Question. Do we have to wait until the contest is over before displaying our illustrations on a personal online art gallery (deviantART, pixiv, tumblr, etc.)? Or can we do so at any time as long as we email our submission first?
I would say please email the submission to us first before posting it elsewhere, but we can't/won't stop people from doing so.

Any chance this contest can get a 1 week extension so that those of us with hectic school schedules can capitalize on Thanksgiving break? Of course an even longer extension would be fantastic, but I'm not trying to push my luck. :thumbsup:

Honestly didn't hear about the contest until today, but I wouldn't have had time to do anything anyways. I'm spending 16hrs a day in the studio, 7 days a week.

Well, my submission is in. It's a hell of a lot better than my previous submissions. I think it could be better, but I'm not quite that experienced with Photoshop, plus I'm lazy. I'm pretty proud of it, regardless.

Good luck to all the entrants! :thumbsup:

We might consider this due to the lack of people that have currently entered. When it's decided, we'll let you know. The issue I see is trying to get our judges together if everyone's spending time with family over the break.

I understand. I made time to brainstorm and sketch today during lunch, but I doubt a sketch would fair well in the competition. :X:

I assume writing blurbs detailing the encounter is encouraged?

Can't help but feel Thanksgiving/Finals/Christmas has come to hinder the number of entrants yet again. I know I was busy with final projects (~110 hours a week) right up until Thursday. Thankfully I'm used to pulling some insane hours, so I hammered things out anyways.

Regardless, I'm absolutely thrilled with how my submission turned out. How is everyone else feeling about theirs?

Wow. Just wow. Those winners are amazing. Congratulations to everyone who entered. Looks like a decent amount of entries this year. A lot of great ideas. :thumbsup: :awesome:


On a personal note, while I'm happy with my entry, I feel like I'm way out of my league. I'm going to have to gain some more experience and try harder next year. :adam:


Also, I don't know when all the entries were submitted, but it seems like the deadline gets extended every year, just about. Maybe the deadline needs to be later, or the contest start later. Fall tends to be a busy time for a lot of folks.

Must say I was hoping for a 3rd time 3rd place in a row, but I don't really disagree with any of the choices. A lot of stellar work, and an impressive turnout all around. :thumbsup:
