That really does suck. It's a lot of people at my school who can get jobs like its nothing, but I can barely get an application accepted, no matter how hard I try. Sorry OP, I know your pain.

Maybe OP shouldn't try next time, will probably win a full scholarship, AND be able to sell the peice. Lol

I know that feeling, but sometimes trying too hard can ruin any art form. Sometimes simplicity works far better...I'm a perfectionist and sometimes I think I probably mess up my art because I've decided the first, second and third result isn't good enough.

you don't know if the winner tried or not. I suck at being creative and if I decided to submit an art piece in a competition it'd most likely be crap compared to other's but I'd still have an equal chance at winning.

#72 If you have an equal chance of winning even if your work is admittedly crappy compared to the others', something is very wrong about that competition.

I always hated that! When I was in high school, kids always cheated and I was getting Cs but I had my pride. OP, you have your pride too!

Those who do put forth an effort should move to a different direction in their life anyway. If you love to paint, awesome. Keep it as a hobby and impress people while you show your creativity and effort on a website or marketing graphics for your paycheck

Is the winky face implying an underlying sexual meaning to children's arts and crafts? I do find myself aroused whilst trying to write my name and making macaroni t-rexes

I did when I was younger we made Christmas tree ornaments and did the frame outline in macaroni and sparkly glue /paint lol

Then I guess it depends on which "they" you're talking about. Most sayings can be presented as "you know what they say..." with "they" simply meaning people, so I don't understand why you would be confused with that one. The second "they" is referring to the "smart people." Thus, "they live long" means "the smart people live long."

Sorry man. I'm honestly not sure why I commented in the first place, then decided that I had to defend myself. Also, I accidentally thumbed my own comment, so sorry for that too.

No big... Not like I'm a mod. :-P I'm still just confused what intellect has to do with artistic talent and who these people are spouting off random sayings...

Oh I'm so sorry it happend to you. Are you sure he didn't deserved the scholarship ? Maybe he put as much effort in it than you did. Haha who am I kidding, good people always get screwed. Sorry anyway :)

its all about how you bs it to someone these days. ive never liked renaissance paintings but I appreciate the effort that went into it. Some douchebag left a pile of rubbish on the floor and called it art. the poor cleaner got roasted for clearing it up mistaken it for garbage!! op its not always about the competition so I hope your master piece brings joy to many who see it.

I remember reading a while ago about a case where the cleaning staff left their tools in a corner near the exhibits and people started taking photos of it thinking it was part of the artworks.
