    Twins- wonderful! My husband has identical twin brothers. I don't get that though, they are so easy to tell apart. :) What do you have, boys, girls, both? Bet you have fun on Mother's Day!

    I'm still around. Still on story 1, render 1. The vendors better appreciate this contest because I had to buy an item to be able to finish the story that I came up with!

    I'll probably only get to do one story, but having fun again. That's the most important thing :) I am really enjoying reading the stories and laughing at what people have to put together. (I've got a jet ski, a victorian maid outfit-and no I didn't put her on a jetski, lol)

    I am amazed I haven't pulled any of Lisa or Ken's stuff- I have all of it. You'd think I'd get a bird or a plant eventually. Instead, I got Merlin's trees! Had to laugh at that. And agree- surprised I haven't gotten Jack's stuff either.

    I'm afraid to make a second pull -- it's frankly amazing I finished three renders this month already! My twins turned 10 last week, so I had to bake 5 dozen cookies and a birthday cake, plus gift wrapping -- and that doesn't even include the mountain of baking and wrapping I should be doing for Christmas. Ack!

    I'm with you on the Ken/Lisa/Jack sets. Have pretty much all of it, and yet I haven't pulled any of them in a long while! Funny how the random pulls go, hey? I tremendously enjoy pulling items that haven't seen the light of day in years. :-)
    ...yeah, my pull had some very interesting items in it.

    ...and yes, it had one of Jack's sets in it.

    One of each. :-) They are my little miracles. I spent 8 weeks in the hospital while pregnant because I was in preterm labor and we knew my son was going to be born with a heart defect. They came about 5 weeks early, but Ev had his heart surgery at 2 days old and they were both (amazingly!) home before Christmas. You'd never know they were such tiny, fragile things a decade ago, because they're both tall and strong and healthy as can be today! I'm very blessed.

    I'm always astonished at the sheer quantity of "Jack sets," because they are always so high-quality. I've often wondered if he has elves working in a hidden North Pole office, happily making 3D content and drinking hot cocoa... Or maybe I've just seen too many kids' Christmas specials this week...

    Great stuff already!

    I have just drawn my first set of 8, but I got two Ron's Brushes sets. Do I need to redraw or are those valid items for the RRRR draw?

    They are valid, but if they are "unusable" (you cannot use them) it's a redraw.

    I have Photoshop, so they should be usable. I now realize that I really only drew one valid Ron's brushes item (a bundle), because my product list listed the bundle and the individual items as separate line items, and I drew both. So I will keep the brush bundle on my list and draw one more item to replace the brush that was part of the bundle anyway. Thanks for the rule clarification.

    I'm having to fix the newspaper though, for some reason the forum wouldn't let me upload the image (even though it was a jpg) and said "file type not allowed."So I switched it from rgb to cmyk and then back, and it messed it up.

    I'm sure Ken will be fine...somewhere down the road in future contests :)

    My apologies to Dr. Seuss, from whom I shamelessly stole Christmas. I am being aptly punished, however -- I will be dreaming in iambic pentameter tonight...

    Story title: How Karibou Stole Christmas
    Image Title: An Awful Idea

    Every Daz down in Dazville
    Liked Christmas a lot
    But the Karibou,
    Who lived just east of Dazville
    Did NOT.

    Karibou HATED Christmas! The whole Christmas Season!
    All the gift receipts and cookie sheets, that must be the reason.
    It could also be that her head was a wee bit off-kilter,
    Or perhaps that her mom always called just to guilt her.
    But I think that the most likely reason of all
    Was that her checking account was always five sizes too small.

    But,
    Whatever her reasons
    Her mom or the baking,
    On Christmas eve, she screamed 'til the rafters were shaking,
    And she growled from her cage with a Karibou glare
    Down at Dazville and all the Victorias there.
    For she knew every Daz down in Dazville below
    Would be on super-sale... when she had no more dough.

    "And my wish-list is growing!" she snarled with a sneer,
    "So I'll have to wait for March Madness next year!"
    Then she cursed, with her Karibou brain in a knot
    "I MUST buy the items that I still haven't bought!"
    For tomorrow, she knew...

    ..Her dear 10-year-old twins
    Would leave holes in her wallet where her savings had been.
    And then, to her aunt's house for more gifts to give --
    If she spent another Christmas dime, she'd have NO PLACE TO LIVE!

    And THEN
    They'd do something she liked least of all!
    Her angelic children, so sweet and so small,
    Would sit close together, occasionally fighting
    And then NEXT YEAR'S Christmas lists they'd start writing!

    They'd write! And they'd write!
    And they'd WRITE, WRITE, WRITE, WRITE!
    And the more Karibou pondered next year's Christmas spending
    The more she thought, "There's no way this can have a good ending!"
    "Since I became Santa, I've been poor as a peasant!
    I must find some cash for my OWN Christmas presents!"

    Then she got an idea.
    An AWFUL idea.
    KARIBOU
    GOT A WONDERFUL, AWFUL IDEA!

    Omega - "I claim these as my battle rights, Gemini of the Red."
    Gemini - "As it should be, Great one. I hope they bring you much pleasure."
    Vicky - "Huh? I'm confused, you won Gemini, and he gets to keep prizes? We couldn't even forge those metals until you taught us how."
    Gemini - "There is much you still do not know about my kind Vicky."
    Omega - "The Over Council will send wealth in a form these beings will accept to repair the damage wrought here this day. I also will have the archives opened so they may not only repair the damage but build it better, stronger and in efficient methods in the future."
    Gemini - "As you see fit o' Great one, so shall it be done."
    Vicky - "What? Huh? What's all that supposed to mean? Your acting like he has a choice, and Better? What's he mean better?"
    Gemini- "Vicky, the Over Council sent me here. Your people are intelligent beings and you have now came far enough as a people that your actions can be seen and heard far into the cosmos. I'm here to protect your world and people from those that might wish to exploit a primitive world such as yours. And as you have just seen we will be giving your world knowledge such as advanced metals and soon advanced engineering. Maybe next it will be advanced crop techniques and animal husbandry. In the years ahead I or another Gemini and he or other Omega's will see your world advance until you can join the Over Council. Your great great grand children will live among the stars.'

    LOL. I especially enjoyed the 'genius financial advisor' part but given the fate of poor Scott-Livingston I wonder if I'm not already edible sushi....

    Fantastic poem and render, KaribousBoutique.

    All's well that ends well with the RED Gemini Chronicles... but something tells me Vicky's not convinced! Enjoyed it, Jaderail.

    As for me, I've done another pull but no idea what I'll make of it yet....

    Well, in fairness to Scott, he could have been the squid as I was going for alliteration, (S-S) but Sasje already had the honor. And I just figured Jindi would love being on a yacht. It's Jaderail's birthday so he got to be Mayor. As for Ken's redemption, he'd better be nice to me because I haven't written THAT ending yet (evil cackle.) I notice he's being very, very quiet....

    BTW, the fastest way to do a newspaper (based on MY level of expertise, which doesn't say much) is to bring in primitive planes and attach the images to it in the Diffuse channel. You can move it around that way. I did have to retype that entire thing, because for some reason the forum wouldn't accept my file even though it was a jpg, so I tried switching from rgb to cmyk and that created distinctive areas where I had colored. Go figure. So I had to erase everything and recolor (didn't do it in Photoshop with layers as that's on another computer) so after typing the entire thing a second time, I almost have that newspaper memorized.

    My favorite part? When they "sprang into action" (Sports, page 3.)

    I just LOVE that poem- so very clever!!!! Reminds me of the famous Johnny Bravo cartoon where he refuses to buy girl scout cookies and uses Dr. Seuss. My favorite part is:
    Her dear 10-year-old twins
    Would leave holes in her wallet where her savings had been.
    And then, to her aunt’s house for more gifts to give—
    If she spent another Christmas dime, she’d have NO PLACE TO LIVE!

    Okay, gotta start on render two. Off to Bistro Miami, unfortunately for Gunner.

    I love the the newspaper front page, Novica. Great to see someone raising (or lowering?) the bar even more in our insanity competition.

    Kyoto Kid, I am sorry to hear about your trouble. It is truly very frightening.

    Zawarkal, thank you for sharing that. If you are crazy, I very much admire your kind of crazy and the path you are taking. Now I know why your renders feel so mythological to me. It is a realm I like to look into and know I will fall into myself one day.

    A lot a good stories that I haven't read here and I have a lot of catching up to do.

    Part Two
    On the sprawling acres of the Antelope's Play Ranch in Wyoming, USA, Ma Spencer and her son Roy have been pulling giant crystals out of the ground for the past two weeks.

    "The crystals pop out of the ground red hot, then cool off in a few days and are ready to harvest," Roy said. "Then about a week or so after this all began, Ma began receiving strange phone calls from a Ms Yee, owner of Chipan International, she said. It sounded like a promotional scam so Ma always hung up. After a lot of calls Ma got really angry and cursed at Ms Yee. And that's when things got really interesting -

    "The very next day a little guy, Mr Zau, shows up in a spiffy blue suit. That, and a registered letter comes in the mail the same day from, you guessed it, Ms Yee. And the really crazy part was the dragon - a translucent glowy thing, all long and snaky with little bitty legs and no wings. It looked more like a giant worm than a dragon! It kept flying around the crystals pointing at them making strange sounds. Well, we were soon to find out what all this was about."

    Diamonds, Dragons and Garbage
    Part Three

    Fortunately for Roy and Ma, they did not feel inclined to pull out their shotguns. They perused the letter and gave Mr Zau a chance to show them his computer slideshow on Chipan International's operations.

    "Here is what happens," he said. "We take a lot of garbage, all kinds of garbage, and we always have a lot of that." He laughed "It goes into the compression chamber, and the dragons... it is a little hard to explain - let me say that they do their "magic" and send it through the core of the earth and it comes out over here somewhere. It is like a million years of compression and the big lovely diamonds come out of the ground."

    Roy and Ma were impressed and very pleased when Mr Zau extended Ms Yee's offer of a business partnership, and an opportunity to become very wealthy.

    The very next day Roy and Ma pulled out their best city clothes and, escorted by Mr Zua, were off to visit Ms Yee in Chipan. It was a long plane ride and an even longer drive, but worth it all. They were greeted warmly by their new business partner, who showed them around the facilities where they observed the dragon magic in action. In the days that followed the four developed their business plan. Ms Yee was and Mr Zau were surprised and delighted by the Spencer's business acumen and Ma and Roy were amazed by the dragons and the ingenious methods used by Chipan International.

    And such were the humble beginnings of a company that became an industry that played a major role in cleaning up Planet Earth.

    Zawarkal, thank you for sharing that. If you are crazy, I very much admire your kind of crazy and the path you are taking. Now I know why your renders feel so mythological to me. It is a realm I like to look into and know I will fall into myself one day.

    Luci45, Thank you for your comment. Happy to find a kindred spirit.
