Ohhh Colours is an interesting idea! That has a lot of potential, though it might end up resembling the "Tribes" year significantly if whoever does green does the Wolfriders and white does Go-Backs etc. Encouraging participants to use the colours in unexpected ways (ex Preservers - grey, Wolfriders - pink etc) might result in some fun submissions!

Ohhh I loved the darker ones, the Winnowill, Strongbow and Tyldak ones especially as far as I remember. The music was rather tacky IMO but I enjoyed it immensely when I was a kid :D

I absolutely love the "Seasons" idea! Joselle's Mucha imagining in 2006 was gorgeous, I'd love to see other people's take on the Seasons.

Lots of great suggestions here, I'd like to add "Movie-verse" to the mix. Dress the elves up as different movie characters/settings/tropes (Cutter as a Clint Eastwood styled cowboy in a standoff with Rayek?) or use a style particular to an era of movies (Winnowill in a film noir setting? ). This might be two different ideas or one, I'm not sure, but I'm thinking basically a remix of the Elfquest Through the Ages theme, just with movies or TV :)

I'm good with nudity as well.

Ekuar is quite different face-wise than most other EQ characters, I like that about this theme. Difficult yes, but it'll be interesting to see everyone's take on Ekuar!

@jaRF oh yeah his missing limbs are something to look out for for sure! I decided in the 11th hour that I liked the feel of my composition better when I flipped the image horizonally, which usually isn't a big thing (flip the hair/add an ornamental doo-dad/switch the stitching on the clothes a bit) but with this one it turned out to be a rather massive change hah!

Oh and on outlines, you can always colour your lineart if that makes it easier, it can remove some of the starkness of the black lines. I'm not terribly good at lineart myself, I often leave it out and just block out everything first, and in the end tighten the image with a "border" instead of proper lineart. Working with vector is very different though, I can't imagine needing to keep everything so crisp!

I know I said I'd have it finished last week, but life and Ekuar's face happened (he's so hard to draw!). Hopefully I'll be finished tomorrow :)

Oh man, that absolutely sucks. It's always risky running a challenge like this with so few participants, but it does seem like the interest has been dwindling in the past few years. It's a shame, I've really loved this project, it's been a huge part in shaping my art and approach to fandom in general. If it (and the site) does shut down, I'll be pretty devastated, but running a site/fanevent like this only for nostalgia's sake isn't really sustainable. It's only really alive if people participate.
I'll absolutely understand if you shut the site down, I'm not nearly active enough on here to in any shape or form demand that you keep it up :(

Regarding the time-frame, I've run a few fan-challenges over on Tumblr, and in my experience, people having longer to finish their submission does not mean that they actually use that time. If people only have 4 weeks they'll probably deliver the same result as if they have 10 months and a few people will always drop out. Which of course sucks as an admin, but there'll always be something that comes up, good excuses, bad excuses, lack of interest, whatever. There's not really anything any of us can do to stop that.

I made a post on the Elfquest Facebook site and on the Discord chat, maybe a few people will consider signing up. :) I'll try to finish my submission over this week and maybe I can take on another entry.

Yeah it's pretty awful! I used it a ton for both personal and work related projects and the way they shut down hosting on other sites was suuuuper unprofessional. I understand that storage like that is expensive, but at least give folks a bit of warning.

Hey Startear! Your photos aren't visible, Photobucket changed their 3rd party hosting a while back :)

I have a concept in mind, still gotta actually start drawing. I'm still in though!

EDIT: I started sketching and colortesting, and I'm confident in my concept  :)

I'm still in as well, though I haven't properly started yet! Thumbnailing is always fun though

I'd like to claim Urda, the Go-Back woman Ekuar joined with in the orgy scene. I'll probably use some Wolfriders and some other Go-Backs as background characters but I'm not sure who. Maybe Pike and Vaya or some of the unnamed characters we see in the scene

Oh my gosh I didn't anticipate this! That's hilarious though, I love it! I'll be in my thinking box, maybe something with trolls this year...

For the 12 months of one character, I don't really have a particular character in mind, as long as it's someone who's been (or could plausibly be) with most of the tribes. A character like Wavecatcher for example would exclude a lot of other characters/settings. So basically all original Wolfriders/all characters that travelled a lot would be good IMO.

I really like the Leaders one as well, it's ambiguous enough that a lot of characters could be the main focus. Chiefs would be cool too

How about "All Kids"? All characters are possible, but they have to be" kid-yfied". Or is that too far away from canon since not all characters have a kid design?

I'm still counting on submitting mine, I just don’t work well with too much time on my hands!

Alright, once upon a time I got a Wacom Intous 3 medium from Foxeye on this very forum. I've since upgraded to a tablet that better fit my screen aspect ratio so I thought the other one could fittingly find a new owner again!

Fair warning, it DOES have some scratches, it's not a new tablet, it's been used a LOT. (I'd upload a photo, but my computer is bust at the moment,  if you want to see it I can send it via mail or Facebook or tumblr)

As said, it's a Wacom Intous 3 medium, it comes with a slim pen + stand, and if I can find them, a couple of extra nibs.

I ask that you pay the shipping (PayPal preferably, unless you're from Denmark, then other options are probably easier).


Art and Elfquest / Re: Character references?
« on: April 03, 2016, 06:38:34 AM »
Elfeneyes gallery is pretty amazing yes!
On the Scroll there was a "request references" thread which was hugely helpful, people would help direct you towards issues most likely to contain what you were looking for or even post images in the thread itself. Doing something similar on here (especially for the calendar) would be neat!

I don't think there's any issue with posting Pini art on here, as long as it's not reposts of entire issues.

Berit, don't worry about it, we're all happy to help, the Calendar isn't supposed to make anyone feel left out! The resizing thing sounds doable, doing the lineart, sending it to someone for resizing, and then colouring wouldn't be make for much of a difference. 

Alternatively a collaboration might be an option? Someone doing the lineart and you colouring (or since it seems that Contrast is winning, each person doing their half of the image) I'm always game for collaborations, so if you want that give me a shout :)

I vote Contrasts, it's been on the voting polls for a decade so we should really do it at one point!

Will months get assigned again or are we going back to the old "submissions are open for everyone" way of doing it?

I'm always gonna say "heck yes" to the calendar/no calendar question but I agree, promoting it (on Facebook, DeviantArt, other EQ forums etc) should probably be done more! I feel like I always see folks going "oh I didn't even know this was a thing" when they see the published calendar.

Actually doing Contrasts after all these years would be so weird though :D
