Wait a sec.

Relivio rilivio (in Italian I think) = Relief (in English).

Haha, forgot the most important part.

It's relivio rilivio! Or in English, a type of art style where the image looks like it's floating.

That's a clever pun, but somebody did ask whether they could interpret the theme of relief as a technique as opposed to what I had elaborated upon in my brief, which was specifically the emotion relief. This time around I was trying to flesh out the stimulus by giving a blurb at the same time.

Also I was thinking somebody might be submitting a picture of a relief, as in a mural sculpting LOL.

Does anybody know what the best way to contact Thoad is? He said he'd totally be available to do this and I'm kinda hoping he can make good on his word.

You have Cen's info right? Apparently Thoad talks to Cen outside of AG so right now that is probably your best bet.

For strop:

My disappearance was short and solely due to the fact that I work overnights on the weekend. Hence I will be judging solely on weekDAYS!

My theme: The Abyss

A vague and abstract idea that has been twisted and changed many times. The Abyss, a giant hole of emptiness and forgotten objects that no one and everyone has seen in their lifetime. I'll be judging based upon the interpretation of what "The Abyss" is, the more abstract and creative, the better! However, don't be afraid to be grounded in reality, as my judging will also be based upon how it makes sense. If it can be explained, but leave enough to give the audience some room for interpretation, it's exactly what I'll be looking for. Of course, I love Strop's way of judging so I'll be handing out brownie points to all the contestants.

The judging will be held next monday, but if I have less than 4 entries I'll push it back another week.

Ta-ta.

Dude. Another theme where I can't think of anything that isn't too vague. I thought of something, but I figured it'd be too clever for you lovers of literalness. :P

How Thoad judges his own themes is up to him. I was deliberately sticking to the literal for that theme because I wanted to present a challenge, and I guess it proved to be too much of a challenge to many.

I had such a cool image of a man in uniform bandaging a handwound on a generally tattered and f'd up body, but I just couldn't force myself to put pen to paper in order to make it. I'm still a little buttmad at myself about it :\\

Of course Hectic you can do this, I'm judging based on how creative and originally you can interpret and abyss. An abysmal dragon fits into that criteria pretty well I'd say :)

boy golly, my theme sure did get a ton of entries!

Sarcasm aside, maybe I didn't pick a very inspiring theme. If nothing comes onto the plate by the time monday rolls around, instead of extending the deadline I'll just change it. If anyone has a particular suggestion they want to do and I was too dim to notice it, bring it up and I'll choose the most popular suggestion. Otherwise I guess I'll just try again.

Hearts and kisses,

~Current Judge

I've noticed that people do more if you do give them something tangible to work with. Hence if the theme was about an object (e.g. "dragons"), you may get more entries.
