I agree that elddonnemar's is hilarious (nice angle choice, too) and Rykka's is jaw-dropping, but I really gotta give props to Alisa as the one I'm most impressed with. Reason being is her color choices completely set the tone for absolutely every single guest artist's entry, mine included. I mean, compare what we did with Jaimie's entries. His aren't actually sepia-toned
. Instead, he used an often-intense color as a highlight, almost monochromatically, and usually with bold, heavy strokes. And sometimes it was just a flat, sharp, spot-coloring.
When it came time for most of us to do the colors, it's clear that we weren't following Jaimie; we were following Alisa. Not even intentionally, either. Hell, I didn't even realize it until I reread the updates after
my post. By being first, she ended up creating the subconscious blueprint for how Summer Update Guest Art should look. In fact, only Pat Jacobs' contribution strayed outside the muted Red-Yellow/Brown range (an unwittingly brave move on his part).
But just imagine it, Alisa: had you chosen a really hideous color scheme for your first image, everyone's entry would've sucked. And it would be all your fault.
