I'm assuming that the producers held multiple art contests at the same time in order to promote the movie. I don't recall seeing any of that art in dA.

DA seems to be much stiffer competition.

Oh man...After weeks of hard work, these last couple of days really have been killing me (and I suspect many others). I know that today is not necessarily set in stone (as written in the contest rules, it says "on, or around the 22nd").

But, it would be great if we did all find out who made it! :) Again, good luck everyone!

Yep, but I would rather the judges be thorough and be late than be hasty.

Todays the day, huh? I hope it's soon. I can't wait to see who made it this time though I'm not expecting mine to. Way too many top notch entry's. Love the competition, it only makes me stronger! It would be cool to see one of yours make it, not a lot of painted entry's.

This one took a bit of time for them to pick...I can see why though. Lots of great work. I loved yours! :) Make it or not it was tons of fun. I always enjoy painting new things. These contests inspire new ideas.

There's a ton of crazy awesome submissions that are buried in there too. While I think this contest had a smaller amount of entry's there are more than enough quality and creative pieces. It must be difficult to pour over and evaluate each one.

 

Yeah, I'm really liking these contests. I've learned a lot and pushed some of my skills a bit. Plus I've met a good number of people that have helped me shape my view of art and how to proceed with my work. It's also helped to keep my expectations in check and learn to deal with rejection while identifying ways to improve.
