Chris - Thanks, but don’t be silly! If you’re entering these contests just to win the grand prize, you’re entering for the wrong reason. The right reasons, imho, are to push yourself to do as good a piece as possible, to to hopefully learn something along the way, to get one more piece you’re proud of for your portfolio, to meet new people also taking part in the Challenge, and to give and get feedback from them to help you and them all grow as artists. At least that’s why I enter the Challenges and all I hope to get out of them. There are only 2 prizes total and my shot and snagging one of them is slim, but I don’t care because I’ve just done one of my best paintings ever and that’s more important. It’s only 5 days left, if you’ve come this far, keep pushing yourself and finish what you started! You’ll be glad you finished it at least.
Neville - Of course I work fast, the contest is all over, what choice do I have?!? Anyhow, thanks!
Alwyn - No prob, you skipped all the boring parts and got to see the big finish instead!
Mark and Daniel - Yay, if you guys think it’s done then I must really be there. Thanks for your support throughout this whole thing, your constant presence has always been appreciated. :bowdown:
Anyhow, I’ll let this sit for a day or two and if no other crits come up (other than a shadow or two that I see that I want to fix that no one but me will notice!) then I’ll ship it. After I decide on a title. :rolleyes:
