(sorry, Gringo, not aimed at you anymore, the rest of this is aimed at Peter and a few others who made suggestions) If anything, I'm sensitive to portrayals of violence against women because it is something I live with every day. I have several friends who have been raped or were victims of male-on-female violence and I can't think of anything more disgusting than having to depict something like that for this contest.

    I was hoping to get a portfolio piece out of this and I just want to reiterate what Nonie and some others have said about open, somewhat nebulous topics having the most potential. That said, some of these topic suggestions are really awesome (the power play idea sounds particularly kickass!) and I can't wait to see what you guys finally come up with!

    After careful deliberations, I have narrowed my choices down to five of which I think would be challenging and fun to do.
    ***************************************
    13. Death metal band (or Album cover for...).

    50. All seven of the three stooges

    51. A movie-style poster (think like Drew Struzan style) of the manliest movie that has ever existed---giant bosoms, chainsaws, blood and vikings (with the optional pirate or ancient jungle relic) thrown in for good measure.

    107. Armed to the Teeth

    126. Deep Space Hot Rod



    I pondered this one, "Male birthing experience", but felt this might be very difficult to portray, however, I was reminded of a certain Native American tribe where they had this strange custom. When the woman is about to have her baby, the father would lie down above her in a bunk-style bed. Strings were attached to his testicles, so the lady could tug at them every time she experienced pain...that way the father could share in the pain of the birthing experience. Needless to say, that tribe went extinct quickly as most couples could only have one child....

    That would be interesting.

    I leave to get some important things taken care of for a few hours and all fuckin' hell breaks loose!

    Both sides--alesoun and I are running this thing and we won't let anything thoroughly stupid get in as a topic on either side. That should be obvious common sense. The idea is to have fun, and more importantly, to get a decent USABLE piece of art out of all the time we put in to the challenge.

    Yes, some of the suggestions are stupid and sexist. That's what happens when you mention sex in a bunch of males with the emotional sophistication of a wombat. We simply assume most are meant to get a quick laugh, and have no real hope of getting to the top. As for the two posts I had a lot of trouble with, Tetsuo knew immediately he went over the top and apologized immediately. We all make mistakes. We move on.

    Peter, YOU I do NOT understand. After all the discussion of fun and possible sample use in all these threads, you open your shithole and out comes something that gags even me, and I have an extremely high tolerance for gross useless and insulting shit. That doesn't mean I like it, or agree with it, but that I recognize it as soon as I see it, and your bonehead suggestions crossed THAT line by a good bit. I fucking wish you would THINK--ACTUALLY THINK--for .0005 seconds before you "open your mouth."

    On behalf of alesoun and I, and all the people who are out there seriously supporting the efforts here and in other challenges around the forum, I apologize for any insult or just plain simple shit tossed into the air that offended anyone anywhere through these threads. Most of us are adults. Many are not, but have learned how to act as adults. And some were just born with their head up their asses and will never realize it has to be removed before anything decent can come out of their mouth.

    Again, everybody...my apologies.

    Now let's get this back on track with the usual insulting and childish behavior that such serious endeavors require...

    I'm wid you. Puddy Tat! I know that most of the ladies will recognise that almost all of the males here would have way too much respect for themselves and the ladies to give more than a second "wtf" to posts like that.

    The idea is that males should handle a topic given by a professional female client, and vice versa.

    Fight in a Tool Shop (nail guns and sledgehammers?)

    I don't see that many cars drawn by women so what about a race (nascar maybe?)

    Hmmm, how about a hardcore scifi/cyberpunk themed uppgrade on the usual fairytale imaginery? Fairytale character in hard scifi form/Enviroment that complements the character.

    I think enviroment with character as a sound challenge in technical sense, and this would make interesting art out of this one.

    My topic:

    - Fairytale character/s in hard scifi form/Enviroment that complements the character and mood.

    Wow, seems like the ladies are winning already... I mean, come on!

    Some of you are missing the point. Our topic should challenge the ladies to produce AWESOME art, not something crappy. I'd rather have my male butt kicked again, than winning against a pile of shit. Lets find something, that will bring the best auf of the ladies, like Nonie's "turnip murder" last time.

    I think the men didn't lose last time, I think that we won by seeing all those great pictures that the ladies did. But I think we will lose now, if we give them a topic, which they simply can't turn into something good.


    So what makes a great picture/topic? I think, a piece of art, that evokes some kind of emotion is always a good one. But evoking emotions is really hard. So that should be a challenge to the women. Hard but with great potential outcome. I think I know some ladies around here that are able to pull it off...


    My choices of the list are:
    18. Losing
    19. A Great Day to Die
    21. Self-Sacrifice
    27. On the edge
    75. Escape
    114. Three Wishes

    Guys, I believe in whatever you pick for us ladies!! I also know (at least for the guys I know) you wouldn't give us something that would make us or anyone else feel awful or insulted. o_o

    And I appreciate the heartfelt apology, kitty. I don't think you should have to make one, but that's courtesy right there.

    Challenge us like you did the last time, we'll show you fellas!! Or they will, if I'm chicken again. I thought I read "beautiful self-portrait", which would be very hard for ME to do. Personally...to bring myself up in such a way, yep. Very difficult. I'm not hinting, though, just freeloading in the thread!

    I personally think that this whole topic suggestion thread should have been in a private forum like we did with the pinup calendar. That way the trash could have been dealt with in a more civilized manner than a giant flame fest on who is what and how everyone thinks. Things like that on the internet are just recipes for the usual forum disaster.

    Also, having private topic suggestions would help keep the *cough* spies *cough* out so when we really let em have it with the topic it would be that more shocking (and no i mean fun shocking not electricity shocking).

No teams other than "Boys" and Girls"--it's a knock down free-for-all with any weapons at hand. We don't even care about the sides being even. We'll take care of that later in the polling.
    Each team will vote on the opposite team's work, and the top 5-6 from each team moves on the final poll where both sides vote to determine the "winner". So it doesn't matter how many is on each side. At least that's how it worked last time (check the Challenge forum if you want to see the threads) and I presume it will work that way again or similar this time.
