Character Design Challenge #184- Shocking! – Results

Well this was a tough one. Very hard to whittle these entries down this week, and I have changed my mind half a dozen times already, and will undoubtedly again after posting this! So here goes nothing...

Honorable mention go to Cliff's Thor and Worf''s Lightning Girl.



And this week's win goes to Xinmodic's Living Bolt. Great use of colour although I would be interested to see it with less...if But it is certainly effective.

Thanks to all who entered.

Character Design Challenge #183- It’s In The Cards – Results

Honorable Mentions: Cliff - Magician and Xinmodic - Fool


Xinmodic- The Fool_zpsnsrhaizt

And this week's winner is...JR19759's Hanged Man. Love the simplicity of the palette and the overall creepiness.


Thanks to all who entered.

Character Design Challenge #182- Walk Like An Egyptian – Results

Honourable Mentions: Xinmodic, Hawk007 and Candruth.

Xinmodic- Seshat_zpspfshtm46



And this week's winner...Cliff

Cliff_Walk Like An Egyptian_Bast_zpst8yrnlin

This was a tough decision, but I think what put Cliff on top this week was the way he mirrored details of her jewelry / accessories in both her transformed, and non-transformed self. The character's story was clearly evident even without the the accompanying description.

Well done you!

Friday Night Fights: Winner

Ok, the votes are in, the poll is closed and we have a winner. I pretty sure nobody would have called the finalist we had, let alone the winner, before this contest started, but both contestants fought hard to get to the final, one being the underdog facing off against and beating some of the favourites to win, whilst the other acted as the dark horse, quietly winning through each round by fairly decent margins. However, out of the two, there can only be one winner. And that winner is Vampyrist. Congratulations Vamp, there would be a trophy or something but I kinda forgot to get it engraved, so you'll have to make do with a round of applause.

Anyway, so as to immortalise his win for posterity, here are all of Vampyrists entries for the FNF contest.

Round 1 (Modern)- James Bellamy


Round 2 (Fantasy)- Jared Karkarran


Round 3 (Sci-fi)- Dryk


Round 4 (Superhero)- Cobalt
