Congratulations winners !

I have made a decisions that may surprise you, but I think it's the only fair thing to do. I really never thought that my entry would win. It's not an original idea. Yes, I made the entire thing from scratch and pre-existing textures I made (wood and metal), but the real originality of the piece belongs to the genius of Dali. I just recreated his piece in my own style. I just wanted to try to do it, and that to me was the goal, not to win the comp. I worked hard on it and was very pleased with the end result and I really appreciate everyone who voted for me, but it's just not, in my mind, deserved. Don't get me wrong, I love it when I win a comp, but in this case I should have made a different original entry and just posted this one in one of the umbrella forums. So, again, thanks to all of you who voted for my piece, I really appreciate it and am very humbled by your appreciation of my artwork.

So again, in my mind, the only fair thing to do is to promote all of the entries one place. :D

Winners are....

I'm just happy that you all entered. I have to say that your entries are very original and entertaining. I love and enjoyed every single one of them.

Thanks :D

Possum

p.s. Barbieq and Sarkut you get to choose the next theme. I'm thinking that it's time to change the awards. Maybe I'll hold a comp to see what people come up with for awards for the WOTW comp.
