Dracopedia Contest Winners

Greetings everyone! After much hand-wringing and debate the judges have decided on the four winners of the Dracopedia Art Contest.  We all loved the entries and it was a shame to narrow it down to only four.  I've actually added an "Editor's Choice Award". 

Congratulations to the winners, thank you to everyone who contributed, and good luck with your artwork!

1st place:
Aaron Murphy
Title: Emerald Venomclaw
Age: 15


LG West.  "...this was my favorite in the youth category. It's not easy to put two heads on a dragon, and the design shows some real observation  and problem solving, yet maintains pleasing proportions. The wings, which tend to be the least plausible bits, even among pros, are well designed. I also like the repourposing of the rear limbs."

2nd place:
Sarah Baker
Title: Dragon
Age: 7
New York, USA


T. Lockwood. "Love that it's mouth is open and it's roaring, and
love it's mane."


1st Place:
Evan Monteiro
Title: Hellkite Monarch
Age: 21
Florida, USA

T. Lockwood. "This painting has everything: Good anatomy, nice
lighting, lively, majestic pose, a sense of story."


2nd Place
Betty Jiang
Title: Dragon
Age: 19 
 LG West. "The clearly protective posture is great, and the scale pattern works well. "

Editor's Choice:

Title: Glass Dragons
Age: 20
