Congratulations everyone for making it this far! Lovely, lovely work! I enjoyed seeing everyone's art. I hope that everyone who has entered (not just the ones who placed) will learn and grow from this experience. Good job on taking the challenge!

...I am wondering what counts as a duo, as well. I intended my entry "Unexpected Playmate" as being an interaction between the white dragon baby and the little redhead. The black one with the spot on his snout was supposed to be surprising the little girl. *shrugs* Perhaps my entry was not chosen because of a misunderstanding...? I don't know.

My theory is that maybe cause it was traditional art. I've done a few contests here before and I only draw with pencil and paper. None of my art was ever chosen for anything. Everything I've seen was digital art. That is why I dislike contests. I feel contests are rigged/biased against certain people/art styles.

I know it's too late and won't change a thing, but I'm actually curious! :aww: (I've been wondering with each new entry I saw)

What was considered a duo?

Because in this example, two of these small dragons make one duo: (pardon I can't remember what they're called :D )
Hobgobblers - How to Train Your Dragon Iconic Duo by MiniMythicals

But here, they don't. It's the group of the small dragons that count as one?
95# - The tired old one can not play anymore by LATT-LA

I'm confused ^^'
Nothing against these artists, the entries are gorgeous! But I'm not seeing a consistency with the judging?

I was wondering this as well (I'm the sculptor of the hobgobblers you mentioned.) I considered a duo to be two creatures, but apparently that's not the case. Not that I'm complaining, but I did notice that inconsistency as well. Maybe they should have clarified in the rules.

Yeah i don't get it either as a duo is two characters. and some the the entries i see more than one in there. up to three different dragons or what not. So if there is more that two characters like hiccup-toothless and a nightlight that counts as 3 not 2. Just seems misleading tbh cos that means they didnt follow the rules of what that piece needs to have/represent

I didn't understand it either. There's just one with the Light Fury and with the Night Light baby :shrug:
Ah well. What I did understand is that realistic painting was what counted, even though they did select a pair that wasn't drawn in that style. Idk.
What I hope now is that my favs amongst these get the prizes :D
