MiSha photoshoot poll results
In my previous journal entry I provided links to ten doodles of potential candidates for further MiSha photoshoot pics in the latest shower photoshoot. I also asked people to vote on four of the candidates, as I had hard time choosing which to use in the end. A proper MiSha photoshoot is six pics long, so four more pics will be needed.
I'm now concluding the poll, so no more votes are necessary. Thanks to all 38 people who voted. The results are quite informative.
I'm now listing the candidates in winning order. After that I'm talking a bit about what I think of the results and what you can expect the results to mean.

Thoughts on results
There are actually two placements that are tied, first and fifth. The overall results don't surprise me too much, though I was expecting candidates 7 and 10 to place a little bit higher. Overall, it's pretty clear that you guys like pics where MiSha's boobs are in view better than the butt focused pics. Admittedly MiSha has been all about her boobs from the beginning. The only one with butt in focus among the top 4 is candidate 5, but that one also shows some boob, so that must be why. Candidate 2 placing last doesn't surprise me. It was a mess from the start and I was honestly hoping it wouldn't place near the top. Candidate 1 placing so high was also a bit of a surprise, though I do personally like it a fair bit.
So, I'm going to use the four pics at the top? Umm... probably not exactly. Definitely using the top two, but the other two may need to be switched to the runner-ups to provide a better flow to the progression in the pics. Ideally I want the boob and butt focus to be evenly presented as well, so I'm probably going to need to have the second highest rated butt focus pic included, that is candidate 10. Or 7, which would be a great finisher. Candidates 1 and 5 are also very similar in the situation they represent, so using both doesn't seem like a good idea. And since 5 got more votes, candidate 1 will likely end up the one excluded. Candidates 3, 4 and 9 are also all pics of MiSha sitting or kneeling on the floor, so using them all would make the rest of the shoot overly focused on the floor level. Not necessarily a bad thing, but again, ideally I'd like the pics to have variety.
To be honest, the only thing the poll helped with is to rule out the two least voted ones, and to confirm two pics that will definitely be included. The rest could really go a lot of different ways.
Some initial options I'm considering (candidates in order they'd be used):
- 3 (bikini bottom added) -> 5 (as is) -> 10 (as is, or with bikini top removed) -> 4 (no bikini parts)
- 4 (edited to look like she's untying the top) -> 5 (bikini top removed) -> 3 (no bikini parts) -> 7 (as is)
- 5 (as is) -> 10 (as is) -> 3 (as is) -> 9 (as is)
Opinions and suggestions are of course still welcome. I don't think I'll be able to start working on the next pic for at least a few days anyways. I'm leaning toward the second option above at the moment. The third option is also appealing as it involves the least editing and candidate 9 would help me practice drawing feet, my weakest area by far. 9 isn't on my top favorite list otherwise though.
In any case, look forward to a new MiSha photoshoot pic in the coming weeks. And thanks again to all who voted, and for any feedback provided throughout this photoshoot design process!
