    A lot of points will be at stake, and given my difficult challenge, we'll see how many points are lost (gained by those with nothing at stake).

    I was very happy that I got 10 responses to the artists and that no one tied... I can't say why, but I really like those numbers... Good luck with the challenge... There are 19 points at stake - and if you manage to win a share from the peanut gallery it should put you in the hunt....

    Well, at least EricBess and TomB didn't get points either this time... :)
  3. Azreal the Soulmaster Sorrow's Rhapsody

    I knew it was safe to assume no one would pick Albrecht Durer, despite him being the best Renaissance artist IMHO. Sadly I thought more people would put Donatello(first free standing bronze nude since antiquity people!)
  4. rkoelsch Angel Boy

    I have not an artistic bone in my body. I just picked ones I knew off the top of my head. No comment as to their skill just their noteriety.
  5. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    BigBlue said in the question that he was thinking of painting artists, not sculptor artists, so that's what I went with.... or tried to.
  6. Azreal the Soulmaster Sorrow's Rhapsody

    well just because I didn't read the directions clear enough is still no excuse:p
  7. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Hey, if enough people thought the way you did and put the same answer, you would have been rolling in the points ;)
  8. train The Wildcard!!!...

    I will say that I did enjoy this one...
  9. EricBess Active Member

    I have to admit, there was part of me that thought a good strategy on this one would have been:

    Rafael, Donatello, Micelangelo, and Leonardo... plus one other random throw-in.

    Still, I didn't get any 1-point answers, so I must have done something right...just not right enough, I guess...
  10. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

    lol, that would be thanks to the 1200 people that were on the messanger at the time.

    See, I only cheat most of the time :D

    Nightstalker Exterra
  11. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Hey Az - Durer was a great painter, I just didn't list him as I was looking for well-heard names...

    here's a copy of my PM to Blue with my answers... just wanted to let you know I shared an interest in the Arts... though I didn't list any sculptors(solely) or architects(solely)... though Michelangelo did "dabble" in sculpting and Architectural aspects...;)

  12. Azreal the Soulmaster Sorrow's Rhapsody

    yeah I didn't think anyone would answer Durer either. I also sincerely doubted Botticelli would get any hits either.
