Thanks for participating in the first ever drawing contest here on Parka Blogs. The response was better than I expected. There was a total of 46 participants and 57 entries. And thanks for all the messages sent.
In case you missed the contest (details), the theme is about animal(s) in a competitive sport environment.
The entries were fun and varied in style. Some were pretty thoughtful and detailed, created with lots of effort. Unfortunately, I can only choose one winner and the winner is...
Although I didn't state any criteria, this piece from Powree seems to have all the right elements with regards to the theme. I like the moment captured showing clearly the action, the expression on the puffin who's almost caught and the bulls colliding painfully. They even have uniforms and gear. Nice.
Congrats to Powree!

The second set of prize is for the winner with the most number of votes, or the most popular piece. In the case that both the winners are the same, I'll give the Set B prize to the second most popular (voted) illustration.
Everyone's allowed to vote. The voting box is just right below the last entry. You've got to sign in to vote and only 1 vote is counted.
Surprise, surprise. I've an additional prize for voters as well, it's a copy of Jose Lopez's 4:00 AM. Good luck!
Anyway, the reason why I had voting as well is because what I like may not be what the majority like.
