I think that the 25th sounds pretty fair, I've edited the first post but I'm not sure that anybody will actually be reading the first page ^^;

Oo, and thank you Radical Dreamer, I really liked your entry too ^_^

I'm definitely planning on commenting on every single entry tomorrow night, once I've gotten all my annoying work shifts and dental appointments over with *plots*

LQ, I love yours! I really liked the city at the bottom. It actually caught my eye right away. That and the hair and the clouds. :grin: awesome as usual!

Gah! LQ! I think you've blown my unfinished entry right out of the water! :lol: That is SO COOL! You said it's on the scribbly side, but I can't see that at all: it looks so great!
Yeah, maybe you've fallen back into your old ways, but I still love lots of blue. ^_^ Go blue! It's my fav colour.
Your idea for the pic is so creative and fantastic! And the addition of the city below is... *tries to find words to express it right* ...well, it looks just plain amazing. Don't worry, it definitely looks like a city.
Gah! It looks so good! *Steals LQ's entry* ;)

Yeah, Dinobot was cool; and Ratrap was good for a laugh. Go small guys! :jump: I seem to have a soft spot for short guy characters in cartoons...

I think that the 25th sounds pretty fair, I've edited the first post but I'm not sure that anybody will actually be reading the first page ^^;

I wondered if you'd edit the first page or not, but I forgot to check. ^_^" The 25th sounds good; gives me more time to slowly work away at my entry.
It's so fun to be entering these contests again! Seriously, these monthly contents give me so much pleasure to watch, and they're so fun to enter too; win or lose. ^_^

Lovely job LQ.

The 25th, huh? Guess that means I need to get my rear in gear... I have barely enough done for mine to be considered a WIP... lol.

Thanks all for the feedback ^_^ I pretty much did my entry entirely for fun and the sake of practicing. I probably can't include it since odds are I'll be judging the contest and that would get weird O_o

And now for my attempt at catching up in a commenting barrage!

chibiphonebooth - I love the concept! The colours are so lively and warm and the visual texture is so rich, I just can't stop staring because I wanna pick out every single one of the details.

Kewl Girl - Welcome to the contest! I'm really liking the colour scheme that you picked for the figure and I absolutely love what you did with the field background, the butterfly is an excellent touch too.

ChristianRonin - Awesome! That's probably the most that I've ever seen added to a contest entry but it's fine. I'm impressed that you did an entire other image as the background and I love the concept and story behind it. Oo, and I wish you all the best with college.

Puguni - SWEET. Such an absolutely killer concept! Love it! It's very cool to see the artist's approach to the line-art.

Vernhal - Why didn't I think of a sci-fi lab setting?! It totally suits the floating hair! *headdesk* The coloring is awesomely polished and clean looking too.

Radical Dreamer - Such an amazingly intricate background! I really like how you've created such a fully realized setting. The shading on the figure is really nicely done and the tones for the hair and body are really working together. The hair shading is so cool.

Ashley - I love the shade of green in the hair! I have such a weakness for rich earth tones and greens. Needless to say I'm really liking your version, it has quite a peaceful and relaxing vibe to it.

RubyJewelStone - Excellent concept and the shading on the figure is very realistic. The colours that you chose are simply lovely and I absolutely have to give ya credit for tackling the image twice!

meboeck - Well, you've definitely snagged my inner art geek's attention with the Van Gogh reference. I lovely Starry Night and it's had a really cool effect on your style. I really like the composition and I love what you did with the wave curls and the bright colours.

marty - YAY another new face! Welcome ^^ I really like the vibrant contrasting colours that you used and the background is working well. Very spiffy, especially for a first entry.

QtheQreater - Oooo...such pretty glowing hair and I am really lovin' the patterns on the body. Great use of textures and I like how you emphasized the figure while still maintaining overall unity.

So very, very sorry if I've missed anyone ^^; I think I'm going to bed now *is all commented out for the night*

Lol! All the best, SA. ^_^ Me, I've got a few more things to add to mine, but I'm feeling kinda lazy, and also giving my hands a rest since I went a little overboard yesterday. :P
Good luck to everyone who's still scribbling away! But I wonder... where's Scribs? o_O

EEP! Do preserve the hands! Glad to hear that your entry is going well and nearing completion ^^

I'm not sure what happened to Scribs but I do think he mentioned something about "going out in style" with his edible entry to the July contest. Which kinda sounds not to promising for future appearances by teh Scribs-miester :/

Don't worry, I'll take care of them! /(>.<) <-(*salutes*) That's why I'm taking a break from colouring for a few days. ^_^ They'll be all right with rest and responsible use. ^^

Aw man... :sniffle: -Scribs! No, don't leave us mate! T_T
But that was such a cool entry with the meat and chilli sauce last time, lol! XD *lols just thinking about it*

Wow: Souba, that's amazing! I love all those soft colours and textures. And for some reason it kinda reminds me of candy... Probably the nice, soft colouring job you did on it... :drool: Aw man! Now I'm hungry! >_< ;)
Your version of the pic is really kawaii! ^_^

Wowie guys. School has finally given me a long enough minute to finally look through this thread.

My jaw hurts from dropping so much.

Rad Dreamer's and lizqueen's are my faves and I adore c-ronin's idea with the sprite in a bubble.

So pretty...

But of course, pick me as the winner anyways... ;-) ...j/k

Thanks for all the compliments guys. I really didn't think mine was THAT good.

Good luck everyone.

I finished. *wipes brow* I'm not completely satisfied with how it turned out, but I had fun playing around anyway. But the background... *shoots* :P
I just had too much other stuff to do.

Good job everyone, there are some absolutely lovely entries this month.

:edit: ^^;;;;; Might help to put up the picture...

Gah! So very cool, SA! I love the pink blushes on the cheeks too. ^^ (*mutters about how she should've done that to her entry...* ;) )
Love the blue. Love the clouds. In fact, your entry looks a lot like something I would've done, since I love clouds, blue, and cute blush marks on the cheeks. ^_^ So obviously I love what you've done with your entry. :grin:

Man, mine's just about ready... but as per my perfectionistic self, I have the major desire to tweak and tweak it. In fact, I was doing so when I must've overloaded my computer and Photoshop closed. No worries though, since I've got the whole thing saved.

*Resists urge to tweak*

I think I'll post my entry tomorrow; it'll give me time to look at it afresh before putting it up.

X3 Thanks so much.

I'm a bit of a cute addict, but my regular artwork is rather serious, so I don't ever get to do cheek blushes. *tucks pouty lip back in* So I ran with the opportunity, lol.

I understand about tweaking... I'm horrible about it, it takes all my strength of will to let a picture be, save it as a jpeg, and delete the photoshop file with all the layers. lol

Puguni - do you have a DA account so I can credit you when I put my entry up on my DA?
