Yeah, I was sure you'd make the list (NOT ONE of my favorite picks made the cut!). Now I'm not too sure of anything on DA contests anymore. I think (and may be wrong) that if a piece looks TOO professional, they cut it from the judging. If that's true, its discrimination. And if so, they should have contest for every level, to be fair. My two cents.
Spanks for that buddy. But that would be bizarre to say the least- cut a piece for being...too well done? But yeah, it seems a lot of people are wondering how the decision was made because my favorite pieces didn't get picked either even though I was positive they would be.
It might have made it to the finals had the # of entries was 25 as oppose to 15. We'll never know the all the reasons why some got picked and some didn't but I wouldn't count you out of all contest just yet. It's really just a bump in the road.
How in the fuck did this entry not make it in to the finals?!!! That's BULLSHIT!!! This entry is the reason I didn't bother to enter the contest because I was sure it was going to win! Mine was so much like yours, that I desided not to enter. Out of the entries that were picked, this one blows more than half of those out of the water! WTF?! Did they pick blind people to do the judging?!!! Aside from 2 other entries that were picked for the finals, this is one of the best! They picked the one with the girl shooting a gun where the perspective is all jacked up, and the one were the executioner has a giant retard hand, but they didnt pick this one?! Way to go DA judges! Dude, you got hosed. Sorry, you didn't get chosen. You definitely had my vote!
Hey man, thanks a bunch for that! Makes not being picked to the semi-finals a little less painful. I did put a lot of effort into that piece and although I knew I wouldn't win I agree with you that they picked....peculiar pieces. I was sure the one with the girl hiding behind the post was going to win...such an awesome piece...but didn't even make it to the 15 semi-finals?? what's up with that? first and last time I take part in a competition on DA. But again. Thanks dude!
I say keep trying, you're stuff is awesome. Don't let one contest hold you back. I've entered 3 contests so far and havent been picked in any of them, but I keep at it. Eventually something is bound to give. You definitely should have won that one though.
So brutal and powerful to look at, you really did it justice. Right amount of horror and action going on and not too much blood either. Kinda wish you put more detail into the end of the axe and legs, because it'd be even more awesome! But definitely one of the better entries!
What I see is letting me relese my inhibitions. I feel inspired under the sign of a illusion. The dust is settling in my mind after i`ve been watching your masterpiece and I see things clearly again. Thanks
