let me start by saying thank you to all of you for the amazing amount of support and enthusiasm for my otto and victoria fan art contest. there were over 200 entries ranging from line art to sculpture, photography to balloon art! i am honored, inspired and incredibly moved by the body of work. my job to pick just one winner was incredibly difficult. i thought long and hard about each piece and i am thrilled to announce the winner here:
congratulations to komorinight.deviantart.com/ on being the grand prize winner of the contest. they will be receiving a signed limited edition copy of my book including a hand drawn sketch! I chose this piece because of it's charm and story. it captures otto and victoria's friendship and i love the illustrative quality of the artist's unique style. the warm tone and rich color palette set the stage for a very heart warming scene.
now because there was soooooo much great art i have decided to showcase a few honorable mentions and i am happy to announce that they will be receiving a signed print as a token of my gratitude. i wish i could do more but for now have a look at these honorable mentions
this cosplay by s-t-a-r-gazer.deviantart.com/ shows that victoria can always rock a full length skirt and boots even at the beach!
otto and victoria in balloon form! BALLOONS!!!!! this very inventive piece by jolinnar.deviantart.com/ makes me smile!
this piece by tabbytooner.deviantart.com/ is so fun and includes a doctor who reference which always scores bonus points with me!
so if you see your piece here, message me with you address so i can mail out your prizes. i wish i could reward everyone because you have all awarded me with this tremendous tribute and i am forever grateful. please continue to stop by the ottoandvictoriafans.deviantart… group. i hope that it will continue to be a fun place to share art and ideas and you can be sure that there will be more contests in the future so keep submitting if the inspiration strikes. thank you!!!
