Hey, I was courteous! I want ...candy! Hehe.Originally Posted by FOZZ
and JakkaS...no candy for you...only eye-candy in the poll-thread...or maybe 3 eyed candy....haha........ha............uh...
I dunno if anyone thought about this and nixed the idea in the past, but...
Have you ever thought about going one round with the voting portion is done blind? Like where we don't know who did what concept till the end of the voting? Obviously, for the one week, people wouldnt be able to show WIPs, etc. Everyone would have to be encouraged to keep their design top secret a final was submitted, then the voting, and then we got to find out who everyone was.
Good idea but.... I can tell you at the begining which pictures belong to MikeC, Tyranx, FOZZ, Muttonhead, Matt Dixon...and many more. These guys has a personal style. I think, I and other guys too, can easily recognize artist and his work.Originally Posted by Neorepto
hmmmm...i can tell about 90% of the entries which entry was done by which artist, especially the winner potential artists...and many of the other members will feel the same....so it won't be THAT surprising at the end...
hehe, didnt see Jakkas' post, because i was reading the last post of the first page, it didnt show...
But it seems that we have the same opinion
Fozzy and Jakkas:
Oh I don't doubt it. I think I could probably pick-out any of those guys and either of you as well... However, everyone is capable of throwing a curve ball once in a while, which a blind vote might encourage. Moreover, it would encourage everyone to give 110% whether it be because they don't have their well-known name attached to their entry or because with no names attached, the newbie doesn't feel like its a lost cause competing with well known contenders.
Moreover, although there are a few of us that seem to hang out in the COW forum, looking every day week after week, and we've come to know people's styles well... not everyone who votes looks every day.
You could probably work the anonymous compete/blind vote idea into the topic for the week... like a classified, top secret bio-weapons creature theme... or an alien life form the CIA found and is trying to keep under wraps...
I agree with you FOZZ. People known each other too well.
From week #47 - Three-Eyed and Blue Fur
We can't create plant creatures for this activity? The link to newmanhyde's critter is broken, so I can't see what he/she drew, but I always figured if we drew some sort of ambulatory plant critter that was an acceptable fit for "Creature" of the week. It's not as if it's "Animal" of the week, and I would certainly classify things like the Ents from The Lord of the Rings or the crinoid from the Doctor Who episode "Seeds of Doom" as creatures.Originally Posted by Fozzybar
i dunno about the lord of rings thingies, because i didnt have the time yet to watch them all in one night which i want to do
So, there might be entries which remind of plants, but at the end it depends on how much it looks like a plant or creature or a mix of them AND how good the concept, design and execution is...
Many factors are important when it comes to deciding if the entry will do it...also my mood and time i have, that's true
Hey, I'm looking for the next topic, because I'd like to participate again. But you need to post the next topic and that usually means close the current contest. It is past 11 AM June 8th here in Los Angeles, thus it's way past deadline now! Please, new creature contest!
