expect another entry from me :smiley:


Eh, a moronic ox? %|

No, that’s a tautology.

What to do, what to do?

And I pull out of yet another one…
Y’know, I should really start working on these before Monday morning, eh?

Jumbo shrimp!
Rap music!
Non-dairy creamer!

I’m in. Placeholder.

My entry for this week: War Games. I picked this image as a chance to play with the particle system a bit. I love the weekend challenge because it gives me an excuse to try new things and get it done by a deadline. Hope you like it. This entry is pure blender.


Here is my entry.

I think it would be considered an oxymoron?

Ooh, ooh, I’m in! Maybe if I make another 30 second gag entry, I can get 5 votes! How the hell did I got 4 last time?


Alright, here’s one of those Sunday-Night-I’m-Tired entries.

Yet another opportunity to take a shot at Microsoft.

tough eh? well you try thinking of a topic 5 minutes after you woke up! it was either this or “humster killing machines”. :stuck_out_tongue:

God, it’s been so long since I enetered, oh well, here you go:

Military Intelligence
“That bridge’ll hold a tank, no problem”

No oxymoron for placeholder yet I see…

nonexistant placeholder


A lot of those aren’t actually oxymorons. Take “Mutually exclusive” for example – If there are two sets that have a union equal to the zero set, then their exclusion range always contains the entirety of the other set, and they are therefore mutually exclusive. Perfectly possible and even common.


That’s a lot of possible topics. :o

Nice broad subject @ner. :wink:

I’ve started on an image. I’m new so I can’t get results I want. So I’ll make for it somehow, or try monday night.

kill me for trying. I hate blender! ARGH!

Black Light

NB: It’s not even an oxymoron. But it is halloween! The two kids are playing with a black light on the sofa, it seems they heard it at school and decided to get one themselves. The message on the wall would not be known about by them or their parents.

Placeholder, please.

My first one ever… I’ll give it a try.


‘Braveless Knight’
Pure (Blender & Yafray)

Microsoft Works

this is the microsoft keyboard.


I’m gonna call this one open since I put everything together in ps:

bomb made in blender in multiple passes (base, oa, refl, etc)
planet rendered in blender and pasted on in ps
atmospheric effects and bright stars in ps
background stars is a collage/painting in ps

“we come in peace”

yeah, I guess it’s not so much “oxymoron” as it is ironic

edit: here’s the latest update

I’ll enter this one.
