So many great artists, so little time to browse through everything....

I want to thank all those who submitted entries and have been patient with me as I judged them.  It was a tough one.  I know I say that all the time when I hold a contest, but that is because it is always true.  You all did such a great job and I was glad to see that you had fun with your ideas.  I certainly enjoyed them all.  It is a shame I could not give out more prizes.  Okay, but you all really don't care about this jibber-jabber.  You really just want to see who one the prizes and such.  So here they are.

First Place:
Twisted by Hypoflyse by: :iconhypoflyse:
The world that Hypoflyse came up with was one that just so different than anything else that it pretty much blew me away.  I overall world seemed well thought out and the execution of it was amazing as well.  For that Hypoflyse has won first place.

Second Place:
Allison's Omniverse Adventure Contest by SarahWidiyanti by :iconsarahwidiyanti:
It was all the small details that really caught my eye in this drawing that helped it win second place.  The look of the Skeleton Key, the air bubble around Allison's head, he books, the fish, I could go on.  SarahWidiyanti did an excellent job.

Third Place:
Encounter With The Beast of White Valley by longlovevegeta by: :iconlonglovevegeta:
longlovevegeta did an amazing job showing how Allison did not need to be the front and center focus of the drawing.  The tiny Allison dwarfed by the Beast of White Valley lets you see more of the world she is visiting and the size of the creature which she encountered.

There would be too large of a list for honorable mentions because of all the great entries.  If you want a detailed explanation of why you did not place, then feel free to send me a note and I will explain as best I can to you.

I will be contacting those who placed via note as well just in case they did not happen to see this with information about receiving their prizes and how they would like them.

Now, before anyone asks about it, the grand prize is not listed here for a reason.  That reason is that the grand prize winner will be chosen from people who have entered this contest and one that will be coming up soon.  I have to write something up for it first and when I get that done it will be started.  Do not be worried if you did not place in this contest cause all those have entered this one and the next one will be eligible, not just those who happen to place and I will not be the only one choosing the grand prize winner.  There will be a panel for that.  More about it all will be in the next contest description.

Congratulations to the winners and thanks again to all those who entered!!

I'm your run of the mill nerd-artist. I love video games, anime/cartoons, fantasy/scifi movies, and get very jealous of those who can draw better of me and wish I instantly had their skill.

In the summer of 2009 while working as a groundskeeper at a cemetery I came up with the idea for a webcomic. This idea eventually led me to download a "how to draw Manga" book and see what I could do. I never actually read the book, just took tips here and there from it and in late 2009 I came up with my first drawings. A year later I dropped the comic idea didn't like keeping myself to deadlines and really wanted to just focus on improving and began just trying to get better at drawing. I then came up with my current batch of OCs who make up pretty much all my drawings.

I've never taken a class or any lessons on drawing. All I've learned has come from reading through different books own 5 now, talking to artist who have been inspirations to me to get tips and tricks, and a whole lot of trial and error.

I'd love to hear your feedback on my work. Though try not to be too harsh...

You're welcome.  You are a great artist and I was absolutely blown away when I saw that drawing of Ryuko.  Made me super jealous of your talent.  Keep up the great work and I look forward to when you open commissions again because I would love to have you draw one of my OCs.

No need to thank me so much, I only speak the truth and you're right.  With practice I will get better.  I just wish I had more time to work on practicing my art.  Though I doubt I will get better than you.  Will keep an eye open for when you open commissions again!
