As you can see, the top five vote getters are Ninja (Moognation), The Reaper (AMS), Love is Always Win (Harlequin), SoulLessRedux (Iscarioto), and Witch Hunter (meniukas). Congratulations to all five of you! I’ll be doing my own interpretation of your characters as your prize, which is going to be very difficult in some of these cases as your style is so distinctive and awesome that doing anything different will be a challenge. But I’ll try!

Thanks again to everyone for showing off your artistic skills and for being a part of this community for one hundred challenge outings now. I hope you’ve had as much fun making your illustrations as I have had in seeing them. Now get out there and let your creative side flourish!
