T6, Y1, H4, K3
SpoilerShow
Rin: It was between T3 & T6. But then I noticed just how odd T3 is: why the hell would you smile when your back is like a forest in fire aka you're in the middle of battlefield? This ain't a meme.
Since T3 is odd, T6 is the only choice left.

Yoshino: Personally, I love Y3. Shading, effects, etc, are a notch above the others. Plus Yoshino's so goddamn cute, there.
But it's a halloween. Means the red effect can't be from firecrackers or campfire.
Means the most plausible explanation would be firefly. But I don't think there would be that many firefly in autumn (since they often follow after a rain season, aren't they? Or am I wrong? My biology sucks.)
Y2 is odd because there's snow effect yet it is clearly late summer (dry wet background, Yoshino's thigh being shown. Why would she show her thigh in winter? Even if she's Snow Goddess, it's still very cold lol.)
That leaves Y1 & Y4. Opted for Y1.
Y4 is so goddamn cute and has more effect and has more clear shading. But Yoshino is smiling in Y1. And I think that's what any Yoshino fans wants to see: their favorite loli smiling cheerfully.

Homura: I like both H3 & H4. Capture Homura's stoic.
Opted for H4 because Homura opens her eyes wide there, which gives the feeling of bravery.
H3 closes her eyes, which gives the sense of tranquility (which is not bad.) But personally, I think Homura is about how brave she is, making time jumps again and again, despite knowing that the only thing awaits her there is the sight of her most beloved one dying... and terror from the witches.

Kanie: K3 captures the old Kanie: an entertainer.
K2 is a bit too crude.
K1's background... where the hell is that? Ruby's Treasure Hunt attraction? It's nice, but I just like K3 more.

I don't care about Monogatari.

I don't see that rule anywhere and I think that slice you into small pieces will make justice for Yoshino.

Why would you make justice for Yoshino by slicing a Yoshino fanboy? ;_;

T3, Y3, H4, K1, D1
commentary, that no one cares aboutShow
T1 - Really good. For me second best just after T3. But her name could be written in smaller font.
T2 - Why her name is written in middle of picture? And still easy to miss...
T3 - Classic sunset background, but that tree looks little odd and I honestly doubt that it comes from the same picture as the rest of the background. The words were put in pretty way. In my opinion this picture beats every other in this. If not that tree it would be perfect.
T4 - Not a fan of picture, that is used for it.
T5 - Too much effects.
T6 - Classic problem with blue and red colors. Quite nice done, but still noticeable.
Y1 - This was hard decission. Let's just say I prefer third picture over this one.
Y2 - Great font, nice effects, but they completely don't suit the picture.
Y3 - Great picture with great background. And I like idea of a theme.
Y4 - Good, but too flashy.
H1 - Honestly... What the hell is that background?
H2 - Great idea of having a theme around winter. But where is her name? Ah, yeah... In the middle of picture.
H3 - I prefer to see girl eyes when I look on the poster.
H4 - Just great done. And it's not like she doesn't really have a competition or anything.
K1 - Could have a better background, but I still think it's best out of these three.
K2 - That font... Don't think, that creator really thought about it.
K3 - Too... normal. Even compared to other pictures that used typical form like for example Y3 or T6.
D1 - I kinda feel, that the main "attraction" in this one is the font that is used to write Kaiki name and not Kaiki himself. But, at least it doesn't have any bigger problems like rest.
D2 - Blue font and pink logo? :arrowed: Picture and background could be also better.
D3 - The problems that creator had with rendering original Kaiki picture are too noticable when you open this poster in new window. Cutting part of his shirt, some strange green points.
In small version you can see at forum it looks great, but it really isn't when it's bigger.

Comment from me who not-so-good-in-art...Show
Homura's posters are really gorgeous. When the first Homura's poster is uploaded, I thought that we already have the winner. Then Purple and Avery come up with their poster, I'm speechless. Their work is great. If I could use all my vote quota on a same category, I will absolutely use them on Homuras. Kudos to them.

For males poster, I was disappointed when we received only one poster few days before the deadline. I was hoping to see more good poster for Kanie. Good thing after the extended time, we have more poster comes in. Still can't beat the female counterpart though (in number)...

Okay, as for the poster itself...

Category - Rin :

All look really nice and I especially like T1, T2 & T3. I really like T2 for the font used and the arrangement of the words, plus the stripe effect. Too bad I found the flowers too messy. I can't even differentiate between the flower of the background and kimono in first glance. That why i go for the simple one, T3, even though I like T2 better. T3 looks better for a poster. As for T5, it will look better if the effect is not overused.

Category - Yoshino :

Y2 & Y3 seems familiar. Do we have this posters before?

All the picture used are beautiful, but as a whole I really like Y3 and Y4 among them. Y4 win by the unique arrangement and font used, oh, and the stripe effect again, plus the best Yoshino's picture among them. The effect looks nice and did not overused.

Category - Homura :

Nothing more to add. I was thorn between H2, H3 & H4. I choose H4 because the poster look unique, simple, without too much effect messing up the poster and look somehow modern and futuristic.

Category - Kanie :
Why there only three Kanie's posters? T_T Well, I do understand we have lack of good resolution pictures available in the internet. After all, I also search for good Kanie's picture for the poster before and failed to secure one...
Choose K1 one because it is look simple and nice. Plus, the best looking picture among the three...

Category - Kaiki :
I like D1 and D3. I choose D1 because it much more unique arrangement, as contrast to D3 which only use the original template.
Please excuse my lousy English...

T6, Y4, H4, K3
I'm sorry for my harsh (?) commentsShow
Rin group:
T2: I almost thought it's Yukino. Not choosing if it confuses me at first glance.
T4: I would prefer a better choice of font. It's too spooky when Rin is cool in that poster.
T5: Effects blur the words "ISML 2015 Awards", which is not great.
With T1 and T3 being repetitive in nature, my choice is T6.

Yoshino group:
Y1: Whilst I do appreciate that Yoshino is smiling in that poster, font again makes me shiver.
Y2, Y3: Wrong time in season. Sorry but I'm not convinced.
Going for Y4.

Homura group:
H1: Bad positioning of the Exhibition Glyph. Better put it next to the text. Not a bad attempt, but would have preferred a more modern approach instead of gothic (which is hard to read)
H2: The issues of Y5 and T2 combined.
H3: Hard to eye out Homura at first glance.
My choice is H4 for what I believe is the most creative poster out of the 20 submitted.

Seiya group:
K2: I dunno, but it looks awkward. Maybe a better background?
K3: The transparent bar at the top is blurring the text. Should have amplified the text color a bit.
I'm going for K3 since K1 looks spooky.

Kaiki group: Abstained.

I should note that I greatly appreciate the efforts put in by all the poster makers, and they have shown their creativity. I really hope they do not be deterred by my comments

This time I vote based on one simple question: What would I feel as voter if the girl in question won the award and the poster (never shown in front of the public) first appeared as the official poster for the winner?

That's why I cared more on font clashes, general atmosphere, season problems and character recognizability ahead of creativity: It is the first impression that matters, and screwing anyone of them will put you in flames if you really were making an official ISML poster. I know, this isn't for an official poster, but there's Divine Circlet poster contest coming up, and the field of criticism would be much larger. Creativity will be largely put aside in this field.
