[Edit]Just over a day until this closes! Remember to read the rules, if you don't follow them all/aren't eligible, you can not has book goodness![/Edit]

Firstly, thank you so much for your birthday wishes, I appreciate it :hug: - although let's not acknowledge that I'm getting older mkay? :D

So let's get down to it... I've been given a load of copies of my book Adobe Master Class: Illustrator and I've recently given one away via my Facebook page (ps: go likie!) and I'm planning to do the same here! Read on to find out more...



All you have to do to enter is to be devwatching me (well dur that's how you're reading this!) and leave a comment and +fav! I'm going to be randomly picking which person wins, so what you leave as a comment is up to you, as long as it's a positive comment! Let's make this a good, positive event!

Here are the rules:

1) You must be devwatching me and leave at least one positive comment and +fav this blog!

2) You must be 18 years old or over - I will need your address and I don't want any parents getting angry at me because their minor has shared private details with me!

3) You can comment as much as you wish but your comment(s) will only count as one entry into this give away! Deviants using multiple accounts to enter will be disqualified.

4) My relatives and contributors to the book are excluded from entering. You guys will be getting your own copy ♥

5) Your comment must be posted on this blog by Monday 4th February at 23:59:59 GMT.

6) The winner will be contacted via dA notes. If no response has been received within a week of the note being sent, the next eligible random will be declared the winner.

7) The prize will be sent via Recorded Delivery via Royal Mail. I am not responsible for the condition it arrives in, however it will be packaged well to ensure the best I can possible it arrives to you safely. It will be mailed at my earliest convenience, I will send you a note once it's sent.

8) Should you wish the book to be signed, please request this and what you'd like me to write when I contact you!

9) The prize is not transferable and is not for resale.


Good luck! :love:

Since I lost Internet connection at home (yes, it's possible!) my creativity is slowly dieing... I miss that vector inspirations - they always give me a kick to work. I think that the book would be perfect, so I'll try!

Ah, the positive things I can say about you :D I'd like to thank you for all the work you've put into defining what the heck a vector is for me and encouraging me to use this form of digital art :D Your tutorials and tricks are really helpful and have helped me improve. I think you are a great community volunteer.

A signed copy would be awesome if I'm luck enough to win :P

How awesome it is that you have published your first book? I'm so proud! :love:

I remember having one of the old Master Class books (both Photoshop and Illustrator) and they were really helpful in my understanding of the software. I'm sure yours is much more awesome though. :eyes:

aite.
i'm not here to win a copy of your book.
(geesh. that's not a very 'positive' way to start. not looking so good for me so far, right? hrmm.)
no. i'm here to find out how to buy a copy!
i've had years and years of experience with illustrator (once upon a time i used it
professionally, along with p'shop, quark, etc,...),...and i wasn't too bad at it for the purposes
i used it for,...
HOWEVER,...when it came to using it creatively?
I TOTALLY SUCKED!!
seriously.
i did.
(i have a list of references if you'd like to see them.)
i don't know, maybe it was the traditional artist in me rejecting the digital artist in me. *shrug*
but man, when i see an artist like yourself using illustrator the way you do,...it totally BLOWS my MIND!
so maybe i'll pick the rusted locks of my brain thingie and try opening it up once again.
i mean, i'm definitely part of the crowd that truly believes you can teach an old dog new tricks.
heck. i have to be!
i'm an old dog!!!
;)
anyway,...
i've got my link. (even checked out the sample content. very cool!)
so i'll go now and take my blathering with me.
:)

Oh wow! Here's my positive message:

I haven't ever won anything in my life -- but then, I never thought I could ever make a decent vector either. 7 months ago, I decided to dabble in the wonderful (and at times frustrating) world of vectors and just this month I was able to produce a piece that I'm not completely ashamed of, haha. All thanks to you and your tutorials! I always look to your work, workmanship and quirky wit for inspiration.

So here's to the audacity of trying something new, whether it is creating vectors, joining contests or commenting on your vector hero's blog for the first time. (And hoping I win this awesome book in the process! Teehee.) Cheers! :)
