Fresh Faces Cycle 1 S-Rank Winner!!

This is it! The final announcement! The overall winner of ENTM Fresh Faces Cycle 1!

First off, I want to thank every model who stuck it out the last 6 weeks and graced us with their beautiful images. You made it very hard on the judges, and every single one of you should be very proud of the images that you created!

I always say this, and it’s true… it’s very hard to put yourself out there to be judged. The fact that you did makes every one of you brave, and amazing! I am honored to have hosted this cycle with all of you, and want to welcome you to the ENTM Family of models!

Also thank you to the ENTM and FFXIV Community. We couldn’t do this without your support, and the community votes! We appreciate every single one of you!

Now doing polls like this, always shows interesting data. So we would like to share the Judges Pick and Community Pick. Overall, these two models got the best scores from either the judges or by the community over the last six weeks!

The Community’s Top Pick is:

Forthyn S’yel

The Judge’s Top Pick is:

Aelyria Windrunner

Now it is time to announce the overall winner! The model who will walk away with the title of Fresh Faces Cycle 1 S-Rank Winner!!

This was a very tight cycle, and there was only a 2 point difference between the top two models. It was unknown who would win until this very last week because everyone did so well, but one model did come out on top!

The Fresh Faces, Cycle 1 S-Rank Winner is…

FORTHYN S’YEL

You have a right to party, my friend! You are the cycle 1 S-Rank Winner!!

Once again, thank you to all the models that participated in this cycle. I hope to see you in future cycles!

Makeover Finale!

This is it! It’s the final week, and someone is about to be crowned the first S-Rank Winner for ENTM: Fresh Faces! For this finale, the judges want to see a complete makeover from head to toe. Anything that can be changed by the Aesthetician should be considered and don’t forget to think outside the box. Go with a look you would normally never do, be daring!

Fresh Faces Week 5 Winner

Hi everyone, Judge Katarh here! Normally I would have turned in my critiques, sat back and watched the votes roll in and be done…. but Host Kai got an unexpected gift to PAX East so she’s leavin’ on a jet plane right about now. Have fun and hand out those ENTM business cards!

Last week, Kai asked the models to go out and do the classic ENTM round of cosplay. Our models gave us a treat, including some never-before-seen in ENTM characters. But the judges and community agreed that one costume stood out just a little bit more, and that costume belonged to Forthyn S’yel for his amazing depiction of Geralt from The Witcher.

As Kai likes to say:

There is ONE MORE WEEK left in our first cycle of 2020. Due to PAX East, we will be delaying the votes for this for a few extra days, so stay tuned next week for our final round theme!

Also, if you considered being a model yourself (or have been one in the past) I’ll be posting an announcement for auditions for our next cycle SOON!

The sky’s the limit, and there are so many to choose from! Note, the full gear sets like Cloud, Squall, and Yuna’s outfit (etc) are off-limits with this challenge. If you have a question on what can be used, let me know. With this week’s image, you must also send a photo of the character you are trying to be!
