you mean that entry that was featured twice??? (we all know which one right?) the art work was a a whole nother level than most of the entries ( a bit of an unfair measuring stick imho) yet i personally felt that it held the concept of "hand" turkey a little too loosely... amazing all the same, if it does indeed take the win, than congrats to the artist. i was honored just having my entry featured as well :) like i've stated before i'd be happy just to place.

Even though I didn't enter the contest, I will say the winner is just out of what they asked for. The guidelines said it needed to be a hand-turkey drawing, not a sort of dragon or phoenix. Why I'm saying this? I bet many follow the guidelines of a hand-turkey drawing without being able to expand their creativity over those limits since they thought they may be disqualified, but the winner decided to give it a slight improvement and make it look like a dragon/phoenix. What I'm trying to say if that if they permitted a cross, or such change in what they asked for they should have say it, I have always pointed out this in the past contests, they give guidelines to follow and when they are about to judge they don't follow them. I really don't think it is fair to everyone who gave their effort making a hand-turkey based drawing when the winner didn't follow the guideline of a hand-turkey, though I must say the way he draw the hand phoenix is impressive, but he really doesn't deserves to be the winner if he didn't follow the guidelines. That's my opinion, if someone disagrees you're free to point out your opinion but in my point of view, the result of the winner is flawed.
The judges should give more specific guidelines next time to prevent this type of flaws when judging.

The guideline that said it needed to be a turkey is quoted here:
quote:

What to do: Make a AE-themed Hand-Turkey original artwork. This is when you outline your hand and add details to it…Just like a turkey. This is a drawing contest, but don’t be discouraged about your art skills because mine lack greatly! Make sure to incorporate any of the AE Games. (AQ, MQ, DF, AQW, ED, HS) or fantasy themed elements!

This is AE they reward creativity, this entry was creative, and would make an awesome pet :) I believe that while there were so many good choices this was a great choice. And who cares if it is an exact hand, the drawing itself is meant to be a hand but as most things in life it is stylized. I see your argument, but it is not fair to state that someone who worked so hard submitted a non-legal entry. :-)

Sorry but in the past contests, many awesome entries have been disqualified for silly rules like size, format or such things. They should follow guidelines, that's all I ask for, as I point out, he did the entry in an awesome way sadly he didn't follow the guidelines. The creativity in the entry was good, but it didn't follow the guidelines given so why shouldn't it be disqualified? That's my question. If they don't follow guidelines, how do they want that rules they give us are meant to be followed? One of the reasons I argue about this is because in the Artix vs Sepulchure contest my entry ( here) was disqualified because of size format, but even if it was an awesome entry it was disqualified no matter if it was cool or not. There must be no favoritism here and that's what AE has been doing all of these years in contests and suggestion shops. They must make a solid base on this contests, else they will continue to make the same mistake over and over. Fairness must prevail.

... am I the only one who didn't necessarily want to win the Grand Prize when entering this? I mean, it'd be neat to get an item in-game and all, but that's what the Suggestion Shop is for. Meanwhile, all the runners-up get the consolation pet plus the ability to purchase the winner's pet. In my mind, the runners up are getting the most out of this.

boyoyo's entry is a rather nice one, and i think it would make a nice addition to the game, but can someone plz post the source on that, i'm not implying that aqw0 is lying it's just i tend to take hearsay with a tablespoon of salt till i see something official :\

@above
i agree (sorta) grand prize aside, this contest was a lot of fun. i think we're all winners here just for taking part. congrats all around, and again very nice work

Dude I love IT :D Was one of the only colored non-computer drawn one and it would have made an excellent pet! You have a chance :)

ALso I would delete or combine your duel post so an AK doesn't have to do it for you :)
