    "every year the moogles in narshe forest celebrate the fall of kefka by bringing out the dragon in a box for all of the little moogles. in the hands of humans the toy would be quite dangerous, however, these are moogles after all!"

    Magical Miniature fireworks box
    No need for buying expensive, dangerous rockets and stuff.. a miniature, little, harmless, beautiful firework for children is the perfect gift for this year! Runs on magic and you can control the show with your hand movement, like color, amount of particles and variations in fireworks shapes...

    Planetary Mobile
    The planetary mobile was created by an adept from the great city of Jaggonath on the planet Erna. It was created using the magical earth Fae for the sole purpose of keeping the adepts infant child calm and amused.

    The shattered fragments of rock that came from the base now float suspended in mid air and very slowly circle around the base, while in the center also suspended in the air is an image of the solar system.

    EElevation: I really like the design of the dragon in the box. The choice of color and the over all design I find very pleasing as well as your style. I voted for you on these reasons but, I feel you didn’t quite make it look “truly magical” like the description said. To me it looks almost like a design that gnomes would make in the many of games that have gnomes


    jorge f. muñoz: I find your concept intriguing though I’m not sure if a futuristic TV qualifies for a toy. I also like the poses for the two battling figures. The only possibly problem I see is it still looks like it’s ran on technology instead of magic because of the base but, it could very well just be me so please, pay me no mind. I enjoy your unique style quite a bit.


    Dekus: I think if you would have finished this one it probably would have gotten my vote. I love your choice of colors, very vibrant and rich and the idea is great (truly magical) but, since you said it was only a sketch I didn’t vote for it.


    Shera 3000: The general idea that you came up with has a great many possibilities and it fits the description perfectly but, the over all work seems very much unfinished.

    Overall, I was disappointed with the quality and effort on this poll.

    Eelevation~ I like the concept, seems pretty sketchy for a final entry. I would suggest blur your background or desaturate a bit, and add more detail to your focal point (the toy) and clean it up, sharp edges good contrast etc. I love the fact that it is coming out of the treasure chest!

    JFM~ wasn't really sure this seemed magical to me... glorified TV? The overall rendering is well on its way! Keep at it!

    Dekus~ Very sketchy, for a final. Too incomplete for my vote, wish you had finished it!

    Shera 3000~ looks more finished then most! Like the concept, but still very sketchy for a final.

    kMh~ I like the concept, looks fairly finished. Technical suggestions would be more contrast.. i.e. darken the background and really emphasize the components within the mobile. vibrant colors for the "planets" more detail in the galaxies, and "space" stuff!

    My overall suggestion for everyone here is attention to details, contrast is your friend, and if you are going to enter, try to make things "look" finished instead of haphazardly thrown together at the last minute!

    Looking forward to future polls and work!

    Skrunchey: I appreciate the comments. This is in fact my 1st real digital painting so, I know I still have a lot to learn which, is the reason I’m here. As far as the contrast goes, I was playing with it quite a bit I made the contrast stronger on the base, box and some of the fragments of rocks floating around (the ones closer). The reason I decided to lower the contrast on most of the stuff in the middle is mainly because I have smoke and a fairly bright light coming out of the base and figured that it would ruin the visibility of some of those object. I could be very wrong on this but it was my best educated guess. However I will keep your advise in mind when working on my next piece, thank you very much.

    First off, thanks for the comments kMh & Skrunchey,
    now for the crits

    Eelevation>>You got my vote. I like the concept, although I'd like to see more of the toy design itself instead of the environment its part of...

    jorge f. muñoz>>I like the characters and the colors you used but I'd like to see a more refined version of the actual object, right now it looks more like a projector to me than a toy.

    Dekus>> Again, the characters, colors and design are nice to look at but some refining of the toy is needed.

    kMh>> Nicely painted, the only crit I have is on the concept itself. A mobile that projects real flying rocks is a little dangerous for an infant I would think, but thats just me...

    Overall, from viewing prior IDW threads, I was expecting to see more technical illustrations of magical toys.

    Hope to see more work from you all in future rounds!

    Although I didn't feel like commenting on it this time, I have to agree with Skrunchy on the quality in this round, most of the entries didn't really qualify as 'final rendering' to me. Then again, with Christmas just over and a new year around the corner I decided to just leave it this time.

    Next round I will be more strict when it comes to the final rendering, so keep that in mind

    Everything IMHO:

    EElevation
    IDW #54: Magical Toy - Voting
    pro - color palette
    con - not finished, without description hard to understand, a snake? crates?

    jorge f. muñoz
    IDW #54: Magical Toy - Voting
    pro - stylish fight, i like the magical holograph style
    con - not finished, girl has a small head, her legs are placed strange

    Dekus
    IDW #54: Magical Toy - Voting
    pro - anime eyes? ( i like risky people =P ) , great idea, good mood, would have had the votes if finished =)
    con - very sketchy

    Shera 3000
    IDW #54: Magical Toy - Voting
    pro - i want the toy =)
    con - not finished, no shading, anatomy of the right hand,

    kMh
    IDW #54: Magical Toy - Voting
    pro - seems finished
    con - seems a bit boring, static...

    FilRam
    IDW #54: Magical Toy - Voting
    pro - like it, dont know why
    con - too late =P , hand a bit to long.. but not the fingers

    Vote for kMh or jorge f. muñoz. Both have similiar concept and are finished enough but munoz is more magical and i dislike the feel of 3d...
