Watchers

Friends

Yep so another update to the results, I did leave it open until last night because I knew :iconanubhavg: had another screen-grab stashed away somewhere (he did send me a note) - So......

Despite me sort-of announcing that :iconjadeharlei: with 3300 Watchers; 100,986 pageviews and 15,025 comments won the competition the actual winning screenshot came from :iconanubhavg: with this one 

3000 by Anubhavg

With 
Pageviews : 100,985, Watchers : 3,300, Comments : 15,025 - that is just 1 less pageview than :iconjadeharlei:!!!!

So I am afraid that the winner who wins 1000 points has to be :iconanubhavg: Congratulations :cake:

However I cannot ignore the hard work and just how close :iconjadeharlei: came, so I have decided to donate 500 points to Jade as a consolation - I hope you are not too disappointed :(  

Thanks again to everyone who took part  - I look forward to dishing out some more points when the next big number rolls around!  

Until then ATB - Paul :hug: 



So the results are in, and to ensure that everyone is considered fairly I have to apply the only rule that was stipulated - that is to say the moment closest to the point when all three measure hit there target;  Watchers = 3300, Comments hit 15,000 and Pageviews hit = 100,000 - these were the screen grabs that were sent in.....

So by my calculation the winner is  
From :iconjadeharlei: with 3300 Watchers; 100,986 pageviews and 15,025 comments - congratulations :)

If anyone has a screen grab that is closer to the targets than these I will give you until 8pm Chinese Time to send me a link via a note - otherwise the points will go to Jade :)  

Thanks everyone for taking part - and thank you for watching :D:D



(As a note it was interesting to watch a few people 'un-watched' me and then try to use their 're-watch' activity tip it over the edge :lol: human audacity and ingenuity never cease to amaze me :) )












I need to get this journal out quick as the reason for the give-away is that I promised earlier to reward anyone who spots my page views reach the unbelievable number of 100,000, and it looks like it will happen sooner than I expected :)

The number of page views has rocketed recently thanks to two articles in online magazines which can be seen here twistedsifter.com/2014/07/hype… and here thechive.com/2014/07/10/draw-m…  which also spurred on some frantic Tweet action etc.

So if you want to grab yourself 1000 points here is what you have to do....

Check out my Stats by doing this...

 
and take a screen-grab , photo of your screen, video or whatever you can to record the moment when the following happens;
100,000 pageviews
15,000 comments
3300 watchers

Now they wont all happen at the same time, so you have to time this to perfection (just to be clear they must all have at least reached their target count - Pageviews = 100,000+ Comments 15,000+ Watchers 3300+ 

for example; the closest result to the perfect score may be '100,123 pageviews, 15003 comments and 3301 watchers' or even '120,001 pageviews, 15501 comments and 3305 watchers' 

The person with the closest to all 3 numbers will be declared the outright winner.  If you do not understand - please ask 
(The only other rule is that you must already be a watcher)

Also in other news.... a couple of my drawings need voting on in :iconthefavouriteshowcase: monthly competition - you can vote for my work here thefavouriteshowcase.deviantar… and here thefavouriteshowcase.deviantar…

oh and if anyone is a member of :iconrealismgroup: feel free to vote for me as the artist of the month here realismgroup.deviantart.com/jo…

Finnaly a new drawing this Saturday - I wonder if anyone can guess what it will be?

Started drawing again after 20 years - loads of fun, every drawing poses a different challenge, which when overcome is incredibly rewarding.

Your water drawings are simply amazing. The fact that you've got to be doing them with hardly any reference to look at just makes them that more impressive.

I wouldn't know how to take a shot of the screen (yes, I'm THAT rubbish :D (Big Grin) ), but I'll keep an eye out anyway... I just know you'll hit 3300 very soon!
