I'd love to do more events. I love to sculpt. I just get disheartened knowing that the judge doesn't like me.
I agree with some that said yours was their favorite, as it was one of mine as well !! also I don't hate you *hug*
and while I can't know for sure, even if a GM , Mod or Staff disliked your person, it shouldn't affect when voting for this kind of stuff, as this should be judged based on what they asked (in this case, a Hat) and leave aside grudges and favoritisms.
And after seeing the winner lists I do wonder if this was done without favoritisms (or as Taiga said, if they even looked at the making process) since I have some troubles with a couple of the winners.
I'm not saying they were bad btw, but some really show a lot more dedication and skill than others..
