.Artistic Style (30 Points):
The overall cleanliness, complexity, and skill shown by the entry. This category is about the work of art itself, and points are scored by showing off artistic skills such as shading, coloring, anatomy, background-work, and other techniques that make the piece more visually appealing. Elements that can cost points are incorrect anatomy, badly scanned uploads, and other things that take away from the artwork.Character Accuracy (30 Points):
The accuracy of the picture to Seisui Naito's design, both visually and conceptually. This category is about the representation of the contest's subject, and points are scored by using the references to accurately duplicate the character, represent his personality, and utilize his abilities (if represented in the art) correctly. Things that can cost points are incorrect features, misrepresenting his personality, or showing him utilizing abilities that he does not have. Any questions about Naito should be directed to me in advance to ensure proper representation.Impact (20 Points):
The impact of the artwork, both visually and emotionally. This category is about how memorable the entry is, and points are scored by having a piece that makes a lasting impression through action, emotion, scale, concept, or any other element used within the piece. Things that can cost you points are bland concepts that don't stir interest, or images without impact.Creativity (20 Points):
The idea behind the artwork, its concept, and the use of Seisui Naito. This category is about the idea of the entry, and points are scored by exploring a unique aspect of the character or using said aspect in a creative way.__________'THE GHOST' CONTEST PRIZES__________1st Place Winner
