I'm happy HBS made the Honorable Mentions! I'm really proud of how that piece came out.

I might be a wee bit biased, but yours is number one in my eyes!

The whole field of entries was really good and hopefully the turnout inspired many others to take up the paints to bring a larger field of inspiration next time!

I'm really impressed with how well your "speckled" technique comes out.

Awesome.

Justifiably so - it looks great. I love the fade to the lighter "belly" color.

Fantastic job.

Ha! I honestly hadn't considered that.

What I love most is that each of the winners of the photo portion used a different technique. Richard painstakingly cut out tiny stencils and painted with an airbrush. Cat does some sort of dark magic with spray cans. Jean-Francois went with careful shading. And I built up layers with washes and drybrushing. There's no one "best" way to paint; just do whatever feels most comfortable to you, and the results can be surprising.

Yuppers! I've always been a huge fan of 'do whatever works for you' style of painting rather than going by somebody else's book>

Good thing I wasn't judging this. I would've bashed my head against the wall trying to decide. They all look excellent to me.
