lol, Thx!

I entered the contest DA was having... didn't even place in the 100 semi-finalists, lol. One of the best contests I've seen as far as prizes go.

I appreciate the comment man.

It’s an on going trend for me. I’ve been rejected quite a lot the past few years… I’m thinking I need to rework how I do my art, change the style some or maybe the poses I choose.

Either way, the publishers aren’t digging my stuff; I always get the “We do not currently utilize your style in any of our projects”… lol. Which tells me a couple of things: One, my work isn’t strong enough to make them want to use my style, and two, maybe the style that I’m using currently isn’t that great to being with…

I have to laugh because I’m completely lost as to what I should do… Just keep drawing I suppose. :)

Okay, not to butter you up, but you are one of the best artist I know. I wouldn't even know how to begin giving you artistic advice. I don't have your skill or talent. I don't know man. I mean look at all the artist used by Privateer Press. Most of them are foreign and relatively unknown. They are good artist, but still. I don't know Matt. I'd hired you any day of the week.

I really love this! I know that it would of made the semi's except maybe they excluded it because of the Gears logo on her shoulder? I dunno....it's awesome. Check me out too, mr. [link] I don't have any idea about Gears story/lore/gameplay, so I probably violated all kinds of things.

The logo I used was approved in the rules... also several of the semi-finalists use it in their entries as well.

Seriously ? Yet another great submission that didnt get picked ? Howietzer awesome work ! DA Judges must of been drunk off thier asses when they judged this contest. Once again this contest should of been judged by the Gears of War staff only.
