2011-03-18 [Kuramasgirl]: xD When I'm home I know that feeling too.
2011-03-18 [Akayume]: XP I just want my cameraaaaaaaa.
2011-03-18 [Kuramasgirl]: Is it very expensive to get another cord? :S
2011-03-18 [Akayume]: I'm not sure. But... I also lost the charger. DX I am so screeeewed.
2011-03-18 [Kuramasgirl]: Oh my goodness. xD I think you'd better do a full search of your house.
2011-03-18 [Akayume]: I think I shall.
2011-03-18 [Kuramasgirl]: Good luck with that! *salutes*
2011-03-18 [Kuramasgirl]: Whoo! Cool entry, Zab. :D
2011-03-18 [Zab]: :D
2011-03-18 [Akayume]: I concur!
2011-03-21 [pegasus1000]: starts to watch.. and think of what to draw
2011-03-22 [Kuramasgirl]: Yay! :3
2011-03-29 [Kuramasgirl]: Hello all!
Just as a general sort of question, does anyone think they'll be needing extra time to enter? The deadline is on the 2nd, which is this Saturday. I am perfectly okay with extending this, since I haven't had the chance to make the badges yet anyway. Just let me know if there's an interest, and I'll make the change. :)
2011-03-29 [moira hawthorne]: it would be nice if there were a few more entries
2011-03-29 [Akayume]: I would, but my camera is kaput. :( I'll look a little harder for my camera cord.
2011-03-30 [Kuramasgirl]: I agree, a few more entries would be really wonderful. :\ 3 isn't much of a contest.
2011-03-31 [pegasus1000]: I hope my scanner picked up enough of the actual lavender in the pics.
2011-03-31 [Kuramasgirl]: They look great! :) Thanks for entering.
2011-04-02 [SilverFire]: Me! :O I've only just discovered you started a new one, on the day of the deadline >_<
2011-04-02 [Akayume]: XD Oh no!
would like some extra time too. I might try to draw or something since I can't use my camera.
2011-04-02 [Triola]: Thanks :D
2011-04-03 [Kuramasgirl]: Good news! The badge is actually being made now. xD Sorry for the wait. I will (hopefully) have it finished by tomorrow, fingers crossed. Curse me and my ambitious ideas...
2011-04-03 [moira hawthorne]: oooh goood got 6 now... hopefully by the 17th that number doubles!
2011-04-03 [Nioniel]: Lots of great entries! :)
2011-04-05 [Kuramasgirl]: Badges are done. :)
Would've tweaked a few more things, but I have a project due for my digital art class Thursday, and I simply don't have time. x__x;
2011-04-06 [Triola]: :D *revives*
2011-04-06 [Akayume]: Huzzah!
2011-04-06 [Zab]: Neat badges :)
2011-04-06 [Kuramasgirl]: Thank you! :)
2011-04-17 [Kuramasgirl]: Today's the deadline, guys! Get your entries in now if you haven't already, because I'll be closing it tonight/tomorr
2011-04-17 [Akayume]: DX
2011-05-08 [SilverFire]: Are you going to run anudder wun? :3
2011-05-08 [Zab]: Yaaaay! :D Thanks everyone who votedfor me!
2011-05-08 [Kuramasgirl]: I am, yes. :D Haven't decided on a color yet, but there will definitely be another one coming soon.
2011-05-08 [Akayume]: Have you done turquoise? :O
2011-05-08 [Kuramasgirl]: No we haven't! And I think I was debating on that one. xD That could definitely be the next color, though. I love Turquoise.
2011-05-08 [Akayume]: Meeeee toooooo! :P
2011-05-09 [Bipolar Nonsense]: XD my favorite ones won :)
2011-05-10 [Kuramasgirl]: Hurray! :D
2011-05-10 [Bipolar Nonsense]: ^_^
2011-05-11 [Kaimee]: Congrats :D
2011-05-13 [Anvikit]: Yeah! Congrats! Those kitties are too adorable! and I love the fur on the woofie.
2011-05-13 [pegasus1000]: We all love the fur on the wolf. <3
2011-05-20 [Kuramasgirl]: New color and new contest! :D
2011-05-20 [pegasus1000]: dances
2011-05-20 [Nioniel]: Awesome! :D
2011-05-20 [Zab]: yay :)
2011-05-20 [Akayume]: YAYYYYYYYYYYYY
2011-05-20 [Akayume]: *dies happy*
2011-05-20 [Kuramasgirl]: XD Don't die yet! You have to enter!
2011-05-23 [Morningstar Rising]: Sweet, nice color choice.
2011-05-26 [pegasus1000]: thanks.
2011-06-04 [Bipolar Nonsense]: turquoise, huh? :) I'm gonna have to try for this one
2011-06-04 [Kuramasgirl]: Please do. xD One entry is not enough.
2011-06-06 [pegasus1000]: What happened to all the enthusiasm for this color??? I thought for sure the page would be filled by now...
2011-06-06 [Chimes]: Do you have a page filled with all of the old colours and entries? :) I'd love to see it if you do. :)
2011-06-06 [Nioniel]: I'm going to try to submit to this one. :)
2011-06-06 [Akayume]: Well, my camera is brokeeennn. :P I will try!
(My boyfriend might be nice and mail me his, so we shall see...)
2011-06-06 [Triola]: Thanks :)
2011-06-07 [Kuramasgirl]: Triola, that is awesome! :D
And go Akay, go! xD I will continue to hope.
Chimes: I don't have a page with that, actually. Not sure if that would even be possible, considering how much there is. How would you suggest I set this up, though? I think it's a great idea, if it is possible. :)
2011-06-07 [Chimes]: Perhaps have an archive page, then link to a page for each colour which displays all of the entries and the winners? (found from going back in the versions of the wiki, so it might be a bit time consuming. :P)
2011-06-08 [pegasus1000]: you would have to go all the way back to the first version of the page and go from there, perhaps skipping ahead 10-50-100 versions at a time until the end of each color. (sorry for just saying what you just said [Chimes], I just noticed... I actually did that a few weeks ago just to see what the previous colors were. I was bummed to see ROYGB(I)V had been done.
2011-06-08 [pegasus1000]: Anyway, if you want some help with that I could lend a hand.
2011-06-08 [Kuramasgirl]: I thought that might be what I'd need to do. I do have all the colors we've done previously listed up there, so I at least know that much, hah. I would definitely like some help with that. :) Let me just set up an archive page first and get one of them started so we have a bit of an idea of how this should be done, and then I'll definitely bring you in on it. Thanks for the offer!
2011-06-08 [pegasus1000]: no problem.
2011-06-08 [Akayume]: I am hoping to get the camera in a few weeks? O.o
2011-06-08 [Kuramasgirl]: xD Okay.
2011-06-22 [SlightlySpiked]: im a ninja!!!!!!! *pokes in a ninja type sneaky way*
2011-06-22 [Akayume]: I should get the camera tomorrow! :D
2011-06-23 [Kuramasgirl]: YES! Whoo! :D
And hey, I should probably do those badges...Hm.
2011-06-23 [Kuramasgirl]: Also, deadline might be extended. We'll see how many more entries come in. Hopefully quite a few more!
2011-06-24 [Akayume]: PLZ. D: I thought I would get my camera today, but there's been a hitch in the getalong... Promise to have something soon. <3
2011-06-24 [Viking]: Someday I'm actually going to enter one o' these contests...
2011-06-24 [Akayume]: Like... Naow?
2011-06-24 [Viking]: No, not now. But maybe this round if I have time.
2011-06-24 [Akayume]: :D
2011-06-24 [Kuramasgirl]: xD Please do enter! I would love to have you join in!
Okay Akay, I'll extend the deadline for you and the various other people who can't get an entry in for one reason or another. xD Oh, and for me because making badges is taking longer than anticipated.
2011-06-27 [SlightlySpiked]: maybe ill actually be able to enter something now too now tht im around a scanner lmao
2011-06-27 [Kuramasgirl]: That'd be great! :D
2011-07-01 [SlightlySpiked]: XD lmao yea for once
2011-07-04 [Kuramasgirl]: Badges are finally up. :D
2011-07-04 [pegasus1000]: I love the badges.
2011-07-04 [moira hawthorne]: the badges are better than the art!!!
2011-07-05 [Kuramasgirl]: xD Oh my goodness. No, no, definitely not. I love the entries (though I wish there were more)! Thank you so much, though. :3
2011-07-05 [Zab]: Way neat badges :)
2011-07-07 [SlightlySpiked]: i like em XD
2011-07-08 [Cillamoon]: Awwwwwww!!!! Don't cut it mr bunny!!!
2011-07-08 [Kuramasgirl]: Very nice, guys!
2011-07-08 [Anvikit]: Turquoise and red go so well together..
2011-07-10 [Triola]: Agreed!
2011-07-20 [pegasus1000]: [Bipolar Nonsense] you know the color was Turquoise right? You made an awesome dragon (many complements inserted here)but black and silver... I will leave it to Kura to decide if it fits the color.
2011-07-20 [SlightlySpiked]: o.o it looks neat
2011-07-20 [Bipolar Nonsense]: ^^" sorry. It's not black and silver. It's a variation of turquoise with a cream white. Thanks though :)
2011-07-21 [Kuramasgirl]: Hi [Bipolar Nonsense],
So, I've looked at your picture very carefully and though I can tell that it is not black and silver, I can't seem to see how this is a variation of turquoise. There is definitely blue there, but I don't believe it's quite the right shade of blue to be considered turquoise. :( I'm very sorry for this, because it is a truly beautiful piece. You've done an excellent job, and I only wish it were the right color for this contest.
I hope you won't take offense, but I would greatly appreciate if you would remove it from this particular round of the contest. You are, of course, completely welcome to resubmit another piece or to even tweak this one to fit with turquoise. I understand a lot of work must've gone into this, and I certainly don't want that to go to waste. If you need further reference concerning what color we're looking for, this link should help: http://en.wiki
Again, I'm terribly sorry I can't accept this into this edition of my contest!
2011-07-21 [Bipolar Nonsense]: *shrugs* lol It's ok :) I tried ^_^
I'll try making something different then before the contest is over. :)
2011-07-21 [Kuramasgirl]: Thank you so much. <3 I really, really appreciate that. And I do so look forward to your new piece if you can get it in time!
2011-07-22 [Bipolar Nonsense]: lol You're welcome :)
Well, ^^" looks like I wasn't able to because I had work today and I don't think I can get it done within 22 minutes (note: 11:38pm here) lol ^_^
But I'll be looking forward to see who the winners are :3
Plus, I can always try for next time. There are like... a million colors out there. XD
2011-07-22 [Kuramasgirl]: It's true! Thank you so much for making the effort this time, and I really do look forward to what you can come up with for the next one! xD
2011-07-22 [Bipolar Nonsense]: XD lol you're welcome.
:3 I'll see what I can do ^_^
2011-07-28 [SlightlySpiked]: i think im gonna wait for the next color to upload an entry, beautiful art on here but turquoise just isnt my color lmao you guys have some good stuff though!!! XD
2011-07-29 [Kuramasgirl]: Well, this edition is closed anyway. xD But I look forward to your entry the next time round.
2011-08-01 [Bipolar Nonsense]: Voted :)
2011-08-02 [Kuramasgirl]: Good! :)
2011-08-03 [Bipolar Nonsense]: :3
2011-08-07 [Kuramasgirl]: Agreed! :3 Congrats to everyone! These entries were truly lovely.
2011-08-08 [Karithina]: Congratulation
2011-08-08 [SlightlySpiked]: you guys did an amazing job congradulation
2011-08-09 [Nioniel]: :)
2011-08-10 [SlightlySpiked]: any ideas on the next contest? XD lol
2011-08-10 [Zab]: I'd like metal or something shiny.. sure .. that's not really a color.. but.. it's like a color in that it's the way something looks depending on how the material recieves light..err.. O_o Shiny should be a color. >_> Or.. reflective.. ''mirror''.. And it would be a challenge, for sure..
2011-08-10 [Nioniel]: Silver, maybe?
2011-08-11 [Zab]: yes.. or mayve crome? Isn't that a color? :/
2011-08-11 [Kuramasgirl]: Chrome, you mean?
We've had gold before, so I see no problem for silver or even bronze. :) I'm not particularly fond of chrome, but that's just me. xD
2011-08-11 [XxTsomexX]: I so wanna join the next one, this looks fun :)
2011-08-11 [Zab]: chrome then.. don't diss my swenglish! xD (it's crom/krom in swedish so crome is the perfect swenglish)
Ah, but it's shiny! And I have it on my car.. and..
2011-08-11 [Viking]: By Crom, that's a lot of chrome!
2011-08-11 [Zab]: My horses real name is Mr Crom.. >_>
2011-08-11 [Kuramasgirl]: xD We don't call him that. Unless you're going to refer to that god thing I saw in Viking's link...That was pretty awesome.
And I still don't like chrome! xD
2011-08-11 [Zab]: But Chrome is shiny.. I want shiny xD
2011-08-11 [Kuramasgirl]: Silver is prettier! And shiny!
2011-08-11 [Zab]: but... if I make shiny silver it will look like chrome and be disqualified :(
2011-08-11 [Kuramasgirl]: Zab. I can pretty much promise you that I will not disqualify an artwork if it looks like chrome instead of silver. oO There's not nearly enough difference there for something like that to happen.
2011-08-11 [Zab]: But you should :P
2011-08-12 [Triola]: But disqualifying something because of shinyness-leve
2011-08-12 [Zab]: But if you paintyed a red car in a light that made it blue? :P
2011-08-12 [Triola]: xD That would change the actual colour :P All I'm saying is that whether a colour is dull or shiny, it's still the same colour :P
2011-08-12 [moira hawthorne]: ahhhhh i think the confusion is occurring here between the different in a name of a colour and the name of a metal...
2011-08-12 [pegasus1000]: Personally I don't like the silver idea because I am so terrible at making my colors shiny so it would just look gray.
2011-08-14 [Kuramasgirl]: Since some people are having some problems with silver, perhaps we'd be better off to find another color. I will say, though, that I'm a little irritated at how nitpicky some people are being here concerning the difference between similar metallic colors(...). It's amusing to a point, and then it simply becomes annoying.
If that insults someone, sorry, but I really just want to run my contest. :|
2011-08-14 [Bipolar Nonsense]: hm.... what's wrong with silver? :( The creativity involved in developing metallic versions of living things and fantasy beings is difficult? Come on people! :) Though, I guess another color wouldn't be an issue either. :) silver would have been an awesome challenge, but I'll settle for another color, too :3
2011-08-14 [Nioniel]: Any colour you choose will be fun to work with, I'm sure. :)
2011-08-14 [Kuramasgirl]: Thank you. <3 I'm still open for suggestions, unless silver really would be okay, by the way.
2011-08-14 [Bipolar Nonsense]: No prob ^_^ I still think silver would be awesome, especially if we could use minor colors with it :3
2011-08-14 [Nioniel]: ^^ Since gold and pearl have already been used, I don't really see what the problem with silver would be (mind you, I don't really care if it's silver or another colour). Was there a good turnout for entries when those colours were the theme? I'd think that silver would be no more difficult to work with than gold or pearl.
2011-08-14 [Mortified Penguin]: Have you considered the ultraviolet spectrum? There's some neat colors there, I reckon.
2011-08-14 [Kuramasgirl]: Both pearl and gold actually had decent turnouts. Even better than the turquoise we just had, I'd say. :3 So perhaps silver will work out after all.
2011-08-14 [Mortified Penguin]: Do you have a page where people can view past entries and/or winners?
2011-08-14 [Mortified Penguin]: Nevermind, I found the archive... I don't know why there isn't a link to it anywhere here...
2011-08-14 [Zab]: Silver is as good as any.
You shouldn't take me too seriously Kura, I thought you knew that :P
I just get insecure when I'm uncertain about the differense. It's the same with these fancy named ''cerise'' or "Turquoise", really. I'm like ''what's the differense between that and old, regular blue?'' ;) That's why my entries normally show up once there's a few others up already, so I can sneakpeak on what's ok :P
It's your contest, chose the colour you want. I'll make it shiny anyway.. mwahahaa or, if you chose silver, I'll draw a 'silver'' horsey :D black with white mane and tail x) ) Just kidding.
As far as I can tell without looking back in the comments, most of the ''problem'' with silver is mine.. and that's nothing to take seriously ;)
Then we have Pegasus who could take this as a practice to get better at shiny-ness :D
And that's pretty much the only ones who hasn't liked silver as far as I can see. I don't count (I just wanted to make and see really shiny pictures, I don't mind silver) so we're down to one person against and a bunch of person pro.. :P
Feeling better? :3 Didn't mean to annoy you.
2011-08-14 [XxTsomexX]: I want to see the past entries as well, could someone possibly link it?
2011-08-14 [XxTsomexX]: Thank you :)
2011-08-14 [Kuramasgirl]: I haven't linked to the archives yet because they're not finished. :) But you're welcome to take a look while it's still a WIP, of course.
And thanks for the...pseudo-a
2011-08-14 [Zab]: Whee :P
2011-08-15 [Bipolar Nonsense]: Yay!! :D
2011-10-14 [Nioniel]: *poke* Can we do another round soon? :)
2011-10-14 [Kuramasgirl]: xD Yes, of course. I'm terribly sorry for the delay. College is...Rather difficult this year.
2011-10-14 [Nioniel]: Completely understandable
2011-10-15 [Kuramasgirl]: All right! Next round is ready to go! :D
2011-10-15 [Nioniel]: Aw, sweet! :D
2011-10-15 [Zab]: Figured I'd enter a photo since my tablet broke and photoshop keeps dying every 30 seconds.. >_> Hope it's silver enough :)
2011-10-15 [Nioniel]: Zab, that's so awesome! :)
2011-10-15 [Zab]: Thanks :)
2011-10-16 [Kuramasgirl]: Awesome! That's a great entry, Zab! :D
And yay, Viking! xD Glad to hear you can enter here too.
2011-10-16 [Viking]: It's Vikingthulhu in a silver chalice..It would be wrong to do the same pic, so I'll have to mix things up.
2011-10-16 [Zab]: Yay! It's approved xD
2011-10-16 [Nioniel]: I hope that fits! :D
2011-10-16 [Zab]: Looks great, at least :P
2011-10-16 [Nioniel]: Thank you! ^^
2011-10-17 [Kuramasgirl]: Nice one, Nioniel. :D
2011-10-17 [Nioniel]: Thanks!
2011-10-17 [pegasus1000]: I like the pic Nioniel, How did you make it? It is really nice to look at and fits so nicely with the theme.
I was also wondering if any of this is your actual work? I followed the stock list you gave.
2011-10-17 [Nioniel]: I used Gimp and stock from DA. :)
2011-11-12 [Kuramasgirl]: I feel like there's not much interest here. >>;
2011-11-12 [Zab]: aww... .__. Whyis it always like this when I'm first in? xD
2011-11-12 [Kuramasgirl]: xD I have no idea.
2011-11-13 [pegasus1000]: I've been having trouble with the color. Silver is hard to draw and not be gray.
2011-11-13 [Kuramasgirl]: Well, the basic difference is that silver has highlights, because of its metallic qualities. If you're unsure of whether what you've done is acceptable, feel free to ask me first. :)
2011-11-13 [Zab]: And silver will reflect some colour from the surroundings :) Like.. a small line/spot next to the whitest highihts.. and making some bits saturated can help too.. maybe I'm just confusing it now? >_>
2011-11-13 [Triola]: Beginner tips for silver:
1. Take a photo of something silver, easy and quick :P
2. If you're using photoshop, use the dodge tool. That will give you more "shiny" highlights than making them yourself, unless you know what you're doing.
3. If you're painting or drawing, use actual silver paint or a silver pen
2011-11-13 [pegasus1000]: Thanks for the tips. Perhaps I'll do something...
2011-11-13 [Triola]: Go for it!
2011-11-18 [Nioniel]: ^^ I hope we get more entries!
2011-11-18 [Kuramasgirl]: Same here!
2012-02-19 [pegasus1000]: Well, it took me long enough.
2012-04-11 [SlightlySpiked]: Hey guys sry i havny gotten on n a whole barely found out i can log on on my new phone lmao
2012-08-22 [Nioniel]: Deleted spam.
2012-08-24 [wicked fae mage]: *remembers to be here* I really want to do a nice drawing for this contest :3
2013-03-20 [Alexi Ice]: Watches** ^^
2013-04-04 [Mortified Penguin]: I want another rainbow contest! For Lady Rainicorn.
2013-04-04 [XxTsomexX]: I would love to enter from the beginning
2013-04-09 [Anvikit]: Kura hasn't logged in in over 200 days :( *sad panda*
2013-04-09 [pegasus1000]: Sense I have been helping out Kura for a while I was thinking of stealing the page but I guess I will start up my own contest. It will essentially be the same as this one, I still need to create the page so, More details to follow.
2013-07-29 [Kuramasgirl]: Well I've reappeared after I don't even know how long, but I don't really have the time or interest to start this up again (at least not in the near future). So I have no problem with you stealing the idea, Peggy. :) Good luck.
