Thank you, Drakxxx. That subtle KoopaDasher > TwilightMystics will certainly give me the upper hand xD.
Might I suggest that you link to the boxes on our pages, so that they can see the hi-res versions?
Great box of course, TM. Good luck.
Hah! Links provided to your Hi res submissions. I'll do that with the rest of the entries in this comp for sure, thanks Koopa.

I gotta vote for Koopa! I just love the template he used and because he made another box with it with colorful results. Im not saying that I don't like Twilight's, It just I don't like how the last screen shot is so BIG, maybe if it was smaller but its still great. So I gotta go for Koopa!
Koopa gets my vote.
Awesome template, wicked drawings, and its Pokemon!
Both boxes are good but the background on koopa's box is terrible. Its a generic windows wallpaper. I love everything about TwilightMystic's box so thats who I'm voting for.
I really expected this to be more one-sided since Koopa did a Pokemon box, and it was so well-received back when it was uploaded, but I have to say; Twilight really took me off-guard.
Koopa did a better job designing a box, but this isn't a design competition, it's an art competition. Twilight really pulled that off better. Sorry, Koopa, but if you had done a bit more artwork, and made that more the focal point of the box, rather than using that design for the background with your drawings..I might think differently.
I'm voting for TM.
This looks like it's going to be close, though. You should both be pretty pleased with that.
It's not really that enjoyable to get completely annihilated. I mean, completely and utterly mutilated in a one-sided match.
Ow koopa I have to say, good luck with this round. And I tried to make my art as good as your artwork :P
KoopaDasher gets my vote.
Explain why you vote for him!

I like the fresh feel of Koopa's artwork. Both have great design sense working in the layout.
I gotta give my vote to KoopaDasher.
Yay! I choose KoopaDasher, because his art and box looks well designed and well thought out.
Mmm though you think the proportions of some characters are off, watch the trailer, and than you see, that Ven really is a small character, and Terra really huge. The Dark soldier has a bigger head than you might expect...so thats why I might look a bit off. But actually I've drawn it several times to get the proportions right...so you can't nickpit me about that!

@ StarMario22, though I doubt you'll come back to check, you have to give a reason as to why you voted for the particular contestant. I can't count your vote as is.
I'm going to let this round run throughout the weekend if need be. Best of luck gentlemen!
I meant basic body proportions. The legs on Ven seem really short and the arms on all characters seemed a little on the long side (Except Terra). Generally arms only go down to about the middle of the thighs. Ven, I think, still is a little too short (I don't remember him being quite that much shorter than Aqua). There was a period of time I would watch the hidden ending of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix every single day. I couldn't get enough of that.

I'm not saying your work is total crap or anything, far from it. Please don't take my evaluation personally.

Koopa gets my vote. The designs are unique when compared to other Pokemon boxes and the template looks great. I think that TM's text looks somewhat unprofessional and I'm not a fan of the screenshot layout. The art on the front and the background don't really match, either.
My vote also goes to Koopa. Koopa's art is heavenly, and the assortment of the back is luscious as well. Ven looks WAY too short TM. Although they are beautiful drawings, I personally think the proportion is wrong. In the trailer, they all look about the same height in my eyes, with Terra being the tallest (if there even is a 'tallest' in the group).
So yea, my vote goes to KoopaDasher
KOOPADASHER wins Round 1, and moves onto Round 2.
Both of you guys put a heck of a lot of effort into your designs, and it really shows. I'm honored to have gotten submissions like these for my competition. Thank you again.
