How long is voting going to be open? Need to know when I need my victory speech prepared by.

It will close when I decide it's time to close it (in other words, when there had been no new votes given in a few days)

Great, now I will have to vote once every day for a few months just to ruin it for y'all.

As Janice still hasn't observed the vote count, I'm in a superposition of having both voted and not voted.

I'm not voting for ethical reasons. Having people vote on art is counterproductive since the winner doesn't reflective on any particular point of view.
The judge should JUDGE! Art by committee is normally not very good.

I'm so torn between Mega's, who looks like he put the most amount of time into his submission, and Alodic's, who looks like he didn't draw a librarian dragon with boobs.

I voted for Mega because I think his skills have come a long way since seeing his first tablet sketches. Seeing progress pleases me more than purple dragon knockers.

@Aistarin: Thanks!

I defend my dragon knockers under the "Need to learn to draw all kinds of anatomical shit somehow, and practice is a good a method as any" escape clause of learning artists. :3
Also I don't think I overdid the breasts, proportionally. Could tone the shadows down a bit, those accentuate them a bit too much

Also voted.

I started the voting because this way to no one can say I voted for the user, not the work of art. I don't find my opinions objective enough (objective opinions, really...?).

Also, I did not know we have a user called "beep beep lettuce". That vote must be legit.

I'm not asking for objective opinions, anyone, even computers can do that. I am asking for opinions generally and to be critical of ones own judgement.

With art, things are interpreted differently since it is usually designed to elicit an emotional response. Some may be appealing, inspiring, disgusting, horrific, captivating etc. By being aware of ones own feeling and understanding why you feel that way, you can better explain to others why enjoy something you like. They don't have to agree with you since there are other forms of art that are to their taste. But being able to explain your taste is what makes good criticism.

This is why I say going democratic is counter productive. By delegating you taste over to others, who don't really agree with you nor care, you are basically saying you have no taste of your own. You are saying your opinion is everyone else opinion, which is thoughtless and lazy.

Personally, none of these works are to my taste. I would prefer something with more action in it but skillfully drawn enough not to be replicated easily. That is my opinion and you are free to disagree with me.

Oh, so you wanna be serious, maz?! Well, it is ON!!!

To me, this whole so-called "art jam" is an interesting art piece. A spontaneous explosion of art, trolling, dedication, randomness and porn.

This has no reason to exist, but it does and it's beautiful.

This "art jam" makes me feel like I am part of something unique.
"THIS IS HAPPENING AND I AM HELPING IT HAPPEN AND IT WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN AND I AM FEELING THE EXISTENCE OF UNIQUE MOMENT AND AND AND..."
This is what I feel.

X years later there will be a moment when I'll stop and remember: "Oh shit, I was 21 years old and there was this website called 64Digits and people posted weird pictures once! What the hell was that?!"

I appreciate every submission equally because they create this strange moment of my life.

@ Zuurix
In all honesty, this is what I wanted to hear. None of this voting crap waters down opinions down to the lowest common denominator. Art that is focus tested, demographically targeted, in offensive and easy to market is not art at all. Thanks for your honesty.

Also, PORN? WHAT PORN? There has been no porn.

Edit:
I take that back. PS, you got the antenna wrong.
