After being elected as one of many fine finalists in the recent Devious Desktops: Warm Vibes
competition I had my fingers crossed over the past week thinking about nothing other than what the results would be. This was the first contest I've heard about in ages I was actually interested in theme-wise and one that was also open to all members around the world so I jumped on it right away!
It paid off as I won one of the three winning positions!
It's been years since I won anything here, and even those were smaller scale contests held by individual users or groups. I'm certain this is the first time I ever placed in one of the big ones dA drops into our message centres a few times a year (and I heard there's a round two!
) To think I actually had extra ideas for this contest but due to time constraints I had to put all my eggs in one basket and commit to the one artwork. It paid off!
Perhaps they'll do a winter themed one in December, I'm already thinking up ideas for a chilly sister-piece to this one just in case
