Looks like I have only 7 entries to judge. While it was to be expected on my part, it's still disappointing that I had more participants but owing to whatever circumstances, they were not able to or chose not to submit their entries. Anyways, I will now announce the winners.
Before I decide on the 1st Place winner, I'll say this much. It was very hard to choose one of two entries that I thought were both stunningly wonderful. And before I go over who won anything, please bear with me. If you did not win anything, you still have my sincerest thanks for participating and your entry will still be seen in my game idea's eventual final version, which may or may not take years to complete. If you're interested, show me your support and that you have my back and I'll be filled with motivation. With that said, here are the results.
The contest's grand prize winner is ZinniaKet for the submission of this beautiful flower girl. She's nicely detailed, well designed, and of course very creative. The one snag is that she doesn't have a name and I would very much appreciate one. So, ZinniaKet, you have the privilege of three free requests, meaning whatever you would like me to draw, I will do it for free.
The contest's first runner-up is Official-JSP for presenting this powerfully creative character, Averic DeVekara. Very nicely done and menacing behind the mask, I may even consider him to be an RPG battle tutorial character. Now I agreed to see to it that these characters are just cameos in Rune Town's tavern, but there's a chance I'll respect any wishes of the character designers, depending on if they ask for anything more or less. So, Official-JSP, I will allow you to make one request free of charge. Whatever you want me to draw, I will do it for you. And because you are a member of
, it can be anything and not necessarily from my 2D Game Art Commissions list.
The contest's 3rd Place winner is YoumuNepLowell for this creative character, Yuuki Naomi. Yes, she was created using the online program Kisekae, but I did say I would not overlook Kisekae and I allowed the participants to use it if necessary. And she still looks awesome. So, YoumuNepLowell, you get one free request, but it must be from my 2D Game Art Commissions journal, regardless of membership. This was clearly stated, so I trust the participants knew this ahead of time.
The character SigilHero created with Kisekae is very cute and the character BlueWader made with Kisekae gives an interesting spin by appearing to be a martial artist. Every winner, runner-up, and honorable mention will now have the option to become a Contributor of my group,
, as I award the privilege to those who are capable of giving something to my dream game idea. And it looks like a few participants already are and I understand that some of you might not be up to it, so feel free to consult with me if you'd like something else within reason.
So again, to all who participated, thank you very much! These seven characters will be currently set to appear in Rune Town's tavern as NPC cameos and possibly a little more, if the participants may or not wish it. Please continue to show your support as I continue my game design as the years go by.
