Congratulations to Hadrien Bonnet, Johannes Helgeson, Vincent Gallut and to Céline Lys, the Special Guest Juror’s Choice this month! Thank you so much to ALL the artists of our community who have submitted their work for this challenge, to Wouter Tulp (read his message below) for accepting to be our juror this month, and to Character Design Quarterly, the official partner of the CDChallenge, which makes this project possible.
Special Guest Juror's Message
I am truly honoured to have the opportunity to be a guest juror for this challenge.
It takes courage to post the art that you created and put your heart and soul into online, for others to judge. Personally I believe art is no contest. We are all individuals, with our personal means to express ourselves. I have enjoyed looking at all of your entries, and I take my hat off for all of you.
Still it my task to pick a winner. After looking at all of the entries, I turned off my computer. There was one illustration that stuck in my mind. I think I like it so much because the artist has made strong design choices, beautiful colouring, and appealing shapes.
