In It to Win It

Welp, didn't win either Dragon challenge from Dragopedia or Art Order. Honestly, I didn't expect to. I was using it more as an opportunity to drill my name into other art director and illustrator heads. As one of my fave illustrators Greg Manchess has written more in depth, ya gotta be in it to win it. There are so many factors when it comes to these competitions, and you can't always predict the outcome - be it win or "lose". But like I said, it's not a loss to me if somebody down the line says, "Yeah, Emily Crowley... I know that name from somewhere...". The winners were certainly deserving! Check out Dragopedia winners and submissions here and Art Order's here.

In other news, I'm playing around with another illustration idea. It's still gestating, and I just got an idea today that may change up the whole game. Mountain nymphs, getting ready for spring. But here's my mind thinking about it in Photoshop!

Spectrum Judging part 2

That's it! All 6,000 submitted pieces including my Lancelot and Guinevere (hopefully. I mean, for all I know it got lost in the mail. I guess I can't think like that!) have been reviewed and selected for Spectrum 20. The winners of each category will be announced later today on Muddy Colors, but here's a look at what the judges went through over the weekend over on Spectrum's website. You know I scanned every one of those pictures to see if I could spot ol' Lance and Guin. I won't know till later if I made it in, but my fingers are crossed!
