Almost no one entered last month either... I think their is just... Lack of interest in the contest... I dunno... I may stop hosting them!

No! I'm going to enter! I'm just lazy!

Actually.... if no one else enters, that raises my chances of winning. \o.o/

Kidding. By no means do I want to be the only contestant. Bring on the competition!

*makes mental note to find pencil sharpener*

Well I know their are still a few faithful supporters of the contest. But most have moved on and Jaden Mental's Original character contest has really taken the show I think.

I think Maybe it would be better if we just started up a lineart bin here on CAA. We would include all of the previous linearts from previous months contests and then as artist wanted they could add lineart to the bin for other artists to color. I think many artists who were just starting to practice their coloring skills here on CAA would find it VERY helpful!

what do you guys think?

Actually, a coloring page bin would be nice. I'm not much for competition & don't really have a vision for each month's page. Though I do enjoy seeing other's entries.

And it would be fun for it to be a mix of artists' line art & anime coloring pages.

XDDDD Shadowcat, that's priceless! XDDD

So is this a coloring contest AND a caption game? :3

XD awesome conversation Shadowcat. And I loved the colors you used...

whose dissing the coloring contest? I'm definitely not. I would not have hosted them for a year if I didn't care about them.

But their have been like NO entries the past couple months. And it just keeps getting worse every month. I guess I'm just getting discouraged but I don't think we can ever really revive them.

Nice entry, ShadowCat! I liked your captions.

Well, here's my entry.

Guy: Hey, they call it "extreme spoons" for a reason.
Girl: So why were we playing with forks?

wah! I haven't been around CAA hardly at all this month. :(
I won't be able to participate this month in either contest, even though I'd really like to. I'm starting the final projects for my summer classes, and have next to no free-time. ;_;

I'll be back in full force next month, though - *evil laugh*


Though, maybe a sort of advert campaign might not be ill-advised. Now that we can have image signatures again, maybe a banner for the contest in participant's signatures, as well as spreading the word in other places where members/new recruits might find out and want to join - like deviantArt.

Hello! Hehe, for those that didn't see my intro thread.. I'm new! Kinda. :lol:

Woo, anyway.. I saw Ashley's post about the winners of last month's coloring contest on the front page, and teh link to this month's contest.. and I loved the line art! So.. I figured I'd give it a try. ^^;

Tis probably my third or fourth time coloring line art, but I've been using photoshop for quite a while.

Heh, once I got started I couldn't stop.. I worked on it until about.. 1am or so.. then I actually stayed up past 3am messing with it! Mainly tweaking stuff that no one would possibly ever notice! Woo! :D ..I can't help it. T__T

Anyway.. here it be. Kinda cel-shaded, kinda not.. hehe. :forehead:

Awesome job, Artshapedbox! ^_^ I loved the caption! :3 and you did a great job with their outfits XD! This is truly a great coloring job! the background is really nifty too.
XD I stay up that late or later working on artwork...I feel your pain.

just for fun here is my version, but I am not entering.

I am also uploading some fun tshirt designs that I made based off of this drawing XD

Rabbit rodeo... I should have guessed!! :lol: I love the shirt designs, by the way! :D

And thanks again ~ I'm very glad you like my coloring efforts! Hehe, any more compliments and I might blush, though. :3 ..yea, doesn't take much.. :shake:

Tehe, but it did feel good to get into something enough that I forsook sleep to work on it! xD It had been a while.. :)

And.. way past my bed time now.. nighty night, CAA! *waves* ^__^
