Here we are, the middle of the month, and it also happens to be the middle of the time that the avatar contest will take place! :-D
This blog entry is also going to serve as something of an update: So far, we've gotten very few entries. Perhaps you artists are working on making it the very best you can do. Or maybe you have other things going on in your life right now. OR - perhaps you are doing like a lot of artists usually do, and are waiting for the last minute before even starting on the sketches! LOL
After all, July 31st (the end of the contest) seems SO far away, and it appears that you have tons of time to get started! Well, the only thing I can say to that is - IT'S THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH NOW! See how fast that time went by? And I betcha that the rest of the month will go by just as quickly!
Tell ya what - do me a favor, willya? At the very least, please let me know how many of you plan to enter a submission to my contests (color and B&W avatar art) by either posting a comment here or sending me an e-mail. I just want to have an idea how many of you plan to give this a shot. I mean, c'mon! $1oo and $50 for a freakin' avatar! It's not like I'm asking you to do a whole comic book!
If we get very little to no response to my call for who plans to participate, then we might consider canceling the contest. We don't want to do that - trust me - but if we are not getting the kind of interest out of this that we hope we would get, then that defeats the purpose of having the contest. So drop me a line, okay? I want to believe that I have more interested readers out there than I think I have right now.
In other news, unless the creative bug hits me Friday or Saturday, then this is likely going to be the only blog entry I will make this week. Things are kinda nutzo for me in real life right now, so I gotta take care of these other things. Take care and see you next week!
