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):
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!
