After many people participated, it was a tight race and two people were selected as winners. CNSamson’s cool design “Red Falcon Saturn” was in the lead from the beginning. It then became a tie with CNSamson and me. If I didn’t submit more than one cover, I probably would have lost to his cover design.
Cheers, mate! It was a close vote indeed, but I think your entries better captured the spirit of the work.
Anyways, I reposted my image on my dA page: http://fav.me/d5gef9h
Looking forward to entering the next contest.
I think you won as runner up or honorable mention. Check with A. E. because you are entitled to a “prize” as well based on the info on the final submission thread. You are a winner too!!!
I looked at your gallery at deviant art and you got some serious stuff. Some of your images is called “space warriors.”, “Stellarstream Force”, and “Sector Patrol District B-139” (Hope its okay that I brought it over to DAZ to show others below). Why didn’t you submit these to the contest as well? These are fabulous. I think these would have been something A. E. would have loved as a cover design too. I am looking foreword to seeing your next entry in the next contest. This is the first time I have done anything like this. Since I am starting some projects and books and need a site to have people look at my “portfolio” so to speak, How do you start a gallery on deviant art?
Jake is right. I too have looked at some of your work and love it. Actually, I would’ve loved if you had submitted cover versions #1 and 3 of the pics Jake posted. I still would’ve like the Red Falcon armor tweaked…but that’s simple stuff.
I’m hoping to have my next contest up and running around the holidays. I’ll give you a hint, its a fantasy novel but not a mainstream type. More to come later. I want to set up a secure area on my website, where those involved in the contest can read the first 2 chapters to get a feel for the novel and the characters. And my personal target date for this novel is 1st quarter 2013, so I’m not in a rush atm. Too many irons in the fire as it is.
