Light or Dark? by Hidden-Rainbows Light or Dark? by Hidden-Rainbows
Hey Everyone!

So I just found out about this contest on DA called Beautiful Creatures. I saw the trailer and immediately got an idea for a painting. The contest is over on January 20th so I am really under the wire. I painted this today, and then found out that this contest is only available in the states! UGH! But you know what, I am going to finish this painting anyways. I'm not really sure why contests will do that. I mean there are so many amazing artists all around the world, so why not open it up to everyone? Especially when it is something that is going to represent your brand or movie? I guess maybe it has something to do with laws or something? I dunno, but I think they made a mistake in that decision. So I am going to put my all into this painting and hopefully change there mind for the next contest they put up. Nobody should be left out of an awesome contest because of where they live. Let me know what you think about this!

I actually own that book, wow. I keep procrastinating on actually reading it, though.

Nice painting so far, and it's really too bad that they sometimes host contests for US only. This is an international site, dammit. They can't just expect everyone to live in that country, even if it sometimes seems like everyone on the internet comes from there.
There are other countries in this world, too. We shouldn't be left out of things we may want to join. This is the internet, after all.

Exactly what I was thinking! I mean, if your hosting a contest on the internet, how can they make it only available to one area? Makes me a little sad and confused, but it would be funny if they were like 'This ones the winner! Oh wait, they don't live in the united states...' hehe. But oh well, its good practice! And I'm having fun painting it, and that's all that matters, right?!
