It's that time when we announce winners again! People had a lot of fun with the last two contests, and got to experiment a bit, which was great. We had the fun job of figuring out who managed to answer the prompts best, as well as who had the best art - not always the same thing! Fortunately, we're very happy with our first place winners, and think they're splendid examples of rising to a challenging prompt to create awesome art.
(And yes, we're very late with the October winners, but we're early with the November winners, so let's just pretend it evens out
October Palette Knife Contest
First Place A Sketch Portrait Of A Rooster
is simply wonderful. Aside from being a beautiful painting, it also demonstrates a gorgeous palette knife technique.
Second Place Pumpkin
is bold and fun and intriguing, with a strong composition, dramatic colours and well chosen textures.
Third Place Dare To Enter
is a lovely study of a photograph capturing the grace of the deer and the mystery of the woodland
November Madness Contest
First Place Matriochkas
is subtle and easy to glance past, but a closer look draws you in. A mad look in the eye, a confused stare, and hundreds of little dolls scattered everywhere, watching… speaking to an increasingly frantic loss of sanity searching through them all.
Second Placekobold of Kher Keep
is fierce and bold and full of battle madness.
Third PlaceShow Me A Sane Person
really put some thought into the insanity aspect of the theme, with a message of madness, and a wonderfully detailed Orangutan gazing sadly on.
The winners will all receive the usual prize of their choice and a permanent feature in the winners folder
. We also now have a Contest Winners page
up on our website!
And Everyone Else!
