im cool like that

Sorry, Leggy, but Carrion already has claim on 38. You can pick from 2, 3, 8, 12, 22, 23, 28, 29, or 32 though!

We can talk about switching spots or something. I have two or three other candidates, that's why I said it is hard to decide for one. No prob for me.

And yeah Test, yours came out pretty really cool.

Neither of those are available, but good try. You can pick from 2, 12, 22, 28, and 29.

Beautiful! You used your emoticon very cleverly. I just saw carvings like these the other day at the art museum. Do you want to crop it to the right size? If you don't, I will, but I don't know what you prefer qualitywise or whatever, so I'll throw it back to you if you want to mess around with it a bit more. Great work, test!

At 10 hours ago, Amaranthus wrote: Done!

Wow, I like your idea of making it into a dragon! I can totally see that face in that context. Now, I'm afraid to say I don't think what you have currently submitted is super great, so I'mma ask you to try again. Know that I like your direction though, you're on the right track. My favourite part of it is the scales, the pattern they make is cool. If I were to make some suggestions, they would be: tighten up a lil' bit because it's kinda sloppy, use brighter colours/more contrast (unless your intention is to have it look foggy/diluded/washed out, in which case, perhaps make it seem a bit more deliberate), and maybe flesh out your idea a little more. I want to see more of this dragon and its setting, maybe redo it and add a background on it. Good luck!

There are only 5 slots left: 2, 12, 22, 28, and 29. . Also, I'm implementing a rule that if a user submits something that isn't up to the quality standard, and their 2nd attempt still isn't good enough, the spot will be reopened. Since I already told M-Maher and Ignxhll they should try again, they will get a 3rd attempt, but if their newest submissions do not pass, then their spots will be renounced and then other people can have a chance to participate.

Here is the newest list.
If the name is underlined, that means their entry is completed.
If the name is italicized, that means they are submitting their 2nd attempt.

Simplicity has its place, but I don't really think it works visually in this piece. The concept is nice, albeit a bit cliche. You get another shot though, make me proud Bob!

Meh. Who am I kidding? I won't be able to hit the quality your looking for. The other submissions show I'm way outclassed. Believe it or not, though it was a simple design, it really was me trying but i guess I'll just stick to crafting. I'm out.

Awesome collab Spaghetti! I'm really liking the turnout. I'm not trying to be a douchebag here, but I'm thinking a little quality control would be great. But it's your collab so it's only a friendly suggestion, you don't have to actually do it. I guess too much quality control can in turn minimize the amount of participants so I think I can understand your point of view.

Good luck! I hope you win many awards with this collab.

I think Spagz was maintaining a good kind of quality control so far, dunno what you mean actually. Not every pic you see has been accepted if that is what confuses you. Talking about quality, why don't you join, Mr. Van Fiftyheimer?

seriously, be more active here again ^^

Oh sorry. I thought exactly what you said. In that case keep up the good work Sphag! I think I wouldn't be able to join anytime soon since I'm currently going through a lot these days. I still need to do some work so I can go to an art university and I still need to finish that project me and a friend are working on. So yeah. :P

I'll stand by the sidelines.

:It just seems like a doodle still, very rushed. You should take your time, you have plenty of time to think about concepts, make sure your craftsmanship is good quality, all that good stuff. You can do it, you just need to hone the power of patience!

Im a very loose artist its just how i roll i understand that it may not sit well with others and ill try to actually sit down and be more controlled about my lines and actually spend more time with my art.

anyhow the following image is not my final piece nor is it a submission piece however it is merely a derivative of your idea of personalization being incorporated within the art, that and a what if,

the what if being: "what if the emoticons were ranks or titles held by soldiers, the ranks ultimately determining the weapons the soldier uses and the style of armor he or she wears"

its an interesting idea though i doubt i could go through with it.

anyhow i have 2 other concepts that are waiting to be drawn up that ill do tomorrow, obviously to a greater standard.

I see, okay that's fine, i understand that my skills aren't to the standard you're looking for so ill step aside, I'm sure someone is better suited for the job and i wish everyone luck on their future endeavors relating to the collaboration.

Please may I join in with this collab, It will be my first submission I would like to do number 22, if this is alright I am intrigued by the showing of emotionless and simplicity. I know that there is a lot of trust that must be used since it is my first but I am sure I will be able to manage it with some help. I will post some of my art if that will help the chances but I need to get hold of a scanner to do this.
