It's finally time for all the fanarts, eek! Without further ado, let's start with the winners! (click on the image links to view the full pictures):
Concratulations Cheppoly, you woooon! (Link to Cheppoly's Tumblr page). Cheppoly has managed to do something I haven't been able to do, which is to draw pretty much all the characters in the comic in one single shot. I admire that so much, because personally I get really intimidated and kind of paralyzed when fazed with the task of drawing more than half a dozen characters at once. And they all look so awesome, look at Tuomi's bunny-shirt! I seriously could have declared this piece a winner just because of that bunny-shirt, awww! This image simply makes me happy. ;_;
Then to the honorary mentions! I ended up picking 6 of them and they'll all be included in the book (granting that the artists are okay with it) alongside the three winners. I'll probably have to print them as half-pages to make them fit in with all the other extra content in the book. Frankly there was like half a dozen more entries that I really wanted to give honorary mentions to, but I had to draw the line somewhere, aww. These six made the cut this time, congrats guys!
I'll email all of you winners and honorary mentions today! Aaaand below are the rest of the lovely entries! Some of them were just submitted as normal fanart and not for the contest, like the awesome jewelry done by OrigamiOwl that's included at the bottom there. By the way, leave a comment or send a quick email if you find any errors here! I got over 130 fanart submissions, which is a crazy amount and way more than I had accounted for or was able to handle properly, so I'll be surprised if I haven't misspelled at least a few names or forgotten some links in the credits. I spent almost 10 hours yesterday handling these and at some point my brain kind of died and I dropped all the balls. So sorry in advance, I'll fix any errors as soon as I can. But right now I'm going back to bed for a while, I didn't really get any sleep last night and I can't draw very well with my brain all messed up. But you guys have fun with these while I get some shut-eye:
Aaaand some fan-poems: ---link--. It's still missing some of Mikko's poems, I totally ran out of energy before I could finish adding the rest of them. I'll include more after resting. So...yaaaay, fanstuff! And I'm off to bed again, bye!
