The links don't work.  EDIT: I mean the "new gallery links!!!"

Gratz to my friends, Kiya, Charlie and Overlord :3 Great job guys!

EDIT: I liked quenta's video, too. Lots of fun, listened many times! :D
I can't have an opinion on Bearzu's entry, didn't read it (anyone did? What is it about? Good writing style? How about errors? Judges, opinions?)
Didn't think much special about SkearKr0w's entry, I'm sorry. There were better ones.

Wow :D  Thank you very much Guru!  

The neat thing is that I came onto Guru tonight to finally post a new webcomic after the long absence of updates.  This was a very nice surprise.[quote name='quenta' timestamp='1361225579' post='2166226']

I didn't know we had to have something special in our entries (Honestly, there is nothing special about mine). I honestly wasn't expecting to be chosen seeing everyone else's entries. But hey, oh well.

I meant it as "I'm not sure why yours won over a couple of other arts/pictures that were, [u]in my humble opinion[/u], better/more fan-y than your entry".
But then again, that's my opinion, and I wasn't a judge :D
I'm sorry I can't put it any nicer without hurting feelings. Maybe I need to stop voicing my opinion on contests, especially lately.

Gratz to you as well, all the same, I just happen to have strong opinions on contests.


Also, this was the last one I entered. Sorry to my friends and fellow artists here, who liked my work. Catch you in-game!

Thank you Minami, for what it's worth I would have voted you for one the winners.

Thanks, appreciate it Overlord :) It's OK, I don't mind that I didn't win. I probably would have sold the box and bought art supplies LOL

I'm really blown away here. Huge thanks to Guru and to everyone who voted, and congratulations to all the winners.

A good friend of mine summed up my feelings pretty well: "For a piece of literature to be among the winners in a 'give me entertainment quick' internet world... That should tell you that your work is loved and is worth more than words can say."
