But do you know of the competition 'Stardoll's Next Top Graphic Designer'? If you haven't its a very cutting edge competition that features young, new, and talented graphical artists who are competing for a 1,000 SDs, an Editorial Spread, be the face of TTT, and 10 free items of clothing of their choice*.
With awesome prizes and great judging with Kim(xxlovexx), Nika(Princess_Kiara1), Eliza(Wooldoor) and Ciara(ciaraleanne), the competition was off to a great start! And we get to see gorgeous graphics each time to fall for and pick a designer to cheer on all the way.
But then.. talking to my friend Ciara, who is one of the judges, she told me some very strange comments made by one of the contestants Lige(Lige07), saying that he wanted to drop out, and then I went to ask Kimberly why he said it.
She said he told her that at first that he was having family issues which is understandable, I know one day I would be excited to use and work on a Stardoll project the and next day something awful happened, so I don't blame him, but then later admitted these things to her:
- "I am opening my empire next year."
- "I just found the whole task sorta stupid... How is that task going to help us in the future."
- "Anyway i got offered to do graphics for one of stardolls most famous blogs. So that is also why I have to quit, to make more time for it. And the prize isn't really that big , you could sell all 6-8 graphics for 1000sd+ lol ... I am not trying to be rude , just being realistic! "
What..? It seemed a bit obscene and selfish to be so ungrateful that someone plans to try to pay you for you hard work and reward you with goodies and yet you tell a judge that its not good enough and basically over-prioritized yourself to the point you can't even work around. And the fact that before it even started he use to tell me how excited he was for it and that he was going to practice really hard, and I actually was rooting for him before now.

So then still talking with Ciara and Kim we saw this comment made by a very angry contestant Nicole(tapstar321.. I mean, CholeDavis).
Saying this in the comments:

Another that she is stated ".. after looking at some of the graphics now I realize that there are two other graphic designer competitors that are at my level of graphic design."
Your level of graphic design? Pfft, that is just plain rude! What a snide comment, thats like saying everyone in the competition is bad and that you are the only real threat, meanwhile you use the same shading the highlighting for hair you do for your clothes.
In addition, after Nicole started to get comments stating how wrong she really was she started to babble on and ended up apologizing in the weirdest of ways.
