Don't Mess With Puffy Freddy by trivostudio Don't Mess With Puffy Freddy by trivostudio
Here it is, my 2nd entry for Mentos Contest.

This is my 2nd digital piece, and my 1st digital painting. It took me forever to learn how to paint with Photoshop OMG it's super freaking hard!!! haha but I got it now.

Before: Freddy, the puffer fish, is surrounded by strange flesh-eating creatures (please don't bother asking what kind of fish they are because I have no clue haha). Looks like the life of the little fish has ended.

After: Freddy puffed, and scared them all away. HE'S STILL ALIVE! :D

Favorites and comments are MORE THAN WELCOME!! Thanks for taking a look at my work! :)

Greatest expression I've ever seen on a fish. Puffy just made my day with that look. ^_^

aww thank you. that means a lot to me :)

you know I really start to think it's because of the template. I added some texture to it instead of keeping it white. but idk... oh well... hopefully there will be new contests soon.

but thank you very much :)

i honestly just think the 25 semifinalists, atleast some, were very poorly chosen. :/
there were some beautiful ones, like yours, that i was hoping would get in, because they were original ideas, and beautifuly executed...but didn't? and some of them didn't even have anything changing the template or anything.

i wouldn't even consider the texturing on the template in yours a "change" to it.

*sigh* im kinda bummed that i didn't get in, not to namedrop or anything but there were some in there that had the same basic idea as mine, but were not executed as well. i mean, of course my idea wasn't the most original, but in technical terms, i would think it's decent. :shrug:

I understand. I'm really losing faith in DeviantArt right now. I didn't even sleep the night before this was due to try to finish it, and believed it would get in.

I didn't sleep 2 nights in a row for the Alice in Wonderland contest, but at least I lost with pride. those pieces were beautiful. but this? This is a joke.

i so know what you mean, last night i was totally thinking i'd win something. i mean, i definitely wasn't shooting for top 3 or something, but i was so sure i was gonna be in the top 25.
*sigh* just a really really huge downer. :/ when you think you're a shoo-in but are totally mistaken.

:hug: but hey,if it's any consolation, just know that it definitely wasn't any fault on your part, its just very poor judging. if there was some sortof change in the judges, i would definitely, without a doubt say they would pick yours in the top 3.

Haha no wonder he'd looked so familiar! xD You think the puffer fish managed to get out of the plastic bag at the end of the movie? :P
