Journal Entry: Thu Nov 28, 2013, 5:40 PM

First of all thankyou to everyone who entered the contest, there we so many fantastic entries and we had a real hard time choosing the winners.  It was
really amazing and an honour to see my character drawn by so many people and in so many different styles.

CE: Ophia by xadako

This entry really stood out for us, it was clear from looking at it that the artist really considered Ophia's story when creating their entry.  We loved the contrast between the 
warmness of the colours and Ophia's sadness and body language.  The background is really what caught my eye's and we loved how the windows gave a caged bird feel to the atmosphere.

... Speech Bubble by socksyy  Second Place ---> :iconbluefly-shi:

CE: Sleeping Bird : Ohpia Dumont by BlueFly-shi

Both Sprucie and I loved the concept behind this drawing and the dramatic lighting in the piece really helped bring it to life.  The use of colours in this really 
complimented Ophia's colour palette and we could really feel that the artist tried to understand Ophia's life.

Ophia -contest- by EK9000

Probably one of my personal favourite entries in the contest, the artist really nailed Ophia's character and the composition is gorgeous.  Both Sprucie and I loved how the artist transitioned the 
different seasons into the artwork.  Her veil becoming winter, the bottom of her winter dress becomes a cloudy sky and so on.

:bulletwhite:  Best Character Emotion  ---> :iconinkdrawndreamer:

.:Happier Times:. by InkDrawnDreamer

Their were so many great entries that showed fantastic character emotion and we really struggled to decided.  What we really loved about this entry was how much thought the 
artist put into Ophia's backstory and we loved the contrast between her happier memories and her present situation. 

:bulletwhite:  Best Background ---> :iconumsaynaia:

After the storm - Ophia Contest by umsaYnaia 

Overall this is a very well done piece.  We really loved how Ophia feels integrated in the environment which looks amazing and I really feel the fantasy and magic of it.  The 
birds were a gorgeous addition and really complimented Ophia's colour palette. 

:bulletwhite:  Most Unique ---> :iconbaflee: 

Before A Sleep by Baflee

Another really hard place to decide as there were so many amazing and different styles.  What made this one stand out was the fact that the artist used little to no shading yet this is 
probably one of the most pretty pieces to look at.  This really impressed us along with the beautiful colour choices and the love and interaction between Ophia and Nana.

:bulletwhite:  Cutest Artwork ---> :iconfafeapplepie:
Ophia : Drawing contest by Fafeapplepie
Gosh there were so many cute entries and after some deliberation we finally decided on this adorable piece.  The "Kawaii" style and petiteness of Ophia really caught our eyes along with 
how well the artist handled Ophia's colour palette.  Nana also looks really cute in this and we loved how she is looking up at Ophia.
