2007-02-23 [iippo]: It ever so slightly seems to defeat the purpose. o.O The point is to get you to sit and work on your art for every day, to make a piece from start to finish... I'd say no, because doing it all on one go is more interesting, more intense (and it's a bit unfair to judge if some people work intensly without going back the next day to fix things, and someone else takes their time and works on something for many days and enters it as if it has been done in one day...)
But after the contest if you have done something very interesting during this thing, I do encourage you to work on it further afterwards, just to see what you can do with an interesting thing done in a day if you are given all the time you need (sorry, this is my mahjongg philosophy shining through :P) But yeah, all done in one day please. :3
2007-02-23 [Elegy - gone]: Oki, that's what I thought, but it's always safest to check ^_^
2007-02-23 [Sienta]: Ack!!! I want to...... but look at the artists! *sigh* Maybe I'll do it anyways...
2007-02-24 [SilverFire]: Don't look at the artists, :P Enter for your own sake. :)
2007-02-24 [Ryo-Oni]: The point is to challange one's self...oh, my willpower has never been very strong..., and I am known as THE GREAT PROCRASTINATOR
2007-02-24 [iippo]: And forcing yourself to draw everyday for a month might get you into a good habit of practicing daily and you might end up keeping it up after the contest, which would be great. Drawing's a skill just like any other skill - regular practice is key.
2007-02-24 [Elegy - gone]: Bah, that's true. And I practice waaaay too seldom. I really need to get a hold of myself, and this contest seems like just the thing, although I will probably go crazy over it =P
2007-02-24 [herrschneemann]: Is some rehab service available to the contestants when this is done? You know, to get over the crazyness and the stress to produce something worthwhile in a day amongst our usual toils =P
2007-02-24 [Elegy - gone]: Gods, I hope so xP
Oh, and I have another question as well, if I decide to enter another contest in addition to this one during the thirty days, is that contest entry valid here as well or will I have to make a whole new drawing for this competition?
2007-02-24 [iippo]: As long as it is done on that day and the other contest allows it as well, then yes it's fine. Usually those "enter unique work" -rules have the point that people will actually bother to make new work, but since that is the entire point of this contest, it works well. :) And that's actually a kind of a good idea - if you can't think of what to draw for here, you can have a look at other contests' themes and do something that fits them.
2007-02-24 [Sienta]: Hmmmmm...... Now, the problem is not that I don't draw every day. I draw WAY too much. Usually all over my schoolwork. ^_^ But Will I actually have time to POST it. And I'm such a procratinator. STILL! This could be good to help me cure myself of procrastinatio
2007-02-26 [GoneGone]: What about one-shot stories, or postcard stories? Or even poems for that matter.
2007-02-26 [iippo]: o.O We are talking about visual arts. Not that making a poem for every day for a month wouldn't be awesome, it's just that text and art can't be compared and judged fairly. So while I heartily encourage you to do that, it can't really be an entry if it isn't an image - simply because of the judging: everybody voting in the polls would not read text entries, they'd look at the pictures and vote from those.
2007-02-26 [GoneGone]: Pity.
2007-02-26 [dayah]: okay. have a question, doe we only get to chose one thing we want to do for the 30 days or can we summit a drawing one day, a photo the next, and so forth if the inspiration hits us, or just chose one kind of catigory and do that for the 30 days?
2007-02-26 [iippo]: Hmm, hadn't really thought of that. I'd say no need to keep to just one media - heck, it'd be awesome if you did 30 pieces of work in 30 different media - whatchoo think Silvie?
2007-02-26 [dayah]: lol...wholy cow...that would be alot of work.
2007-02-26 [iippo]: Well you could count pencil as one, ink as one, different kinds of paint as ones, different kind of photography as ones etc... The end of that you'd probably had discovered your forte medium :D
2007-02-26 [The Fuzzily Psychotic Llama is Dead]: I'm getting photoshop on friday...2 days to try and work it out if I want photomanipulat
2007-02-26 [SilverFire]: to iippo: I agree, no need to stick to the same media. To Fuzzily Psychotic Llama of Death: No. If you want to do a photo manipulation the photo you're manipping should also be taken that day.
2007-02-27 [dayah]: when is march first..on march first of course. but is it tommarow?
2007-02-27 [herrschneemann]: It's the day after tomorow, Thursday.
2007-02-27 [dayah]: oh okay..thanks..
2007-02-27 [The Fuzzily Psychotic Llama is Dead]: yeah, me too, my previous commeont about 2 days was wrong, I thought february had 31 days!
2007-03-01 [Ocean Soul]: Sooo... do we have to submit the first entry within the next 5 hours (7am now) or tomorrow, march 2nd, 12am?
2007-03-01 [iippo]: Submit by midnight, in the next 15 hours.
2007-03-01 [Ocean Soul]: ok :)
2007-03-01 [itoe]: I have the next obvious question. Now that it's March 1st, where do we post our entries?
2007-03-01 [Ryo-Oni]: Isnt it 12 already?
2007-03-01 [Ocean Soul]: 12 o'clock midnight :)
2007-03-01 [Ryo-Oni]: This is so confusing...ha
2007-03-01 [Ocean Soul]: By the end of the 1st, 12 o'clock in the night from 1st-2nd, you have to have your image for the 1st submitted.
2007-03-01 [Ryo-Oni]: Is there any way to submit it now?
2007-03-01 [Ocean Soul]: I personally wouldn't know where to, but theory says that you can submit it earlier on the day, just not later than 11:59:59pm ;)
2007-03-01 [Linderel]: Not until either iippo or Silvie comes along and puts up that submission wiki for today, I'd gather...
2007-03-01 [Ocean Soul]: *nodnod*
2007-03-01 [Ryo-Oni]: Alright, so tell me. By elftown time, is it now 12 in the morning, or afternoon?
2007-03-01 [Ocean Soul]: 12:40pm, so early afternoon :)
2007-03-01 [Ocean Soul]: I think if it was early morning, it would say 00:40 ^^
2007-03-01 [Ryo-Oni]: Oh, okay, now I understand. Hmm, I definately won't be here before time to post. Is it cheating to ask someone to post for me?
2007-03-01 [Ocean Soul]: Probably not, since it is only required for the entry to be made by you and on the day of submission. But I wouldn't really know =/
Well, I'm asking pretty please, will someone post this when the time comes?
2007-03-01 [Linderel]: The time has come! :D
2007-03-01 [BlackDragon]: Nice.. now I just have to make something.. hehe.
2007-03-01 [Linderel]: My entry for today is... something completely random. I had no inspiration whatsoever, but didn't want to miss the first day. xD Thus the random doodle was born. *hopes for better days*
2007-03-01 [Elegy - gone]: Hehe, I always do faces when I don't have any inspiration >.> =P
2007-03-01 [Linderel]: I should practice faces. The individual elements are okayish, but I can't seem to get the proportions down most of the time. -_-
2007-03-01 [Elegy - gone]: Use reference photos till you get it right ^_^
2007-03-01 [Linderel]: Maybe I should. :3
2007-03-01 [Elegy - gone]: Hehe, you don't have to, but practice and references make perfect =P
2007-03-01 [Linderel]: That's what they say. :P
2007-03-01 [The Fuzzily Psychotic Llama is Dead]: I get Photoshop tomorrow - be prepared to be shocked at my ameteurness!!!
2007-03-01 [stuffAEAmade]: Oh, I had been thinking about entering, and finally decided I would today, but the wiki's locked.
Can I still enter up, or am I too late? My piece for today is already done.
2007-03-01 [SilverFire]: Just a few minutes after I decide we're not going to get any more entrants - I'll add your name to this page, stick your entry up. :P
2007-03-01 [stuffAEAmade]: Thanks! This should get me drawing on a more regular basis again. :)
2007-03-01 [SilverFire]: No problem. <.< ten minutues left for all those who haven't entered for today, yet. :O
2007-03-01 [herrschneemann]: Are animations admissible? i.e. Flash animations or stop motion stuff.
2007-03-02 [SilverFire]: As long as all the frames are made that day, yes. :)
2007-03-02 [OMERTA]: I'm so angry!!! I was late... I was expecting it to be 12 midnight but in Texas... I'm so dumb. I was late for the first one... does anybody know when 12 midnight on Elftown is at Texas.. like what time will it be in Texas when it's 12am in Elftown?
2007-03-02 [SilverFire]: Well, it's pretty much 2:00 Am now, ET time (ET time can be seen at the top of the page, just under the username-searc
2007-03-02 [OMERTA]: Thank you I get it now.. man tht was real dunb of me!
2007-03-02 [SilverFire]: No problem :P The only reason I remember ET time is because it's the same as my time. :3
2007-03-02 [Sienta]: Crap!!! I missed it too!!! *grumble grumble* I HAVE to figure out when midnight elftown time is......
2007-03-02 [SilverFire]: Five and a half hours ago :3 so just take that off your own time. ET time is also conveniently located at the top of Elftown, just under the search username option/box. :)
2007-03-02 [Sienta]: Yup I know.... but that still doesn't mean my brain is going to remember that.... ah well, I have a picture that I convienently began drawing around five hours ago. ^_^ Lucky me.
2007-03-02 [*DIABOLICAL MASQUERADE*]: I guess I missed this contest. I just found out about it today too! I want to enter! I'm sorry I'm late. I actually have drawn something every day these past couple days too.
2007-03-02 [SilverFire]: Keep the page on watch - there may be a next time, depending on how this one goes. :P
2007-03-02 [*DIABOLICAL MASQUERADE*]: Ok. Thanks, I definitely will enter next month's then.
2007-03-02 [Nostradamia]: hey! can I still join??? I mean, for how long has this contest been running?
2007-03-02 [*DIABOLICAL MASQUERADE*]: I think they started it the first of this month, I'm not sure either
2007-03-02 [Sienta]: Yup, started yesterday.
2007-03-02 [*DIABOLICAL MASQUERADE*]: Nostradamia, you and I will just enter next month then, dont worry, I think they are going to do one for next month, we'll get our chance.
2007-03-02 [Sienta]: Yeah, no worries. There's always a next time! ^_^
2007-03-03 [Sienta]: All hail the day three ENTIES!!!! YAY!! *hee hee*
2007-03-03 [herrschneemann]: Will there be just one poll at the end that people will have to vote who has the best overall art in the 30 days, or will it be a seperate poll for everyday?
2007-03-03 [SilverFire]: ...does every single person need to make a comment about that, or can we leave it now? fair enough someone pointing it out once - but it's really not funny third time round. Yes, I typoed, I'm sorry, I was very tired. I made many typoes/mistake
2007-03-03 [Sienta]: I'm really sorry, I didn't mean to be rude. I was trying to celebrate the funy typo. I wasn't meaning to be offensive.
2007-03-03 [Sienta]: Funny. I meant funny. *sweatdrop*
2007-03-03 [The Fuzzily Psychotic Llama is Dead]: lol
2007-03-03 [SilverFire]: You were the first to point it out, so uhm... that wasn't aimed at you? The other comments got deleted by someone. O.o
2007-03-03 [Sienta]: Oh...... But I still feel bad, so I'll apologize again. Sorry!
2007-03-04 [BlackDragon]: .. No comment really. I'll laugh when it happens a third time though.
2007-03-04 [Teufelsweib]: Day Four Entges... whoever makes these wiki's sure is dyslectic or something.
2007-03-04 [Elegy - gone]: I think the Entges one was made as a joke, since everyone was complaining about the Enties mistake yesterday =P though, I might be wrong...
2007-03-04 [Ocean Soul]: I don't really care whatever the entries page is called =P Entges sounds just fine to me xD
2007-03-04 [Elegy - gone]: Hehe, same =P it would actually be rather cool if every day the name was different, like, the next one Entles, and then Entwes etc :D
2007-03-04 [Ocean Soul]: *nodnod* =D
2007-03-04 [sequeena_rae]: Oooh!
2007-03-04 [Elegy - gone]: Oooh what? =P
2007-03-04 [sequeena_rae]: Oooh this is a very interesting contest xP
2007-03-04 [Elegy - gone]: Haha, true =P it's exactly what I need to get my lazy self to draw more often =P
2007-03-04 [sequeena_rae]: Oh indeed :D and you get to choose your own theme too which is great! Shame I missed it :(
2007-03-04 [Elegy - gone]: Maybe there will be another one when this is finished? You never know :3
2007-03-04 [sequeena_rae]: I hope so ^^ It'll be nice to see the rest of the entries though :D
2007-03-04 [Jitter]: I hope so too cause I couldn't afford entering this one
2007-03-05 [Little Insane Cat]: is there gonna be a April 30 day contest?
2007-03-05 [BlackDragon]: People have different kinds of humor. =)
2007-03-05 [SilverFire]: Having different senses of humour is one thing, not being able to recognise something as a joke because it's not your personal taste is different ;)
2007-03-05 [Elegy - gone]: *munches on cookie* :3
2007-03-05 [iippo]: Or did it? (Start as a mistake, that is) Dun-dun-dunnn! Tension music!
2007-03-05 [Draugluin]: Heh, you've gotta love those Battlestar galactica subtitles ^^
2007-03-05 [Teufelsweib]: no cookie for me then, I sold my humour on e-bay looong time ago ^^
2007-03-06 [GoneGone]: What the heck is happening to the spelling? It seems to be getting progressively worse as the days pass. At this rate by the end of the month we won't even be able to recognize what wiki we're posting our entries in.
2007-03-06 [Elegy - gone]: Yup ^_^ Awesome, isn't it? :D
2007-03-06 [GoneGone]: The judges will have to go looking for us.
2007-03-06 [Teufelsweib]: sheesh, don't you have a sense of humour? a joke is still funny after 3 days doing exactly the same thing!
2007-03-06 [SilverFire]: Except it's not the same thing, there are new references from conversations on the old page thrown in. ;)
2007-03-06 [Elegy - gone]: Indeed, the grand question mark discussion *nods sagely*
2007-03-06 [GoneGone]: Poi!
2007-03-07 [Teufelsweib]: 't is not the same word, but the same intention, no? if you look at is as a joke!
but then, I have no humour, so I'll learn to keep on laughing at this for all 30 days to come!
2007-03-07 [SilverFire]: Depends what you're calling 'intention'.:)
2007-03-07 [Teufelsweib]: well, here apparently it's making a daily routine out of writing down a wrong name for the entries, no?
2007-03-07 [SilverFire]: But the intention of humour changes. If it's bothering you that much, you could always just stop watching the page. :D
2007-03-07 [Teufelsweib]: it's not bothering me, I find it interesting ^^
2007-03-11 [GoneGone]: You know, come voting time and elftowners are invited to peruse, they're gonna wonder what the heck happened to [SilverFire] when she wrote the day-pages. It looks like a progressing brain injury.
2007-03-11 [iippo]: Oi! Leave her brain injuries alone! >:/
:P (and that is all I have to contribute to the discussion at hand)
2007-03-12 [Draugluin]: Or they will realise it was a running joke. I hope. Mind, she does posses nun-chucks now. >.>
2007-03-12 [The Fuzzily Psychotic Llama is Dead]: *has worked out all the wierd writing* hehe, it's probably so people can't put their design on the wiki before the day starts, so they don't cheat.
2007-03-12 [SilverFire]: They couldn't do that anyway, for a multitude of reasons. 1. The pages don't exist before then, so it'd be fairly obvious they posted it beforehand. 2. I'd get a wiki-changes notification before the day, 3. Even if I didn't notice, somehow, possibly due to temporary blindness, the time of editing is recorded every time you edit a page, so we could see from that, that they edited before the specific day, etc. etc.
It's just entirely a joke based on my first typo... however, it does mean that next contest, the correct spellings of the pages will still be free. :D
2007-03-12 [GoneGone]: ...and I was also just joking...
2007-03-12 [SilverFire]: ... who misunderstood you?
2007-03-12 [GoneGone]: A psychotic llama?
2007-03-12 [SilverFire]: I don't really see Llama misunderstandi
2007-03-12 [Linderel]: The first typo reminds me of ents. Every time. Cute little ent kids, to be specific.
2007-03-12 [Draugluin]: As in the big walking tree things?
2007-03-12 [Draugluin]: I have trouble imagining a cute one XP
2007-03-12 [SilverFire]: Think of the little baby plants in Un'goro Crater - They're cute. :D
2007-03-12 [Draugluin]: o.O They freaked the hell out of me. Maybe it's a woman thing. I'm my book cute does not include walking plants. o.o The tree of infinite knowledge may actually know all our secrets.
2007-03-12 [SilverFire]: Maybe. :3 They are cute. I'd love a little walking plant, it'd be so awesome.
2007-03-12 [Draugluin]: Roite, I'll get to work on it immediately. Would you possibly settle for a cat with leaves stapled to it?
2007-03-12 [Elegy - gone]: Aww, I just got the cutest mental image of a confused little kitten with leaves sticking out of its fur! :3 (I conveniently ignored the 'stapled' part >.>)
2007-03-12 [Linderel]: Aw aw aw! I demand you draw that! :3
2007-03-12 [Elegy - gone]: But I suck at drawing animals =(
2007-03-12 [Linderel]: Aww. :/ But you drew George! And Arthur! :O
2007-03-12 [Elegy - gone]: Hm... true... and Arthur was at the very least part kitten xP
2007-03-12 [Linderel]: Mm-hm. :3 *snuggles*
2007-03-12 [Elegy - gone]: I'll see what I can do tomorrow ^_^
2007-03-12 [Linderel]: Yaaaaaaaay! ^_^ *slobberglomps
2007-03-12 [Elegy - gone]: *censored action >.>* :3
2007-03-12 [Linderel]: *giggle* ^_^
2007-03-12 [Draugluin]: Oh dear, what have a brought about o.O
2007-03-13 [Elegy - gone]: Obviously something you hadn't expected =P
2007-03-14 [SilverFire]: You lied! No kitten with leaves in its fur. *sobs*
2007-03-14 [Elegy - gone]: I tried! I had it almost done, then my computer went all wacko and shut down, and I since I'd been silly enough to forget to save, I was left without a kitten and with no time to start over =(
2007-03-14 [Linderel]: ;______;
2007-03-16 [Ocean Soul]: Play.. Holdem..? Makes me think of poker somehow =P
2007-03-16 [herrschneemann]: I think she's slowly going for that XP
2007-03-16 [Ocean Soul]: I can't say I mind =P
2007-03-20 [GoneGone]: I can't believe there's only ten days left.
2007-03-20 [Draugluin]: It is official. Now British Telecoms will pay for their insubordinatio
2007-04-01 [SilverFire]: If anyone thinkgs I've made a mistake with the scoring so far, please tell me. O.O
2007-04-01 [Ocean Soul]: Mhh I thought you said I wouldn't get penalized for the second day :/ I would understand though, that's alright :)
2007-04-01 [SilverFire]: I thought you said you were going to put picture up in its place, and assumed you had done so, so I didn't factor it into my mathy. *edits*
2007-04-01 [Ocean Soul]: No no, it's alright, it's not fair for me to get special treatment :)
2007-04-01 [SilverFire]: It's hardly special treatment - you did an entry for the day, put it up on the right page, I saw it, others saw it, it didn't break any rules, and then for personal reasons you chose to take it down. But you still did a legit piece for that day. :)
2007-04-01 [SilverFire]: Changed, thanks. :)
2007-04-01 [Elegy - gone]: No problem, just trying to ruin things for my competitors >.> =P
2007-04-01 [SilverFire]: Psht *deducts points for not drawing the confused kitten with leaves in its fur* :P
2007-04-01 [stuffAEAmade]: Psssh. I was looking for research materials at the library that day.
2007-04-01 [SilverFire]: Only missing one day is still fairly impressive. :)
2007-04-01 [stuffAEAmade]: Yes, it is. =3 It was a different schedule for me, I normally settle down to draw later in the evening. Midnight ET time = 7pm here.
2007-04-01 [SilverFire]: Yeah... next time, I think we might put the deadline at a different time - for the first half of teh contest ET time was in sync with England time, so I only had to stay up till midnight, then we did the day-light saving shift thing, so we were an hour ahead; so I had to stya up till 1 every day. Bit much. o.<
2007-04-01 [Elegy - gone]: Oh, darn, I completely forgot about that kitten >.<
2007-04-01 [Linderel]: You forgot?! :O You minnie. *cries*
2007-04-01 [Elegy - gone]: Awwww, I'm sowwie ;_;
2007-04-01 [Linderel]: That's okay, just as long as you draw it eventually. :3 *molests*
2007-04-01 [Elegy - gone]: Hehe, I'll try to remember it ^_^
2007-04-01 [Linderel]: ^_______^
2007-04-02 [Sienta]: Yeah, the timing was a big problem for me. HERE elftown midnight is 5 pm. And school gets out at 4 pm. So I had to do something between the time I got home and bedtime so I could scan it. *tears*
2007-04-02 [SilverFire]: Since Elftowners live allover the world, chances are, no matter when I set the deadline, it'd be problematic for someone. I figured ET-time was the easiest way I could do it without showing favour to anyone in particular; but, eh. I don't mind late nights every now and then, but 30 in a row was a bit much. :P
2007-04-02 [Little Insane Cat]: Is there gonna be one for April?
2007-04-02 [SilverFire]: Since April has already started - no, We'll do one for May, but we need this month to sort out voting for March's contest. :P
2007-04-03 [Jitter]: Yay for May <3 :3
2007-04-04 [Little Insane Cat]: ha ha ha, ok, i'll join then. Just gotta remeber! o_O
2007-04-04 [Jitter]: I will Join for may too :3
2007-04-04 [Ocean Soul]: I will.. not >>
2007-04-04 [Jitter]: awww /pat
2007-04-04 [Linderel]: I will join if I have time. *eyes entrance exam books*
2007-04-04 [Ocean Soul]: Oh btw, I will only not join because I don't have the time anymore then, not because it wasn't a good contest :)
2007-04-05 [GoneGone]: Do I really want to participate in May?
I seriously want to do better than that bloody 20 I got (I know I can), but this contest I found I put in far more effort for the crappy results I got from my work. Anyone else find that?
2007-04-05 [Linderel]: *blink* I didn't understand that sentence.
May have to do with the fact I'm not completely awake yet, but anyway. Eh?
2007-04-05 [Ocean Soul]: Urm... *joins in the blinking* I don't get it either.
2007-04-05 [iippo]: "Crappy results I got from my work" - you mean life work you do for a living or art-work you put in here? *didn't think your work was crappy results...* o.O
2007-04-05 [GoneGone]: Ok...so I was tired when I wrote that...
What I meant was I put so much time and effort into my drawings, and none of them turned out decently. Sorry about that...
2007-04-05 [Ocean Soul]: That's a lame thing to say >< Your drawings didn't seem less decent then those of the other participants (at least not to me).
And every artist does things in their own style, with their own shape and according to their own skills. So, loads of effort/caring = good; little effort/caring = bad. That's what counts, because it will make you become an even better artist! :)
2007-04-05 [Draugluin]: If you care to compare yourself to my abysmal attempts I'm sure you will measure up far higher than you rate yourself XP
2007-04-06 [GoneGone]: Thank you. :) I appreciate it.
But I mean more as an artist to put a lot of effort into a drawing and it turns out to not reflect the amount of time and effort put into it. Like I spend three hours on it and the outcome looks more like a two mintue doodle; it doesn't reflect all my effort on it. I hope this is clearer (the third time round). But thank you for the compliments!
