Welcome to the Art Skills Competition.

As always, there are a few rules that needs to be followed for proper judging, viewing and general fairness.

Competition Rules
- All major parts of the entry must be original material, unless otherwise stated. Heavy references, sources and other visible influences should be credited as per normal forum courtesy.
- Submissions must follow the current theme to be judged, and must be drawn for that theme specifically. You cannot submit something you drew prior to the theme being announced
- Please do not post entries larger than 670 pixels in width. If your art is larger, post a thumbnail and link to the larger version.
- Artists cannot win in subsequent rounds, but are allowed to enter said rounds.
- Entries can be drawn in any medium available.

lol, that was a scanned drawing, and I took some time fiddling with brightness and contrast too :P my scanner just hates my faint drawing style. Or vice-versa.

(yes, I see that sonic boom in your picture, Cen, but... mach 35???).

Don't doubt Jules Verne. Otherwise I will be drawing some Jorge Luis Borges next time. Or in the style of Giger.

@Gabaloth:
A matter of persistence and stubborness. That was twice a bunch of low brightness, high contrast. It might not look good, but it is visible.

Hmm, a fine time to have put away the scanner, it seems.

How does one sign up to do the judging around here? My entry wasn't even counted! It was so sci-fi, it was an ACTUAL invisibility device, embedded in this very thread.

Regardless, I am interested in taking on the mantle for a little while, so next time it's needed I call dibs.

Also, relief. I can work with that, I hope. (Everything I tried to make before is now in the trash; couldn't make a good idea come to life @~@)

You ask. Probably goes something like this:

Thoad: Hey Stroppy McHorseguy! Can I judge?
Strop: Sure! I need someone to judge and you asked first.
Thoad: It was really that easy?
Strop: Uhh, ya.
Thoad: OK then.

Nooo, no way. It's more like this.

Thoad: "You strawples can I judge this biznasty?"
Strop: "Sure Thoadsy Woadsy so-much-cooler-than-Me-sy! I love you so much I have no possible choice than to say yes, and possibly kiss your feet."
Thoad: "You may, but I wouldn't like it."
Strop: "I will resist the temptation, but-"
Thoad: "But?"
Strop: "Kk u must nao jujj all da ASCs"
Thoad: "What, but I-"
Strop: "HUAHAHAEHAUHAUEHAHE NEEEIGH"
Thoad: "FATE WHY HATH THOU CONDEMNEST ME"

At the risk of starting something here that is not art-related, this is how it really would go:

Thoad: "HEY HEY I AM SO AWESOME AND LOUD LEMME JUDGE THIS SHIZZ"
Strop: "You seem like a liability. Can you make it every week without disappearing for five months due to teenage angst?"
Thoad: "FOOK U I HAET MY LIEF BAWWWWWWW"

Strop: well I guess that was better than telling him he has no aptitude for judging.

---

But in all seriousness, if you think you can commit to doing it reliably every week for a significant period of time (like more than a month), then you are more than welcome to give it a burl.

Sixteenth, eh? I have an idea in mind and should be able to get it done by then assuming college doesn't decide to start eating all of my time like the glutton I know it can be. If I don't have time for the pretty version (if I can even get it pretty) I'll submit, if nothing else, stick people sighing in relief due to making this deadline.

Ummm...have you seen me in Cen's art threads before? Usually we are talking about art and then go off totally.

Stroples, I am hurt.

When I leave for a considerable time it is usually because things aren't being interesting, it isn't because of teenage angst.

But, if you find that I do not have any aptitude for telling what is or isn't good, I suppose I'll leave you for the snobbery that is judging.

*sniff*

Okay thoad, if this is reason enough for you to retain an interest in the forums so that you'll judge on a regular basis, then you can take over after this round finishes.

I actually haven't reached any conclusions on your aptitude to judge as I can't remember seeing you in action, so I hope you know I was joking. You know, seeing as I assumed you were joking with your post, especially what with that me saying you were like the coolest guy ever and let me kiss your feet.

....oh! Yeah, that doesn't happen. Not at all >_>

But yeah, I have the thread bookmarked so I can guarantee that I will not disappear from the forums on a massive whim.

So, I didn't read the judging post until just now, and my idea had more to do with the sculpting technique than the emotion. Would that still fly, or should I try to incorporate the latter somehow?
