So here's the idea.
1. You must pick a base emotion, and express it as fully as possible without any facial features present.
2. No popular characters, the character must be original.
3. Any medium, any idea.

I wasn't trying to sound like an 'e-prick' earlier. Its hard to get your point across on message boards without it coming off sounding all preachy and higher than thou. I was just sayin' to be sayin'...you know, before someone else came in sayin' the same thing...sorta. Know what I'm sayin'?
Since everyone is relating a version of what went down, I figured I should chime in. When I excepted the challenge I took the "faceless" concept as figuratively. That would explain why although my protagonist has a blank expression, you can see by his act of carrying this child through a dangerous cave is conveying strength and resolve. So I didn't get the concept correct, I already apologized to my competitor via PM.
Arguing on the internet is like winning a hard-boiled egg eating contest. Even if you win, you're still a dumbass.
In PUMMEL its a written rule that you can't vote for yourself -- and, although I know that this draw off is NOT part of PUMMEL - not voting for your own piece has always been considered part of the etiquette of the proving ground.
The fact that you've said that you 'usually' don't vote for yourself implies that you HAVE voted for yourself in previous matches -- and its just kinda, well, 'wrong'. If you think your piece is better than your opponents then just don't vote.
