Sorry this took so long guys. You know, life. If you want to comment on how I did, just hit me up on my profile.

Last theme: Fairy tale

4 entries! Not bad, not bad at all. Yes, some of you are probably thinking, “Hey, there were 5 entries! Daleks cannot count.” While the latter is sometimes true, it is not the case today. I am not counting Zombieman's drawing because it is just memes, and I don’t think he made it.
Anyway, the Winner is:

The picture is well done I can tell, slightly ruined by the scanner quality which sucks. It fits the theme nicely, having the classic guy gets girl in the background.  It also has a lot of mystery to it, because of the elf guy. Did the elf want the girl? Did he help them get together? It could go either way.  The drawing is great, especially the trees which look really realistic.  The reflection of the elf in the pond is not my favorite and I believe could have been a little better.  Other then that, I think it was very well done. Good job gaboloth!

Mixing sci-fi with fantasy was great. The guy is obviously the focus of the picture because of the use of darker lines. The fairies are well done, but you cannot tell their emotions. Try working on small faces and putting some detail in there.  The mushrooms look slightly out of place, like they don’t belong. I believe it is the size of them and maybe the fact they don’t have shadows. Still a great drawing that fit the theme well.

How would that be out of theme? Anyway it is a nice drawing.  It is funny how a fairy is reading “Human Tales”. It was just a bit too simple for me. I felt as though you could have added a bit more to the background or maybe thrown in some color to make it more interesting. I hope you do keep on drawing for the competition though.

Like kegaumongo’s I think it is a little simple. There really is no background, and the tree just makes it look awkward. Also I don’t understand why to the side of the tree it is darker then to the left of the tree. The drawing of SlenderMan is good, even though I don’t know much about him. Try working on the background next time and it will be a lot better.

Next Topic: Collage

That's right! Just make a collage of whatever you want. If you don't know what a collage is just Google it.

Due: Sunday 23

Everyone is welcome to try, but, as with 3d art, don't count on me being completely unbiased when judging.

Don't worry Cen. I would have done the same thing.

Would not have allowed the rage comic

Haha, I probably would not have allowed it even if he had sourced it. I could make that in 10 seconds. Plus it wasn't his. I swear I have seen it before.

And I disagree that the themes need to be more specific.

So is my theme OK? You can change it if you really hate it.

And just so you know Cen, I didn't see your post before posting mine. So anything we said similar is just awesome people thinking alike.

watch a few documentaries on him,then you will know why the picture looked so strange.Slenderman sends people insane with his tricks,thus making the person looking at the picture think that they are not seeing it correctly.Meaning that slender is near,and he has chosen you for his next game.

Well if he plays tricks then you could have made the image blurry. Or added somethings that looked like they could be there but shouldn't.

Erm... Just askin'... How many characters do you think is enough for a collage?

I was planing to draw a group of characters and wonder how much i should put in there.

I have no idea how to judge something, where it isn't the concept that comes from one source, but the medium and presentation that has to be the same.
I also would have no idea how to enter this round, which tends to be my final decision making factor in choosing a theme.

So, well.
No idea. I guess it's up to people to figure something out.

Note: Would have been nice with a link back to the last judging, like I do. Then people can see the former judgings, without having to deal with looking through a number of pages.

No, you can draw stuff to make a collage.

As many as you want. Collages tend to not have much negative space, at least in my mind. So it is up to you.

I feel like I failed you Cen.

Nah, stuff happens, I am sure I will wing it has good or bad as anyone entering this round.
Who said the judge shouldn't be challenged as well?

The link would have been nice, though.
