Yeah that's my sig. It wasn't made in circles... ;) but it's technically just a "tag" on the image. It's on virtually every one of my images in some form.

First let me say: I really don't think this "subject" is a good idea. I like the creativity, but the strictness with which it was presented really makes it feel like all you can do is DIGITAL art. We have alot of people here good with pencils, pens, paint, and tablets...and who aren't great with vectors. I think just "anything circular" would have been more open, and harder to judge, but perhaps a better less strict alternative.

That being said, I also think people should put up or shut up when they have complaints and so here it is:

LIGHT SIDE UP! & DARK SIDE UP!

EDITED Suggestion for topic: MONSTERS! (a little less broad)

No, I definitely appreciate comments like this Wildcard. This is still in its infancy so there's no doubt it will need tweaking.

However, I don't believe this is restricted to digital, you could just as easily do this with a pen and compass, or even with cutout paper. If people feel that the tight "circle" rules need to be lessened a little, I'm all for that, as long as circles are still the theme. However, I did put a lot of effort into mine and I didn't find it that restricting and it was a lot of fun. Plus this is something that people who aren't traditionally artists are trying their hand at :)

I do agree its a good way to get alot of people to participate, and its a fine subject. I think maybe it was the tutorial posted made it really feel like "Ok...this has to be done digitally with all circles"....I mean I was worried about using ovals thats how tight it came across. I was going to draw it, but I mean...who is to say which curve is and isn't from a circle? Perhaps I'm used to going to more strict contests online, it just felt a little restricted. In the future I think it should be noted that the rules AREN'T that strict, just for common knowledge.

But overall I think its fine...I mean...I participated.

BITCH!
Okay, next week I suggest we have number art. Like create a picture that has a number as the base line.
For example:

Can you find the number?
((btw, this penguin is also another submission for this week's circle art contest))

Ooooh yeah wildcard, I meant to mention, it's perfectly fine to do art on paper, but you ought to use a curved edge(oposite of straight edge) and if you can, a compass. (I think I already said this, but,) You can also make 3d models out of spheres, or circlular poetry/lyrics where you can actually read it in a loop and it makes sense. For example:

Lyla had to get her hair redone.
She went to the hair stylist, and got a whole new style done.
On her way back home, she bumped into a strange man.
"Whats that on your head? That hair style, you're part of the Quick Queen gang, aren't you?"
She tried to awnser, but it was too late, he had already pulled a gun on her.
She ran, barely escaping, only to find herself outside the mall again.
There was only one way she could possibly be sure she was safe.
Lyla had to get her hair redone.

Yeah, bad corny story, but you get the concept.
