Re: MEATeors


Just a comment/suggestion. I think your thumbnail could really benefit from a different image. It's hard to make anything out in the current one. Maybe zoom out a little bit and show the whole planet, or get some of the fork in there. Something like that to give the prospective voter a little more to go on.

I personally click on every single entry because I don't want to miss out on any hidden gems. But I know there are probably several people that just skim over the thumbnails and only click on the ones that look slightly interesting to them.

It's something I struggle with every week too...trying to figure out what image to use for the thumbnail. Not always easy.
Good luck.

Yeah, I see what you're saying. Here's what happened:
I was trying to think of an idea last night, then I thought of that. I'm awful at executing ideas, as you can see. By the time I got to the thumbnail, I had already seen the ones that are doing well, and I know I don't really have a chance. So I was kind of just way over it by that time, so I opened the design file and didn't resize it at all, I just threw it on.

Long story short; I'm pathetic.

Well, every week I know I don't stand a chance either. I go in with high hopes thinking "this might be the one", but then soon realize I was just kidding myself.

Although, I do enjoy sketching the pics in the first place. And I'm having fun learning to use my new graphics tablet. So, in the end, it's still worth it.

Re: MEATeors


have a bit more confidence in your work. I think the idea and design has merit. I would definitely take styles recommendation on the thumbnail and resub this with a better detail. right now from the thumbnail it looks like a dragonfly. try it and you might be surprised by the response.
