First of all, thanks to the two special judges: xangel0 and Fireflywishes that helped me! :3

Here we've the two judges ranks, with their comments! :)
XANGEL0's rank&comments:

Spoiler (show)

1st- Flyigh High - Mirtillo

Quote: This really caught my eye, I love the shadows and the monochromatic scheme make the blue eyes stand out, and her eyes have a mysterious look, that makes them the center of attention. Also gorgeous work on the hair, and all this is mouse-painted! This once deserves the 1st place crown ^_^.


2nd- Cloud - Darthtofu

Quote: I can stare at those eyes for hours! they have a charming feeling. The dark lines, the shadow and textured brushes, just make this Cloud portrait a must full view, nice fan art!


3rd- Flight - chubbykitty

Quote: I like the color pallete in this one, it gives the wall a vintage feeling. Like the merge of pencil+digital. The movement of the scales gives a ice touch. Altough the shadows as you mentioned in you description, are a bit plan, but bits just to explore some shadow techniques.


4th- GIMME ALL YOUR BLUE EYES 8d - aozoraskies

Quote: [Colorful wall is colorful! I love the coloring and composition, the surreal atmosphere that makes you stare at it and question yourself "what is that doing there!?". I like how you placed the blue eyes, but I'm not sure about how relevant they are, the main point of the wall is the girl, not the blue eyes. Overall its a very well done composition that went a bit off the theme.


5th- Aoi Shiro Natsu no Sora - EuforiaAmuritaNatsumi

Quote: I like the vectoring and coloring, its smooth and pastel colors plus the simple background are peaceful combination. The thing that bothered me the most was the green eye of the right girl, it grabs too much the attention, and some perspectives (on the same girl) are a bit odd. But those are things that you'll learn to manage with practice, keep it up!


6th- Promise - WizemakerS

Quote: I like the theme, scene and composition, also the colors choosen are good. There's something about the use of textures, all of them look flat, with no shadows, specially on the grass and church.


7th- Be my Luv ♥ - hitsu-chan

Quote: A couple, kissing in a sunset paradise, pretty romantic scene! the sketch looks godo too, just work more in the coloring and shadow/highlight areas, with a bit more of attention to detail your work could stand out!


8th- Privacy - NenrikiKaen

Quote: I love the idea, love the pose, but I think the execution its a bit of a rush. With a bit more of time, you could make this a masterpiece, right now its only like a rough of something really good.


9th- Copo de Leite - tsuyutsuki

Quote: I like the eyes and her serene pose, the background suites well with the scene, I like the lineart and colorín of her eyes. There are some issues like with the eyes, they are too big, some parts lack of shadows like her hair or the leaves, but you can improve that with practice.

Fireflywishes' rank&comments:

Spoiler (show)


Personal Note: When I was ranking these pieces I was looking for artwork in which the eyes really drew you in. I wanted to be wow-ed by the eyes, not just have them be blue as an afterthought.

1. Flyigh High - Mirtillo

Quote: When I first saw the image for this one I thought it was supposed to be an anime version of Marilyn Monroe. I was initially torn between this one and Aozora's for the top spot on my list, but I feel like with the monochrome/colorsplash-- mirtillo's piece really captured the theme perfectly.


2. GIMME ALL YOUR BLUE EYES 8d - aozoraskies

Quote: While mirtillo's had more of a classical interpretation of the theme, aozoraskies' piece was more of a whimsical interpretation of the theme. I really liked the bright, bold colors that she used

.
3. Flight - chubbykitty :

Quote: Even though the blue eye is subtle in this one, I think the choice to have the background be the same blue helps to accentuate and highlight the eye. Overall, I really liked the color scheme of this piece.


4. Cloud - Darthtofu

Quote: Tofu is dangerous with this theme... I swear I could get lost in Cloud's eyes forever... like falling into a pool of blue~


5. Aoi Shiro Natsu no Sora - EuforiaAmuritaNatsumi - EuforiaAmuritaNatsumi:

Quote: I really liked the character design for this one... especially the fashion! (Love that pink top!) That one heterochromia threw me off a bit. ^_^;;


6. Copo de Leite - tsuyutsuki

Quote: It wasn't until I full-viewed this piece that I saw that Reina's eyes were indeed blue instead of teal. ^_~ However, I think tsuyu did a pretty good job with someone else's OC-- I especially liked the shading on her bow. It looks very satiny/shiny. ^_^


7 Promise - WizemakerS

Quote: Overall, I really like this piece. You can tell that a lot of effort was put into the details. I also liked the character designs. Without the theme, I think it's a pretty solid piece. However, I think if both characters had had blue eyes (like you mentioned in your description) it might've fit with the contest theme a bit more.


8. Be my Luv ♥ - hitsu-chan

Quote: While I think the overall piece is nicely done and very romantic, I think that the blue eye is a little bit TOO subtle here. When put against such a bright color like yellow (the hair, setting sun) I feel the blue got a bit washed out.


9 Privacy - NenrikiKaen

Quote: Wow, what a cool background! However, I felt that there was so much going on that I didn't even notice the blue eyes. I don't think it helped that the character's eyes are fairly narrow to begin with. ^_^;;

Aozoeraskies rank&comments:

Spoiler (show)


1. Spring - Kotekigo

Quote: It's really clean, with no slippages in colour! I have to say, simply black lineart is not my thing, but the effect for this piece is tidy and anime-like. Overall, a nicely cleaned up and quite faithfully done reconstruction of the scan.

2. Cherry Blossom Spring - Hitsu-chan

Quote: With the spring-like colour scheme and the cute couple, the overall effect is very sweet and spring-like. I rather enjoy the soft combination of lineart and colouring here, it just works somehow. My nitpicks, if you would want them, is that you used black to outline parts of their faces which takes away a little from the otherwise soft lineart; and also bits of slippages with the red edges of the lace. Other than that, it's honestly a lovely piece and I like this cute style. :)

3. Spring Breeze - aIshiroi

Quote: The only non-CLAMP submission lol. First off, I really like the blurry shading and how you rendered Gokudera's eyes - the shiny effect is lovely! The colours are also nice and warm~ What cuts points though, is how very stark the lineart is against the soft colouring - it's a bit too contrasting at fullview, at least to my eyes. ^^;

4. A Rainbow for Spring - SamB

Quote: Technique-wise, it seems a bit too obviously inconsistent, with some parts having lineart and some without. Also, it appears to me that it would have looked smoother with shape layers for the lines instead of using brush properties like 'fade' or none at all.. It makes it look a bit awkward. Still, the colouring is quite nice, as always. :)

1. Cherry Blossom Spring - Hitsu-chan

Quote: I really like this one! It's pretty simple in tecnique, the colour palette is composed only by few colours, but despite of this the final reault is really nice and "complete" for my eyes! In additon you totally captured the contest's theme! :)


2. Spring Breeze - aIshiroi

Quote: The thing that I like the most of this work, it's the "softness" ot the tecnique and the pastel colours :) I really like the brown lineart, too...It gives to him a strange /relaxing light :3


3. Spring - Kotekigo

Quote: I have to say that you work here was amazing! But you went a little away from the theme, since the real "spring part" of the scan wasn't vectored so well :( So, you're vector style is great, but fot the contest you're a little "out" :(


4. A Rainbow for Spring - SamB

Quote: I always like your style of vectoring, but here there is some problems, expecially with the eyes. They're a little weird in this way and they don't have "depth". In addiction you strechted a little the theme respect other, so I have to penalize you a little >.< However it wans't a bad work, but it needs some little improvements ;)

wow, first place O.O thanks to all! I'm glad I got a tie with Aozoraskies, her wall it's so original :)

@Xangel0: your comment makes me so happy n_n thank you :D

@Fireflywishes: thanks to you too for first palce ^__^ and it's true! That dress seems to that weared by Marilyn Monroe on The Seven Year Itch. Even if I didn't think about that movie when I did the sketch, my idea was something similar to an ancient greek goddess dress, like Saori on Saint Seiya.

This contest was fun ^^ even if I almost died making that wall @__@
