Username (or number or email):


2005-03-28 [selardorart]: yes...she's not an olympian goddess, which is what aphrodite and artemis and hera, etc. all are, she was of the first strain of the immortals....the olympians are the third strain :)

2005-03-28 [Anvikit]: Oh, I simply must brush up on my greek mythology and enter this contest! =^_^=

2005-03-28 [Deadly_DNA_Girl]: hmm, might try gaia.... can't promise anything though, I get bored easily :p

2005-03-31 [selardorart]: oh so do i....i start crap, don't finish it, start more crap...somehow i always go back to finish stuff though

2005-03-31 [HydroTemplar]: hey, don't we ought to get one of those artistic nudity banners here?

2005-04-01 [selardorart]: i have no idea....maybe? other art contest pages that allow nudity don't have them, but i'm not sure.....

2005-04-02 [Anvikit]: I think those are more put up by the contest runners.. Or if its a contest based on nudity alone.. Or if its being displayed in a members house... *shrug* I donno hehe

2005-05-04 [Lothuriel]: I kept waiting for someone else to enter so that I would not have to put my daughter underneath a naked lady...LOL...just kidding. I am suprised that more people haven't entered this contest.

2005-05-04 [ally]: You portraited your daugther as Artemis?

2005-05-04 [Lothuriel]: yes, in my studies of Greek Mythology she has always represented a child-like character (except when portrayed as the hunter)...What better way to represent innocence?

2005-05-04 [ally]: You've sure studied different things than I did. According to most myths she was vengeful and sometimes cruel.

2005-05-04 [Lothuriel]: ????o.O only when protecting the innocent

2005-05-04 [ally]: Oh no. She killed the daughters of queen Niobe because she dhad dared to brag about her 50 children, while Leto only had two. Then there's the story of Actaeon: she let him be devoured by his own hunting-dogs for seeing her naked. And because king Agammemnon once insulted her he had to sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia to her (the latter got saved, but still). Want me to go on?

2005-05-04 [Lothuriel]: There are severl versions of the tales...Some see her as a vengeful goddess with a chip on her shoulder, others see her as a advocate for protecting innocence and the virginity of young women...

2005-05-04 [ally]: as I said, no?

2005-05-04 [Lothuriel]: If it bothers you that bad I will gladly remove my entry.

2005-05-04 [ally]: Yeah it bothers me :p. No please don't remove it, I was just being annoying. I like Greek mythology and have my own ideas about it, but I respect other's opinions.

2005-05-04 [Lothuriel]: I just don't see her as a "bad person" I see as strong, painfully virtuous, etc....yeah she was a little excentric but she has always been my favorite. She is who I base most of my rpg characters on...LOL...I guess I strange that is all.

2005-05-04 [ally]: Oh but I don't see her as a bad person. I worship her :p

2005-05-04 [Lothuriel]: There we go, she is now Pandia, demi-goddess of the moon and sun...I changed it. I thought ya know, [ally] has a point. THis is a picture of a little started to make me feel weird so now my daughter is no longer Artemis..I will just draw her instead. We can have 2 entries right?
