And that’s it for this round of Artisan’s Contest. All entrants are encouraged to post their work elsewhere on the forum and present it, whether in army logs, a story & background thread (if the artwork have accompanying writing) or some other thread they might conjure up. :wink:

@a20t43c im using your drawing as wallpaper on my office pc xD do you have an HQ version? Ahahhaha

Thank you so much for all the votes! Bronze was very unexpected, since it was just a quick and shoddy doodle. We had so many great entries this time! Really fun competition.

@Oxymandias: You can use my all artwork and writings all you like whenever you feel like it. :smile:

@ATOM sends his regards and permission to use it as well.

@a20t43c is a great comedian artist. You can all find his gallery here on Deviantart.

The fable that goes along with my giant stomp doodle can be found here.


Great work every one :beer: Cheers to all you talented peeps!

Also a thanks to all the sponsors, that is a great range of prizes and if I said I was not jealous at all I would be a liar so I will not say that at all!

If only I could draw :sad:

Congrats all, great competition

@Zoddtheimmortal : I’ll cobble together a GH announcement when next I am home sufficiently long, and have energy. This weekend seems earmarked for carpentry, skiing and being play-slave for my stepsiblings.

Same goes for sending out prizes, it might take some more days.

Hint: Next contest… is a mirror. :smiley:


Sounds like it’ll be about vanilla dwarfs. ;p

Hmm if they did drawings on the old cdo, what was the next one?

Keep guessing. It’s a lot simpler than it might seem at first glance. :wink:

Besides, @a20t43c has updated his Field Test artwork. See if you can spot the miscreant!
