I wanted to do points but I'm broke alright? :c
Annyways, here we go!
Okay first of all.. I didn't choose her because she's my favorite Poptropica Artist and I'm a huge fan of her work, n-no that's not it..
just no -3-
Second, like come on. It's a damn clown. Who doesn't like clowns?
Jk jk I'll stop, I'll get to the real description xD
Alright, so the real reason why I chose her is because I like the way it shows that Art is meant for people to appreciate. Sure it may be simple, plain or just crap post sometimes, but we all like to see people have smiles on their faces. A little motivation is what an artist needs sometimes and it's what they need to continue their dreams of being the unique artist they always wanted to be. To be yourself, to spread happiness, and never stop drawing is something an artist should know. Speaking of which, here's a good reason why people should be happy; A clown. Clowns are suppose to make people laugh and smile from all their tricks and goofiness. All the colors really fits the scene pretty well. Even though this was just so simple, it expresses a lot. And the fact that Blaze always wanted to make people smile really struck to me. We all need to be happy don't we? Anyways, congratulations you meme, you deserve it. ;32nd Place:
Let's face it, we're all born to create something. We're all born to express ourselves, artist or not. We can all help contribute the world by just being ourselves. Just like Maroon here, she has been creating and drawing for 8 years until now. And through those years, she inspired a lot of people and they have been supporting her to continue her passion. We artists have the power to do anything. We have the opportunity to change this world through pen and paper. Like come on, our imagination's the limit here. Nothing can stop us from reaching our dreams and creating new worlds that contains marvelous ideas. We're all here for a reason. And one of them is to create, inspire, and be ourselves. Other than that, this piece speaks for itself that creativity is something artist should have. The colors and effects really fits the theme very well, so I'll have to say a job well done and I love your journey of becoming the artist you are today. Congratulations! :31st Place:
Damn that that looks amazing just by looking at it :0
But for real though, this has to be in first place. Because the idea behind it really hits me hard. And just thinking about the title "For Her" really gives me a million questions why "her"? And as soon as I read the description, I was like... woah...
And now that got me thinking, don't we all draw for ourselves? Because the reason why we draw art is because of us right? We're the reason why we create and express ourselves through art. Sure sometimes it may be ugly and we may not be proud of it but we still keep on drawing, we keep on improving to the artist we all are today. If we'd ever give up on ourselves, we'd be disappointed in ourselves. The person who always loved to create, just to survive was us, and if we ever stop, our passion of creating a new world will be forever gone. That's why you should never stop drawing. Do it for Her/Him, make that person proud, make yourself proud. And this piece, this is just amazing. All the details are just perfect. The theme of creating and making for *Her* really gives me a little bit of feels? I dunno xD But overall, this is a job well done Cri. Congratulations for being First! :3
Here are the winners! Congratulations to all 3 of you!!

Thank you all so much once again, until the next milestone comes up, I'll give you guys something very special :3
