sharkmermaid: I have submitted one of my drawings with a mermaid in the 'doodles' contest. Would I be allowed to add this same drawing to this contest? ( 5 years and 498 days ago )
Eladine: thats gonna be a question for the mods ( 5 years and 498 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Sorry sharkmermaid you can't use the same entry in another contest at any time unless it was removed and can be entered in the Mixed Media Contest. The drawing you speak of is a traditional drawing and wouldn't qualify as a photoshop image anyway. A pencil sketch is okay as a basis for an entry in a Photoshop Contest but the final image must be created with a graphics program. ( 5 years and 498 days ago )

Contest Moderator: @ macarhign you can use your own pencil sketch as a basis for your entry but it must be your own sketch and not someone elses's work and the final entry must be all computer work and not use the scanned in hand drawn sketch. ( 5 years and 497 days ago )

spaceranger: @ detractor- I am not the moderator for this contest but I did notice you attempted to post a red flag comment. When you want to post a red flag comment you must enter the reason first and then click the box next to the flag icon. Your message didn't register because you clicked the box first so only your name shows.
Do NOT use the contest comments, entry comments or the forum to discuss a problem with your entry. That's why we have the red flag system. You can also discuss a problem by contacting a mod directly. I checked your entry and you can contact me to discuss the reason for the removal.

I did this with a different model but the source needed permission to be used. The DA artist never got back to me. Due to the time crunch I had to improvise and created using my own model image. I also used my bloody tear stock and hair stock. The image was inspired by the darker classic versions of Rapunzel and the Little Mermaid. Not all fairy tales have a happy ending after all. The other images were Deviant Art Stock and are listed below. (5 years and 490 days ago)
