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!

SubMariner Revolutions Ink by devgear
SubMariner Revolutions Ink
Found the prelim for the unused cover for Revolutions by Michael was a pretty loose sketch, so asked the very talented Harpokrates Jay A. De Foy to tighten up the lines and finish the details. He did a great job with it! I had this one pretty much finished shortly after he got the lines back to me, but have just been sitting on it and always adding and deleting lines, lol...figured I best get it here it is.
This was a tough one, because I never felt completely satisfied with my interpretation of Michael's great art, but do like the finished inks. A little loose and fast.
Download for 300dpi to color *Please read and follow my terms of use* Thanks!

Here is a look at the wip
