1st Prize: The Lake Shore by Conzitool
This work of art won our hearts because of how sensitively it captures the aerial perspective while creating the illusion of depth, all complemented by an organic inclusion of a mystical theme and elements.
2nd Prize: The Envoy by David K. Manuel
The second prize in the Rebelle category goes to the 'Envoy' artwork because of the eye-catching color rendering and detail processing of the fantasy theme.
3rd Prize: Hanfu by Kylelee
'Hanfu' artwork stands out due to its realistic capture of movement and light in the displayed materials. We also appreciate the original usage of Japanese paper with deckled edges which completes the captured scene perfectly.
1st Prize: Awakening by Yoogart88
‘Awakening’ work excels in its artistic processing as well as because of live expressive colors and specific stylization of a human body.
2nd Prize: Planes of Creation by Zlatokryletz
We admire how artist Zlatokryletz naturally connected an expressive, psychedelic drawing with the creative possibilities of flame brush structures.
3rd Prize: Star Eater by Liiga
This breathtaking artwork by Liiga stands out because of how it captures the mysterious atmosphere with the colors and sensuous connection of a classic painting and flame elements.
1st Prize: Hyperlight by Illustrator
The natural connection of a photographic motive and Amberlight structures creates a monumental cosmic composition that caught our eyes instantly. The use of light makes the composition very believable.
2nd Prize: Life Force by SilvainR
The ‘Life force’ work stands out because of the way the artist has achieved an impressive X-ray effect and intuitive spatial composition through the sensitive work with layering and Amberlight software. This work gives you an instant impression of an X-ray snapshot captured by a camera in outer space.
3rd Prize: Into the Unknown by Tenyo Marchev
From our point of view, the originality of this artwork lies in the representation of the space through the light and Amberlight gravitational fields.
1st Prize: Stakeout Behind the Orchard Motel by Ronaldsnotebook
This original piece of art excels in the idea of using various Inspirit elements in a new, more complex composition creating a humorous illustration. This work represents an original way of using Inspirit in a bigger composition.
2nd Prize: Rustic Mandala by Jaxon
We like the original creation of Inspirit shapes and the organic connection with a natural theme.
3rd Prize: Strong and Royal by Illustrator
The Illustrator’s art stands out for its work with Inspirit detail with which he creates a composition reminiscent of royal ornaments.
Our panel of judges, which included members of Escape Motions and members of the art department of the university UKF Nitra, chose the winning entries based on the strength of their emotive elements and technical excellence. Since it was very hard to choose the top three winners, we decided to reward 3 more artworks with Honorable mention:
The Wolfman by Daniel Murray - The first Honorable mention in the Rebelle category goes to Daniel Murray and his ‘Wolfman’. We adore the expressive depiction of expression and the creation of a dramatic atmosphere with the use of light in the portrait.
And The Ocean Dances by Simon Lovell - We’d like to appreciate Simon’s beautiful art with a second Honorable mention in the Rebelle category. We are fascinated by the depicting of a natural movement in his art and sensible work with tonal value in the scene of sea creatures. Another appealing factor is the ingenious use of Rebelle’s drop engine.
Kiss of Light by KaboumTank - We admire KaboumTank’s qualities of mystical drawing and work with contrast when drawing a portrait couple with the Honorable mention in the Flame Painter category.
