Caption Contest 51 Prize: Black Ant

After many many months, I have finally finished Danny Beaty's prize for winning Caption Contest 51, a custom black and white illustration of his character "Black Ant":

Here's the original HeroMachine version, just for a point of reference:

new-the-black-ant

As you can see, I changed up his armor and blasters quite a bit, and his helmet a lot, so we could get exactly what he was supposed to look like.

I also want to thank Danny publicly for being so patient while work on HM3 delayed the completion of his prize. Thanks Danny!

I am going to try my best to finish all of the outstanding contest prizes before New Year's. I doubt I can actually do it, but I'm going to try, darn it!

  1. Great Job on Black Ant. What program do you use so you can make these contest prizes?

  2. Well if it help, there is absolutely no rush on my prize for winning FNFs take your time, work on all the other prizes you have to work on and if it takes a while for you to get to it no problem!

  3. Real good job Jeff. No rush on the prizes, enjoy the Holidays.

  4. @Jeff: Excellent job!

  5. @the good Mr. Hebert: To be able to take an idea from your head and put it on paper is one thing; to take an idea from someone else’s head and put it on paper (as you did with the Black Ant and many other characters), well, that REALLY takes talent. You were right to up the armor; after all, every ant needs an exoskeleton. Thanks, and have a safe and happy New Year!

  6. When it comes to Jeff’s prizes, it has been my experience that the saying, “good things come to those who wait” really REALLY fits the situation. The pic looks great, Jeff. Hope you & your fam had a good Christmas and a happy New Year! ^_^
