    I was planning to enter but am I now ineligible or is it only if you're published at the time of entering that you're not allowed to?
    If I well remember, you can partecipate if you already worked for a publisher, but only if it isn't on the top 5 most important\biggest publishers of your country. There is a list of american publishers that will get you out of the contest, and this rule for people from other countries. I don't think you''ll have any problems, especially because the contest you won will give you work in the near future, but not before the end of the Top Cow contest.

    Hopefully we'll get an announcement today about the closing of the first deadline and a rough estimate of when to expect the feedback. Good luck everyone ����

    I did! Got a few notes that went straight to the point and 100% agree with, too. Albeit short, it's been some of the best feedback I've got in quite some time.

    My feedback,

    "John, these pages are well on their way. Nothing really mechanically wrong with them, but I'd be curious to see them pop with a little polish. Not just cutting out any minor anatomy/perspective errors, but also playing with the medium to show us something cool and new."

    I think it's very encouraging! I am confused by what to do next...

    Do I fix my perceived weaknesses or submit new pages with different approaches?

    Any input is welcome.

    I'd take that as it is and fix. Double check perspectives and anatomy issues/proportion throughout and correct where needed. Ensure the figure work is strong, the characters pop with clean lines. And then give them something extra special. McFarlane did spaghetti webbing, where can you add some detail? Then fingers crossed. Good luck man!

    Richard, these are definitely on their way. I'd advise you to keep a level of consistent detail whenever possible, however, as some of your faces and close-ups don't quite match the complexity of others.

    I’m on it. Great concise feedback.
    Thanks again for the pointers as well as this great opportunity.

    The feedback for my script:

    "first off - don't script in all caps. It can really mess with the letters phase. Additionally, keep the structure of the page in mind - you can only fit so many panels per page, and only so many captions and words per panel."
