I began another painting pass over that Monster Hunter Contest entry. This time, I decided to try a different approach than previous pieces. I sought to be a bit more experimental with the coloring and not pit too much thought into it. The quick and rough technique of painting is something I'd like to delve into more often.
Ah, but wait. I still haven't explained what this whole contest was about have I?
Well, last month Capcom USA announced a "create-a-monster" contest where the winner would win a free copy of Monster Hunter 2 for PSP. As you can see via the link below.
If that link still works, you will notice that the contest was set to run until Monday, June 29th at 11:59pm. However, they already picked the winners a hell of a lot earlier than that. By 3:03p.m. they posted the winning entries. Needless to say, I was PISSED!
I never participated in a Capcom sponsored art contest before, but from what I've been told this has happened before. I gotta tell ya. That whole situation makes me a bit wary of the "redesign Bayonetta" I heard about.
Just like all these contests I enter, the primary goal is to get another finished piece out of it. (Even thought that sloth/tortoise isn't done.) Still, I'd rather not have to contend with anymore bullshit.
