~~My Final Thanks~~

First off, I want to say that this was very difficult because I got so many AMAZING entries for this contest. I really can't thank you enough for all of you that entered and attempted my character Ike. It meant so much seeing such love given to him for his 10 year anniversary,  even if it was for the money/points. I saw allot of effort and love put into into these amazing entries and they all brought a smile to my face. So once again I take this moment to thank you all for your hard work and effort.

That said I had to make up a ranking of how each image impacted me. I tried to base it on the Art Style, Coloring, Creativity, Background, Amount of characters, character interaction...but overall a big factor is the impact the image had on me, along with the theme of Ike/Marisa's character. ((Marisa being the name Ike goes by as female))

However I did update the Prize List, so your going to see allot more prizes handed out then stated in the list before...I wish I could give more, but sadly I'm not made of money. But I felt this was the least I could do for all the amazing entries and takes on the character.

~~Final Note~~

@.@ Well...I think that all of them. I hope I did not miss anyone.

Now in regarding to payment, be sure to comment or note me how you prefer to get your reward be it by Pay Pal or DeviantART Points.

IMPORTANT All I ask is you give me time to pay everyone off, as I added ALLOT more just give me time to pay off everyone little each day. I promise everyone will get their reward. I'll be sure I mark those whom gotten there reward, so I don't miss anyone. My poor Wallet going to have a massive burning whole in the middle of it.
But I really wanted to thank you all for the amazing work and effort you put into the entries you shared. I tried to make sure everyone got something...but sadly I'm not rich. Still I hope you all had fun in taking part in celebrating Ike's 10 year Anniversary.

Once again Thank you so much for the support! Thanks for making the event Awesome!
