Journal paid for by some kind gents who'd like to see more contests and a Super Group logo on us, the ever fantastic :iconesaarts: and :iconcrimson-nemesis:. Thanks gents!

Right-o! A long while back I started a Hobbyist Only Contest, and... well, today was the day I set to end it. We didn't have a huge overflow of submissions (unfortunately) but what we got I am proud of. Here I'll show the submissions and the top three winners and their prizes!

(Oh, and here's the original contest if you want to look at it: fav.me/d9zrd94)

Alright! Let's see some winners now...

I will choose winners... basically over my favorite pieces based on actual look and not what game it's from. I will also say this beforehand: a well done simple piece looks a helluva lot more pleasing to the eyes than a complex piece taken too far and over the top. Now then!

:bulletorange: Third Place (Bronze) Winner :bulletorange:

Eleween with their Ori and the Blind Forest fanart!
Ori  by Eleween
The lighting here fits their theme of almost a mythical forest and, while the background isn't the most advanced bit of art I've ever seen, it's good enough to allow the enjoyment of the piece as a whole, especially with the cute little bugger himself. I've never played the game, but based on this piece, I fear I shall do so soon, and if it looks like this, then I'll be damned grateful.

Congrats on third place! Your reward has been donated by IviEnchant; a full body portrait of... anything, I suppose. Talk it out with them.

:bulletwhite: Second Place (Silver) Winner :bulletwhite:

Hyenapocalypse with their Legend of Zelda fanart!
Sepia Link by Hyenapocalypse
Allow me to say that this would have almost certainly gotten first had it been colored; nostalgia aside, the heroic pose that is, if not required, heavily asked for in a hero is all there, flowing cape and all. The minor details given all throughout the body, while simple, are well placed and give a sense of depth without actually going into things like shading. Well done, sir!

Congrats on second place! Your reward has been donated by AuriV1; a portrait of a character, or... anything. I guess. I'm not sure, but it's a portrait.

Right then.

:bulletyellow: First Place (Gold) Winnnah! :bulletyellow:

AuriV1 with their Dragon Age fanart!
:thumb604275577:
Now then. I've never played the game, and I'm not sure that I want to because it sort of sounds like a lot of other games I've played, buuuuuuuuut... This guy is pretty damned good at the whole "Realistic Human Being" scene. I will say the eyebrows creeped me out, but beyond that the man looks as if he might simply step out of the screen and ... I dunno. Perhaps steal your ice cream. Anyhow, the piece is well done and realistic and colored, so there really is no way I could say no, now is there?

You got first place, mate! Have 400 :points: and a hug! I suppose you could also brag and say "YEP! I won. Gwahahaha." on its page, but people on the deviation's page will have no idea what you're talking about, but like... if you want to, more power to yah.


So! Didja enjoy the contest, I guess? If we get some more points I'll gladly start another one... perhaps for game concepts. Yeah.

Ooookay... I was pretty sure that the deadline had been listed as being a month from now. I've been working on a piece for a while, and was hoping to finish it up and enter it. I'm certain that there would have been a lot more entries in the coming weeks. But congrats to the winners and to those who were able to get their entries in before the deadline moved.

EDIT: May I suggest maybe requesting an "I'm in" message so you can get a fix on how many entries to expect, so even if you aren't getting the amount of entries you want, you know that more may be coming in?

Someone requested that it get sent back, but keep your WIP if you have it, I'm starting another one! Someone suggested via note to myself that it was too long and people would lose interest so like... he wanted it shorter. I did so because I didn't see why not, but now I do. 

Still! We're having another fanart contest ^_^

Tell them to submit it to the next one, we're starting another contest with the same 400 :points: prize. Don't worry about it, someone just wanted the contest to end a little earlier so people would stay interested, so... like... yeah. 

Anyhow!

As I said to the other person, I can make another contest? Someone asked for the contest to be shorter and I didn't see any reason not to help out, so...

I can start another contest? I really hate when people don't have enough time.

If ya want to lol. I know organizing contests and getting prize donors and stuff can be a bit time consuming.

I'd love to join it though, if I can just enter the piece I'm working on now (I'm not lazy, I swear xD I just thought the deadline was in june)

Congrats to everyone! :D I agree with :icondocapocalypse:, this was a refreshing event to see; lots of the groups I'm in don't host competitions anymore, and it was nice to participate in one again. :)

*makes note to practice eyebrows more...* :XD:
Reply
:iconxerufury:
XeruFury Featured By Owner May 15, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
It's alright for the eyebrows, it was still the best submission, yeah? The eyebrow just sort of looked off.

But yeah! I'll do some more once I get some more points/if the owner allows me to use more existing points.

Hyenapocalypse Featured By Owner May 15, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow, this is awesome! I never win anything =P
I do wish I had more time (and skill) to color my submission properly, but anything I laid down seemed to detract more than anything... so I went back and focused more on good line work.

Congrats to everyone who participated! This contest was a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to more in the future :)

Yeah man, the piece was well done, even if simple.

If it's any consolation, I can't draw at all, so... well done.

Cheers mate!

Ach, no worries. My hands are the least of my worries so I'm grateful for that, at least, although who I'm grateful to is beyond me.

And good! Glad people like these, at least.

Hey there! You've won a head-only character portrait from me as your second-place prize - an oc or a fancharacter, or a favorite NPC. Whenever you like, just let me know what you want (with as many references as possible) and I'll get your prize to you as soon as I am able. :)
