My votes went to fydbac, lukavi and oregano. JessiBean, you were a close call on this one, but a) I feel like I've voted for you for the last four/five weeks and am therefore bias, b) it wasn't quite as strong as you've been doing. I still really like it, but I always (as much as I can) cut my vote to three. But at least I can say that you did a good job. I don't quite agree with grenogs on this one... I think the line/no-line combination is okay mostly... the only place it stands out for me is the hand, which has such a thick dark line around it compared to the face... I think you could fix that by having a little bit of a rim light on the underside of the wrist... it should bounce there anyway, as the arm is round...
anyway, i digress.
lukavi, I really love the style and feel of yours, and all the detail, hence my vote. The only thing that almost lost it for me was the face. But I think even though the face is still very stylized, the rest made up for it.
fydbac: There is nothing wrong I could say about it! I love it! I love the pose! I love the colour! ... well, okay, there is one crit. The only thing that bothers me is the colour of her eyes. I can see where you're going, I just think you should have either lightened it or darkened it up to differentiate between the fur colour and her magic eyeballs.
oregano: I gave you my vote on this one because I liked the cape once it was fixed, and the eye vs. the bead. The only thing I might suggest would be to up the contrast on the squirrel a bit, she's a little grayed out. (But, I'm not sure if that would take away from the bead/eye lighting, so.)
Too many of them didn't look like squirrels to me. :/ I could be very biased, having grown up in cottage country Ontario where if you don't have four squirrels living in your yard and one in your roof then you don't actually live there...
