Well, now we will give you our opinion on 1st and 2nd places.
So :devicethemouse says: "In my opinion I preferred mispsyaravis, the story was full of action and suspense, it flowed nicely and I just love how she did the characters, emotions and designs. Cosmographia's was also very good, but it didn't pull me in like mispsyaravis's."
says: "For Mipsyaravis, her switch from digital to traditional didn't hurt her at all in my opinion. More polishing off would have been nice. A big issue I ran into was the size of the pages. It didn't hurt most, but there were some that because of it made words too small to read. And there were a couple panels that confused me with what was happening. But seeing everyone show up and contribute is what I like to see. The rallying of all those that care for the city even if not their own really gets your feels in motion.
Even though Cosmographia's last entry, like Mispy's, wasn't as polished as her other entries, the story was really the selling point here. It included everyone really well, gave the villain an interesting twist, the back and fourth between what was what kept me in suspense, and the farewell was touching (I had to get a transplant of feels...). A touch here and there where I couldn't read something popped up, and there were a couple misspellings that threw off what she was trying to say though. Had to reread to get what was intended. The massiveness of the entry did feel right for being the finale. You want to cover everything. Leave no stone unturned. End it with as big a bang you can.
So, my final verdict for first place, I believe Cosmographia was the better here.
I feel kind of bad having so many things bad to say though... SO LETS LOOK AT THE AWESOME THINGS! Two things that are canon either way. 1. Nika delivers a child, and 2. ASDKLJDKHKLSDJFHSKJHAS VERIDIC'S CHILD!!! Okay, done spazzing now :U"
says: "Alright. Pwned has managed to lay out the facts about this last round in a very clear and concise manner, and I have very little to add to that. Nonetheless, I feel I need to make your wait for me worth it, so let's have a mini review, da?
First off I'm sorry this has taken such a ridiculously long time on my end- I had no idea I'd have a few things thrown in my way that would keep pulling me away from reading and/or judging. Some of them are actually my fault. So again, I'm sorry to have kept you all waiting.
But anyway, I've read both entries now and reached a decision. However, first off I'd like to say both sides did a terrific job at conveying that 'final round' mood, and I'm actually glad we ultimately granted Mipsy that extension. But moving on.
For starters, I liked the out-of-the box approach to Mipsy's entry, as well as the many effective emotional and dramatic scenes she delivered. I could really feel all the tension involved with the characters and the situations they were going through. I feel she did a great work at depicting that eleventh-hour tension throughout, from start to finish, which at first heavily balanced the scales to her favor.
But Cosmo on the other hand delivered a much longer entry, which clearly allowed her to dwell much deeper into moods and emotions- allowing for subtlety and longer scenes instead of action and fast-pacing, which ultimately led to a very satisfying finale (ALL MY TEARS GOOD GAWED ;A; ).
Then there's the interpretation of the clue referring to the Fifth himself; and of course, I can't skip the fact that I loved how she took everyone's take on the Fifth into her entry, making the whole thing that much more well-rounded.
Unfortunately both entries featured a large amount of sketched panels and scenes- which didn't hinder the story all that much in either case, but there were still the occasions when following the plotlines became a wee bit difficult. In fact, I dread and fear that my previous dissection of both entries might come from misunderstanding something 8I So I had to strike this off my list of judging guidelines from the get-go.
Instead, I took note of the story progression and how easy things were to follow in each entry versus the other, and I have to say Cosmo's entry comes out on top in that department. Of course, both entries were still very enjoyable to read and quite engaging to tackle- but as far as closure and cohesion goes, as well as ability to keep the reader interested, I'm afraid Cosmo takes my vote."
What comes about me, i don't have much to add to what people Pwned and Dark have said already, however i must point at couple of things. Mispy, when you work with some things like clues or something alike make sure that you haven't lost part of it along the way. Because it may come out awkward. Also i think we all have learned how important deadlines are.
On a bright side - even negative experience is also an experience. Believe me, as i have been in several OCTs and i have learned a lot thanks to them.
And what we have decided on a 3rd place.
We've discussed what to do and decided that the best option in this situation will be to give 3rd place to a person who preformed well in the 2nd round, yet lost.
Thus 3rd place goes to ~luna--kai
Therefor Winners are:
1st place -
2nd place -
3rd place -
Okay, now while you are in awe i will go and send note to a person who will draw your prizes.
Also thank you everybody for being with us! We hope you've enjoyed this OCT.
