Hi I sent my entry but it's one pixel short (599 pixels) and I'm afraid that you won't accept it since it's the last day ;^;
Is that okay?

Hello, I have a question about the entries.
Do our drawings have to be super realistic or can we make them abstract and cartoonish?
Reply
:iconambr0:
AmBr0 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2016
They don't have to be super realistic at all. They only need to be recognizable :thumbsup:

Hi AmBr0!
This sounds like a fun contest!
I actually have two animal portraits I had done before for a friend in colored pencils. The thing is, I had to do some retouches (not painting wise, but I mean contrast, and stuff like that) on Photoshop, cause the scanned images weren´t super great. Is it possible to enter them anyway? (I can link them for you to see)
Thanks! :-)

:iconambr0:
AmBr0 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2016
Hello, Great! :thumbsup:
As long as it is contrast, levels, white balance adjustment... and not digital painting or distortion I'm totally fine with it. I even encourage to do what you said.

Oh, man, I was quite sure that the deadline is today...
Sorry I forgot! :(
My painting wasn't dry and it's not completely finished, anyway. But, thanks to this contest I had a nice idea for painting, so thanks for that! At this point I can only wish luck to everybody who participated. :)
