Here are the 25 finalists of our illustration contest!  I'm leaving it up to you guys to decide which illustrations are your favourites and I will take that into consideration when I pick the final winners.  There is a possibility that I will pick two winners because there are two different types of illustrations I need done for the book!  So vote for your favourite using the comments section and keep in mind that the number of the illustration is UNDER the picture, not over it.  Simply write the number of your favourite and if you like, tell me why you like it!  You can only vote once and of course you can vote for yourself :)

I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who entered - you are all amazing and I appreciate all the work you guys did so so much.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Stay Stylish!
xoxo
Anna

  2. Well, I have to say I really like number 4, specially because I can visualize it in vector art and I think it's absolutely cute! :)
    Great competition Anna!

  4. 20 or 24. it's really artistic :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. I think 20 captured your essence more than anyone. I also liked 4.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I like 4, 5, 18 and 21 (:

    ReplyDelete
  7. I think number 18 is my favourite because it contains plenty of detailing and shadowing, so I think it would show off clothes/body shapes really well.

    Number 4 is a very close 2nd, because, as the previous person said, it's just really cute.

    But, I do think they all look great...well done to the people who drew/made them. :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. I like some of them but I really like number 23, quite cute and clean :-)

    ReplyDelete
  9. 5, 18 and 21.... the three that stick out and look real

    ReplyDelete
  10. 2 is my favourite because it's neat and bold. though i have to say, 19 and 20 really look like you! xx

    ReplyDelete
  11. I would say, definitely number 20, Anna, the resemblance is awesome, I think it is the one that best describes you three!
    XX

    ReplyDelete
  12. I like 4 the most (and then 18) :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think they are all excellent but number 4 is probably my favourite. You have a hard job choosing!

    ReplyDelete
  14. 18, 19 and 23 were the cutest ones!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Number 5! Cause it look like you both in real!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. 2 4 5 18 :)) all the pictures are fabulous but these four are the best in my opinion! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. They are all good, but I like number 4 and number 21 :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. i'd say number 2 or number 18

    ReplyDelete
  19. a lot of them are awesome but definitely #5

    ReplyDelete
  20. What a lovely idea,to pick a picture made by one of your "readers/followers/fans/friends"!!!i must say i love number 19!!it depicts you all in a humorous,sweet way...and its a bit "childish" in a good way:) best of luck in choosing one,its going to be tough!!x

    ReplyDelete
  21. Number 23 please. Great attention to detail. A bit of humour and I think it captures an expression you use a lot Anna.
    I think they are all amazing, though!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I like 5 and 18 :-) looks interesting and professional.

    ReplyDelete
  23. i like 4 and five but five catches my eye more!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. i like 2 and 5

    ReplyDelete
  25. In some pictures the dog have two eyes.

    Albi has only one eye!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. NUMBER 20

    that one is really nice it looks a bit like a fashion drawing, like a sketch.

    ReplyDelete
  27. i like no.23. but i would like no.4 better if it can be well coloured.

    ReplyDelete
  28. 20 and 21 maybe. I'm not fond of none of the others. I don't know why, I just never picture you and johnatan as any of the characters on the illustration. I'm sure many would agree with me.

  29. 18, 20 and 21 i think really look like you both and are really good drawings :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  30. wow gorgeous drawings..I really couldn't decide: 2,4,13,18,21 are great! 2 seems a little more like these fashion design sketches

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like number 2 the best... it doesn't make you like like 13 year old children and it more realistic with shading (which will help show off the clothes in the book).

    Second pick was 18, again because it was more realistic.

    I looooooved 2 though!

    ReplyDelete
  32. 5 is great if you want more of a computer graphic look but 18 is great if you want the illustrations to look more organically drawn :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi Anna! Wow, these are some amazing artists!! All of them are great but the ones that really stand out to me are #2,5,6,11,18&20. I think the art work really depends on the style of book you have written. #5 & #20 stand out to me and might could possibilily be good with any style of book. Hope this helps! xoxo, Liz

    ReplyDelete
  34. wow they are all awesome!!
    I love so many!! 2,5 13, 20, 21, & 24! I cant decide.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Totally love 18 and 2. Both are really fun!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like 4 and 5 the best. Good luck with the book.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I like 4,5 and 18 the best!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Either.... 13, 20 or 21:) i know u only said one but they are all soo good!

    ReplyDelete
  39. personally i think for a book no. 5 would be best, but i love no. 18 too

    ReplyDelete
  40. 5, 14 and 18 are the best, but 11 is really funny! xx

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well, if I were you I would pick nr.18. It encompasses all the different styles: it's cartoonish but very polished and also quite realistic. There are very good portraits of you three (nr.2 and 20 are my second and third choice), but since you are looking for illustrations for body shapes and styles, in my opinion nr.18 has it all. Best of luck and take care.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Picking between Four and Twenty were really difficult because, Four Really resembled the type of drawing you were looking for, but Twenty really captured your character. Final Decision: Entry Number 20!

    ReplyDelete
  43. number four is the best in my opinion!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I would say I like 20 the best.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Definitely number 18. It amazing! It shows so much detail x x x

    ReplyDelete
  46. All are amazing entries, but because i have to choose i'd say #4 and #20 are amazing !!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. 4 and 20 are my favourites!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love 22, it looks very fashion-y! a bit like the stila make up drawings!

    ReplyDelete
  49. 20 or 21 i think are the best

    ReplyDelete
  50. 20 or 21 i think are the best

    ReplyDelete
  51. for some reason nobody voted for my picture :D .... it's NR 1 ... oh well... at least it's the first one ;D .....

    ReplyDelete
  52. my favorites are 5.7.13.18. but all of them are so good

    ReplyDelete
  53. I prefer hand drawn better than computer made so I'd say 7 is the best.
    They're all really good though. Well done everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Number 4. It's the only one where you two are looking at each other- in love!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hey Anna! You got some great entries sent for this! I particularly loved # 4 & # 5. Absolutely flawless!

    ReplyDelete
  56. #5, #14, #18. I think these have similar styles and would fit well if you used a couple of them, as you mentioned before.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Good job everyone!! :D

    Vote goes to:
    20. It looks creative/artistic to me, I definitely like the faces best, and esp. Anna's eyes are so lively and intense, glowy!

    ReplyDelete
  58. They are all so great! But I'm loving 4, 5 and 21! :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I would say 23 is the best. It's funny and suits the style you require. =)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I vote for number 4!
    Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I like 2!

    # 2 would be great in your book to show the body proportions

    ReplyDelete
  62. i like 2!!!

  63. 5 is really fun, but I also love the drawing style of 20!

    ReplyDelete
  64. 1,2,3,4 and 6 are my faves!
    All very different, but all fabulous!

    No.6 is probably the most..hmm I dno..edgy? lol! but no.4 is really good too!

    ReplyDelete
  66. 2 is the best! I think the style would really look good in your book. I love the way the folds and the wrinkles in the clothes were drawn. i like the sketchy look and of course the faces are at the same time realistic and enchanting. (Specially the eyes)

    ReplyDelete
  67. 2 or 11, if i had to choose one it would be 2 i love it!
    I'm looking forward to reading the book! ♥

    ReplyDelete
  68. Artistically, number 20 is strongest.

    ReplyDelete
  69. This must be so hard for you, they're all really good! :) I'd say either 2, 4, 5 or 18 xxx

    ReplyDelete
  70. 5 or 11. More modern and as a graphic designer I think that's more appealing. Hope that helps!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I like 17, 20 and 21 best :)
    xx

    ReplyDelete
  72. I think number 23 is the most fitting :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Number 4. :) I love the cartoon style of drawing. :)

    Most of them are strong though- so it's hard to point a specific one out! 5, 6, 21 and 24 are also really good. :)

  75. I think number 5 is the best!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I like #4 the best! It looks very professional, but cute too :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. They are very good! But to choose one for your book I think most of them are too sketchy. Number 23 is bright, colorful and professional. Good luck on your book!

    ReplyDelete
  78. 23 is by far the best choice for the book! It's so fun and cartoon style works perfectly!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I like 23, look at Annas figure!

    ReplyDelete
  80. really like #4 and 5 both are really cute.

    ReplyDelete
  81. 2, 5, 18,24 are the best ones

    ReplyDelete
  82. They are all pretty cool in their own way, but I think that 23 has the edge! Very cool style! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  83. I like #2, 4 and 21 the best.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Loving the playfulness of #23. Fun, cute and the dog looks adorable!! :) Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I liked # 4 and 5 best...but if I had to choose I think I would pick #5.

    ReplyDelete
  86. i like 2, 18mini and 20
    the best, great illustrations!

    ReplyDelete
  87. 18
    simply because i think it's the best one :) i think it portrays you and your future hubby the best

    ReplyDelete
  88. I love 2, 4, 5, & 20, but I think for your book, 4 or 5 would work best. Fabulous job by everyone though!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. 23 is the BEST BEST BEST!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I love 4 and 18 the most!! Everyone did an AMAZING job :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  91. They are all great! 5 is my absolute favorite! It's modern and looks just like you!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I like number 5, 18 and 23!!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. My favourites are 2, 4 and 20. I wish I could draw like that! ;)
    <3

    ReplyDelete
  94. This was a tough choice 'cuz three of them really stood out to me. But if I had to pick just one, I absolutely love #18. It is drawn well in two great styles (which makes me believe the illustrator has the skill to give you a variety of pics) and it has personalities.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Its just to hard to choose!!Im going to choose number 18,because I like the way they included Jonathons tatoos and the way Anna is wearing something her style like with the chunky accessories!!I would also like to vote on number 4 because I love the expressions on Anna and Jonathons faces and I like the way they put Albi in Annas bag and what Anna is wearing. I love number 21 to because of the colours used. lastly I want to vote on number 12 because it is nice and colourful!

    ReplyDelete
  96. i love number 4 and 18! :)

    ReplyDelete
  97. Number 11 is my favorite!

    I think that this illustration is cute and shows a great resemblance of Jonathan, Anna and Albi in a modern and appealing way.

    ReplyDelete

  99. I love illustration #11...

    it would complement your written text without being overpowering as an illustration. Very clean-cut graphic which captures the fun personality essence of Anna, Jonathan, and Albi :)

    ReplyDelete
  100. Go with 5. it looks the most professional and since you ARE publishing a BOOK...it would probably be best if you went with something that artistically looked the most professional, not just something cutesy.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Number 23 has something special. 23!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Number five for the likeness and the professionalism.x

    ReplyDelete
  103. I liked number 4. I think this would be the cute and sassy for a book about fashion. Number 2 is a nice. I would kind of stay away from any drawings that are too realistic (like number 5). Though they are technically very good!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I like 4 the best. very professional and has a likeness to you, but not over the top literal.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I vote for 21, because of the artist's accuracy in your facial features. It also seems very professional, and really quite beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  106. This comment has been removed by the author.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I love the 23, looks so cute, vote for 23

    ReplyDelete
  108. loved number 20... number 18 was closely behind!! they are all absolutely brilliant tho!!

    ReplyDelete
  109. 16 and 18 are more light, visualy talking. They have a je ne c'est quoi... chic french feeling, but very light and modern.
    4 and 8 are a little bit more young looking, very nice for under 16 years old. Girls love style books younger and younger now.
    You should think by yourself, because you are the one that write the book. Feel the one that illustrate your words best.
    But they are all amazing

    ReplyDelete
  110. 7 because nice use of shading, skilled artist

    ReplyDelete
  111. Votes for 23 because of its awkward style

    ReplyDelete
  112. 20, 21, 5 or 2. Number 20 and 21 look the most like you, but not Jonathan... Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Wow! This is very hard to pick!!! They are all amazing!!!
    My top picks would be:
    2, 4, 5 (wow!), 17, 18... I really love them all!!

    ReplyDelete
  114. 1,16,18,20,21

    I chose the illustrations that I felt looked most like you/I felt represented you well. :) Good luck choosing.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Definitely #4 ;-)
    so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  116. They are all wonderful!! I like 4, 5, 11 and 18 the best. I wish I could illustrate people that well!!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Oh wow so much creativity in these!
    #20 is my drawing but since i feel weird voting for myself im gonna go for #18, i think it would fit perfectly into your book!

    ReplyDelete
  118. i love 20's attention to detail! cute!

    ReplyDelete
  119. wow !!!! this contest looks amazing, and I really like the number 23. good luck choosing :)

    ReplyDelete
  120. No. 20 because I think it just really suits you guys and captures you, and it's also original and classy. But they are all awesome!!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Number 23 ist the best! :)

    ReplyDelete
  122. I like no.9 because its hand drawn and captures the contests aim

    ReplyDelete
  123. Number 9 is the best by far :)

    ReplyDelete
  124. I think no 9 is the best there, i think anna u look so stylish and it really captures the style diet

    ReplyDelete
  125. Number 9 is absolutely amazing and its hand drawn which makes it original

    ReplyDelete
  126. The drawings are all brilliant but not too mad about the computerised entries. Number 9 is the best in my opinion

    ReplyDelete
  127. Hmm...I think no. 9, it's so cute and it's one of the few thats hand drawn

    ReplyDelete
  128. i think no.9 definitely..its amazing. And its one of the few thats hand drawen x

    ReplyDelete
  129. Well done to all the entries. Its hard to chose just one, but no.9 is my favourite by far

    ReplyDelete
  130. I really like 5 and 6!
    6 has a really unique look, love it :D

    ReplyDelete
  131. My favorite one for over all likeness of the three of you is 7. 20 is a good attempt but the Jonathan lets it down.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I pick #5
    I am an art major in art school and to me this piece is cleanly done. It shows the clothing and the personalities of you guys very well.

    ReplyDelete
  133. 12 is really good and met to the cartoon style

    ReplyDelete

Please be nice...the world could use some positivity! :)
