Spotlight Gnaw?
Who would want to read that?
Unless it has somethin about how the Quints enslaved the Sharkticons.......Maybe I do want to read it!

But i just noticed something.
On the current winner for cover entry on Spotlight Cosmos I noticed that Cos is standing by one of the characters from Infiltration.Will SP Cosmos tie in with the current Devastation Comic series like some other Spotlights do?

Well these are fake spotlights, not ever going to be released (or maybe some will one day) and the brief said that the characters can be from G1, WW or the IDW universe so i guess we can let that Cosmos entry off. Personally i voted for a different Cosmos entry.

The effing Deuce is that there currently is a *lot* of people trying to view a lot of threads heavy with mostly locally-hosted images. I'm not surprised at all that the server is chugging. May have to wait until the initial rush dies down.

Anyone else having inane troubles registering for the IDW forum?

The IDW forums are set up that the administrator has to hand-approve every registration, and there's so many new people trying to register that there's a long backlog.

Pretty silly setup to me; I would think it'd be less time-consuming to delete the few spammers that bother registering than it would be to process all those registrations all the time. But, eh.

Well,I haven't registered for the IDW forums, but I took a look at Bombshell and Air Raid, and well I have to say that the artwork looks amazing!

I hear now they're only letting people register who agree to vote for Sureshot #2202. It's some kind of Australian by law or something.

The fact it's my piece of art is purely coincidental...

:)

Hi:
Nice thread! Good to see lesser known characters been give the Spotlight and not just the popular ones. My love for Transformers goes beyond the "core characters".

Since I have to register to the forum to vote (and I am lazy and has no time) I will "cast my vote" here (for whatever it is worth).

>> Spotlight: Divebomb
>> Spotlight: Onslaught

These are the two Spotlights I am more eager to see and as of the covers my votes goes for:

Spotlight: Divebomb - #801 JOANA LAFUENTE OLIVEIRA AMARAL
Spotlight: Onslaught - #1504 NATHAN DAVIS

Good luck to everyone who submitted an entry!

I feel your pain. I did Dragstrip (Cameron Brown) but only got 2 votes. But like you said at least we tried our best, and at least we met the deadline :)

I did Sureshot and got 3, but we still got over a week to go people, there might be a late rush. Don't give up hope yet:)

Well, I wish mines wasn't so horrid. At least you all have some votes, I'm wishing for a vote. :( I so wanted to go to round two. And for some reason I can never log in that site. I'm pretty sad about that :( , I always wanted to do their site monthly art contest as a member. Oh well, if it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be.

Vote FIRST GEN aka Steven Serrano for WEIRDWOLF.

I had a pencil, pen, sheet of paper and a scanner to work with, so bear with me.

My drawing is no where near the best but I believe I caught the essence of the Spotlight cover, which some of the much better drawings seem to be lacking.

You should drop either Richter or the board admin an e-mail; I know I had to do that before mine finally got put through and working.

It's too bad this contest is making some people feel bad because they're getting little if no votes or feedback. An unfortunate downside. Nevertheless, I've been seeing some spectaular pieces out there. Woot.

I'm in the Spotlight Getaway camp, ##1106 Lindsay Smith. And when I first saw the polls, I had 2 votes and thought "Aw man...". I was pretty disapointed. Then people started giving me feedback and said they liked my stlye, that it stood out, etc and everything and then I felt great. I may not win, never expected I would though I wished I would get past the first round, but it's nice to know that some people were enjoying my work.

All I can say to people who are feeling bad about how their piece is doing, is to just have fun with it. Don't feel bad. You did your best, and that's all you can expect from yourself. It was fun to enter, the anticipation of the polls going up was huge, and everyone was excited as hell to see the entries. It's all in good fun, so let's just roll with it.
