    Alright guys, I realise we're more than a little after the due date here, haha. Don't worry tcrfelton, I'm allowing your entry since the MAC wasn't officially closed. Speaking of which...

    Submissions are now closed. The poll thread is over here!

    Congrats tcrfelton for winning the last MAC!

    Alright, since we've all been awaiting X and Y with bated breath, our new theme for MAC #27 is...

    X and Y redesign!

    I think everyone saw something like this coming. We want you redesign the final evolutions of the XY starters! As some of you may know, the final evos of the starters have already been leaked, which is why this is being called a redesign, but having seen those designs isn't necessary for entering the contest. Just go for whatever you think they should look like! Feel free to redesign between 1 and 3 of them, as well.

    http://www.pokemonxy.com/en-us/pokemon/starters/ gives a good reference for the prevos, for those of you who haven't seen them yet.

    Deadline will be November 12th.

    This is very early, but I want to submit my...um...submission for this MAC.
    So.. I chose Chespin because when I see Chesnaught, I do not see it being the final evolution of this cute grass starter.
    In my opinion, it makes the least sense.
    So..here you have it! Chespin's final evolution Redesign!

    This contest theme is perfect for me. Admittedly, I was pretty disappointed when I first saw Delphox. Braixen made me so happy because I adore witch characters, and Delphox is well… a Wizard. So I made a full-fledged witch Delphox design! I like it a lot better sob

    Well, that's a wrap. Maybe having a MAC during the month of XY's release was a mistake... haha. Either way, poll for these two will be going up soon.

    Hi all, just letting everyone know that we're putting MAC on hold until after Christmas, simply because 1. Holidays! 2. Many of our usual artists already have a lot on their plate with secret santa and I don't want to overstress people. If you can't live out the next month without contests, you can try your hand at the facebook profile picture contest or maybe even submit something for the facebook banner! See you all next month!

    PS: If anyone wants to recommend a theme for the next MAC, feel free to shoot me a PM.

    Alright, apparently when I say after Christmas I mean WELL after Christmas. Time for MAC #28! Our theme is...

    David and Goliath! No, not the literal biblical story. This is Smogon! Show an LC mon kicking ass in OU.

    Tentative deadline is Feb 22nd.

    Meh. Haven't done pokemon drawing or any form of drawing (digital or otherwise) for a really long time now, but I'm just going to post it here for C&C and improve my drafts as time goes by, though I'm not expecting to win anything. And I don't know how I could have mistook LC for NU and made a totally different piece. :p

    Gigababy : I like it, but first thing that comes to mind is that Goliath is usually portrayed as larger than David. I'ts obvious that competitively, Jirachi is more powerful than abra, but your pic seems to visually switch the roles of the two pokemon. The Idea is right - Abra is defeating Jirachi - but visually it almost seems like Abra is the Goliath and Jirachi is David...I hope you get what I'm saying and I really look forward to seeing your next drafts!

    Ahh. I honestly don't get how I could have missed that seeing that I'm Chirstian. Shame on me. :O
    Thanks for the feedback, Andrew and I'll work on it. ;)

    Hey Andrew,

    Made the edits and swapped their proportions around. Is this better? :)

    I think Jirachi in general is a bad "Goliath," because it's small, cute, and non-intimidating :3

    Gigababy One thing I think that would improve your look is the spots where your lines don't *quite* connect or overshoot a little bit. For example, Abra's left ear is disjointed, and Abra's left hand (bottom part) has some extra lines sticking out. Another place is Blissey's bottom right nurse's cap thing. If these small areas (and a couple others) are cleaned up imo it would look a lot cleaner!

    Also, the shadow under Abra doesn't *quite* line up, which looks a bit odd.

    Hey V0x, thanks for the feedback. I've tried to clean up a little more, and then end result is below.

    Looks cleaner! There's that one spare black line on blissey's right arm tho that you might want to edit out to green to match the rest of her outline, easy fix :)
