I gravitated to this one because the overall tone is dark and appropriate. I didn't make the cut, but that I was late, by thirty or so minutes, in finding the place to post it, didn't help. You also employed the use of the mansion in the design, which I also did, but in a more diminished, visual hierarchy. I hope you win this one. You've got consummate skills.
In my opinion, this, and that really dark one is the best! I have no clue who is going to win. But This is aboslutely amazing! I love this. The expression, the background, the colors you used. everything! Amazing job Vadns!
Very wonderful art piece, I love his expression! Congratulations for being a semi-finalist, and I wish you good luck with the contest! If I was one of the judges, this would win for sure the first place! It is my favorite, very gorgeous
