Winners for Art Contest #3!

Our 3rd Community Art Challenge has completed and we're once again blown away by the creativity shared! The task was to combine an animal with a vegetable, and the winner is K.AR.S. with this very unique Onion Cat (displaying different ways to cut an onion! So clever!)

BluDmd23 is runner-up with these animal+vegetable hybrids, especially Oni the Onion Rabbit -- sporting amazing shape language, smart choices for color palette, and a super unique idea for a transforming weapon:

We also have YaRoslav as runner-up who charmed us with this cute lettuce-rabbit hybrid! We love the cuteness-factor (how could you not?), the integration of the lettuce leaves, and the interesting underground nest concept. Well done!

Our humble thanks to everyone on our Discord for sharing their talent and creativity with us and our community! To see the rest of the entries, visit our Discord community here: http:/

Art Contest 2 Winners!

Our 2nd Community Art Challenge has ended! This time we asked artists to design a character with very specific parameters (green, curvy, wavy black hair, loves aerobics and nature, afraid of shadows!) 

Our winning entry is “Zoe” by @BluDmd23! We loved the clover-shaped hair, costume design and colors! (And kitty friend!)

Our first runner-up is by @PkelzArt and we loved the strong shape language, looseness, and that big fun leaf!

And our second runner-up is by artist K.A.R.S., who impressed us with a very cool, original weapon (a lantern staff used to literally fight off the darkness -- what a great idea!) and some nice posing!

Thank you again to everyone who participated and made this another fun contest! You can see all the other submissions in the #contest-entries channel on our official discord server, here:
