My first impression when seeing this piece was, "Holy cow, how many things ARE THERE?!" I was drawn in quickly to the rest of the picture, and I'm glad I saw it, because there is a huge WOW factor here!
Vision: From first impressions - like the thumbnail - it seems like there's a lot going on. And there is! But this is not in a bad way at all - every character is easy to recognize, especially seeing as you drew them in their original style, which is not an easy task. And every character has a role, it seems - Layton's looking at the girl's outfit and game, the Kirby just seems to march, Phoenix is yelling at the crowd, Link is leading a follow-up band - even Mario and Luigi, in the back, are watching with confusion! Even the colors are stunning as well - each color is balanced, especially when you add in the background. The way it trickles off is only a slightly sudden touch - while it's abrupt, it's nothing extremely major to bother the picture. Vision definitely gets a five out of five!
Originality: I've seen some line-ups before of characters from different series following one player, yet this is with a renewed energy! Everybody has a purpose, whether serious, overdramatic, or even plain goofy! So while it's been done before, it's like a good casserole - adding one spice, like you did here, is like tasting a brand new dish! Originality from me is a 4.5!
Technique: Your patience is astounding. Not only was this done entirely with copic markers, but all are well-picked. Also considering that you spliced the pictures and then changed colors to get them back to their original coloring? I could hardly tell where you spliced it before I looked at the walkthrough, and even then I could hardly notice! Everything with the technique is stunning - another five out of five!
Impact: Put it all together: the colors, the action, the activities, the copics, the way everything is done - and it is absolutely stunning, not just as artwork, but as the story behind it as well. I have to give this a five out of five!
Overall, "GAME ON" is a wonderful picture that speaks loud and clear! It's just one example of an amazing gallery, and I'm frankly amazed by the talent. Excellent job cartoongirl7, and keep up the excellent work!
