    Masque v Ilaekae -- FIGHT!

    Ladies and gentlemen and all ships at sea!

    In a stunning turn of events, two masters of geriatric graphic goodness WILL be duking it out right here on our stage after all!

    Forced to take a bye on his original Gods at War Thunderdome matchup, Masque was initially saddened but philosophical:
    "I coulda been a contender!"

    But after dodging the Keystones and returning once again to the safe haven of our little village, Ilaekae wouldn't give up:
    "You're...going...down...Bubba... "

    So now, in a gesture of unequaled magnanimity, Masque has agreed to a special event, a one-on-one showdown, the side-bet of side-bets, mano a mano, Archy takes on Mehitabel (guess which one's the cockroach!) --

    The Gods at War: Duel of the Titans!

    Masque v Ilaekae -- FIGHT!

    Friday, February 16, 2007, 6 a.m., CST (USA) (or whenever we manage to get around to it )
    Right here in the Concept Art dot Org Thunderdome Challenge Arena!

    Admission free, but donations of Ensure will be appreciated.

    Time and date subject to puss-outs. Management not responsible for anticipation refunds.

    archie is the cockroach mehitable is, if I remember correctly the cat,


    Pulls up a chair, pours coffee and prepares to watch in awe as two heroes duke it out.

    prepares sponge baths , and pacemaker jolts fo the mighty titans

    chaos

    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    Your ass is mine, you geriatric wannabe, but it won't be thursday morning. I just got a call from the doctor moving my scheduled stress test from next Monday to 7am Thursday morning, which cuts me off at the knees time-wise. Can we move the deadline to Friday?

    Kind of gives you some idea of why I was so pissed off with the time it took to sort out all the variations in the judge's set-up for the thunderdome, don't it?





    ...and I don't care if I'm archie or mehitable...as long as Betty and the brunette one show up, too...

    uh, Betty is the brunette. old cat must be shedding grey matter like dandruff.

    everybody knows Wilma's got red hair (WOOT!)\


    EDIT & HEADS UP**************
    THIS IS NOT A PUSSOUT! My little corner of the planet is currently experiencing a typical New England blizzard -- snow, wind, sleet, freezing rain, the whole frigid ball o' earwax

    not unusually, such storms 'cause widepsread power outtages that can last for days or more (thank you PSNH, and why am i still payin' for Seabrook, you smackturds?!?).

    so, if i seem to have fallen over the edge of the world (not easy to find, but it's there), it's likely because i've been deprived of computer go-juice. i will pick this up on the other side of "Let there be light!" if such does occur.

    No prob, Bro... Same thing here...but it's a few thousand pounds of ice on the electric and phone lines. We blew everything out three times last night and there's more coming...which is probably why we have four kero lanterns and two handheld candle lanterns out in the open all over the house. If the terlet was 'lectric, I'd be crappin' in the woods...

    ...and Melody (Melonie?) is the redhead. What the hell are you readin'?

    assumption of Ilaekae's thinking:
    Archie -> Betty (blonde) & Veronica (Brunette)

    masque's intentionally bent take on above:
    Betty (brunette) Rubble and Wilma (redhead) Flintstone (and an oblique ref to the funniest dialog ever written in the eight year history of Red Dwarf!)

    Reading? Reading!?

    "Print is dead."
    -- Egon, Ghostbusters

    Amazing what six years diff can make, eh?

    My my, aren't we tossin' droll around now? Hold onto your shorts, Daddy Doodler...I'm comin in later today if things hold up. The power's been out here for 11 of the last 14 hours, which is not what I call prime workin' conditions.

    The vector and color crap is done, but I still have to make the transfers and touch-ups in PS. If there's no more power problems, it should take me about 7 hours.

    How come you get snow and you still have power, and I just get some fuckin' slush and even the streetcar lines are down? Fuck...

    i'm gonna post on time, if'n you don't mind. in thirty years of commercial art, never missed a deadline (by my own fault, at least), -- no sense breaklin' the string.

    but don't peek! one look at my gargantuan godly goodness and you won't be able to take yer eyes offin' the screen, you'll never get those layers flattened!

    peace be with you, cat-man. as in

    is this thing on?
    OK
    drum roll , please.


    LAYDEEZ AND GENNULMMUN!
    This is it, the matchup of the century, two Titans of the last century, toe to toe, head to head, Wacom to mouse...
    bigger than Ali v Forman
    bigger than Bobby v Billie Jean
    bigger than a breadbox v a brick outhouse...

    The Duel of the Titans!
    Masque v Ilaekae!


    and in this corner, weighing quite a few more stone than he oughtta, but with a prostrate smooth as a baby's butt and low HDLP......

    the one, the ONLY (thank GOD! )...

    masque!
    __________________________________________________ _______________

    Valkyrie Ascending

    Masque v Ilaekae -- FIGHT!

    She found him on the field of battle, in the thin fog and damp grey stillness of
    the morning, still clinging weakly to life amid the mire and blood and remains
    of his foes. She gathered him into her arms, held him as she often did beside
    their hearth.

    He had been a good husband, a good father, but a magnificent warrior. Five
    enemies dead at his hand; Father Wotan must surely reward such valor!
    Surely he would send a Valkyrie for this man she loved, that he may live on
    in glorious Valhalla!

    She felt his last breath, passing over and through her like the clean, clear
    breezes of the fjords, but, strangely, with a tang of regret, that pulled at her
    heart like nothing ever had, and might never again.

    ______________________________________________

    [thunderous applause]


    and in the other corner.....


    [crickets chirping]


    [crickets still chirping]


    [crickets head out to score a double Capuccino]


    patience folks, it'll be worth the wait!




    hear me, cat-man. make it worth the good peepuls' wait!

    So Masque...it looks like you put a portrait of Ilaekae in your painting...

    Whats that all about?

    I mean sure...he's old enough to have created the world...but I question the intelligence of casting your opponent as "God" no matter how insanely talented he is.

    Beautiful piece, Hippy...

    Progress report: Your god is obviously fucking me here and I don't take kindly to it. Art's done except for conversion to jpeg, but can't post for another couple of hours. I'm sneaking this message in before they cut my DSL off again...the electric problems we've been having are due to ice fucking up some transformers. I now have dependable power, but when I checked with my server, they told me they would go off line again for my area a bit before six pm my time...which is in a couple of minutes. I'm hoping this gets posted in time.. They have to replace an additional transformer 60 miles from here, which is where I get my service. As soon as it's up and running, I'll post.

    Your's is great...BUT...mine is so fuckin' much better you're going to shit your pants...it's a classic vector vs traditional paint...nyahh nyahh...

    See you in a few hours if all goes well...sorry for the fuckin' delays...

    Friggin shweeet piece dood. Stupid question from an ignorant mind, but, who is fighting who here (in the piece)?

    I say you get bonus points 'caus Illy's now at an advantage for seeing the opposition's strategy. Probably putting extra tweaks on it right now, aren't we, Ila?

    fighting's over, Azrael, at least for this battle in the (implied) wider war. now it's all about picking up the pieces.

    thanks for the BP, but in my book, this mini side-bet TD is more about showin' off than whuppin' ass, despite all the splashy trash being traded. extra tweaks are fine by me.

    Guess who's DSL went back on line this morning about 6:30? I got tired of waiting and fell asleep. The entry is below...with a lot of shit that could still be done to it, but fuck it. I'm a little tired of working on it. Masque, I hope I'm not too big of a disappointment.

    The final Battle between Ahura Mazda (The Creator and God of light) and Anro-Mainyus (The living epitome of evil bought into existence by humanity's mis-use of free will)


    Masque v Ilaekae -- FIGHT!

    These are the two primaries (Deity and Demon) of the religion now called Zoroastrianism. It was founded by Zarathustra sometime between 1400 and 1200 B.C. in ancient Persia, and is the oldest monotheistic religion of any kind known and the first based on "revealed" scripture. It is the first religion to preach that man had a free will, and that only he was capable of bringing evil into existence. Ahura Mazda is the ultimate source deity/creator for all western religions now in existence, and the great horned Demon Anro-Mianyus is the prototype for all the images of the modern devil.

    The religion still flourishes, especially among the Parsi of India.

    The scene depicts the two battling to the death "at the end of time," a fight won by Ahura Mazda.

    No position or belief, whether religious, political or social, is valid if one has to lie to support it.--Alj Mary

    Ironically, the concept of SIMPLICITY is most often misunderstood by simple-minded people. --Alj Mary
