Thanks Randis, have to agree with the others for your words.
This was a great experience personally. Winning is always nice, but realistically being new to digitally painting and as Nironeru mentioned, using a very outdated PS and mouse, it was more about going against some of the great talent listed here and pushing yourself to get there. Looking at some of the artwork in here is very inspiring.
a new tablet can't teach me half the things I learned from fellow competitors critting when I was updating my thread. My image didn't portray my idea at all in the end--but I sure as hell learned a lot along the way. I eventually forgot this was a contest and that there was a prize. I like it that way.
good luck to everyone :3 i enjoy looking at the art.
ratings mean at least they looked at your work
"Be either full-assed or no-assed. There is no half assed."
indeed, I totaly agree, in this contest, for some reason, it is not the prize that became the center of our focus, but to make ourselves better than we are yesterday... this contest added a lot to our own experiences as artists and that is something that we can already consider as a prize...
I just wanted to take an opportunity to tell everyone who participated in this competition, Thank you.
This competition saw the whole spectrum of skill and experience lvls from
beginners to pros, and it has produced so many creative interpretations of a
seemingly simple brief. It was a great learning experience for myself as I'm
sure it was for everyone else as well who was able to participate. Also, it
was so awesome to see so many people who where willing and eager to give
critiques and help to the same people they where competing against. It says
a lot about CA.org as a community, and I for one feel privileged to have been
a part of such a creative and inspirational competition. So, again thank you
all very much, and good luck to everyone.
