Well, the snowstorm is still playing itself out. We got out of work early on Friday - hopefully we get back to work on time Monday (assuming the roads are cleared) because the backlog is building.
As far as the lack of recent "major" content here - I've got a few "large" projects that are *still* very backlogged, additionally, I've got a lot more real-life concerns going on as far as planning for the future. There are tons of concepts I still want to work on with artists I've come across recently, but do not have the time/resources at the moment.
Back to the show....
It's always entertaining when you spike your boss's coffee.
I'll admit, I was kinda busy the last few months with work and some online courses - otherwise I would have done a bit more advertising for this contest. Even so, I'm grateful to have received some excellent entries. The topic was pretty broad, but I think all the entries met the basic concept pretty well.
So let's begin:
Best single [character] caption. Definitely this one by Jezebel. Excellent picture selection, well-formatted - very sweet overall.
Best group caption. TG-Spain submitted the only one, but it's a great concept and the picture fits really well.
Lastly for best sequence, TheUnthinker sent in several, but I really like the concept of the Regression Virus - particularly with the physical changes (working on a few similar concepts at the moment).
Now, to be perfectly honest, in spite of these excellent entries, none of them really jumped out at me visually or as a single standalone image - so I won't be awarding those prizes this time around. Thanks to the participation though, I will be able to send $50 to support Rachel's Haven as well.
I'm not yet sure about contests for 2016, but if I do run more, they'll be announced here and elsewhere.
Well, things have been a little slow, but I do still expect a few new surprises in the upcoming month - hopefully. Either way, things are progressing - just have a few other real life financial commitments ongoing simultaneously as I start looking further to the future.
Before I go any further though - a little reminder that Caption Contest #3 ends this Friday. I've seen a couple entries already, but please double check the deadline (midnight EST - although I won't be checking till Sat. morning) - if you plan to submit something.
Also, I am aware of the upcoming SizeCon as well - this next April. I am somewhat intrigued - as regular visitors to my site are probably aware - shrinking/growth isn't a huge draw for me, but the organizers have also emphasized that other size interests including Weight Gain and other somewhat different body concepts will also be featured - so it's definitely something I'll consider depending on my work schedule. It's on a weekend...but it is in NYC.
If you're interested in seeing more - there's the Kickstarter - which is also a way to get advance tickets.
Considering that a number of folks previously featured here might be showing up - this might be a good opportunity to network and meet a few very cool folks.
Well, it's been too long since we had an update here - projects in the works as always, but work has been more of a distraction than expected (that and having the water turned off in my house yesterday - I love spending Saturday in the office writing a term paper).
Meanwhile back in Princess' house, Dad's just starting the morning....
Happy Halloween! It may or may not be a coincidence that my only real Halloween-themed commission this year is also from Pink-Diapers - I've been working with them a lot lately and the projects have been turning out better and better over time.
While there have been fewer posts in general lately, it's more a matter of consolidation - and waiting on pending pieces.
This set was actually a pretty tight rush job (ie. very short notice) - so any issues with the design are entirely due to me waiting till the last second to actually commission something for this year. Frankly I think it turned out beautifully. Yes, that is Mistress Arianna - for those keeping count.
Nobody's resources are inexhaustible, but with your assistance, I can continue providing high quality commissions from a wide variety of artists in a variety of styles.
