Some super great entries this time!
September was Premier Artist Festival Month at Daz3D!! In celebration of PA month, we doubled the number of vendors in the September 2015 contest, as well as doubled the prizes. There were two sets of prizes awarded – one around the 20th of the month and another at the usual time in the beginning of October.
Here are the winners for both rounds of the September Vendor Contest. Congratulations to the winners and hope everyone enjoyed the Vendor Festival at DAZ. I know my wallet is a lot thinner because of it! 😀
September 2015 Contest Vendors
Round 2 Winners
1st Place – Rules
Artist – Shozai
Such a beautiful detailed piece, full of character and charm. One cannot help but feel lifted by the antics of the animals in the image. Wonderful use of Design Anvil’s Old Oak Tree as well as Grass and Plants to create this magical environment. Great colors, fantastic poses, and an overall awesome composition!
Here are a few more captivating images by Shozai. If you have not visited her gallery, I highly recommend it! 😀
2nd Place – Dragon Cove
Artist – EmotionalOutlet
Dragons playing with crabs. 😀 Just gotta love this!
The pose of the main dragon is perfect to convey playfulness, a bit of uncertainty, and youth. It is often difficult to capture emotion, tell an interesting story, and evoke a strong positive reaction from the viewer. This image gets an A+ in all three!
Awesomely creative and great use of First Bastion’s wonderful environment.
3rd Place – Wingless Dragon Haven
Artist – Penne’s From Heaven
Another creative composition that beautifully captures the bond between human and non-human. The dragon having his head scratched, has absolutely the best expression. You can almost hear her purring. Great combination of Ignis Serpentus’ Prisoner Of War outfit and RawArt’s Asian Dragon.
Superb application of blood on not just the main character, but also on the table, walls, and the little scary implements. Masterful work!
Great story-telling and expressions. Love it!
Excellent rain effects, lighting, and expression. All work together well to convey the mood of the piece. The added red from the Fantasy Cloth Wrap by Shifting Images is a great touch.
Stunning pin-up! Great use of lights and materials.
Round 1 Winners
1st Place – Invasion Earth Failed
Artist – reserv888
Wow! Absolutely love this piece. Very cool composition, the light on water and reflections look awesome, the materials are great, and it shows off First Bastion’s Secluded Shoreline to great effect.
Really hope there is a First Bastion sale soon, because he has some really great environments.
2nd Place – Going Dark
Artist – Storypilot
Always love the light and atmosphere in your pieces. Great combination of multiple outfits from Shifting Images, and wonderful how you converted the sword into a light-saber! 😀
3rd Place – The Art of Dance
Artist – freespinner
Awesome pose and great use of light to accentuate the shape of Fred and Sabby’s Dayna figure. Especially love the attention to detail on how the fabric drapes over her body.
Beautiful composition showcasing two big favorites of mine – Dragon’s Tor and Black Dragon by Design Anvil. Love how the baby dragon is coming out of the egg, as the proud mother watches and protects. Awesome!
Congrats and thank you all for participating!!
