The Judge's Table thread is locked to help keep it clean and easy to navigate, so I thought it might be nice to have another thread in case people would like to discuss the entries or the contest in general.
I also wanted to say over the next several days we will be adding the Feedback to the Judge's Thread from the judge's so check back often if you want to see what we had to say about your entry or what we are saying about other entries.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to say that I hope our feedback will not be taken personally as it is not meant to belittle the amazing work that you all have done in this contest. All of the entries are amazing for their own reasons, whether you are just starting out in the hobby or are a seasoned veteran. The goal of our comments and criticism is not to diminish what you have accomplished, but offer our opinions how how you can further yourself in the hobby that we all love.
Also please bare in mind that our feedback is simply our opinions and we certainly do not mean to convey that there is a right or wrong way to do art.
The chief goal of the Painting Pledge Contest is so that people can push their current skill level to the limit and come out with a new, higher standard for themselves that they can be proud of.
We all greatly appreciate your participation in the Painting Pledge Contest and hope that you will continue to join us in the future as we grow into a bigger and greater event.
