Summer Lesson Fan Art Contest

Prizes

審査結果発表!

This was the 12th illustration contest. This contest had over 850 submissions. The theme for this contest was communication between you, the tutor and the characters from the popular VR game, “Summer Lesson”, Hikari Miyamoto and Allison Snow. With so many excellent illustrations, screening was quite difficult. However, the illustrations where we could feel the realist nature of the two characters or illustrations that captured the essence of the in-game world how the creators intended were deemed prizeworthy.

Comment

This illustration really touches the heart, it makes me wonder, ‘What would it be like if these two met...?’.

I can really feel the warmth of a summer breeze from each gentle brush stroke. You have a unique painting style, no wonder so you’re so popular. The characters’ expressions are superb and the way you describe the 3D in-game world of Summer Lesson captivates people who have or even haven’t played the game.

From their expressions, you can really see that they are enjoying summer. I love your attention to detail, it can be seen in the way you drew the clothing and the softness of their skin and hair.

Your drawing skills are excellent. Plus, you directly adapted the motifs into your illustration. I can see why you have so many likes.

    Comment

    We don’t see this type of illustration very often in Japan. I really took interest in your unique style. The 3D accent really gives this illustration an interesting touch.

    I love how Allison is teach Hikari how to play the guitar, it warms the heart. Even though they come from different backgrounds, they look as if they were sisters.

    This illustration was drawn with great attention to detail. The shading is magnificent, it makes the illustration feel so realistic.The lens filter-like effect and the technical aspects of this illustration makes it a sight to behold.

    Comment

    This is a very artistic and powerful illustration. The charming composition echoes in the heart of the viewer. This illustration seems to have been drawn by someone who is used to creating various types of art.

    The color of the ocean is beautiful. The whole illustration has pale tint to it which gives it a dreamy-like feel to it. With the tutor and Allison at the beach, it makes think of what other new adventures await them. This illustration makes me think of possible spin-off stories for ‘Summer Lesson’.

    First and foremost, this is a beautiful illustration. I want to make this my PC wallpaper. I love how it has the essence of it being hand drawn. I want to see Hakari in an illustration like this.

    Title:Two Paths,One Summer

    Comment

    I wonder if among all the entries this is the coolest illustration of the tutor (player). (laughs) The relatioship of both characters and the player as the tutor, is something that can't be seen in the VR game "Summer Lesson", however, a glimbs of this dramatic world of "Summer Lesson" can be seen in this image.

    Did you know that, when you play the 7-day world of "Summer Lesson" and you clear the game, you receive a "Carry-over note" as an item? Have you ever thought about who got this note from whom?

    Summer Lesson" is this kind of mysterious world and this image is pointing this out nicely.

    Title:Thank you, Teacher

    This illustration has a very simple and straightforward theme. The look in the eyes on Allison, when she is peeking towards you is really attractive.

    The length and beauty of her fingers are one thing. The hands of musicians. The action of peeking towards you is one feature that is majorly adopted in VR game, and Summer lesson. Illustrator might have had this in mind.

    Title:sunflowerr

    At first glance, I was caught off guard at the smile of Allision, and its really adorable.

    The straw hat suits her really well, and the illustration conveys that it is not only happy to meet her in VR, but Allison is also interested in meeting the teacher(player).

    Title:horizon

    Personally, I really love this picture. The feeling of the colors, along with the skill of drawing the fluidity in the waves and the clouds, the atmosphere feels as if the two of them are inviting the viewer into the `Pictured World`. As an illustration for a VR-game it makes your heart pound.

    I strongly feel the originality with this fresh take on the hair arrangements. The drawing skill is perfect.

    Title:一緒に花火を見にいきましょう!

    The gentle use of color and the expression of using the blue light, makes you feel the fantasy-like atmosphere, and creates a very special world, doesn't it.

    You can feel the artistic sense in how the coloring is done and the details drawn on the yukata are very cute. Hikari-chan`s expression really lets you feel the pure enjoyment of hers in this adorable illustration.

    Title:Summer Memory

    Amongst the applicants, this illustration had the most "unique perspective". Allison in the sunset with her blue shining eyes seemed very mysterious. It feels like it's a bit different from the original "summer lesson" world, but at the same time, shows another side of her, making it attractive.

    I'm curious about what the author is thinking about the world of summer lesson, and would love to see other piece of works.

    Title:Play!

    Maybe the two visited Akihabara? The way blue color is used is prominent, and the painting is creating a good atmosphere.

    Hikari's pose and slanted composition is creating a sense of uplifting. It seems likes the creator is illustrate how energetic and motivated Hikari is visiting here.

    Title:Warmth, without words

    Night time sky during summer is very beautiful, combination of Japan like silent atmosphere matches really well with the fancy illustration. When Hikari combs her hair with her hands, its attractive.

    Though it is the same fireworks scene in the game, it feels like a totally different perspective. It feels like this piece of illustration is perfected and that can it be used as it is into a poster.

    Title:Melt My Heart

    Hikari's energetic and silly character is delivered clearly! Active characteristics of her is portrayed really well. Composition itself was also challenging and the creator's dedication can be seen through it.

    The summer-like details of all the small items are creating the enjoyable atmosphere of 'Summer Lesson'.

    Title:softball in summer lesson

    This image so clearly shows Hikari-chan in such a dynamic pose and with a distinct cel-shading, however, the most empathetic thing about it would be her swinging the bat dangerously close to her tutor. (laughs)

    When making this scene, we repeatedly adjusted the details and aimed to make it feel scary, even though the bat isn't quite close enough to hit anything. It's great, that this scene, just as it is drawn in the image has become a memorable thing.

    Title:Sushi Lesson

    Allison with sushi was not something one could come up with easily. The atmosphere of the illustration is very beautiful and is easy to imagine the theme: tropical summer.

    It is that Allison really loves Japanese food, and being sushi seems to be a perfect fit with her. I would love to enjoy sushi with Allison at a beach as beautiful as this. Selfie-like angle is really artistic.

総評

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. "Summer Lesson" Producer and Director
Jun Tamaoki

Please explain the spirit of this contest.

"Summer Lesson" uses the technology of VR and we were able to realize the experience of "Having a character in front of your eyes and interacting with them." It's a contest based on this experience. This type of experience is conveyed by actually playing the game, so it is something that is hard to explain to people who haven't played it. We have long since thought about, how to actually express this part that is so hard to convey.
So we thought about asking all the artists out there, to express in an illustration or a manga, what the feeling is like when meeting a character in VR, talking to and having an exchange with them and what they feel doing so, while consulting with CELSYS on the contest efforts.

What was your overall impression of the entries?

First of all, we are extremely happy about the number of entries, that has exceeded our expectations. I think there is also a great amount of variety in the creations. "Summer Lesson" as a game, is usually not just purchased as a "game with girls", so I think the broad variety of the pictures also reflects the wide variety of players.
I felt that there were a lot of images that really brought out the expectations for the future of "Summer Lesson", by condensing the relationship between the character and the player in an illustration or a manga. There are a lot of people, who wish to do a number of thing with the characters they have encountered in VR and expressed their memories from the game so far. A lot of these things have been explored in the works.

Have there been any entries in particular that inspired you?

Many pieces have depicted the characters Hiraki and Allison being friends and talking together, so I think it would be great to bring these two together somehow.For the characters in "Summer Lesson", all of the processing power goes into one girl right now, so it might still be difficult to have them co-star along side each other, but I would hope that somehow, we were able to provide an exchange scene betweeMany pieces have depicted the characters Hiraki and Allison being friends and talking together, so I think it would be great to bring these two together somehow.

Hikari and Allison are completely different in character, but I think they would get along well.
Also, there were a lot of images, that showed high expectations for the future of VR. I think the progress of technology is very fast, so we will continue with various activities, and I would like to increase the excitement for "Summer Lesson".

As a musician, when she’s in the eye of the public, she’s a young woman who sings passionately. But, in her private time she becomes gentle and calm.
Music is her life, but she doesn’t have much confidence in anything else. Prone to worrying, she has a tendency to over think things with the tutor.
Studying Japanese culture is a breath of refresh, and she enjoys do it very much. She’s really enjoying her stay in Japan, so no matter what her manager says, she’s still not ready to go back home.
She’s probably not aware of it or it could just be her devil-may-care attituded, but she has a tendency to act on impulse with considering the consequences.
This is probably same attituded which lead her to escaping to Japan.
