:iconaplz:fter starting KING KONG AND I contest NEW DK by PxlCobit15 weeks ago, it's time to celebrate.

There are at least 6 entries that are proper enough to be the first place winner. 

It's not easy to choose because their quality are quite close. :eager:


Some contestants may be more skillful than me; but as a judge, finding flaws is my duty. 

And it's hard to find a flawless work. Each entry seems to has at least one flaw. 

So, I will not only give priority to technique and skill but also consider the concept. 

As the main theme of the contest is about King Kong and his woman, 

I looked for the entry that can portray the feeling, reaction or relationship

between King Kong and his woman well.. no matter where they are.


I noticed that most of the female models used in this contest are from faestock

I don't have time to count, but there seem to be more than 50%. 

This event almost can be called King Kong and Jessica contest. =D


Because I got so many good entries, 

I increased more prizes to thank you guys for making this contest successful. 

I ended up spending 20,082 :points: in this contest. (3,500 :points: were donated from friends, 

the rest were from various contests I won in the last 3 years.)

Though I can not give prizes to all contestants, 

at least I hope all of you had fun and useful experience from this contest more or less. 

Keep improving your skill, someday you will win. :handshake:


(There are 5 entries having broken link here because of an unknown problem.)


Okay, here are the prizes and the winners.

Curiosity by Adriana-Madrid

Curiosity Mr. Monkey - avatar by BurningOn

Adriana-Madrid has created magical scene

The King Kong, the woman and the waterfall were wisely chosen. 

The lighting and the warm color tone look so beautiful, dreamlike and mysterious.

This is absolutely the place where King Kong is supposed to live. :clap:

 

The King's In Love by Lora-Vysotskaya

monkey by LoRi-La-TortugaThe King's In Love

The concept of Lora-Vysotskaya's entry is so romantic, creative and different.

The execution is also nicely done especially the light and shadow. 

If King Kong movie will be remade in a romantic comedy version,

this work is perfect for a movie poster.  :love:



Silence at Sunset by InertiaRose

Silence at Sunset swinging monkey by RJdog1000

If there is a contestant that amazes me most, that person must be InertiaK 

because her 2 entries look so much different.

This one is absolutely a masterpiece. The colors of the whole work is incredibly beautiful,

and her Kong is the most stunning and powerful king of all.  :wow:

King Kong and I by Whendell

King Kong and I .:monkey:. by sheike 

Whendell mesmerizes us with an epic Skull Island in wild screen.

I can see a lot of details and imagination in his entry.

The color of the whole work looks really sweet as well as the Kong and the concept.

He and his girl seem to live peacefully ever after in this wonderful world.

Such a lovely work! :love: 



King Kong by JoeDiamondD

Monkey-ing Around by abbylandKing Kong 2

JoeDiamondD submitted only 1 deviation in her gallery during the last 28 months. 

This work is like an announcement of the return of one of the most skillful photomanipulaters in DA. 

This work shows a lot of incredible blending. Normally, I could see a flaw from most entries at first glance,

but with this one I needed a magnifying glass! :clap:

(Note: As the rules said that a contestant can get prizes from only one entry, JoeDiamondD will get prize from this entry only.)

Farewell by Cold-Tommy-Gin

Farewell Wocky Monkey animation by Momogirl

I always thought the winner of this contest might be one of the entries submitted in the last month.

But Cold-Tommy-Gin's entry, which was submitted since the first month,

is wonderful enough to make a miracle. 

I looked at the 3 most voted entries time and again to place one of them on the 1st place.

It's really hard to choose. But I finally give the crown to this one. 


Tommy not only tells the story of King Kong very well

but also can express the sentimental feeling between the characters

and depicts the dangerous situation at the same time in one scene.

Besides the brilliant concept, this work also shows interesting technique,

beautiful vision and a great composition.
