Valentine contest ENDED; Read inside for WINNER!

Post by FirstBorn » Thu Jan 15, 2009 9:33 am

Happy Valentine's Day
First of all Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I'd like to thank all 17 contestants for participating in our contest. Unfortunately there can only be one winner. :-( Def C and I rated all the pictures and we would like to announce the Top 3. Also, we would like to say that in the next few day we will give constructive comments on all participating art.

TOP 3
Third place: Fushicho!
Image Click here for a large version.
The use of traditional media, controversial Valentine themed picture, the perspective, the details and composition of the picture made it win third place. There is some room for improvement perspective-wise and proportion-wise, but the picture is very well executed.

Second place: Koriko!
Image Click here for a large version.
The use of traditional media and the manga-ish facial features with a lot of detail and effort put in to it, almost made this picture win first price. Proportion-wise there is some room for improvement. The layout composition works, placing the couple as center-piece.

First place; THE WINNER: Major Banana!
Image Click here for a large version.
The composition of this art rocks! Idea and colours clearly hit the theme very well. Yes, it isn't mainstream manga, but a lot of successful artists break free from that. It is clear that a lot of time, effort and thought went into the art.

Thanks!
Thanks to everyone for your art and effort.

Yes, there is. Only one piece of art per person. Thanks for pointing that out. I will change the main post.

Another notice. I've deleted all the other "random" posts. Please do not turn this into a "General BS" thread. Please only use this to ask questions about the event.

Actually, they can. Only the judges can not. So Def C and myself are excluded from the contest. But don't expect special treatment because you are a moderator. If anything, we will judges moderators extra hard, because they are moderators.

In addition to being original art that you yourself have drawn and have not copied or traced, are you allowed to do fanart? Or does it have to be original characters, also?
