Thanks for the votes and comments (under anfa
's entry... some folk struggled in the vote which was all I could ask for... I forgive you kittie
I knew it was over pretty much when... I saw the brackets. lol!
So I did what comes natural - I tried to bribe billtvshow
with a furrable source for this round. But his price was way too steep - sorry, genuine panda fur slippers and briefs is just so... wrong.
My original idea was an alligator lounge lizard sunning himself on the beach - complete with gold chains, speedo, and snapping a towel at a female alligator. But I reviewed anfa
's portfolio and figured he would do a funny chop. [And he delivered - favorite'd]. That would likely cancel out teh funny and make it a technical compare only. Well he has excellent polish so I would lose there for sure.
And then I had an episode* last weekend
so just thought about doing a no-show image. But a friend's son asked that I draw a dragon monster for him so I used the source to create this. All source. Tuesday. All day/night. Submitted image at 4:53 AM Pacific (7:53 AM Eastern US). I literally ran out of time to give it the pop & sizzle I intended & it desperately needed. If folk are interested, I can post the final version here.
But let's face facts, anfa
's image was excellent - inventive, polished, & full of pop. So I don't know if a brighter dragon - or even a lounge lizard - would have made a difference. There is no dishonor in losing to an excellent chop/chopper and I made a kid named Tim happy too. Win-win.
*My disorder has made me very slow physically... spending 20hrs on an image is too taxing for me now. If I hope to have any success in these tourneys, I have to rise in the ranks so I'm not facing the best out of the gate. Which means more dailies. I was sick much of the past year. If I'm able to compete more often, you may see me in the H2H next year. If not, this will be my final tourney. If this is it, it's been fun!
