What an exciting week! Who would have guessed that the Oakland Raiders would win 2 in a row!?! And such big wins at that. I can't wait for KC next week. :D

We have had a lot of positive feedback on the recent Pushing the Envelope challenge. I'm glad that you are all enjoying the extra challenge. Please keep in mind that next week marks the 1 year anniversary of Apophysis Challenges! If you have any suggestions, ideas, donations, etc... please let me know asap. It really is a big thing...it's huge!, and every one of you who have been participating deserve to be celebrated for the strong effort you've been putting in. I'd really like to provide some prizes for the winner of the challenge next week, so any donations or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Just drop me a note.

I have some more exciting news coming in just a while. Things need to be solidified first, then I'll share with all of you. ;)

The judging will be fierce this week with all of the great entries for Pushing The Envelope 2. Take your time in making your decision. Make sure that the entry held up to all the criteria and did a good job of coloring. I must commend all of you who have been voting too, we're seeing record numbers in the amount of votes for each challenge!

Our runners up for Challenge #49 tied: zweeZwyy & DulcineaWW.

Challenge #51

Spherical/Disc Challenge
This weeks challenge is brought to us by heavenriver. It is her first tutorial, and a very versatile one at that.
As usual, our tutorial challenges have a very small list of rules.
  • Learn the style and technique of the tutorial
  • Make it your own

I see a ton of potential available in this technique. Have fun with it!
Apophysis Spherical-Disc Tut by heavenriver
Deadline: Sunday, November 7th 11:59pm (EST)
