Announcing the winners of HPuterpop Fan Art contest!

Hi Gs,

The time has come. For 10 days, you guys have submitted artwork to my email for the HPuterpop Fan Art Contest. And now, I have chosen three winners…

Third Place

I debated myself about this quite a while, but I had to go with BlazingAngel123‘s icon – it’s just awesome. I love her style and how she made it a square ratio (which is half the work in this case!).

Second Place

I can’t help but make this second place: Spotted Dragon‘s pic is epic. I love the style, the line art, the color – it’s a good blend and just portrays my Poptropican well. Good job!

(and no, I have no regrets for making one of the PHB authors a winner :p)

First Place

The first prize goes to Muzzki! This piece shows my Poptropican (as well as some others) as I would imagine him. The colorful background and overall quality of the piece is to be expected from art by Muzzki, and this instance is no exception!

From the giant light bulb balloon and the overall whimsical feel to this piece, this is definitely my pick. And she even included a pic for my recent birthday!

Thanks to everyone who entered in this contest! I had so much fun receiving art – we got 18 pieces of art in whole – from people I never would have thought to make them! I didn’t expect this contest to be such a hit, but I’m glad it did! We may do something similar to this in the future.

For the winners, you can contact me at andrewwilesinfo@gmail.com describing what you want your profile picture to be. I’ve added the winning pics to three different profiles – on my WordPress, Google, and Gamepedia.

Read more for all the entries (I added my thoughts on each one!)

Note: You may need to click on the pictures to read the entire captions (my thoughts for each piece). This will also allow you to view each image enlarged!

If I missed anyone, I’m so sorry! Let me know in the comments.

TAFN.

    Wow, 2nd place? I was not expecting that at all… Thanks so much! 😀
    As of 1st place… I think that was what I would have picked too. Muzzki never disappoints! Blazing Angel as well! 😛
    Of course I also love all the other entries too. I think UiPE’s design is my favorite. XD

  2. slantedfish says:

    So many different art styles! As a collection, this looks pretty cool. 😀 Congratulations to Muzzki for winning – that really is a fantastic piece (or pieces, if the birthday gift is to be counted as well). :mrgreen:

  3. Ultimate iPad Expert says:

    Congrats to Muzzki, her submission is awesome. So much colors! 😀

    And everyone else’s is awesome as well! Glad to see everyone’s awesome talent. And I’m looking forward to more possible contests in the future, perhaps.

    Photobombing the winning entry’s avatar like a boss 😛

    As soon as I saw MuzzKi’s submission, I knew she would win. That girl’s got some talent!

  5. Hench Bot says:

    Hey HP, I made the blue pen drawing, can you change the name on there to just “Hench Bot” ? Thanks for hosting this awesome contest it was really fun!

  6. Slippery Raptor says:

    Congratulations to all of the winners and the participants! You all have made great artworks! I am impressed by how you managed to do HP’s avatar using different styles– realistic, cartoonish and more!

    I’m really excited to see more. (I wonder if I can do that on my birthday. 😉 )

  7. Hyper Gamer says:

    Congratulations to all the winners. There were many wonderful entries.

    HPuterpop: Not to disappoint you, but I am surprised you thought my art was made with GIMP. I actually made it with Paint. 🙂

    The second I saw Muzzki’s entry, I knew she was going to win. It’s a little “OMGCOLORSPLOSION”, but she’s obviously doing SOMETHING right. Those lightbulb balloons in particular look REALLY good, and I might have to take a page or two from her book in terms of coloring artwork (everything’s so PRETTY and SHINY and BRIGHT and AAAAAAA). ALL the winners did bang-up jobs, and I’m happy that you considered my entry. 🙂 You- or another PHB author- should definitely hold another fan art contest at some point; doing that was really fun.

    (… Even though my hand hurt like heck when I finished it. THE THINGS WE MUST SUFFER FOR ART.)

  9. PrimRose says:

    LOL I love the last one. My favorite is the one by Marianne. It’s really cool to see the “toads” (the first time I showed my mom poptropica she thought all the characters were toads) taken and drawn as what they might look like in real life.

  10. RocketPastel says:

    I knew it! One of my really good friends, Muzzki won! I am so happy for her! By the way Happy Birthday Andrew!!!!!!

What's popping, Poptropicans?
