Judge TheMajor’s Comments:

Question 1.Overall – How much of the fire element is well incorporated (or showed) around/near to the character aka Elemental User’? [Notes: The fire element is very minimal here. I would have liked to see it incorporated not only in the character but as maybe accent flames out and around the character which would have given this a much better overall dramatic flair and aided to the composition.]

Question 2. Overall – On the technical side. What would you rate this wall? Meaning; details, adds, background, ect. [Notes: Well for a cut out and cleaning job this is pretty good but there are some real issues with the quality of the scan (mostly resizing issues that create dithering) The BG is not bad, but I would liked to have seen more.]

Question 3. Overall – How would you rate this wall as a whole?

Judge TheMajor’s Comments:

Question 1.Overall – How much of the fire element is well incorporated (or showed) around/near to the character aka Elemental User’? [Notes: This wall is extremely well done. The use of fire is present in both the foreground and the background. Also the reflection of the fire light on the character make this fell very tangible.]

Question 2.Overall – On the technical side. What would you rate this wall? Meaning; details, adds, background, ect. [ If I had several hours to write out how technically good this wall is I would but, I’ll keep it short. The perspective is correct… the details and they are many and the range of focus matches the perspective. Also the character has a sense of reality as well as seamless detail.That is eye-catching, and the overall composition is perfection… technically and personally speaking]

Question 3. Overall – How would you rate this wall as a whole?

Judge TheMajor’s Comments:

Question 1.Overall – How much of the fire element is well incorporated (or showed) around/near to the character aka Elemental User’? [Notes: I love the fire, you recreated it so well. And it fits with the character and the background.]

Question 2.Overall – On the technical side. What would you rate this wall? Meaning; details, adds, background, ect. [ The foreground and the background on this work together really well, but the character seems rather small.]

Question 3. Overall – How would you rate this wall as a whole? [Note: It’s a cute wall with good composition, but the character is too small and it has no real “HOOK”. I would have loved to see this wall from the other side….This wall and her body position almost demand a facial expression. Food for thought next time.]

Judge TheMajor’s Comments:

Question 1.Overall – How much of the fire element is well incorporated (or showed) around/near to the character aka Elemental User’? [Notes: It was a good effort and you had the right idea but between the vector, background, & the fire they just don’t connect style wise they are so different from each other… none look like they belong with each other. The usage is absolutely correct but you should have tried to find better example of fire from FMA, they have such a unique style all their own it could have been easily incorporated from a number of other scans.]

Question 2.Overall – On the technical side. What would you rate this wall? Meaning; details, adds, background, ect. [ The technical elements individually are excellent but like I said earlier they just don’t fit with each other. Now the vector is superb. If I were you I would see what else I could accomplish with that vector… It has so much potential.]

Question 3. Overall – How would you rate this wall as a whole? [Notes: For future reference you must have at least 2 of 3 things in common. Remembering that you need to tip the majority in favor of one direction or another. This wall is very all over the place… and though it has theme direction it’s pulling itself apart through its differences.]
