Yeah shadoman I agree, plus getting mauled in the first round by one of the pros should at least give you access to a detailed crit from them, so either way it'll be good.

i guess you're right. it would be very cool to take on marko. but i think i would enjoy making it past the first round. maybe i'm being too cynical. there's tons o' folks new to the site and who knows what level of skill they possess.
speaking of which, dsillustration, are you going to do a finished painting for each round? because you're art is amazingly detailed. i'm guessing you use reference? if so, do you plan on taking ref photos yourself or just snagging stuff from the net or wherever?
okay, c'mon strych9ine! getting antsy here...
I believe my spleen has dissolved into a pile of mush thanks to the anticipation....
I, personally, would love to get trounced by one of the pros. Its like being shot down by the Red Baron, better then winning!
If Strych9ine plays his cards right, he can make the pairings post his 1,000th post.
i plan doing paintings, but may need to touch up things digitally given the time constraints.
i think it'll be good for me.
i am definetly a reference , i may cut back on that a little too.

Dude, Marko, I typed your last name about 37 times to day and I gotta tell you... that shit don't get any easier to say as I go along.
Good luck everyone, and bring your damn A game regardless of who you are pairing up with. I don't want to see ANY no shows here, have enough respect for your opponent to crank out your best work. Dig it? Get to drawing.
Oh and btw, I've been thinking about the 3 and 4 man pairings later on in the rounds, and thanks to suggestions I've been sent today I am starting to realize this is less and less of a good idea. When the art gets the best, should we really but cutting 2 to 3 of the pieces at a time? I say thee nay. We're going back to one on one throughout the entire competition... if you can make it 5 rounds, you can make it 6.
Nah my friend, I'm full on balls in this bad boy. It's my baby. Not that my balls would be in or near a baby of mine, but... shit, well, I'm in regardless. Should be fun.Originally Posted by Smitherines
Red Rook DOESN'T EVEN EXIST.... according to the member list.... some help me out .....
And for chissakes, to everyone who is a newcomer to the community... put up some of your work in your portfolio profile so we know who in the hell you are! People may see that they are going up against Goobertron3000, but that means shit unless you got some work for us to associate the name too.
