Anime North Official Cover Art 2013 by Corky-tan Anime North Official Cover Art 2013 by Corky-tan
*Phew*

Okay, so here's my program cover page for Anime North's contest. Sucks I had to convert it to CMYK...the colors got pretty messed up, but I guess there's not much I can do now (bleghlheghl). I chose a futuristic/mech theme since I hadn't seen it done before for the contest, I think, plus I wanted to challenge myself a little.

Wish me luck; I really busted my butt on this one!


Paint Tool SAI
Photoshop Cs5

Well I did art for a convention before, but only about half the size of Anime North so it was a pretty big thing for me. I was hoping on runner-up, but I didn't expect the win really lol

I don't know about the exact ranking cause it didn't say so in the email, but
:iconrainberry: got her runner up email first, so I assumed she is 2nd
:iconzerah-oblibious: and me got our email like a day later so I assume we are ranked further down ^^;

Don't know about the last runner up since there supposedly be four each year I think~

Feel kinda like a creeper for knowing all this ha...

I'm sure oceanchan would've gotten runner up also. I mean, I don't think her entry this year was as good as her others, I'm guessing she rushed it lol, but it was still pretty damn good.

Oh, sorry lol. I just kind of thought it was because it wasn't as polished as your other stuff. And I say polished in a good way lol

I think so too. She probably did, I love her CN tower one from last year.
When I saw my competition I was like ayeee I'm happy with a panel.

lol. Unfortunately for me I'm going empty-handed haha. Well, since I can't go, they're giving me some type of alternate prize, but I don't think it'll be great at all. I wish I could've just sold my table! Argggh! I got so many good offers for the damn thing <.<
