Re: Oct 09 Contest Discussion

I had great difficulty in finding where to vote. I am new to the forums and despite searching and searching could not find how to vote. I saw the messages about voting and the scoring etc.. but the ability to actually vote was not available. How is it done? where do you vote.?
I would appreciate an answer. I did post my try of the werewolf in the contest. But failed to vote because I could not find my way around to vote.
Any help is appreciated. Pat

You vote by posting in the Oct 09 Contest Votes Thread. I'm not sure if it's open yet.

Re: Oct 09 Contest Discussion

Comments: not included because...

I liked Johndiablo's so much, could have been #1 but has the most truly evil eyes. Best hair & hair distribution.

Cathy H, you were the only one to put those little dots on his muzzle where a wolf's whiskers come out.

pmorse, pretty terrific hair but the most demonic eyes.

Ruzzez, so handsome, but oh-so-evil.

MiningArt, what a likeable fellow you created. Could be a lumberjack or a varsity football star.

Cupcake, great mouth but those eyes are terrifying.

JanetPerry, sweet, gentle teddy bear, wouldn't hurt anyone. Like you, I bet.

Finally, after assembling all the images together I grouped them in four random piles, each image being layer blended with the others using the eyes as a constant point of reference. (Who says I don't have a life). This is my Halloween treat 4U!

Re: Oct 09 Contest Discussion

Since I can't draw anything but stick figures, this contest was a real challenge to create something that resembled truth mixed with fiction. I used a real wolf picture for the inspiration and thought I'd post it here just for grins.

Congratulations to whomever it is that wins. We all did a great job.

Janet
