    Art Contest Winners and Extension

    Hello everyone! As you may know, we held an art contest for some alternate art works for some of our favorite cards to be added into the game. We had many great entries and have chosen a few winners!

    Congratulations to the artists behind these first round winners! We'll be contacting them in the near future to discuss further details on their prizes. We also want to keep the quality of the art as high as possible, and may require some minor improvements before adding them to the game.

    Of the remaining entries, three of the artworks we have decided are fantastic but would suit our needs elsewhere on other cards. We know that was not the intent behind the artwork created, so we'll be contacting the entrants soon about this. With that said, here are the artworks in question!

    Ogloth the Glutton by Jimmy Ling which we hope to use for War Giant in Lost Lands Part 2.

    "But there were a lot more than that! What happened to the rest of them!?" You may be asking as you play your copy of Enraged for that sweet +10 health. Do not let the Consuming Fear take hold and lead to Yahri: Valley of Doom! After debating about the rest of the artwork and their quality or similarities to the original artwork, we've come to somewhat of a standstill.

    Thus we have decided to open the Bazaar and let the community have more of a say in the rest of these potential winners. Do you think they should be added in or not? Please let us know! After all, these are your alternate artwork cards you'll be boasting about for years to come! Here are the ones that we're undecided on:

    Karlstrad is pretty sick if you ask me. Artist didn't stray very far from the original (same crown, sword, etc) but the pose is more striking and makes him more fierce looking.

    The Infernal Gargoyle (s) are both very good depictions but I feel as if the two renditions are just a little too comic-ish.

    Shadow Knight looks good as well but needs more detail and would probably look better against a blank (fog like backdrop) like the original. I find the ghosts (souls) cool but distracting.

    As for the rest some very decent images but not consistent enough with the current card art imo.

    P.S. The Plasma Behemoth and Scourge Colossus winners are the bomb. I just love how the alternate Behemoth has energy leaking out of his body

    Congrats to the ones who have won already, some really great arts there. Also good idea to use some on other cards, Jimmy Ling's Ogloth would fit as War Giant, and I felt from the start that Martin Novotny's Behemoth and Colossus would work great as something else, because they are really great arts, just didn't look like the original enough.

    As for the others, Karlstrad and Shadow Knight I feel are close enough to be picked. CyART's Gargoyle is actually pretty close too I'd say, when you examine his compared to the original there are details that are carried over well. Also, I feel Sang Nguyen's Jasmine could be used for something else, as could Jackie Felix's Seductress (with that one you could actually use it as Seductress or some future Twilight ally I feel).

    Congrats to all winners!

    Of the ones still in the run I think Karlstrad is faithful enough, so as Shadow Knight. Jasmine looks good although she reminds me more of Lily cause of straight hair and big cleavage. I think Seductress by Jackie Felix can pass too. Original Garg is very fuzzy so it is hard to recreate but I think Cyart did a better job.

    Ogloth the Glutton by Jimmy Ling is my favorite (I may be a bit biased). Even if it gets used for War Giant, I feel that art very well represents Ogloth.
