Poster Code: OM3 | Artist: RainingStreet

Image

Popular Votes: 6 | Judge Score: 6.3/10 | Global Score: 35.79 | Rank: #25

This poster didn't grabbed enough attention from popular poll, while it had a solid, yet not outstanding performance on judge side. Just enough to be celebrated today.

Judge comment:
It's a good attempt at bishie sparkle but might be out of place in a poster. - Black Cat

Poster Code: H2 | Artist: Grish

Image

Popular Votes: 8 | Judge Score: 5.5/10 | Global Score: 36.12 | Rank: #24

This poster had a relatively good reception by the crowd and a very mixed one with judges, with up and down marks.

Judge comment:
I like the feeling that the character seems to be interacting with viewers, which is attractive. Color and background are also perfect. - Little Rabbit

Poster Code: SG4 | Artist: ShiinaNamida

Image

Popular Votes: 7 | Judge Score: 6.58/10 | Global Score: 38.67 | Rank: #23

This poster had decent results everywhere on the board, some critics pointed out that its background would be it's weak point and the reason why it didn't ended up higher in this ranking.

Judge comment:
Sora Ginko is a cute girl who is also "handsome", especially when she is on her shōgi match, that is the reason I prefer this poster. - Little Rabbit

Poster Code: H1 | Artist: RitsukinTV

Image

Popular Votes: 11 | Judge Score: 4.94/10 | Global Score: 39.17 | Rank: #22

A hit with the crowd, especially on Tieba, but a disappointing results with the judges didn't let this poster much hopes to win it all.

Judge comment:
I wish you would have made a cut out of the character and played around with different backgrounds. - White Fox

Poster Code: OM5 | Artist: Ignite

Image

Popular Votes: 11 | Judge Score: 4.96/10 | Global Score: 39.25 | Rank: #21

This poster had a pretty good appreciation on popular poll abut failed to capture judge's hearts.

Judge comment:
So it actually took me a while to process this poster in my head. There is a lot more going on than what you first see. I love the choice of the image and the background, but I think you should have cut down on the effect layers. They add a lot of brightness to an already bright image and it makes some parts of the poster look a bit weird. - White Fox

Poster Code: Y5 | Artist: Hayasaka

Image

Popular Votes: 9 | Judge Score: 5.9/10 | Global Score: 39.48 | Rank: #20

This poster struggled a bit with the judges and had some support from the crowd, but not enough to make it up for it.

Judge comment:
This poster is not bad at all, but it's just very plain in my opinion. I can barely spot that there is actually a flowerfield in the background. That is lost potential for making it a more interesting poster. Sadly all I see is a Yoshino cutout placed on a gradient background which makes the poster seem a bit to simple. - White Fox

Poster Code: Y1 | Artist: Ignite

Image

Popular Votes: 7 | Judge Score: 7.14/10 | Global Score: 40.91 | Rank: #18

Reaching the symbolic Global Score of 40, thanks to one of the best performance from judge side, we're reaching a step further into the competition !
It seems a lot of judges had pointed out same problem however:

Judge comment:
I like the squares effect tho i would have prefered it to be rounding Yoshino instead to be on her. - Small Shounen

Poster Code: MS5 | Artist: Hayasaka

Image

Popular Votes: 6 | Judge Score: 7.74/10 | Global Score: 41.55 | Rank: #17

Second best poster on judge side (overall !), this posters lacked the popular support to get a shot to victory. Having best mark from two different judges, it can still be called a success.

Judge comment:
Good choice of picture. Editing is clean and effects aren't too busy that it takes away from the poster's aesthetic. - Mad Crow

Poster Code: SG5 | Artist: Hayasaka

Image

Popular Votes: 10 | Judge Score: 6.06/10 | Global Score: 41.89 | Rank: #16

This poster got some crowd love but got a mixed reception with the judges.

Judge comment:
The character covers most of this poster. So the decission to blur the background seems a bit odd to me. I would personally have liked if I could see what was going on there. All in all I think this poster could have a used a little more love for details. - White Fox

Poster Code: Y2 | Artist: RainingStreet

Image

Popular Votes: 9 | Judge Score: 6.56/10 | Global Score: 42.12 | Rank: #15

Good performances overall for this poster.

Judge comment:
The cutout job of the character for this poster is just brilliant. I can only imagine how much work that takes. It fits really well with the background and the bright color tones just makes this poster stand out from all the others which is a good thing. - White Fox

Poster Code: AT1 | Artist: RitsukinTV

Image

Popular Votes: 11 | Judge Score: 5.8/10 | Global Score: 42.61 | Rank: #14

Another poster that got the crowd support but failed to get judges on his side, with mixed receptions.

Judge comment:
Background is too unimaginative. - Black Cat

Poster Code: AZ4 | Artist: Hayasaka

Image

Popular Votes: 11 | Judge Score: 5.84/10 | Global Score: 42.77 | Rank: #13

This poster got some crowd love too but judges gave it a too mediocre rating (this time they agreed).

Judge comment:
I kinda get what is trying to be achieved in this image, but it's just not working for me. The background has to much detail which makes the poster seem a bit chaotic in my opinion. It fights to much with the simple purple color from the parasol which creates 2 background zones in the image which has a bad effect on me. - White Fox

Poster Code: MS1 | Artist: Ignite

Image

Popular Votes: 11 | Judge Score: 6/10 | Global Score: 43.41 | Rank: #12

Very good performance on crowd side, this poster had not enough power to convince all judges sadly. It managed to have some effect on host at least.

Judge comment:
I love the details of the butterflies it's kinda genius. However I'm not sure if its intended or not, but in the lighting effect it looks like there is a cutout of several bubbles and flowers which doesn't really work at all for me. Sometimes when you add such a huge details as the butterflies nothing else needs to be added. - White Fox

Poster Code: MS3 | Artist: RitsukinTV

Image

Popular Votes: 11 | Judge Score: 6.36/10 | Global Score: 44.85 | Rank: #11

Another Sakura poster doing pretty well, in was the most competitive poster group with really a lot of successful one, but only one can win.

Judge comment:
It has a poster-worthy pose but it needs more color balance. - Black Cat

Poster Code: SG2 | Artist: RitsukinTV

Image

Popular Votes: 12 | Judge Score: 6.3/10 | Global Score: 46.38 | Rank: #8

Now into the top 10, we have posters that really achieved a lot !

Judge comment:
I really love what has been done to this poster with the lighting. Is definitely one of my favourites this year. I have nothing more to add except it looks really amazing. - White Fox

Poster Code: BC2 | Artist: WoodyMC

Popular Votes: 10 | Judge Score: 7.5/10 | Global Score: 47.65 | Rank: #7

A brillant performance, that just sadly run into a stronger competitor.

Judge comment:
Really love how sharp and crystal clear this poster looks. Usually I don't like white glow around the character, but it works great in this case. Also the particle effect has jus tthe right amount of particles to not steal all the attention away from the character. Great Poster! - White Fox

Poster Code: AZ2 | Artist: Grish

Image

Popular Votes: 13 | Judge Score: 7.54/10 | Global Score: 53.1 | Rank: #3

There too, the performance is pretty good, and it was just unlucky to have a stronger competitor in the same poster group.

Judge comment:
I really love the details on this poster. The extra added flower petals on top of the character layer is a very nice touch which connects the character perfectly with the background. - White Fox

And that's all for our non-winning posters that deserved a shoutout. Better luck next year !

Congratulations to our 8 winners. Let's wish em the best for Divine Circlet/Crown semifinals !
Poster Code: H4 | Artist: WoodyMC

Image

Popular Votes: 7 | Judge Score: 6.84/10 | Global Score: 39.71 | Rank: #19

Not an outstanding performance with the crowd, but a very solid one with judges. The fierce battle of this poster group didn't reach the heights of other ones, but it was a close fight.

Judge Comment:
This is a genius idea to have the character look like he's sitting under a tree. I really love that kind of original thought when I see a poster. I think the particles is a bit to much for this poster, but it doesn't break the image. This is a very good poster all in all. - White Fox

Poster Code: AT2 | Artist: WoodyMC

Image

Popular Votes: 11 | Judge Score: 6.52/10 | Global Score: 45.49 | Rank: #10

A serious performance on both popular poll and judge side led this poster to the win.

Judge Comment:
The moon is nice but too many petals. - Black Cat

Poster Code: Y3 | Artist: Grish

Image

Popular Votes: 13 | Judge Score: 5.78/10 | Global Score: 46.06 | Rank: #9

A solid performance on popular poll (top 5) get this poster the win even with a not so good performance on judge side.

Judge Comment:
I like the simplicity in this poster. It's just one of those rare moment where the character works super well with a simple, but yet beautiful background. - White Fox

Poster Code: MS4 | Artist: Grish

Image

Popular Votes: 10 | Judge Score: 7.7/10 | Global Score: 48.45 | Rank: #6

Sakura poster group was the one with closest fight. This poster got victorious, being able having consistent results with both the crowd and judges.

Judge Comment:
Whenever its intended or not I really love the lighting in the scene of this poster. The background fits really well with the character as if the flowers she is holding has been picked from the flowers in the background. - White Fox

Poster Code: BC3 | Artist: Grish

Image

Popular Votes: 11 | Judge Score: 7.84/10 | Global Score: 50.77 | Rank: #5

This poster received best score by judges in whole competition and also biggest amount of votes in its poster group, yet it was still a short win, given the competition was hard for BC.

Judge Comment:
Sharp and clear image of Bell and a nice background to go with it. The pink hues are very pretty. It's a tad too saturated but is otherwise a very well edited poster. - Mad Crow

Poster Code: OM1 | Artist: Hayasaka

Image

Popular Votes: 15 | Judge Score: 6.58/10 | Global Score: 52.79 | Rank: #4

With third highest popular votes overall and highest notation from judges in his poster group, this poster takes the win by a mile.

Judge Comment:
Background might be too plain. - Black Cat

Poster Code: AZ1 | Artist: RitsukinTV

Image

Popular Votes: 19 | Judge Score: 6.26/10 | Global Score: 58.57 | Rank: #2

Tied with most popular votes, this poster didn't let his shot pass and took the win for Alice posters group, resisting to some strong competitors.

Judge Comment:
So I voted this poster as the 2nd best Alice Zuberg Poster. My reason for that is due to cutout around the hair. Some places its just a bit to rough which could have been fixed with a bit more patience and retracing with the brush tool. All in all I think this i a great poster, but with a little more love for the details I think this could become an amazing poster instead of just a great poster. - White Fox

Poster Code: SG1 | Artist: Toshiko

Image

Popular Votes: 19 | Judge Score: 7.4/10 | Global Score: 63.13 | Rank: #1

Stealing the heart of most voters and even some of the judges ones, this poster is the overall winner of this year competition ! Congratulations to Toshiko !

Judge Comment:
So this poster is absolutely astonishing. I'm lost for words which you should only take a positive thing. If you know that feeling of browsing through 100 pages on a image website to look for the perfect image for your background this would be the image I would stop at and save. - White Fox


Thanks again to everyone that participated !
