I'm new - just started posting entries in the derby - yes, I start wondering why some entries get more votes than others especially when I worked hard on an entry and I am proud of it.
But (and this will probably make me rather unpopular) there is no reason to complain about RamyB or DianaSprinkle or any other that consistantly wins based on what anybody calls a recycled design. This is about MARKETING - the votes come in on these designs because the general population is depressed and down due to the world economic state and we gravitate toward those things that make us smile and forget about our own personal situations.
Simply put, if you don't like the art style then don't vote for it, but if others do, the designers are not to blame. They are doing what works.
