Hello art lovers!
After much deliberation, we have determined the winners of the Legacy of Kain art contest! Many thanks to all that entered. The judges from the Defiance team told me it was really hard to pick the winners, all of the art was fantastic.
So without further hesitation, here are the winners:

First place goes to Zombie for “Kain and Raziel kicking some Hylden butt”:

Congratulations to everyone! Many thanks to Christopher, Umah and the Defiance team for your time to put on this contest and judge all the entries. I was personally thrilled to death that there were people at Crystal Dynamics who were actually looking at something we "fans" created! So in that respect, we are all winners. A very humbling and enjoyable experience. :D

I think I'm still in shock.:eek:

Thank you so much! I'm planning to display that baby in my art studio proudly. Also, as others have mentioned, thanks to all who were involved with the contest.

It's still hard to believe I won. The competition from all the great artists here was unbelievable! Everyone did such an amazing job. :) Contest or not, lets keep filling the comm. art gallery thread, because it was such a thrill to see so many works. More, more, more!

Later, Z

Thanks to Chris, Umah, and everyone else who helped out with the contest. I can't believe all the talent that was put into this one! I don't know HOW you all managed to pick winners out of all of the entries! Thank you! You pulled me out of a dreadful artist's block. :D
I'd dance if I weren't dead certain It'd kill me. :p

We typically run two contests per year. (As that is all that our schedules allow). Don't be too discouraged. It gives you time to sweat it out over what devious scheme we're going to subject you to. Muhahahhaha. ;)

I'm afraid there's been a misunderstanding here. There's not a "second chance" with regard to art (unless you count next year as being that second chance). We run two contests, one is an art contest and the other is undisclosed at this time. I can tell you that it's not an art contest and it's not a fiction contest (as it was in the past).

No art and no fiction? What could it be then? Poems?

Congratulations to everyone who entered, whether you won or not. Having talent like that is rewarding enough, so you're all winners:D . Hmmm... not art, not fiction, not poetry... I wonder what it could be. If I'm not drowning in work in October, I'll definitely check it out:) . Oh! It's not a "who can best portray a LOK character for Halloween" contest, is it?

No it's not. You can guess all you want, but you're still going to have to wait until October. :)

I wouldn't bet a lot of money on that if I were you. :p

I must say, the guesses are proving to be very amusing. ;)

You know what. I was in the shower earlier and started thinking about this. I bet it will be a character CREATION contest. They want a new character in the series and they want us to make it!

I'm afraid the "puppy dog" routine doesn't fly with me, although I suppose I will tell you though:

in October when we have the contest.
