PM entries to @Jouro Wallpapers
Theme: Vector. No renders allowed*! Everything must be a brush or a cutout!
*You may use a render to add texture or effects (like a C4D render or using a regular image as a clipping mask), but the overall image must be made with vector brushes or ones you make with the pentool. If you really want a person as your center, you can use a render and put a color over it (see the banner for this thread), or use a brush of one, which can be easily found on DeviantART and other brush resource sites.
PM entries to @Expendable
Deadline: Midnight EST (GMT -5) on 31 August
Theme: Musical Inspiration. Get out your iPod and hit play. Whatever the first song is, use it as inspiration. Please provide the title of the song and the artist with your submission.
PM entries to @Velveeta Drawing
Theme: Still Life. Still life is the depiction of inanimate subject matter, most typically a small grouping of objects. So get out your bowls of fruit or vases of flowers and get to drawing!

Carue: well you're a rather good writer, pleasant, friendly and good looking
Noirre (Mod): <3 you silver-tongued devil
Shadicara: Silver? Carue can I have your tongue?
Carue: if you like
Carue: its licked Noirre's bum just now
Carue: but you can have it
Can't wait to see what you come up with!

So what are we about?
What's in this section?
Are we grammar nazis, striving for perfection?
But don't let it scare you away
We're here to help you every day
and there's always games to play anyway
At least for a time
If only to see me commit this crime of awful rhymes
Shadow is always polite and concise
Noirre will offer precise advice
Ehryn'll be constructively nice.
And I'll read posts twice,
and quote what I liked
Pirate Timelord leads a clan
and Cap's a military man
who'll post when he can.
There's so many more,
like Ioreth and cutekitty
who's poems are always both witty or gritty
Rukia and Dark with their awesome fan fiction
And if you've got the conviction,
or an affliction of addiction?
You can read romance or horror or science-fiction
Riddle Me This or the haiku thread
The caption contest or the A to Zed
Join our games or perhaps instead,
give it a crack and create something new
and we'll come through and join in too
I won't bore you more, with endless reciting
So instead we'll welcome you, to Literature and Writing.
Aww... Well, plenty of time for the next one! We have a a few good ones for this week. I'll poke @Jouro to see when we'll be able to vote on them.
I've no PM's.
I uploaded some photos that were sent to me when I harassed people for them xD
No PMs but I found two entries in the share when I looked tonight. I should have looked sooner.
