EDIT: HAVING TO INDIRECTLY SAY "YOU DON'T GET A PRIZE" TO EVERYONE WHO DIDN'T "WIN" IS THE WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD, WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. I WISH I WERE MADE OF TIME AND MONEY TO GIVE EVERYONE CASH AND ART.

Before you all skip down to see the results, I wanted to thank each and every participant for entering because I had no idea how wonderful a turnout this contest would be. It took my friend and I three days to narrow it down to three winners and two honorable mentions. It was so hard. I hated having to pick one above the other and only reward five people for it. 
That being said, I'm finally satisfied with our decision.

I've learnt a lot over the coarse of this contest, and I'm sorry I couldn't of done things better and that I planned things out a little bit more in hindsight. The next time  I host a contest I'll have a clear subject with all the materials needed for the contestants...and I'll add more prizes.

We judged the entries based on creativity with the subject matter provided and..."out of the box"-ness, I suppose? We sought creativity while keeping true to the characters, based on what reference I was able to give. Attention to detail was also a little thing we looked for. 

PLEASE GIVE A ROUND OF VIRTUAL APPLAUSE FOR ALL OF THE ENTRIES BECAUSE I'M KEEPING THEM ALL CLOSE TO MY HEART.

So without further ado, our winners:




First Place
CE - magic dogs by mr-tiaa
Ok, so I allowed a lot of free roam in this contest, because if ya'll wanted to do something different with my characters, I was all for it because if I let people draw what they like to make their experience any more enjoyable if I can, I know so much fun can come out of this.
It's been weeks since this has been uploaded and I still cannot stop raving about it. The entry is absolutely gorgeous, but to top that all off, the artist went into thorough description on their though process and there is so much thought going into it and it shows.
These guys are baby OCs, so their information is very limited, yet this entry captured what little there was and found ways to incorporate it fabulously for this twist on the characters. (I MEAN SERIOUSLY, Merle's rings around her collar and bits of greenery in Luca's coat wit his small scars. aND. Isaac. as a floofy. Spitz...you guys...)

BESIDES WHATS BETTER THAN WITCHES??? WITCH DOGS OFC THIS AU IS LAW THANK YOU GOOD NIGHT.

Second Place:

(CE): I Found You by The-Elusive-Caravan

Yes, I could tell from the thumbnail that I was going to like this one. However what surprised me was the attention and references to Kassian's backstory, which is still very conceptual and barely written out properly in itself. From the visual storytelling to the symbolism choices, I'm absolutely entranced by this. This entry is beautiful and invokes a very strong and deep emotion inside of me. There were a lot of very, very good Mattheus/Kassian pieces but this one stuck with me the most because it explains their story so well, without me ever fully explaining it all in one sitting before. (Which is probably something I should do sometime LOL)

Third Place:


Contest: Drawing in the night by Hell-Alka

I'm not going even to lie, I got chills looking at this one. I really liked having other peoples OCs with mine, and this particular one's atmosphere and story behind it created something stunningly beautiful. Hell is such a visual delight paired up with these celestial women, fits so well with their cosmic background. Like I feel like this could have happened within the story's lore. The mood, the lighting, the HAIR. Everything is spectacular. 


Honorable Mentions: (In which I force myself to pick ONLY two people to share well deserved reverence and affection. If I were made of money I'd be giving you ALL THE TOP CAPITAL.

Doesn't that sound pretty?    The night was quiet, calm. Tranquil. The cool air was soothing instead of biting, and stars shone brightly above their heads. The two of them had been gifted with clear skies and a pleasant temperature. The snow had melted over the week and, miraculously, the grass underneath breathed air once more.
    Jonathan glanced over at the boy that rested beside him. Kio was in his true form, his odd horn catching the starlight and glinting gently. The boy remained an oddity despite the time they spent together, from the purple hue of his skin to the abundance of cream-colored fur that grew along his body. Kio stroked the grass almost obsessively, apparently enjoying the feeling of it trailing between his fingers.
    “I never saw this stuff before, Jonathan.”
    Jonathan’s dark eyes switched from Kio’s hands to his bright blue-green gaze. Kio was staring at him, a blissful expression r
 
Everything about this is pure and good. This entry speaks to me on such a great level, becuase it uses characters that have such little development or backstory or even very many visual references at all (one of which doesn't even mcfreakin' exist on deviantART yet) and yet comes together with something so wonderfully and beautifully simple with said two inter-species buddos stargazing and everything about it is in-character and amazing and this current run-on sentence of mine is a little too run-on. I had a smile on my gosh darn face the entire time. 
KIO OBSESSING OVER THE ANOMALY THAT IS GRASS IS BOTH SO VERY TRUE AND VERY PERFECT.
It's so hard with literature entries because the way a person may write the thoughts and actions of characters that belong to others isn't always easy, but this fic is so awesome at using what little I provided and the author wrote it like they were in my own head psychonauhts style. What is this sorcery. I could go on and on about how I love the small little details about this ficlet, but its past my bed time.

CE: The Prince of the Moon by LABS107
Ok so not only is this just visually stunninnnnng but, the aesthetics are just perfect for the potm universe right down to the tendrils of magic. Beast!Kio is super A+ here as well. The after-effects give it such a dream-like quality. This isn't known to anyone but me, but the composition is actually VERY similar to an actual scene I had planned for this story. I get a big smile on my face whenever I see this. Which is often. ; D
Much love for this entry. I know you seemed a bit stressed over finishing it, but please believe me when I couldn't be happier over it. Everything is so magical and beautiful. Thank you so much.  :)


Once again, major thanks to everyone who entered.
So many people poured their hearts into their entries and it definitely shows. I wish I could award all of you.

Hey there, It looks like your background image for you "about" section isn't quite long enough for the content you've put in it! Just thought I'd bring that your attention so you can get that fixed as soon as possible!
