The comp is tough, everybody is pretty good looking.
I know it isn't my place to say, but I think people are just trying to be nice. I generally know what people think of my looks already. I entered only to get my face around since I've been here for a long time now, but no one knows how I look. Decided this was the best way without having to change my display. :P I mean, I could be wrong and you guys are being genuine, but I'm a very cynical person.
I actually like this competition because you get to see the what people look like. It brings a more human element to vgc.
I wouldn't worry about the way you look, everybody has issues with the way they look and most of the time you're just being hard on yourself. Like I said, this competition is tough because everybody looks great but remember is just for fun.
