It really shouldn't ... if that was true I would've made a Jesus gfx with Obama in the background. lol
It shouldn't, but it does. For example, a person will always be drawn to something they like and are more likely to vote for something with a good design and a subject matter they love than they are to vote for a subject matter they hate but with exceptional design.
good design is still the primary reason but you really need to get the subject matter right to win these things
I'd rather people voted based on the work done, rather than the stock/render chosen.
That's all I meant by the bolded.
Oh yeah, for sure. that is without doubt the ideal scenario
