i know editing you face digitially can be hard, but it defeats the whole purpose really. cause it's hard in a way, but also too easy, too much of an 'overkill' so to speak. what happend to the old style of drawing and painting. too much technology, art will loose it's purpose, a computer will never be able to create an exact highly detailed replica of, "The Scream", "Mona Lisa" or any other famous art piece. I do believe in computer art,but i don't agree with, it should be under the category of art, computer art may only take a few days to create a standard piece of art, a painting may take a week or two, well a true dedicated artist will take their time. i believe true art must be like a fine wine, it will only be noticed and improved by time. all i'm really saying, digital art is too easy and should be in it's own category.

Congrats to the winners! Amazing pieces!

I do have one criticism, though.

From the official rules:

2. The Work (i) must be the exclusive original work of the entrant and made for the Contest;

According to the rules, the first place winner should not be eligible. Browsing through the 1st place winner's gallery, we see that this deviation was originally submitted 3 years ago. [link] submission date says June 2008. Seems that the entry was deleted and then resubmitted to be eligible for the contest. The exif data on the winning entry also lists June 2008. [link]

Not to be a critic of the work, it's incredible, just seems incredibly unfair that the rules don't apply.
