Vote For Artist of the Month for October!
September 25, 2006 11:44 pm
Each month the Renderosity community votes on The Renderosity Artist Of The Month [AOM] ... October's AOM will be an artist from the Writers Gallery.
If you are unfamiliar with the work of our nominees, please take a few moments to look over their galleries. Please consider the entire body of work by each nominee. Click on the names below to view their respective gallery. Voting will run for one week, with the results posted shortly thereafter.
There are no polls matching that id.
Artist of the Month is highlighting a talented Renderosity artist that has been nominated by mods and admins, and voted by the community. Recognition is given to this member for their collection of works for that year.
Since we only select one AOM per month, it is not about their works for that particular month. Instead, it is about highlighting a talented artist's works for that year, and they are recognized during that month.
To learn more about Renderosity's Artist Of The Month [AOM] award, and to view our past AOM's, please visit the AOM 2006 page, which can also be found on the sidebar under Highlights.
I would like to see Dan Ritchie added here. He is the author of Project Dogwaffle the paint and animation program, but he is also the author of a novel, Silver Squirrel, which was just reviewed here recently, and Silver Squirrel 2 is about to be released. Not just a few lines of poetry, a whole novel. http://www.squirreldome.com
A veritable potpourri of 'talent'! I'm not much into 'artist of the month' stuff. I simply enjoy the wide range of amazing gifts each writer puts forth. They each bring a dish to pass to the proverbial Thanksgiving table. Each makes for a most, complete 'meal'. A wonderful one, at that. TallPockets.
Hello staigermanus. I'm sure your friend has written an amazing book; however, if he isn't an active member of the writer's gallery he wouldn't have been considered. Each AOM nominee has to be an active member and your friend specializes in 2D here at Renderosity. I didn't see one submission to this gallery. The nominees who were selected have been an integral part of the Writer's Gallery and, considering it doesn't have the member base of other galleries, their dedication to their writing and their sharing it in a gallery that gets such little recognition is what helps keep this place alive. Each have shared their talents with others here. I too am an author of a book but I do not consider that justification in a nomination. The selection of the nominees was more than fair, and I applaud their choices. And, having authored a book and also having written poetry I can assure you that in some cases a few lines of poetry can speak just as loud as 300 pages of a novel. Again, congratulations to all the nominees. You all deserve to be here.
Hello, PSCOTT! (WINK - HUG)! My best!!! QUESTION to staff: Why does it say something like, "Your comments will be posted after the staff has reviewed them"? Can't you always later 'delete' someone who goes ''postal''? That last time I checked, no one has ever yet been killed by 'words' online? LOL. My best, TallPockets.
pscott is correct. The AOM is for artists who place their writings in the gallery of Renderosity, just like the other AOMs. And a talented group they are. It's only been relatively recently that the writers have been part of the AOM, and its nice to see their work recognized. Congratulatinos,everyone!
I'm honoured to be nominated, especially amongst such talented company. So thanks for that. It may be that many of the artists above are unfamiliar, though that's hardly surprising since this is predominantly a site for visual artists. Might I suggest that you visit the galleries using the links above, choose a poem at your whim, and leave a comment. This last will be most appreciated, since feedback is the lifeblood of writers. It needn't be a scholarly literary analysis - a simple honest opinion is quite enough. That way we will all feel like winners, whatever the result of the vote. Mike
"Might I suggest that you visit the galleries using the links above, choose a poem at your whim, and leave a comment. This last will be most appreciated, since feedback is the lifeblood of writers. It needn't be a scholarly literary analysis - a simple honest opinion is quite enough." (MEICO - above quote). -- A big AMEN to that, meico! (espescially pertaining to TallPockets is the, "It needn't be a 'scholarly' analysis". Either his writing or comments. GRINS).
To Staff Members: Hello, kind souls. I just receieved two, 'ebots' in my email. They said something to the affect, "Your opinion post has been approved"? LOL. Are we members going to have our comments and opinions and uploads soon 'reviewed' prior to posting/uploading, also? My utmost 'apologies' to those reading this column. Please, read ALL the above amazing writer's works! T.P.
Hi TallPockets, Opinion posts have always been approved prior to posting to the front page for at least the past three years. Comments and uploads have to comply with the code of conduct and the TOS that members agree to when they sign up. Thanks, Lillian
