I don't know why you can't just throw out a theme now and judge that later while someone judges this one.

Yay! I have influence!

That might get a bit confusing to people in the new competition, looking at judgements twice... And also, the only way killersup will learn to judge is through either training or trial, and no one is currently available to train him. They could let him try this one and then see how he needs improvement.

I never disputed the fact that killersup shouldn't judge, I meant that while he was doing it a new theme could be announced to give people something to do.

Cenere has final judgment on what Killersup does, he will know what to correctly do. However, as long as everything goes okay Killersup will be able to have judging done on a average week in only a few days. All depending on what is on the schedule for that week.

Whoever wants to judge should go ahead and judge. Everyone. I guess, whoever gets in first will get the job, unless people are going "I just really love giving people critiques and ranking stuff, but I don't want to judge", then obviously it will be the next in line and so on, so forth.
I don't particularly care, I am not going to take up judging anymore this year, and I only enter for the crits, so...

Go ahead, if Salvidian gets his internet up and running, order will be restored at that time, but until then, no one is stopping you.

First time judging, letâs see how this goes.

WINNER: Cenere.
The bright polished looks of the golem shows tones of futuristic technology that modern scientist only wish to perfect. You probably already noticed this, but it made the viewerâs eyes move from right to left and then up and above searching for the next interesting thing that you drew. The angel boy (?) and human were a nice touch; they helped show off just how ânewâ the robot was. The bright, brilliant colors helped to separate the different bits and pieces of the robot that could have been miss-understood. The colors really stood out through the whole picture, well done. It could have been improved if you would have taken out the first layering of darkness around the city. It makes it look like the city is being lifted up by some weird mound of earth. Also, for the robot looking so magnificent, the buildings almost seem to be on an angle with the picture. Overall, it was a great picture that was well worth first place.

ThoadtheToad: You were the only one to really think more about a futuristic building then a robot. That made your entry special. Killersup really liked your space-ship and space home (?)The home was well made, the fact that it is exploding makes it even better. The movement in the picture really helps the viewer to imagine the scene inside the picture. The floating pieces of ship and the smoke could have been done a little better. The smoke rising seems to block out parts of the best thing about your picture, the flames. The broken off pieces of floating rubble just seems to get in the way, maybe if they were positioned better than it would look a little better. At the bottom of the picture, the ring got confusing to follow around the corner. Now to get to the good parts about your picture. The flame was well mixed together to form that kind of light, fiery fire that every artist aspires to have. Being able to see through the clouds allowed to viewer to both get the feel of the light, fluffy clouds, and the building as a whole. The ship was well made, but the other wing seems to have disappeared. Canât wait to see what you come up with next time.


ChromeDeathRazor: Lots of good, and lots of bad. Overall, itâs an average/decent drawing. Lots of detail was put into this, every last piece of armor was well drawn. You did great up to the arms. It seems like you got confused on where to go with them and ended up just trying to make everything fit. The joints and fingers seem crooked at a few parts. It seemed like you wanted to shade, then decided not to, then wanted to shade again. Bits and pieces seem to randomly be colored in deeper than other parts. Not too hard to fix though, as long as you have more time next entry you should be able to shade a bit better. The gun was well drawn; all the lines are nice and straight with all the parts of the gun matching up. You said you were rushed, so next time you can put in the tiny details that you left out, and fix the ones that were already pointed out to you. Good job though.


Bronze: Not horrible for a little sketch, but a few holes in it. After a while the second leg finally was found. The angle was weird, and the leg was hidden from the view of most people. The arms were not badly done, but the hands/fingers were almost impossible to correctly make out. They began all bunching together, next time try to space them out a little bit more. Also looking at a few professionally drawn hands will help you understand the concept. The main body was not horribly done; there was just enough detail to make it look good without the viewer feeling like they couldnât understand all the parts. The little details were what really tipped the scales for the picture.

Hectichermit: Without the words this would be extremely confusing. The squiggly lines over-lapping each other could quickly confuse the viewer. It would not be a bad sketch before the actual picture, but for the picture itself the picture was really light. It was hard to tell what was meant to go where. No idea what was on the right side of the picture, at all? Next time work on darkening it a little better so it is easier to understand, and letting the viewer be able to understand it without the words would greatly increase your drawing skills. Better luck next time.



Thatâs all Killersup could put together. If Cenere would like to choose the next theme, or allow Killersup to do it, is up to Cenere.
