Hey guys! I apologize for the delay in getting the results posted....I was thinking there might be more art to throw into the pot as a prize. Unfortunately, the page couldn't be found.
Firstly, I want to thank DerekRodenbeck for letting me ink his lines and use them for the coloring contest.
A huge thanks for everyone that took the time to color and entering this year! I appreciate every skill level...and there were quite a few great entries.

I changed things up a bit this year, and wanted to have the prizes allotted by best color, rather than a random draw. So to do this, I asked SeanE to be the guest judge to help me choose the winners.

A big thanks to you, Sean, for your help! :)

So without further waiting, here are the results!

1st place:
Lady Mechanika By Derek and Devgear by Kristherion
Christian's colors are bold and rich. Very nice rendering of depth with the color.
I will be sending the original inked page.
Also, I will make a small limited print run of this to share with Christian and Derek.

2nd place:
Lady Mechanika colors by nahp75
Stephan used his unique style and talent to make this one look great. Adding the BG elements and Logo really set this apart.
A years DA membership or DA points matching the same amount.

3rd place:
Lady Mechanika Colors by roncolors
Ron made a very cool color and the lighting element looks pretty sweet.
A years DA membership or DA points matching the same amount.

This was a great contest and was great to see all the colored entries! I really wish I could give everyone a prize. Thank you all very much for participating and I will most likely make another giveaway this Christmas :)

See all the color entries in my previous journal

Check out my older inks in my gallery to see how bad I was, lol ;) But, as I mentioned, a desire to better myself and practice definitely helped!
Through my growing process, I have always made hi-res inks available for colorists to practice on. If you find my inking something you wish to use for color practice, please do :D Just be sure to see my Terms of Use below. Crediting the artist involved is very important.

Princess Leia by devgear
Princess Leia
TerryDodson and Rachel Dodson have been working on the new Princess Leia books out from Marvel. The art and story is great...My first time reading a Star Wars comic. Worth picking up.
I met Terry a couple years back at the Calgary Con and really enjoyed getting to know him. Love his art and wanted to ink something by him again :)
Worked this one pretty fast last night...wasn't sure if I was gonna pull it off, lol. Happy with how it turned out tho :) The finished cover is slightly different from the original lines, so did borrow a bit from it to help translate Terry's lines.
Colorists, download for 300dpi *Please read and follow my terms of use* Thanks!
