now that that's over, congrats and thankyou so much for everyone who entered i love all your wallpapers, and i hope no one's disappointed because i tried really hard ^_^; but i can't make everyone win a prize. i'm sure i'll have more contests later
if you won a prize, here's what you should do-
if you won a journal feature, you can note me and link to a picture and i'll feature it in my next journal
if you won a art request, note me and tell me what you want me to draw.
if you decide you want a print request, note me with your address and a link to a picture in my gallery and i'll send you the print
thankyou again! i have to go to dinner now
one of my friends pointed this one out to me as a potential winner, and this picture, the more i looked at it, the more amazing it was. you HAVE to download it to see the fullview. the details and brushes and designs are so amazing the words and the dragon fit the walllpaper so well. congrats to sha-rona and everyone else for a fantastic contest.
this picture almost won the grand prize and viewer's choice too! it's so simple but striking, i love the designs, and the boxes are really well done. everything fits really well in this picture, and i'm really happy to give it 1st place.
the grand prize winner is next
2nd place - tie

this is another tie... i just couldn't decide between these two spawnofhell's has really beautiful brushwork and is so pretty and soft to look at overall, lumiec's is really really pretty too with wonderful designs and both used text really well.
viewer's choice - tie

everyone who watched the viewer's choice i think saw that the voting was SO close @_@ the winner was only 2 ahead! so i decided to just give both of the entries the award they are so different and awesome. these entries had also won other awards too but bc they won viewer's choice, then they could only win one
before the big prizes, i'm going to announce the honorable mentions. these were entries that really stood out to me but i could find a way to fit them into categories, but i really wanted everyone to see them too! so here there are
congrats to all the winners so far
best lost reflection
this was also a viewer's choice finalist i got so many lost reflection entries that were really awesome, but this one just stood out.
