It was a true HONOR to judge this round again. Every competitor has reached such heights over the two last rounds especially... thanks for the inspiration friends !
Congrats to Shelly, your last piece is mindblowing, so poetic and masterful.
Its a true inspiration, thanks for sharing your beautiful vision! Congratulations!

Thanks my friends,
I am quite at lost for words now... The past 8 months has been a great journey. I had the idea of coming into this dome as the lucky all-girl TD winner, just to get my ass kicked by the big guys~ So I came in with fear in my heart; yet I wanted to represent the females on this forum, to be able to use this picture at the end of the day and say:
...Exactly. And now i can! it's a great feeling. Guys don't get me wrong, i have great respect for my oponents in each round, and this pic in no way imply you guys are the bad guys, Hack, i am not even blonde! it's just nice to be ABLE to say it!
Now as i look back onto this experience, one thing i gather worth sharing is: "To respect your own and every artist's individuality". As the rounds evolve, i see definite personal preference and choices emerge in everyone's pieces that's amazing to witness. i never knew what kind of piece i was going to do, and now i see them i am always surprised: "this is Mine?" the part of me that i don't even understand myself came out and played. and that would have never happen if i didn't try to reach higher and put my time into this competition. I hope you guys/girls will enjoy that feeling in the Domes that are sure to follow, and i will gladly cheer you on!
To the girls:
I love there are two females in the final round, Icon and myself, and other girls have contributed great work along the way(Yumiko, Poise, to name a few). I need to thank Magicgoo again for bringing all the girls together in the first girly TD; i would never be here without all you girlys on this forum:
(not all pictured above of course! clearly we are missing Posh! )
and i am very proud of our effort that went into creating the Pinup Callendar for this great forum:
We have created this to celebrate the female artists on this board, and to generate some donation for this Great place that inspires each and everyone of us. Without CA.org, competition in this scale would be unimaginable. I hope we can all take a little cash and support this forum as well.
Love to you all~
wow that is amazing, man i wish i could do that stuff
