I took a step out of my comfort zone to enter. There is a section for comments after the entries...and I wasn't sure I wanted to hear what people thought. They've been nice so far. I took a leap out of my comfort zone and posted a link to the contest on my facebook page. Sharing my art with people that I know and care about isn't easy for me. But they've been nice so far too. I originally entered the contest because the top prize is a full version of Adobe CS 5...something that I would love to have but can't afford....and it seemed like it was worth a shot. Now I'm realizing that win or lose, I've already gained a lot from the experience...and that's more important than the prize will ever be.
You can click on the thumbnail if you want to see the design at the contest site. You could vote for it there if you wanted to.
I know that I said the experience was better than the prize....but the experience plus CS 5? That would be better yet! :-)
