Hi everyone! I'm sure most of your reading this are waiting for the contest results, so lets get right into it.
The winners of the Art Contest are...
I simply can't favorite this image enough! What's funny is, there was a brief time in HS when I was SO into Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 that I ran out, bought a board, and inflicted several monumentally hilarious injuries upon my person while listening to "Not The Same" by Bodyjar. At least my pony doesn't appear to have inherited my complete lack of coordination!
My goodness, is there ANY way I could not pick this image? This is exactly how I feel right now as I prepare for Everfree NW, right down! Well, with the exception that I have no delicious waffle. Seriously though, this image is epic and will be printed out and hung on the wall of my office with the utmost pride!
If you're one of the art winners, please send me a note or comment on this post letting me know which posters you would prefer out of the four options.
Now...here's the problem. I loved, and I mean LOVED every single piece of art submitted to me. It means the world that everyone who entered took the time to draw my pony for me and to come up with such amazingly awesome and creative concepts around her!
So, in order to show a little more appreciation, I extended the prizes a bit and gave premium memberships to the creators of the following deviations-
Honorable Mentions (in no specific order)
As someone who loves loves LOVES detail, I love, love LOVE this image! The true adventures of Pixel Pony as she travels the world in search of the finest refreshment? Bonus points for random nacho!
I really want to see all those little photos in detail sometime!
I've always loved Velgarn's sense of humor, and I'm so excited that he decided to immortalize me in comic form- and in the style of Conan/Grognak the Barbarian(s) no less! I would lament the fact Trixie doesn't seem to appreciate her heroic rescue...but then she wouldn't be Trixie, after all.
I cannot look at this image without laughing! This was a bit of a rough week, in the same way 60 grit sandpaper is also a bit rough, but every time I looked at this pic, specifically the expressions, I couldn't help but feel better!
Honestly, I wish I could give something to everyone. With all sincerity, I want everyone to know how much I appreciate your time and creativity. You are all incredibly talented and impressive artists, and great friends as well! Thank you!
For the raffle side of the contest, I have responded to the two winners.
Now, the only downside is I may not be able to get the posters, or rather who wants what posters, organized and sent out until after Everfree Northwest this weekend. So expect them to hit the mail, at the latest, early next week.
Thanks again, everyone. I REALLY hope you had fun with the contest!
