You liked Spirited away so I'm sure you'll like the rest of Miyakazi's works.
So here's Princess Mononoke with a touch of Bia

Stuff Came up so I wasn't able to do everything I wanted with this avatar but I personally like it.

I decided to mix two inspirations into a little Bia cocktail, the first is Nausicaa and the valley of the wind I made a few changes, and added in a second piece of inspiration for the background, which after deciding howls moving castle was just too detailed to do it justice in a short period of time, I settled for a somewhat lacklustre laputas castle in the sky

I decided not to enter due to lack of time and inspiration, however yesterday I went to a friend's house and watched Tim Burton's Corpse Bride and was soo inspired!

I hope 3D animation is also accepted :)

So here goes: Bia - Corpse Bride 's style <3 with 2 different croppings.

Um, like this is really necessary, but Muroni of Midnight.

I really wanted to do a firestar image of Bia, but lacked both the time and the talent. Obviously, I suck doing things by hand, but it was fun goofing off.

Bia, as Daphne from Scooby Doo. Maybe even an animated one later =P

I was busy covering the oceans, so now I shall close the contest. Judging shall likely take me a few days.

You may continue to discuss the entries if you wish, but please do not edit any posts.

Billions of Blistering Blue Barnacles!!! There is some serious talent in here. How is Bia ever going to pick one out of all these fantastic works of art? I would have a panic at the thought of judging.

I'm a poet and I can't even begin to express how much I admire all of you artists.

Bravo!

Oosa

P.S. Thanks for the amazing event, Bia. I hope more events like this emerge--I have enjoyed reading the thread as a curious onlooker.

I must say, it was quite difficult to do the judging. Over sixty avatars were entered into the contest, by more than thirty players, and all of them wonderful in some way. I enjoyed the choices and interpretations you each brought to the avatars and thank you all for entering.

I did not expect quite so many Miyazaki-inspired entries when I began the contest, but given his popularity and skill, that should not have surprised me. I did enjoy how different many of them are.

Perhaps the most surprising omissions were some obvious thematic choices, either for pirates (such as Treasure Planet or One Piece) or Greek Gods (such as Disney's Hercules). Even so, I enjoyed all of the animations that were chosen.


Honourable Mentions
  • Docktarte, Sage - Matches the Powerpuff Girls style very well. The text and background adds strongly to it.
  • Falmari, Midnight - An impressive seven avatars, but The Venture Bros. catches my eye the best
  • Gtmac, Cobalt - The Turnip Head avatar makes me smile. The flip-book makes me laugh.
  • Gwiddon, Sage - Very evocative of the Rugrats.
  • Rhodin, Viridian - I did laugh.

    Runners Up - winning a Bia Egg
  • Chiichan, Sage - My only familiarity with Pippi Longstocking is from the 1988 feature film, so I shall have to take some time to watch the more recent animated series, which I did not previously know about.
  • Fogg, Sage - I am quite curious to see the inspiration for this avatar, but it does not seem to be available in my area, so I shall likely have to wait. The trailer looks very impressive.
  • Groshawk, Viridian - Very well done in Aoyama's style. The Japanese text is a very good touch.
  • Hippihanni, Sage - Trebuchet looks very mischievous. The framing of the first Avatar is very well done with the trees and the moon.
  • Lamour, Sage - An impressive collection overall. The two Miyazaki avatars match each of the movies very well, and the Dr. Slump one is extremely close to Toriyama's style.
  • Pogo, Midnight - A wonderful set of avatars that each fit the animation style chosen very well while still retaining a distinct sense of me
  • Sancha, Midnight - A well done introduction to a new piece of animation that I shall have to try.
  • Silveransom, Sage - I do hope I shall not have to detach my own arm at any point. The patchwork Trebuchet is wonderful.

    Winners of the Bia dolls
  • Pareia, Viridian - Extremely polished and well reminiscent of the Roger Rabbit style. It certainly catches the eye.
  • Salmagundi, Sage - Perhaps my favourite avatar, both for series and for how well it matches the style of Kim Possible.

    Again, thank you to everyone who entered.

    woot thank you so much Bia for the fun event :P
    I wanted to do an animated One piece Bia - who ate a devil fruit called Baki Baki (i.e. Bake off fruit) and has a special ability of making hundreds of duty stations in one finger snap :P (Ok, seriously, I should stop reading this comic, it's getting to me >.>) But I didn't have the time to make it so I had to drop the idea :P
    Anyhow, it is a great surprise to be one of the runner ups, since there are so many awesome entries ^^

    Thanks goes out to Bia for hosting this fine event. It got my artistic juices flowing. I had fun creating the 3 that I did. (started one based on Powerpuff Girls, but didn't like how it was turning out.)

    Thank you to Salmagundi for the shout out. :D From one artist to another, that means a lot to me. <3
