Round 1 Scores


Round 1 - Women in Black 



 lasummerb with Ayana
Kallie
Comments: Ayana certainly looks confident and ready to take on the world. She has that classy but edgy appeal and the jewellery, bag, makeup and jacket, all fit in well for this particular shot. The background looks great even with its blurriness, as it keeps Ayana in focus although it does draw your eye to try to clear up the line of sight though. You could use the “blur” mod that clears in-game distance, I’ve found that really helpful for taking shots. Gorgeous tone of skin and the glow that she has is appealing.

Avery
Comments: Anya looks so stunning and I absolutely adore her outfit. The pants and shoes are really awesome. I think that she looks very sleek and sophisticated. The top is a little see-through, but you manage to balance it out with the shrug over it. The accessories are great, too; just enough but not too much. This looks like an in-game shot, but I'm not sure if you cut her out and placed her there because there is just a bit of heavy black outline around her hands. Otherwise, this is a pretty good editing job.

Anna
Great entry, I really love how you styled Ayana she looks gorgeous. Very classy! Her accessories work really well with the outfit too. I noticed a few bumps and jagged edges around Ayana, try using the smudge tool to clean them up! I like the background but I think I would have preferred it if it wasn't blurry but that’s not a big deal, good job!


NShippundenFan with Tiffany
Kallie
 Comments: Love her outfit, bag shoes, jewellery and how everything fits so well together. Her hairstyle suits the outfit. Tiffany looks like she’s on a site-seeing tour in a little Italian village somewhere in Florence or Tuscany. Gorgeous background. A different pose could have added a bit more class to the overall shot. Your editing is consistently improving, just a bit near her forearm and around her left hip needs a bit of touching up. I use the cloning tool after I’ve merged but not flattened the shot and that really helps disperse the white glow we sometimes get around our models.

Avery
Comments: I think that Tiffany looks so cute and sophisticated. I think that you accessorized nicely. I love the dress, though it's maybe a tiny bit on the short side for a sophisticated look. The shoe color and material seems a little off for the rest of the outfit. I think that the setting fits her look quite nicely. I will say that proportions are kind of off. She looks way too tall for the tables and chairs. There are a few spots around her elbows that could have been blended better, but I don't see many jagged edges. Tiffany looks very nice !

Anna
You look really pretty here Tiffany, I love your dress and hair and I really like her smiling. I love the jewellery you added! I'm not sure if the bag is meant to be silver but it looks white to me. Your proportions are slightly off, Tiffany looks very tall! The background is a bit bad quality too. But I do think you did a really great job and Tiffany definitely looks sophisticated and elegant!


Movotti with Diva 
Kallie
She looks ready to take on the horses and is dressed to impress with an edge. Diva fits in beautifully with the classy style, but she may have looked even classier without the leather jacket in her specific setting. (Must have been a chilly day). The hat, champagne all fit well and suited your background. It even looks like there is a race track behind the hedge or bushes. Diva would make any woman envious at the races. I like her pose, makes her look elegant and feminine. Even with an in-game shot, you can smooth her outline by using a small clone brush or blur brush which reduces those serrated edges we see.

Avery
This is really well done and Diva looks so classy. Good thinking to put her in wedges for an outdoor setting! She looks very sophisticated. I feel that the background could have been chosen just a little better. In the picture that you submitted for judging, she just looks like she's standing in a backyard. The one under spoilers would have been a little better because you can see that she is in some kind of outdoor gathering, but I was thinking more like a wedding than a race.

Anna
Diva looks beautiful. I love her pose and her styling though I think I would have preferred her without the leather jacket. I think just the dress would have been fine. I really like that you added a hat on her, it makes it that bit more sophisticated! I really like the background even though it is pretty simple but I think it works well.


Gege with Haeju
Kallie
 This shot was wonderful, full of elegance and has almost an classy wicked queen look about her and the background reflects this look also. She reminded me of Cruella Deville or the “witch” from Once upon a time. The addition of the feather shawl added a lot of character and class to this shot. That can’t have been easy to cut out. Love her hairstyle and she’s wearing just the right amount of jewellery. Haeju’s makeup is glorious and she has an attractive and distinctive look about her.

Avery
I love this entry so much! It was definitely creative and classy. Haeju looks like a supermodel. I absolutely love her hair and that lipstick is amazing. The feather shrug classes up the dress. Without it the shrug it might have been a little too revealing. I like the background and the shrug almost looks like she has wings. Your editing is nice, however, it doesn't quite look like her feet are actually on the ground. Also, I think those shoes are by Madlen? I love the shoes, but they make it look like she has really long toes or her feet would be really uncomfortable. With those type of shoes, I usually take the material and draw in more shoe a little over the toes so it looks more natural. Great job, this is definitely one of my faves this round!

Anna
Haeju looks so stunning, I love the way that dress fits her. I really like the feathers you added to her outfit, it looks very classy. She looks so good in black. The background makes her stand out even more, I love it! I did notice some cloning was off on the floor behind her though but it's not that noticeable. Very good edit!!


xjojox with Taruna
Kallie
Taruna’s cocktail dress looks gorgeous. Love the unique shoes and her pose fits nicely with this round.  The background was perfect for this outfit, but a bit blurry and didn’t really match the crisp finish you gave to Taruna. A bag or hat was part of the brief which you didn’t have, but the gloves look gorgeous. The lighting is lovely and gives her a soft, feminine look. Glad things are settling with your move, I’m amazed you even got an entry in and I’ve no doubt you’ll make up for it in the next round.

Avery
 I really love this; it's very cute and classy. The dress is so adorable and I love the shoes. The accessories are fantastic! I know you did have much time, so it looks very good for a quick edit. Even though I love the accessories you chose, you didn't meet the requirement of at least a hat or a bag. The dress is very classy, but it seems more junior than sophisticated. The background is a bit blurry, but like you said, you didn't have much time before your move. Amazing entry over all!

Anna
Taruna looks so lovely here, This is my favourite this round but I wish you had added a hat or bag. I really love her styling she looks so pretty. And that pose is great! Though I do think the whole picture looks very prom like. I think maybe it could have been a bit classier!


Lovegab with Ariel
Kallie
There is a classy appeal of the outfit you chose for this round. Ariel did remind me of a sophisticated gangster. You had the outfit, the jewellery, and hat and bag all of which worked well together well. Her hair looks glossy and gorgeous. Ariel’s makeup and your application of it looks great! The only thing and we’ve already discussed this, that let you down was the background and blood scattered around. If ever you are not sure or clear on the round brief, don’t hesitate to ask me or any of the others, we all like to help.

Avery
I really like the old school gangster theme you have going on here. I love that jacket and the boots look awesome, but I think combining them together takes away from the classy appeal a little bit. Maybe some shorter boots or some nice pumps would have been better for this competition's theme. I think that you were very creative with your concept, though. The background is just a little too busy with the oddly placed neon signs, but I think an alley suits your genre. The picture quality is overall just a little but blurry and it's hard to see details. This is a great entry and I can't wait to see what you come up with next round.

Anna
I know you didn't have time to change your entry. I do think the blood everywhere takes away the class of her outfit, I think she looks like a thief who has just killed someone with all the bags full of money. I don't really like the background much either. You did stick to the brief for the outfit and accessory though so good job on that.


TexasTwangTonya with Chantel
Kallie
Chantel oozes sophistication and reminds me of one of those curvy bombshells in Marilyn Monroe’s time. She has just the right amount of jewellery and her makeup looks gorgeous. Not sure what is showing through her bodice, however. If it is what I think, that can reduce the classiness a touch. Love the hat. It complements the outfit beautifully. Even the colour of the background takes you back in time and fits in nicely with your overall shot. 

Avery
Chantel is very pretty in this picture! I love the dress and accessories. I think that maybe you were trying to go for a sophisticated Goth type of look? I think a background with Gothic architecture would have been better suited for this outfit. The Roman style columns remind me of Italy and so it kind of makes it look like she's dressed for a funeral. Chantel does look classy, but I'm not sure what's going on with the nail polish. It kind of looks chipped. Your editing is pretty good, but there are a few blurry spots like on her right hand. Very nice, Tonya!

Anna
I love this! Chantel looks so elegant in that dress, it's beautiful. I love the hat with it too, it goes so well. Good job! I did notice that the background is black and white but Chantel is in colour though, it still looks pretty nice though, also watch out for your smudging, I noticed part of her hand is a bit blurry. 


Lisabee with Aspen
Kallie
You ticked nearly all the boxes for me this round. Aspen shows classy appeal and sophistication. The black jacket is a little “rock chic” but it works with this outfit. The pose is perfect for this elegant lady and I’d love to know where you got that pose from. You also went the extra mile and added sunglasses along with the required accessories for this round, in which you chose just the right amount for Aspen’s elegant appearance. The in-game background was clear and fitted well with the city in the background. Next time try going around the outline with a fine clone or blur brush. It really helps with the glow around the outline. That is the only thing that needed pointing out this round.

Avery
I really love the accessories with this. The leather jacket is really nice, too. You did a really good job meeting the brief requirements. Aspen is so pretty ! The only things that I can comment on are that there seems to be a little too much negative space with the floor of the background. Maybe adding some tables and chairs would have helped. She does look like a city girl, though. I love her outfit, but it's a little on the casual side. Also, she has jagged lines around her silhouette. Going over the outline of your model with the smudge tool at 2-4% opacity can really help with this. Awesome job!

Anna
Aspen looks really good here. You stuck to the brief with the colours and accessories, I love that you added a hat and a bag. I do think the jacket and sunglasses takes away some of the class though, also the same with the pose. I think the background needed more to it also, there is a lot of grey space, you did a really awesome job though!!


JennaCatz with Peyton
Kallie
You and Jojo did well to get your entries in under the circumstances. Peyton’s outfit is stylish and I like the gold belt, it sets off this particular dress nicely. The brief asked for a bag or hat, which you didn’t have but as I said with the move you were lucky to get anything in. I am sure you’ll make up for that next round. Peyton’s makeup, and hairstyle look perfect. I love those big blue eyes and you really made them stand out beautifully. The composition of the shot is great with the light sky behind her.

Avery
Comments: Peyton looks very lovely. I love her hair and she looks like she's having a good time. The dress is very cute, but maybe some more accessories could have made it a little more sophisticated. Also, the brief called for at least a hat or bag. The background doesn't really seem to match. She looks more like she would be at a party. Your editing skills are very good, I don't see any problem areas. Very well done!

Anna
What a pretty lady Peyton is! I really like her dress and her hair is lovely. The pose is really nice too! I'm not too fond of the background with the white blobs on the floor and the wall cracking at the back looks like it's an old abandoned building which I don't think is very elegant. Maybe if you had cropped it a bit it would have been fine. I also noticed you didn't add any required accessories which is a shame! 


Ashlenn with Leslie
Kallie
I am very glad you made it for this round. Leslie looks fabulous all in black. A bit risqué for the classy look, but everything works well in this shot. You went with extra accessories but it doesn’t look overdone so great job there. Just a couple of things. I assume that is a jacket over her shoulder. It blends into the dress a bit much, and it’s tricky to distinguish one from the other. Perhaps brightening it up would contrast it a little more. That, of course could have something to do with the image gallery you upload it to, as I know they tend to compress shots and that makes them darker. The other thing is for her classy appeal perhaps a more elegant background could have improved this overall shot. Proportion looks a bit off. Leslie looks too big for the telephone booth.

Avery
Comments: This outfit is really cute. I love those shoes ! I think you nailed the requirement with the accessories. I feel that the dress is a little too short and revealing for the sophisticated theme of the comp. If you had her wear the jacket over both shoulders, I think it would have looked more sophisticated, as it would have toned down the amount of bare skin. The background doesn't really seem to go with her look and it's a bit blurry. Also she is very tall, or anyone would have to duck to get inside the telephone booth. Her makeup and accessories are very cute nice entry !

Anna
I really like that that you added both a hat and a bag! I love the outfit but I don't think it’s very classy or sophisticated with that amount of cleavage shown. Leslie's hairstyle and make up look lovely. I like the red pop on her lips. I noticed a few jagged edges around her and very blurry in some parts, she also looks very tall. The back seems like it needs to have more saturation, it seems very dull against her. Very nice entry!!
