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 :)

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.

SeanE asked if I could ink up a very cool image by DmitryGrebenkov of a mercenary for a tutorial in an upcoming book to be released by
Dmitry usually paints his finished work, so I believe these were his digital pencils. This was a lot of fun to do and was super pleased to be a part of the project :)

Hi guys.....finally got this one scanned tonight! I absolutely love ebas art. The detail in this one was mind blowing.
This is an older cover from the Magdalena series, but I do love the character and this one was too cool to pass up :)
Inked with a .1 Micron. Pentel brush pen for fills. Molotow white acrylic paint pen for clean up.

Looks finished...but not quite yet! Still lots more details and clean up... :)

See my Instagram for a little video action…

I know this is an old one....but I do love the character and ebas artwork :)
I did look thru your gallery SeanE and saw you colored this one back in 2008...but...maybe a revist ;)
I like this one in the details!
