:star: Greetings! Today we shall show you the three lucky winners of our Hans Christian Andersen Deck contest!!! :star:

We had ourselves a bit of a brainstorm when discussing the top three of our contest but here you are now

So, the winners are:

:bulletred:3rd place:bulletred:
:iconannsquare: with…

Verdict: You can see at the start which fairytale it is and it's one of the utmost importance in our verdict.
We found that Strength card is one the of most adequate posibilities for "The girl with matches" (she found her strength with every lighted match which finally allowed her to die without pain, in silence and serenity and to meet her dead grandma where she found peace and rest.)
It is also created in realy climatic style of crossing lines which seems to fit here perfectly.
Unfortunately it seems a bit would get higher place the piece was taken to an end. That's why we decided to give it third place

:icondivider2plz:The prizes are:

+100 points from *garikaliev
+One from the list below:
>one traditional half body+colours, no background (your choice) from *Silmeven
>one traditional half body+colours, no background (fanart) from *Silmeven
>one traditional manga/cartoon style chibi+colours, no background(your choice) from *Silmeven
+one traditional black&white (pencil work) or colour half body or portrait (your choice) from *Heniek

:bulletblue:2nd place:bulletblue:
:iconannewipf: with…

Verdict: The Snow Queen is an example of splendid idea of using base card symbol to present a certain character. The symbol of snow instead of traditional card color was a great idea as well (it seems to refeer a bit to diamonds color, which I find myself a very clever move ;) ). Also we like how the mirror effect came out, traditionally (without any graphic program help) and with high care for the details (you can see some some differences in each reflection but it's only proving that it was hand made and seems there aren't so many of those differences it shows the hard work author put into his work)
Here as well you can see directly to which of Hans's fairytale this character is

:icondivider2plz:The prizes are:

+50 points from *Silmeven and 100 points from *garikaliev
+One from the list below:
>one traditional fullbody+colours, simple background (fanart) from *Silmeven
>one traditional half body+colours, no background (your choice) from *Silmeven
>one traditional half body+colours, no background (fanart) from *Silmeven
+One traditional black&white (pencil work) or colour fullbody (simple background) from *Heniek

:star:1st place:star:
:iconxemoxxxvampirex: with…

Verdict: Tha Ugly Duckling shows perfectly which of the Andersen's Stories it represents.
The card symbol of Two is as much as well suited to the story (The two characters, the sad bird when it was called the ugly duckling and the beautiful, proud Swan which it becomes at the end) as oryginal. The symbols are perfectly set and the level of work is the best from final five. It is beautifully finished, the drawing style is really nice, soft and gentle which suits the them wonderfully. You can see the Author put full effort in this pic

:icondivider2plz:The prizes are:

+150 points from *Silmeven and 100 points from :devarikaliev:
+One from the list below:
>one traditional commission of choice (colours+background, wathever you wish!) from *Silmeven

It should be done by "+ Submit to a Group" button on the right side next to your entry. There's should be an option of choosing "Andersen's 206th birthday contest" folder.
