    As I suspected, none of the anime themed skins won. In fact, the only ones that used existing IPs and still won were Doodles and Godot, both of which were extremely creative.

    I'm actually a bit surprised that I won. When I entered, I didn't realize how much competition there'd be, and by the end I had downloaded about 23 that I thought were better than mine.

    I'm amazed that I won! Thanks, I never won anything in my life. (I know that sounded too cliche but its true...) My fave of the winning skins is "edgeboy classic" by Jimbob7 & "Corkboard" by Covarr. Congrats to the other winners and Thank You to GBAtemp!//

    Congrats to all the winners. [​IMG]

    Just thought I'd share my judging process with people.

    My first run through of the 290+ (jeebus) entries was with the requirement of "Is this skin usable? Does the background make the text hard to read? Is this a functional skin a person would use?"

    My second run through was how original a skin was since we said originality would be more important than sheer skill. Was it something a person made from scratch? Perhaps anime/game themed but done by hand?

    My third run through was on how well the skin felt. If a skin was say...specifically Mario themed but had images of Kirby for example then it's not properly themed anymore. If it was space themed but had a cute bunny out of nowhere then it doesn't mesh properly any more. And so on.

    My forth run through was on how good a skin looked. At this point the skins left were few enough in number that I had to judge based on looks.

    My fifth run through was on whether or not I would personally use the skin. Incidentally this brought me to 31 skins left so deciding to leave out one last skin was a huge pain. >.>;;
