The contest over at Sas is over so now I am free to share the links to my kits directly from the blog. The contest was not a great success for me in terms of votes received, but a huge success for number of downloads and skill learned. I hoped to find a place to sell at, but it all remained a beautiful desire.... I am still learning and who knows maybe things will change. A thing I did not like at all during the contest was the importance of popularity, more popularity more votes... or maybe just more relatives voting for you.... But above all I hated begging for votes. I thought it was more based on talent or beauty of kits. Someone else complained about it and the answer this lady got was that popularity is part of the marketing job of a designer. Oh yes it may be true but as I am gonna spend real money on buying kit I would surely buy the most appealing kit according to my taste and not the most popular... Another thing I notice was disregarding the rules... The first round was a sort of general testing ground but in the second round any infringement would have led to exclusion from the contest itself. This is what it was written. But it was not applied, so if you downloaded the kit of the second round just check them out. I did it. Stroke the elements with an outline and you will notice quite a lot of stray pixels. Stray pixels were not allowed .... I am really disappointed about this as I would have expected a little bit more reliability... I pm the site about it but they did not bother to answer. Well it does not really matter I just got the measure of it.
Now on to the fun part. My first round mini kit was Nature Masquerade:

The kit for the second round is called : A deeper kind of friendship.
Credits in the zip files.
So have fun with them, feel free to leave me comments and /or constructive critics.
