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've always wondered this so, why exactly is the reason you don't do requests/suggestions/etc.?
Hapuriainen Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Umm because stuff takes a lot of time to draw, and I have no interest in spending large amounts of my free time drawing a subject I don't care for people I don't know for free.

Okay. I probably wouldn't take requests if I were in your shoes either, not that I could live up to your work

The only suggestion I'm going to make to you is this: do what you love and love what you do.

If you want to make dress-up dolls, do so.

If you want to go for a walk in the rain and find clarity as the rain patters (this works with me during the rainy season of Seattle, where I live), go take a walk to clear your head.

If you want to make Pokemon Trainers out of cartoon characters from favorite animated films, be my guest! (Just realized the Beauty and the Beast pun)

My point is as such: When you're hyper-creative and want to draw your favorite things, it can get irritating when you get requests for something far away in your mind, something you'd rather not draw because you can't perform on the spot. There's not wrong about the inability to perform under duress.

I've had my moments when I was in school. It was not easy to deal with. In fact, my stamina for in-school schoolwork would lead to a 2-hour nap every afternoon after school.

In conclusion: Do your own thing and you won't have stress involved.

In fact, I'm working with that idea.

Remember to take it easy when you can.

Is it ok if my friend uploads her creations with the dress up games to her tumblr if she links back to the game she created it with?
