    Chow #009 - A Boy, A Claus, And An Elf

    Chow #009 - A Boy, A Claus, And An Elf

    ROUND #9


    PLEASE CONSOLIDATE YOUR WIPS AND FINALS INTO YOUR FIRST POST.

    CLEARLY DESIGNATE YOUR FINAL.


    -------------------------
    DEADLINE
    SATURDAY, DECEMBER 24th – give or take.
    9 PM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME

    --------------------------

    A BOY, A CLAUS, AND AN ELF

    Timmy’s world has been destroyed.

    Timmy won the world wide competition for the much coveted trip to Santa’s Workshop. His entry, like the billions of other entries from the world over, was why he wanted peace on earth, what he’d do if he were the President of the United Nations, and why wired hair dachshunds are the best dogs in the world.

    Upon arriving at the North Pole, Timmy found that “Santa’s Workshop” was, in fact, an industrial wasteland of name brand products being mass produced by megalithic multinational merchandising subsidiary companies handed no-bid contracts by Santa, Inc. Items "crafted" in Santa’s sweatshops hadn’t seen native workers in years, the workforce having either been imported from warmer regions or, in most cases simply outsourced. The native elf population was all but forgotten, disenfranchised and living in hovels, getting drunk on eggnog and selling black market “candy” canes just to survive on the seedier edges society. Santa’s Village, the sprawling metropolis of loose morals, iffy ethics, high prices, and merrily twinkling Christmas lights, loomed over all.

    Santa had sold out.
    --------
    Chose one, two or all three characters:

    1. Santa the Sell Out
    2. Timmy, just off the plane.
    3. A displaced Elf worker.
    -------------------

    Happy Holidays everyone. Be safe, be creative, and have fun.
    ~Oreg.

    wow. 3 characters in 1 round...
    worries,worries,worries.

    -if i do 1 - that`s no good. no one here will do JUST 1, common...
    -if i do 2 - that`s no good either. if i do 2 why stop there? why didn`t i do 3?
    -if i do 3 - that`s no good also: 3 characters+ the deadline+ my day job + the missis & i "quality time" = poor executed works due to lack of hours in the day.

    plus - what will be the poll judging process?
    i mean - how could a "1 santa+1 elf" be judged appose to
    a "1 timmy+ 1 santa"?
    or "1 elf" appose to "1 santa+1 timmy+ 1 elf"?

    also - how come there always happen to be a shit-head with a camera wherever a disaster or a terrible thing is occuring?
    (damn humanity is just a huge latrine.)

    Chuck, you worry too much. and that worries me It's like a McDonald's combo pack, pick whichever combination works best for you!

    ParkerD, I actually did see the Santarchy news item on cnn, but believe it or not, *after* I had the description down for this. Besides, there's not much of a connection between Santa rioters and Santa the Sell Out other than that they wear red and are both grumpy grinchy ways of dealing with the over commercialization of the holidays. *But*, I did, briefly, think about changing the description.

    Not to confuse anyone, but I noodled the description some so it sounds better. Didn't change anything that would affect the characters. Just being anal.

    As a slave of the toy industry, I would do myself wrong NOT to do this activity. (Yes, I am in this time!)

    I think it looks great (even if it is only one character)!

    Quoted for total agreement chuckmate. Your battle angel and this one are both outstanding characters with lots of..well..er...character Santa especially. And in the execution of both of them there is really a confidence of technique coming through.

    Chuck, mate. -- great entry! You are indeed improving at a stellar pace! Keep up the awesome work. =)

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to finish my entry, so I'm going to remove it from the thread.

    Merry Christmas, to everyone who celebrates!
