It's a new user, obviously just spamming artwork around to get noticed.

I'm still plugging away as well. Like Luwano said, after looking at the finished submissions so far I am working hard not to shame myself. I will probably be finished by mid week.

I'm psyched so far. Great work in every submission. If all goes as it has been going then on the last day people are going to drop some awesome finishified sketches.

Glad to see submissions coming in. But even so this is an important post.

Last night impendingriot and I decided to extend the deadline by a little bit to give those who were having a hard time finishing (we have been in contact with quite a number of people who fall into this category) some extra time to work and finish up their stuff

NEW DEADLINE
Wednesday February 20th 11:59pm EST

If you have already finished a piece and want to work a bit longer on it, feel free. I know some of you rushed a little to get them in in time for the deadline, so take this extra time to polish them up if you want to.

So contact your partners to make sure they are aware of this extension.

Yes. This is good news. I had a few things I wanted to fix but hadn't left myself enough time.

man, if I knew there was going to be a deadline adjustment I'd have maybe done a background. Maybe.
Still, happy to see a lot of creative stuff; I feel kind of humbled even bothering competing.

You should go for it! Everyone who has submitted already can use the deadline extention to polish their stuff.

Wow, an extension. I was rushing this since I had a busy week. I got the cast done, and just need to do some shading, but I'll take advantage of it and leave here a WiP for the time being.

Ok the old deadline would be in 1 hour. So this + 1 hour of work would have been my submission if it wasn't for the really really great extension. Gladly I can work on it some more, maybe even fix the rushed upper face and some light stuff. Thanks!

Hmmmm... the extension is tempting but at the same time deadlines for other things. Perhaps I will do something a bit more...

Let me just say it loud that flowers10 did a way more awesome job at my sketch than I did with his. I'm not fishing for compliments, I'm telling the truth. The man makes some amazing work.


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

The final pieces are very well done, everyone has done a fabulous job so far. One thing I can't find myself to fancy though, is the fact that many people focused on flashy technical jazz rather than giving a crack at running with the theme. Some of the submissions portray little to nothing related to beauty and the beast. It appears people either sketched something unrelated to the theme or just ran with the default here's a pretty lady/little girl hanging out with a big robot monster shit thingy. I'd really love to see people push more metaphorical or original takes on beauty and the beast rather than going with what's safe and simply making something pretty.

It's important to note that each artist has their own opinion on what is beautiful and what is beastly. Being unique for the sake of being unique just sounds too hipster for this old comic book geek and I would much rather draw what comes to my head when I hear the subject then what doesn't come to my head because my vision may have already been done. If you enjoy metaphorical abstraction, then by all means indulge, but I think it is wrong to fault those who don't share your exploratory nature.

There are actually a few fairly metaphorical takes on it, many of them from people who *ahem* STILL NEED TO SUBMIT SOMETHING (you know who you are)

By all means, I respect everyone's interpretation of the given subject. I wasn't trying to offend anyone, just saying that i'd love to see more expressive work. Just sharing my mind.
