    In future competitions it will be disallowed but I don't want to enforce a rule retroactively so the lounge drawing will have to stay for this round.

    thanks elfy. I did that, and got the message my image was too big. So I resized and posted. Then realised it was blimmin' small compared to everyone else's, so I resized again and reposted today, then deleted the one I posted Saturday. Hmmm...now I don't know whether I've screwed up for the competition...darn!

    I had a busy day yesterday so didn't manage to get the poll up, so long as you have it up before I've done the poll it should be okay.

    Hi guys, sorry about the lack of compo management, things have been absolutely hectic with coursework and exams since I got back from Ireland. I'll set up a new BMC tonight for release on Saturday. Suggestions are welcome, my idea for this theme was 'newbie/stickmen style' because I thought it'd level the playing field a bit for those of us who aren't brilliant artists... e.g. votes would be swayed by comic/cultural value.

    I like the stickperson idea, it means I can draw something easier ;)

    I'll try to find time during my holiday to add a sketch, can't guarantee though :biggrin:

    Perhaps a few ideas for upcoming themes:
    Transportation - Incorporate a method of transport into your drawing.
    Country Life - Similar idea but opposite to the city life theme.
    Holiday/Vacation - Sketch a scene from your favourite/dream getaway.
    Circle - Draw using the circle tool only.
    Square - Draw using the rectangular tool only.
    Country Theme - This could be a particular scene or popular/special event from a particular country, it could also be our homelands.
    Monochrome - Draw using black and white only.

    Just a few ideas for future comps :idea:

    Okay, got a new theme up, hopefully it'll go okay! Thanks for the ideas db, I don't wanna hint what's coming up so I may or may not pick one for the next BMC. More ideas and comments are welcome :)

    Damn, another week with no enteries. Either no one can be bothered to enter or my ideas suck! Probably the latter, lol. What would people like to see for the next theme?

    If we get some more ideas I'll run a multi-option poll and use it to pick the next 2 themes. Then, if everyone is happy with the idea, we'll let the winner pick next idea in-line.

    Here are some more ideas:

    Music
    Cats
    The internet
    Knock-off famous works
