This piece fulfils everything we were looking for; unmistakeable 1980s elements, a feeling of action and kinetic movement, Lorraine herself looks badass, and the rendering skill is remarkable. It's a great composition, bringing focus without losing attention to detail. A deserving winner.

Another piece which fulfils all the contest criteria, and also has a clever composition in the circular sweep of action, drawing the eye around the picture. The scenic perspective is also excellent. The colour palette itself is great.

Full of action and 1980s ambience, albeit it almost seems more that Lorraine is fighting off a zombie horde rather than a squad of deadly communists. The use of light and shade to draw focus is impressive, and the pink umbrella brings a much-needed burst of colour to an otherwise muted palette.

This was a most enjoyable, but also very difficult, contest to judge as the range of talent and skill on display was amazing. We could easily have chosen a dozen winners from the finalists! We commend everyone who took part, and hope to see more from you all again soon. After much agonising over our decision we present the winners, and our comments, above.”
Universal Studios and DeviantArt came together to challenge you to illustrate Lorraine Broughton, played by Charlize Theron, in the action - packed world of Atomic Blonde — and the winners are in!
We sent the 25 kickass semi-finalists to Atomic Blonde graphic novelists Antony Johnston and Sam Hart, who, with an independent judge, then reviewed the pieces that best represented agent Lorraine Broughton in action—in the backdrop of the 1980’s.
The three winners above have been picked for their illustration of action, style, and use of the character, Lorraine Broughton, in Atomic Blonde. The winners will receive incredible cash prizing, along with DeviantArt Points, and copies of both the Blu-ray and original Atomic Blonde graphic novel signed by the judges!
All of our Semi-Finalists won a 6-month Core Membership, 800 DeviantArt Points, and a signed copy of both the Blu-ray and graphic novel on which the movie was based! Congratulations, and thank you to everyone who entered!
