Fan Art Contest - Results!

Alright everybody! Here are the results for the fan art contest! Posted a day early, too!

So before I get to the images, I'll say how I'll be doing this. I'll be giving my thoughts on the image, and then giving a rating of x/10. And keep in mind, this is all MY opinion.

Alright, let's do this!

So, in the order they were recieved, we have...

Melody-Pika's entry!

The first thing I want to say about this is that Melody-Pika got Sapphire's color wrong. And every other person who drew her did the same thing. But really, I can't complain too much about this, because it's partially my fault. My characters page isn't even up anymore, and when it was, it was sprites. The only actual art of these characters is in Mint612's fan art, in which her coloring is wrong. So, I guess sorry.
But other than that, this is a good drawing. I like how the background gets darker as you go down the image, I really like the custom blush designs. As far as negatives go, I really dislike the eye style. I get that it's Melody-Pika's style, but it really just doesn't work with Kirbies.
So overall, I give this drawing a 9/10.

Next we have an entry from...


Alright, this one is the only hand-drawn image in the contest, so kudos for that.
Sadly, I don't really have anything positive to say about this, and I don't just want to blast it with negativity, so I'll just say two things: Firstly, the drawing isn't very smooth, there's a lot of sketchy-looking outlines. And secondly, Redtro doesn't have any blush. Kirbies almost always have those.
I give it a 3/10.

Entry number three is from...


Well, this one is... strange. Based on contradiction123's description of it on DeviantArt, she doesn't even like it very much. In a general sense, the art itself is good, but it's just a... really weird drawing. The shading is nice, I like Kirby's eyes, although it's weird that Sapphire is the only other one with an eye color...
I give this a 7/10.

The next entry is...

from meta-eggplant!

According to meta-aggplant, this was made entirely in MSPaint. I like the premise behind the art (surfing with Seth), I like the shading style, I like the flame on Skylar's head (Though I'm not sure how he did that in MSPaint)... This is overall a pretty good drawing. Negatives would be the eye style, Kirby's left (our right) foot looks odd, Skylar's body is sorta oddly drawn...
So, overall, I give this drawing an 8/10.

Next-to last one...

from DaBrokor!

I... I just love this entry. the water in the background, the lighting effects, the shading, I just... It's beautiful. I actually have nothing negative to say about it, which grants it a 10/10!
In fact, when I recieved this entry, my first thought was "This is it. This is the winner."

But then...

PurpleChickenPineapple sent in this entry. Oh my gosh. The ONLY negative thing I can possibly say about this image is Sapphire's color is off, but as I said in Melody-Pika's entry, I'm not gonna complain about that. He even got Halzen's scarred eye correct. This gets another 10/10.

...Which leaves us with a bit of a problem. We have a tie. I didn't plan anything for a tie.
So here's what I'm going to do. PurpleChickenPineapple and DaBrokor are both winners, and I'm going to use both of their entries on the site in different ways.
Because it works better and has (mostly) all the current characters in it, I'll use PurpleChickenPineapple's entry as the new banner, and because it's a square image, I'll use DaBrokor's entry as my new avatar. Both of these will be there for at least a month, possibly more.

And because they were both first place, I'm going to give the art request to the runner-up, which is Melody-Pika! So Melody, you should PM me and let me know what you'd like me to draw for you.

Now, to those who didn't win anything, don't get discouraged about it! Keep drawing, keep improving, and if I ever do this again, who knows? You could win!
(And if anyone would like some proper C+C from me on your entries, send me a PM, I'll be happy to give it.)

Alright. Ciao everyone. Also, let me know what you thought of this contest!

Who'd have thought that the fans of this comic were such good artists?

1ST! I really like Melody-Pika's entry. It was so cool.

littlekirby61524, March 3rd, 2014, 2:32 pm

yeah... I realized I forgot the blush, but I've gotten better at Kirby-drawing so next time there's one I'm sure that I'll do better.

meta-eggplant, March 3rd, 2014, 4:01 pm

Wow, PCP's drawing is amazing! I don't know how he does it. And yeah, Kirby's foot looked a little off and Skylar's positioning didn't exactly look right to me. Also, btw I'm a girl...

Luigi_96, March 3rd, 2014, 4:12 pm

@meta-eggplant: ...Whoops. I've even seen that on your profile before. Sorry.

DaBrokor, March 4th, 2014, 2:09 pm

I was going to ask for C+C but you said you had nothing negative to say about my entry. I'd still like it if you can :)
And PCP, you sneaky devil...congrats~
Also, is it OK that his eyes are blue? Just wondering.

Luigi_96, March 4th, 2014, 2:19 pm

@DaBrokor: Alright, I'll PM you C+C then if that's what you meant.

And yes. you're actually one of the only people who got the eye colors correct. xD

Melody-Pika, March 4th, 2014, 4:32 pm

Good job, guys. Heh, I didn't deserve runner up at all, here, really, with everyone else's fantastic entries. (Guess I need to edit my style if I wanna place higher in contests...)

Luigi_96, March 4th, 2014, 6:42 pm

@Melody-Pika: I wouldn't just overthrow your style completely, just with Kirbies. Cuz I mean, I use that eye style (sorta) with pokemon. So... yeah.
Be sure to PM me with your request!

DaBrokor, March 5th, 2014, 2:02 pm

So, when do the first place prizes go into affect?

Luigi_96, March 5th, 2014, 3:12 pm

@DaBrokor: Tomorrow.

Luigi_96, March 6th, 2014, 10:52 am

Everything is in place now! :D

PurpleChickenPineapple, April 8th, 2014, 1:34 pm

Huh, I don't know how I got Sapphire's color off. I used the comic for reference. Go figure. ^^'
