CONTEST RESULTS

17 min read


THE RESULTS ARE IN!!
:iconuguufaceplz:

I'm really sorry for the wait! Was planning on releasing them 2 days ago but things got in the way!

___________________________________________________________________________

FIRST PLACE

Congratulations to :iconnot-unicorn: for being the winner!!! 
I just adore EVERYTHING about this piece!! Your style is extremely unique with how you create such sharp shapes of slightly different shades to build up a 3D form! You've managed to perfectly harmonize all of LDP's colours together in not just your use of lighting and shading, but also in the background. You added just as much detail there, with the gorgeous plumes of smoke/clouds and hints of a skull. The idea of making this a Tarot card is so clever! As is the '
Ten of Swords' theme, adding the scythe in and the stunning glass wings~

SECOND PLACE

Congratulations to :iconnoxaunu: for second place!!! 
This is just so dynamic!! I feel you've really done an amazing job capturing how epic and badass LDP can be!! I love your more realistic style! Not only have you given him amazing anatomy, but such excellent use of shading and lighting!! This was the main reason I chose this piece~ All of his bright colours are muted, being cast in shadow and blue nightly hues, with just the right amount of harsh light brightening up his form~ I love his expression and how his holding his scythe in his teeth as well~
Stormlord by Noxaunu

PEOPLE'S CHOICE

It was horrible knowing I could only pick 2 winners, and then relieving seeing that this one was chosen as people's choice!! Congrats to :iconqueazyy:
This is ADORABLE. You've managed to create such a cute yet creepy version of LDP! HE WOULD BE PROUD
Your animation is so smooth and professional looking! You've done an amazing job with the lighting and making sure that the animated parts blend in perfectly with the still! The button eyes are a perfect touch as is his little smile~ I WANT ONE <3

BIGGEST congratulations to these 3 people!! 

And I thought choosing the finalists were hard!!


Now that the winners are announced I want to quickly say what I liked most about each of the finalists cause they're all so amazing and deserving!
Please note they are in no particular order!! 
_____________________________________________________________________

death rainbow puppy by Eeryl
Just the sillyness behind this picture..I just can't get enough!! The idea of making LDP an Alibrije is too perfect~ I can just imagine him in Coco flying around being a derp and being utterly useless <3 The framing in this is spot on with the other Alibrije, as is the movement and posing! Having his front paw out and wearing that expression is SO befitting of LDP's character~ 
Really nice job on the two sources of lighting btw!!
___________________________________________________

THIS DOTH NOT APEASE HIS MAJESTY DEATHPAIN III by SpicyBrownieMix
I can see why this one took you a while!! The amount of characters in this is astonishing!! And even though they all have such different, amazing designs you've still managed to make LDP the focus in the picture with excellent use of staging and especially lighting!! I adore the setting of this, like its a busy marketplace thats always full of life~ You've got a very good sense on how to depict different expressions and moods! Keep it up! BTW I SEE LITTLE LUMEN IN THERE <3 <3

___________________________________________________

LORD DEATHPAIN III by NeelahW
I feel this is EXACTLY what LDP would have in his body haha~ It explains why hes so colourful! Love how you have his body/colours melting into each other and that crazy expression! A cool effective way of showing how you can make such a bright, gaudy design work by adding more bright colours!
___________________________________________________


In your description you stated you wanted to give off a more unearthly vibe with inspiration from 'The Day of the Dead' and to me, you've captured that perfectly! I love the surrealness you've created here~ From the pose and perspective of LDP, to the crazy background! The broken moon looks awesome with that sickly green glow and I love how you put a skull and hearts on the ground to match his butt mark~ A really really cool piece~
___________________________________________________

Lord Deathpain the III by RikoSakari
This piece was a hot second in people's choice!! I'm so glad others could see/appreciate the amount of work but into this! I ADORE how the viewer is looking up at LDP here~ The idea of having him completely backlit is SO effective! You've created really nice depth with the Scythe coming down, and captured amazing detail, especially in the wings and face~ You should be so proud of this!! 
___________________________________________________

*LOST*Death and decay by Brissinge
When scrolling through the entries to pick the finalists, this piece just popped out to me! With one of the main reasons being the use of the aqua, green colours used. The green hue is usually a harder tone to work with but here I can safely say you've nailed it!! Really nice job with the lineless, painterly style you've got going as well as the angle of certain aspects like the wings and tail~
___________________________________________________


Personally out of all the entries, I think this one shows the strongest emotion! I can almost feel the pure rage/hurt LDP is emitting here~ Seriously one of the most badass pics!! LOVE the summoning circle behind him and how you've used his scythe to CUT OF HIS HEAD?? PURE METAL <3 <3 <3 Awesome job with the glowing eye and movement in this piece as well!! And of course the blood effects <3
___________________________________________________

Runaway by Eldritch-Dragon
I never thought I'd see such a peaceful, beautiful drawing of LDP but here it is~ This one stood out to me at first because of the pretty, soft muted pinks and yellows. Upon reading the description I further fell in love with how you've interpreted his crazy designs~ It's honestly one of my favourite ideas with how you decided to give him bone-and-bead jewellery to show those markings and how his element is cloud manipulation~ I also loved your little backstory <3
___________________________________________________


OKAY WOAH HELLO DETAIL Like damn this must've taken a while!! Not only did you draw an epic version of LDP in anthro form, but also 5 ethereal wolf heads! (6 if you count the skull lol) This is such a cool depiction on what his throne would look like and his Scythe if it was drawn more realistically! <3 Amazing job with those wings btw! I also really like how you've made his tail glowy! That hint of yellow is so effective at drawing the eye in~ <3
___________________________________________________

The Lord Is Pleased by Corrupted-Soul13
I love the strong yellow lighting here! Like theres a strong sunset or fire happening in the background~ Those wings must've taken a while to draw!! I like how you decided to use green as a main colour feature with the red and yellow~ In LDP's design his green hair usually is the hardest to get to work but you've done it here! Good job!
___________________________________________________

lord deathpain xd by Igirre
The setup and pose of this just screams powerful and epic~ He looks so mighty here holding the Scythe in his canines! I REALLY like the texture of the fur you've drawn~ Its very well done especially in the mane and tail~! Nice used of duel lighting and how you've drawn the flames! Its cool how they frame the bottom like the wind from his wings have parted it~ I love how this overall gives off a super serious tone but then you see subtle hints of silly like the sparkles off the Scythe <3 
___________________________________________________

Gods of the City by CharTonk
LOOK AT HIS LITTLE CROWN AHH  
The fact that you've said that you've never drawn a 
wolf, shaded fur, or messed with double light sources before makes this entry even more impressive!! I think you've nailed all those aspects~ Your fur shading has a really cool style to it~ Like its silky smooth and shiny <3 Good job creating that movement! Like hes leaping forward with that evil grin <3
___________________________________________________

Lord Deathpain The III by AmoriRedwood
The fur here...wow. This must've taken so so long~ I love how you've elongated LDP's mane and have it being tousled by the wind~ This is a rare piece where you've created such a peaceful scene yet not used any pastel, muted colours. You've stayed with the strong hues and blacks and I gotta say it works really well!! I really like how the ground isn't stereotypical green grass but more snow, with red grass tuffs. It makes it more original and other worldly. The adorable little bird is a perfect addition <3 <3
___________________________________________________

Slay by Sticklet
An EXCELLENT use of lighting here! That one beam shooting down onto LDP makes him look so foreboding and dangerous! Really good job knowing where to put the lighting! He looks really believable and 3D because of it! I also like the muted, darker tone and the shine of his Scythe!
___________________________________________________


This one is probably one of the most realistic versions of LDP I've seen and I'm in love with it!! I love how you have the soft yellow lighting catching on his wings, bathed in light, whereas the rest of him is mostly in the soft shadows. You've given him a serene, peaceful look and made him look so fluffy and soft!! I like the super subtle hint of blue light hitting is face so his features don't get too muddled into the background~ Really really nice job! <3
___________________________________________________


I have fallen in love with your style!! Its so unique and expressive!! I feel like it goes hand in hand with LDP's gaudy features! Its really cool how you've exaggerated some features and made others smaller~ Like his horns to his feet~ He just looks so silly and goofy!! I feel like this is a perfect example of simple and effective~ <3 
___________________________________________________

Contest entry 3 - Lord of Creativity by xXxMKayxXx
WOW this is such a surreal concept!! Its so original and striking! I love how you've interpreted each feature~ Like how you've got his red markings going up and yellow lightning coming out of his eyes~ Not to mention his epic tail that flows down into a waterfall of colours~ The background has such warm tones~ <3 I love the moon and his angry roar as well! Really good job! 
___________________________________________________

Contest Thing by aquacat451
Okay I think its safe to say this is the cutest pic of LDP I've EVER had the pleasure of seeing~ Like I squealed when I saw this! HE'S JUST SO HAPPY I adore his little pose with his feet in the air and the little tuffs of grass surrounding him~ I love how you've made is tail an adorable little tuff as well as drawing his wings and Scythe! I just love everything about this so much~!! <3 <3
___________________________________________________

The Edge of Uncertainty by Dokusa
The perspective of this one is SO cool! You said you wanted to give the viewer a '
little vertigo, like you're about to fall in' and oh my goodness you succeeded. Its so effective and foreboding~ Drawing a character from birds eye view can be so challenging and hard to pull off but you've done it. You've given the right proportions to him so it makes sense and you've made his eyes super bright creating the perfect focal point. Really really good job with wing anatomy and the subtle features like the rocks crumbling away beneath him and the bandage flowing in the wind.
___________________________________________________

I know I've already said this but seriously thank you so much to everyone entering this silly little competition! 
I'm really sorry I couldn't comment on them all! I truly wish I could~ 

I was so surprised and happy with the amount of entries and passion people put in their artworks that in the future I hope to do another competition! (With more winners next time lol) 

THANK YOU AGAIN YOU AMAZING PEOPLE

FINALLY after several days of agony I have narrowed down all the entries to 22 finalists!
It was suppose to be 20 but yeah..screw that :iconlazycryrollplz:


Just before I announce them I just wanna say the biggest thank you to all that entered!! I seriously wish I could have commented on ALL of them! 
Please do not feel too disheartened if yours wasn't picked! I have read every.single description under all the entries and am so humbled reading what people had gone through with either how long some took, the troubles they had or how they learnt new things~

I also ADORED how some people created backstories or explained Lord Deathpain's given powers~ There were so many creative ways people justified why he was so eye bleedingly bright!! E.g He's blending into a psychedelic world, he's actually death or king, to parts of him being made of glass~ :iconeweplz:
