to dos... carve plastic boobs. :P

2009-08-31 [Ravenclaw]: Lmao. I'm pondering the idea of making a contest. Convert any old action figure/doll into your own character. You think people will go for it? extra points for how different they look from the original.

2009-08-31 [maryanne]: Ooh, that sounds fun.

2009-08-31 [Ravenclaw]: Really? You like the idea? That just encourages me even more lol.

2009-08-31 [maryanne]: Yeah, I'd do it. Dunno how many people really would though.

2009-08-31 [SlightlySpiked]: lmao this is an interesting conversation

2009-08-31 [Ravenclaw]: If it where properly advertised I'm sure a few people would join.

2009-08-31 [The Matter of Splatter]: Yeah go for it. I don't think I'd do it personally but I'm sure a lot of people would :)

2009-08-31 [Ravenclaw]: The Action Figure Contest

I went for it lol

2009-08-31 [maryanne]: Woo! I'll reserve a place once I've got a plan.

2009-08-31 [Ravenclaw]: SWEET!

2009-09-01 [SlightlySpiked]: lol nice!

2009-09-23 [The Matter of Splatter]: Well guys it's official. I finally have a working scanner. Just waiting for the USB cable in the mail, then I can finally get my submissions up.

2009-09-24 [Lothuriel]: Yes [Serwa], you may most certainly join.

2009-09-24 [SlightlySpiked]: lmao nice

2009-09-24 [Serwa]: Awesome! Which one do you want me to draw?

2009-09-24 [SlightlySpiked]: XD

2009-09-26 [Lothuriel]: Oh yeah.....give me a sec lol

2009-09-26 [SlightlySpiked]: ?

2009-10-13 [Serwa]: I'll have another one too, seeing some people are doing several entries :)

2009-10-13 [XxTsomexX]: ehehe ^^' Sir Waka, if you want you can take mine, or Lothuriel can do with them as she sees fit. I'm afraid the school year this year has turned out more formidable than I thought. I apologise, but I won't be able to do my two entries, Calisto and Cannonball :(

2009-10-13 [Lothuriel]:

Please note there have been changes to the rules, due to my time issues. Also, I've added The Ultimate DC Universe

2009-10-13 [Lothuriel]: It's ok [XxTsomexX], you can renter when you have more time. The Marvel Universe is vast and I am sure there will be plenty characters left.

2009-10-13 [XxTsomexX]: ok ^^ thank you lol

2009-10-13 [Serwa]: Okay, I'll join the DC universe instead of doing a 2nd marvel! :)

2009-10-14 [Lothuriel]: You could always do both ^____^

2009-10-14 [Serwa]: Will see if I got time, got several other contests goin on too,
just kinda stuck on them.
Theres a Haloween contest on elfwood, and everytime I draw something for haloween I feel its too cliche ;)
We don't have halloween over here in the Netherlands, so all I know are the cliches from movies :P

2009-10-16 [The Matter of Splatter]: Hahaha no worries man, every holiday in America has become way too commercialized anyway. What you see via media is usually what you get these days. I'm generalizing of course but it isn't that far off.

2009-10-16 [Nite_Owl]: So true, so true XD

2009-10-16 [Serwa]: Yea, same thing is happening here.
We have several themed holidays in december here in Holland.
One is Sinterklaas, the other Christmas.
And they actually start with christmas decoration Before Sinterklaas. (Santa claus is a Sinterklaas ripoff, but somehow in the Netherlands we celebrate them as two seperate occasions)

Anyways, I made some drawing for that halloween contest, the line work is on my house! Critique please!

2009-10-16 [The Matter of Splatter]: I loves me some halloween. I'll check it out man.

2009-10-17 [Yuriona]: You should draw something for the Elftown Halloween contest too dang it! <img:stuff/curses%20aka%20shake%20fist2.png>

2009-10-17 [Serwa]: There's an elftown halloween contest then? o_O
I checked a lot of contest pages, cant remember seeing one here!

2009-10-17 [The Matter of Splatter]: If there is one, I might have to give it a go as well.

2009-10-17 [Serwa]: Found it and bookmarked it, thanks for the heads up!

I might be lazy and submit the same drawing here ;) It's two different sites. Or is that not allowed? I don't see what problem there would be really ;)

2009-10-17 [Yuriona]: I don't think you can. The Halloween theme this year is 'Elftown Masquerade Ball' where you draw your ET persona or character dressed up for a fancy masquerade ball. *is working on her own entry*

2009-10-17 [Serwa]: Ahhhh,, but I've always been a chick with a pumpkin bra!
But ET persona/character? you mean that 'Orc' 'Human' 'Duck' option thing? or is there some LARPing going on which is not so life action, but digital action thus DARPing that I knew nothing about? oh well, I should really read it through before asking more questions, thanks for the info :P

2009-10-17 [Serwa]: Love that ring that you (got)made Yuriona!

2009-10-17 [Yuriona]: Really?? ur hott! u hav MSN? XD
Yeah that sort of duck/orc/elf/human thing though it can be just an Elftown type character too I suppose. The contest is kinda lacking entries so if you want to see if your pumpkin bra girl is ok to enter, check with [Alexi Ice] since she's the mod.

Thanks! ^__^ No to get used to wearing it.

2009-10-17 [Serwa]: :P

Yea I took the time to read it through, my drawing doesnt meet the requirements, the deadline is quite soon already.
Not sure if I could finish anything before that. Gonna give it a shot though.
It's a nice theme, too bad it's not advertised so well.

Also waiting for that mainstreet poll to finish, so the gryphon contest can be polled :P seems to take forever to get 300 votes >.>

2009-10-17 [Yuriona]: Yeah... ET is dead lately. And the mod is a newbie. >_>

Totally check out the Elftown Dreamers' Contest though. That deadline isn't until the end of November!

2009-10-17 [Expensive Fidelity]: I am afraid I"m in the same boat as others. I have school and work... and I just can't seem to make or find the time between the two for EXTRA art. It's depressing, but true. I'm afraid the gallery would lack a version of Quicksilver.

2009-11-07 [Nite_Owl]: Alright, I finally have the lineart/sketch done for Iron Man! Just trying to figure out how to color him now...

2009-11-07 [Serwa]: I think red and gold would be cool ;)

2009-11-07 [Ravenclaw]: I think it's the method Owl is trying to figure out, not the color scheme.

2009-11-07 [Nite_Owl]: Yeah XD Well I randomly noticed that the nail polish I was using after I finished it matched the exact color red I was thinking of :o Mayhaps he'll be colored with nail polish hahaha

2009-11-08 [SlightlySpiked]: XD

2009-11-09 [Ravenclaw]: I used nail polish on the action figure I recently reworked, turned out rather well after about 50 coats.

2009-11-09 [Serwa]: I was trying to be obvious ;) thought it was rather obvious lol

Show us what you got so far :)

2009-11-10 [SlightlySpiked]: nice!!!

2009-11-10 [Nite_Owl]: Wow, that just figures. I think someone might have thrown it away, because I can't find it anywhere now :o Fffffffuuuuuu X( I'll keep looking, but I might have to start it over again

2009-11-10 [Ravenclaw]: Check the scanner, that's where I always leave my stuff.

2009-11-10 [Nite_Owl]: I found it! :D It was hiding in one of my folders. I don't have much time this week (sooooo busy :x) but maybe by this weekend I'll have it colored and posted.

2009-11-10 [SlightlySpiked]: im so lost lol XD

2009-11-11 [arthemis_]: I've the lineart ready for my second entry :P Hihi, prepared for CHIBI Kraven! :P

2009-11-29 [SlightlySpiked]: XD

2010-10-22 [Mortified Penguin]: No Galactus? No Mephisto? NO CAPTAIN AMERICA?! people disgust me!

2010-10-22 [Lothuriel]: The characters are randomly assigned with a lucky d20

2010-11-17 [SlightlySpiked]: 0_0 i like venom XD

2010-11-20 [Lothuriel]: Quite possibly ^__^

2010-11-20 [The Matter of Splatter]: I gotta get on this at some point. Too bad I hardly log onto this site anymore.

2010-12-05 [elfprincess021]: is this still going on???

2010-12-11 [Lothuriel]: Yeppers

2010-12-17 [SlightlySpiked]: XP

2011-06-24 [Eyonic]: q.q someone already took deadpool, must find another one *looks in marvel encyclopedia*

2011-06-25 [Ravenclaw]: they're assigned.

2011-06-25 [Mortified Penguin]: Not according to the rules at the top.

2011-06-26 [Ravenclaw]: then why was mine assigned? lol

2011-06-26 [Serwa]: They first were, and then it became free pick at some point.

I finished my entry like almost 2 years ago now..?

2011-06-26 [Eyonic]: o.o oh my, didnt know it was that old

2011-06-26 [Ravenclaw]: yeah, mine's SO old... it was one of the first pics i finished when i got my tablet.

2011-06-26 [Lothuriel]: This contest is meant to create a "Data base" in Elftown of all the Marvel characters. I could divide it into sections and do one contest per character or something. I will do it how ever you guys want though.

2011-06-26 [Serwa]: Oh alright, when I started on this there was a deadline.
Maybe the purpose of the contest changed after I finished.
Anyways my entry was uploaded in september 2009 on deviantart:

2011-06-26 [Lothuriel]: THAT! Is awesome! 

There has never been a deadline that I can remember :/

2011-06-27 [SlightlySpiked]: that looks badass!
