I'm not going to make a long winded post up front since I'm sure all of you want me to just get to the point, so without further ado... Here are your winners!
There's a bit of a catch though.
The plan was to give 1st place the illustration, and that stays that way! Aelita will be receiving a full illustration to go along with V13's release. However, the idea had surfaced while the polls were open to give 2nd and 3rd place artwork as well, which I really liked. Therefore, Erin will also be receiving a full illustration that will be released after V13 comes out, during V14's development. But then there's Melia.... And as much as I might probably disappoint some people with this, Melia has been featured in a lot of artwork already. After some discussion with the rest of the dev team, we've decided that the illustration will be given to Venam instead, who placed 4th! That way we can keep things fresh, and give a character that hasn't had as big of a chance in the art spotlight a full illustration instead. This illustration will also be released during V14's development, though it's possible it'll release alongside V14 instead if there's too little time to work on a second full piece. Hope you guys are looking forward to the art regardless!
Now, back to the poll results... I did have to purge a couple of submissions or deem some invalid due to them being repeat votes of the same thing in the same submission (or reborn characters... im looking at the ppl who voted adrienn despite me having said the cameo characters dONT COUNT), so not *all* of the votes are listed -- especially for the things/people that only got one vote -- but here's a couple of the funnier ones we've seen between the answers/votes!
- "PIRATE VALARIE AND HER BABIES (me)"
- "that edgy guy with the latios i forgot his name" (Damien)
- "YE, ye, Ye", three votes in the same submission
- "Geara's left shoe 1, 2 and 3"
- "Ninja Nim"
- "Pupper Master"
- "i don't even remember what the characters are named at this point, sry for wasting your time have a nice day"
- "Kanye west"
So, how do you guys feel about the results? Were they as expected, or are a couple of placement surprising to you? Feel free to discuss it!
Also, there's a wallpapers of the artwork made for this without the text able to be found here! I'll also be linking it in the official art thread under wallpapers.
Thank you all for voting in the poll! This was a blast. Maybe we'll host another one of these in a couple of years once we're a couple versions further!
Until next time y'all o7
