I concede defeat on the nude in public Tikal art challenge between Canastus and myself. The week will have passed at 4:00pm today, however, I will not be around at that time today as I will be celebrating American Independence Day.
The final favorite count at the time I am conceding is my 68 to his 86, a difference of only 18 votes. I believe the challenge overall was pretty fair, as I advertised the pic on Inkbunny and he advertised on Deviant art. Canastus drew a really good Tikal piece; I could easilly argue that both pics were better than the other for very different reasons. For example, he brought out pornography while I stuck to simple nudity. His is drawn more sensually, and is certainly shaded better. However, I feel mine was more on model with the characters, better exemplified the theme of nude in a public setting, and also my background was better. His perspective was a little off on his second frame, and also the swiming pool mysteriously changed from elevated to ground level. However, the human characters were not perfectly detailed on mine, and I changed the setting between the two frames to illustrate that she was walking around, but the references I used for public settings varyed by architecture, etc, and so this was a little strange. All in all, I felt even matched, despite very different styles.
Congradulations to Canastus, we can now say without any hesitation that he can draw Tikal better than I can, as this was the result of him winning. But I had a lot of fun making the picture, and feel I put all my somewhat limited artistic abilities into it. Thanks again to the 68 who enjoyed my picture! It is my 3rd most favorited FA pic, right behind my colorizations of MaxBlackrabbit's sonic pictures.
Now of course, a friend of Canastus Roy_McCloud (https://www.furaffinity.net/user/roymccloud) promised that he would make an image his viewers all requested if Canastus were to win. So I will be the first to request him to draw a picture of him fucking himself in the ass.
