  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 gett
  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 !
  10. WOTW # 40 Style- Semi-Realistic, Robotic Barnyard WOTW Comp Rules: All submissions must be created in Paint.net with the exception of renders and stock photos when allowed. Minimum size is 800 X 600. There is no maximum size, but keep in mind that people will want to look at your image and if it takes too long to load, they may not look at it. Please try to make your image in the proportion of a Wallpaper, because this is a Wallpaper comp. (Duh!) NO PLACEHOLDERS Do not post an entry until it is a finished product. NO WIPS ! Obviously you cannot use the stocks or renders as your entire su

  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
  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 compi
  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
  16. Since there have only been two people respond to this idea, let's try something else. Here are some of the suggestions that have been made from the WOTW and SAC threads. Do any of these interest anyone? 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 Idea - space station orbiting a planet "2001 A Space Odyssey" li
  17. Hi, back again. Maybe I can get the next round started soon. Be thinking "Timeline", as in Facebook Timeline. Make an image that you would like to have on your Facebook page as your Timeline image (or one for a friend, if they ask really nice and maybe bring chocolate......) I'll check back in when I can and see if anyone is interested.......or irritated........or something.......

  19. Really nice stuff ! You are a real artist ! Your Robo Cop is AWESOME !!!!! You Ironman is even MORE AWESOME !!!!!! Welcome to the forum. It's a pleasure to see you on here.
  20. Thank you very much. I appreciate when someone is specific about what pieces they like. It helps me to keep my focus. I too adore Drew. There is much to say about that topic but I never know when my wife might read this post so silence is the better part of valor. I'm so glad you like the hummingbird and the fisherman. I really enjoy doing the photo manips. There are just so many things possible when you think about it. I wish I had more time to explore this area. If you get a chance take a look at this link FreakingNews I run a photo manip comp from time to time in the Competition Section of
  21. I agree with Welshie, once you start it you better stick around and keep it going. You get my vote if you're willing to step up and keep it running. I think it's an important comp that needs to be running every week or every two weeks. It was the reason I got into the comps in the first place. I would like to see it run in the same format as it did in the past, but that is really up to you to decide.
  22. Poll is finally up. Sorry for the long delay ! Life happens. Enjoy and GO VOTE !!!!!
  23. I am really liking these ideas. Let us try to formulate an idea that I can put into action for a comp. Additional ideas anyone? Limitations/constraints? I see this as a very flexible and open idea for a comp. Let's refine the ideas a little and we can go with it. Sorry for the delay on getting the comp posted to the poll. It has been a very bad week. Life happens and sometimes takes us to places we really don't want to go. Times like these give us limited choices and mine was to spend it with family.
  24. If anyone has any ideas for the next round (or any round) of the WOTW, please post it here !!!!!! :D :D
  25. UPDATE: I have added the remaining image I was waiting for. I will leave them entries up for a day or two and then post them in the poll. Thanks to everyone who entered !
