We Love Fine Contest

Journal Entry: Tue May 28, 2013, 6:00 PM
I've made several designs for the current We Love Fine contest. I've been trying hard to get into the Mighty Fine Artists for a long time now, and performing well in the contests tends to be the best way to get in (due to constantly shifting organization in their company, they've totally forgone looking at portfolios and instead rely on contests alone). That aside, I think you'd probably like my designs, which'll be floating by over the next few days in the form of prints and wallpapers as well to give a closer look.

Honestly, I don't care so much about winning as much as I care about getting them to look at my portfolio so I can become a Mighty Fine Artist. I've been trying to get in for the past year, yet they don't have any feasible way to submit your portfolio. (Emails are untouched.) And, if I get in, all these designs (and more) would become available through WLF.

My designs (anything marked with 'Zedrin' or submitted by 'Marshal' would be me):

Ponies:


Villains:

True Night has been overhauled, and the things we do for WUB makes a return for the competition. PLEASE, vote for my works (a score of 5 being best)! You do need to register, but it's quick and easy. Get your friends to vote as well!

In other news, I'm sorry I haven't been able to open commissions. At this point it's kinda unlikely I will be able to any time soon, with how much I need to get done at the moment. That said, our new animation should be going up very soon, and I'm working on the major animation that we'll be showcasing at Bronycon! (SFS will have our own panel, for those who didn't know!)

That about sums up everything.

Oh yeah, and Kerbal Space Program is awesome.

here's hoping! By artist I'm in second place at the moment in both contests. The same person is in first in both as well, and all his designs outplay mine currently x_x But I've got a handful that are fast catching up, and I haven't even advertised on Youtube yet.

not really familiar with the prizes but what are the prizes for like 1st,2nd, etc? I mean i hope you get 1st but even if you get 2nd will they still print your shirts?

also if you got this on tumblr I'll reblog to help spread the word. only got 11 followers but maybe they have others who can help too.

First is $500, guest judge choice is like $100-$300, and $100 is for the runner ups. All 10 finalists get to compete in the ultimate contest for up to $5000, and get their portfolios looked at.

I wish you luck. Though I'm wondering, if one or all of them don't make it, do you plan on putting them on red bubble or the site that you usually sell your stuff on?

I'm aware. I'm frustrated as hell because half the time I've put forth something strong in the art community, he's right there as well. This is his first contest and my third. I just want WLF to look at my portfolio, yet I don't have a massive following due to I don't draw that much porn.

Its not his porn that makes him well known, its his unique art style. he is one of my fav artist, but at the same time, seeing him in the contest, I can already tell that he will be tops :/

Your designs are good too! and you even have 5 of them. I only have 2. one was a last minute thing (would make for a great shirt, and figured why not), while the other i spent 23 hours on for the contest specifically. I dont mind if I lose, but like you, this too is my 3rd time entering a WLF contest. and (like you) would like to get up there. after losing a lot of contest's, it would be nice to win at least one here and there.

I predict that you will rank high in this contest, but atryl will surpass you, and everyone else T^T even worse, he may take all the slots.

I'll be lucky if i even get up there. you have more 5's then I do, so already your up there.

Even still, I at least got and art piece out of this ([link] And thats what matters, but would still love to try and win. Best of luck to use, and everyone else. we will need it with atryl in the contest.

I've got 10 designs, actually. If he takes all the slots, he basically single handedly kills my chance of sending in my portfolio. This is heavily tied to my income, as it's the only work I can do while in college.

i ment 5 for the ponies part of the contest :P but he also has 4 design for the villains as well -_-

I think he would kill others chances too. im in college as well, and this would help a lot if I can get somewhere in there as well. I have confidence you'll still get there. I do in my self too, but I'm not like a "brand/ big name", so its going to be an interesting ride for me. a bit easier for you.

either way, we shall see what happens, won't we :/
