    Comments from Florian:
    When it comes to technical execution, picture composition, color scheme and shadow details on Merlin's father, this artwork almost reaches perfection. It also stands out by showing an original design for a character only ever mentioned in a single line of the story. To be quite honest, I believe that if we ever decide to create Merlin's father as a Unit, this design would be the concept from which we would work. Congratulations, Anung Un Rama!

    I would like to add that, if this contest's main goal was not to reflect the NeoAvalon lore, I would actually have picked Anung Un Rama's first artwork entry, showing Viviane in a style reminiscent of Alphonse Mucha's. This 19th century Art Nouveau painter has been one of my biggest artistic inspirations, and he himself found inspiration in Japanese art. His style eventually influenced mangakas in the 1970's, particularly when drawing hair in shojo. For generations, this influence has been shared and can still be observed nowadays in games like Brave Frontier. This shared culture and graphical style is very close to how Brave Frontier is handled across its different versions (Alim took inspiration from occidental folklore to create some Units, we are using our own folklore while using an art style similar to Alim's), and that is why this particular fan artwork is my favorite submission.
    The first entry from Anung Un Rama:
    [​IMG]
    Ce dessin est techniquement proche de la perfection en terme d'execution, la composition de l'image, le choix des couleurs, l'utilisation de l'ombre sur le père de Merlin sans parler de son design. Pour etre honnête, je pense que si un jour on sors le père de Merlin en unité, ce design sera certainement la première base de la conception. Félicitations, Anung Un Rama !

    J'aimerais ajouter que si le but du concours n'était pas de représenter l'histoire, j'aurai choisi le premier dessin envoyé par Anung Un Rama. Il represente Vivianne dans le style d'Alphonse Mucha, une de mes plus grandes inspiration artistique. Mucha est un peintre art nouveau du 19ème siecle qui s'est inspiré des estampes japonaises. Plus tard, son style a inspiré les mangakas des années 70, notamment dans le dessins des cheveux dans les Shojo. Cette influence s'est transmise à travers les générations de mangaka et se ressent de nos jours dans le style de Brave frontier. Cette échange de culture et de style graphique est finalement très proche de l'échange qui se passe sur Brave Frontier entre les differentes versions du jeu (Alim s'est inspiré du folklore occidental pour créer certaines unités et nous utilisons notre folklores en utilisant le style tres japonais de Alim) et s'est pourquoi cet artwork est mon favori.

    Quando si tratta di esecuzione tecnica, composizione dell'immagine, schema di colori e dettagli sull'ombreggiatura del padre di Merlino, questo lavoro raggiunge quasi la perfezione. Si differenzia inoltre per aver mostrato un design originale per un personaggio soltanto menzionato in una linea della storia. Ad essere onesto, credo che se mai decidessimo di creare il padre di Merlino come Unità, questo design sarebbe il nostro punto di partenza per lavorarci. Congratulazioni, Anung Un Rama!

    Vorrei anche aggiungere che, se lo scopo principale di questo contest non fosse stato di riflettere la storia di NeoAvalon, avrei sicuramente scelto il primo lavoro inserito da Anung Un Rama, che mostra Viviana in uno stile che ricorda i lavori di Alfons Mucha. Questo pittore dello stile Liberty del XIX secolo è stato uno dei miei più grandi ispiratori, e lui stesso trovò ispirazione nell'arte Giapponese. Il suo stile ha influenzato poi i mangaka degli anni '70, specialmente nel disegno dei capelli negli shojo. Per generazioni, questa influenza è stata condivisa e può essere ancora osservata al giorno d'oggi in giochi come Brave Frontier. Questa cultura e stile grafico condivisi sono molto vicini a come Brave Frontier è gestito attraverso le sue diverse versioni (Alim ha preso ispirazione dal folklore occidentale per creare alcune Unità, noi utilizziamo il nostro stesso folklore mantenendo allo stesso tempo uno stile artistico simile a quello di Alim), e questo è il motivo per cui questo lavoro è il mio preferito in assoluto.

    Wenn man die technische Ausführung, Bildkomposition, das Farbschema und die Schattendetails von Merlins Vater betrachtet, so erreicht dieser fast Perfektion. Es zeichnet sich ebenfalls dadurch aus, dass es ein originelles Design für einen Charakter zeigt, welcher lediglich in einer einzigen Silbe in der Geschichte erwähnt wurde. Um ehrlich zu sein, sollten wir und jemals dazu entscheiden, Merlins Vater als Einheit zu entwickeln, wäre dieses Bild wohl unsere Konzept-Vorlage. Herzlichen Glückwunsch, Anung Un Rama!

    Ich würde gern noch hinzufügen, dass, wäre es nicht Ziel des Contests gewesen die Neo Avalon Geschichte wiederzuspiegeln, hätte ich Anung Un Rama's ersten künstlerischen Beitrag ausgewählt, welcher Viviane in einem Stil zeigt, der an Alphonse Mucha erinnert. Dieser Jugendstil-Maler aus dem 19. Jahrhundert war eine meiner größten künstlerischen Inspirationen und er selbst fand große Inspiration in japanischer Kunst. Sein Stil beeinflusste schließlich Mangaka in den 1970er Jahren, vor allem beim zeichnen von Haaren in Shojo. Für Generationen wurde dieser Einfluss geteilt und kann immernoch in Spielen wie Brave Frontier gefunden werden. Dieser geteilte kulturelle und grafische Stil ist sehr nah an dem, der von Brave Frontier in seinen verschiedenen Versionen behandelt wird. (Alim lies sich von abendländischer Folklore inspirieren um einige Einheiten zu erschaffen. Wir benutzen unsere eigene Folklore, während wir weiterhin einen Alim ähnlichen Kunststil nutzen.) Deshalb ist speziell dieses Fan Artwork mein favoritisierter Beitrag.

    Cuando hablamos de ejecución técnica, composición, esquema de colores y detalles de sombras en el padre de Merlin, esta obra casi alcanza la perfección. También destaca por el diseño original de un personaje que solo se menciona en una única línea de la historia. Para ser sincero si en algún momento decidieramos crear el padre de Mérlin como Unidad, nos basaríamos sin duda alguna en este concepto. ¡Felicidades Anung Un Rama!

    Me gustaría añadir que, si el objetivo principal de este concurso no fuera reflejar el lore de NeoAvalon, hubiera elegido como ganador la primera aportación de Anung Un Rama, mostrando a Viviane en un estilo reminiscente al de Alphonse Mucha. Este pintor de Art Noveau del siglo 19 ha sido una de mis mayores inspiraciones artísticas y él mismo encontró la inspiración en arte Japonés. Su estilo finalmente influenció los mangakas de los 70, particularmente al dibujar pelo en shojo. Durante generaciones, su influciencia ha sido compartida y puede observarse actualmente en juegos como Brave Frontier. Esta cultura y estilo gráfico compartido es muy similar a como se maneja Brave Frontier a lo largo de las diferentes versiones (Alim tomó inspiración del folclore occidental para crear ciertas unidades, nosotros usamos nuestro propio folclore mientras usamos un arte similar al de Alim), y es por ello que este artwork es mi favorito

    Vraiment bravo à tous les gagnants, vos oeuvres sont sublimes. Je n'ai pas gagné, mais je n'avais pas vraiment d'espoirs ^^
    Cependant, sans vouloir être rabat joie, l'oeuvre de Fusto ne respecte pas les règles. Il fallait respecter l'histoire des NeoAvalon, LIEUX et PERSONAGES. Or la scène se déroule dans un vaisseau spatial, dans l'univers de Star Wars... Le dessin est très bien et même s'il est plaisant il ne PEUT PAS gagner un prix, je suis désolé : s'il y a des règles, c'est qu'il faut les respecter, et quelqu'un d'autre ayant respecté les règles mérite plus son prix que lui. Il serait injuste de priver Fusto de son prix, mais récompenser également une 22ème oeuvre me semble légitime.

    I'm not agree with the results ... there are winners jobs that aren't to the level of others who were also presented and looked better . Not everyone follows the rules, it's unfair.
    two months for this? What a waste of time -.-
    I participated with knowledge that probably would not win , but these results don't make me feel all happy.
    I recognize good work, including the winner, but others, in my humble opinion, shouldn't be there, and I can't see it fair.
    I followed closely the Bad Lands contest despite not participated , and some jobs were to win and won , when he was better, although there wasn't as many as in now.
    I decided to participate , I spent a lot of time to make my proposal and presented . And I expect everything to be as it was said that the rules were applied to all under the same conditions , but the view is that it isn't. I won't return to participate in your contests.

    I'd REALLY want to KNOW what kind of contest is this, in which you put some rules and then not even take them for yourselves.
    So "draws that represents avalon's lore"... where is that Lore in a star wars BRAVE FRONTIER models edition? and what's the lore in PErcival taking a shower? Or the one with Arthur rescuing Vivian in the lake, with BF models too.
    And the one picturing Morgana alone... it's really well drawn but, come the ♥♥♥♥ on! I don't see any lore reference there.
    And no, I didn't participate, but this really sucks.

    I have to agree with some of comments here :) some of pictures really don't have anything with original story, they are nice but still. I also compete it was a fun event also nice reward and everything but if you make some rules, you are the first in line to follow them.
    And one more thing w**. @@MrSnuggles give this guy/girl first spot and medal...this is picture is just breathtaking. When you look at it...damn I don't have any words to say, just look at the picture...read a story with it and shred a tear.

    Howdy :eek: didn't expect to see dear percevaldo in the top 20, and I surely hoped whatever the ending it wouldn't have made someone upset, far from it.
    I can only said I don't feel like it was 'off topic/off lore' as what was drawn is quoted in specific sentences of the lore, just drawn in a funny way: the event did leave some freedom, what's wrong in it :/
    I'm happy 'tho about the placement, as I'd have tried my luck for Merlin if I didn't check the results, so my unit of choice is Anima Merlin
    Regarding some of the comment I read here or on facebook I don't really have/want to add anything, mostly because I don't think is fair to dismiss anyone's work if they took their time in order to produce it.
    Remember that behind works you are bashing there are people like you that gave it their best, you wouldn't want someone saying 'your work sucks/is bad, x was better' and so on.
    Anyways, congratz to all the winners, I probably will skip further art events unless I get really unlucky in draws( who doesn't?..) so that with less entries people that got unlucky this time will have more chance next one
    Cheers
