2005-12-19 [Atayemi]: It is pretty hard to understand isn't it? >_<
2005-12-19 [Paz]: Oh yea, it really hard but I can work somethings so it's not that bad. The only thing I can't do is draw right to the illustrator :S
2005-12-19 [Tamel]: but, i dont want to have to use a photo-manip just to make my work 'more likely to win'
2005-12-19 [shotokan_gal]: [Tamel] - as I said above, I don't think any of the finalists were photomanips (or even if there were any in the contest). If you mean cg-ed art, well that's different, but takes just as much skill as regular mediums (I certainly can't do it).
2005-12-19 [shotokan_gal]: And don't get so hung up on winning or not winning. I'm sure everyone put a lot of effort into there work (I did, and mine didn't make it either) but there have to be final winners, and it can't be everyone - that's the point of a competition. Just try to have fun by entering :)
2005-12-19 [Atayemi]: Thats what I did ;P *claps for everyone* Nice work everyone, you all did great :)
2005-12-19 [dimmu_borgir3212]: where did mine go!?
2005-12-19 [shotokan_gal]: It was removed for not following the theme.
2005-12-19 [dimmu_borgir3212]: they were reindeer how is that not in the theme?
2005-12-19 [shotokan_gal]: If you read the more specific theme on the main page (which was later added to the top of this one), or had payed attention to the comments on this page a little more, you'd know the answer to that.
2005-12-19 [iippo]: The theme was fantasy creatures giving pressies to each others.
2005-12-19 [moira hawthorne]: the theme was gift giving... niot just holiday images...
2005-12-19 [Paz]: The theme is 'What would fantasy races give other fantasy races' yours was just a picture of reindeer, it did not follow the theme
2005-12-19 [dimmu_borgir3212]: nevermind... damn i did not see that. uggg. well i'll try next year.
2005-12-19 [moira hawthorne]: but didnt you submit it last year to this same contest?
2005-12-19 [dimmu_borgir3212]: no i had a diffrent one,
2005-12-20 [Elisha Kelly]: who did a photo manip? mine was a sketch inked and coloured on Gimp... where did the whole photo manip com from?, :( I thought yours would have been a shoe in [Mom], I really liked it.
2005-12-20 [Charybdis]: Photomanipulat
2005-12-20 [moira hawthorne]: fun that... I was thinking O might have done one.. but than I didnt so that was fine..
2005-12-20 [Elisha Kelly]: oh... I think I knw what [Tamel] mean't... the reason I do most of my art on the puter for Elftown competitions is because 1. my paintings are to big to scan... and photos don't give the same quality as a scan... and 2. because my drawings can be messy, so it is better if I ink and colour them, and 3. It is challenging, and easier to fix if you stuff up :). Remeber that most cg art starts out as drawings... but colour really adds a whole new dimension to an artwork... though it still all comes down to design and skill. :P
2006-01-10 [Nicoline]: WOW! those are really good.. Keep up the good work
