Special Guest Juror's Message

It was an honor for us both to be guest jurors on last month's Character Design Challenge. There was so many submissions to go through. Over a thousand!!! It's exciting to see so many artists participate and share their work. Truly inspiring.

After going through all the submissions (several times), we ended with a list of about a dozen. From the dozen, we selected two pieces that stood out for their execution, simplicity and personality, the artworks submitted by Bastien Bibouse and Seoro Oh. Congratulations to all the winners! And also to everyone who took time, energy and passion to participate. We look forward to follow the upcoming challenges and the incredible variety and talent of everyone involved. You keep us both inspired and motivated! Thank you. 

And last, thank you to CDR Team for letting us be Guest Jurors of this challenge.

- Griz and Norm
