Special Guest Juror's Message

Congratulation to all of you! 

My winner is Johatan Cantero's Poseidon. It's a really fun design. Great shapes and proportions, love the the ideas he made for use of scale to have whales as tiny pets; it really made him feel more like a god and ruler of the oceans.

If I was a god of the sea, I would want whales to be my pets!

- Dean Heezen
