It has been very awesomely great so far. Good amount of turn out last time and many good work! Well done guys!

Again the easiest way for me to give critique if you come up with something from scratch, like an art test. So… Monthly critique now will be assigned as topic/project for you guys to work on. So far GREAT!!! Next time I will have people (members) join me live via Google hangout and talk for this event. :-)

– I will feature top ten to twenty of your final submissions on my video at the end of March and critic and paint over the top three of my choices.
– Winner will get a private art lesson course with me via Google hangout. 🙂

Deadline April 31
Rules: Follow the description

Topic in April: Character
Description: Space Pirate! (because Harlock is cool!)

Put it in any style, action, scene or back drop you like. Do your best.

Four mods +shinyspartan +Andrea Patricolo +Ivan Dir and I, the judge panel, pick the top three. The vote counts 30% total

And The winner of previous round
+Danielle Oyales pick the top three. The vote counts 10% total.
(the winner of the previous round can’t enter the current one but able to the next one.)

And the rest 60% will be +1 from everyone.

**We are using the new judging system so that nobody can game the +1 and I think it is reasonable.

Type #AprilArtContest along with your submission so I can find your submission.
One submission per person please. ;-)
