I generally save this folder for the best art I find, including pieces I like from friends. There's a lot of great artists out there who definitely deserve to be recognized. Keep up the good work, everyone!


Evening Magpie by Carcaneloce

The use of cool-tone colors in this piece is excellent. They are well-balanced, between the greens of the leaves and distant pine trees...

I love the use of color in this photo. Though the background is solid, the colors on the hummingbird and the branch make up for it. The...

This is overall a great photo! The balance of color here was captured very well: the yellows, blacks, white/off-whites, and browns of t...

Now that I'm done with the interview, it's high time I *finally* post the results for the contest.

:iconrainbow-cplz: :iconrainbow-oplz: :iconrainbow-nplz: :iconrainbow-tplz: :iconrainbow-eplz: :iconrainbow-splz: :iconrainbow-tplz:

I want to see YOUR interpretation of an impacting moment from 'Clans.' It can be your favorite moment, a sad moment, a happy moment, even a downright scary moment. It can be in visual art or literature, with any type of reasonable media. So, here are the rules:

1. If you have already done a fanart or writing piece, you may not resubmit it for this contest. We want to see something new. Variety is the spice of life, people :) (Smile)
2. You must give credit where credit is due. Don't go making a piece for this contest and then claim the characters etc. as your own. I doubt anyone in the loop would do that but still. It's wrong.
3. Though this contest is open to artistic license and individual style in actually visualizing what the characters and places look like, the event depicted must stay true to the story. In other words, don't have space aliens all of a sudden come down and abduct Blaze and Thirah while they're in the heat of battle.

Submissions will be assessed based on creativity in both interpretation and media used, artistic quality (to a limited degree; all skill levels are welcome), and character perspective.
This means:
- Visual art will be assessed on use of color, anatomy, value, portrayal of characters and landscapes
-Literature will be assessed on originality of story idea, context, and spelling and grammar (can't help myself on this one, sorry!! I really am a grammar nazi.)



Ok, so as far as points go, I'm prettymuch broke, and quite frankly I don't feel like setting up a donation pool begging for points only to redistribute them later. However, I still have a huge arsenal of art supplies and skill at my disposal, so I will do a bunch of art prizes.

1st place: A full-color, one-page comic featuring one of your own characters (please let me know what the storyline is), a B/W sketchdump including up to three of your characters, and a llama.

2nd place: A full-color, no-background, new reference sheet for one of your characters, a B/W sketchdump for one of your characters, and a llama.

3rd place: B/W sketchdump for one of your characters, including speech bubbles, and a llama.


I admit, from the entries I did see, it was very hard to choose the order. I honestly don't think I'm the best of judges here, but after mulling over it for a good two months, the winners are....

First Place Grawey211 Burning Blaze by Grawey211

Second Place davidfenton1 {Contest} Safe At Last by davidfenton1

Third Place (TIE) Tulmur95 EagleFlyte 'Clans' contest entryThe sun began to set on the Forest of Fangs, bathing the treetops in beautiful orange and red light. All appeared peaceful, but looks alone were deceiving. Perched on the tallest branch of a dead sycamore tree was a griffin, not just any griffin. He had experienced terrible things in his life which left him scarred emotionally, but did nothing to dampen his will. He had come to the forest searching for the one responsible for the deaths of his parents which he witnessed firsthand. His name was Blaze.
The same shadowy foe had also pinned the two local griffin clans against each other in a brutal and uncompromising war which had been going on for years. She was no ordinary foe, her name was Thirah, and Thirah was a vampire. She was responsible for the war, and all of the mysterious deaths around it. In order to keep the war going, she would lure adults and even young griffins away with her seductive charms and powerful illusions before proceeding to then kill them. Her tactics were savag

"Just a little faster, you almost got it!"

Riva flaps her wings until they burn, running into the wind then with it over and over until she collapses at her mother's feet. Pichan smiles down at her pup.
"You're flapping to hard, let the wind carry you."

"I can't do it, momma. Can we go home, please?"

"After you spend hours begging me to take you out here? Absolutely not!"

It had been months since the famine had ended and Riva was having trouble adjusting to all the greenery. She was hatched during the clan wars and knew nothing but famine and bloodshed ever since her early days, however now was a time of peace and with peace her mother could focus on teaching her pup to fly instead of spending her time searching for nonexistent food sources. Some changes came easier than others however…

"Just one more try, I'll give you a boost if you want."
Without hesitating, Pichan picks up her pup by the scruf


THANK YOU ALL FOR THE AMAZING ENTRIES!! Just let me know who/what you want in your prizes, and I will take it from there. The prizes may take a while considering my current job search situation, but they will be done in good time. I still have a good-sized list of drawings I've been meaning to get done too, so please pardon my dust as I incorporate the prizes into the mix!!

If you want a critique on your winning piece, please send me a note, and I can give it to you in private. I understand that the rules/guidelines and such have been updated more than once since the contest was announced, so I will keep that in mind in my feedback.

Thanks again for your wonderful support!!
