    #33 thanks for the modifications. Sorry, just like one other modification to make it perfect. Change colour of the other guy in the background back to black again. That would make it perfect for us!

      #28 strong! Two gossipers in the back change of colour (into Red) would do the trick for us. Thanks!

    #25 we like the coloured charaqcters, what we miss here is facial expression. Please put victim on background. Thanks!

    # 22 We see what you mean but we don't get the feeling. Maybe because the green doesn't work here. Try white?

    # 20 original approach! Good fun. Doubt if the symolism is strong enough.

    # 21, nice job and we like the tone of voice, especially like the two guys. More emphasis on the offender might work (with coloyrs) but we are not sue.

    # 23,16 victim works! thanks. If not too much please present side character in grey scale. See how that works out.

    #17 We like the approach showing the offender THE EFFECT of gossiping. You are category leader in the contest!

    #18 We see nice style but a little bit too obvious. Please read previous comments and briefing for details.

    #10 like offender, but too much emphasis here on second character (mouth, filling image).

    # 15 like offender character, the other not sure ...Victim in background could work here.

    #16 nice traditional cartoon style. To our opinion the best in that categorie till now. Victim in background could work here but not sure.

      @ Hi there Isaac. Symbolism definetely there. Improvements we would be happy with: 1. emphasis/accent on the offender. Male version or maybe you have an idea about a neutral/universal version (not male/female).....? Thanks!

    #7 strong symbolism here! We like the less is more approach. Improvements we would be happy with: 1. emphasis/accent on offender. Male version. Neutral/universal version (not male/female).

    @Enoeth. Thanks for your entries. It is not exeactly what we are looking for (the contest is about single panel cartoons). We do like the one idea with the sheep.

    #8 improvements we like: more emphasis on GOSSIPER. He/she/it must stand out (as the offender). We think it cab be done with minor adjustments (line colour etc.)

    #8convincing post! I see 1. strong symbolism. 2. Good less is more appraoch (what we look for!) 3. own distinctive style. Possible improvements
