Before I get to the goodies of letting you know who won, I would really like to take this time to give credit where it is due.
not only entered my contest twice, but they donated to it and something like that cannot be ignored. Please if you can, go visit their page and give me comments, favs and llamas! I would really appreciate it<3
And I could never forget the kind deviants who volunteered their artwork to my contest! You guys are great~
Now onto the contest, I love each and every one of your submissions.
They make me so happy, I can't even describe in words how much each one means to me.
You guys have NO IDEA
how hard to pick the winners, since everyone put so much effort into every submission, I literally had no sleep the last few nights just trying to decide! At no point did I say "Oh they didn't put enough thought into their concept" Infact so many of you put so many details and so much effort into them, I was literally pulling my hair. However after a ton of coffee, trying on new wigs to cover my bald spots, and lip biting, I finally chose the winners.
Why they won this place: If there were ever to be an anime featuring Smoochy, I could see this appearing in the intro somwhere. The detail in this is are jaw dropping, I will admit it took me a good 15 minutes of stairing just to take everything in.2nd place
Why they won this place: The visuals in this are stunning. My eye never gets bored looking at this. The contrast between the blue and purple are great. I really like the concept of the world around her being winter, but the umbrella showing that she would much rather be doing a ceremony in spring.3rd place
: Why they won this place
: This artwork is easily one of the most talked about between my friends. They absolutely loved what you did with Smoochys dress, and the way you worked the background, and honestly, I couldn't agree with them more. The changes are drastic in details, but pleasing and I could see this being a permanent ball wear design for her.Honorable Mention
: Why they won this place
: The concept was great! and out of all my entries, you're the only one who had anything relating to the ice path, which in the original version, would really be the only place you could realistically find one, cause that's where Jynx's would breed XD
Congratulations you guys!
You are truly amazing! I feel so blessed to have had you guys enter!
And for those of you who did not win, please don't think it was because your art was bad! Everyone's entries were so beautiful
By the end I was literally torn between 10 pieces, and if it were in my budget, all of you would have had a place. It was so hard for me to choose. All of you put so much care and effort into your submissions, It really showed and gave me a tough time when choosing winners!
