I'm so glad I've gotten so many entries and you've all done a wonderful of now we're taking no more pics and the voting process has ended!

I've actually changed the prizes....I figure I'll award the first prize winner a drawing 8 x 10 by yours truly and the second prize winner a 6 x 9 drawing and all participants will receive a nifty badge :)

Username (or number or email):


2005-06-18 [nokturA]: [selardorart]: thank you very much, I appreciate. :)

2005-07-18 [Iron-Man-429]: got the finished pic up finally

2005-10-23 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Oh how harsh! You'd think that something as popular as Greek mythology would have many more participants than this! Should be on the main page I think...

2005-10-23 [iippo]: I have an entry ready, just need to get it in.

2005-11-04 [Malve]: Can you do a photo manipulation? and enter with it?

2005-11-05 [lraina]: would a muse count?

2005-11-25 [Kelsie]: When does the contest end?

2005-12-01 [Magdalena Snow]: this might be kind of late, seeing as how it was almost half a year since the question, but i thought that selene was goddess of the moon

2005-12-02 [Blaithin]: As far as I know, Selene is the Greek goddess of the moon....Artemis also holds a bit of a hold on it but not as much. Diana is the Roman equivilant to Artemis.

2005-12-03 [Pnelma Tirian]: I thought Circe was just a sorceress, or like a daughter of a god or something,.

2005-12-04 [Bunny of The Moon~]: ever read the odyssey?

2005-12-04 [iippo]: Well, pnelma is right, Circe is a witch rather than a divinity. But I suppose it'll pass in this contest if you read it more broadly like "women in greek mythology" or something of the like since sirens aren't gods either, they're monsters.

2005-12-05 [Lerune]: I was inspired by the contest -- so thank you, [selardorart] for the inspiration. Hope you all like it. =o)

2005-12-05 [Nita]: Yay, a Persephone! My alter ego goddess :) *hugs [Lerune]*

2005-12-05 [Lerune]: *hugs back* I am glad you like it.  ^_^

2005-12-06 [Evercursed]: The picture of Persephone is just so pretty!

2005-12-06 [Lerune]: Thank you very, very much. I am honored that you like it. ^^ I think it is one of my better pieces so far. =o)

2005-12-07 [Lerune]: Just so everyone knows, I did use a photo for reference on the second piece. If you want to see the original, you can find the link in my house. =o)

2005-12-08 [Pnelma Tirian]: yeah I have read the odyssey, but not recently. Hey--is it okay if i submit my own rendition of a siren?

2005-12-08 [Jitter]: I had a reference too... It's an ancient picture though LOL

2005-12-11 [Galatea]: Hmm, I really want to enter, but I don't know if I should with such awesome competition...
