The winner of Design Akai-san was Akai-san #1, drawn by ladybahamoth! Congrats!
And now I will showcase everyone's full size images. ♥ They were all really awesome. Full size makes everything better. Perhaps I should link them in the voting post next time? In my mind, Akai-san #3 is totally this guy's sister. And gosh, I cannot get over how pretty Akai-san #6 is. |D

If you're one of the participants, drop a comment below, and I'll hand out participation prizes (and the winning prize as well for ladybahamoth).
I put up a new (very simple) website layout featuring Akai-san. Hopefully this layout is less annoying than the previous one, and it should work in IE too. Let me know if there's anything funky with it.
