    You're not getting enough entries now and you want to split it up?

     

    I don't think that's gonna work.

     

     

    I know, it does seem like Wonderland logic when put that way. My thinking was that beginners might be intimidated by complex objects and might respond to a simpler contest, while more advanced users might welcome a challenge.

     

    But yeah, if not enough people enter anyway....

     


  2. @Pixey thank you! It gave me an excuse to listen to some jazz standards...not that I ever need an excuse for that. ;) And yes, the Lion and I are Cheesheads to the core! In fact, we're moving close to Green Bay (he's from the area originally).

     

    @Seerose, thank you! Funny how I got those colors: after getting the models adjusted to my liking and getting the background to resemble a loft-type apartment, I put a layer of deep blue over the top and then puttered around with the blending modes. I loved the effect I got with Xor, but it wasn't blue enough for my purposes--so another layer of deep blue set at "Normal" did the trick.

     

    @lynxster4, that was exactly my intention! The term Poison Blue just kinda begged for it, y'know? Thank you!

  3. The Poison Blue was a legend, and so was Eddie Barber....

    This piece has its origins, of all places, in something I read about the way bottles of rodent poisons etc. used to be sold. They were ridged glass usually in a pretty shade of cobalt blue, and I commented I would have trouble not calling it "Poison Blue" from here on out. Next thing I know, I'm writing a short little piece about a musician from Saint Paul's Rondo Neighborhood and his supernatural trumpet...yeah. The Lion and I were discussing expanding this into an animated short, but that's gonna have to wait because we're getting ready to move from Saint Paul back to our home state of Wisconsin. As it stands, it's a love letter to an amazing city.
