I heard the Lady with the Zebra got first, very shameful imo. Looks like the artist just slapped on the scribbles at random spots. Way to be creative with the scribbles.

It's so sad how messed up this all was. Cheaters here and there.

But I think my own piece broke some rules as well. I was a bit unsure about what I was actually allowed to do. But this idea really was the first thing that popped into my head when I looked at the skribble lines. So I would probably have done it even if I knew I couldn't:shrug:

But just to check; I was not allowed to use a reference and I was not allowed to use Harry Potter theme? Here is my contribution: [link]
How many rules did I break? :XD:

Bit depressing that A) so many ineligible pieces were chosen in the first place, and that B) so many people don't realize that copying a "reference" work - even if it is freehand - is still considered cheating for any contest.

I really thought so too, at first. She did post a step-by-step of her process, though.

However, the use of Jessica Alba's face still poses a problem, since you're not supposed to use a likeness of any person without their express written consent.

UPDATE TO THE CHEATER AND COPYRIGHT INFRINGER.

The Copyright infringer semi finalist, !ZtrikerZ :iconztrikerz:, closed his account for admittedly ripping work from this site [link] in his submission called "Rebellion" also removed with account. He closed his account because he had nothing to lose but a 1 month membership, which brings us to the next delinquent which has more at stake to lose, so he will not likely admit to not following the rules. Although, its inevitable that it will be removed, just a matter of by him or dA.

The next culprit is fatihatci :iconfatihatci: the second place cheating winner and the deviation he submitted is [link]. His cheating is just as clear as the former. This is his original of that work he took a year ago [link] You will notice his signature and date on the picture just like all the deviations in his gallery. Even further, you can look at [link] and scroll to "Camera data" and notice that he took this image on Sep 13, 2010, 3:07:47 PM with his Canon Camera he just added the scribbles where his signature was and something to one of the fishes, just wow. Absolutely no words for this kind of behavior and its not fair to the other artists who followed the rules.

SOLUTION IN PROGRESS
The second place winner will be removed and the third place winner bumped up to his place. The semi-finalists will get a replacement for the other infringer and judging will take place for a new third place winner.

Also, the cyborg lady for using Jessica Alba's likeness without written consent, and the "You're a Wizard" and the luchadores poster for infringing on another party's proprietary rights, all forbidden under this bit of the Official Rules:

"By submitting the Work, Entrant represents that (i) (s)he has the unrestricted right to submit the Work; (ii) all persons whose name or likeness appears in the Work have unconditionally consented in writing to their appearance in the Work and unconditionally granted entrant in writing the right to submit the Work subject to these Official Rules, a copy of which consent and grant will be furnished to the Sponsor upon request; and (iii) the Work does not infringe upon any third party's proprietary or other rights. Entrant may use licensed brushes and textures in the Work."

That's 5 out of 25. That's 20% of all the semi-finalists. That's unacceptable, unfair to all those who followed the rules who lost out on those five spots, and an insult to those who were chosen who played the game right. One of the rule-breakers is an outright cheater, and that landed him 2nd place?

Unacceptable. Inexcusable.

nm on the luchadores, I was totally mistaking something there for something else. My bad. The rest of the comment stands, though, that's still an unacceptable number of violations that got through in the first place.

Hey, just to give you some examples of pieces, which really would have deserved to win this contest:

1. [link] -- I think to use the same scribble two times, creating a cute looking AND a terrifying creature with different emotion, is what makes this a masterpiece! Plus the coloring and overall mood is just amazing!! (The artist is only 17 by the way!!)

2. [link] -- Thats what I call creative and colorful! The expression and position of the woman is wonderful and the picture has strong emotions! This is true art!!

3. [link] -- This is cute, creative and perfectly drawn.. what do u want more??!!

This just to mention some... These would have deserved to win! I know, it were also the one that gained a lot of popularity in the contest and many say its just because they have lots of watchers and stuff, so DA probably thought: well, then lets pick some of the unknown pictures... There was a picture, which had 0!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! favourites when it came into the semi-finals!!! Dont you think, that favs are also an indicator for the quality of a picture?? Being on the front page of the contest doesnt mean, these artists didnt spend many hours and effort to create their works!! Dont you think it has to mean something that they have a lot of favs??.... well, I am just upset! Instead DA picked a cheated fish-lady with a tiny photoshopped tattoo on her arm, including the lines, wow, how creative! well done DA!... >:(

Let me clarify the situation. Many users report that several of the finalists (including me) stolen or plagiarized images of other artists, others say it took the images, used Photoshop and published

In my case, I reference an image of Design Chapel [link] but did not use the original image, is entirely made by hand (using a tablet) without using photoshop. [link]

Now, why? because "Rebellion" was a secondary work for this contest, my main weapon for this contest was [link] but was not chosen, even I was surprised that "Rebellion" was a semifinalist for I knew it was not an original work, and used simply as an experiment, in fact I used 3 images for the contest, since the rules were somewhat confusing.

is not easy to please everyone, and I realize seeing as crude messages, trying to make clear the authenticity of images, plus it seems to be some kind of threat from other users.

Thanks for reading this...

Like I said in response to this post in the other thread, the Design Chapel robot in question was not referenced so much as copied in design. Intentions aside, you shouldn't copy designs you don't have licence to in work that you publish, especially not when you submit it to a contest, and especially if you don't credit the original source. For the record, this isn't hating on you, it sounds like it was a mistake that got blown up for everyone to see by lazy judges, but do you understand why people are upset? It's not personal, it's a problem with the judging.

Though, looks like it's being removed because the artist himself withdrew. Look in the winner's thread. ZtrikerZ, thank you for that show of integrity. I know you didn't mean to be in the center of an explosion, and I do respect that you're taking action to fix a mistake.

Hopefully on more than this one. It's a big example of judging laziness for a lot of reasons, and significant for that, but there are so many other problems that need addressing. Anyway, someone getting SOME response back finally is nice to hear.

Cheating semifinalists, an art thieve who won the second place, you picked the most ugly pictures as semifinalists, nearly none of them used the scribble with much creativity... is this an april fools joke?? did you want to make us angry and upset? I just dont understand that!! None of all the amazing pieces I have seen in this contest made it to the finals... I cant believe this is real... what did you do, seriously? If you dont make a WHOLE NEW rejudge with qualified judges and not little children, then I bet many people will be highly upset!! hah, its almost funny...

For the record, 2nd place isn't an art theft, but a pic from 2010 doctored up withe a couple of tweaks for this contest, which is still in violation of the rule that entered works be created specifically for the contest. Not to mention the slapped-on fish frill and tattoo hardly fulfills the creative use and integration of the skirbbles criteria...
