Wow, that was way more successful than I expected. To be honest, when I kicked things off I was crossing my fingers that we’d even get five entries at all, let alone that I’d see the kind of awesome work you all produced. Y’all really went above and beyond, which made choosing my five favorites here extra difficult. In the end, I tried to pick the ones that, as well as looking good, incorporated a lot of details either about the characters or the world, really capturing the spirit of the subjects. Also, thank you high school ACADEC for teaching me fancy art words like “capturing the spirit of the subjects.”
Now, I pass the onus of choosing a winner onto all of you, my readers. Below are the top five submissions as chosen by me, the one you select as the best will win a free signed copy of any book I offer, even the ones sold out or not publicly available. That’s right, I kept extra on hand just for this giveaway. As with other times we did this, feel free to comment and cheer on the ones you like, but no jeering the others. People worked hard on these and all of them came out great. Voting Ends Sunday night at 11:59 CST.
As a last note, if you all want to see me run more contests like this, toss ideas in the comments below. I had a lot of fun with it, and would definitely be open to similar endeavors.
