WOTW Theme Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I've been looking in the archieves, nice stuff.

It takes me forever to crank out create the smaller images in the sig and banner compititions. How much time do we get for wallpaper? :P

Love to give it a try.

Edit...Duh. Silly me. WOTW.

Still love to try.

Doughty, I find it harder to work on the smaller sigs than a large canvas. Generally I work on 4 times larger than the finished size but of course this has to take into account the computer's ability to handle such a large image. That then makes the rendering for some effects painfully slow. I generally went off & did other things like the washing up, having a cigarette (gave that up over a year ago) while I waited. I'd love to see you in this comp too.

I had an idea - my generation - as in I am a baby boomer, so I was a little school kid in the 60s, watched Neil Armstrong walk on the moon & the first computer was as big as house (nearly but it actually had a steering wheel!), women were not allowed to enter a public bar in a hotel here & panty hose replaced the stockings. We had Buddy Holly, Elvis, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones (what the heck - we had all the good stuff ;) )

Barbieq, some of the archived wallpaper is outstanding. I was just wondering if I had enough creativeness to fill a large area.

Glad that you quit smoking. I quit the latter part of '06. Still like the smell of tobacco though, but I'd rather eat ice-cream than have a smoke.

The 60's is good. How about in the style of 60's art? Bold and bright.

You will fill it trust me. You just don't know how good your work is :)

I agree on the tobacco & ice cream as well as the bold & bright art.

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?

maybe...as something special, make the theme "wallpaper." xD

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.

Yeah - the Possum is back :) Aren't you the one that shouldn't be angered/annoyed :lol:

I am away for the next 6 weeks to Florida, so will be PDN-free during that time ....... unless I buy a new Lappy. Hmm... - decisions, decisions. Being PDN-free for that length of time is scary :mrred:

Do hope you settle down with the new meds - sometimes which can be a pain to get right :redeyes:

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. :smile::D Solution? Eat more cookies ! :cookie-chocolate::cookie::cookie-chocolate::cookie::lol:

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 !

Possum, I remember a similar horror stretch earlier this year. Glad you are back & things are getting back on track for you.

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.

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.

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

I've got to admit I couldn't find my muse for the theme. Sorry Possum :unimpressed:

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........
