wow, so close a vote! and so many late votes!
a fascinating way to view results, darkerlight. thanks for posting that!
wow! my favorite was the one with the umbrella behind the androgynous figure's back, gosh i shoulda recruited a vote or two! one vote behind. well the reason i so loved it was not only the incorporation of the kumoricon chop and the gorgeousness of the artwork itself, but also because it really stands out as unique. every single entry is stunningly beautiful and would have made a lovely mascot. but this one breaks the norm of cute, light, pixielike figures, with a tinge of sly and you kinda have to wonder what she's up to....kinda looks like someone cooking up a plan, something up her sleeve....gives the semiotic impression of you never know what you can expect, we will surprise you, you will be stunned and amazed by our work, etc.
for some reason it sort of also reminded me of what count d from pet shop of horrors, my current fascination, would look like if he were an 18 year old girl...must be the hair
anyway, great work everyone, including darkerlight for again making creative and unprecedented use of a voting site. would the creator of this particular image described above, mind if i printed a copy of it for myself?
negima: hi! i hope you don't mind my letting folks know that negima may be modest about his talents, but he won our manga contest last year!
he and all of you should feel free to practice with Copic markers in the Creation Station! copic will once again be the corporate sponsor of the creation station's art contest and related activities, as they were for our work at sakuracon. we will have ink pens, markers, and air brushing equipment available almost all hours that the con is open! just sign them out with your name and badge number and use them only in the room and compete in our contest!
