Judging :gallery:

Winners are selected by me and my twin sister Leffie :iconleffiedeviant:. We will use the following criteria:

  Creativity – Show us how creative you can be! For example, you are free to add clothes and enhance the women’s designs.

  Skill – How well can you paint/draw/craft? We are looking for detailed pieces that show off your style.

  Composition – The placement of certain elements should be well thought through.

  Use of colours – How well do the colours fit with the message/idea of the piece? You can use the original colour scheme if you wish, but you are not restricted to this.

  Overall impression – Based on our personal impressions of the pieces: how effective are they?
