... would Warhammer be acceptable? I'm literally choking on spray paint fumes right now, so putting together a graphic of a flamer-sporting Space Marine torching down some xenos filth would be delightful.

 

Yes, Warhammer would definitely be acceptable.

 

Okay, so, I've got a question. It involves burns, which is what fire causes. Does it have to be a burn from an actual fire or a burn from chemicals? 'Cause I've got a really cool WWI idea.

 

Hmm... I dunno, I feel like chemical burns would be straying too far from the fire theme. There really needs to be some fire involved. Maybe you should go for WWII instead and draw a Flammenwerfer? :P

Guess I've got to write about a tank crew getting burned alive then.

Sorry for the double post, but I've got another question.

 

Exactly how graphic can this be? My entry is a written one, and I know fire is destructive, but I don't quite know how... gritty (?) we can get.

Oh, I just assumed you were submitting an art entry. Going for full gritty war story, huh? You can be as graphic as you feel is necessary... It should be fine. If not I will let you know.

I attempted Nova Refuge bribery already. It was countered by a total lack of editing.

Ha, I guess I'm known as an artist around here. I didn't think I could capture the feral carnage that fire causes in a drawing, not at my skill level. Yeah, I'm gunning for a full gritty war story keen on showing both sides of it. I'll be sure to post it as soon as I feel it is finished.

An hour and 5 minutes past the deadline, hopefully that's not too late.

Here's my little entry. > http://forums.saber-...showtopic=10855

Cheers.

Plot twist, Neyo is a time traveller.

 

 

 

Although, it's a good thing it is in August.  I still need a building and fire Lego peices for what I plan on doing...

 

Only real thing I have going for it is the two characters.

 

Well technically one, but two versions of them.

I have the vignette sitting on top of my freaking desk, and it has been for a week or two now but I just can't get any gorrammed good lighting. :P

Minnesota is being surprisingly like England this year.

I wish. I've got a few dying lamps meant for shooting good photos, but again, they're all dying, and even with them the natural lighting here sucks so bad that they'd probably just make the picture look worse.

I still have a whole nother vig I wanna make, too. :P

 

EDIT: Also doesn't help that the base of my photo setup is the kitchen counter, and that surface is perpetually unclean, so when I finally get around to taking the picture I also gotta clean the counter. (Don't worry it doesn't look unprofessional at all. It's a nice, smooth, shiny black granite that looks great in photos.)

Yeah, I used those for a while. Be careful sitting or standing too close to them. You'll get so hot you'll start to wonder if you're risking spontaneous combustion.

But yeah, it's incredibly hard to get good lighting. The best free option is the sun, of course. Hard to beat that big ball of fire. Hope the weather clears up for you soon.

I have one of those lights, too!  But yeah, Scorp is definitely right about the heat issue, plus it's hard to cram one of those into some bedrooms.

 

You might have something like this at your local hardware store:

 

http://www.ebay.com/...w-/371351913916

 

Much smaller, cheaper, and fewer chances of unexpected burns.  It makes a nice desk lamp, too.  I'll give mine a try when I have my entry ready to photograph, and let you be the judge of whether it provides sufficient lighting.
