I would like to mention that all entries to this contest were amazing, from all those who did and didn't make it to the finals. Everyone has worked really hard for months and has put out their best works. There were a lot of people I have personally looked up to and I would like to thank everyone for keeping me motivated and excited to keep going till the end.
I do have one part I would like to get clarification on though, specifically relating to 2D guidelines (NOT anyone's skill level). I do want to emphasize that I do not mean to be disrespectful to anyone's work - again, everyone from selected people have amazing ideas and techniques. But, my understanding was the rules outlined both under the guidelines and brief were supposed to be strictly followed to be qualified; and any deviation would result in disqualification. Yet, I have noticed some of the finalists have NSFW material, or are missing front and back views. Could someone from the moderators kindly clarify this, or please correct me if I am wrong and have overlooked something. Thank you !
