2009-11-01 [arthemis_]: Lol, don't take forever though, I'm dying of impatience, lolz.

Lol, I'm just messing with yah ;)

2009-11-01 [Titanium Tiger]: well it might take me a little bit Im using the good old fashion paint program !I dont have a camera or a scanner so if I printed it out and colored it i would have no way to get it back on the computer!

2009-11-02 [deeterhi]: you don't need to feel pressured, but it would be nice to wrap up this contest before the end of the year ^^

2009-11-02 [Titanium Tiger]: sounds good

2009-11-07 [arthemis_]: It's going to be sooo hard to judge this! They are all absolutely amazing!

2009-12-24 [Rondel]: Yay! There's still room for my entry! I just wrapped up a project that has been eating my time for a LONG time, and it would be nice to do something recreational. 

My not-quite-finished Traditional Media entry has been haunting me with reproachful looks every time I flip through the artwork currently on my "working clipboard", and I was CERTAIN that it would now be out-of-date. 

I'm sorry for the rest of you that this has dragged on for so long, but I'm *delighted* to get a chance to enter it -- and demonstrate a less usual medium, since I've been colouring it using soybean oil crayons, because I don't tolerate the paraffin wax kind. 

I know that crayons are generally considered "kids stuff", but (quite apart from the faux stained glass I used to do by using them on paper that's on a buffet warming tray set to low heat) I love the way the soy oil ones blend. They're not quite as opaque as wax crayons, but I think they have their own strong points as a medium, and I'm hoping that this piece will help show that. :)

2009-12-29 [deeterhi]: crayons's are tools just like any other medium, and it's not about what you use but how well you can use them. I can't wait to see what you have in store for your entry, Rondel :)

2010-03-07 [deeterhi]: Hmm. This contest has been running for quite a while and I was thinking it might be time to wrap it up. I feel like it will take too long to reach the 20 entry mark, so the entries already here will be judged. What do you guys think?

If you have an entry that hasn't been uploaded and is nearly completed, there is still time to submit it to be judged. I'll give to the end of the week for any last minute entries.

After that, I'm going to have a small panel of judges (probably me and two other people) pick a top five, and then I'll put up a poll for everyone to vote for the winner. Sound good?

2010-03-07 [Yncke]: Sounds good to me. :) 15 is already a nice number of entries.

2010-03-07 [arthemis_]: Yeah! :D

2010-03-08 [Kaimee]: EEK! must finish entry... >.>

2010-03-08 [deeterhi]: all right :) The new deadline is Saturday, midnight (Elftown time), for all you last minute entrants :)

2010-03-20 [deeterhi]: So, there's the judges' top five picks. Now, it's time for everyone else to voice in and VOTE! :)

2010-03-20 [Kaimee]: Oooh I really wish no.14 were in the judges picks!

2010-03-21 [Jeccabee]: ugh...I wsa torn between d and e...for me the coloring "fit" with the style of the line work best. But I like the faded background of d. They are all great though!
I wish I could have finished mine in time. I just had not personal art time left after I got my new jobs. :P

2010-03-21 [Jeccabee]: I also like a for the lines of color...impressive! Kinda reminds me of Snow White. :)

2010-03-21 [Triola]: Thanks, Kaimee :)

2010-03-21 [arthemis_]: I choose B because it was the sky coloring I wanted, before I saw that somebody else had done it :D And it's such a warm picture.

2010-09-03 [Yncke]: Congratulations, [Triola]! :)

2010-09-03 [Kaimee]: Yeah, congrats, I'm always so pleased when the one I want to win, wins! :D

2010-09-03 [Triola]: Oh, wow, awesomeness :D

*had forgotten all about this contest* >.> <.<
