3 (who?)


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.


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.


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.


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.  


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
