Default June contest voting thread: entries

Due to the small number of entries, we will only be having a vote.

Since we have had complaints about polls in the past, and I agree that they are limited, I would like to try something new. Instead of a single vote, post a comment in this thread who you would rank 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in that order. 3 points will be awarded to first, 2 to second, and 1 to third. Voting ends at the end of this coming Friday EST, when points will be tallied. Here are the entries:

1- Darkstalker1

2- r@nd0m-lamb

3- astrapho

4- Izanaki_Reload

5- Billov

Sorry akuma_patata. You missed the deadline, so your entry is not included. Darkstalker1 and r@nd0m-lamb both made it by the original deadline, so they will each be given one free 1st place vote.

Please, votes only. Any other comments will be deleted. You can post them in the original June contest thread.

1st- astrapho
2nd- random-lamb
3rd- Izanaki_Reload

astrapho- Nailed the angle and the expression, very well done. No major problems, followed the theme throughout. Simple, solid piece of effective work.

random- The idea was there, just not executed as well as I would have liked to see. It wasn't polished and lacked interesting angles or perspective.

Izanaki- Wasn't a huge fan of the comic format. Regardless, all around decent work. Nothing popped out as being strong though.

----------

Billov- Technically the best of the batch. However, I think you dropped the ball on the theme. Take a mindane activity and make it over dramatic. While your dream was dramatic, the activity of having a dream isn't really mundane. Well, sometimes dreams can be silly or boring, but its not consistent. When you have a dream, it can be exciting, sad, scary, sexy, or mundane. When you brush your teeth, it's always gonna be the same thing. Looks pretty, but missed the theme.

Darkstalker- I really didn't get it to be honest. I didn't look at the entry thread to see what your idea was, but I really don't see it at all. Technically its alright, but nothing special.

1st - astrapho (that's exactly what I expected from this kind of contest)
2nd - izanaki_reload (solid and funny)
3rd - r@ndom-lamb (I love this image, but regarding the contest theme it could be way more dramatic)

1st - r@ndom-lamb
Really good, like this image a lot, follows the contest theme closely with a great and pretty well executed idea, an interesting style and good composition.

2nd - Astrapho
Great! Followed the theme perfectly and the pose, angle and expression are very good. Would have liked it to be a bit more polished though, at least the sink and the toothbrush.

3rd - Billov
Definitely the most beautiful of them all. The comic format is very well executed and the expression, brush strokes and color are all excellent. BUT it sadly doesn't follow the contest theme that closely... This dream doesn't really seem that mundane, but it is definitely over-dramatized.

Izanaki_reload
Overall pretty well executed and solid, think it could have been a bit more dramatic though.

Darkstalker1
An over dramatized stroll down a street? Could have been made much more clear, right now it doesn't feel like it follows the theme that closely. Doesn't feel that special technically either.

1st - astrapho. Just awesome here.

2nd - Izanaki_Reload. Happens to all of us.

3rd - Billov. Like others have said, great art, but not quite on the theme. (should have gone with regular tooth pulling?)

1st- astrapho
I think this entry fit the theme the best. It really over dramatizes something trivial and stupid, and the execution of the image is well done.

2nd- Izanaki_Reload
I think this one also fits the theme very nicely. Well drawn, and nice panel work. One gripe would be how his hands are both cut off in the last panel.

3rd- r@nd0m-lamb
It's a simple idea, but it works.

Darkstalker1
I don't really have an issue with the image, I just don't feel it was as on theme as the other entries.

Billov
I think the image itself is great on a technical level. In a contest about dreams or creepy imagery, I think it would have definitely ranked, I just don't see what it has to do with over dramatizing a situation.

1st Astrapho. Great facial expression, good composition and properly executed foreshortening. On the down side the colors are to light and it lacks sharpness.

2nd Random-Lamb. Visualy pleasing but bit to simple for it's own good.

3rd Billov. Good concept, well polished but the color palette and uninspring(way to many face close ups from the same 3/4th view) way the story is told kills it for me.
