Zombies....

Is it a reference to a newgrounds submission? If it is I missed it, but if it isn't that might have something to do with it not being accepted. I didn't think the selection would concentrate on pico/dad/hominid so much, but even then they would obviously gravitate more towards ng related art. Also you have the fact that it's pretty on the edge of whether you'd want it hanging in your office or not, and that's the unofficial way acceptable content was being judged I believe. Overall it was good quality though.

BTW, how come Nekow and Vylent didn't get in? Their pieces were off the hook.

Yea theirs were definitely both pretty excellent. Nekows was kinda soft, but I think it worked. Maybe they didn't want too much castle crashing in it, tho imo it could replace the cc that's in there now, they are both good though.

Also aigis that's kinda harsh crit when you wouldn't even draw the hand right in your pic. The smoke and glare could've been done better maybe, but I think it works, and it hardly ruins the pic...

I get what you're saying, I just thought that NG wouldn't mind just a little bit of violence...

I don't think it was the violence that did this piece in. I think it was more of the disturbing aspect of your piece. It was good, but I don't know if anyone would want a calendar with a picture where every time you look at it, it freaks you out.

I must say, I honoustly dont get what poeple are so upset about... There is not a single thing in that drawing that freaks me out... yeah theres blood in it, Anyone around here been watching the news, theres more gore in there. Its just a bit of cute violence, and Im not one to easily say that...

If I were to name a reason as to why it isnt in, its because of
A; not really ng related
B; really static. Its a nice piece, but it could use some more action, or maybe more details in the background. Poeple have to look at it for an entire month you see.

Grats grats to all the winners.

I thought I made an awesome piece, so I'm happy with myself. Next year I'm so going to land a spot on the calendar. Just wait. :3

Last year I watched, this year I tried, next year I'm gonna get one.

;)

I'm fairly interested in hearing the reasoning the judges had for including or excluding entries, if only for future reference

how about it?

yeh, that was something they did last year. i thought it was pretty constructive as well, and it gave us an insight into how to pander to the judges about penises and gore. always helpful.

At least we got a response. ;D

But, a more insightful one would've been nice. Ah well, can't be too picky I guess. :)

the process I personally found pretty painful, we pretty much didn't agree on anything. aside from the obvious pieces of quality. Suggestion vetos left and right, and pieces left out for consideration before we had a chance to even agree on them, Which is kinda ironic considering NG flips the bill for this.

and if anyone deserves an Easter egg position I would Imagine its Elmagico

If El-Magico had entered the contest, I'd imagine he probably would have won a spot.

As for the judging, it wasn't my, or Renaenae's intention to leave a sour taste in anyone's mouth. Sorry if it felt that way.

We volunteered to put this contest together and make it all work, unfortunately not everyone can be 100% pleased with the process especially with commitee judging, and, since it was obvious we were never going to all come to a 100% agreement, decisions and voting had to be done or else we'd probably still be in that chat room right now.

I tried to do my best to direct the judging and make things fair and give plenty of opportunities for the judges to voice their opinions. Maybe MC felt like he was ignored. If so, I apologize and I'll try to do better in future stuff.

Renaenae and I are putting together a little statement on why the winners were chosen. Again, the intent was not to piss anyone off or promote my personal agenda, just to make a cool product for NG that features the site's immense pool of talent.
