My entry for the scribble contest. I thought I was going to run out of time but managed to complete it. First 2D piece for a long long time, had fun!

There's a dolphin somewhere!!

:: FULL RESOLUTION RECOMMENDED ::

Lines: Are used twice. Once for the main composition, and also one of the signs on a building with the lines in their original state

This is awesome. :) Nice piece. Such a shame the skribble contest didn't turn out as most of us thought it would. I think you did really well with this piece, and for me the skribbles are more obvious than 2 of the actual winners.

wooow! I usually don't go for pictures like this at all (sci-fi is just not my thing I guess) but I just wanted to drop by and say I love the way you used the scribbles for the entire composition! It's really amazing and I can't remember seeing that in a lot of the other entries! :D (of course the rest of it is awesome too ;))

however the lines are not like they were so the rules are not respected neither in your entry.

Like many others, I think this entry should have been in the semi-finals. But I think the judges over looked it because they couldn't see the lines easily enough. I saw the shapes immediately, and I think it's amazing how you've put them in. The judges on the other hand probably didn't want to take the time to find them.

I looked at the semi-finals again, and the judges for these massive DA contests seem to pick some of the loudest, and busiest pieces for winners. I like your entry because there is composition and a soft beautiful color scheme. It's a great piece!

This should have won. The concept alone beats all the others, in my opinion. And your use of the lines looks so natural, (like, of course the landscape and buildings would be that way!) rather than just thrown in haphazardly. Love it!!

There's a dolphin in there?!?! I'm gonna find it!

He's chilling in the Bar drinking a martini with a koala. ha ha. Easier to see in the full resolution version that isn't here. Thank you so much for your support and noticing the thought gone into the piece.

The dolphin and the koala are totally genius, as is the whole concept. Such a shame this contest was taken as a complete joke by the judges :(

I had missed this one. At first I had a hard time seeing where the lines were supposed to be but then had an epiphany and it all made sense. You actually worked them in quite ingeniously. Very nice work overall.

Thanks! My entry still bugs me, but I'm glad I managed to finish it after all; originally I wasn't going to.

It's a shame that yours didn't get in though. Oh well! Hopefully it was fun to work on.

I love it when I read "here's my humble entery" because immediately I know it's gonna be worth checking it out. And in this case I was oh so right. :D great atmosphere, great use of lines that were given. I envy your skill in painting enviroments. If I was the judge this would surely be one of top 3. I love it when I see the effort that was put into a piece.

great job. good luck to you and keep on rockin'
