2008-02-05 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: that would be fun, but we come back to the issue, of what exactly Nessie is, or leviathan?
2008-02-05 [Yuriona]: In outer space? :O Nope can't say I've been there. Haven't been to Scotland either for that matter. ;)
Seriously though, for ages no one believed in giant squid until a carcass was found and no one believed in gorillas until Jane Goodall discovered them. They had existed a long time in those habitats before humans realized they existed. Just because we haven't found solid proof yet, doesn't mean the creature can't exist. Besides, there's just too much subjective evidence from said human habitation (dating back to the 6th century in Nessie's case) to say its just a hoax or that there isn't anything to the legend other than imagination.
2008-02-05 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: Oo Wow... talk about deviation in conversation.
2008-02-06 [Paul Doyle]: Hmm, now I realize this totally off-the-wall, but didn't the Space Kidettes (you know, that really old cartoon) fight a space dragon? Or was that the Herculoids? I might be getting my 1960s cartoons mixed up again . . .
2008-02-06 [Cia_mar]: not sure.. sounds familiar though....
just wondering.. how long before things go to mainstreet voting??? any word on that???
2008-02-06 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: I keep wondering that myself. I'm anxious for voting to begin.
2008-02-06 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: instant gratification takes too long! ;)
2008-02-06 [moira hawthorne]: *puts out plates of cookiees and muffins and mugs of hotchocolate to soooth the savage beasts... artists*
2008-02-06 [moira hawthorne]: I use to carry licorice and cinnamon sticks in my pockets... better than candy
2008-02-06 [Demon Epona]: ^^ Okay. If there's going to be another contest, then you guys can take it out. It's finished, just not scanned and cropped properly, so in a sense, I guess it's not totaly done. ^^ Thanks again guys! I'll make a better one for next contest.
2008-02-18 [The Monochrome Rainbow]: The poll is up, but I notice many entries did not go to poll, even if they were not marked as non-poll entries...?
2008-02-18 [Cia_mar]: the notes of "non poll" was just to let the artist know that they would not be CONSIDERED for the MS poll... the rest all get to be considered, and then selected by private voting (i am assuming) by council as to which ones make it to the coveted MS vote...lol
they only have room for 10 or 15 i think... so once they have chosen what they consider the best to fit that number, the rest just dont make it any further... though with this contest, there is the hope that our images will still get to be used somewhere in the wikis dedicated to dragons...(am i correct in that assumption [Artsieladie]???
2008-02-18 [Katja]: Considering that this is intended to portray dragons as they are I believe that some applicants "chosen" by said party should be re-considered considering that a wyvern made it to the final vote when a blend of dragons did not. Though considering I drew, with pencil and pen, the piece to comfort companions earlier drug down in the forum for their opinions, I do not consider it waste, but, working as hard as I did I think that if applicable, each piece should be given a chance.
2008-02-18 [moira hawthorne]: I think yours Katja was very cool... a very good dragon!
2008-02-18 [SilverFire]: Cia, you're right. Katja, if you had a concern about one of the entries, you should have mentioned it before the contest was closed and the poll was made. And each piece is given a chance.
2008-02-18 [Paul Doyle]: I'd just like to say that I hope these various ECM contests gather enough attention, enough momentum, to perhaps have a bigger and bolder contest of the same sort. "Bigger and bolder" is assuming this catches the attention of people outside ET. I would personally spend more far more time and energy for such a contest than I did in this one. This time around it provided me with an opportunity to creatively vent a lot of residual real-life frustrations, along with a convenient way to make my son (and whomever else!) a coloring page for a rainy day. For that alone, I am happy and happier to be surrounded by wonderful entries from cool people :)
2008-03-09 [Cia_mar]: congrats to the winners!
2008-03-09 [nehirwen]: Congrats indeed. :)
2009-07-11 [Kuruni]: ah damn! i missed this one!
