I received 24 beautiful entries this year, and as always, deciding who would win was a painful process. Luckily, this year I could choose two winners, and here they are!

The first place: Alicja from Poland:

The second place: Afley from Canada:

I’ve already contacted the winners, and both Alicja and Afley should receive their prizes soon—a Wacom One tablet, and a license for Sketchbook Pro, courtesy of this year’s sponsors, Wacom and Sketchbook.

If you’ve participated in the contest, and now you’re bummed that you didn’t win, remember not to compare yourself to the winners—I can assure you that there was nothing wrong with your artwork! I could choose only two winners, which means I had to reject the others—there’s just no other way to do that 🙁

Keep in mind that I’ve been doing this contest for 7 years, so it’s very likely I’ll do it again next year—so you’ll have another chance!
