What I Am Against: make a sig supporting a movement or ideology that you do not agree with in a way which supports it
About a Poem: contest holder posts a poem of their choice and everyone creates their graphic interpretation of that poem
Battledome: a sig about the Neopets Battledome
Vices: What keeps you from being your best

That is the most fucked up and disturbing comic I’ve ever read, it might just give me nightmares.

This is a nice idea but... I don't know, do we really need this? So far I think people came up with awsome ideas for the contests they run, didn't they? And I like the surprise when a new SOTW comes out and I see the theme for the first time and think about what I would do, when I wouldn't suck at graphics.

For the record, I agree, but since the topic was posted I figured I would contribute ;)

I know we are supposed to keep conversation to a minimum here but Spielberg Challenge is seriously the BEST SOTW idea I have ever heard. Honestly- the coolest idea ever.

You mean when calum took over for someone else, and came up with absolutely nothing for his theme?

This is a good idea. If someone can't come up with a theme, they have plenty of suggestions.

Hm. Coming from a graphics/colour/art standpoint, here's some ideas:

-Collaboration (self-explanatory)
-Stockless/Handicapped (as in you use only what's default in your graphics program or no stocks/renders.)
-Typography (Focal point has to be text)

Uuh. Lemme scratch my brain for the next couple of days, and I'll see what I can come up with for ideas for you guys. :3
