Hello members! Some of you may remember that we held a Halloween fanart contest of our mascot Chu the other month and after much decision we finally have our results!
Before we announce them we want to thank all those who entered and put the effort into joining the contest and creating these wonderful submissions. Despite not having many submissions we decided not to extend the contest as the quality was so high! We also want to thank the wonderful donators ~yupon*Tsvetka=Tsulalaa*mochimochiko*AmyAmateur~LivLaughLoveAnime%AnotherContestGroup~graffiti-blaze
who have made this contest extra special! <3
Now, without further delay here are our winners!First Place
There is so much that we loved about your submission we barely know where to begin! Overall we loved your style and brush technique, the flickers of light expressed in the use of three direct vertical lines across the painting is a really unique way of expression light and movement. The beautiful ambient light emitted from the pumpkin is cleverly picked up on her hair and outfit creating such a wonderful depth of colour. We also loved the outfit you designed for her, you really kept the theme of bows and lovely reminders of the original outfit in an entirely new halloween based scheme.
Congratulations on winning! We will contact you directly and we will also contact all the wonderful donators and let them know your prize!Runner Up
What we loved most about your entry was the fantastic rebirth of her halloween outfit. The use of bows is really consistent with her original outfit and has been used wonderfully in her new dress. We also really love the perspective of her broom with the handle pointing towards us so much that it looks like she could fly out of our screen! The background is also very spooky and Chu looks very mischievous! She must be doing more 'tricks' then 'treats' tonight!
Congratulations on winning the runner up prize! We will contact you directly and we will also contact all the wonderful donators and let them know your prize!Special Mentions
We have three special mentions all of which were also at a fantastic high standard and we're thrilled that you have won a special prize for your wonderful entry. In no particular order:
We love the movement in your drawing/lineart style particularly with the frills around the edge of her dress, and her hair and expression are so cute! We also loved how you adjusted the colours and added those sparkles as quite often traditional art looses its colour when transferred online- but you have made sure they are kept wonderfully vibrant and powerful! Congratulations on your entry we will contact you shortly and thank you for entering!
We love how detailed and how much effort has been made to create those wonderful soft shadows and gentle gradients on every aspect of the drawing! You must have a really keen eye and a lot of passion for producing such a highly polished result! We also really loved the way you have remade her outfit- the brown/orange striped bow is very clever and works really well with the lower dress part too. She is a very sweet and innocent Chu who most likely used her big cute eyes to lure in lots of sweets in that pumpkin bag! Congratulations on your entry we will contact you shortly and thank you for entering!
We really loved that you included her mascot chibi- she has the cutest face too! And her red dotted bow is adorable! We also love the attention to detail with the spooky bat wings, the black bows, the collar around her neck- there are so many wonderful ideas and we can really see her flying around at night looking for an adventure! Congratulations on your entry we will contact you shortly and thank you for entering!
Thank you everyone for your support, we were so lucky to have amazing entries, co-founder support and donators to make this another special and exciting contest! We look forward to the next one and congratulations to all the winners and entries!
