I was going to mention that, but if you look at it, it does work out he just has a really long little finger.

I didn't want to snipe it out because it's such fantastic work, but I suppose it ought to have been said.

It's not sniping, it's constructive criticism. It's before the deadline so I hope we're helping his work.

Heh.. I was actually thinking of a way of re-wording that as I was typing it, got distracted and posted anyway.

I'm not critisizing mate, it's just a turn of phrase.

I think we have a winner! I'm well impressed by that! Simple but damn well effective. And a lovely modest delivery.

Aye the background I forget...although its more of a current running event, it does count. And yes I received 3rd prize in the draw the OM's contest...but no one has ever used one of mine....:(

I am not the greatest artist in the world but since I want a shot at a some trinket. Perhaps my humor will get me a bone. Doesn't hurt to try.

Pirate: Hawkings
Ocean of Play: Viridian


Title: "Viridian the Parrot has landed."

This one didn't come out quite the way it looked before I shrank it to 150x150 but times running out. I included the original for comparison.


Title: "Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's Original Painting of Apollo and Diana. He later was forced to repaint it in the more traditional style of the time.
----------------------------------------
Hawkings
Fleet Officer of Silver Dragons
Citizen of Meridian

Apollo wrote, "Hawkings has changed my life. ;)"

I think it's time for another trip to Adobe... All of these entries are outstanding, I didn't expect such competition to fire off. XB

Re-Entry:



As ye can see, I've made it spiffier. <3

Err... My best PP work? Maybe...

Criticism (And comments) APPRECIATED. :)

Edit: ArgleBargle pointed out my mistake... Er. :D Spelling is not my strong point. ;)
