Re: Sep 07 Contest Votes

Here are my votes:

1. MatthewMarshall - Best overall. Good job Matt!

2. CathyH - Certainly the prettiest. Would've been #1 but was more summer goddess than ice princess.

3. LonK - Very good. Best princess look. Excellent job with jewelry.

4. Splata - Nice ice, baby!

5. Grafx - Another good ice version.

Honorable mention to:

OnFocus - Nice overall, but a bit brutish looking for a princess.

Emilylt87 - You have a great style. I love what you did with the eyes!

Nimfabebe - Very interesting treatment.

Now I don't have to worry about being turned into a frog while I'm on vacation!

Good luck everyone!

Re: Sep 07 Contest Votes

I tried to keep in mind that the outcome was to be something which a makeup artist could duplicate.
3-Northern Shadow

Re: Sep 07 Contest Votes

Hi! Here are my votes ! But before I want to explain the way I chose these artworks.
The contest was NOT about ONLY make-up, but also effects. It is for a movie so it must impress the viewer. I've taken into consideration the way each of the works could impress me, and also stay in my mind . Originality was an important point, as important as the skills and the photographic look.
I didn't like the images with taned skin, or with elements that simply didn't fit. I also found a negative point in the ones that didn't correct the lips ( and u can't show investors an image like that )
1.LonK because the girl looks beautiful. I would want to see a movie with it. Is not that photograhic, but is my favourite. All the elements are well thought and his skills are amazing. It's an artwork worth showing to the investors.
2.wojtek . The girl is simple, but sometimes less is more. I would like to see some more elements. It's photographic and classical.
3. roundrock I would like that crown to be more realistic, but overall it looks ok.
4.NancyJ I love the eyes ( just a little more work to remove the red ).
5.Racc Iria The best cristalised hair.

Thank u and good luck all !

Thumbs up Re: Sep 07 Contest Votes

such wonderful entries. The rules clearly stated "*Final image must still look like a photograph" so I first crossed those that didn't follow the criteria off my list and came up with:

1. Mikkimicole
2. Mathew Marshal
3. Racc Iria
4. Back Waters
5. Cupcake

Honorable mentions to:
Platterpro and graphix....both wonderful entries - but I just ran out of votes!
And also to Lonk and Cathy H ....BEAUTIFUL and artistic- but look more like paintings than photographs.

Re: Sep 07 Contest Votes

Apart from the required elements I was looking for good retouches without too much plastic surgery, without perfect symmetry (including hair and neck), and without too much of a Vegas, Egyptian or Interplanetary look.

1. Wojtek - Very nice retouch
2. Lorraine - nicely coloured and polished.
3. Noud - good use of colour to achieve frosty hair look.
4. Didiben - dramatic use of shadow and hilite.
5. Arnold - best icy stare, hair's a bit rough but could be simulated with a can of spray snow.
