2008-09-23 [Jitter]: Well it either had to be extended or cancelled since there's not much point to judge only 3 entries. There was plenty of time in the first place and your entry was lovely. I'm very sad you decided to take it down and I hope you'll opt for puting it up again or make an even better entry if you wish :)
2008-09-24 [Mordigen]: there was a good ammount of time to begin with, I agree --- I just got so damn busy, i didn't even realize how busy I had gotten with real-life issues until I checked the calendar and just watched the days pile up. :(
I've got one entry finished, but I'm not quite sure it completely follows the theme.......I mean, in my opinion it does, but I'm not sure it would widely be accepted as a part of the theme or not -- plus, I don't have the best camera in the world, so I have to do a lot of clean-up and editing to the photo to get it to be properly presentable. I didn't even realize how much work THAT would take until I couldn't even squeeze in the time to do it :(
I surely hope she didn't just retract it completely because of a deadline extension, either. Maybe she's working on it, or plans to do something more with it to resubmit it.
2008-09-24 [Jitter]: If it's the Smaug plushie you mentioned above, I personally believe "The Hobbit" is one of the best fairy tales ever written ;)
2008-09-24 [Mordigen]: Well no, I didn't have the right materials to make the Smaug Plushie -- I made a jewelry piece. An Elf-Queen headress type thing....it is also from the hobbit, or at least, what I would imagine it would be like, as it itself was never directly mentioned in the Hobbit. That's where I was having some decrepencies -- does the item have to be specifically mentioned? As this was just something that I brewed up in my head that I would imagine an Elf Queen would be wearing :P
My second entry that I've been trying to work on, and keep messing up on is a Plushie of the Fireys from Labyrinth, but I'm having a bit of trouble with the lil fucker >;P
2008-09-24 [Jitter]: Hmmm, I think as long as it looks fairytaleish and elven I guess it will count :)
It'd be better if it was mentioned somewhere to be honest but I'll have to ask for sure
2008-09-24 [Mordigen]: Well I got plenty of extra time now, so if it doesn't count -- oh well, it was still fun to make, I can always make something else now if it wont qualify ;)
2008-09-24 [Jitter]: I'd say put it as a placeholder at least but also try and make something closer to the theme :D
2008-09-29 [arthemis_]: two entries hè? Maybe I make another one with the deadline extension.
2008-10-12 [Lothuriel]: I need to come up with something for this....
2008-10-12 [Jitter]: Yes you should! *forces*
2008-10-19 [Grandamelf]: Yea, we have more time!
2008-11-05 [Chrilith of Akhai]: Aw hell... I really want to make something for this, but I have so little time. =( Are... *ahem* rush-jobs allowed if you still put your best effort into them?
2008-11-06 [Jitter]: Sure x)
2008-11-06 [arthemis_]: hihi, rush jobs? December is a busy month, but sure you find some time ;)
2008-11-06 [Jitter]: I'm so sad we haven't got many nentries in this contest :(
2008-11-06 [Chrilith of Akhai]: Well, with a little luck there's going to be one more now. :3 For me, December is going to be less busy than usual, actually, but it's not quite what I'd like for a real craft.
2008-11-06 [arthemis_]: I'm making an second entry :)
2008-11-06 [Mordigen]: I'm still working on getting mine in - though, I have to admit, there is no guarantee :( Things have gotten more complicated than I expected lately, but I still have plans and every intention on entering
2009-01-03 [arthemis_]: aaahh too bad, I couldn't manage to finish my second entry in time :)
2009-03-15 [arthemis_]: Who won, who won?
2009-03-25 [Artsieladie]: Thank you for saying something here. It reminded me that I needed to place the winners on the page. :)
