Second Hand Smoke. by HeatherSchoff Second Hand Smoke. by HeatherSchoff
This work was part of the "Make it ugly" deviantart contest- but when I found I didn't make the top 40 I edited the display option so this work wouldn't be stolen.

Photoshop CS5
A lot of hours, 35 layers.

Thank you! I only entered because it gave some good attention, but it is sad that the staff seems to always already have their people chose out before the contest even starts half the time.
I am most honored that you like it so!

It just seems like it... I'm just venting because it always seems like it is the most popular that always get the spot. I don't do contest like I use to!

I love personal contests with friends. It is where I do my best work. But continental contests always seem like too much. there are so many entries it seems unfair. especially considering how many people wait to post till the last day ~conveniently the contest winners~

That's why I was originally doing every contest I could, but then I started to get frustrated because I always would chose the wrong kind of contest for my style. It was good practice for broadening my scope in drawing though.
Now I place them far between and enjoy my own works.
I do agree with the last minute people thing. I've seen it go both ways with the first few and the last few... but never in-between. I don't get it.

*shrug* I thought for a while it was safe to just do personal contests but I got screwed there too T^T
I don't have to win money or even stuff. I love the joy of challenging each other to do more and have fun. But then I joined a contest "draw my characters-first prize is $30"
she cancelled it after a bunch of people made entries and I realized that it was in a very real way a scam for free art. Crushed me. I'm a lot more particular about it now. Sadly one of my favorite works was made for it.

Oh gosh! I came close to having that happen but the girl finally finished the contest. She just vanished for half a year with everyone's saved full-viewed entries for her book she was writing. I was irritated forever about that contest... and then come to find out she finished it and didn't announce it the winners either. Aye. But I did get some points out of that one. :D
