So will Killersup be judging this week, or is he still in training?

You're still in training. Cen didn't tell you that? Oops... At any rate, I'll get some more stuff for you to judge and maybe, if you do well, you'll be judging in 2 or 3 rounds.

Cen hasn't told anyone anything, because Cen hasn't been online all weekend and ironically just got on now in time to see this.
But yeah, you kinda have to prove you got it, not just say you did and then go on to judge. Like, I don't know, getting a Master's degree, where you use two years on making papers on how you totally understand the classes you went to, and then write a thesis to further prove it and then get a job, where you check in books for people. I mean, judge art for this contest.

Anyway, I have to say one thing on the former judging, and I will ask you to all be patient with this and sorry it seems weird, but... The shapeshifters in my head got rather offended that you called one of them a dragon. They do not appreciate being associated or compared to dragons, as they are not dragons, even if they might look a bit like them. Also, "What made you think that? Was it the big wings? The scales? The slit pupil? The whole 'being made out of physical flesh?'" to quote the one from the picture. Also, he does believe it is like calling human beings 'tadpoles fresh out of the water', which is understandable somewhat, but doesn't make any sense to anyone but me anyway.
So... I guess you shouldn't do that, should I ever draw a shifter again...?
I don't know what the point was either, but what do I know, I am just sending the message along.

Anyway.
For this theme, which I am going to draw for, out of sheer procrastination and not doing my papers, I am going to co with yet another picture no one but me will get. However, without shifters this time around.
But, eh, not now.

To be honest, I don't know whether to laugh or cry. After reading the thing Zoph linked about the shapeshifter, I did kind of feel like the awards were handed out a little early, and I probably should have done some extra homework to find out what the shapeshifter was. Because of my overly enthusiastic stupidity with judging, I'll be sure to make sure what each piece is saying before I slap a judging on it. From my previous experience, I had learned that art should be drawn to certain specifications so that anyone who knows nothing about anything (like me) can take a glance at the piece and figure out hat it is. Now, Cen, if I haven't completely lost you yet, you can draw shapeshifters and any other concoctions you can think of and I'll do my best to figure out your mental poop...

                                              ...Wait, that's Gantic's job.

You know what I mean, I hope.

Indeed. And, well, the drawing itself is meta. The shifters are mainly meta because they are at least self aware when roaming my headspace (which allows them to rant at me...), which is not that often.

But, well, look forward to the Authority one, because it's going to be weird and... Weird, just weird. And my only idea, so hurray for that.

I didn't feel like I proved anything. You just were happy that I was being nice enough to judge for you. Am I special?

Well... Nobody else would judge... and you've judged the haiku contest a few times.

All in all, you weren't that bad.
