For details on the contest see Contest Banner - Closed by mjranum-stock

The contest closes at midnight tomorrow. You have until 00:01 on the 18th to get your notes in to my inbox.

So far it looks like there are over 600 entries!!

Right now I have 347 notes in my inbox and have gotten about a dozen Emails. Don't worry if you don't see your artwork up on the entries pages, yet - if you've sent me a note with a link to your image, then you're OK.

I have gotten notes from people who forgot to send me their links or emails without people's links or DA names. If I can't figure out what your submission is, I'll disqualify you for failure to follow directions.

After the 17th it'll take me a little while to sort through everything and complete all the entry pages. Then my judges and I will come up with the final list, and then vote-off on the winners. That'll take a while - there's a lot of beautiful work here!

Once the contest is done, I will resume posting stock. I have a whole bunch of ass-kicking stuff in store for you, including Rael Cohen as a pirate wench, some more cyborg ninjas, death rides a pale tricycle, and more!

Thanks to everyone who has participated!

(PS - because of the way DAs note system works, it always presents me the most recent first, which means I tend to work in reverse order. So those of you who got your entries in a long time ago, check your outbox and see if it's still hanging in my inbox unread. If so - I'll get to it. I promise.)

:omg: OVER 600 ... someone should make a movie about this amazing challenge and how you withstood the onslaught virtually single handed, you could call it "600" ... oh, wait, I think that has been done (sort of) :giggle:!!!

You are a brave man to take on such an awesome job. Your popularity is the direct result of the wonderful work you do (and being a great person to boot); each entry is a tribute to you and your wonderful models.

A great big :hug: for all the work you have done and still have left to do!

Good luck to everyone! There is SOOOOO much incredible talent out there; seeing all this beauty gives me a feeling of hope; even with all of the terrible stuff that goes on around the world, this much talent, positive energy and sharing proves that it can also be a gracious and astonishing place to live! Three cheers for DA and MJ!!!

:love: :devart:
