Art Manikin Challenge Winners!

Votes are in and we have a winner!! Of the four finalists we selected, over 250 votes came in and emerging triumphant was Carina Salchegger’s green-friendly dragon. You can see more of her work on: www.neophobica.com. I personally loved this one too.. especially how well executed the drawing was and how it truly took advantage of all the 3-Dimensional reference the dragon armature provided. So a tip of the hat to Carina for doing such a great job and yet designing such a clever and original creature around it.

This was one of the most difficult contests to jury because so many entries were so strong. But in the end we had to pick these great works by our runner-ups:

Diego Florio @diegoflorioarte
Rachel Willis
Rosemary Fung – http://witbik.tumblr.com/

I encourage you to visit each of their websites and see some of their other great artworks. It’s always a breath of fresh air every month to have an opportunity to engage with such amazing artists.

Thank you all for participating!!!
And don’t forget we do these EVERY MONTH!

Them for November is already up on:

Moving – New office

Hello everyone, this is just a quick note to let you know that for the past four days we’ve been moving our office to a new location and it’s been slowing things down.

Just got our computers up and running yesterday and 3d printers up and running again today.

I apologize for those out there affected by these delays. We sincerely appreciate everyone’s patience. We should be back in the grove of things starting Monday.
