Elfwood Selections

One of the Top Three Wiki-Pages in the Wiki Awards! for the months of September/October/November


This wiki is about showing art and writing in Anyone is free to make a feature. I [iippo], won't be making any more features here, (for my next stage you can join me in Selections), but if you want to make a feature, be my guest :)


-No featuring mod's choices. They get enough attention as it is. Also featuring an artist/writer who has plenty of mod's choices and is generally a very well-knows Wooder is not very nice. This is more about the unknown treasures in the Woods.
-No featuring anything that is part of a tour. Again, they get plenty of attention as it is.
-No featuring your own work. This wiki is for honouring others, not yourself, you selfish tit. And no, don't ask your friends to feature your work either. The wiki's point is also to get us Townspeople off the streets and into the Woods, wandering and searching for things.
-What you feature doesn't have to be the best thing ever in technique, since this is not a race or a contest. If a piece caught your eye because of the philosophical theme that touched your inner self in a way that nothing else ever has - even thought it's just a pencil sketch - you can feature it.


About the feature
-No sloppyness. Good spelling and grammar are important, as well as content: you have to discuss the piece, the why it is here and what you think of it. Both ups and downs, every piece has positive and negative sides. Write at least 10 sentences.
-It is recommended that you comment on the piece in Elfwood, telling the artist the same things you'll tell us here. You can also mention that you'll do a feature here.

About this feature:
I randomed across this picture and immediately delighted in its light mood and sweet spirit. It brings back vividly childhood summer memories of similar encounters with the fascinating creatures that we share the world with. So while the artistic execution isn't professional quality (mainly in terms of colour and background shading; her line quality and composition on the other hand leave you needing nothing more), I would argue that it doesn't have to be. Give me a drawing that actually has feeling and mood over Photoshop mastery any day. And that's why I give it now on to you :)

Dividers by [eyes of frost] in Elftown Graphics. Many thanks.

2006-11-27 [iippo]: Yeah, or you can also edit the page yourself if you don't mess up the format :P

2006-11-28 [Linderel]: I don't know how you've managed to make the image that small. <_<

2006-11-28 [iippo]: Just a normal img300-tag. o.O

2006-11-28 [Linderel]: Then how come don't I see it in the properties? :3 *pokes*

2006-11-28 [iippo]: The what-now? *eye bleeds from poking* >.T
See for yourself, click edit and see it in the code. Ah dunnoe nuffin else, I jus' woik 'ere. :P

2006-11-28 [Linderel]: Yup, there it is. Funny how I don't see it when I click to see the image properties, but ah well. :P

2006-11-28 [Sunrose]: I see it in the alternate text..

2006-11-28 [iippo]: A well, you can just leave the codes and stuff as it is and just put the URL and text in the existing code, that way you'll be sure to not mess up my format :P Or send it to me, I don't mind faffing it in.

2006-11-28 [xido]: I love the idea behind this page (and how wonderfully eloquent this page states it - "This wiki is for honouring others, not yourself, you selfish tit. And no, don't ask your friends to feature your work either. The wiki's point is also to get us Townspeople off the streets and into the Woods, wandering and searching for things."

Wonderful, simply wonderful.

Also, in connection with the Elfwood galleries, the next assignment on my Dragons class (Dragons - Biology, Sociology, and Magic) is to have students peruse Elfwood for dragon pictures and ask the artists if they would be willing to post them on our Dragon Artwork and Media page. When we have a few good samples, I will submit them or have a student submit them as an final assignment. Good idea?

2006-11-28 [Linderel]: I shall send it to you, the fear of page edit is present. :P

2006-12-08 [iippo]: Many apologies for the constant delays. Please proceed to kick my butt now and next week too if I don't update often enough.
And please participate people! More features about art, fanart, writing!

2006-12-08 [shotokan_gal]: Ooh that's gorgeous! It reminds me (in a roundabout way) of a piece I saw the other week actually... now, I wonder if I kept that comment reply email ><

2006-12-08 [iippo]: Fantastic. :)

2006-12-29 [iippo]: I know the previous one didn't stay up for 7 days, but I had to catch up with my reminder message, which comes every 7 days :/ But from now on features will stay up for the week (unless I fall out of sync with my reminder message again >_>)

2006-12-30 [GLASSALIEN]: I wish ya'll a happy new year........... and bye, I won't be back to this wiki

2007-01-05 [iippo]: I'll just bring this up here as well because I'm just blown away: the parental ratings. It's like they came out of nowhere and suddenly everyone is giving a parental rating to their work. What's even more annoying and weird: most of the stuff that has got a parental rating isn't even that graphic. Even the slightest suggested gore or sexuality is now hidden behind a button that you have to press, then pixelised and then it loads the image - a pain in the butt for a slower connection. -_-
(If you don't know what I'm talking about: <URL:> for example)

2007-01-05 [shotokan_gal]: I noticed that yesterday :/ At least it doesn't demand a login like deviantart (I suppose I should just get an account there so I could view some people's work though). And it'll be because of demand, not least that annoying spammer who went on about violence and nudity, and changed names every few weeks >:(

2007-01-05 [SilverFire]: If they have to have it, I feel it should be at the discreetion of the moderators, not the artists, since it seems some artists have no idea what merits censorship and what blatantly doesn't. What got me was how many pictures were suddenly censored, I was random viewing, and every other picture, at least, and sometimes three or four ina row, were censored. And when I actually looked at the pictures I was completely at a loss as to why the picture needed to be censored.

2007-01-05 [shotokan_gal]: It seems a bit odd that the level is 0-4 (with anything above 1, don't know if that's inclusive) being hidden. It might just promote misunderstanding with people giving their picture a 2 because it's 'in the middle somewhere', but doesn't necessarily need to be hidden. Though saying that haven't actually looked at how it's implemented and explained in the extranet yet.

2007-01-05 [SilverFire]: Quoth Vel in the forums: 'Well, the rating drop-down menu reads:
General audience (no violence or sex)
Young (a little more normal)
Teen (people with wounds, but no nudity per say)
Mature (nudity, extremely violent, mature issues)'
