I tried finding your piece to refresh my memory. If I was negative, I apologize. Although I didn't expect my piece to win, I was a bit bitter over some of the exclusions that, in my opinion, should have been semi-finalists before most that were chosen. But I did the wrong thing by taking it out on the latter. And it's not even that I thought they were bad pieces so much as ill-fitting in terms of the subject matter and style of the filmmaker (though we were dealing with a comic book when it comes down to it, and approaching the project from a cinematic perspective turned out to be a fault of mine). Once again, I'm sorry if I projected any of that onto you. 

Thanks for reaching out.

...There were some great pieces that didn't make it through, as is almost always the case. It was a somewhat flawed contest in terms of what direction the actual style after the cover was going to look like, would the characters look exactly like the actors from the movie, etc., but I think dA's gotten a bit better since then at defining these kinds of things in newer contests, but there will always be those few things that seem borderline acceptable or not. Very frustrating when one works so hard on a piece! I haven't really entered any contests in a couple years because of finishing college (Dec 2012 grad), but I've tried to peek at new ones that have come through. Some exciting ones, too!...

...I accept all input on my work, so definitely no hard feelings about it. After dozens of critiques in art studio and graphic design courses, you learn to either love or hate all feedback... :XD:

...I hope you may have a chance to look at some of my work sometime. My older work is a bit random, but I hope to upload more recent work soon, since it's been over a year now since graduating. Just been having too much fun doing everything else!...

I know what you mean dude (sort of). For me, I'm a bit behind on my art in general, as I've been writing a novel the past... three years now. I began a screenplay after graduating college in 2010 which took a year, but then I thought "okay, now what?" and decided to adapt it into a novel (movie studios won't give anything original a chance unless it was a novel first and has a built-in fanbase, so that's the logic behind this). Anyway, I'm still cranking on that and it's going well (at the moment). The problem is, I'm spending all my time writing rather than drawing, and I've barely uploaded anything the past two years. 

The one thing I look forward to is when I'm done with the first draft -- then while I tweak and edit things on the side, I'll enter the illustration phase and hopefully produce a ton of artwork to upload as a byproduct. I so wish I could be there already... 

I'll check more of your work out. I went through your gallery the other day and saw some good stuff. You have a great diversity from what I see, and I look forward to recent works.

...You're welcome... :thumbsup:

...Wow, we missed out on meeting. It's a bit of an awkward photography community around here, so sadly I don't get to run into many others, and my main focus is in graphic design anyway so unfortunately I have less time, money, etc. for photographic endeavors...

...I also poorly neglect my DeviantART account, but that's slightly easier to remedy...
