Finally the results for the Pokemon design contest! And with two winners instead of one! Reasons below since there would be no use writing them here considering everyone would scroll to the winners first anyway.

So the winners (in alphabetical order):

Vs. Elsa of the Elite Four by Taizen-KaoruFire pokemon trainer, Jasmine! by Shoujo-chi

Congratulations to both! I'll send a note shortly.

(I didn't know you can now put :thumbs: in a journal even if you're not a premium member. Hoo.)

So why two winners? Well, I only have experience on drawing generic Pokemon trainer outfits (like what the player character wears), I've never drawn a champion or a gym leader outfit. So while judging I noticed that I was only thinking of whether the entry would look good on the vaguely 10-year-old protagonist. Which is obviously unfair since a champion design is obviously supposed to look different from the average nobody. But then I started having problems with how to compare the quality of a generic all-around Poketrainer design to all the other trainer classes, because I personally enjoy the generic designs the most which puts everything else at a disadvantage, but on the other hand it wouldn't be fair to the generic poketrainer designs to choose some other trainer class if I was purposely trying not to pick any of them. And since I didn't know what to do I just picked my favourite of both groups.

Not that it made the judging much easier since there were plenty of designs I would've wanted to reward, but drawing two prizes is already enough work. Thanks to everyone for participating!

I really like your flash games, and I have a few ideas of something you could try to do, like a One piece character creator! It's okay if you don't want to do it, it's just a suggestion.

This has been answered in the F.A.Q.

Oh, sorry.

I really enjoy your artwork and dress up games :) what I can't seem to understand is why people constantly demand you to make whatever fandom they enjoy, and then have the nerve to get angry when you say no. I also draw myself and find it very off putting/find no inspiration to draw something someone demands from me. Keep up the awesome work! x

A comment on one of your dress up games is preventing me from loading up the game...

Here's the comment:…

I hid that comment. Thanks for telling me, comments where the person is obviously just showing off their ability to cram a million animated icons to one post rather than giving feedback have always annoyed me, but if there has been at least something resembling an opinion of the work I haven't flagged them as spam. But if it's crashing other people's computers it's a valid reason to start hiding them.
