I am going to be EXTREMELY subtle with my entry. I wager none of you will guess my entry.

So let's try to do the maths then..

5 minutes on Namek was 10 episodes (roughly 3 hours)

1 Namek hour would then be 36 hours

5 Namek days would be equal to 4,320 hours (180 days)

They are all really good. As someone who has great taste and knows good art better than anyone please take that as a compliment. This is difficult. #5 is the best in my opinion from a technical standpoint, very detailed use of toning and shading. There's also a real depth to 18's eyes that stands out to me, and of course the trademark cold expression she has is captured perfectly. I can't fault it.

But I also like unique, creative art that makes me feel something and #4 does that for me. I can't say why exactly, but I just like it. It's emotive.

#4 and #5 are my definitive favourites.

I like the line work in #1, there was real effort put into making Gogeta's clothes seem "real". Also very creative how his suit jacket is an altered version of his fusion outfit. The lighting here is fantastic also. Real detail and effort put in here to make the image feel dynamic.

#2 could use some more shading depth, but I like how the hair is drawn and how the lighting is done to give her hair some sheen.

Lastly #3, probably the second best drawn from a purely a technical standpoint. Great linework and shading and Videl's likeness is captured well.

I feel like I have to go with #5 because it's the best drawn all-round. But #4 is definitely more of what I tend to like.

We've got some very nicely done drawings here. All unique and ready to be admired!

Good luck to all the contestants and make sure to vote for your favorite in the poll.

I really like the 5th one. Really like the style. Really nice toning, as well as chosen color palette. There is not much negative to say here. Her left eye seems a little off yet can't pinpoint exactly what, but even that is nitpicking.

I also really like the 3rd one. Nice lineart and simple but effective cel shading. I will say a cleaner lineart and a bit more shadow work would do wonders. For example, if the light is coming from the top right of the picture, everything under her neck and on the left shoulder would be in shadow.

The 2nd one has a nice hair, and i even like the stylized face, but the proportions/perspective are off, namely on the back and tits.

The 4th one probably had the most effort put in it out of all the entries, and i really like the one point perspective as well as your ability to fit in so many people in the drawing, but its more of a drawing with a DB character in it than a DB drawing.

Unless you were trying some back go the future shit im not grasping

Entry 1 has too much me-pandering and ofcourse its too homosexual so im most disappointed in it.

Entry 1 - It's got that Spike Speigel, from Cowboy Bebop, vibe. I don't condone or push smoking but the art has nice lighting.
Entry 2 - That's a nice Android 21, she's looking back with a neutral expression but there's fire in those eyes.
Entry 3 - It's Videl. Nice foreshortening in the arm and she is drawn in a nice style.
Entry 4 - It's Trunks. Nice scene, the foreground buildings and Bulma's bike look cool.
Entry 5 - A nice drawing and painting of Android 18. The hair and face are rendered really well.

Although there were only five entries, they were all top shelf, quality.

General manager you're into the arts?! If I sent you some pictures of my work would you critique it?
