many of these are often outdated styles, some did go out of the usual though, why is paint.net so often outdated style art?

it's not great for tablet drawing so all the drawn styles are more or less not going to happen. That leaves mostly digital stuff like 24-bit, pixel art, and whatever photomanips you get with filters

I would really like to enter these SOTW competitions, but they do seem to be morphing into an object of the fortnight competitions of late sadly. I do understand from my mum that the winner of the previous competition picks the next topic, but I think they are getting more harder to join in IMO.

Not really.

 

First of all, your Object entry has to be 100% PDN while your Signature entry can be anything. Using a clipart is ok (with a link). Using a photo is ok (check the Dream plugin SOTW, for example). Some people find it funny and inspiring to make it "all PDN" - just like OOTF - but you don't have to. Creative use of stock images have won many times in the past.

 

What matters is your idea, and how you improvise within it, using various effects and styles - and tricks.😏 One of the biggest SOTW challenges is size because 500x200 feels very limited sometimes. It is hard but interesting.

Well Said, most especially for me that have really forgotten the specifics of each.  It is good to have young questioning eyes and minds to keep us on our toes. :mrviolet:

When the prefect paint.net image is created, I will still be wondering "How they Do that?"- sigh☺️

This has probably been asked a lot before but I have a question on SOTW or really any competition. If you are a participant in the competition are you allowed to vote? And if you are allowed to vote, can you vote for yourself?

Voting for yourself would be biased, but I don't see how it would be unfair.  Each person's votes are counted equally.

 

If your art is high quality, you should vote for it.

Imagine if a politician didn't vote for him/her self; it would be an admission of no-confidence of one's self.
