In answer to question Element5, i didnt make it through bud. Im really bummed about the whole thing since i know a lot of the guys around here where following my progress and i just crashed and burned. Its not a total loss, i will definately finish it but now i can take my time, dont have to rush it and i can use it in my folio. Im pround of what ive done to some extent but it would have been REALLY nice to have got it in.

Bascially my story was that Thursday (this is all in adelaide time) i worked on it after work and i was up till about 5:00am friday morning, had 2hours sleep and went into work.

At work on firday things where kinda slow so i took the opportunity to work on it during the day...5:30pm friday hit work finished. Instead of deciding to go home after work and loose time with my 1hour drive back home i stayed at work and pushed on through the night on the image

By 2:00am i was really feeling out of it and wasnt necessarily as productive as i would like to have been...but i kept going. I knew 9:30am Saturday morning was the deadline so as i mentioned i wanted to keep going till the end until i knew for sure i wasnt going to be able to submit my final coloured work.

By 8:00am i know i was out of it...that was the clincher.

1hour and 30minutes left and i was kaput, i knew i wasnt going to make it. So thats it...sorry i didnt make it, i would have loved to have been in the comp. But i definatley realise now that i took too long to make some decisions and in the end that was my downfall.

I am still extremely glad that i was a part of the competition as i made some really great new friends, which i still hope to see around in these great forums. I am really looking forward to the next competition whatever it may be and i look forward to seeing more amazingly tallented people submiting their works and motivating/pushing each other to do better and be better.

I once again want to thank everybody who came by to take a look at my stuff, it was really appreciated. I want to wish everyone the best of luck in the comp whoever the judges choose, i know, will be fully deserving of the prize. Congrats to everybody who made it and goodluck.

SO in the end...i want to encourage everybody to keep drawing, keep painting keep doing whatever will make you better and smarter at doing the work you love. Have an great week and an excellent day...Catch you around the forums.

Thanks a lot mate...practically a neighbour? for sure... considering adelaide is so small, ive probably met you before but just havent realised it. You know how it is...the whole 6 degrees of separation thing. I have a friend, who knows a friend, whos friend knows a person and that person knows you. That kind of thing...LOL.

So yeah for sure, will definately keep in touch and when i do finish the image and im happy with it i will post i up in the 2D section. Thanks again bud... have a good one.

Hey Sketchfiend, yup, real sorry to hear, still it was great to have you in the competition, can't wait for the final image as usual, looking forward to it. Untill then, have a good one.
  06 June 2004
hey sketchfiend!!

Unlucky... it's a shame you couldn't be in with the judging!! I can really emapathise with you (i got my entry in with 1 minute 30 seconds remaining!!?) on the deadline, and realise it must have felt just terrible as you realised you couldn't make it.

I had quite a major crash 3 hours before the deadline and lost nearly an hour's work plus fifteen minutes with the actual crash. I was really struggling but just got it done. Although i would definitely have preferred to have another day to look at it with fresh eyes and make any changes...

I'm sure there'll be some more challenges ahead though... and next time we should probably 'pretend' the deadline is a week earlier than it actually is!!

But... like you say... it's been a great challenge and there's been some fantastic camaraderie. So it ain't all bad....?

I look forward to seeing something finished in one of the other forums...?

Thumbs down Thanks Mates!!

Thanks a lot guys i appreciate the sentiments , i will definately be planning much further ahead next time, and hopefully ill be in the next challenge from the start not from the middle.

I havent worked on the image since that fateful day but i will get back onto it tonight and chip away at it, take my time and do all the things i would have liked to do and that now i have the time, i can do.

You all definately have my vote, and not only because we are bascially comrades/friends but because i really like your style, skill, and thought that you put into your ideas. Congrats again. I wish i could share a BEER!!! with you all but with the forum upgrade they took away that particular smiley

So have a good one Guys and i will keep you updated. Thanks again, and i hope to catch you guys around.

Sorry to see you run out of time. The image is really starting to look exciting, the colours are fantastic.

Make sure you post the final sometime on this site.

Good luck with whatever industry you are lending your skills to.
