    I vote for BurntTheMacaroni, although I like all of them. I just love the text in her's, the arrangement and the choice of pictures.

    I believe I'm female... least I was the last time I checked. ;)

    And since there's no rule that says I can't vote for my own, that's what I'm going to do. I like all the other ones, but I just love the way this one turned out, I'm quite proud of it. :D

    I didnt put the rule down that people couldnt vote for their own because I thought people would be modest enough not to. ;) But I guess its ok if you want to vote for your own. :)

    5 Days left of voting.

    My vote goes to...Yellodart.

    I just really like it. Great idea with "Sith Happens" at the bottom.
    And how you have his face in his hood- thats just cool.
    Great job everyone, really impressive.

    I didn't vote for myself because I was immodest or because I'm selfish or anything like that. I have always believed that a person voting for their own work shows that they are confident of what they have done, that they believe in their creation and fully support it. That's the message I was attempting to send when I voted for my wallpaper. I am proud and confident of the work I have done and I want people to know that I am.

    If that makes me a bad person, then I guess I am. [face_monkey] [face_devil]

    I'm gonna have to agree with Ice_Ghost.

    Honestly, i like my wallpaper... No one else did Mara, which is cool. I like how everyone pretty much did something different, i just happen to like my wallpaper alot. Although i think everyone did a fantastic job

    Heh, I don't really care about how people define "modest" around here. My thoughts are, if you are proud of what you have done or did, you post your artwork here. Especially if you enter it in contests.

    Me personally, I don't vote in contests I'm a part of.

    Good luck to all contestants for this theme!

    Of course you like your wallpaper the best. I like mine the best, too. I am sure everyone likes their own the best. You wouldn't have entered it if you weren't proud of your work. You don't want to vote for someone else's work because it is like voting against yourself, however, how would it feel if you won by one vote - your own vote.

    If it were an election, or something important in life, of course I would vote for myself. But in a contest like this, it just seems selfish to vote for your own. In graphics contests on live journal, no one is allowed to vote for themselves to eliminate that bias.

    Maybe the solution is that people who enter art should not be able to vote at all, but then there wouldn't be enough votes. I don't think there is a solution, but there is clearly a split.

    I'm inclined to agree with you. I think from now on I'll take a page from your book and not vote if I submit an entry. It just seems better that way.

    I'm not going to scratch my vote. But I won't be voting in the future.

    I may not be participating at all anymore. I'm working full time again and I may not have the time to dedicate to turning out good results. I do enjoy the challenge, but time may no longer permit me to participate.

    Your vote came in a bit to late sorry Handmaiden_Azul, try voting before the closing day next time. ;) I've got the deciding vote from HS29 and it turns out she picked my wallpaper The Darth Vader/Anakin one which makes BurntTheMacaroni and Ice_Ghost11 joint seccond place. :)

    Getting right onto the next contest...

    New theme for this week: Obi-Wan Kenobi - One of the few characters to span through all 6 of the films is the focus of this weeks competition.
    So everyone get those programs fired up and have fun! :D
    Contest open untill Friday 21st April./>

    Congrats to our winner!

    I'm semi-cheating and pulling one out of my hat that I did a while ago, hope you all don't mind - it's completely appropriate for this great theme :D
