Congrats Fahrija!!!

I thought your image warranted at least an HM as well... oh well. It was a heck of a competition and you certainly deserved the community award!

See you in the next one man!

Hey, Fahrija! Congrats on the community award! I too felt you should have gotten at least equal credit for your actual painting, but hey, there's always next time too! -mike

Many thanks for your great posts buddies
In terms of the comunity-award > I´m surpised if you believe or not I still can´t
believe. Sometimes it took me much more time to find the right words when writing posts
rather than painting a scetch. [the online-dictionary always very close to me > without
it I would have surrender after a week] Thanks again.


Hey squibbit - you know how to make people smile

Hi ken - I thought the same vice versa but it´s like mike said. There is allways a next
time. Thank you both.

Thank you Dimi and send my regards to all the beautiful greek women

Cliff - you´re welcome. Meet you in the next one.

Hey Tommy - your image is a killer - thats why it is at this point where it is now.
great work and congrats again. There are so many works which deserved hm. I´m very
happy not to be the decision maker > It would have broke my neck .
I just can repeat - It was an adventure and a pleasure to be an eyewitness of your
incredible 20hr-painting-marathon. I wouldn´t believe if I hadn´t watched it myself.

hey paul back in town! Thanks for your kind words - I would only had be to pleased to see
your version of the composition. Meet you next time maybe on the same area.

Monsit, many thanks. I have to give back compliments your whole work is true inspiration.
Congrats again. see you in the painter/photoshop section.

Blaz.....that is honorable mention Thanks my friend.

my little epilogue

Very special thanks to Michael (nuclearman) - your comments were more than just helpfull.
And I´m sure your finished picture would have changed the current ranking in the top 7.

Also many thanks to Gerado - thanks for support

Additional thanks to the 3d people who dropped into my thread very often as I recognized.

And last but not least I would like to quote a post-reply I´ve read during the challenge
which I very much liked .

The internet has changed everything for us lone artists. Before the internet, you really didn't have a lot of chances to socialize with your own kind.

The truth is, I never expect to win in these challenges--not that I don't believe in myself, but because I know my style and the kind of stuff I tend to portray appeals only to a smaller minority of people. I know many of you also participate knowing that you'd never win, but that's not why we do it--we do it for the love and for getting involved. Our actions is what builds and maintains this great community--if we don't take part, it'll just dry up and wither away.

See you around in this community

Congrats for the comunity award! You truly deserve it, for me your comments were always well thought and constructive. It's a shame that you didn't get any honorable mention at least, cause i really liked your piece. See you next time .
