Disappearance!

I was about to ask whether we could go back to having more provided source images for Apprentices - and now they seem to have disappeared altogether! :o

There are dozens of unfinished competition entries in my FN folder because I just can't get them completed in time for most Advanced Contests.

Sorry about a big delay with Apprentice contest posting - things were mega busy with the site move to a new host and site redesign.
Will post the new Apprentice contest in the next 24 hours, and will do it on a regular basis now.

Thanks, Newsy.

I understand that you have been extremely busy - I was just worried that they seemed to have disappeared altogether!

The last apprentice contest (Cessna Jet) disappeared from the front page as the old apprentice contests gradually expire from the front page even if there are no new ones.

The new apprentice contest has just been published. The source photo there is an is interesting material, it will be fun to watch what members will come up with this time

Yeah, I was wondering why the apprentice contests weren't running anymore?Like one month,if that.The apprentice contests used to be running regularly.I have been on this site for some time, and haven't graduated from apprentice yet.Those contests are important to us,especially beginners.With the top notch professional artists chopping in the advanced contests, it makes it nearly impossible for us regular choppers to ever attain a trophy. It's like going up against professional Pixar artists.I love their work,and talent,they are amazing.I sit in awe with my jaw dropped at their incredible work.They inspire me,but dammit,I want a trophy sometime too.My best could never measure up to their talent.Vlad,I really wish another pro contest could be added to this site .I know it would be a major hassle for you,but have you ever thought of this? Adding a pro contest would let the ,big boys and girls compete against themselves on their level .Their could be a graduation out of advanced,like their is a graduation out of the apprentice .Giving us regular choppers a chance to compete against each other, and a chance to win those elusive trophies. Their are many of us Susan Lucci's trying our best to snag a trophy.I am not trying to complain,just wondering if you ever thought of this? I just think it would be a more fair playing ground, for all choppers ,Great and Small

Debbie, I totally understand the reasoning behind the "pro level contests", and I agree they would be beneficial. But they would have drawbacks too - smaller participation and hassles with separate contest creation just for the pro members. So, at the moment the concept of pro contests is still undecided. We might try it and see how it goes, but it will require substantial coding. The current agenda is to totally convert the site to the new design (finish the remaining sections) in the coming weeks.

I am finishing the site private message system now, which is a new functionality and shall be launched in the next day or two.

Produce chops like "Old Lady"... strengthen and build on that style and you will be kicking A55 in the top ranks in no time. You clearly have the talent and ability There is plenty of room at the top and I'll let you in on a little secret. There isn't one A+++ chopper out there that didn't suck in the beginning LOL But I do agree, the apprentice contests are very important. I didn't even know about it at first and was already on my way to winning cups in advanced by the time it dawned on me.

I Think the Apprentice Contest Should get the Top Right Position of the Front Page. Who knows what Greatness Could come from Inspiring a Great New Artist?

If this Site want to build a Future? the Promotion and Cultivation of Those Who would be the Builders of that Future should be extended the Opportunity to Become That Great Future.

You are the Benefactor of a Fantastic Wealth of Digital Artistry Horsepower. Being a Great Steward of the Art's Future Artists would seem logical.

And that's not an Attempt to Steal the Thunder of the Beautiful Things You put into the Site. Just an Observation on Life, Teaching and Future.

Take Care, Vlad
