Duke BG, I like everything about your entry except for the skin tones, they look weird.

misswirlygirl's backgrounds are just horrible, sorry.

N101's entry is decent, but a little plain.

Zen Rogue did a solid job. I vote for him. Appropriate strip for a guy with his name, too.

the main thing i have against zen rouge's is that the lines on bood's cloud are just a bit too _intense_ for me.

This is actually what's making me pick this one; the bolded overstylization is remniscent of a generic east asian brushwork wall scroll.

Duke. I like the fact that the seams in Monique's jeans aren't just black. It's cute. The brick wall is a bit intense but overall I like it.

I really like Zen's but the shadows are a little too much and Bod's cloud isn't right. If the rest of the strip had elements of that brush work, I would vote for it in a heartbeat but it is just too jarring as is.

Hmm this is really hard. There's no real standout this month.

Duke BG: the overall look is very low on saturation, so the wall in the first panel and buildings in the second look somewhat out of place.

misswirlygirl: I like the experiments with the backgrounds. The shapes are ok, the colors however are not.

N 101: try adding a bit of shadows and hilights. This really is too bland.

Zen_Rogue: sorry, I really prefer Ki-Lo's treatment of this one.

Despite its faults, my vote goes to Duke BG.

I would have voted for duke, but in the first panel I think the brick wall should be the color of the dress/shoes and the dress/shoes should be the color of the brick wall. To me, bricks should have a more brown tinge to them, not so bright. I like Zen_Rogue's too but Slick's hair seemed too yellow to me.

doh...well you gotta set a time limit on the poll then foo!

I think I missed my chance to vote, darn. Zen_Rogue's was stricking with the lovely highlights and shadow but I was gong to vote for the first choice for the unique clean look and soft coloring. It was difused and calming. Although I agree with Miss Fris' that the red in the dress and the brick wall were jarring and harsh compared to the rest of the strip which had a washed out softer scheme.

Darq, it's only votes in the posts that count, so the poll is more for decorational purposes.

Too late for this contest. You'll have to wait until next month's. But yes, in case those of you who are new to the contest on THIS forum, you must post in the thread and not just in the poll. Otherwise, your vote won't be considered.

yeah, but setting a time limit on the poll only makes sense
