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.

C: Okay then.. So we got some drawing to judge. People seemed to be rather mad at you for this one, Zophia.
Z: Do they? Where?
C: I think it was Ogt who complained last Monday. For some reason.
Z: *shrugs*
C: *puts book aside* Anyway, last week's winner was Strop, the rockstar ninja *coughcough*

http://i438.photobucket.com/albums/qq105/strawpony/wtfdraw.jpg

Z: Oh yes. He showed me his inspiration for that one. *hides a giggle*
C: Do I even want to know...
Z: *shows Cen*
C: Oh, that... ... I knew that! *facepalm*
Z: *chuckles* Also, we have some judge artwork, which will be displayed now because it will otherwise be forgotten:
http://i428.photobucket.com/albums/qq1/Cerene_Cerine/fail2.jpg
Still can't draw beards? You're definitely getting better at them.
C: I dunno. People tell me I am, I still think I fail at them. I should have added a hand, a butt and a background to that picture, then it would have been complete fail..
Z: ... You're getting better, mkay?
Now, first place.
C: Pfft, sure... Yeah, winner, to much suprise:

Thoad.
http://fc68.deviantart.com/fs45/i/2009/079/5/9/Art_Comp___WTF_by_Thoadthetoad.jpg
Z: Yus, the Thoadling. I like it actually not for it's humor, but because it's a good viewpoint... Never say can't?
C: I really want to see his expression now.. Really amusing expression, pretty much what I like best about it. To me, the first frame could have been the picture itself, and I would still have found this terribly amusing.
Z: *nod* And good way of incorporating the theme literally, though I'm not so fond of that being done.
C: I think he found that out last time. On the other hand... I will just smile at the expressions, and that is that.
Z: Yes, the expressions~ Really starting to like his Nolan character. here
C: Oh no, is Sasquatch getting competition?? ...
Z: Uh... Yeah.

Onwards.
Second place: Gantic.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v226/blackcairn/AG/SelfPortraitSmeared.jpg
C: Yes...
Z: You call it creepy, I call it well made. Mhm.
C: Shh! Darn, I think they heard it... Anyway, not sure what I think of this one, really.
Had it been something with memories or something, and a sand structure around it, it would have been awesome, like the sand blowing away or covering the image... As it is now, I just... Lack to see the theme come forth. But that is Gantic's trademark, I guess. On the limit to something else.
Z: Gantic's stuff generally seem to need any level of interpretation. Be it wrong or not, I simply see this as an expression of the lack of ability to get himself on canvas. Which suits the theme pretty well.
C: Hmm, probably... Oh well, we better end it here, since it just end up like the prejudging discussion.

Third place is Necro:
http://i415.photobucket.com/albums/pp231/necromancerlord/censored.jpg
Z: And I say: LOL! But you just did exactly what I told Thoad off for doing last week. *shuns* Still amusing, though. And I should probably ban you for posting such an image. :P
C: Yes. So sorry to Thoad, but at least his other entry was better, when he got pushed a little. Hmm, I have a dislike of the picture, solely because of that X...
Z: Oh really? But... That's the picture part about it. Why did you vote it for the top three if you dislike it?
C: Because the concept of it is perfectly fitting for the theme.
Z: Okay~
C: ... And the rest:

Z: Oh yes, that one^^
C: Runner up for the winners.
Z: It's nice~
C: A little odd in some of the lines, though.
Z: Maybe a bit~

Peter
http://i690.photobucket.com/albums/vv265/Peter213/Semttulo.jpg
C: Hmm... I have one thing to say: Nice tried.
Z: Agree.
C: Actually another runner up for the winners.
Z: Good place to point out that the winning three is not our common top-three, but a merge-and-fold of what we can agree upon liking.
C: Or agree upon not liking. Usually giving a lot of arguments behind the scene.
Z: Which no one will ever knooooooooow~~~ *mysterious* It showed too much in our first judging. Carry on now?
C: Yes. Hm, let us take..

Crimson
http://i530.photobucket.com/albums/dd349/crimsonblade55/Icantdrawthat.png
Z: Sasquatch: WTF!? I CAN'T DRAW THAT!
Me: I can~~ But I won't. :P
C: I think that bunch at FA would like it, though.
Z: Nah, remember it says it has to be PG13.
C: I think a lot of people on FA are ignoring that rule...
Z: Well... Obviously.
Anyway, nice entry, continuing from the one last week~
C: Hmm, those mature content frames are just for show then.. Oh, yes, and I think Zophia hoped you had pulled that one, and would think up something else.
Z: ... Wait, what?
C: Uhm, you mentioned something about you being happy that he had used the entry he did last round?
Z: Just because I thought it would be a nice challenge for him to come up with something different, since his last entry would have fitted this theme? He came up with a continuation instead~
C: Uhm, yes. ... KR.

http://i296.photobucket.com/albums/mm193/kingryanv/squiggle.jpg
Z: ... Scary.
C: Pencilhead? Not as scary as many other heads. Pyramid head?
Z: Heh...
C: Oh well. Zega and his chinaman.

http://i480.photobucket.com/albums/rr165/96Zega96/Chinachina.jpg
Z: Dishonourable mention for racism.
C: It is Zega... I have seen him ask about many things, and talk about many things without actually knowing a lot about it. He has drawn a blueheaded jew for the Holiday armatars... Yeah...
Z: I know. :/
On with it...

Cholokid
http://i534.photobucket.com/albums/ee348/Cholokid34/whattf.jpg
C: Last but not least. Is that a shark?
Z: It looks like it?
C: I could draw that...
Z: On a random sidenote, I just wiki'd "drawer" and found out my teacher was apparently wrong when she said it's always the furniture and never the artist. Huh...
C: You learn something new every day.
Ready for declaring the next theme?
Can I do it?
Z: Sure, go ahead, since we agreed upon it earlier~
C: Yes!

Deadline: 30th of March/next Monday, as always.
Theme: No Words.


Z: *smiles and waves*
