    January 2010: Favorite Childhood Toy

  • funkykitty22 1:22 pm on January 24, 2010 | #

    Fun challenge, thanks!

  • Matt L 10:03 pm on January 30, 2010 | #

    some of the entries for ‘smile’ are not actually entries. they just happen to have that as a tag.

  • trebor61 4:07 am on February 26, 2010 | #

    Good point Matt and thanks for pointing this out. Its important that everyone, however, copies and pastes the “multiple tag”, from the current month’s challenge, into the box when submitting their entry. That way, if one tag has already been used elsewhere, folks can get this month’s list by clicking on one of the other tags.
    (Matt – sorry to take so long to reply to your comment. I’ve just looked at this section of the site as I get around to preparing March’s Challenge. I’ve noted your comments in the Challenge invitation as well as here. Thanks for posting this. Bob).

  • Matt L 7:59 am on April 13, 2010 | #

    Oh, same here thanks though, aslo is there an april challenge?

  • Matt L 8:00 am on April 13, 2010 | #

    wait i just saw it in the forums, its just not posted here.

  • trebor61 8:05 am on April 13, 2010 | #

    No problem, Matt. I think this month’s challenge gets added to the list, above, at the end of the month.

  • Matt L 7:44 pm on April 13, 2010 | #

    Oh, okay sorry didn’t know.

  • Virtue112 12:22 pm on January 16, 2011 | #

    How can I posted this blog?

  • Nikira 2:39 pm on January 16, 2011 | #

    Hi, Virtue112 . Make sure your work is not too big in size, less than 1 MB, and post it in Submit. It will show next day or so. Удачи.

  • Virtue112 9:12 am on January 17, 2011 | #

    Никира,объясни пожалуйста мне теперь это на русском.я пользуюсь файрвоксом и то ли у меня что то на поддерживает то ли что но вкладки подобной “создать новое сообщение” у меня нет :( заранее благодарен

  • Nikira 9:21 am on January 17, 2011 | #

    Virtue112, посмотри наверху, третье слева сообщение. Что там? Первое Skine.art второе Logout, третье Submit.

  • Nikira 9:27 am on January 17, 2011 | #

    Фаерфох должно работать. Если есть Submit, то проверь чтобы рисунок,кот хочешь поставить был не больше чем 1 МБ размером.

  • Virtue112 11:49 pm on January 17, 2011 | #

    Хм,а как же ужимать то сильно выходит фото..потери качества как можно меньше всего избежать?

  • Virtue112 8:26 am on January 21, 2011 | #

    Никира,я выслал четыре работы,они не прыевышали размера 1 мегабайта,но всё же они не выставлены?что нужно для этого сделать то, я некак не пойму?

  • Nikira 10:28 am on January 21, 2011 | #

    1). Когда посылаешь рисунки надо убедиться что картинку видишь, после Submit полностью, прежде чем пишешь пояснение, историю о работе, и только после этого отправляешь. В названии желательно не ставить пунктуацию, а просто слова. Должно выглядеть так
    и тогда посылаешь, тогда ты знаешь, что ты рисунок отправил.
    2). Посылай по рисунку в день.

  • Virtue112 12:45 pm on January 21, 2011 | #

    Браузер как бы загружает её некоторое время(показывая это по крайней мере анимацией обновления страницы непосредственно на самой маленькой вкладочке) но самой фото не появляется,вроде как она загрузилась но самой фотографии нет,не слуху не духу от неё,размер соблюдаю вроде как..

  • Nikira 1:18 pm on January 21, 2011 | #

    Если картинка не появилась, что то не так.
    1). Проверь размер файла (от 987 и до 134) примерно, меньше 1мег.
    2). В названии файла, кот. сохранен на твоем компе, нет ничего кроме простых букв, например: Городок, Рыба, Осень, переименуй на компе файл попроще если сомневаешься.
    3).Обязательно дождись картинки прежде чем нажать Post.
    То, что браузер делает вид, что загружается не верь.
    4). Почитай эти правила тоже. http://www.skineart.com/instructions/
    Попробуй еще.

    Got an Idea Uncle, “Is that In the Pink me thinks?” Maybe thing will get color crazy,
    maybe harmonies and contrast never thought nor seen will occur, maybe I will learn not to dread pink, maybe pink is an impossible color, maybe…

  • Uncle Bob 1:51 pm on January 29, 2011 | #

    Thanks greyseal. Your suggestion is now in the jar and has as good a chance as anyone else’s at being drawn. For anyone interested, ideas are sent to the site and I type them on a small strip of paper which is then put into the jar – shown in this photo

  • monmoli 4:43 am on November 16, 2011 | #

    can’t help but notice, no more postings from either Uncle Bob or ZIza!!!
    much missed by me, always inspired by them. What has happened???

  • Nikira 5:09 am on November 17, 2011 | #

    Yea, Monmoli, what with those guys? Sad too. :-/

  • Uncle Bob 4:53 am on November 18, 2011 | #

    Nothing sinister about our absence folks. Ziza has been abroad on business while I have been recovering from a massive amount of decorating in the house. This took around 2 weeks and totally flattened me. Besides, isn’t it a good idea to let others catch up on the “Top Contributors” board? Ziza and I agree that its great fun being at the top but we would not want to hog things. I will start to post stuff later, when I can find the paints etc. which were stored in boxes during the upheaval. I expect that Ziza will have many fine paintings from his time in Nepal – I know he will if his postcard is anything to go by. In the meantime, thanks to you pair for your kind comments. You cannot get rid of us that easily :)

  • GlennT 2:14 am on December 20, 2011 | #

    If you have any questions please let us know. Good luck. :D

  • Uncle Bob 1:16 pm on December 20, 2011 | #

    Hi GlennT. I put this comment on the other post that you kindly gave me information on.
    [Welcome to Skineart. Your comments on the Monthly challenge have been intercepted by Nikira but, if I could just add, please have a go in trying this or any other stuff you may have. I used to be involved with the challenge but my friend, Plasma Girl now organises things. She would say, as I do, that everything people post is most welcome. We do not jury or criticise others’ work. This site is all about sharing ideas and work].
    If I could just add the interpretation of the challenge is entirely up to you. Its always great to see how different folks interpret the theme. The challenge was originally started to encourage contributors to be more involved in reading/using the Forum section of this site. Good luck and we all wait to see your posts. Bob McDowall

  • GlennT 8:34 pm on December 20, 2011 | #

    Thanks a lot :)… anyway where can i find my own recent posts,,, I’ve already posted about 2 drawings but I dont know where to view it :(

  • Uncle Bob 3:41 am on December 21, 2011 | #

    The site is managed by Leo who is based in New York. Its hard to change things from my base, here in Scotland, but, as a Moderator we try to alert Leo by adding notes to the forum. I have, therefore, added your concerns to the forum thread “Posting Issues” which was started by Big Gay Dragon 3 days ago. You can access this link by going to the banners, at the top of the home page, then clicking on “Forum”. If Leo doesn’t spot this (he is a busy guy) may I suggest you re-submit one/both of your posts but make sure you follow the guide exactly. Hopefully this will get you under-way soon.

  • lainer 3:51 pm on July 25, 2012 | #

    I have the same question. I got an email stating that my contribution was submitted, and a url was given, but it leads to a dead page.
