I love the predator and prey idea, as it is a fairly open theme. Of course, I can't contribute this year, but that one would be mighty interesting.

I am about to put up the poll, so get ready to vote.  :score10

I did want to mention that the more I looked at it the more mine and Cat's theme ideas, predator and prey/pairings seemed similar, so I am going to blend them together under "pairings", with predator and prey being one of the possible choices you can use when working on this theme (providing it is chosen).

I feel that these two themes are roughly the same concept with pairings limiting you to only two characters, which I believe is a benefit this year as it seems many of you have little or almost no time to get an entry ready.

I just think it would be silly to divide the vote between two similar concepts.

Dreamscapes will also be a new addition to the poll. This theme is an interesting concept that will allow the artist to explore the possibly un-canon dreams of canon characters. It's so naughty, I just love it.

Now please take the time to vote, the poll will end on June 29th, which gives everyone plenty of time to choose which theme they like best.

Emotive sounds great. That would be an interesting calendar, covering the gamut: happy, sad, angry, scared, etc, all played on a character's face. Colors can be used to express emotions too.

Oh great, Maggie! Actually I find both new themes very inspiring, so it was a hard choice. As an idea popped into my head immediately, I voted for dreamscapes.
I am afraid that would not be naughty, though. ;)

Heh...I meant naughty as in, some non-canon dreams but regular naughty is fine with me too.  ;D

AHHHH! Too little too late but I think this counts for the next calendar, I'm gonna put Emotive Portraits on the next ballot for sure.  ;D

Haha Maggie, I think your naughty talk actually gave a me a nice naughty idea, would be canon, though.
If I got to enter two entries, that would be something!
Is that still possible, by the way?

Oooh, can't wait to see what you come up with if this theme is the one we go with. As for entries, I think you could send in three? Is that correct? I'll have to double check but I know two is fine for sure.

 :o This is really a close call!
But no matter what theme gets chosen, the new ideas could still be realized in another year.
Truly creative input this year!

So many nice ideas! I voted, but I don't really have a preference, so anything goes!

Ok, Dreamscapes is our theme but please do not get started on artwork yet, there are going to be a few rules/restrictions to be posted in a day or so along with any other details and when the deadline for artwork will be.

I'm pretty excited though, this theme is going to be fun.

I love that Contrasts is never chosen. Dreamscapes is a nice theme though, I voted for it as well. Will we have a brainstorm thread this year? (also hi! I'm still alive)

Hello!
Wellcome back Wildfire!

Why did you love, that contrasts is never chosen?
But it is really funny by the way - now that I think of it.

Haha, it's just a bit ironic. We all love the theme, but it always been pushed to "next year". I wonder if we'll ever actually pick it xD
