Oh my, this was stressful. But I'm pretty happy with it, I guess. Very nervous, but happy.

I wanted to do something relating to the story more so, but I couldn't think of anything... I'm not very good at illustrating things (though I'd like to be one day). I hate that I didn't get Tadashi or Sonia in there.

I hope everyone likes it, many panicky hours were put into it for sure, haha.

You shouldve gotten to be at least a finalist, you were totally robbed! This was one of the best!

Oh mi... how comes I've never heard of this contest óó? Ehr, well... I do now, at least.

You know, there are two things I love about your cover:
Firstly, it's the colors. The contrast between the grey-shaded characters and the background, full of light and night, works so well.
Secondly, I'm in love with how you made all of them look somewhere you can't see - except for Saito who's staring right at you. That look on his face is thrilling, really. BAall knowingMF Satio. Brilliant :D.

In case they didn't announce the winner yet - I wish you good luck. There are plenty of good and even better entries, but yours is definitly one of my favorites :)b.

This is a very solid work. Even without Tadashi, I think it works well as a cover, since cover images do not give away too much.

Awesome interpretations. I love everyone's expression and the way you translated their likenesses to your drawing style.

I agree, it was frustrating now knowing what Sonia looked like, but, at the same time, it made it free to interpretation. I guess you could do an alternate cover featuring Sonia, but this one is pretty strong. :)

Wow, you really captured the look of the different actors very well!
Don't worry about not getting the other characters in there. I think that would just make it too busy and cluttered.
I also like how you did the semi-impressionistic background in color and the rest in black and white. It goes well with the sense of dreams vs. reality.

The faces are wonderful; instantly recognizable as the actors with a style that makes it your own. The circles in the composition give it an interesting flair too.

Good luck! :D

I was very disappoint that I couldn't draw Eames for this though. He's pretty much amazing.

I think its perfect the way it is and indeed more dramatic !:)

I'm about 2/3 done w/ it but have about 3 days of family dinners...so I'm not sure if I'll physically have the time T_T (plus compared to all the entries its crap ^^; ...the idea is good, but my skills are just not good enough ^^;)

I really like this piece, although my only suggestion in order to make it even better, would be to touch up Saito's clothing because it's not quite as refined as the faces. other than that great use of colors and I really like the expressions
