CONTEST WINNERS


Hey guys! So sorry this contest is ending 2 months late, aagh! It was very difficult to get together with everyone to finish it due to myself and most of the judges being sick, gone or busy during the holiday season, which is something I most certainly didn't consider, I'm so so sorry about that! But after more agonizing deliberation and re-deliberation, at last three winners have been chosen, along with two runners up.

FIRST PLACE


Enigma by CallieFink
"Enigma" by CallieFink
Judges ended up being drawn back to this piece time and again due to its creative originality, vivid color, incredible detail and positive energy.


SECOND PLACE


Self - the creation of Evil. by CrossingMissVampire
"Self" by CrossingMissVampire
The judges were impressed with the creative, surrealistic feel, the personal statement made, and above all, the impressive, meticulous details.


THIRD PLACE


V  I R I D I A N by tincek-marincek
"V I R I D I A N" by tincek-marincek
This magical piece wowed the judges with its unique creativity, lovely surrealistic quality and the fact it was created using such differing traditional media.  


RUNNERS UP


These next two pieces in particular received a lot of favorable attention after the aforementioned winners, and everyone wanted them to place in some way, so it has been decided they will be awarded a special prize of 250 points each (now awarded) for their efforts!

Bob by XeNzO     :heart:      The Great Horned Owl by Wicked-Illusion
"Bob" by XeNzO    and    "Great Horned Owl" by Wicked-Illusion

No problem, everyone LOVED your work, it was a difficult choice for all. We all wanted you to be given a prize, I know 250 points isn't a whole lot but hopefully it'll help you toward buying a nice print, or a 3 month membership or something :)

You know, I was going to comment the other day to see how you were doing! I know the last time we talked you were pretty bad off with a cold and had to delay the contest for a bit. Well, I'm glad to see things are picking up and happy to see the winners finally announced. They're absolutely amazing pieces and I hope these artists go places with their work. Again, congratulations to the winners and have a wonderful new year! :D

I actually had more than the flu - it developed into pneumonia and I'm still recovering if you can believe it. It was pretty bad. But I'm finally able to move about, tho quite weakly, and I still have the lingering cough. Didn't think I was going to pull thru for awhile there! :faint: Then most my final judgement judges were gone for the xmas holiday; I only just today heard from the last one and BAM I made this journal entry as quick as I could LOL I have a big note to give you a full journal write up, too, I haven't forgotten :cuddle:

Oh man...that's terrible. I think I remember you telling me about pneumonia now...I had a really bad cold around the same time and I just knocked out the coughing finally. It's been a really bad year for influenza in general...hope you fully recover soon, though. I can imagine how bad things must be when you get backed up; I was backed up for nearly a month with my work and I had to cancel an order, but we re-scheduled for February. :( Yea, speaking of the holidays...did you manage to have a good Christmas even though things have been rough? And, it's perfectly ok. Take all the time you need for the feature - I rather you rest up and get better before worrying about a silly mention. XD

Yeah, didn't you say you pulled your back out with coughing..? Was that you? So many people I know have been so sick, it's been a bad winter for flu/pneumonia all around. Things in my life got SO backed up, I'm still playing catch up! (as you know!) I had a very quiet holiday season - not much running around for sick little me. I hope to do all my catch up running around in spring :lol: But don't worry, doing a feature will be easy, I'll be glad to do it, I've wanted to for a long time, you're such a fabulous artist!! :blowkiss: Thank you so much for your care & concern, you're so sweet & kind :heart:

Omg yes, I also ended up cracking a rib in the process of all of that (wow lol you remembered that!). Granted, my back is doing great and my rib is in better condition. It's a little stiff to bend over and work out, but It's coming along great. Yea, I can tell you're backed up, but don't worry too much. We'll all be glad to see your upcoming work when things work out. And, awww thanks for commenting my art :blushes: I just recently donated to TegakiE in hopes of keeping it around a little bit longer. :) It's such an amazing program and I wish others thought so too. I recently had a horrible scrap with a few group moderators who keep claiming false accusations that my portraits are painted-over photos...they didn't want to listen to my words at all. :no:

And you're very welcome. I try and be there for people when I can...so I definitely hope you recover soon. :hug:
