Ah, I didn't get the facial expressions in for one of mine. Can that character still be in the contest without them?

Ugh I manage to get this done @@. Ok so as promised voting begins NOW :D! Ok first things first when you vote please vote for only 1 character for each seeding. I already made my first vote so that will be an example for all of you on how to vote. Voting will end this Sunday. Good Luck :D

Info: I think since this is the first time I implemented the facial expression rule thing I guess its okay just for this time so no worries. Your entries can still be in the contest but if you want to do one now and send it to me thats ok also. Just remember next season facial expression is a must xD!

@ Rio: I just want to ask, is there anyway for me to change or modify the poll? Cuz right now I can't seem to change it also I can't seem to get into the official Saimoe thread. Has it been locked or did something happen to it?

Unfortunately, I am the only who can change the poll. It will have to be reset to 0 though for all the names. Let me know when you want to change it and with what names.

Agreed. Those two was the hardest to choose from. I could've really voted for either one of them.

I hope it doesn't reset or change though. Although my emotions are like a yoyo right now but this contest is giving me a unique opportunity to see how my work is doing when contesting against one another. It would help to define which style is better received by the general public. I might take the best of both styles and merge them into one (the colouring of the 1st pic with the details and finished look of the 2nd pic).

Nope. The voting is supposed to be decided via concept, not skill or even style. Sadly enough, skill and style play a huge part in who gets voted for.

Sadly enough, skill and style play a huge part in who gets voted for.Agreed. Hopefully, folks will become better judges as each new SaiMoe contest. C:

I had a hard time voting this time around. I liked some character's bios but didn't like the representation (i.e. she didn't look that cute) or vice versa. Result: I kind of flipped-flopped between voting from one to the other with each successive vote. xD

Actually style does play a huge role in this contest as well :>. that is what makes entries different in their own way.

Matt
07-02-2011, 09:57 AM
Yeah, that's true. But with my current style, about two years ago, I wouldn't have had a chance. How nice someone's style looks is (I think) directly proportional to their skill and experience.

Well, not all the time, I guess. Happy Flame Time (doujin artist) had a really good style, but his actual skill was pretty low on his first works.

MiKuRu
07-16-2011, 12:27 PM
