Ooooh, this REALLY irks me...

Ok, so if you HAVEN'T heard, the winners of the 8-Bit Design Challenge have been chosen, and boy, this irks me BAD.

Not the winners, but the stipulations that were 'in-my-opinion' ignored.

So much for staying within the 7 color limit, right? Check out the winners on £deviantWEAR's page (deviantwear.deviantart.com) Seems like I won't be abiding by the 'suggested' rules next time, either. Congrats to you both.

Unfortunately, this makes me lose so much respect to these 'contests' and deviantArt itself. Don't get me wrong; I'm not upset at the winners, I truly congratulate them, they're worthy of winning...it's the stipulations that are placed upon these contests and are 'seemingly' overlooked, are what prods me ever so gently. Ok, I'm being nice. This stabs me like a fork into a thick, juicy steak. Why even place rules? Who's with me on this...is this a valid argument to anyone here or am I a lonely soldier standing on this battlefield?

However the outcome, I've made some great friends and joined some great groups due to this contest, and I DID prove that it's not just popularity that gets you through to the semi-finalists, a damn good idea does, too. It was a good run; and thanks for playing... *pat on the head* XD


In BETTER news... XD

BTW, I've got my FIRST-EVER Gallery Show Saturday, May 26th!!! So come on by if you're in the La Puente, CA area!!! Details here: www.facebook.com/events/332211…
  • Mood: Sadness
  • Listening to: My boilin' point rising...
  • Reading: The EXTREMELY long-awaited results
  • Playing: The world's smallest violin...
  • Eating: ...my pride.
  • Drinking: Yeah, it's not THAT bad... XD

Hey all you Deviants out there (I know you're watching),

First of all, welcome to my side of this creative universe! I would like to thank you for visiting my work and spending a minute just to even read this; making new connections and hearing what you think is what I strive for! Take a look around, and comment on whatever you'd like! I'm never too experienced to learn; that's why I'm here!!!

As that's said, I'd love to take a run at a 3-Month Premium Membership; taking the reins and REALLY showing you what the World Of M.Gleason is capable of! This is the first time (in FIVE years running) that I've ever tried this, so best time to start than any, right? Please donate what you can, or spread the word that I'd like to be gifted any type of Premium Membership; I really think the DeviantART universe could benefit from this! And I hope to prove myself RIGHT in the near future...

Thanks in advance for your time in reading this, as well as any donations you can flick my way, and keep in touch, anytime; my world is now YOUR world! Welcome! :D

Deviantly Yours, -M.
