The judges commented that they liked the vivid colors of the background, how the light was drawn and interacts with everything in the landscape, and how Gardevoir feels warm and calm while bathing in the sunlight.

The runner-up was Sato Narumi’s Eevee illustration. The judges liked how it was a “slice of life” scene and how Eevee’s ear gets caught by the fence.
