Good luck everyone,you all did a great job
Uh yah I sent my peice to the e-mail address given and I also posted my peice in the special forum.. for final entries.. and definately before the deadline.. And I do not see my piece in any of the 8 heats?? It was called
"The Delivery" ya kinda lame.. feel like I wasted my time here..
BossaNova: I got a few things to say to this, first of all:
I checked your email and the reason it was cut was because of the above. Now, since we do not aim to discourage people and because there's always a lot of leeway I would have considered putting it in the poll after all -if you'd just send me or Daestwen a polite PM asking about it. Since you decided not to follow this request but instead figured making several angry posts about it would help I have to say that I'm not inclined on putting it in the poll after all.We took the liberty of taking out a number of entries for various reasons. If you don't see your entry in here it can be because of the following reasons:
1. Quality: While we have not been very strict on this, considering everyone had well over a month to finish something for a high-profile contest like this we expect a certain level of quality and finish to your entry.
If you have any real burning questions regarding this, send a PM to either Daestwen or Yoitisi.
Where do you get angry?? I just wanted to know where my peice was... I don't mean to be discouraging.. you got to be kidding me. Your telling me that my entry was cut because of quality.. gee thats not discouraging whatever.. I looked through all 8 of the different Heats set-up and every individual entry and I find your excuse "quality" to be less than an honest statement. Yes I did spend a very significant amount of time on this peice and let me ask you would you not be a bit irritated if your artwork did not make the poll, and especially without a sorry please try again e-mail or msg. I personally believe that my artwork was overlooked and rather than just admitting to that,you've given me this pathetic excuse in an attempt to cover your ineffiecencies. If it was not, you would not have erased my main thread from the main contest forum and you would have addressed the problem for everyone too see & judge.
Bossanova: As I mentioned before, if you'd just inquired about it in a decent PM I would've been willing to consider putting your image back in the poll. I still think it's only half-way decent for multiple reasons, and no dragging other people's entries into it will make yours any better. I gave you an honest answer earlier on, whether you like that fact or not.

I'm done, When you have to conceptualize an idea for a contest you want to think up something amazing something that nobody will think-up so that your picture will be the only one of it's kind.. and then to take that "idea" from that point to a finished piece of artwork is a whole nother ordeal. Through out this journey to stay within the boundries of the given subject matter can be quite diffacult now given that note. The more original the idea the more diffacult this can become.. for example rendering a picture of a Newborn human child a subject that one has seen and noted time after time in ones life is much easier to display for another. Now, taking an image from ones mind that is ultra supernatural and will only be able to be seen in it's true entireness by the one that has envisioned it is a completely different theatre. This can prove to be almost impossible for both the person representing it and the person trying to understand it.. Sometimes we just need to keep things simple.. catch you on the flipside
Well, I'm glad my picture made the poll and at least one person thought it was nice.
Hey everyone, there's only a few more days left to vote on the first round of the poll so make sure you've got your vote in before it closes!
The final round of the polls will be up as soon as this one is closed, it will contain the entries with the most votes in each heat (most likely we will take a few entries out of each heat) and will determine the winner of the publics' choice.
I spent a couple of hours yesterday going through them all. The standard is very high, so I'm really chuffed that I got a few votes. I might have missed a few, so apologies to those even if you don't know who I mean.
Aaah, just noticed this , most excellent. The artwork looks amazing, and so many interesting takes on the subject matter. Congrats to everyone who participated, and good luck! =)
