I also want to do a quick honourable mentions to one particular artist who stood out to me in the final decisions for the contest winners. deruku's 'Me, and a Cupcake' piece was an excellent addition to the contest, when I was checking around the galleries of the entrants to the contest, she had a process listed on her blog about how she got to the final piece, including photos until she ended up there. I know I wasn't able to award a prize to her, but this is what art is all about, learning and evolving, and I wanted to make sure you checked out some more of her art too and watched out for her in the future!
Amazing work deruku
Thank you for making this contest possible and amazing!
I will be running another contest very soon and I have a few ideas, so if you liked this contest, check back with me and see the new contest posted! Now I have some ideas for the next one, but if you have any thoughts about what the next contest should be, post them and we will try to get them going!
