Okay. I hate myself. Let me just get that out of the way.
I totally misread the rules and have been working my ass off on Fennekin's evolutionary line, not Chespin's. I had just finished everything and was about to send my entry into Fenneking when I re-read the rules and realized I ****ed up.
I'm so sorry to have wasted your time, I am dropping out of the contest.
Just letting you know I'm turning my work in as is. I never got around to making a black and white piece, and since Fenneking didn't get back to you I might as well just go by the original set of rules. Good luck to you!
And btw, Fenneking never got back to me about the color requirement, so I ended up coloring my piece anyway. I saved a black and white version of it too though, just in case. So as long as you have two versions, you'll be save for the rules.
Thanks for letting me know- I've already colored my piece, though. That said, I was this close to VMing you to just drop out and hand you the trophy xD Mine looks god awful, I think, but I worked really hard on it. I guess I wouldn't mind redoing them in black and white, though...to ensure a fair battle.
I haven't submitting my entry for the art battle yet. ;w; But hopefully you haven't either! Considering that it's just you and I, I decided to message Fenneking to see if he's willing to drop the color requirement for us! I figured it would be silly to try to force color into our pieces if we're already well matched in medium, you know?
Just so you know, I talked to Dero and Fenneking and the art battle is still on! I wasn't sure if it was still going to happen since no one else entered and I couldn't get in touch with Fenneking at first, but yeah, it's still happening and the entry deadline is still on the 21st.
Looks like it's going to be a one-on-one battle between you and I. >;D
Ooooh don't you hate it when you type an entire message and you accidentally click something and have to start all over. My life right now. Infuriating.
How exciting! I bet you'll be tossing out super impressive images like it ain't no thing. What kind of stuff are you getting? Like a fancy tablet and program? And right, I'm just impatient D; Sometimes won't draw because I don't have the tools I need to perfect a piece readily available. I waste a lot of ideas that way :c
Yeah, I'm so lucky to have just crossed that bridge and had the extra resources to pursue this. All of my money went into some serious top of the line equipment, so I'm super excited to get started! But I have a long way to go with developing my own digital style. But don't worry, you'll get there in time too. It's not like you can just turn off being an artist, you know? :p
Isn't it frustrating? I'd be all over a tablet if I could afford one. Then I wouldn't have to worry so much about presentation quality and could add color if I felt inclined. Shoo. I keep telling myself "one of these days," but investing in my hobby cannot be a priority right now 0;
Oh no worries!! I appreciate your honesty, and I'll be sure to keep your words in mind as I finish the piece. And all my other unfinished pieces. n___n; You weren't too brutal, promise :p
