This is why i typed a follow-up on a more calm note....
I didn't mean Universal...I was typing mad and meant International, because I have won art competitions on a national and international level.

Lastly...I have been to your NG portal page...I have seen your artwork...and yes, it is art...and I would give you a fair assessment or critique...but never turn to you an say your art sucks. I would try to bestill a confidence in you so you would continue to create. And if you wanted me to help you with ideas...I would offer only suggestions on how to help you help yourself be at a comfortable level you can handle....again....never telling you, you suck.
So....I hope you read my other post....Peace.

I understand and my follow-up comments to DemocracyFTW were not meant to spam the Talk Thread...but to make a statement about art in general and that no one deserves to hear that they suck....I really do hope you get the art needed to make up twelve great months for a new NewGrounds 2011 calendar...they benefit everyone...useful and great fun to look at. And thanks for getting that I needed to vent . It's all good

Hmm,
I must say that the submissions are turning out to being nothing but crap. The submissions last year were almost pure gold with of course, an exception or two.

Also, could people (as myself) that took part in last's contest and had submitted submissions to it but had never won, submit the same ones again to this year's contest?

Actually, the first year we had a really hard time picking just twelve from the 160-ish submissions. We could have easily made 2 different calendars with all the great stuff people submitted. Last year we only had half as many entries and just managed to squeak by. Still got two full weeks to go on this one... so, we'll see what happens. Maybe we should do 6 month calendars... twice a year! lol ;P

Also, could people... submit the same ones again to this year's contest?

No.

I'm fairly certain that people said the same thing last year?

Here is another design rough WIP. This actually took longer than I thought it would (especially that damn VS detail splodge affect). Was playing Street Fighter and guess it gave me ideas.

I'm liking it so far. But it is barely to completion, just would like some criticism before I go any further with it (I'm gonna try to get as much designs as possible for the best result).

Thanks ~JKA

Emuzin, you should have stopped posting pictures after the Hominid Egg one. The egg looks pretty damn sweet but the backgrounds needs a little rework, just to know where is this event happening, but everything after you posted looks pretty shitty, no hard feelings tho, you wanted attention

Wow. The drama level increased a great deal, rather suddenly. I know all about frustration. There are loops of people farting that are rated higher than my songs. It's not a joke, but it feels like a cruel one sometimes. The best remedy is to do what makes you feel good, regardless. We all have an average of 25,000 days on this Earth. It seems like a long time, but it is the blink of an eye in cosmic spacetime. Use it wisely.

Yeah, some people get offended more easily than others... even when comments aren't directed at them. What can you do?!

It's typical that the earlier submissions contain some 'less than serious' efforts. People think they're being funny or whatever... and some are... but you just have to take it for what it is and move on (or take some time away to get things back into perspective, lawl! :P)

Anywho... I'm noticing several entries that aren't the right size. Would be a shame to have your hard work disqualified over something so simple.

Best entry yet!

You should add "Me" with a chainsaw or something else though to give it some more detail

I am glad this was mentioned and answered...ReNaeNae stated that some entries were undersized...I was noticing that I entered a complete specified 3225X2400 and 300DPI...and when I uploaded it to the dump for a hi-res...it changed the size on NG...yet it is still the correct size file on my server....so I don't know...are they still being received in the dump as 3225X2400 etc or as we see the links version (lower quality and size, even though it supposed to be HIRES?)

Me too. I don't dislike your work Yellow Pencil...I think you are very creative...but no offense...I feel I deserve a bit more respect than just saying everything after is crappy...I don't feel my rendition of Pico Double Fisted Iron is crappy...I think the quality matches one or two of the pictures picked last year...he is sort of a pop-art version (like pop-eye)...also the can he is holding represents two things...the second portion of iron...and i didn't spell spinach all the way on purpose...we live in a technical, digital world so he is holding his I-Nach...instead of I-Pad or I-pod..and out pops power...(Nach slang for Noche' which is Yittish for small food or snack break)...and the SLOTS...I was trying to gravitate to other things found on NGs...that is why I finished with Armed Prophet....I am satisfied with not everyone or no-one liking my work...but spite criticism is wrong...so my bad for doing what I hate...and hope everyone feels the same. Peace...enjoy my entries...best to all
