Winners

And after the long, hard and seemingly almost impossible task we managed to choose winners, almost... You soon will understand why we said "almost" but first we all want to thank every one who participated. We got much more entries than we ever expected, so much fantastic ideas, many talented and known artist but also many new talents, fresh ideas and bright accomplishments. We all want to just thank all participants, supporters and everyone who helped us. Thank you all - without you it would not have been possible.

And now the part we all have been waiting. First, about how the final results came - all entries that came to the final were given points in 3 categories: originality/personal style, use of stock and tehnic. We summed all the points and here are the results:

With almost maximum points the winner is:

Something old something new by JohndeLano by :iconjohndelano:

We just had nothing to say about this piece as this is just breathtaking, the artist has so original ideas, style and everything in that piece is just so outstanding.

And second place, not much behind:

No place for angels by Eil by :iconeil:

We loved her unique style, original stock choice and emotions.

And third place will go:

Sylph by minoukatze by :iconminoukatze:

The idea, the colors and hard work we can see behind this piece. Fantastic way how to use those flames.

Here they are:

*Mithgariel's:

when the rain falls... by pekthong by pekthong

"The concept, the colors, all the little details you can get lost in and that still make up one wholesome composition.... A lot of work and spirit went into this, I am most certain."

Galactic Mortal by inthename by inthename

"Truly eyecatching. I've loved it since I saw it. Great idea with great colors and out-of-ordinary composition. Truly unique."


*l6visyda's:

Wouldn't It Be Nice... by grane by grane

"When I saw it the first time, I just fell for it. I love they idea and stock chosen, as I am one of those people who do wonder - why that winter and snow couldn't just end. And I love when people use stock where I am :p "

The underworld of the Dream by tb-black by tb-black

"When I saw it.. I was just like - awww..  All those little fairies... I tried to count them all but I think I lost it in the middle of the progress... And how unique everyone is.. like every fairy has their own purpose and I just couldn't mention - that sad one and the one who is kindly ready to hug her - that just broke my heart. Fantastic ideas"


*Iardacil's

by greenfroggies

"The first moment - just fell in love with it as I love watercolors, so unique and standing out from all other entries"

Oberon and Titania by Taurina by Taurina

"Just the most carneval fairy piece I have seen. I totally love the idea of so many characters, all those colors and magic."

So, you think this is all? NO We have special awards too. Why we have those? As we just wanted to give special thanks for those who standed out for their style, medium. So, definately check those fantastic works:

The Traveler's VisitorsThe chips of spun sugar and diamond continued to float down across the barren landscape, making deep drifts of fallen stars. The frigid flakes had been falling for several hours, though their numbers had been decreasing steadily for some time. The sun in the northern sky could be seen nearing the horizon through what was left of the gray clouds. Night was approaching, and little stirred across the barren expanse of snow, save for a lone figure trudging its way determinedly over the unmarked landscape of white.
Covered by a black cloak from head to toe, little could be told about the intruder in this serene scene. They were armed with a dark, supple bow and a full quiver, and had the air of someone who was confident in their skills as an archer. They strode purposefully across the flat stretch of land, aiming for a line of snow-laden pine trees to the northwest. Their reason was clear: one would have to be insane to spend a night out on the flat land, open to the elements and any danger
by KeeperoftheRealms
