So for those of you who may have found their way to this page, most likely through an image of mine that you found in a group or in some random person's Favorites, you'll notice that I link to something called "PUMMEL" in most of my pieces. For those who've been reluctant to click the link, allow me to tell you what it is!
PUMMEL is a competition hosted on the PencilJack forums, where artists test their mettle against one another as a way to gain ArtXP and become Super Artists of DESTINY! Well, okay, nothing so video-gamish, but it's not far off. For some people, the best way to improve their craft is with a deadline, and the idea that they're competing. PUMMEL offers both in a somewhat casual fashion. Unlike some online competitions where you only have a week to get something done, PUMMEL matches usually give competitors a little over three weeks. Also, there are Weight-Class categories to ensure that no one is in too much over their head.
If you're interested, head on over to the PUMMEL forum over at penciljack.com ( www.penciljack.com/forum/forum… ) and check it out! Even if PUMMEL itself doesn't suit you, the Penciljack forums are a good resource for getting critiques and feedback, as well as ramble about nerdy things, so feel free to make an account and come hang out with us!
