    GagaDaily's Next Top Graphic Maker: Round 6 Entries

    1)
    11/20

    6/10 - I don’t get elegance from this graphic. She looks pretty, and the living dress is very glamorous but I don’t feel that you’ve captured elegance. I like the images you chose, but it seems too dark. Maybe add some other effects that would have brightened the graphic up. And also, I don’t care for the quote chosen. It doesn’t represent elegance.

    This graphic doesn't really carry the theme of Glamour and Decadence. The quote seems very mismatched and not many effects have seemed to be used. Compared to the others I feel this is a weak graphic. 5/10

    2)
    16/20

    7/10 - I really like this idea, but it was poorly executed. You can see smudges on her face. If you want to “erase” her face, make sure it doesn’t look all smudgy. The line of her hat on her forehead is also smudged looking, but it so be clean. Other than that I really love this. It does look elegant. The scratched texture does take some of the elegance away, but it doesn’t distract too much from the theme. I do like the quote and font chosen. Fits the theme.

    Really love the thought behind this graphic, you have really thought about the concept and have executed it well. The composition really works, a great balance of having the black type at the bottom with the black hat at the top. Really helps with the balance. Really love the treatment of the background too. 9/10

    3)
    15/20

    Great choice of quote and fabulous photo of Gaga to use. The clothes really give the impression of a blank canvas - helped by the overflow of material to the left. The use of the black shapes really help create balance with the black type. Good choice of font. 8/10

    7/10 - I like the picture chosen and the idea of using the texture of dress. I also like the design you made on the right side of Gaga. I just wish there was something to make it “shine.” It seems kind of bland. The right side is just her dress, nothing else. Bland. I feel that the text is redundant. I wish you used a different quote. While there is nothing technically wrong with this graphic, it is just plain and a tad boring.

    4)
    9/20

    The quote doesn't seem to really put this weeks theme across, and the graphic feels rather dark and messy. There is simply to many effects going on surrounding the two Gagas. The font doesn't seem very appropriate either. 4/10

    5/10 - I don’t like that the pictures are s burned. It takes away a glamorous feeling and adds grunge and a dirty feeling to the graphic. It just seems too dark to me. The text should have been a different color as it is hard to read in a few spots. Also it is very long and the font chosen isn’t elegant.

    5)
    15/20

    This is very simple, but really lovely. The typeface fits perfectly and the idea of the bubbles helps link the photo and the type seamlessly.
    7/10

    8/10 - Simple and beautiful. The bubbles you added should have had an outer shadow to give it a 3d look; to me the bubbles looked like cutouts to me, but upon second looking, I could tell they were supposed to be bubbles. I like the black and white effect in the bubbles. Cute idea. Nothing wrong with the text/font. Nicely done.

    6)
    5/20

    I can see your approach and thought in this piece but I really don't think it works strong enough with this weeks theme. The images aren't merged together to to well and Gaga centred hasn't been cut out to well. The border also seems rather unnecessary.
    3/10

    2/10 - Bad quality images chosen. No elegance/glamour in the graphic at all. The cutting of the Gagas isn’t the best, the edge of her hair is blurry. The quote “Kandy Life” doesn’t make much sense for the theme. It seems like not a lot of thought went into the theme and making of this graphic.

    Wait, what happens to the members who didn't hand theirs in?

    I know I already dropped out because I forgot to do my entry, but if I got a second chance, I would love to come back into the competition.

    ^ On this weeks challenge I posted that if you don't hand your entry in, then you're out, because people were abusing the pass system.

    If you're that serious about wanting to stay in, I'll let it go this time. But I can't be lenient in the future, cause I don't want people abusing the passes again.

    Still only one set of crits in guys. I'm so so sorry. I wish I could keep it on que time wise but it just doesn't seem to be happening. I was hoping to do a 2 week challenge this week so that GrizzlyBear 2 could have a clean slate for his week. But it seems I'm just gonna have to cancel next weeks challenge and let Grizzly take over for the week I'm away. Cause if I put up a challenge next week, I don't know if everything (entries/crits/eliminations) will be in on time for me leaving, and he won't get to run his week.

    Yes, I am totally serious about coming back into the competition. I was completely busy with my friends last week (we spent 2 days and overnight at my cabin), and I completely forgot about getting my entry in.

    If you can accept me back in I would be grateful

    Okay, you can still stay in. If you have any issues in future PM me and I'll decide then. I'm not trying to be a bitch by saying "no entry and your out" I'm just trying to make sure the contest is fair to everyone. NTGM is about being able to survive all the challenges, not pick and choose which ones you can do. Ya know. And thats not just directed at you, its a general statement lol.

    Okay, got everything

    Crits are up. if it's okay with the judges and it doesn't interfere too much with your schedules then I'll do a mid week to midweek challenge so I can get everything done before I leave. Or, if it doesn't suit, I can ask the members to vote on the entries this week so I can have everythong done.

    Does that sound okay to people. Means that you'd have the weekend to do entries.
