June 2016 Contest Vendors
1st Place – Little Cheater
Artist – knaakie
This series of images with the Hob Goblin is just crazy funny. The judges had a difficult time picking a favorite and so did I!
I finally settled on this one which has marvelous story-telling, action, expressive poses, and depth. The image captures everything so well that no additional text is needed. In addition, the main character comes through as very lovable even though he is a rogue. 🙂
It is rare to see an image that is so naturally and eloquently posed. It makes an already great image into an excellent one. You definitely want to check out more of your favorite Hob Goblin adventures here!
2nd Place – Some Enchanted Evening
Artist – Areyna
This looks like a book cover!
The fantastic colors and lighting quickly grabbed my attention, and the awesome characters held it. Especially love the glow on both their hair, and the incredible romantic setting.
Her come-hither look and great details like his gold chain and cigarette, make this into another outstanding story-telling piece. I would definitely buy this book!
In addition, Kalea looks lovely here, so it would also make an amazing promo image.
3rd Place – Blackbird Tattoo
Artist – Kismet2012
What a terrific concept!
The tattoo is excellent. I like that it is a bit faded, which makes it blend naturally and realistically with her skin. Pose, jewelry, and hair, complements the tattoo perfectly, showing both grace and beauty. In addition, skillful use of blue in the jewels, background, and lighting, further enhances the picture and brings out the blue of her eyes.
An exquisite portrait, with many interesting elements, all of which are working in harmony to express elegance and style. This would have made another great promo image of Kalea.
3rd Place – Thinking
Artist – liquidsnake4ch
I was immediately drawn to the beautiful angel with radiant wings. She seems vulnerable, pensive, and a bit sad.
DM’s Grotto looks exceptionally fine here. The materials and lighting are perfect, and it complements the angel marvelously. Both cross and structure contributes to the mood of the piece, but doesn’t compete with the primary figure. I especially like how the cross shows in-between her wings.
Finally, the tilt of the camera provides further artistry and creates an overall fantastic image.
What strikes me first about this image is the superb framing and camera angle. The borders of the image wraps around DM’s Elder Rock, and the rocks perfectly wrap around the figure. The sharp bottom-up angle of the camera differentiates the image, and the little bird balancing on his finger finishes the piece off with balance and finesse.
Brilliant composition and camera work.
Love the combination of outfits to create something totally unique and creative. The hair also fits the ensemble very well, and everything fits splendidly with the beautiful background. Great combination of cool colors with her warmer hair and skin. This is all topped off by the cool energy ball effects around her hands.
Incredible character and colors.
Wonderful feature of DM’s FIT ‘n SEXY Outfit. I like how the colors of her hair and outfit fit with the colors in the background. Also great glow on the figures’ hair.
Definitely a cool looking duo.
Who doesn’t love a cute ninja cat girl!
Just a fabulous character and terrific feature of DM’s Sensual Aiko 6 – II poses. Love the depth of the scene and the subtle warm highlights on the girl and dagger.
Many Thanks and Big Congratulations!!
