@The_Smiley_Face, I would like to tell you what I think the results for the DTP should be, as a judge, and why.
Honorable Mentions (3):
#1- @jsola: Her entry was beautifully done. The character was beautiful, and the lighting and shading were AMAZING. She is extremely talented.
#2- @WAFFL3: Although there were a few major design flaws, the style of drawing was just too cute!!! I love how she converted the character to a faerie, and it was just so amazingly cute. Along with that, the animation just brought out my heart. :)
#3- Rainbowskyes: The clothing choice, style, and colors were all excellent choices. The position she was in was just outstanding, and the lighting and shading were wonderful!!!! It made her look alive and vibrant. I loved the background, too. It was beautiful.
@Sokabella: Both of her entries were just precious. :) The first one was amazingly unique and it seemed like something you'd see in an adorable movie. The second one reminds me of more mature movies, but the lighting, shading, and anatomy were just outstanding. :) She looked pretty real, and all the designs were PERFECT!!! :D
@ancientdragon147: She was about to be 1st, but you'll find out why she didn't get my #1. Ok, there's so much to say about this. Ancientdragon is PHENOMENAL at drawing mange. The anatomy, the texture, the clothes, the lighting, shading, position, it's just so extremely impressive!!! This piece of art by her is nothing less then, well, words can't describe it. Something that just really made the piece ZING, was the intensity of the moon, and the beautiful, glowing feathers zooming past. Also, there's a hidden story behind it. Why is she crying? Why are there little tiny stars glowing in her dress? Why is the moon so large, when she's feeling so small? Why are there the feathers? Why is she alone? It was just so great.
@XxDemure_AngelsxX: Now, first she was going to be in 3rd, then I decided she should be in 2nd. I was going to push her back down to 3rd, because she and another user were being quite rude about my qualifications as a judge. Then I saw what that other person and I had urged her to do. She made not just that vector piece, which was already amazing, but she made a traditional piece too. When I saw the traditional piece, my jaw was literally hanging open. *looks at picture again* Yeah, it's amazing.
Well, first off, about the vector piece: The design she gave the girl, although it was a bit over the top, was still amazing. When Demure grows up, she needs to be a designer, or artist. The pillows, stuffie, and cloud, along with the soothing music were just beautiful, and the animation just calmed you down. It was so peaceful, and the girl looked so gentle and sweet. :)

The skill is beyond many, many people, especially me. Compared to her, my art is a scribble. The character has a beautiful outfit, following all the design, plus a LOT more!!! She truly just looked, so 3D!!! I don't know how anybody could've TRADITIONALLY drawn something that AMAZING and PERFECT!!!! Then, the background, well, I'm a big fan of forests, so this was, just all a beautiful masterpiece. :) :D ^^
Hi! This used to be big and such, but my opinion changed on AE studios. no more of the follower things. The only curators will be me and @Bluemadness107. If anybody wants to continue all of that, do it below. Otherwise, I truly don't care what happens to this, as long as it's not deleted, and there are no other managers. - Jan 19,2015, by @katiebug82304
As of March 18th, 2015, I will not be taking care of this studio any longer. Perhaps I will look into it occasionally, but I am officially resigning as an active manager. Thank you.
