SAC Special Discussion Thread

68 posts in this topic

Anyone else have an opinion on this issue?

IMHO as the votes are blind, we don't know who and how much everyone submitted... So the focus anyhow is for the image. Same artist could have different views for the same theme. At the end only the audience's vote rules.

Very good points. So far, I see no comments from the opposing view. Let's give it a try and see how it goes.

I'll make if official. Multiple entries allowed but not to exceed two entries per competition. This new rule starts now for the SAC and WOTW comps. Those are the only comps I control, so I cannot speak for the other comp hosts.

@ MountNMan, theme idea added to the list

@ MadJik, theme idea added to the list

Idea - space station orbiting a planet.

(yes I know - I`ve got one in my sig! I`m not biased - really I`m not. :) )

So I take it that's a vote for the next theme? I'll only do one if it's a Starbucks. (For you who don't know, Starbucks is a coffee shop that seems to be on every street corner in the USA)

WOW ! I started this exact image (idea) last year and never could finish it. It was pretty bad, but I still like the idea. I'll add this one to the list.

I'm definitely going to extend the deadline until tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m. I have been moving my office to another building and I'm wore out. I wasn't able to get to a computer all day because of the move and we didn't get the computers and servers running until almost 4:00 p.m. If anyone has another one they want to enter, send me a PM. I'll be out all day hauling old computer equipment to the recyclers, but I'll be home tomorrow evening......if I don't get eaten by bears.

Is that a steampunk ?

It could be. It would need more brass gears and tubes and leather and wood. Here is what Wikipedia says about Steam Punk

Here is a Google Image Search for Steam Punk

I had never heard of Steam Punk until Mike Ryan chose it for a SOTW theme. I researched it and had a great time with the sig and eventually won the comp with this sig, which is a spin on one of my favorite movies.

When I thought of the theme idea I was thinking about things like steam powered space ships or space stations, but I think it would be great if we left it open to what ever the artist chooses whether it be a space ship or a space suit or even maybe space weapons. Really, it's almost endless what you could come up with. I think it might be a lot of fun and would give everyone a chance to show off their metal and wood skills. I promise I won't be offended if everyone wants to go with a different theme. There are so many good ones on the list, I think it will be a great comp no matter what we choose.

You got it! Think of the Borg but done with vintage technology. So a Borg might have a pocket watch for an eye & one of those old horn things people hard when they had trouble hearing. Just the thought of this is giving me the giggles :lol:
