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.

I'm thinking about taking my entry out of the contest. Weeks ago, I asked if every single entry in the contest was going to be deleted, since they said "deviations will not be returned", and I actually really like my entry and a lot of my watchers do too. It has over 400 favorites on it.

And the lack of communication from the judges has been very frustrating. Honestly I don't care about who wins any more, I just want to know if all the entries will be removed afterwards. I just wish someone could give me an answer. ;_;

They won't remove the entries. Not the winning, not the losing. Check any old contest they've had. It's all still up there (if the deviant itself didn't remove it)

Friends, I think that all you have to be patient, but rather to the fact that smeritsya here nothing ever come =) continue to participate in other competitions, and the result of the current time to appear on its own =) unless of course the organizers themselves about him have not forgotten = )

Even though we STILL don't know the winners, everyone has done a really god job. NO joke.
I've seen some things done with make-up that I've never seen. Very inspiring.

Also, since we all did SUCH a good job, it's safe to say we deviants are obviously dark and morbid.

*Thumbs up, everyone!*

IMO if you don't want to decide on a winner(s) then you shouldn't have a contest.
