The contest has officially closed so now it's time to announce the winners!
In 1st place we have
I love how this piece has a great feeling of movement, tension and anticipation in it that is added by the way the hair flows and the sky particles move.
Overall a very stunning piece from a great artist that really deserves to be in the 1st spot.
In 2nd place we have
This art piece has a very soft mood and the way the artist used lighting to make this pop even more is astonishing.
Every background element, no matter how big or small had received the same level of detail as the character (you can even see his reflection in the water!) and this really shows how much time an love was put into this piece of art.
In 3rd place we have
This was the only person who thought outside of the box and did something that was not 2D art, while there are a lot of beautiful 2D art piece that would deserve this spot as well, this 3D art piece takes home the prize.
As a 3D artist I know all too well how many hours go into creating a piece like this and how frustrating it can be at times to get something to look nice, not only from one view but in full 360°.
So this one is taking home the prize for being the most original and gutsy piece!
The winners can note me to claim their prize, please let me know if you would like your prize in points or via paypal!
The other 14 artists who entered honestly did an amazing job as well and I could not let your efforts go unrewarded,
so I'll be donating 20 points to each of the other artists who entered as a thank you for the effort you put in!
I know it's not nearly what you guys deserve for the time you put in but I hope the small gift is appreciated nonetheless.
Big thanks to everyone who supported and joined this contest!
Stay tuned for my next big contest and for an opportunity to win even bigger prizes!
