    Welcome to yet another promising season of Planet Cricket Graphics Maker Championship. All the seasons of the competition thus far went unexpectedly well and brought graphics makers of all ranges under one roof. We hope this season reaches new heights and is treated with the same passion and response like the previous ones.

    @Dipak

    Entry 1 (6/10) - I like the retro feel in the avatar and the colors complement the seriousness to the players face. Kind of overdone though

    Entry 2 (4/10) - A bit too much yellow in the avatar. Lighting needs to be improved.

    Entry 3 (8/10) - I like it. The text is blended well and the lighting is nice. Good job.

    Entry 4 (6/10) - The effects are quite good. The urn and the text aren't blended well with the BG. Perhaps it would be better of without it. Nice try though.

    Entry 5 (3/10) - It's too simple. If it's one of your first artworks, well done. Follow a few tuts.

    Entry 6 (9/10) - I love it. Great stock selection. Lighting is perfect. Simple, yet brilliant. Well done.

    Entry 7 (5.5/10) - The text looks good, but the ava is overdone. Too sharp as well.

    Entry 8 (7.5/10) - Great use of colors. Looks good.

    Entry 9 (7/10) - I love double render avas and this is a really good try, given double render avas are really difficult to pull off. The main ava's stock could be better. The chef hat spoils it a bit though.

    Entry 10 (5/10) - Looks a bit overdone. Also text could look good in such an ava.

    Entry 11 (7/10) - The lighting is really good. Good contrast, though I think the face is too bright. Good use of the texture (if it is a texture) The Overton text is not that good, a better text could have easily got a 9.


    @PresidentEvil

    Entry 1 (7/10) - Classy. Nice use of effects to bring in that retro feel. Elements(the base stock) could've been made more visible. Nice try...

    Entry 2 (3.5/10) - Not that great ava tbh. Nothing much done apart from basic tuning of effects etc... Need improvements.

    Entry 3 (6/10) - Text is syncing well with the effects and the base. Looks cool...

    Entry 4 (8/10) - The text is perfect for the stock used with a good set of effects and color. Kind of satisfying to the eyes...

    Entry 5 (3/10) - Nothing done much. Text looks good for the plain theme you've used for the ava. Follow some tuts for better effects.

    Entry 6 (9/10) - That is what I call a perfect mix of everything. Good stock selection and placement, balanced effects, awesome text and presentation. KIU.

    Entry 7 (6.5/10) - Interesting. Well blended text and effects but poor utilisation of stock or could've opted for a more visible ava.

    Entry 8 (7/10) - Well played with the effects and color. Perhaps a text would've made it more better ava.

    Entry 9 (7.5/10) - Good use of stock by blending the render of Cook with appropriate colors. Lacks something and I don't know what. But surely, something seems missing..

    Entry 10 (4/10) - Poor use of stock. A colored ava would've been better than the b&w ava. Looks like the sun is rising out of nowhere and is stationed behind Smith. It looks that way...

    Entry 11 (6/10) - A bit too much of effects. Maybe, the contrast is not a better option for a darker avas. Seems like a forceful ava with too much of doings..


    @Rebel2k17

    Entry 1 (5/10) - I like the stock used but overall ava looks rough and too sharp. Could have been better.

    Entry 2 (3/10) - When I saw an Ashes theme I was hoping the player to be in whites. Even if I ignore that this isn't something which appeals to me.

    Entry 3 (6/10) - I like it a bit. The text needs an effort to read it properly, too bright BG for the text. A bit more lighting on the face would have done wonders. The reddish BG right in the center is a distraction.

    Entry 4 (9/10) - This is neat and very easy on the eyes. I loved the text, especially that 244*. It is 'Alastair'. The two parts (Cook and the Urn) could have been blended better together. The blur thing doesn't always work well. Overall an impressive piece of work.

    Entry 5 (2/10) - It just seems you have pasted the render on a BG and nothing else. I see zero effects. Text is okay.

    Entry 6 (7/10) - Looks good. I wouldn't say very good. A different placement might have been better, I feel.

    Entry 7 (7/10) - Nice work. It seems a bit over burnt though.

    Entry 8 (8/10) - Simple and effective! Nice lighting and color used.

    Entry 9 (8/10) - The other render spoilt it tbh. Still a good one to get 8! I would love to see how it goes without the Cook at the front.

    Entry 10 (5/10) - I like what is done on the face. But overall looks empty. This needed text with the size of the canvas you have used.

    Entry 11 (10/10) - This is an ava I would want to use on a forum. I can't really find any flaw in this one. Neatly done and the text is very nice.


    @Samuels

    Entry 1 (7/10) - I like this idea but may be its done a tad too much. It is a great attempt.

    Entry 2 (3/10) - I am sorry but there is not much appeal in the avatar. Also, Ashes means white uniform.

    Entry 3 (5/10) - Too bright for my liking. Missed the text at first glance.

    Entry 4 (8/10) - This was so good but the urn and the text not merging with the BG ruined the beauty of this avvy. Excellent attempt.

    Entry 5 (2/10) - I do not see much effort there. You got work more on the effects. I suggest you to please follow the tutorials on the forums.

    Entry 6 (10/10) - Brilliant! Excellent stock selection and great lighting effects.

    Entry 7 (7/10) - The idea is good but maybe a different stock selection would have done it more good.

    Entry 8 (9/10) - Impressive. The icing on the cake would have been little lightning on the cap highligting the CA logo.

    Entry 9 (7/10) - Nice attempt but it would have been better off with one render.

    Entry 10 (5/10) - I am a fan of B/W pictures and avvys but this one is off. A better render selection and some smart use of lightning effects could have made this idea so good.

    Entry 11 (7/10) - The face is too bright. Font for 'Overton' could have been better.
