  • @Temurzoa, I had finally assumed that you weren't competing...
  • @Ranshi922 Incorrect! You misunderestimate my laziness
  • @Corwinnn I am one day late, but I just finished my painting. Can I still submit or will it be void?
  • Muddy Highlands
    Just in case. Thanks

    If you'd like to trade your 3rd place prize for my 2nd place prize, I'd be down for it. I already own most of the playmats.

    I'm going to be starting up posting on my Instagram art account again soon. If you're interested, my art discussion here on the forums has all the info you need (and I'm @jd_artwork).
  • Congratulations to all of the winner!
  • Congrats to ALL the winners and especially everyone who posted their Artwork! This has become quite an event and we hope next year we continue to see more and more of you submitting your own Artwork on cards!!
  • Congratulations, everyone! I very much liked to participate, it encouraged me to draw once again!
  • Thank you for having this contest again guys, it was fun!

    I'd like to also mention to everyone that got involved and dropped their own artwork that it was awesome seeing your art and the cards they was made for coming to life for this contest. Hope to see more personal art cards like this contest was designed for from you guys even while we wait for the next art contest to drop. ;)
  • Congratulations everyone! I usually don’t like to show my artwork, but this contest encouraged me to do so!
  • Oops I almost forgot: Congratulations to the winners!

    Congrats to everyone that took the time to contribute art for this contest, even if that artist isn't the cardsmith the art they made was for :)
  • Super enjoyed all amazing cards and artworks! I wish there was a special award for traditional art, because digital art seem to have advantage. Maybe next time?
  • Nice work, everybody, and congratulations to the winners!
  • @Tomigon
    Ya! I think that it'd be cool if there were two categories next year with separate prizes and you could submit in either or both. It might also be easier to judge traditional and digital separately.
  • @Tomigon, while it was technically not supposed to have advantage, the problem is that the more polished digital art simply will look better. I think having two categories would be great.

    Congratulations to the winners and the honorable mentions!
  • We've agreed to do two separate categories next time...

    Stick Figures and then Everything Else...

  • You’ve definitely got a shot for stick figures @Corwinnn. Yours are some of the best ;)

    I've been doing ballpoint pen//colored pencil drawings of Kaladesh cards since I'm about to be running a dnd campaign on he plane. I missed the contest but if anyone wants to mess with some of the other ones dm me. Also ping me next year if there is a 3rd annual.
  • @brcien
    Amazing artworks! Sorry you missed the contest this time. We can't ping everyone so you have to check out the forums every August! XD
