And the Winners of the Gijinka Contest are...Category: (general)
Friday, 10 July 2009
09:10:07 PM (GMT)
Well! It's been around almost a week since the closing of the Gijinka contest and
some are eager to know the results!

To be completely honest, I never got around judging until last night, and it was
tough. I have said that I do not judge by the level of skill the person has but by
the three areas of: 

1. Similarity of the gijinka with original 
2. Originality of the outfits
3. Effort 

It's been tough indeed and sadly I had to resort to the number ratings if I were to
ever get a definite winner. And so, because I knew that some contestants may argue
with me about why they are in so-and-so place, I have decided to give my explanations
as to why.

Keroro Gijinka by lollyx3: 

1. similarity of gijinka with original

There is a great similarity between the original Keroro and the gijinka. The colors
of the original were kept. The cap and the stars make it very distinguishable. It has
huge eyes I agree, it doesn't seem to give off that same impression as the original.


8/10. 

2. originality of the outfits

The outfit I'd say is very original, save for the same cap and the markings of the
star. However, I've seen the usage of having hoods to distinguish what type of
character it is. Not the most original that I've seen, but one of the better ones.
^^

5/10. 

3. effort

Clean lines show that it has taken at least three tries (the rough sketch, the pen
sketch, the lineart) to get to the final product. The usage of many shades of colors
add to the fact that it as been planned out very well as well there is a color
variation. Because the hair has a lot of spikes as well spilled colors over the edge,
it is an annoying job to erase it all. But patience has been showed there. 

9/10.

Gardevoir Gijinka by ‹IisWurmple;;HearMeRAWR♥›: 

1. similarity of gijinka with original
Very similar, the green, and the white dress. 

10/10. 

2. originality of the outfits

I'd say it's quite lacking. It captures the essence that the gardevoir somewhat wears
a dress, but since it is like a rather 'fancy' nature, it could have been better. 

5/10.

3. effort
2 hours and 48 minutes sounds like a lot of time. Especially if there is almost clean
lineart. The coloring and shading looks a bit rushed... 

6/10.

Roserade by ‹B r o f i s t ♥ Karrot!›:

1. similarity of gijinka with original

I'd say that it is very similar. But it's an anthro so not all points will be given.
Very similar in hair and such, but lacking in the original's mischievous look. 

5/10.

2. originality of the outfits

Sad to say, it is exactly the same thing that the original wears. I can't say that
it's original. 

1/10. 

3. effort

There has been a lot of effort put. The clean lines and the very clean shading. As
well it wasd rawn on a small canvas, therefore is much harder to draw in details. The
effort is clearly shown here. :D well done. 

10/10.

Pachirisu by Cyan:

1. similarity of gijinka with original

It's very similar; the ears, tail, cheek, and color combinations suggest that it is
said pokemon. 

10/10.

2. originality of the outfits

Unfortunately, the gijinka looks more like a cosplayer than a humanoid pokemon. The
clothes are wonderful but it can be better. 

3/10. 

3. effort

Dark clean lines and the colors stay in the lines. there were at least three attempts
of drawing a clean lineart so I would say there has been an effort. 

6/10.

Okami by Akami:

1. similarity of gijinka with original

I can see the resemblance in the gijinka with its orginal. The markings on the head
as well around the eyes and the marks on the shoulder (as well wings) does have
striking resemblance there. However, the ears are pointed downwards having you wonder
if it is a cat or if it is a wolf. 

7/10.

2. originality of the outfits

There is nothing to judge because the accessories (ex. wings, markings, flames on the
back) belong to the original and hasn't been changed into a way that it seems like an
accessory of clothing. The top is rather bland, but is does say much about the
character being a some sort of Japanese deity or someone belonging to such
profession.

4/10.

3. effort

Efforts to make a clean oekaki from the beginning of the drawing show that much
effort was put to planning where the very pixels are put. As well the coloring is
nicely done. However, it is a somewhat normal pose so it is easy to maneuver the
drawing such as that. 

7/10.

Mudkip by ‹Maria   ;♥›  :

1. similarity of gijinka with original

Very similar due to the usage of the same colors. Nothing else but the color makes me
recognize it. 

4/10. 

2. originality of the outfits

Interesting in the way it is drawn. However it is rather plain and while Mudkips are
plain, I have expected more imagination with the fins. 

4/10. 

3. effort

It has an almost clean sketch and very neatly done coloring. However several left
factors have led it to look a bit rushed. 

5/10.

Misdreavous by: ‹OjamajoPower♥›

1. similarity of gijinka with original

I couldn't recognize what it was unless I looked at the title. There is no
accessories such as the beads that it wears nor is the hair resemblance of it. 

1/10. 

2. originality of the outfits

The outfit does portray what it is, a dark type of gijinka. The hat and the hair is
original and very nicely thought of. 

8/10.

3. effort

It's a typical three color scratch drawing (that I'm used to. ^^; ). While it does
look like a lot of effort has been put in it, the lack of coloring throws it off
slightly. It has it's own nice touch with it though.

6/10.

Flygon by menchi:

1. similarity of gijinka with original

Very. The goggles, hat, and color theme matches. But it made me first think that he
was some sort of elf to be honest.  

5/10. 

2. originality of the outfits

Not very original... I expected something much more imaginative other than a hat. The
red goggles seem all too expected. Could have done better with it. 

4/10. 

3. effort

Because it was done on a mouse a lot of patience was used to draw it. However, there
is hardly any shading but a clean coloring. The background was done with textures. I
applaud your effort for drawing it with a mouse, but more effort would be needed to
get a better score. ^^; 

2/10.

Glaceon by ‹○♥◘SHINI-Effin'-GAMI.◘♥○› :

1. similarity of gijinka with original

Only the ears and the tail helped me know that it is the gijinka of it. He is lacking
in the mischievous look that the original has. As well the hair doesn't really help.


2/10.

2. originality of the outfits

It is original but doesn't fit with the color scheme that the original has. I have
expected that there be two long strips for bangs to match the original. The outfit is
very original, but it steers away from the pokemon's design. 

5/10. 

3. effort

I see some effort in it. There are many details but the shading is a few. There is
also a nicely done background so that adds to the workload of effort put in. 

7/10.

Kyun_yo says:   10 July 2009   292196  
Thank you...xD I was thinking that people would riot and throw rotten
tomatoes at me. D: 

I'm sorry about yours. I wish I have clarified about it much sooner.
It had a lot of effort in it. =D 

...Ahaha. xD Future contests? Hm, not really sure about that. I guess
I'll have to think about it. =o

Unless you are a PokeNerd. xD
 
Kyun_yo says:   10 July 2009   292244

HOLY SHIT. OMFG, OH LORD. ARE YOU SERIOUS? I won.... ._.

Dude, you are one harsh person. I'm never gonna post art anymore.....


Dang, the eyes are too big. I can't draw small eyes; I draw way too
shoujo. D:

Hoods define the character.... Hm, interesting that you'd say that. I
just wanted a frog hoodie to match Keroro XD 

But anyways, thank you for eh, putting me in first place. Lol, really,
thank you a lot! :D (Honestly, I never win.)
 
Kyun_yo says:   11 July 2009   495685  
...don't thank me. I would've landed you last if I was being unfair.
:P 

And yes, I'm harsh on friends. xD It's a policy of mine, be nice to
strangers, harsh to friends. =D -is secretly very evil-

^^ -never going to host another contest ever-
 
lollylovex3 says:   12 July 2009   392181  
Looool, that's real nice of ya. But I'm like that tooo. OTL

Meh, I'm bored. I think I'll host one meself. -.-;
 
Kyun_yo says:   12 July 2009   134266  
...YESSS. Host one please? xD I want to join a contest and
fail since I'm weird that way. :D
 
‹Maria   ;♥› says:   12 July 2009   148225  
Lmfao, I failed. :D
I wasn't expecting to win anyways. :]
But thank you for the critique. I think, I have improved since then.
:D
 
Kyun_yo says:   12 July 2009   295795  
D: -pats- It's okay. xD The joys of competing are that you learn
something each time. =) I hope you did get some experience from this.


Failures and wins are what you need to improve. xD
 
karolinacake says:   12 July 2009   587323  
Dude, I just noticed I got a 10 out of 10 on effort.
FUCK YEAR >:D
haha and you should do more contests, maybe.
Actually I kind of want to make one myself :O
 
Kyun_yo says:   12 July 2009   935851  
YESS, MAKE ONNEEE. And I'll join it. XD (You can fail me, it's
okay.)

Lol, I'd give you a hundred out of ten to be honest. I wouldn't have
enough patience to do as much as you did. xD
 
Cyan says:   13 July 2009   958797  
If you were grading, I would have gotten a 63%.
:D

Hmmm...your gradings are low, but you say what you want in a polite
way. C:
I get where you are going at, though. Yes, she does look like a
cosplay person. :D *sigh* I need to work harder next time. 

My mouse has been acting all strange recently. D: I havn't been able
to draw reasonably neat...(I DON'T HAVE A TABLET! D
Kyun_yo says:   13 July 2009   545623  
^^ Well, those were my honest opinion and I had to find a way to see
who was in third, second, and first place. 

Low? As in how? I try to be as fair as I could, not giving anyone a
10/10 unless I felt very strongly that the oekaki had earned it. 

Mm. It's alright. You've did your best and you're in third place. ^^

Ah, I see. If I had known  it was drawn with a mouse, my opinions
would have differed. I automatically assume that most that can draw
fairly decently are tablet-users unless they say so otherwise. 

But look on the bright side, you've made it to third.

Would you care to send a picture of your animal character so I could
turn it into a gijinka? =)
 
‹♪♫LuLuu♪♫› says:   15 July 2009   968472  
wow Your critics are great WeirdIKnow

aww...I should've joined the contest *sobs and runsaway*
 
lunasan says:   18 July 2009   997197  
GAH, most people use tablets? no wonder i suck... *facepalm*
i loved everything about watching this contest; the judgments and
critism, the art itself, and the effort and time given pretty much for
the fun of it!
 
Kyun_yo says:   18 July 2009   543431  
@ lunasan

I only assumed that most do have tablets...xD I think mouse users are
rare, or I'm just an idiot. xP

And thank you. XD I don't think I'd host another contest but
hopefully...one day...XD 
 
101CokaCola101 says:   18 July 2009   254291

Kyun_yo says :   18 July 2009   712878
