GST 1st Round 01 - Voting!
Voting System (READ CAREFULLY):

The poll consists of every participant (except for the 2 dis-qualified people). You may choose up to '7 choices' on the poll judging on each battle and the signature that attracts you most. It's recommend you pick one winner for each battle to keep things even.

POLL VOTES: Each point on the poll is equivalent to '1 point'. For example, 40 votes is '40 points'. Simple enough?

MANUAL TEXT VOTES: Each manual text vote (which is normal replying) counts as '10 points'. For example, 40 votes is '400 points'.
How to manual text vote - Reply to this thread choosing the battles you want to comment on with a legitimate reason or two. Also simple enough?

Extra Prize: If the tournament finals winner exceeds 1500 points, he/she will receive a reputation point from me (which is 100 rep points) at the end.

Vaizado 10-24-2008 07:25 PM

Luciane VS Senpai No contest
Glarbage VS HolyAbyssal Clean look. clean render.
Haiko VS Kudaranai wins there is more time spent anyone can tell easily by looking at it.
ShunWolfkin VS Rhikiri can't decide.
WhatThePhuc VS Bob, wins because it is better
Jono VS k0n k0n because Jono's sig is way past the 200px height limit for a sig (at least on this forum)

DemiGodDanzig 10-24-2008 07:26 PM

the three that got my immediate attention were Senpai, Haiko, and k0ns~

Kowiz 10-24-2008 07:28 PM

For the people just naming names, of who they voted for..

You're suppose to give a reason, or I don't think the manual text vote will count

Haiko 10-24-2008 07:30 PM

I will look at them carefully, decide, and edit here. Awesome entries everyone, and good luck. ;3

DemiGodDanzig 10-24-2008 07:31 PM

oh,i was just listing em off as what i thought,not really doing it for that

Jumpstart 10-24-2008 07:33 PM

i think i voted for: Luciane,Glarbage,Vaizado,Haiko,Rhikiri,WhatThePhuc ,and i think i voted for k0n

Red 10-24-2008 07:37 PM

This is not a manual text vote, mine will follow after.

Anyways, Haiko's signature might trigger the votes from cleavage lovers while Kudaranai's might trigger the cuteness both aimed at a good audience.

eh i voted for Haiko because i'm not much of a cuteness type of guy. and inplus Haiko's looked extremely realistic

Shnao 10-24-2008 07:54 PM

Bolded names are who I voted for.

Luciane vs Senpai - Reason: Very close match IMO, Senpai wins for her tablet hax ;_; it adds to the grunge effect quite nicely~

Glarbage vs HolyAbyssal - Reason: The image hit the idea right on the spot; plus, nice cell shading. ;o

Haiko vs Kudaranai - Reason: Even closer match. Very nice effects. However I'm attracted more to Kuda's for the more popular choice of anime, I have no idea what Haiko's is. D; Both were done o so well though~

Shunwolfkin vs Rhikiri - Reason: Shun's had a bigger contrast from the original picture than Rhi's, IMO.

WhatThePhuc vs Bob - Reason: /blinded @_@ However Step wins for the more blunt statement of the futuristic theme.

Jono vs k0n - Reason: Both hit the theme and style but k0n wins for demonstrating MMOG with more detail and effects, IMO.

There, people should follow this example. o: Unless someone else comes with something better.

Ascherit 10-24-2008 08:17 PM

Glarbage - Followed the theme and style right to the dot. I like how he included a wall for the graffiti to go on.
Shnao - Orange overload, haha. However, I like the fact that he took advantage of the theme and placed a vectored fairy within the signature.
Haiko - I like the render used. It adds a lot to the signature and the colors are coordinated. (the text is kind of hard to read, though)
Rhikiri - His signature shows a better technique of photo manipulation than Shun's (turning the calm beach into a violent one), but I like the fact that Shun added snow caps to his mountains. :)
Bob - I like the simplicity here. It expresses both the theme and style without having to put much into the signature.
Jono - Expresses the theme and style, and I like the fact that he vectored the computer himself and incorporated MMOG into the screen. (and the MMOG 'O' mascot)

Yume 10-24-2008 08:33 PM

Senpai - Her sig seemed to stick to the theme more than Luci's. Also from the looks of it, Senpai did the building sketches herself which are nice. I like the rough lines on it.
Vaizado - Although I don't like the mecha bot that much (but that's just me), I like how he had all these neon colours that went well with each other yet still stuck to orange as a main colour.
Haiko - I really like the colours he used along with the render. I don't know how to describe it, but I just really like his sig. Cleavage is also +____+
Rhikiri - I'm not too fond of the sky and mountains, but I like the water part of it. :x Also with Shun's sig, I'm not that fond of a Christmas tree and palm trees together.
Bob - I liked Phuc's sig also, but there was too much going on. Bob's was a bit more focused on something.
K0n - I just generally like it. I liked how he made things float around and such. He included a lot of titles and "O" dude images without making the sig too 'busy'.

k0n 10-24-2008 08:46 PM

Glarbage - Smooth and very solemn color breaks makes a decent example of cell shading which won my vote for this category.
Kuradaranai - The signature was clear and vivid. It took less effort to look at it and realize what it was that won my vote.
Rhikiri - The image was crisp and I could tell what the image was describing about.
Bob - The signature was very sleek. They both hit the topic, it was just that Bob's simplicity won me this round.

I'm still undecided about the rest.

Avarice 10-24-2008 08:48 PM

Bold is for whom I voted.

Lucaine vs Senpai

At first glance, Lucaine's stands out, but after a couple of seconds, Senpai's caught my attention.

Glarbage vs. HolyAbyssal

I honestly don't know what vector or cell shading is, but in terms of graffiti art, Glarbage did really well.

Vaizado VS Shnao

Shnao's has a semi-abrasive orange colour to it which isn't annoying, but makes it pop out of the page. While Vai seemed to capture the fantasy side, fairy dust didn't seem to come to my mind. Shnao's captured every element of the contest.

Haiko VS Kudaranai

Kuda's screams anime, at least to me. I still love Haiko's though.

ShunWolfkin VS Rhikiri

I love how his mountains stand out in contrast to the violet sky.

WhatThePhuc VS Bob

Bob's stands out because it's simple and clean. However, her's doesn't seem to be very futuristic...I can't even tell what that is, actually. Phuc captured the futuristic part very well. And lol at 9001 AD.

Jono VS k0n

I like Jono's concept, but k0n's was all around outstanding. Very bright, cheery, and MMOGy

Haiko 10-24-2008 09:03 PM

Luciane vs Senpai

At first, I thought Luci's very attractive, but when I analyzed them better, Senpai's made more sense to me. The typography also blends very well and, for me, it looks like this: a "polluted" (grunge) city. The cityscape tells you to run away from the city, looking to the rainbow sky away. Thumbs up. :gar:

Glarbage vs HolyAbyssal

He really caught the spirit of the theme. Clean, smooth. The graffiti could be a bit stronger, tho. Still, good work.

Vaizado vs Shnao

Still to decide, very very difficult to decide here. ;-;

I like Vai's sig more. In my opinion, Shnao's was good too, but there's only orange/white, so it gets kinda... eh @_@
the effects on the side were also toooooo much, there's too much things there, you can't see what's supposed to be the bg and what's supposed to be the effects. Vai's used orange, but also red and green, which was a good choice, too. The effects are good as well. If it only had some kind of fairy instead of a Samus... D:

Haiko vs Kudaranai

!11!!11111 (ignore it, lol)

ShunWolfkin vs Rhikiri

The whole photo manipulation thing appeared more here. A calm and peaceful island > RAGEEE sea. The sky was very well done, too.

WhatThePhuc vs Bob

Looks a LOT cleaner to me. Step's sig is just full of stuff happening at the same time, it's hard to tell what's going on at first; too polluted for my eyes. ;-; Bob's signature still maintains the futuristic feel, and the C4D was well-chosen.

Jono vs k0n

Jono's concept was AWSUM. I really liked the idea, srsly. :3 But k0n's was much more well executed, with more details and blah. Jono's was WAY too simple, and too big as well. @_@

moffit 10-24-2008 09:06 PM

Senpai- Has more a feeling of grunge to it.
Glarbage- Seemed to follow the theme better.
Shnao- Not only used orange but used the fairy dust/fantasy better. Vai's seemed more futuristic.
Haiko- I like the style better, and the bewbs got me. :<
Rhikiri- I liked that the rock formations literally came out of the box.
WhatThePhuc- I can tell what I'm looking at here, while 'm not sure what Bob's is. :<
k0n- Seemed to use the space better.

WhatThePhuc 10-24-2008 09:18 PM

Glarbage VS HolyAbyssal
i like glarbage's graffiti better, it's more like graffiti i'd see irl
chesters vs orange juice
i like orange juice's better because it exists
vaizado vs shnao
i like shnao's better because it has more to do with fairy dust/fantasy
epic vs kenjii
i like kenji's better because it exists
jono vs kon
i like kon's better because it's shinier

NoeJeko 10-24-2008 09:28 PM

Luciane: I'm not entirely sure what Grunge style is in relation to art and Luciane's was much cleaner.
Glarbage: When I look at both of them, Joey's says "vector" more than HolyAbyssal's entry
Vaizado: The green helps break the monotony of the orange and Samus is the sex.
Kudaranai: The colors in Haiko's signature seem to bleed - I'm sure it was intentional but it really stands out next to Kuda's.
Rhikiri: Overall much cleaner entry.
Bob: Step's has too much going on and it's hard to tell just what it's supposed to be.
k0n: Better arranged and Jono's entry could not be used as a signature on MMOG as is due to the height.
