Criteria by greenest-alien

:bulletyellow: Visual connection between chosen smoothie and character design;

:bulletyellow: Effort and presentation (avoid really rough sketches, badly erased lines, sloppy colouring, bad quality scans or photos, bad composition);

:bulletyellow: Creativity (try to come up with interesting solutions, just plastering patterns and colors over a character is not the way).

I will choose a winner, based on these criteria, together with the awesome brainlessbunny and Chibimouto-chan! :heart:


Tips by greenest-alien

:bulletyellow: Take into account the colour and shape of the smoothie you chose;

:bulletyellow: Make your entry clean and simple in a way that best shows off your character;

:bulletyellow: Choose a pose that shows personality; props and simple backgrounds can also help.

Does it have to be full body design?
greenest-alien's avatar
Well, it doesn't have to be, but it is better if you show the whole character. :)
