Now this is how it will work, I will NOTE each winner in Order of first to the runner ups. They will then select their number of prizes from the list, and I'll stroke them off, sending the remaining prizes to the next winner.PLEASE WAIT for me to send the note before you choose your prizes since some will likely be chosen by someone who won higher.
The judging was done as a marking sheet with a total of 10 criteria, plus an extra mark for each judge's favourite, which means the maximum amount of points a judge could give an image was 11.
There were 11 judges, so the maximum points any entry could get was 121.
All of the winning entries scored over 100
Now I want to express how extremely hard it was to go through every entry and judge them fairly based solely on criteria and not on skill or my experiences with the entrant. I was very impressed by numerous entries and I do wish I could give a prize to all, but I do not have the time to do so.
Now for what you really want!
First place goes to:
This piece definitely blew me away, being able to fit all of the avian characters into one image is a feat on it's own, but then putting them together in a scenery interacting while keeping everyone in character is well amazing.
Second place goes to:
Now giving me the Original painting had nothing to do with your placement for I was only one out of the 11 judges, but you definitely did a good job to be able to impress everyone so much! <3
Third place goes to:
The colours in this piece are very calm and beautiful. I love the atmospheric perspective going on, and how realistic the avians look.
Forth place goes to:
I know that traditionals can be a real pain in the backside, but TBB you totally pulled them off!
The colours are accurate and the characters look like they are supposed to! A very exceptional piece!
Firth place goes to:
For this I tried a couple ways for a tiebreaker but nothing seemed to work, so I decided to settle in for a tie. So congrats the both of you, because you both amazed and stumped all the judges on who should be in 5th (yes you both will get your full alloted prize choices)
