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?
AmBr0's avatar
You are in! I'm not so picky... ;P

AmBr0's avatar
I'll add a journal with all the entries to vote for them. From Octorber 1 to 16th you'll be able to vote for your 3 choices among the 2 categories

And one more question: Where are the voters' choice comments supposed to go? Here under the contest or in the fave galleries or where? ^^

Hello, I have a question about the entries.
Do our drawings have to be super realistic or can we make them abstract and cartoonish?
AmBr0's avatar
They don't have to be super realistic at all. They only need to be recognizable :thumbsup:
