1ST PLACE WINNER
By Amber Chambers
"Peacock and the Phoenix, these two represent the 4 elements, the Phoenix is fire and air, and the Peacock Water and Earth"
*As soon as I saw Amber's entries I knew I had a winner! Not only is she obviously a very skilled and talented artist, but I loved her original and unique ideas! All her pieces tell a story and leave me wanting to know more about them! She is a master of narrative as well as color and design skills. This piece was so powerful and perfectly executed that it just had to take my 1st place spot. I love the peacock inspired gown and the male character fits in so perfectly. It's truly a breathtaking piece and I'm so honored to be part of it! Please check out Amber's fabulous work here: www.thewanderinggoat.weebly.com
2nd PLACE WINNER
by Katarina Bacevic
"Africa woman. I started this drawing with hair and my friend was sitting next to me and she told me how cool would be If the girl was without it. So I listened to my friend and add this big earing and remembered of "Kirikou", French movie about African tribe and that small boy... Anyway, that is what came out whit all this colours... I have to add what Coco Chanel said: "The best colour in the whole world, is the one that looks good on you!" -Katarina
*Well Katarina, I'm so glad you listened to your friend because I absolutely love that she doesn't have hair! In fact she was the only entry I received who didn't have hair! This piece truly speaks for itself, but I love Katarina's use of color in this piece. The simple graphic style works perfectly and she balances the heavy detail in the dress with a more simplistic background and complimentary color scheme. Wonderful wonderful work Katarina, bravo!
I'm so pleased to announce the winners of my Collaboration Contest! I couldn't be more impressed by all the amazing entries and all the creative ideas! It was so exciting to see what everyone came up with! To see all the entries please visit my facebook fan page and click the image below:
The contest started with these two figure templates, that I drew and all contestants were instructed to design their own character! I left the parameters pretty open so everyone had the chance to let their creativity shine through!
