We received over 1000 Portfolios as applications for the Comic-Con scholarship
, and narrowing the field down to two emerging artists was no easy task. We saw work of epic proportions and found tons of incredible talent. Thankfully, we had a true master and visionary, Dave Elliott, aka DeevElliott
, to choose the scholarship recipients. Our thanks and appreciation goes to DeevElliott
and to everyone who submitted an application.The two recipients of this scholarship are:Traditional-based artist: Nhaar
Web-based artist: Drunken-Novice
Our excitement for Comic-Con grows with each passing day, and we're not the only ones feeling the pre-convention jitters. Recently, deviantART's love for Artists' Alley was displayed for millions to see in downtown New York City. Check out these photos taken in NYC's Times Square showcasing deviantART's sponsorship of Artists' Alley!
