    Yeah - a good Thanksgiving to all our colonial cousins plus a belated happy birthday for that music guy. As the quizmaster always asks in the best programs, what would you do with all that money?

    Bonus Game Announcement

    This was not an easy game to judge! I promised a gift certificate for "the best-looking banquet," but I was tempted to award everybody a prize... but then I looked in my wallet. So...

    As much fun as it would be to chow down with the Stones, the banquet itself was a bit too eclectic for my tastes.

    While the TV dinners hearken back to the month's overall theme - somebody's making a sacrifice so his or her family can have something nice for Thanksgiving - they aren't really "good-looking."

    And as beautiful as the display is - in my opinion, the best render technically - the all-chocolate table lacks a few courses to count as a banquet.

    So, the first render submitted takes the prize. (Besides, it had beer and pizza!) Lord Ganthor, congratulations and please PM me with the email address you use at Daz3D.

    Thanks everybody. It was a lot of fun, if not a bit ironic. Thanksgiving was never much of a big holiday around my house growing up and my family has just sort of followed the tradition of just sort of shrugging it off. I even don't like turkey...unless it's free range (wild)...and cooked outside over an open fire...over good, aged hickory wood...great...now I gotta go dig a fire pit in the backyard...

    funny you say that, yesterday at the family dinner thing we were talking about our best turkey memories, mine was one year my mother-in-laws oven broke down 2 days before Thanksgiving, she couldn't get it fixed in time and since she lived in warm weather she fired up the ol' BBQ and BBQed the bird, it was the best ever, plus we had a friend we would get fresh from the farm turkeys too so it was off the hook good.

    Hey Jeeperz...this is for you. I will be donation my Santa's Workshop again this year for the December Winter Wonderland challenge. But I will ALSO be donating my department store Santa display where the kids come see him. It has the platform with a rail around it, his chair, rug and table, the sign and a rough looking dept store tree with a bottom cover. All the parts are seperate and can be moved around or used in other scenes. Here are a few quick renders. (The bad Santa does NOT come with the set!)

    that looks really cool music, I love it. Thanks. Yes December is right around the corner and I have some fun planned for next month, just a quick teaser, I have 15 people donating next month several published artists as well as some of our wonderful fellow freebie challenge/contest people are going to be giving prizes away for next month. I will also be doing the 1-hour snowman mini render contest that will be starting on the 1st as well.

    I can afford it - we voted to accept the new contract, so I don't need to worry about money for a few months at least.

    (That's the first time I've bought one of the new-fangled GCs. LG, please let me know if you didn't get it.)


    And I have a different mini-game picked out for the next time I host... :)

    Oh, yes...

    We have only four entries so far this month. I know November's a slow month, but the theme can't be that difficult... can it? Interpret it as widely as you want...

    We also have only two judges: Dollygirl and Music...

    I would like to see some new blood in judges but will be a back-up if no one else volunteers Rob. This month seems to have been one of the slowest on record, maybe we'll get some last minute ones in.

    Thanks, jeeperz. I'll keep you in mind if nobody else steps up to the plate.

    Hmm, well, I've been really busy of late with NaNoWriMo and, though I'd like to get an entry in, I don't know if I will. I mean, I was gonna enter the feast, but never got around to it.
    So I guess I'd happy to judge. If you need someone. :) Even if I enter, I get a feeling picking the winners will be a no-brainer.

    Yes, it does... Thank you, assassin_21.

    And we're going to need at least one more entry in order to give away everything that's been promised...

    Been working slowly but annoying crash headaches on other renders has slowed down my work on this. The other thing I wonder is if people aren't thinking that broad on the theme. I know I personally have been leaning more serious minded with the theme which is causing it's own slowdown on brainstorming.

    I have something in the works. It's been giving me a headache trying to fit a couple of things together; but & think I've got the worst of it solved.

    That's quite possible, and it's why I posted the NAE that I did. (The one where the sailor's looking at the graduation photo from home - he's making a sacrifice that nobody outside the family will ever know.) Dollygirl's "The Suffragist" and LG's entry are atypical looks at the theme, as well.

    And don't forget that, even if you want to do a military render, you don't need to show a member of an identifiable military unit...
