ATTENTION!!!  April is HERE!!!  2nd ArtistArena.Org Contest!
#AprilArtContest  

It has been very awesomely great so far.  Good amount of turn out last time and many good work!  Well done guys!  March winners will be announced base on the amount of +1 (80%) and my decision (20%)

#MarchArtContest   Winners will be announced tomorrow.
The critique and paint over video is coming on Wednesday on Youtube a bit more exciting.  

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!!!

Prize:
- I will feature top ten 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 30th
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.

Judging:
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.  ;-)

Hello Everyone!!! I'm new to the group and wanted to join after Xia's video on last months contest winners! This is actually the first contest i've ever done with my artwork. I look forward to learning from you all and growing with you!! So i went with a slightly final fantasy type look, tech with a mix of handmade clothing and items. I nicknamed him "ship" because he never leaves without his plank (sword) and his cannon (gun). hope you guys like it!  #AprilArtContest
