ART CONTEST


CONTEST WINNERS

Alright, without further adieu I'm here to announce the winners! The judging process was painfully difficult, what with so many of you doing an amazing job and all that I actually had to ask some friends around on their opinion of the whole thing! Anywho, please contact me via Email or DA notes to receive your awards :]

Each entry is judged based on Technical Skill and Concept for a total score, congratulations to our winners! Also once more, I'd like to give a tremendous thank you to those who participated. :]

1st: Kevin Libranda
T: *****
C: **

The guy behind Novus Karma manages to make my own characters look better than the way I draw them! Haha. Seriously though the color, composition, character (Enyo's face! <3) and just overall finesse of the thing is really impressive and a testament to his skills.


2nd: ArtCraawl
T: ***
C: ****

For all the action, explosions and badassery in SIN I like to make note that it's very character driven. Just seeing these 3 lounging around with all their characterizations intact really hits a soft spot for me. They're even wearing casual/civilian clothes which I find really refreshing from the getups I have to draw over and over, haha!


3rd: SHiRO
T: **
C: *****

I think this entry is the only one that seriously took the whole "No Rules" aspect of this contest to heart to create a narrative! The characterization of Zerus here is spot on and there's an emotional component to the piece that only a real fan could replicate.

Early Bird: UNICORM GUMMY
People often forget 137 who's the closest thing Enyo really has to a friend, I really like how he's just handing her a lemonade here, also the Kaden sandman is a really nice touch! The style's also quite refreshing from the norm of entries!

RUNNER UPS & HONORABLE MENTIONS

Amazing entries that I failed to give an award and entries that I thought were simply worth mentioning, better luck next time!
Also feel free to browse through ALL THE ENTRIES HERE!

Juhani - Great rendering of Kaden having a good time at the skate park :]
T: ****
C: **


doppelganger95 - Really great use of color and shadows, also a really attractive painting style!
T: ****
C: *


PockoChi - Again, great painting skills demonstrated here, I also find it highly amusing to see Zerus with a baby-face. Haha!
T: ****
C: *


nursury0 - Essentially the whole main cast, I like the casual-walk-in-one-direction approach. What makes it really great are all the little details / interactions that highlight their character though!
T: ***
C: ***


OJanSan - Works in the same way Art Crawwl's submission grabbed my attention. I'm a sucker for video games and the expressions are so grizzly!
T: **
C: ****


Rivalhopeso - Zerus looks really good here with a little play on perspective to fill the whole page! With the background and color the overall design of it is quite excellent!
T: ***
C: **


arob707 - Just the sheer amount of illustrative components in this is really cool, it's one of the few entries with a coherent background too!
T: ***
C: ***


Richard Cannon - Zerus in his uhh... super-badass-form that I only showed briefly in one chapter! I still haven't finalized the design on it and Richard makes his own rendering!
T: *
C: ***


Agatha Claire - I love flashback scenes, and I just adore all the leather jackets/vests. Totally reminds me of 90's gangs, haha!
T: **
C: ***


Tsart68 - Cruella! Why she's dual wielding swords of FIRE is beyond me but pretty cool stuff!
T: ***
C: *


Stf74 - Also one of the few who created a sort of narrative aspect to his entry, kudos!
T: **
C: ***


Skona - Yin and Yan! One of the few entries that isn't Enyo or the main cast, I was actually hoping for more submissions of side characters in general. T^T
T: **
C: *


Kashawn Henrey - It's like... SUPER SAIYAN JABARI.
T: **
C: **


Talikira - Don with Pokemon. WHAT IS HAPPENING.
T: *
C: ***


Blarghy - Lena, almost as obscure as Don as far as characters go. Haha

Winners announced!

1/1/13
Hey everyone, just got back from my 5 day trip in Hawaii here! The deadline for the contest has passed and with a total of 71 entries I'll be a busy bee for the next few days judging these guys. Honestly the process is a lot harder than I thought it'd be with so many exceptional submissions I'm going to really hate not having enough awards for everyone! :<

A couple of things! First please make sure your contest entry is listed below in the "Submissions" area and can be seen here for judging. Secondly a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in the contest. I cannot stress enough how much I deeply appreciate the art all of you created from SIN, it means a lot!

Hopefully I'll be able to announce results in a timely manner, I've got a lot of work to get to already from the New Year! <3

12/23/12
With the end of the world behind us and holidays approaching also comes the final deadline for the art contest! Please get whatever submissions you can in before January 1st and don't be alarmed if I don't put it in the "Submissions" area because I'll be away rolling in the sands of Hawaii from the 25th to the 1st!

12/01/12
Hey everyone, so the Early Bird deadline is due and to those of you still looking to enter you have January 1st! Also I wanted to say thank you for all the submissions so far, seeing other people draw your characters is a really enthralling experience! It truly makes me wish I had more awards to give out T_T <3

11/21/12
Alright so with the recent poll I made regarding the contest I've decided to extend the deadline an additional month! (January 1st)

But to be fair, I'll also be adding a "Early Bird" award/prize with exclusive consideration to those who submitted for the initial deadline. This way your promptness doesn't go unrewarded! :]

11/15/12
Half the month is up but I'm kinda bummed sitting here with only 10 submissions! When I did the poll quirkilicious.deviantart.com/j… to ask who'd be interested in a SIN art contest 375 of you said yes...  So here's to hoping you're all just hardcore procrastinators and I'm not gettin trolled! Haha.

11/09/12
Over 10 submissions so far! Wooooo, thanks everyone for participating so far 8D Scroll to the bottom to have a look!

11/06/12
So convention season for me is finally over (just got back from C4) and I guess this is the prime month for submissions since the contest ends the 1st of December~ There are 3 submissions so far so keep ehm coming!

10/16/12
Alright guys, I know the deadline is all the way in December but it'd be nice to at least see one submission by now T^T


INTRO

SIN recently hit over 1000 fans over at MM.net I figured I should finally get to some promotion for the series over here on DA! (other than posting Chapter updates, heh) What's possibly better than an art contest for that sort of thing? (Actually I just had no other ideas, hahaha)

I have very little experience with hosting or taking part in these things so I'm going to apologize in advance if I forget to provide any information! Anyway, if you're interested in entering please keep reading~
