2006-09-04 [shotokan_gal]: As lovely as the entry is [syagre], one of the (admittedly newer) rules of official competitions is now that art submitted must be new :) So we don't have lots of old entries from other competitions which happen to fit, or be stretched to fit the theme.
2006-09-04 [syagre]: And to finish with... I'd like to say that I had made this drawing for the purpose of discribing my Elftown house... well, on my Elftown house ! (I know it sounds a bit idiot, but it's very logical) so in that way I do think it's relevant with this contest... don't you think ?
2006-09-04 [shotokan_gal]: I'm just quoting the rules (part of rule 2) :) And yes, there was elftown house contest I believe, an art contests competition, so your entry is on theme because that contest had the same theme to this one. But I don't think we want this contest just to be an exact repeat in entries of there. The idea of official contests is for elftowners to produce new art and challenge themselves.
2006-09-04 [syagre]: so, practically, I should remove my entry, right ? Well, too bad, I just meant to participate, and I won't have the time for it, alas...
2006-09-04 [shotokan_gal]: Although I'm not moderating this personally, according to the rules yes.
2006-09-04 [syagre]: That's done. *shrugs*
2006-09-04 [Ocean Soul]: There's plenty of time, more than a month. The rules are the way they are in order to protect official contests (that earn you official badges and mentioning in the official donors' lists and so on) from being flooded with entries that are stolen, old, won a million contests before this one or were so crazy difficult in the making that they took 3 years to be finished.
2006-09-04 [syagre]: I know, I've nothing against the principles you mention here. It's just that I'm not that skilled at drawing and I'm relatively busy... so it took me 3 months to make the drawing I previously uploaded... (when you lack the talent, you've to resort to patience and work !)... and in these weeks I'll be very busy (finishing a PhD) so I'm afraid I won't be able to enter ! I nonetheless hope this contest to be successful.
2006-09-05 [Lakayana]: nice contest :p
2006-09-06 [kittygirl1017]: Can some one tell me if that is okay? ^^
It took me a looong time... -_-
2006-09-06 [Perplexity]: *squints* It looks really pretty, but do you have a larger size image we can look at???
2006-09-06 [LauRRa]: I love it!!! Was it watercolour, or did you make it on the PC. I dunno if ill enter..>.>

2006-09-13 [Kuehne]: man.. don't you hate it when you get giant flying squirels on you roof.. they're such a pain.
2006-09-13 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: I knew it was too real. That guy should be banned... All is art is photos
2006-09-13 [Elegy - gone]: ... >.> <.<... she is not! >.>
2006-09-13 [sequeena_rae]: It's not a bad thing :P
2006-09-13 [sequeena_rae]: When there's contest rules being broken ;)
2006-09-13 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: And we are proud of the good work :p
2006-09-13 [Elegy - gone]: Hehe, I've smudged so many pictures in my life that I can recognize one at a glance =P but I couldn't prove anything without a bit of research x)
2006-09-13 [sequeena_rae]: Oh indeed, it's pretty obvious.
2006-09-13 [Elegy - gone]: Yeah =P but if we talk much more now, my smudge busting comment will disappear off the page! :O
2006-09-13 [sequeena_rae]: Oh damneth. Shame there's no 'move to' button :P *shuts up now*
2006-09-13 [Elegy - gone]: Haha, it wasn't off the page yet, but thank you =P
2006-09-13 [Sunrose]: That makes me wonder about all the other images on his house :(
2006-09-13 [sequeena_rae]: I agree =/ They're all made using the same 'medium' makes me think they're all just smudged photo's.
2006-09-13 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: lol :p they are all done with the same programme... you caan see that the swans is a real picture...
2006-09-14 [kittygirl1017]: I'm going to redo mine. :)
2006-09-14 [Shjahjdahdvwa]: Yeah you should... Since you like the rules of elftown so much ^^
2006-09-14 [sequeena_rae]: Yes, but the picture may be his.
2006-09-16 [Lothuriel]: I love the mushroom house Daisy!

2006-09-16 [Perplexity]: SO cute, Daisy!

2006-09-29 [Artsieladie]: Thanks! I was just going to "build" a simple, little log cabin....I think I've ended up with sorta' a deluxe log cabin! lol Once I had my first log, I just kept putting them together! It wouldn't be complete as my ET House, if I didn't add a uni. ...And trees...I love trees! Decided to go with the autumn season, since it is so in the N. Hemisphere. I love all of the ideas here. I think besides the fun of creating & entering, I love to look at the creativity of others, each one exhibiting that wonderful uniqueness. Awesome, everyone! ^__^
2006-09-29 [shotokan_gal]: The entries are really different so far, I love the variety that's come up ^^
2006-09-29 [Dark Side of the Moon]: You know it's disappointing that with all of the excellent artists on this site that this page hasn't been filled yet. Only eleven entries...my goodness... :^/

2006-10-01 [moira hawthorne]: well id have to take a photo of it to get it on the computer... but that could be said to be the same as scanning your art... if its not made on the computer digditally...
2006-10-01 [Titanium Tiger]: kewl!! this should be interesting!!
2006-10-01 [spongemonkey]: Yeah, I mean, its not a photo of an actual functional house, so they should allow it! ^_^
