Unfortunate News

Hey guys, Unfortunately since task 2 was announced Nora and Rozalia had to drop out due to school studies. That means only one person is left. I cannot declare her the winner though as I wasn't even ready to crown one. So sadly cycle 1 has been canceled. I will be trying my hardest to get it back up and running. Isabella my apologies!

So without further ado, here is what Isabella would have been judged on!


Once again I apologize for this unfortunate news, but I do not have any bad thoughts or feeling to the amazing people who took interest in my idea and signed up!

Task 1 Judging and Results + Task 2

Hello everyone! Welcome to the results of task 1! Your very first judging! I would love to have you meet your other judge that will gladly be scoring and critiquing you along with me!

Yes, the model you used for your first task! Mia is an up and coming model who models for Faze Magazine, and our very own Jack's X Magazine! Plus Mia owns her own modelling competition Model-Fever, the top scenery modeling competition, and is an up and coming graphic designer! She is very smart, and knows what she is doing, and will call you our for even the slightest mistake!

For task 1 you had to do a very different graphic, that a lot of you may not have been super comfortable with! Never the less you guys produced some stellar shots holding or showing off any Gucci bag designed!

Now lets get onto the judging and scoring!


First up is....
MissFoxyRoxy913: First off, I really like this! Your dress is very very well made! The shading is spot on, and your make-up is very very cool. The skin, even though there isn't a lot, is very realistic, and is perfectly shaded! I am not too keen on the hair, and the bag placement though. I really feel like the hair could have been a little more shaded, but that is just me, and I wish you would have been having the model holding the bag because my eyes don't go straight to the bag, but the dress. The background is very well done, and has a undeniably cool feeling to it. Overall you did a superb job, and impressed me well this first task!

Justicelover94: Before we get into detail, I just want to rave about how much I am in love with this graphic. You capture the theme of the task perfectly, and I absolutely love the color scheme you decided to go with. The pinks and oranges are definitely more unexpected for the space theme, and I absolutely love that you chose a more creative route. The dress is so couture and I love it… That and the fact that you have the pile of Gucci bags that are off to the side, but still very noticeable. Your shading techniques are lovely too, and I love the hair style you chose. Overall, this graphic is pretty fabulous in every aspect. The only critiques I have for you, is the shadowing for the Gucci bags, and even though I love your originality, I think you could have made this graphic a little more futuristic in one more way. Honestly though, this is one of my favorite graphics I’ve ever seen, and it is such an honor that you made a graphic using my doll – so thank you! Love, Mia ♥

Next up is....

MissFoxyRoxy913: There's something about this that really gets me interested! I love the dress, the make-up, and the bag. But, the bag does not go with the dress in my opinion, also I don't see any Gucci logo anywhere. Luckily this is one of the best graphics I have seen from you, so I am impressed. The skin could have been done a bit better, and the hair as well. I love how the model is on the moon, and you tied up every single piece together! Overall, its a very good scene, and it just need a bit more work, and it could have been amazing!

Justicelover94: You absolutely nailed the futuristic part to the task. My doll looks so alien-like, and I absolutely love it. I really appreciate, how you were a little more creative with my dolls physicality, changing my doll’s skin tone was a really great move. However, although you nailed the space part of this task, I don’t think you quite nailed the Gucci part. The other graphics, had at least one key element that showed the Gucci logo, and made you understand that the client was Gucci. If I were just to look at your scene, I would just see a high fashion advertisement-I wouldn't have known the brand. Though that is probably the only critique I have for this scene. I love how your technique's different, and I am absolutely IN LOVE with this galaxy dress. So overall, you did a fabulous job with this graphic, and thank you so much for making a graphic with my doll! Love, Mia ♥Quality: 9/10

Next is......
MissFoxyRoxy913: First off, I must say, this seems a bit bland to me. There, to me, is nothing striking about this one particular shot. The dress is pretty good! I think its not shaded correctly though. It seems to look a bit like Play-Dough. I love the detail of the neck part of the dress. It seems festive, but very sleek. The Bag is really the main part here! I go directly to the bag. I do like how you made it a Gucci Ad! Very smart. The Background is very cool. It fits with the overall feel of this graphic. Overall, it needs to be a bit more fun it's a bit boring. But I think its a very good first task!
Quality: 7/10
Theme: 9/10
Style: 9/10
Effort: 8/10
Overall: 8/10
TOTAL: 41/50
Justicelover94: First off, thank you so much for making a graphic with my it is such an honor! As for the graphic goes, I am absolutely in love with the dress. The flowers at the top of the dress definitely add an other-worldly/futuristic feel. Plus, I love how the dress correlates with the background. I think your graphic definitely fits the task: The graphic is futuristic, and the Gucci bag is apparent and shown very well. The critiques I do have for your graphic in involving some of the technique. To me the mouth area of my doll looks a little weird. I apologize for not being able to tell exactly what it is, but something looks off. (I think my mouth looks a little too low under my nose?) Also, I think the shading of the bottom of the dress doesn't look very natural. Overall though, this graphic is beautiful: I love the blues, the styling choices you made, and the fact that this graphic looks like a high fashion add. Love, Mia ♥

"Feathers and Feircness"

Okay, you are my final 3! No one shall be eliminated as there will be a two part Semi-Finale and a 3 part FINALE!

So for this task, I have been inspired by America's Next Top Model. They seem to like feathers, and birds. So I shall give you a photo shoot that had something to do with feathers or birds. But I want it fierce. You can choose your own doll. There must be two models in the scene together. For help go here here

Rozalia: Americas Next Top Model Cycle 21 Photo shoot 8 "No Glove, No Love"

Nora: America's Next Top Model Cycle 12 Photo shoot 9 "Exotic Birds"
