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 :)

2006-09-07 [iippo]: Yeah, I think weekly's ok. So changing around the 13th?
Oh, and I'll have to remember how to faff the past-version links as the archive. -_-

2006-09-07 [Aradon Templar]: I believe it's along the lines of: [The Elfwood Selections@wiki1]; just stick the page number at the end of the @wiki part.

2006-09-07 [iippo]: :) Hmm, I'll probably have to add the artist's name in the archive too, so someone doesn't get featured twice...

2006-09-15 [Lady Evangeline]: I love the idea of this Iippo! maybe a banner or two for those of us who'd like to advertise in our houses? I really hope this catches on because it's a wonderful way to bridge the gap!

2006-09-15 [iippo]: Thank you! Humm, badges, yes... I'll see what I can do (and if anyone else also likes making them, feel free. :)

2006-09-15 [RaineDagyr]: Great idea, Elfwood HAS grown too far out of people's minds. I started there and then came here. x.x

2006-09-19 [iippo]: Tomorrow's the 20th guys. Anyone coming up with a feature?

2006-09-19 [Perplexity]: Gotta browse. How many mod's choices are too many for an artist to have? I wanna choose someone who hasn't been up on the main page too much, but so many of the galleries that catch my eye have a few gold stars in them. I know the specific piece I choose cannot be a mod's choice, but what if the artist has some other good work to choose from?

2006-09-19 [iippo]: Well, when you can't count the stars with one glance or with the fingers of one hand (like 6+), it's starting to get to be a lot. But it does depend on the amount of images too, if there are 7 images of which 5 are mod's choices, it is a bit high as a percentage, and reversly if someone has 9 mods' in a full gallery of 100 images, there'll probably be some hidden treasures, too. :)

2006-09-19 [Perplexity]: ok, so I shall try to use my own best judgement. Which, hasn't failed me... too much...*cough*

2006-09-19 [SilverFire]: Does it matter if the gallery hasn't been updates for three or so years?

2006-09-19 [iippo]: No, I don't think it matters. Art is there, and it's timeless.

2006-09-19 [Lady Evangeline]: amen to that iippo!

2006-09-20 [Perplexity]: yay I contributed! =B

2006-09-20 [Aradon Templar]: :) danke. And nice find. I can't see one face that I'm sure is there. It must be staring me in the face, and I am just looking over it. Irks me :P

2006-09-27 [Perplexity]: Nice one, Silverfire - and very astute observations on your part. 

2006-09-27 [SilverFire]: Eek, I needed a thesaurus. :P I used the same words too many times. *shame*

2006-10-04 [Perplexity]: "Ever so slightly gay" LMAO Hey, only a really secure straight man can wear a pink shirt. Go, Peter, it's yer birthday! =D
I think you make some really good points though, iippo. Such good line art, but it's just feels so unfinished without an environment for him to be standing in. It is an interesting idea to superimpose the man and the superhero, though I am unsure about the execution here. I think it's a good starting point and that the artist should keep going with this idea!

2006-10-20 [iippo]: Sorry it's late (and early o.O).
And how damn hard has this ET pseudo-HTML gotten all of a sudden? >_> Took me like 6 edits to get the img tag working >.<;;;;;

2006-10-20 [Perplexity]: Oh beautiful Halloween themed selection! Nice find, iippo =D

2006-10-24 [iippo]: Feel free to make more features people :) Don't want this to be only about what I like.
