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 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.

Do you have any particular advice for newbies starting to draw. Ps. Great Work

Not really anything more interesting than the usual "practise a lot".

I know you will probably say no, but I would be honored if you could participate in my contest, and maybe help me get the word out about it?

Heres the details…

I'm not familiar with the subject so I don't think there would be much fun drawing it.
