Finally after almost a whole month of anticipation we've finally reached to the end of this amazing contest.
It was a long trip indeed, and I have you guys to thank for that. I got news about the contest and I've got to say with all of the judges decisions.
Here's what we have concluded the results into. (If that even makes sense, my English grammar is bad...)
As you all know we've had exactly 29 entries to this contest. That is actually an incredible number.
It's also the first time in a contest, where I've got so many entries to this contest.
Oh sorry for blabbering too much, I don't want you guys to wait too long for the overall scores and how well everyone faired...
Also keep in mind this was quite a tough decision for all of us and keep in mind.
Each of us judges decided a Picture for each spot, in case you don't understand what I mean by that I'll try and explain as good as I can about it.
I decided since it's going to be too difficult for me to pick all three places myself, therefore because of that I asked help from 2 of my other friends and they decided to help out.
And each of us took a placement in the contest, meaning I took the 1st Place Winner, and my friends took 2nd Place Winner and the 3rd Place Winner.
So it was difficult for everyone to choose, so if some of you find it to be unfair and completely out of the question.
I apologise in advance. We did as well as we could, deciding each and every one of you did an excellent job with your entries.
But there's a few reasons as this why I included criterias to make it easier for us to decide.
As I mentioned in the previous journal I said that it'd be good if more characters were included since it is his anniversary picture after all and I did say that the more characters that are included in the picture the more bonus points the image recieves. That's one of the criterias that actually helped between pictures that had a tie between each other.
So I hope you guys understand, it was very difficult for me to decide. So I hope because of this. I won't have any people that hold grudges on me or start avoiding me because of it.
Besides, this is a contest and in my opinion I think everyone is a winner to me, it doesn't matter whether someone has more experience than the other.
What matters is that everyone have fun and enjoy drawing art. That's what makes us all happy and enjoy things we love doing.
So with all that aside, I think it's time...
It's time to announce the Winners of this contest!
Here are the results...(Keep in mind that I'll be announcing the winners backwards so things will be more confusing
In third Place, with a stellar type of artstyle and amazing captions of each character, we have...
Contest entry. (Title of the deviation, maybe I should've told that person to include a title. Hehe.
(You will recieve a free request made by me and you can note me whenever you wish to tell me about your request so I can get working on it).
And in second Place, with a unique artstyle and a wonderful grace of peace and harmony from the image and excellent effects, we have...
!~The Year of Stanley the Bugman~! (I like the sound of this title, very catchy indeed.
(You will recieve 20 Points which you can use to do whatever you want with).
And in first Place, with a grand slam of epic proportions and so many great details on both foreground and background, plus the characters look all super awesome, we have...
Happy Birthday Stanley! (This title, is simply heartwarming, I love the simplicity and sound of that title, it's very good).
(You will recieve a free Premium Membership, which you can also use to do whatever you want with).
And also here's a few honourable mentions which actually made it far in the Contest but could not make it in any placements.
By the way don't fret, if you already remember I said I am working on a consolation prize and I will post it as soon as possible, but I can't promise anything however.
Also here's a list of awesome artists and friends that I'd like to give credit to because they have helped me out around the years and I am very thankful to have these kinds of people by my side, because without them I don't know how I would keep going with my deviantart account and how I'd continue with my interest in art.Now here goes... And last but not least, YOU of course! Be sure to check out their channels, they are incredibly awesome and they have amazing art and other cool stuff as well!I apologize in advance if people find it annoying that they keep receiving mentions from me and do not wish to be disturbed. I completely understand your frustration and I will try to remember not to do it again next time I post something. So please forgive me. (Also if you didn't happen to be on this list, I apologize in advance. I might include you later on, but you have to comment or note me in order for me to know that you want to be included as well).Now that's all for me for this time, I will be updating often to people that sends a entry of their art for this contest, and I will also update this journal if people wants to have a mention in my awesome artists/friends list, however I will do at the same time once people enter the contest and post their entrys. So it won't be repedetive and annoying once the others that are on the list get a lot of mentions all the time. I don't want to make it sound like I'm spamming them. Those are not my intentions at all. Just saying... Thank you so much for reading and have a very nice day!
