    Most of my stuff is done primarily with markers. I recently bought a new set of Prismacolor markers with these neat " brush " tips so I broke them in for this. This has colored pencils & some acrylic paint too. Oh, I dunno for sure if it helped but I actually used marker paper instead of just whatever I had laying around as well.I also have a set of Prismacolor pens too. For the outlines, I used umm... some sort of dark umber pen. I have a .005 width and a .05. I dunno if I use markers in the " professional " manner. I kind of use them like I'm painting and there's a lot of saturation.... I don't have much trouble with bleeding though.

    I'm sure there are other entries but I haven't thought to look yet.

    It was too easy to submit a JPEG actually. Just as long as it's less that 6 MB. I think mine was like 2 MB. But it's one of those deals where it just links you to your own files... like the way it does when you submit something to Deviant Art or... anywhere actually. From what I understand, the winning entries will have to send PSD or TIFF versions, but the key word there is " winning ", so, we don't have to concern ourselves with that yet. Plus, I'm sure they'll be able to help the winners out when the time comes.

    Hope that helps. :smirk:

    I didn't do this, but on the site, there's something you can download. I think it may be ideas for inspiration but it may have something about logos and things like that. :smirk:

    No logos. It's just a set of photos, some nice ones too! Characters and sets. So not really anything that wasn't already available I don't think.

    When did the date change for this??

    Work has to be submitted by aug 14th now! Not June 21st as first published!?
    At least it gives me more time to finish!?

    They apparently pushed the deadline back in order to have more entries to choose from. There are 9 second place winners after all.

    Kermieuk Well-Known Member

    Why the confusion? If you look at the website and rules the date has changed!
    I have no idea why?

    I checked the rules of the contest yesterday and I couldn't find the changed date.

    Does anyone know how to view the uploaded entries?? I used your link Foodie and it had a back button on you image which would let you view all entries??

    Now I cant find anywhere how to look at the entries?

    I couldn't find a way through my entry until I did a search for " fraggle " on Talenthouse that gave me links to other entries. :smirk:

    Just heard about this contest the other day and am super excited! Really glad the deadline was pushed back. I'm not sure if this is allowed (the rules say you can't use something already published, so hopefully posting this beforehand doesn't disqualify me), but I wondered if I could get some feedback on my entry. I'm doing all five main Fraggles in a very stylized way, using only the straight-line and paint bucket tools in Photoshop. Here's Red, and I'm working on the rest. I don't expect to win, but second place would be really cool. Does anyone have any feedback/critiques on this? Any suggestions before I move on to the other 4? I'd really appreciate it.
