Wow! You guys really came out of hiding and revealed some awesome work for our HIDDEN contest! Thanks to all who took part!
This one was a tough concept to nail, but you guys really came through! We loved scrutinizing the images for all the hidden Easter eggs 😁🐣💕
With that, congrats to Ashley Moore, who took first place with her wolf in sheep's clothing!
Per Lee White, who judged the contest: "Ashley knocked it out of the park with this one. The composition technique of establishing a pattern and then breaking it is a very strong tool to design with and this showcases that. It hits the 'hidden' subject matter perfectly too! Then the technique is very consistent with stylized patterns and lovely calligraphic outlines. Great work Ashley!"
2nd place went to Nyrryl Cadiz, for her endearing campfire scene.
Here's Lee again: "Heartwarming image here by Nyrryl. Soft lighting and a great color balance are what drew me to this one. It looks like there is so much story here and it makes me want to know what happens next."
Holley Williamson took 3rd place with her creepy rendition of Hansel and Gretel.
"The stylization here and overall concept are working so well for this image. Holly created some great characters and then added that sneaky witch into the trees which is a great visual solution to 'hidden.'"
Lee also ended up picking 6 more illustrations as honorable mentions 😀🏆💕 Check 'em out (with his comments) below!
New contest for August to be announced soon😅
