One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Very nice.  I like how variable your pattern is.  In fairness, I will enter your line pattern in as one entry.  Thanks for this contribution!

Nice idea Sugarbaker! I was planning to build an Essence about 2 years ago, but ended up with a Sixth Sence finaly.
I have to search for my sketches, as I was looking for the design as well. I will take part in this fun for sure! Smiley
Just one question - what is the timeline? when do you close the time for entries?

Best,

Paweł

Pawel, there is no set deadline.  I'm hoping to have at least 10 entries in the next few days, and will start the voting/poll around May 1st.  The poll will probably be set for 1 week... At which point I'll start building.

Fun topic.  I've playing around with this while procrastinating. Smiley  But no more time to procrastinate!  Leaving soon for a festival, so I thought I better post up what I have in case it's too late when I get back. 

Here's the design. 

And some potential colorings. 

(Hmmm...can someone help me get the images embedded in the post like the rest of you have?  Or is it not possible because they are attachments?)

That is my contribution: simple, functional, with a little highlight effect, which you can also see in my avatar.



Update to your shape:

*Some great designs coming in.  We are now at 10 contributors (many designs, but 10 separate artists).  The submission process will end tomorrow evening (Sunday April 27) at 8:00 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time).

Any designs that come in after that time will not be included in the poll, which will be started sometime later in the week.  I will take all the designs and turn them into a black and white line drawing (basically a blank color template).

For the poll, I will include the line drawing and the original color submission (if you submitted multiple color schemes for your sail pattern, I will choose the first of your submitted options unless otherwise notified).*

I will also add this information to the original post in this thread.  Anyway, anyone that has a design you're hoping to submit, make sure you get it to me either in the thread or via P.M. so it will be counted in the poll.
