Re: Sep 07 Contest Discussion

I posted my entry.

If nothing changes by 5pm tonight then my votes are all set.

If the voting is unlocked early enough on the 23rd I should be able to cast my votes.

Good luck to all! Hopefully I won't get the Icicle Of Shame or be turned into a ...

Ribbit.

Ribbit.

Re: Sep 07 Contest Discussion

grrr, I'm struggling to find 5 I really like (and also meet the criteria) - a few weeks ago I was spoilt for choice, now it seems everyone went back and copied other people and ruined their entries - largely with bad 'hovering' stick-on jewellry and tiaras.
This always happens though, we should be able to ban good entries from being editted More is not always better people! *grumbles*

The image was the same for all so it's normal for entries to have many similar things. We have the same subject, guidelines and the tiaras are an obvious choice so my opinion is that is not about copying. U can see the personality in each artwork.
And if u use the word " everyone" , can I ask who did u copy ? :P

I'm talking about people who didn't have those things in their entries have gone back and edited theres after someone else did it.
I have no problem with the concept of tiaras or stick on jewels - just the implementation. A key part of the description was that it should look like a photo but the shadows don't match and its all 'hovering' off the page with bad drop-shadows (for the most part). (as a person who has worn much stick on jewellry and glittery stars - I know what it looks like)

Re: Sep 07 Contest Discussion

NancyJ,
Chill out a bit,lol. My entry has already been described as brutish by some kind sole, but if I hadn't gone back and looked and edited, and looked and edited, and then looked some more, it would have been so much worse, and if I find inspiration in the work of others, and see and learn along the way, then I for one am happy.
I didnt want to go for some of the overly glammed up looks that have been done, not my style, I read a more darker, sinister book where an ice princess can have a much darker side, so brutish she may be, but she fits with the character I had in mind.
