    Hello one and all, and welcome to Febuary's Drawing Board Open!

    OK, for the benefit of any first timers, let me introduce the general concept.
    On the first of every month I'll be starting a new competition with a given theme open to each and every person who wishes to post a picture (or pictures), in any medium from pencil to pastel, from photoshop to photography proper. You must then post your entries in this thread (which will be stuck at the top of the Drawing Board).

    Your vote counts!
    Then, on the 25th of each month, the window for posting your entries closes, and I'll throw the voting open to everybody on Toon Zone, even those who haven't posted a picture, to sudmit their votes to me (and from now on, voting for your own picture isn't allowed!). The system will be familiar to those of you who have taken part in the Cafe's Avatar contests: Give your favourite piece three votes, your second favourite two votes, and your third favourite one vote.

    And the winner is..!
    Then, on the last day of the month, voting will be closed, and I will declare a winner, based on your votes, as well as two runners up. Winners will get to stick their tongues out at the other entants and gloat to their friends.

    Clear as mud?

    Good, the we'll begin... :D

    And your theme for the Febuary's Drawing Board Open is...

    *drum roll*

    Love is...

    That's right folks - "Love is...". Show us your romantic side, and showcase the classic lovers from either TV, film, or literature, or show us something more personal like your partner, or your the object of your affection!

    It can be anybody you like - from your girl/boyfriend, Han and Leia, Joker and Harley, Hamlet and Ophelia... anything, anything at all so long as it falls under the theme "Love is..."!

    So, whatcha waitin' for? Your deadline is 25th Febuary, and then the votin' starts - no time to waste... start now!!!

    I've already got an idea for my drawing (and yes, it'll be different than the last.). Quick question, though.

    February only has 28 days in it. Should that affect the voting date at all?

    Looking forward to seeing your entry! :)

    Love is.... rather uninspiring at this moment.. I think my last one sapped my romantic energy... I think I'll have to ponder this one...

    Re: ...tragic

    That's beautiful, and wonderful timing as I only caught 'Growing Pains' for the first time yesterday. Freaky.

    Lovely. A perfect picture that will be tough to beat. Colour is smooth and the colours warm and inviting - in a hollow cold bleak way! A negative one on love to kick off!

    Sorry late. Sentences bad.. :)

    Damnit Bic, thanks a lot for setting the bar so high with the VERY FIRST PICTURE!

    Seriously though, it kicks! I love it! The episode you based it on was great, and even though Robin KNEW in the end that Annie was just Clayface, she still stole his heart. Very, very sad episode, and a great picture, too.

    oh...wow....my god! You are amazing! That's simply one of the coolest, best designed, colored and imagined pictures I have ever seen! Heart-whrenching as heck as well. Just, wow. *shakes fist* darn you for doing so beautiful and emotion provoking a piece for everyone else to try and match!

    That's it. I quit. There's no way I could possibly surpass something like this.

    (That's supposed to be a compliment, by the way. :D)

    Re: ...tragic

    Hey, I might actually enter this one (unable to do the last one because of reasons I don't want you to know). Although from what I saw last time it seems I might have to go against some big "enemies". o_O

    Good god, first day of the frickin' contest and you already made half the people not even try! It is sweet in a super sweet way though.

    I have the best idea for this, and if you watch the kissing scene in this Mondays Clone High, then you'll know who I'll be doing.

    'Tis A Good Dream

    Well I'm actually straying from Dick & Babs *gasp*, or anything Batman related for that matter *gasp*. SJJ gave me the idea of something Arwen and Aragorn related (sorry Zorbrak, beat you on that thought by like a week, not like it matters :p ). But that's not what you'll see,lol, kinda. There's an original one I've been working on for a few days now that I'm stuck with, so to help me with some ideas I started some another sketch...except I liked this one more then my original idea. So here this one is until I finish my first. Arwen & Aragorn, roughly concerning him being hurt and a dream image of her being there.

    Hey Barb, those are some nice face shapes you have going on there - very nice indeed. I can't wait to see how it turns out coloured. :)

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go on and do mine, now. *VANISHES*

    I think I'll take a stab.

    Borrowing a page from Bic's, to continue on a TRAGIC theme.. :)

    [​IMG]

    Love is... not without its problems. I can't think of a better caption. -_-'

    It was originally supposed to be a picture of my fan character Kayla, and a guy named Tom in a story wrote, but the way it turned out, it can pretty much apply to any situation. He screwed up. She's pregnant. She's tired. Hurray, viewer's interpretation! =)

    I might submit another entry if I have time, but no promises.
