Well, the results are in for the Elemental Contest #2: FIRE! A big thanks to everyone who entered, and to our volunteer judges: Vorgain, Thrawnie, and Nightstalker (who gave comments as well as ratings!). Maverick-Werewolf and myself were also on the judging panel.
Our winners can claim their prize at any time by shooting me a PM or an email and requesting their prize code. If you don't want your prize, you can choose to send it to someone else instead, such as the next runner up.
Without further ado, the results!:
Style: "Helexith Wrath Archer" and Dalton Westmoore: "Wulfgard: Wrath and Fire"
Comments for Style's Entry:
Scorp: A very early stand-out entry with awesome art and awesome Nova Refuge lore to boot. Original, interesting, and very cool - I love the design, and the idea of Mahlok archer assassins. The scene itself is well done too, with the flames under the feet and the broken moon in the background. Plenty of fire! One of my favorite entries. Excellent job!
Nightstalker: Kicking it off with some excellent style (that's my one that I get, if you see anymore bad puns you can boo me)! I really love the fire effects on the helmet and boots. Adding in the river of lava, which really looks like it is in motion, and the exploding volcano add more to the epic firey action! I also really like the attention to detail with the fire reflection in the boots. My only real criticism is that the armor on the shoulders and helmet kind of blend in with the background, and do not seem to pop as well as the sections that have fire. Overall, great entry though!
Comments for Dalton's Entry:
Scorp: Dang, I hope I don't seem biased toward the Wulfgard and Nova Refuge entries when I say this one is another of my favorites. Fortunately the other judges rated them the highest too! This is an awesome depiction of the opening scene of Knightfall, and so accurate. I like the fact that the flames are not only in the background, but also separating Corben and Victor from Drake. It adds depth compared to your Water contest entry. Nice!
Nightstalker: I feel like someone went ham with fire. This is filled with all sorts of fire that is doing something. More importantly, you even took the time to have it reflect off of the characters. The demon looks pretty darn fierce as well! I especially like that the demon's mouth appears to be getting ready to spit hot fire (insert Dylan reference here). Anyways, this is just filled with action and really captures your inner pyromaniac! Nice Work!
Scorp: Nice work here! Very creepy. The art style reminds me of something, but I can't put my finger on it. But I like it! Well done.
Nightstalker: This is pretty neat. I know you ripped on your myth making, but I feel like it is the start of something. This guy is engulfed in fire and has a nice spooky look to him. The fire in the skull effect is a nice touch.
