I was sad not to see yours in the semifinalists. besides myself, your piece was the one i was rooting for, it seemed like the judging in general was silly as hell, all my favorite pieces didnt make. I still think this was a very awesome piece.

Thanks! I was disappointed not to make it at least to the semi-finalists, but there were so many quality entries, it must have been real hard to make a decision.

IDk. i didnt think there were that many good ones in there..they were bland and its like all these different styles were picked for diversity and not for skill or creativity.

Yeah, I get what you're saying. Who knows how they judge those contests. It's not the first time it happens to me. There was even a previous contest for which I didn't win either, but one of the winners shared a part of his price with me cause he felt I should have won. Later, my illustration for that contest was selected as a Daily Deviation (a user had suggested it because she strongly felt I should have won). But, for some reason, it wasn't good enough to make it to the top 3 in the contest.

After each contest I enter, I tell myself that I'm done with contests on DA, but every time there's a cool one, I can't help giving it a try anyway. But I can't complain much, that's what a contest is after all: just a few winners and a lot of deception for many many others.

I take it like this - enter to learn, not to win. If you win...then it's all bonus on top :)

You won in my book man :| Cannot truly believe you didn't get into top 25. But I guess this is how it goes for all of us :) Still a really strong piece and well worth a place in your portfolio.

Is there some sort of process sheet you can show? Very nicely done! One of the few in which I see the overused bow and climbing gear, but it fits nicely as a composition and works overall. GL on the contest and congrats on your freelance career (sorry took a peek at your DA page:)

Very nice Yannick! A lonely solitary look at a Born Survivor. Lots of inward emotion.

What? Photoshop retards? But... the artist clearly painted this digitally as well.
Oh what's the point of arguing, I'm on deviant art for god's sakes.

Yannick, this is great, you handled the water very well, but I find the rock textures to be a little too distracting. I would of toned them down personally.

oh sorry your highness, your to good for deviant art. im not a huge fan of the site bug it like to plant seeds and its a good way to do it. photoshop retards are the hundreds of people who flock to these competitions to submit their "art" and end up creating an image that is the exact opposite of what the site asked for. they usually use photoshop and do a horible job. i am fully aware that this image was created through photoshop and my original comment, to the artist, remains. think before we type and this doesn't happen, K?
