Pastkeepers art contest gallery


21 August 2008

the end date is 21/08. after that date the submissions will be closed and you will have another 10 days to finish the drawing.

The 1st will take the classification badge, a pic drawn by me and infinite Glory.
the 2nd and 3rd will take the badge and Infinite glory too.



The long Intro...

Pastkeeper is a story centered on the importance of culture and language, I was thinking about the discover of the rosetta stone and what we learned about the past from the decoding of ancient languages and what more we leave for the future since it was used to leave a sign. So while I was brainwashed by my litterature study I gave birth to this story. After a nuclear disaster (such as the one which distoyed the world in Hokuto no ken XXXDDD) people lived strangely as a primitives in a colony in the middle of the nuclear desert. Why they weren’t try to turn back to normality? Why they didn’t build houses? Why they didn’t move to a better place? Because they forgot. But somebody remembers how was before, they’re called Pastkeepers and they’re whorshipped as precious treasures by the people. You may ask: “but if they know, why they don’t lead the people to a betterlife?” because they live under a blind dictatorship, and they’re not allowed to talk and express their ideas and to tell the people what they know…. Ok I wan’t bother you more because the story is a little Philosophycal but I hope this long description would help you with the competition….

-Draw as your spirit leads you. Play with my characters, you can draw one or two or the whole trio together. I like to see what comes from you.

-No more that 2 entries per member (In accord to the general tradition).

-I have no prob with pornography but I know that a lots of people doesn’t like it, so, not to hurt them, you can draw nudity but don’t fall in vulgarity please!

-I think you would not do it,because I know you’re genuine artist but I write it down to be clear… Do not steal art or copy, the entries has to be yours or done in couple with a declared artist ( I mean you can submit a drawing done with a friend and you can say "I've done the line and my friend brenda coloured it", no prob)

Maybe you can tell me via comment if you want to participate, so, I can understand if I have to run this contest for long! ; D

2006-07-26 [stuffAEAmade]: Draw Gin in a chainmail bikini and I'll make you another one. :P

2006-07-26 [5thwitch]: uhm... 5th *taking a Nimedex* goes working on it

2006-11-16 [General]: Ouu I wanna draw/enter the contest 'cause I'm lame like that, and I have nothing else to do! =D

2006-11-16 [5thwitch]: That's a good idea! don't be lazy like me and do your best! ;)

2006-11-16 [General]: Wheee!! So when I'm finished with the picture. Should I edit the page and so on? Or give it to you? Lol.

2006-11-16 [5thwitch]: you can edit it freely.if you're not sure on the edit-process you can give it to me and i will submit it for you. anyway it's a good chance to learn it!

2006-11-16 [General]: Schweet. =3

2006-11-23 [Galatea]: Hmm, its a pity no one else entered, this seemed like a really interesting contest!

2006-11-23 [5thwitch]: Thanks! I know why... because there is no deadline... If you have a deadline pressing you, you will be in hurry to do the job, if you don't have it, you can always think "well I love it, but there is still time..." I know it because i do it... in fact I have my entry nearly finished for another contest with no deadline and I didn't submitted it yet...

2006-11-23 [5thwitch]: I will probably put a entry-number deadline...
And you are invited to join!

2006-11-23 [Galatea]: Hehe, yeah I know what you mean....those number entrys can be annoying too because you are always waiting for late last entry. ^_^ I would be glad to fact I may start now. Can we do two entries or just one?

2006-11-23 [5thwitch]: Uhmm.. I wrote 2 entries per member... but just because i was following the tradition...

2006-11-23 [5thwitch]: if you like to add more I will change the rule... I don't think somebody would mind...

2006-11-23 [Galatea]: Nah, I just didn't read the instructions carefully. >.< After all those years in highschool with them harping at us to do just that.

2007-01-05 [Galatea]: Alrighty I have a placeholder for least until I get a better version drawn.

2007-01-07 [5thwitch]: I'm moved to cry...

2007-01-07 [Galatea]: Did I screw her up that bad? <img:stuff/sa-gif.gif>

2007-01-07 [5thwitch]: no I love It! but I have this strange Stendhal sydrome that makes me cry in front of art.. imagine how I can feel if it's something mine drawn by some other artist... that's bliss. and I have two of these pieces of art... I'm waiting for some more..

2007-01-07 [Galatea]: Well as soon as I feel better I will get to work on my real contest piece. ^_^ I'm glad you like it, and I do know exactly how you feel. I love it when I get to see another artist's interpretation of my characters. ^_^

2007-01-07 [5thwitch]: The thing I love most are the sandals... it's a good idea, they're simple and ideal for the desert. it's curious because in one of my first scketches of Aenima I drew her with sandals too.

2007-01-07 [Galatea]: Awesome, they just made sense, at first I was going to do her barefoot but I knew she needed some kind of footware and sandels just made sense. 

2007-09-10 [Mystereality]: wow, i stumbled upon this page, sorta. only two entries? i will try to take part, if i get time, but if you want more people to get involved, i can help you advertise the contest.

2007-09-13 [5thwitch]: Well, thank you! this contest need some skilled partecipants! I'm waiting for your entry!

2007-09-21 [stuffAEAmade]: Oh, oh, I did not notice the Chainmail Bikini Gin! xD

2007-09-21 [5thwitch]: ...and here is another one coming... I did those drawings and I totally forgot to finish them! but it's quite funny drawing gin half-naked... I'm thinking of a chain mail bikini gin contest... XD

2007-09-25 [5thwitch]: ehm..<img50*0:stuff/cmbg3.jpg>

2008-03-03 [Eyonic]: hmmm, I think I may try this......

2008-03-04 [5thwitch]: Go,sweetheart! i'm here waiting for your artwork!

2008-03-04 [Eyonic]: okiday

2008-07-31 [Heliosept]: I think I'll give this a shot. I have other artwork to complete for class, but I think I can make a submission in my free time. =)

2008-08-01 [ririmu_chan]: this reminds me of the book 'The Giver' by Lois Lowry.

2008-08-01 [5thwitch]: for certain aspects sounds like 1984 by orwell.aboveall for the "language thing" but i've never read "the giver" maybe I should take a look...

2008-08-02 [Future Dictator]: well, since i got such a nice invitation, i'll join :)

2008-08-02 [Galatea]: Wow, she is beautiful! Great work [Future Dictator]! :D

2008-08-04 [5thwitch]: I'll send you a message to explain it ;)

2008-08-05 [ririmu_chan]: still havent got the e-mail.

2008-08-05 [Future Dictator]: look over there ----> right below where it says "edit page" in the side menu, it says "upload image"

2008-08-05 [ririmu_chan]: nope, no upload image. However i did some research and i have to ask for a priv 99. I just did that and with my fingers crossed they will get back to me so i can put the work up.

2008-08-05 [ririmu_chan]: there we go! got it up. sorry its a bit small. i had to shrink it and i am still learning how to do that so... Ill try to fix that. anyway, i have a really bad scanner so i lost some of the lines and shading but most of the major stuff is there. fixed. now you can see it.

2008-08-06 [5thwitch]: sorry if I the message I sent you didn't arrive... but... somebody decided that it was time to work on the cables of my block... the result was two day without the net... btw I see you succeeded in submitting a beautiful piece!

2008-08-07 [WonderTweek]: Sorry if it's too big <<;

2008-08-11 [5thwitch]: no, that's good, so we can appreciate the wonderful bright colours you used!

2008-08-11 [ririmu_chan]: color? I knew i forgot something. lol and as far as the snow, you can write that off easy cause that really happens at night in some deserts. I am going to one on the 22 that when you take a picture at night it looks like it is snowing. ^.^ anyway cute creation Sternenlitch.

2008-08-11 [WonderTweek]: Thanks ^^

2008-08-13 [5thwitch]: OK, message to all, the end date is 21/08. after that date the submissions will be closed and you will have another 10 days to finish the drawing. kisses!

2008-08-21 [theworm]: ^^ yours is awesome too ^^ :P

2008-08-22 [WonderTweek]: Aww thanks :3

2008-08-22 [5thwitch]: very interesting [theworm]!

2008-08-22 [ririmu_chan]: opps, forgot Happy Birthday. Im off to vacation so i will see you all in two weeks!

2008-09-01 [5thwitch]: thank you! I'm just came back from vacation. soon i will proclamate the winner!

2008-09-03 [ririmu_chan]: I am back from vacation too!... 5thwitch where did you go? I went to black rock city.

2008-09-03 [5thwitch]: I went in the south of italy first then i came back to the north and I had a week by the beautiful mountains of the orco valley. i will post the photo soon. did you had a great time?

2008-09-04 [Future Dictator]: ooo i want to go to italy! my school has a study abroad thing there for my department but i dont think i can go :(

2008-09-05 [ririmu_chan]: I did!ty. I cant wait to see photos! I will be posting photos of my vacation soon too... just not here i have another place i will be posting. It will take me a while to get the photos up cause i have to do some editing. (and un-packing...)

2008-09-05 [Future Dictator]: where is black rock city?

2008-09-05 [ririmu_chan]: NV USA. just outside of Gerlach.

2008-09-05 [WonderTweek]: What's italy like? I've only been to Rome and to be honest, it wasn't as amazing as everyone says it is XD
I mean yeah the ruins were gorgeous, and I loved the old architecture
However the city life was so crazy I was like @.@

2008-09-06 [5thwitch]: well, Italy is really different in every region, for example the north is etremely different from the south, architecturally culturaly and environmentally. btw even if piedmont (the region i live, with capital turin) and lombardy (the region near us with capital milan) are so near, they're extremely different. It is said that Milan is the capital of the north and Rome the capital of the south. in fact even if they're too two big cities of italy they are different, Rome is simply historical, great, monumental, warm and luminous, Milan is chaotic,vertically developped, cold and foggy. you know milan It's more Tokyo-like than italy-like as turin is. 

2008-09-06 [Future Dictator]: hows florence? school has art program there i want to do

some day i'll cross that annoying alantic ocean *fistshake*

2008-09-07 [WonderTweek]: Interesting.
Yeah I assumed not every place in Italy would be like Rome taking into account that Rome = HUGE tourist attraction.
But I was curious, thanks for informing me :3

2008-09-10 [5thwitch]: well, florence is more rome-like but i've never been to florence so i can't tell you if it's hugely influenced by the tourist industry... i think that it's incredibly difficult for a tourist to capture the real spirit of a city when it's so full of people that is not born or doesn't live there.

2008-09-11 [WonderTweek]: Exactly.
Like when I'm in Munich, it's so difficult to just walk by the Glockenspiel because everyone's so fasinated by it, it's like a pile of people XD, I mean yeh I've watched the little story once, but after that t's just another part of the city to me.

2008-09-17 [Future Dictator]: sooo... anyone won

2008-09-17 [WonderTweek]: I..dunno XD

2008-09-20 [ririmu_chan]: yesterday was talk like a pirate day. did anyone talk like a pirate? oh, that reminds me of a joke
what does a pirate and a pimp have in common? they both say yoho!

2008-09-21 [WonderTweek]: XD

2008-09-22 [5thwitch]: Hi my sweethearts, i wanted to tell you that i didn't forgot. it's just that very nicely my university anticipated of about 20 days the date to present the degree final work, so this weeks I had to work on it, hope to solve all before the weekend. Sorry!

2008-09-22 [Future Dictator]: take your time :) my university loves to give me tons of work too :P

2008-09-23 [ririmu_chan]: homework? well i work from home does that count? lol

2008-10-11 [ririmu_chan]: hum almost two months and no one has won... Hey i think everyones a winner! yeay. (we were all winners before i just felt like pointing that out) oh and while i am thinking bout it... darklaw, what did you use to do the inking? I have been looking for a good inking pen and have yet to find one. please tell me? please?

2008-10-11 [WonderTweek]: Yeah, everyone did a wonderful job on these I think.I love how everyone's is so unique and beautiful in their own way.
Cept for mine XD I got all lazys on it <<;

2008-10-11 [ririmu_chan]: not uh. you did more on a computer then i could dream of doing Sternenlicht! you computer skills are > then mine. a lot better! trust me the collest thing i can make on a computer is a pie graph and i dont think thats something to gloat about. *hey everyone i can make a pie graph* see not very cool. but you, you can make a whole piece of art with structure and color. very cool. so dont shoot yourself down bout it. if there was a computer art contest between you and i um umless it was a pie graph contest people would say "whats with the pie graph entry?" lol for what its worth i think you did an awesome job along with everyone else. It takes a lot of guts to put your own art up to be judged by other people.

2008-10-12 [WonderTweek]: Aww thanks ^^
Just for that, I'mma start a pie graph art contest, you'll be sure to win! XD

2008-10-12 [Future Dictator]: mmmm...pie......

2008-10-12 [WonderTweek]: :3

2008-10-13 [5thwitch]: Well, as you said, everyone won! BTW [pianista] and me decided the winners but i'm still doing the pages with the winners and a gallery of all the drawings, it should be finished in 2 days.

2008-10-13 [ririmu_chan]: yeay! Sternenlicht keep me posted on that pie graph contest. lol um pie does sound good. I think i will have some for breakfeast.

2008-10-13 [WonderTweek]: X3 Okies!
