Journal Entry: Fri May 29, 2009, 6:27 PM

Hey, Guys n Galz, just want to let you know:

I did NOT forget about the features!

lol, i just have been somewhat busy recently, especially the last few weeks, and i still somewhat am, but i did DEFINITELY NOT forget about it!!! So, all of you, that commented on my last journal will still be featured, like i promised! Its just so TOUGH to pick only three deviations your galleries, because all of the stuff in your galleries is so friggin cool! It gets even tougher, since many of you submit artwork of different media, and i want to feature you all with the artwork that reflects and presents you and your "craft" the best. I already made a few decicisons on some of the work i will feature, so i guess it wont take too long til i put up a new journal with all of your works in it!  Oh, and as a little surprise (and to celebrate my 10.000th pageview as well as my 29th birthday which was in April), i will also feature you all in a News Article On the deviantART NewsBoard as well, parallel to my journal-features! :party:

So yeah, i sort of gave away my own surprise for you here, but who cares, haha!

But before i can do that, i should go and renew my sub, haha! Seems its running out this month! So, on monday i wil lgo and transfer some Money to my PayPal so i can get me a new one and wont be sub-less =)

I will really try to be quick with the features, but since i joined that contest, i am really quite flooded with messages! Which makes a nice transition to the next topic of this Journal:

the "Bring Your Vision To Life" Contest by Wacom and deviantART!

Well, the voting for the "Community Award" is still open for me, and if you like any of my entries, and ONLY THEN (!!!), it would be frigging great if you FAV´d it, as it would count as a Vote for it! So, that´d definitely be nice! And if you want, maybe show it to a friend, hm? LOL, am i FISHING FOR VOTES here or what ?? XD XD XD

Nah, seriously:

I didnt make it to the Semi-Finals, which is neither a big surprise nor a big hit for me or soemthing, because i didnt do it for "teh Prizes ... :drool:" =) It was just a whole lot of fun to create all these entries (they all were pretty much LAST MINUTE!!!), and the reactions were really OVERWHELMING!

I got more comments and FAVES in the last two weeks than in the entire LAST YEAR!!!

I had (and still have!) a hell of a good time reading through all your ncie comments, critics, replies and all, its really unbelievable! I met so many interesting persons, great artists and new friends through this contest, that i consider that that the greatest Prize of all!!!

Thank you all so much, whether youre known or unknown, an old friend or a new one, whether you left a comment or just fav´d... It all means SO MUCH to me!!!

Thanks to every single one of you out there, for so much support such nice comments and EVERY SINGLE FAV!!!

Really, it means the WORLD to me, and i had such a fucking BLAST submitting these entries and talking to all of you out there! (and a lot of all your messages are still to be replied to!)

Really, i love this community, and every single one of you out there =)

Thanks, friends!

So, dont forget to VOTE (:P), enjoy dA, and follow da TRiG´z first commandment:


TRiG, out!

I wasn't very wowed by the majority of the finalists selected, but then, I wasn't expecting a fair contest from the get go. :roll: But what can ya do, eh?

:blowkiss: We all love you too, Trig!
TRiGGER80 Featured By Owner May 29, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, it depends.

A lot of the artwork selected reall is stunning and makes me go "WOW", but i was aware right from the start, that the ones with the most chances would most likely be digital Paintings, because it IS a Wacom contest.

that makes sense on one hand, on the other had it means: the person participating most likely DOES already HAVE a Tablet, haha!

and yeah, i can imagine that quite a few people might even be asking, what a 3D-guy would need a tablet for, but theres a lot of uses for one in that area, too. (For example, Software like zBrush by Pixologic or Autodesk´s Mudbox are "sculpting" programs, with which you can really SCULPT your models / characters using a tablet. Texture painting is another ncie application for a tablet, painting weights for skinning... Even for Photographers a Tablet is of great use!) .

Well, what surprises me, is, that noone really posted a WRITTEN submission about "Good and Evil" for that contest O_o

Well, it wasn't that I think the finalist images weren't beautiful or well done, I just think most of them were stale and completely lacking on creativity. Apparently that's what the judges were looking for. :shrug: I had already assumed digital art would take the forefront since it is a contest for a Wacom tablet. It wouldn't make any sense otherwise. It's that "popularity vote" that's really nagging at me.

Huh... You know, I didn't even think of that. Did they say written entries were allowed? :confused:
TRiGGER80 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, sure they were...

It read "any media"...

Oh, and ncie new Avatar you have there!
