Amanda Jones - Girl of the Year 2011 by Torqual3D Amanda Jones - Girl of the Year 2011 by Torqual3D
OK, so I will leave the poll open for a few more days in case anyone else wants to add their vote but, before I move on to other things, I thought I should congratulate Amanda on what seems like a convincing victory. Well done! My original and best character. She beat off a decent challenge from Penelope (some gentlemen prefer blondes after all) but I do think this result was not a huge surprise.

It's really flattering that so many people have taken Amanda to their hearts in my first year of production.

I think I can promise another year of hopefully great artwork (barring any life-changing circumstances) and I can assure you that Amanda will continue to play a large role:

- We'll be tying up the loose end of her escape from Professor Schnell in a text story written by a big fan. I may add a couple of supporting pictures. It would be a shame not to, I suppose.

- Also, we'll be seeing more of what happened next to Amanda after she was caught snooping around and finally escaped Sir Roger's Mansion. Amanda takes a job in the New York Public Library so that she can investigate the mysterious books locked in the basement. This gets her into all sorts of trouble, that I am just sure you're all going to enjoy.

Thanks for your votes, favourites and most importantly your comments which keep supporting my efforts to bring these girls and their stories to you.

Clearly not a reference book, since she's being checked out.


Where is the librarian?   I need to ask if I can borrow her "date her".

Great picture -- I continue to marvel at your integration of 3D characters with real-photo backgrounds.  It's a fine way to combine your talents in a way that makes the product greater than the mere sum of the parts.

It was also interesting to hear your thoughts about the girls and the fanbase, in comments above.  Is there any point in posting a response to a years-old poll?  Just in case...Penelope seems intriguing, but through the literature I have a better feel for Amanda.  Of the girls in the original posted poll, I'd go with Ms. Jones.  That said, it may be no secret that I am a big fan of the recently-introduced Hannah; I hope enough people share that to encourage more art and stories featuring her in times to come!

You're welcome and encouraged to comment and feed back on deviations of any age.

As I look back at this one, I see things that could be improved in the pose, the lighting and eyes, but never mind!

Sometimes I think about just ditching all the other characters and focusing purely on Amanda, but the others do give me a chance to do some things that I would not like to do with Amanda.  Also, to wear some different clothes.  And, it may surprise you, but I lean toward preferring blondes overall.

It's not likely we will see much more of Hannah after this summer season unless I can think of a project where she is needed and get myself fired up about it.  But the others have been neglected, especially Ciara and Penelope, who both have fans and also plots in waiting that would not be appropriate for Amanda.

I can see the value of your thoughts there -- Amanda seems to be the flagship character (hence "Amandaverse"), but it's hard to imagine her battling inhuman monsters, say, or toting a gun like Nicole.  Given your attention to detail with Amanda, I am a bit surprised to hear you favor the blondes a bit!  But you do all of them justice.

One very small request, based on the Adrianna Lima discussion-Amanda is pretty good at keeping her clothes on (the Cellar notwithstanding) but some out here would like to see a render of the Miracle Bra, or maybe a bikini....

I didn't know about your "favorite girl" poll
(maybe through lack of time spent with your site), but I'd have to say Amanda is my fave-I love your art, and am especially fond of really hot girls like Amanda who can't stay out of trouble. Great work on all your girls, but Amanda is the best!!

I voted for Chiaki! Real girls beat CG girls 5 days out of 7.

And I quite like this picture. Amanda has a quiet cuteness about her and the background...well, I just like libraries.

I voted for Lianne as well. In her story she was very much the innocent Damsel in Distress and I would personally love to see more of her. She's also a great looking model and I imagine her appeal was helped by a great first 'pose.'

She would make a great Damsel for Penelope to save. Sorry to hear you're frustrated with the character as you done a great job in generating interest in a character with almost no background other than a name and occupation.
