  1. Thanks, that was a fun one. It might be a good one to revisit some time. It's cool to see what people can do to celebs to make them look like aliens or zombies. LOL Welsh and Barbie I too have had a hard time with it. I lost my muse back in January and can't seem to get it back. I have so many unfinished pieces from last year......Maybe it will come back..... I really like the entries that people have posted. Let me have a couple of days and maybe something will come of this. If not, I'll change it. I'm really sorry guys. I wish I could explain how things are now but it's hard. Just getting work done at the office is a struggle. Maybe if I just set down and blank out my mind........
  2. I'll be changing the theme. If anyone has something they'd like to see let me know.
  3. On the current WOTW, I've not received any additional entries or even PMs showing interest in this theme. I guess I picked another loser. Sorry. Back to the ideas list to see what is available. If anyone has any preferences, let me know.

  5. I have gone back to what my original doctor told me to do and I am feeling so much better now it's stupid. Not too far off topic but I am interested if anyone watches Face Off or Hot Set on SciFy Channel? Face Off is the one where the people have to design and make special effects make-up and prosthetics based on a theme. They make everything from monsters to zombies to aliens. Pretty cool show. The season final is tonight. I love some of the concepts they have on the show and would like to incorporate them into the WOTW.
  6. Doesn't need to be. Sometimes simplicity is the best approach. Me too. OK, let's go with this theme for at least another week (Friday or Saturday of this week) and see if people can get their robots working. Also, if you want you can also make them cyborg farm animals (part robot, part animal).
  7. I would appreciate your input though, so chime in on the WOTW ideas thread. I always open to ideas (mostly because I don't have any original ideas anymore. )
  8. I only have one entry sent to me and it's the night to close out the entries. I guess I could just call it the winner but that hardly seems fair to that person. What does everyone want to do? Should I extend the entry time or choose a new theme and start over? I need some input from everybody. Did I come up with a stupid theme or is everyone just too busy? Let me know !
  9. Sorry everyone, things got worse before they got better. Long story and too many things to go over! I got sicker, wife got out of hospital and I had to care for her, mom went into hospital and had a pacemaker put in her heart, dad had car wreck and is all banged up, sister fell at the gym and hurt her leg and arm. When it rains, it pours ! Everything will work out OK, it just takes time. Solution? Eat more cookies ! New WOTW has been posted ! Hope you all enjoy it ! If you have questions, send me a PM and be patient I'll get back to you ASAP !

  12. Wow! That is strangely along the lines of one of the two themes I'm working on. I have narrowed it down to two and I just can't pull them together tonight. I'm just too sick and I have too many animals to feed (and they are all mad that my wife is not home to pamper them). I'll really try to have something tomorrow night. Sorry.
  13. I'm sorry it's been over a week since I was on here ! I will put something together tonight and post it. Long story, short version, my doctor wanted me to see a lung specialist so i went to see him. He prescribed me some new medicine to heap me breath better and had his assistant give me a dose in the office to show me how to use the device. It made me very sick. Blood pressure went through the roof, severe muscle cramps in my legs and arms. Now I have another respiratory infection. Not what I had envisioned for last week and my weekend. Needless to say, I'll stick to the old medication.v My wife had hip replacement surgery this morning and I just got home from the hospital. Hey, it's been a hectic week ! So without further delay, I'm going to read everyone's post and then put the theme together and get the show on the road. Thanks for being patient !!!!!! OMG ! I just realized that this is the 40th WOTW ! Wow ! Maybe we should do something special?
  14. Lol me too. I don't know how much time I'll be able to spend on it anyway. Somehow, I've been roped into doing a bit of landscape design and drafting/mapping for the County park lakes. The lakes have silted in over the last 40 years or so and they are trying to find a way to dredge them and rehabilitate the area. We are planning on making the larger one deep enough to hold fish (other than carp) and the other smaller two into outdoor labs for people to see native wetland plants/wildlife habitat. They may even bring back the paddle boats! Much fun ! Anyway, here is the past list that was compiled a page or two back. balloons insects dragons life in caves make your own family crest distorted perspective city scape forests things made from dots renewable energy what's at the end of the internet? shadows shades of gray liquid cooled ..... pick a line from a song and paint it cloud nebulae eclipse create a space station or space station orbiting a planet "2001 A Space Odyssey" like effect (when the spaceship is going across colorfull space distortion) best space pic (enter what you think is your best piece, even if it's been posted on the forum) warp drive/ hyperspace (you know like when the Enterprise goes into warp drive) Spacecraft's scraps / graveyard of ships destroyed space debris field The view from an alien prison cell of the alien sky out the window and part of the cell. We also had this suggestion....(that I like very much by the way) I also thought of a few more the other day... Robot animals (or robot insects) Celebrity Zombies (photo manipulation) Gaga Someone (as in make someone look like Lady Gaga or maybe Nicki Minaj - photo manipulation) Alien attack or Flying saucer attack (photo manipulation or original art) Things that go bump in the night ( From the Scottish Prayer - From ghoulies and ghosties. And long-leggedy beasties. And things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us! ) Original artwork. Some of these might take more than a week, but I don't think we really need to stick to it being a week long comp just because the title says "of the Week". So if you like one of these ideas, think about how long it might take to create something and let me know and we can decide on the length of the comp based on the difficulty of the theme. I'd like to get it going this weekend (at least by Monday) so let me know what you all think. Tell your friends, family and pets. Let's try to get a lot of entries!
  15. I'm going to try to get the WOTW going again if anyone is interested. I have a few ideas for themes rolling around in my head, so if you have some ideas you would like to share, please post them here. - Possum
