      I hope so! I'm looking for someone really special and talented, and everyone seems to have pieces of the criteria, but only one person has been able to achieve criteria number 1 - drawing funny. Everyone can draw but almost no one can draw truly funny - so it's like finding a needle in the haystack.

    I am going to start posting the entries/artist IDs that have captured my attention and have potential. In other words, they are almost there in terms of what I want but some things are missing, meaning they have to integrate it to nail the contest. Here we go - the artists I've got my eyes on are:

    A recurring issue in this contest is that 98% of artists here don't seem to be able to draw facial expressions that are not blank - I'm seeing some good concepts (body forms) but the eyes can't be blank guys - and on top of that, they need to be funny. I have updated the Brief with videos for your inspiration

    Hi everyone, due to being time poor, I will only be able to respond to the high quality artists in this contest who have a really high talent to fulfill the job description and understand the Brief and are giving me something that is what the Brief has asked for - please don't take it personally, I simply don't have much time on my hands to speak to everyone. Good luck.

      Everyone is misunderstanding the Brief - this is not a cat contest. Please study the Brief. I don't want to see cute cats. I want to see cat creatures with imagination. Please note that I wish I could spend more time critiquing everyone's work but it is exhausting so I have decided that I will only spend time with those who show some potential and high quality artistry, as well as understanding of the Brief. I apologise in advance if I only get to rate your work and don't put comments - I am simply time poor and can only spend time with the best

      Hi guys, you should probably know that I am very clear what I am after and nearly hired an artist from this contest who ticked *ALL* the boxes and showed me what deserves to win this contest, so if you are wondering why no one has won this contest yet it is because I have seen outstanding work and I am now comparing everyone's work to that - if anyone meets or exceeds that, they will be hired in an instant. I know everyone thinks the works here are brilliant (and some are but missing some elements), but I have seen outstanding and now I can only hire at that level. The one thing they did that no one else could do was produce funny characters - every character was funny and unique. That's all I can say. It's a shame that person wasn't couldn't go on to be hired but the opportunity is now open to the next best applicant.

    There are a number of very talented people in this contest who generously give their time and take a chance on me. For all the genuine and high quality artists out there who don't win, I would like to let you know I am a very fair employer and all you will all receive a payment. I usually conduct contests by paying a lot of people who generously gave of their time and talent. You know who you are and I may have already spoken with a few of you but this will be a thank you payment you will receive after the contest. In the meantime, I am really looking for someone who can nail those 3 elements - unique rare concept, high quality colour finish and funny facial expressions/emotion. No one has quite nailed all 3 just yet.
