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 :)

2006-09-05 [SilverFire]: *haunt*

2006-09-05 [iippo]: Danke. Also. Now what? Should there be a list of people to see who's doing the feature at what time? Password? Forum protection?

2006-09-05 [SilverFire]: How about people message you with the link & the blurb, and we/you sort it out. Ehm, then you could just password the page to stop loons ruining it.

2006-09-05 [Aradon Templar]: x.X And iippo takes off. Wiki done entirely while I was away at school. Mreh, I was never very good at writing the featured blurbs.

2006-09-06 [iippo]: o.O I had a rare burst of wiki-making. Must have been Silvie's potato-power rubbing off on me. But it should be someone else's feature next week, so get to it too, me lovelies.
Should there be a carrot? Something like "if you make a feature, you get *nifty thing here*"? A badge?

2006-09-06 [SilverFire]: it might be better if you make the picture smaller on the page itself, so people click to enlarge.

2006-09-06 [iippo]: Arrite, thumby. (No, i'm not calling you a thumby, just... yeah. Thumbnail)

2006-09-06 [SilverFire]: That's the word. :P I'm having vocab problems today, I keep forgetting the word 'curtains' and since we're tryiong to put a curtain rail up, it's annoying... the other one is... ehum... *forgot it again* I keep calling it a border though, except it's not a border... it's a ... thing. Tits. *asks Dan* Skirting board!

2006-09-06 [iippo]: Heh. So I order you or Tempie to do the next one? Who else is watching, there were three when Silvie made an appearance, so now there's two I'm not aware of. >_>  <_<

2006-09-06 [Perplexity]: Very cool idea - I must admit I haven't visited Elfwood in quite some time and it's been even longer since I updated my own gallery there. I just find more of a sense of community here in Elftown and like that instant gratification of uploading pics when I want. Thank you for taking the time to find really quality art to share with us here though, and remind me why I got involved with Elfwood in the first place! If I come across anything that really moves me, I will try to submit a feature here, too. Great work, [iippo]!

2006-09-06 [iippo]: Thanks Plex, I hope you'll feature someone, too :)
And for the 2 days that this wiki has really existed, it really has helped me spend more time in the Woods. *ish addicted to the random button*

2006-09-06 [Linderel]: *stalk*

2006-09-07 [Aradon Templar]: The random button for the win :D
Sadly, I have little initiative to do things, unless someone tells me specifically to do it ('Social loafing', according to my psychology class). So I'll take this as a hint to post the next one. When will it be updated? Weekly, for now? What day of the week, if so? Or, if not, when should I put up the next one? (By put up, I mean message to iippo. I read the page ^^')

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. -_-
