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

2006-11-23 [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!
