Would it be okay to do a ligth scene if the challenge was a ''to make a  dark scene''?


jamesmorrow07 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/20/2009 09:10

So... Would it be okay to do the opposite of the 7 Deadly sins, the 7 Heavenly Virtues, or just stick with what's posted?

Lust -- Chastity

Gluttony -- Temperance

Greed -- Charity

Sloth -- Diligence

Wrath -- Patience

Envy -- Kindness

Pride -- Humility

My release party is tomorrow. Ya'll heard.

ekobor (Level 4 Murderer) @ 10/19/2009 20:12

 Second question, does it have to be a representation of the sin, or a personification?

So could one do something like show a pride parade, and list it under pride, a buffet under gluttony, a casino under greed etc etc? 

{E} oh, I see the same question in the challenge thread. don't mind me.

7even (Level 9 Nidan) @ 10/19/2009 19:10

I was not complaining, really :) And I'm happy for the knights theme, I even earned a star for it 8D

In fact, just intrigued, since I liked the theme (and since I suggested it before XD)

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/19/2009 13:47

That is true 7even. Since then the 'religious' thing has been reversed.

You shouldn't complaint about tho your challenge is still the #1 with most entries eva!

mysterious mod edit: the second most entries

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/19/2009 13:20

Nope, incorrect-o. Only 6 colours are the same and the Windows 7 palette has 8 fewer colours.

7even (Level 9 Nidan) @ 10/19/2009 11:06

I was going for the 7 deadly sins when I suggested a theme (which turned out to be the 7even Knights), but they said it was too risky to put a religious theme on a contest...

Also, I believe this is pretty much the same pallete from Vista, and we already had one like that. Anyway, seems like a nice challenge.

Morganne (Level 4 Murderer) @ 10/19/2009 09:37

I love you guys. I was just about to ask for another pallette challenge. Hopefully Ill have time to participate.

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/19/2009 06:58

Hm sorry about that, I've updated the article.

ekobor (Level 4 Murderer) @ 10/19/2009 06:49

200x150 does that mean 200wide? high? Or either way?

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/19/2009 05:32

Is there a way to combine all 7. i don't have time to enter. feel free to use this idea: a wife finds her husband on the couch watching porn while eating pizzas.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/19/2009 02:21

Wishful reading: Windows' seven deadly sins...

You'll burn in Hell, Bill!
