Hello and welcome!

This is a spin-off of the original GFX Art Battle, but with some updated rules and changes. Please make sure to read the rules before entering, since they have been modified. Good luck, we look forward to seeing some creative artistic entries!

Competition Rules
1. Must be hand drawn, either on paper or in a program. It can then be manipulated in an graphics program. But unoriginal artwork cannot be used as the main focus. Copyrighted images cannot be used. All pieces containing copyrighted images will be disqualified.
2. Submissions must follow the current theme that has been chosen by a moderator for that week. If you submit more than one piece, please clarify which one you would like to be judged.
3. If your image is larger than 600 pixels wide, please provide a link to the image instead of posting it in the forum. Otherwise, the image will be cut off.
4. Artists cannot win in subsequent weeks. You can still submit, but if you won the week before, you cannot get first place again the next week.
5. After the deadline, a moderator will pick the winner, and they will be awarded a 25 AP award.

Wow, Cenere, That was harsh.

I was off judge duty. And he has been bugging Zophia and I for 4 days now. I did appologize for oversleeping, seemingly he did not think I need sleep.
Overslept this morning, and day has not been too good, so not going to appologize before he does.

I was off judge duty.

How could I guess that??

And he has been bugging Zophia and I for 4 days now.

Hey! If I was bugging you you could just say it and I would stop!

I did appologize for oversleeping, seemingly he did not think I need sleep.

I need sleep too, but I really don't like waiting...

Overslept this morning, and day has not been too good, so not going to appologize before he does.

I apologize then. Sorry about all that mess up there.

Okay, now I know I'm not gonna win... I never do...

You have been asking to know the winners since the 28th, Ogt. And have been yelling at Zophia because she would not judge on her own.
You might not like to wait, but there is a deadline and you should respect it.
And I apologize for being rude. As a judge I will not tell who win and who does not, and I have to add that everyone has a chance. Therefore it was overly harsh and stupid of me to use my position and possible knowledge to bring you down, especially as this was done in anger, which is uncivilized and only done by primitive beings.

Okay, I suggest we shake hands, turn the page over and wait for the deadline (even though it was yesterday). And I haven't been yelling at Zophia because she wouldn't judge! I just asked her if she had an idea on who the winners would be.

"I hate you, Zophia" in capitals is considered by many as yelling. But yes. *offers hand*

I considered giving Ogt2 an official warning for shouting at people that he hated them... Since, you know, that's pretty much flaming.

I honestly don't care about you being impatient, Ogt2. We have lives, we can't always make the deadline on something that in the end is just for fun. We try, but occasionally it just doesn't work.

I think Cen apologized enough (and needed) in the post above (or further up if I've been ninja'd)...

Okay, now I know I'm not gonna win... I never do...
Your entries has been in my top three a few times, so please continue trying.

Delays happen when delays happen.

Actually the deadline did pass when it did, judging was just delayed.

Let's move on now, shall we?

Lol....Shhh Crimson or I might assign you to judge the Pokemon Comp. one week so you know how it feels...!


You act like I have never judged a competition before.The only difference was when I stalled the judging it was either because of not enough entries or computer issues.

Let's move on now, shall we?


That seems like a good idea.I just came back from school to see a short argument go on and then its long aftermath.Strange how much can happen when your not looking...

Z: It seems impatience is considered a virtue in some places...
C: Well, at least we got an apology.
Z: Yeah... Anyway.
C: Yes, winner from last week: Thoad.

http://fc46.deviantart.com/fs45/i/2009/082/f/4/Life_Without_Words_by_Thoadthetoad.jpg
Z:*pokes link in IM session* This is not clickable. :< *finds entry elsewhere*
Ah yes. Brain, was it?
C: Or head... Now, good thing he did not go for the merit this week, since he used writing...
Z: Oh yes, writing. In the 'no words' theme. Genious~ Still nice entry, though. But I don't think it needed the text on it to support it's - value.
C: Lessee how many fall for that, huh...
And on to the judging!
First place:

Z: Choooooolokiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid~ [/fake operea voice]
http://i534.photobucket.com/albums/ee348/Cholokid34/withoutfacescopy.jpg?t=1237850580
C: Oh God, my ears....
Z: :P
C: *mumble* Nice depressive one. They seem to win with depressive mods. Not that any of us are depressed. That often.
Z: ... I'm not gonna comment on that.
It's a good entry, though. Still don't see the link Strop and Thoad immediately drew, though...
C: Which I seem to have missed. But nice drawing, could not have done it better myself.
Z: Hmm... Split second place, in no order:

C: Necro and JereN - Because we cannot agree.
http://i415.photobucket.com/albums/pp231/necromancerlord/ants2-1.jpg?t=1237945932
Z: At least we can agree on not excluding them from the top three~
Yay, pheromones.
C: She likes insects. A lot. Anyway, not that fond of this one, but it looks nice, good idea and well, speaking without words.
Z: What was it I said when we were discussing it before... "Pheromones. Found it cool that he chose to take that approach. Kind of the same way as if someone had made a drawing of people communicating with sign language or however else one can communicate without words... And insects are cool, this reminded me of a book I read..."
Communication in alternative ways is fascinating, basically...
C: Yes. Can I go on?
Z: Yup.
C: JereN's half of the second place:

http://img217.imageshack.us/img217/469/nowords.jpg
Which is another one of those I like for the concept and strength in motive.
Z: *nodnod*
C: > >... Also, really nice use of paint.
Z: Yes. Paint entries is not a bad thing... Though saving as a .bmp image might do him good next time.
C: Yes. And there is no third place for you, just for the sake of creating a little order in this.
Z: Bwahahahahaha~
C: Never said better. As for the rest, procedure done as every time.

Zega
http://i480.photobucket.com/albums/rr165/96Zega96/UsingWords.png
Z: Uhm... Yes... Not that it was a rule... Just the theme...
C: Though we did decide to not let anyone use writing win. So pretty much just stupid to complain, Zega, when you bring it on yourself.
Oh, and... First words?
Z: First words?
C: "Gaga Gogo"... I knew thought I would say that in public...
Z: Lol.
C: Onwards and downwards! *points up in a heroic way, then finds the next picture*

ALT!
http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/1248/anotherentry.jpg
Z: I honestly don't understand that one. Plus, it has words.
C: I do > >... I think. Like documents where the words are striked out for people not to see what stood there, leaving only the less dangerous information?
Z: Ahhhhhhhhhhh. Well... If it's that, that makes sense. I think.
C: Yup. But it still has words.
Z: It does.
C: *awkward silence* Uhm, then we got... *fishes up drawing from pile*

Gantic
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v226/blackcairn/AG/AGscreenshot.jpg
Z: No writing^^ Still kinda wish he'd have done the tongue thing though.
C: Would have made more sense to me. I think. Would have appealed more to my macabre feeling than anything else.
Z: Lack of understanding chosen symbols?
C: ... Yes.
Z: Aha~ So...
C: ...

DrSexyPepper
http://i565.photobucket.com/albums/ss100/Chrisc211/PacmanAffair.jpg
Z: It's amusing~ VGcats have spoiled everything Pacman for me, though.
On a side-note, how many debuts were there this round?
C: Hm, yes. And JereN and DrSexyPepper, I think. I am somewhat familiar with the rest, I have to say. So yeah.
Z: Okies~
C: And nothing to add. Devastating.
Z: I shall use "tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiired" as an excuse.
C: Fine.

The "King" Ryan
http://i296.photobucket.com/albums/mm193/kingryanv/nowords.jpg
Z: Yes... There really is no words for that, at least not from me.
C: Somehow, the middle frame, left guy reminds me of Sasquatch.
Z: Could it be the red eyes?
C: MayhFOR THE LOVE OF GOD!! .. Ahem. Mayhaps.
Z: Uhmmmmmkay. Moving on now...
C: Four to go.

Fst
http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb19/fst6/WTF.jpg
Z: ^^ I like that one~ There's plenty of words, though~
C: Yes. Reminds me of Sasquatch as well. The Hair theme and all?
Z: Hmm, maybe a bit?
C: Might just be unconscious nagging about the next fragment of the MWT. There is a great chance of it.
Z: Okay~ *sleepy yawn*
C: Hmm... Better get the real Sasquatch, then.

Crimson
http://i530.photobucket.com/albums/dd349/crimsonblade55/NoWords.png
Z: Lol. Yes, the real Sasquatch, being mauled by PS~
C: Smudge tool is an evil friend to have...
Z: It is indeed~ Occasionally. I think I know where crimson got his idea for this one~
C: Your drawing?
Z: He responded to it~
Fits the theme okay, though.
C: Hmm, yes. Which leaves us with the nonconsensual sex drawing.

Strop
http://i438.photobucket.com/albums/qq105/strawpony/stroptacet.jpg
Z: >_> You have to mock me with that one now?
C: Not mocking, just friendly teasing. Because you will not hurt me for being cheeky like my other friends...
Z: O.o;
C: I am cheeky a lot, if we have to judge from the black marks. Anyway, Strop, the guy everyone seemed to think would win.
Z: *blinks*
C: And it looks good, just not good enough. Especially if you do not know what the nenchiss is going on. But well, dreams of a better time, I guess?
Z: Maybe... Sorry, I kinda zoned away from the judging. Trying to figure out how the fudge our toll laws work. I want my toy. :<
C: Uhm... Okay... Well, better than "Do they hurt you!?!"... Anyway, the last of our contestants this week, who had to wait until know to get his comment:

Ogt
http://img300.imageshack.us/img300/215/image2z.png
Z: Is it impatience?
C: Huh?
Z: The entry? I think it's a really good attempt at a wordless comic, I... It just sort of lost me.
C: And slightly blurred..
Z: A bit.
C: Not his best.
Anyway, time for the theme?
Z: Yes. I wonder how many noticed it in the title...
C: Nooooneee!!

Deadline: 6th of April
Theme: Countries
