I've uploaded my entry. Glad I could make it on time xD
I really have no idea how this "Challenges" thing works because I haven't been on theO for months xD But I doubt you'd have to announce the winners on the same day. Take your time to look through the entries :) It's always better to take more time to review what you have and judge carefully.

lol..i wouldnt even know how to make the deadline longer..lol..im such a computer noob..:)
oh and yeah hey!long time no written!
glad to see you in action!
ohh the judgeing..yeah it will deffinatly be creativity or how you promote the pencil..AND how u use it..i dont want to make myself pencil expert couse im not...but there are few things i know so..i will also judge the pencil technic...is it coloured..sketched..?how..
and most of all..one should have fun!!!!
looking forward to the entry..i think the deadline is in the 2nd of march.(thanx God i have no work that day).do i have to pronounce the winner on the same day>??there are so many..i will have to ask for help..ive never done challenges before so...can it be done little bit later?a day or so...i still need to comment all of them and yeah..:P
Whoa hi there vampire kiss! :D I'm sorry for being absent for such a long time.
lol I realise the deadline for this is tomorrow, but I can spend a couple of hours to conjure up something with decent effort. After all, I wouldn't want to turn down your generous offer :)
I'm already working on it so I don't think there's a need to request for a deadline extension. I'll upload it ASAP.
Btw how are you going to judge the entries? Is it all about technical skills or creativity as well? lol I'm just asking out of curiosity because anyone can pretty much draw anything they want and insert a random pencil at a random corner to fulfil the criteria, or worse, take an existing piece of work that wasn't meant for the contest, draw a pencil somewhere in the pic and call it an entry. But the whole point is to promote pencils so I'm sure creativity is a required aspect here.

Otaku Legend | Posted 02/07/10 | Reply
yes..coal was mother of pencils...its just natural..:P
at least i hope i have understood correctly in my mind what charcoal is...
So charcoal is okay, then? I have a cute idea for a charcoal drawing.
Otakuite++ | Posted 02/05/10 | Reply

Otaku Legend | Posted 02/05/10 | Reply

throwing u back? - eh not really - but i noticed that my drawings take longer to submit ^^' - maybe thats whats happening?
yeaah...but u dont colo in pencil...its just a tool to put on lines and do the rest with pc...
gosh...tried to submit a drawing but the page throws me back to the beggining of submit...has this ever happened to you?
Kawaii Princiess (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 02/03/10 | Reply
The reason I mostly do digital art is because somehow I always seem to stuff up the inking stage. I know that's not a pencil but you get my point. I might enter.
Lazy Chocobikies (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 02/02/10 | Reply
hmmm - back to pencil - hey i always draw in pencil - digital just goes over :P
but sounds interesting so i think i'll try too
Otaku Legend | Posted 02/02/10 | Reply

I like your Style Nomad..Im a Tradional artist as well..And i love it way better then digital art..
Good things comes 2 those who wait, The things you lost will always replace something better..

This sounds like fun! And I whole heartedly agree with you: traditional art is becoming a thing of the past. I will admit that the computer allows us to save money while still making fantastic art (saving money by not buying supplies). But still...nothing feels better than a good ol' pencil in your hand. :D
Wow, a contest dedicated to my medium of choice. :) It's been a long time since I've gone only pencil but I'll sure try.
Scarecrow (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 02/02/10 | Reply
Wut the? I didn't mean to reply to that person but i guess i did. anywho, I accept.
Ha ha! finaly, something without didgital art~~! I'm so happy!!
I'll give it a try!
But of course I accept. Like Sasoriofredsand, pencil art is all I do! I guess I can learn to use the digital art programs but I like the old fashion way much better. Count me in.

Sounds Fun! I suppose I'll join!
I'm all over this one.
The Turning Tide (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 02/02/10 | Reply
since i've got my tablet for christmas, I've abandoned my pencil....
pencil:you left me out in the cold!
me:c'mon I want to start using you again!
pencil:Well maybe I don't wanna be used!
It may be a while....she's mad at me....*sweatdrop* I'm in, I've been wanting to draw FFX fanart lately

This is freaking awesome. I'll do this~
Back to the roots - pencil style. Awesome challenge. I might enter this challenge
waaw!! great challenge!! I wanna join...
but, my pencil skill was bad... there's always a lot of 'ex-delete' in the picture... haha!! but I'll do my best...
err... only 1 problem that I have now... my scanner has been broken... don't know when I can get the new... I wish I get it before the deadline of this challenge, so that I can submit my work ...
I smiled when I got this challenge, you've definitely hit me right on. I just transitioned to full digital last month so I guess going back to traditional is a great idea (and a break). ^^ I take the challenge!
Ah... at least my mechanical pencil is still surviving in my pencil box. :p
cool!cant wait to see what u have in mind!
youre very much welcome to participate!
``show your love for traditional art!``
Hey you..Awww cool..Well usuall i dont participate in Challanges but since this one sounds so cool and simple i'm gonna do it for sure...I already have a character in mind..I have one question thou.
I'll Pm you then..^^
