Time to vote!

Polls will close in about a week.

Participants must vote 10 for their own entry, and fairly for all the others.

The next post contains the compilation of all images, attached.

Some captions:

07 - Baby pictures are so cute
10 - "N-no, don't run away! I made you pancakes!"
12 - So these two roaches are all *suckle suckle* and this other roach all "WTF we aren't even mammals."
16 - They say small things are cute, so here is my pixel roach!
19 - Appeal of the Roach Queen.
20 - A Roach Dressed As A Pretty Pony Drawn Entirely In ASCII Characters
21 - "Sir, is that a sword? No, no, let's not settle things in such a brutish manner."

Okay, voting time. As usual, comments go in a secret tag so as not to influence people who don't want to talk about it before voting.

(Me, I believe a healthy discussion is good for democracy.)

Whew.

Too bad calamarain and Claythro don't seem to be active. I'd have liked to see their entries.

Edit: I find it interesting that at this moment, every entry except #19 has at least one 1 vote, which in many cases is the only 1 vote an entry has. Perhaps someone is being uncutely cutthroat...?

Sure, why not? Scores are bracketed into high (8-10), medium (5-7), low (2-4), and outright 1.

Honestly, I was rather saddened by the, err.. lack of quality that some of the entries put out. There are a number of good entries, but also a lot of bad ones that look like they were made by a bored twelve-year-old as a prank. Can I recommend that the obviously trollish entries not count toward the 8-timer prize?

EDIT: I noticed (at the same time as Jatopian did) that every entry except 19 has a 1 vote. Not to claim that the entrant intentially did that, since like Imer said, the voters seem to be a tough crowd. Maybe that one entry has escaped a 1 rating (though it does have a 2 rating).

Below are my comments and votes, secreted for space and to avoid influencing other people that do not want to be influenced.

Three comments:
-I understood from the rules that the roaches had to be DRAWN (with either RL or digital tools).

-I voted more for the cuteness of the drawing rather than for the quality of the drawing (even though with higher drawing skills, cuteness is more easily achieved).

- Ratings are sorted as: low (1-3), medium (4-6), high (7-10)

Good contest. A simple idea but I think some of the entries turned out great.

I posted my votes last night, but I think I should give my thoughts about each piece.

I voted for both apparent effort and overall cuteness. I'll not post specific scores to avoid giving away which one is mine.

Phew!

As this is my first contest, I think it's really fun to see what sorts of silliness this community can produce.

Pearls, if you don't come away with some sort of booby prize for this contest, it would be a crime.

I thought nearly all of these were good efforts, and I really enjoyed the work you all put into them.

I voted up entries that made me smile, showed good skill, or seemed to take a lot of effort to produce. While I personally would have drawn something (had I the time to) rather than editing a photo, I voted for the overall idea and execution rather than strict adherence to theme.

I enjoyed them all. Thanks for submitting! Sorry again I didn't have time to enter myself.

Pearls's commentary is cute, but it's painful for me to read through. I find myself taking it too seriously and disagreeing with most of it entirely, and cannot seem to escape that mindset long enough to appreciate the absurdity.

This discomfort, however, moved me. 10/10.

I couldn't bring myself to vote anyone here under a 6. Everyone did a great job, and putting yourself out there artistically can be hard.

My favorite was 20 for much the same reasons as Trickster. More than any, that one made me laugh out loud :)

There's no way to say this without coming across as having a moment of great hubris, but honestly, while I was writing them I started taking myself too seriously, disagreeing with my own points, wanting to go down so many different interpretive paths, even though I knew wasn't being completely serious.

I managed to troll myself.

I think everything Pearls said was wrong... Intentionally.

Either that, or he needs a healthy injection of pop-culture reference.

The fun part of this assessment is that this leads to the possibility that I could've said something right. As if I believed the artists really did intend to portray any of those things I said. I mean it's possible, but I doubt it.

This was a cute roach contest. How did...I think I need to tell more jokes around you, Trickster.

I'm rather dissapointed that nobody entered a few red sploches (possibly in a faintly roachy shape) and titled it "The Only Cute Roach". (Mabye with the caption, if you ask any smitemaster)
Or even anything vaguely like this. I would have, but I figuered too many other people had the same idea and were planning on entering.

Also, is it me, or does it seem like pearls spent more time making his commentary than most people spent making their entries.
