Can't even tell where the lines are!
These people, they really deserve this.

I heard the Lady with the Zebra got first, very shameful imo. Looks like the artist just slapped on the scribbles at random spots. Way to be creative with the scribbles.

It's so sad how messed up this all was. Cheaters here and there.

But I think my own piece broke some rules as well. I was a bit unsure about what I was actually allowed to do. But this idea really was the first thing that popped into my head when I looked at the skribble lines. So I would probably have done it even if I knew I couldn't:shrug:

But just to check; I was not allowed to use a reference and I was not allowed to use Harry Potter theme? Here is my contribution: [link]
How many rules did I break? :XD:

Bit depressing that A) so many ineligible pieces were chosen in the first place, and that B) so many people don't realize that copying a "reference" work - even if it is freehand - is still considered cheating for any contest.

I call bullshit on :iconemziemzi:'s work [link]
It's an obvious paint over of this photo --> [link]

proof --> [link]
I wouldn't notice if not the fact that she posted a very high resolution and pixelated parts of the original photo are still clearly visible --> [link]

This contest is getting better by the minute.

I really thought so too, at first. She did post a step-by-step of her process, though.

However, the use of Jessica Alba's face still poses a problem, since you're not supposed to use a likeness of any person without their express written consent.

The Copyright infringer semi finalist, !ZtrikerZ :iconztrikerz:, closed his account for admittedly ripping work from this site [link] in his submission called "Rebellion" also removed with account. He closed his account because he had nothing to lose but a 1 month membership, which brings us to the next delinquent which has more at stake to lose, so he will not likely admit to not following the rules. Although, its inevitable that it will be removed, just a matter of by him or dA.

The next culprit is fatihatci :iconfatihatci: the second place cheating winner and the deviation he submitted is [link]. His cheating is just as clear as the former. This is his original of that work he took a year ago [link] You will notice his signature and date on the picture just like all the deviations in his gallery. Even further, you can look at [link] and scroll to "Camera data" and notice that he took this image on Sep 13, 2010, 3:07:47 PM with his Canon Camera he just added the scribbles where his signature was and something to one of the fishes, just wow. Absolutely no words for this kind of behavior and its not fair to the other artists who followed the rules.

The second place winner will be removed and the third place winner bumped up to his place. The semi-finalists will get a replacement for the other infringer and judging will take place for a new third place winner.

Also, the cyborg lady for using Jessica Alba's likeness without written consent, and the "You're a Wizard" and the luchadores poster for infringing on another party's proprietary rights, all forbidden under this bit of the Official Rules:

"By submitting the Work, Entrant represents that (i) (s)he has the unrestricted right to submit the Work; (ii) all persons whose name or likeness appears in the Work have unconditionally consented in writing to their appearance in the Work and unconditionally granted entrant in writing the right to submit the Work subject to these Official Rules, a copy of which consent and grant will be furnished to the Sponsor upon request; and (iii) the Work does not infringe upon any third party's proprietary or other rights. Entrant may use licensed brushes and textures in the Work."

That's 5 out of 25. That's 20% of all the semi-finalists. That's unacceptable, unfair to all those who followed the rules who lost out on those five spots, and an insult to those who were chosen who played the game right. One of the rule-breakers is an outright cheater, and that landed him 2nd place?

Unacceptable. Inexcusable.

True. Won't happen again, or will be closely monitored next time.
