This was our first art contest hosted via Instagram and DeviantArt. The theme was Summer Fun and we received 98 entries from many talented artists. We’re humbled by the support the community has shown us and we have plans on hosting similar contests in the future. Below are the contest winners and honorable mentions!
We love this piece by MurMoruno. She really captures the contest theme and shows off her technical ability. Congratulations! ツ
In particular, we liked her serious facial expression. The bikini design is also really cute. The vibrant colors of the flowers surrounding her hat really make this picture pop.
This illustration by Nihmei left us speechless. It’s so graceful and captures a single moment in time really well. It’s evident that she put a lot of thought into the design and setting with diligent work on every detail. It’s just such a beautiful scene, and we’re so happy with the final result.
3rd place was closely contested and was ultimately given to foxykuro for her amazing attention to detail on Rina’s body. She looks so elegant relaxing by the shore and we’re really impressed with her entry ツ
