Congrats to Severin Baschung, winner of our MerMay contest! There were so many fun and creative submissions, it was hard to narrow it down. We had more than 80 entries! Thanks to everyone for playing 😀
Severin's piece stood out for its winning combination of concept and execution. Per Lee White Illustration, who judged the contest, "I loved the concept on this one so much. It was very creative and technically solid as well."
Second runner up was lilyhosegood, who submitted the lovely image below. Here's Lee again, "This piece was so beautifully painted. I love the light and the drawing is gorgeous too!"
Lee ended up picking 8 more illustrations as honorable mentions as well 😀 Check out all work below:
