Final Submission- The Delivery
This is my Entry for Newborn- The Delivery
The first time I ever asked about new life was when my little brother was born. I was about 4 years old and my mother told me- " A Stork flew down and delivered him to me". This is what I used as my inspiration with a twist of course.
I hope you all enjoy this, BossaNova

Let me clairify things -that was not ego talking that was 30+ hours of work streaming down the drain, and on top of that seeing artwork that looks like my 8 year-old did it, make it into the poll was like a slap in the face.. Now looking through the Heats for the Polls, I use the term "Overlooked" because I'm trying to save somebodies sense of taste, My personal OPINION of which I am entitled, is for them to cut my piece and admit "some" of the peices that they did, Either they have no taste for good work, or they just did a smack-up job and could have cared less. Yes, you are correct I am no professional I've spent the majority of my life drawing with a pencil and paper this is only my second piece of finished artwork I've done with my tablet & PC. Which also explains the 30+ hours, I am not very fast at this yet. Also no there is not an "obvious" light source it is not able to be seen. The light source is coming from an angle that can not be recognized by the viewer. It would be as if the person seeing this display was holding a flashlight. Like I said though I'm still new to this new "tool" tablet & PS4 and contests and such.. like I said in one of my other posts.. I think next-time I do something like this I'm going to try to keep my composition and subject matter a-bit easier for people to visiualize.. not so complex simple 1-2 main subjects.. bland background, maybe even make everything shades of blues of reds and such and definately will not forget to bleed all the color out of it so teaters on the edge of newspaperdom.

Your piece was not included because it would not have, and will not win. Yes my piece and many others that are in the heats "will not win".
"they have no taste for good work" - You are saying that your art is good work, again, lose the ego and you will progress so much faster.
-"Do you believe your artwork is "good"?-
My 30+ hours, no it was not a waste of time this I know, I said it "felt" like a waste of time.. I have another finished piece. and yes I did learn quite a bit.
This still does not change my mind about my opinion..
And last but not least: This is for you: BDeysher - For one I am not angry about my piece not getting into the poll, I'm angry because I was given a split second answer, as to what happened pertaining to my piece and I do not "Believe" that I was given a honest answer. This will forever be my OPINION.. of this particular situation, there is not a thing thats going to change that for me. Last but not least, I was only making a comparison in an attempt to try to understand the mods reasoning and was disapointed, and seriously what is there about a contest that is not "critical" this is why people enter contests. I've gotten tones of critism on my piece and I never even asked for it.. lol. I just wanted to know what was going on?? Heck I coulda entered my piece in the county fair and gotten a better reason than what they gave me... uhhh yeah we cut your peice because of quality,, we'll gee what was so unquality about it.. No, what the honest answer here is a whole lot of people invested a amazing amount of time into this contest... and the people that started this whole mess decided they got better things ta do... The Ball was seriously dropped.. all the deadlines we're just a big joke.. Seriously if I was the one that was going to take responsability for a contest such as this one.. I would have put just as much time into it as any-one of the people that entered artwork in it.. And lets not complain about being a volunteer.. either, every single artist putting artwork into this contest was just as much a volunteer if not more.. The way this whole contest has gone from point A to point B has been a sham... I seriously expected to see way more. Oh and please, If your gonna reply to this please give me something --more--- than the obvious..
