Great standard this round (didn't bring mine to poll as I wasn't happy with the rush job I did)
1) Rolox I loved this entry, lovely use of colour & stylised form. Only CC I can think of is I might have altered the butterfly it was a bit more "cartoony" than the rest but I think thats just my personal taste.
2) Southern Lovely execution although not quite as stylized and original as Rolox I thought. Really reminds me of my first boyfriend lol! (Don't get me wrong I was very fond of him and he's a nice enough guy, its an appearence thing only! Chuck, Mates also is a little similar to him. hehe )
3) argh this was between JPedro & Timmy the Turtle for me, I think J pedro's has the most character and because I've been reading Tad Williams Storm series lately she really resonates with the Quanc troll folk in that for me, but I love the story in Timmys, arghhh..... JPedro - I love her too much but Timmy is my close 4th:
HONORABLE MENTIONS: (I know we're meant to only pick 3 but...
Timmy the Turtle lovely story and use of light I thought
Daveneale Very cute and lovely translucency/texture on that ear, but I didn't feel you were pushing yourself as much as you could have, sticking in the cute pudgy comfort zone a bit and I'd have liked to see a bit more narrative. x
Tommoy very nice execution just not as much to my personal taste as the ones above.
Machuca nice idea but I think it could have used a bit more on the render.
And finally Smot I liked your story and layout but maybe some areas could have used a little more texture/definition.
Thats my tuppence well done everyone for taking part
