Welcome our Top 10!

Dear reader of CMA,

can you believe that after this task only half of the contestants that started their first year at CMA will still be a part of it? Thank you for following the blog and commenting so nicely! And now let's take a look at the entries from this week!

"You still have to work on your graphic abilities but your pose is stunning. I'm not sure about the combination of the bikini and the ball but well done nevertheless." 
"  I like your Pose, your Outfit & your Hair but it all look a little bit to hard I prefer it a little softer"
"The pose is really good, and I love the bikini! Of course you shoulf improve your graphic skills, for that search for videos and xheck out the techniques of other graphic designers, that willl help you."
Overall: 2/1/0*


" Love the pose and the graphic! I can see you have some experience on graphics and that helped you a lot. I'm not a big fan of the bikini, but that might be just me. I think the hair looks a little bit with bad resolution, maybe you should try to fix that out :)"
"I really like the overall feeling of your graphic, it reminds me of summer and the background is really nice aswell as your pose. The only thing I dislike about your graphic is the bikini, I neither like the cut nor the colour scheme. Task for you: Think about your styling a little more, your graphic abilities are one of the best."
"I like the Pose & your Hair but I don´t like your Bikini it´s not my cup of tea"
Overall: 3/0/0 Congrats!

"wow your Pose & your Hair are great the Bikini too"
" wow I love this picture, it took so much my atention! Great colors, I really like the bikini and your graphic skills improved a lot, I love the skin! I think you should try to do a better hair, for that check out some techniques of graphic designers and try to do it like they do!"
"Your entry is really attention-catching! It's different from the other entries because of its pose and standing out of the crowd is probably the best you one can do! Try to cut out the forms of the bikini more properly though."
Overall: 3/0/0 Congrats!

"Your entry is really a step forward compared to your last task. But it is still missing the wow factor. The graphic is rather boring and I don't remember it after looking through many entries."
"sry I don´t like your Hair & Outfit but your Pose is ok it´s very shame that you don´t have a nice Background"
"Well it's ok. I'm not a big fan of the bikini, you should add a background, and try to do a better pose. You should also use some more bright colors, because when i look at this picture it doesn't remind me of summer."
Overall: 0/1/2

"The proposite of this task was for you to improve your graphic skills, and  you just used a graphic from another dress up siite and designed a bit of the bikini. I quite don't even know what to comment and tell u to improve because it was not made by you"
"I really like your idea of wearing more than just a bikini and the outfit is fashionable. What you have to work on now are your graphical skills. If you haven't got it yet, download GIMP for free and add more shading to your clothes, they look to plain at the moment.But after reading Joao's comment I realized that the pose wasn't made by you. I asked every contestant to give credit to websites they have taken images from. But you haven't and I can't give you a yes for cheating."
"Your Idea is nice but your implementation not. It looks so painted but you look very cute"
Overall: 1/0/2

"Sry I don´t like your Pose, Hair & Outfit. And it is really shame you don´t use a background"
"You should draw your own pose, this pose is not creative and it's boring. I like the bikini, but when I look at this picture it doesn't remind of summer, maybe because you didn't add a background (background is always important)."
"You're really creative (like your outfit) but you really, really, really have to improve your graphic skills. What to improve: a more exciting pose, a nice background that makes the image less boring, hair style. The shading of the clothes is ok/good for your level of graphis abilities. Give your best!"
Overall: 0/2/1

"Now that's really an improvement compared to your last few tasks! You look like a real model, your outfit is fashionable and your pose is nice, too. Keep improving your graphic abilities by creating new layers for the shading (some in black, some in white, with a low opacity) and stop using the dodge/burn tool."
"Your Pose, Outfit & Hair are very nice. I like that you used a bit of jewelry but not too much"
" Simple bikini, nice pose. I can see your trying to imporve your graphic skiils. You should have drown your own hair. I like that you added a background, because I can see summer in here! Next time try to draw your own hair, and practise a lot!"
Overall: 3/0/0 Congrats!

" Fierce pose, I like the sunset and the idea of it, it's also sexy! I just think you should work on the skin a little bit more. And the bikini is quite simple."
"Again someone who really improved! I can't believe this really is your entry if I remind myself of the last one :D The background is really nice, the pose is a little bit too sexy and you should still work on the skin and clothes shading to make it more accurate."
"When I see this Graphic and your first Graphic there is a very big Change (positive :)) I like your Hair & Pose but I don´t like that your Doll looks a little bit chubby."
Overall: 3/0/0 Congrats!

or the bonus version (which wasn't judged)

"Manda I only can say Wow Wow & Wow your Task is amazing everything is perfect & I love (& prefers) your bonus Graphic  the mermaid version is so fantastic :)"
" I'm speechless! It is so so so great Manda!!! You're getting better week by week! This is creative at the highest level! Love the skin shading, the bikini is so great and original! The hair is amazing! Everything fits together! Keep the great work Manda and you'll get far!"
"Stunning entry! It's close to perfection, standing out of the crowd and just gorgeous. I spend some time looking for something that you can improve (constrctive criticism and so on) and the only thing I found were the toes :P"
Overall: 3/0/0 Congrats!

"The monokini is definitely not my style and your two-coloured hair (isn't it from i-dressup?!) would look nicer in a single colour. But what I really like is that your doll is standing in the water. My advice: Keep it simple! Sorry for the harsh criticism, overall your entry was realy good ^.~"
"wow your graphic is really nice I like your Outfit , Hair & Pose. Your Idea to stand in the water is very good :). I only don´t like your Eyebrow Piercing."
"I can see you've improved! I like the bikini it has a good color and also the necklace! Your face here is so good! I just think the pose is a bit boring, try to do something more fierce, it will work well with you!"
Overall: 3/0/0 Congrats!

"Very great! I love the clothes and the hair! Your face fits here really well and I can see summer here! I just think you need to practice your skin shading!"
"Well done! Your outfit is put together very well, maybe another bikini colour would have looked even better. Try to work on your skin shading, maybe add another highlighting layer. And try to use your model's face and not another mouth."
"wow your Outfit Pose & Hair are amazing you look really great. I like that you used a bit of jewelry :) Only a little bit more Make up would be nice"
Overall: 3/0/0 Congrats!

There are definitely things that are much more important than a model comp. Health is one of them.
In the name of all the judges and all the contestants I wish you the best to get better soon. Thanks for being a contestant! :*

"Your Pose is nice but I don´t like your Bikini the color & pattern is awful. And I don´t like your Hair other one would be better"
"Nice pose. Your face doesn't work very well here. Nice bikini. Add some layers to the skin shading and work on the hair! "
"This is a huge step backwards from your last entry. The bikini pattern is awful since it has got nothing to do with summer at all. You also have to improve your hair and skin shading by adding more highlighting layers. At least the pose and the background are nice."
Overall: 0/3/0

What an exciting week with so many surprising contestants and tough competition.
Who will make it in the Top 3? Who will have to leave us apart from cooldeer123/Tânia?
Before you'll get an answer to these questions, let me introduce you our new judge:
Welcome on CMA!
Read more about Kirsten here.

Top 3
We received many good entries this week and many of you got a 3/0/0 voting.
Nonetheless we decided for our Top 3 easily.
The second place is shared by two girls which are
mangunmeetan and SuperMiaStar, Congratulations!

And without any doubt, the best entry this week was created by
Congratulations, you're the winner of this amazing prize which will hopefully keep reminding you of this task ^.~

Bottom 3
Now to the less pleasant part. This task will narrow you down to the Top 10 which means that 2 girls apart from Tânia will be leaving.

emmahunt4, Lizzy1414, Aeon_Flux_96, I'm sorry to tell you that you're in the bottom 3.
Only one of you will still have the chance to win various modeling contracts, interviews, clothes and shiny stardollars. Aeon_Flux_96, you won't because of the fact that you didn't do a graphic on your own. Thank you for participating nevertheless.

Hilmy or Lizzy, who'll have to leave us? You both had very weak graphics this week. But we see a higher potential in one of you, therefore we'll give this person a second and last try.
Hilmy (emmahunt4), give your best next week and surprise us by 200%! You're in the Top 10!
Thanks for participating and all the best for your further modeling career, Lizzy1414.

Ladies and gentleman, this are our Top 10!

Stay tuned for the next task!

xoxo Cathérine
