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... 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!!!
