Notes from K'sariya: While it does get repetitive to do so when you’re curating a lot from the same artist, be sure to define some of your repeated catchphrases/buzzwords, like “dynamic”, for curators and artists who didn’t start at the beginning of the curation chain. Try to stick to more objective/artistic terms--contrast, depth, and movement are what I think you’re going for with “dynamic”, but wasn’t quite sure. Those are some alternatives.

When putting what they did right (and wrong, but I noticed you do this more frequently on what’s right), it’s also worth making a small note about how they did it right--which parts of light, color, etc. made something feel “dynamic”, or what exactly makes Audino’s eyes look so good, or what makes the simple background so effective in the work, or what makes the shading “good”. This kind of technique helps people (both the artist and people looking at curations/art!) see what elements work together to make something look right as opposed to having the feeling that something is off.

Your lower-scoring ones here are ones that gave really unspecific advice, or missed fairly salient points that should have been brought up by the curation. You can gimme a shout on any of these if you need more feedback. However, thanks for getting people their Pokemon/cash, and good job on your final rankings.

Notes from Velo:
Most of the lower-scoring curations here were Fenris curations; due to the sheer volume of concise curations on simple Pokemon drawings from the same person I’m not too worried. You caught most of the things that needed catching, you just didn’t have much to say much of the time (though, as mentioned above, this is for understandable reasons).

VeloJello - $13,500 ($9,000 to legend tracker)
Oribhel's Snover - $5,000 *
Fenris' Kricketot - $4,000 *

Notes from K'sariya:
Lovely concise on the Snover, hitting just the right spots that explain what makes something work or not work. Kricketot was also succint and to the point. Good eye and a good job!

Axion - $6,000 ($4,000 to legend tracker)
W32Coravint’s Klink - $4,000
Notes from K'sariya:
This was a really cool curation to read, and I’m glad you were able to take it; you give good, relevant technical suggestions and valuable insight that would have been harder for the rest of us to offer! Good stuff.

Fenris - $13,500 ($13,500 to legend tracker)
Oribhel's Bounsweet - $3,000 (see notes)
Oribhel's Bidoof - $2,500 (see notes)
Oribhel's Sentret - $2,500 (see notes)
Oribhel's Magikarp - $2,000
Oribhel's Corphish - $3,500

Notes from K'sariya:
Overall, some of the same critiques given to Gold can be applied to yours. Giving some brief whys/hows when mentioning what was good and what wasn’t goes a long way for all audiences. Naturally, you can keep it concise, but at least mentioning why those areas work/how some areas can improved gives the artist and those looking at curations direction to work from.
