    I was going to have them continue to sign in the new thread, but moving this mess makes a lot more sense. Thanks, Daes'...and don't take that admission as a suggestion that I'm going to go easy on you broads...

    Broads? Isn't that a derogatory term?
    I like it, though! Btw, anyone happens to know how it comes about?

    I mean, "broad" means wide, so what does it have to do with women?

    Well it's noteworthy that western culture did not always favor women with small hips as they do today (think Marilyn Monroe) but it may originate in the term "broadwife".

    "O.E. brad, from P.Gmc. *braithaz (cf. O.Fris. bred, O.N. breiðr, Du. breed, Ger. breit, Goth. brouþs), of unknown origin. Not found outside Gmc. languages. Slang extension to meaning "woman" (1911) may be suggestive of broad hips, but it also may trace to Amer.Eng. abroadwife, for a woman away from her husband, often a slave. Earliest use suggests immorality or coarse, low-class women."

    Ummmmmm.... Excuse my ignorance in the voting thread, I found what the polls were for. [/dumb moment]

    Count me in if there's still time (it's not September yet, right?), on the guy's side.

    gild', it's easy.

    1. Find your crayons.

    2. Do the topic as best you can.

    3. Make the boys cry.

    If it's not too late, I'd love to stub my toe in for the savages on this one.
    For the gentlemen, just to be clear.

    Thank goodness Vanity Fair is 3 votes. That had me stumped sweating.

    Please let it no be Vanity Fair, Duplicity (o.0) and Faded Beauty Still Shines (*shudder*)

    Welcome to the Battle of the Sexes II
    WAR IS DECLARED...AGAIN!

    The Second epic battle of the Sexes of 2009 is officially on. This is no-holds-barred open warfare! The Ladies will be doing a topic chosen by the Gentlemen, and vice versa. In three weeks, we will post two new threads, One for the Ladies to post their final entry, and one for the Gentlemen. At the conclusion of the competition, we will vote for the opposite sex's efforts, with the top 5-8 entries (depending on turnout and quality of entries) from each poll combined into one final poll open to everyone to determine the overall winner AND the winning sex. Trash talk is mandatory and will take place in this thread only. Since this is officially a TD, NO WIPs should be posted, but you can share with your friends and supporters for advice and crits elsewhere or by email if you want.

    OFFICIAL DEADLINE: Sunday, September 20, 2009
    at 11:59 p.m. anywhere in the world
    (which is roughly 12 hours after GMT time)

    There will be NO extensions under any circumstances!

    Topic for the Ladies to do: A Great Day to Die.

    Topic for the Gentlemen to do: Faded Beauty Still Shines


    You can execute your topic in any media you wish, with any interpretation that you wish. Just keep in mind that the "enemy" will be judging your efforts in the first polling. The wide possibility of interpretation should allow you to get a really decent portfolio piece out of this, if that's where you're coming from.

    Identify your entry at the bottom with your name (at least) so we don't have any trouble putting the polls together.

    When posting, don't go extreme with size. The absolute limit set by the Forum's Attachment Manager is no higher than 537 KB, so let's use common sense here.

    ************************************

    Notes:

    •••"A Great Day to Die!" is actually a "challenge of freedom"/battle cry made by Crazy Horse, the Great Oglala Lakota Chief and one of the leaders of the combined Lakota and Cheyenne forces that defeated five units of the US Seventh Cavalry under General George A. Custer at the Battle of Little Bighorn in June, 1876.

    Usually seen today as "A Good Day to Die" or "Today is a Good Day to Die," the statement refers to the desire to die an honorable death, as a statement of bravado in the face of insurmountable odds and probable death, or in the original Native American form, a willingness and even eagerness to give one's life in the name of one's cause. Basically, only a person at peace with themselves and their lives/beliefs/end can meaningfully make this statement.

    •••"Faded Beauty Still Shines" is pretty much self-explanatory. It obviously refers to the fact that not only all that is shiny, fresh and new can be beautiful. True beauty transcends cliché and surface polish, and exists in all things used, old, worn, or even discarded. An old woman of 90 and a forgotten 500-year-old city in ruins can possess the same, or even greater, beauty that seems so obvious in a young fashion model or a modern flashy city center. As artists, we may have an advantage here, since we accept this as something perfectly normal. Impressing the Ladies without doing a hacky sentimental piece, therefore, is going to be a real challenge with this topic.

    The battle has begun. Let the best woman/man win!

    ********************************************

    This has also been posted into the first post on page 1. Dae', can you leave this thread here for six hours or more, then move it to the Challenge Arena as a Stickee, please, at your convenience? There are two stickees there that should be un-stuck (from the last TD). Thank you...

    Alright, I'm set and ready to go. Just need to find references and I'll be on my way.

    This time I'll finish something.

    *here's half a pea till the new order arrives.
    Faded Beauty Still Shine - like her little toe nail. Losing battle.

    [Didn't know this was ready to roll, but will come to after CHOWII.]

    Is a human figure a must/main object for the pieces? I would love to study on landscapes.

    I think you can do what you wish, as long as it fits the theme.

    Posh' has it...if you can do the theme with a screwdriver and a mosquito, do it. Environments, human and non-human characters, any style/treatment. Your god is every female on this board holding a pitchfork while voting on your glorious little butt, so...get your affairs in order, please. I don't clean up messes/estates/lockers and I definitely don't do Windows...

    That's good to know Posh and Cat.
    [For those approaching this on the heartstring angle.] The Shins will probably
    be my soundtrack while working on this. I love this band.

    Why not? A landscape would stretch it, but it's not impossible. Go for it if that's what you feel. The topic can be interpreted in many ways. If you catch it right...

    I still need to make a decision about "Good Day to Die".
    Charismatic, noble hero, or half naked chick? The pose will be the same, either way.

    Okay, stupid question.....

    I just remembered something my younger brother said once to a girl I was with that made no sense but I thought might be relevant.

    "At least you haven't got a dick" said and intended as an insult...?

    Oh yeah, I went there....
