    Totte - oh no! What a waste of good beer! Nice start - but I thought CERN was closer to Geneva than to Bern? (The bears).

    Yes, a horrible waste, maybe the just collect it and reuse it next year, I have to ask them :P

    Haha! That's brilliant, Totte! I am now feeling inspired. I was going to suggest making plastic-y bears to get around the UV problem, but where could you use that kind of bear? Well, now we know! laugh

    All right, I think I can safely attempt to participate this time.  New job + month-long illness = I forgot I owned a computer.  Throw me in for $20 in the prize pool, too.

    And, oh look... My LBs are here waiting for me, safe and snug.  (Luci's seem to have gotten a room and have multiplied like bunnies!)

    Karibou! I was just thinking about you last night. It is good to see you here again.

    I was also thinking about Zawarkal. We haven't heard from her in way too long. I'm scared to think why, with her serious illness.

    I did a little digging...  From what I could discover on deviantart (first name) FB (last name) and Google...  Well, I think she's rendering from another of her amazing dimensions now.

    Welcome back, Karibou - looking forward to seeing your take on that pull!

    Well dug for that information on Zawarkal - I'm so sorry to read that, but I guess it was on the cards. She had such a unique artistic voice and was super-helpful too.

    crying Thank you for providing that information. I won't have to wonder anymore. So sad. Her art was amazing and stood out so much from everything else around it.

  • Thanks so much Karibou for sharing the news on Zawarkal. She's one of the old gang who I fondly remember from this contest, and she had been on my mind lately. I had been missing her vibrant and imaginative entries. She was a true creative spirit and part of what made RRRR special for me.

    (Love the Sara Connor Day idea, Totte!)

  • KaribouKaribou Posts: 1,272

    Just when I think I have the scene set, I realize I forgot the Karaoke machine.  This is a MONSTER pull...

    And I just bought soooooooooooooooo much stuff.  Omg, this sale is killing my budget.

    Welcome back, Karibou! Thank you for sharing your research on Zawarkal. It is sad news but we did expect it. I will miss her a lot. Her work was incredible and very inspiring to me.

    Totte, #2 is so cool! This theme is perfect for you. laugh

  • barbultbarbult Posts: 10,473

    @Totte, Sara Connor Day sounds like fun!

    Unofficial First Contact Day
    First Contact with an alien species occurred in July of 2032  in the wilds of southwestern Idaho when a scouting party from Quobos in the Gluon System crash-landed due to inebriation. The Quobians shared some of their potent brew with the locals, who found it to their liking. The aliens found that they also appreciated the Earth brews that were shared with them. Word got around the galaxy and every year or so, usually on July 13th (this gets confused with years not being the same everywhere) alien species from the backwaters of the galaxy land at Carl's Pride, Utah to celebrate.

    @Luci45, your stories are as good as their illustrations.

  • SaphirewildSaphirewild Posts: 3,849

    I think you all have done such great renders for the challenge so far!!!!

  • KaribouKaribou Posts: 1,272

    Luci, I have no idea how you do it!  All that detail and it's still seamless.  My current entry is being rendered in several layers -- I actually made a scene with enough stuff in it that my computer threw up when I tried to render it.

    Title: Annual Afterlife Of The Party Day

    On June 23rd -- an otherwise nondescript calendar day -- in some parts of the United States it is tradition for cities to throw enormous block parties in which guests from the Afterlife are invited to celebrate with the living.  It is by far the busiest business day for Portals-Are-Us technicians, spirit mediums, and apocalyptic prophets, rivaling even Halloween in its profitability for such entrepreneurs.

    This one almost killed me.  I'm still not entirely happy, but I've been at this for upwards of 20 hours over 2 days, so... someone stick a fork in me, I'm done!

    By my count, Luci45 has to draw 12 items! You only got 8 with your two bundles, so you are close, but no cigar, as they say. smiley She remains reigning champion of the overwhelming (for us mortals) pile of stuff.
