I must admit this was a hard choice for all of us here at DreamOrchid and we were impressed by a lot of the works turned in. We did come to a decision on the first three with a feature to the ones that came very close. These three were picked because we felt they not only exhibited an amazing skill set within their medium but incorporated exactly what we asked for. First and second place winners were down to the wire. They both painted beautiful pieces we loved and they both exhibited a character which is looking down upon a scene.

First Place: The Slumbering Tyrant 16,000 points
~MoulinBleu We found this to be a breath taking piece incorporating the things that define art as a whole: lightening, perception, scale, and color. Victor Maury is only 20 years old and has been a member of Deviant Art for two years. He only has 1,590 page views which we found shocking. Please give this young man a visit to his gallery and lets welcome him into our art community because I feel when he sets his foot print on the world he'll paint us a plethora of imagination.
Second Place: Hellkite Monarch 8,000 points
~Somnicide Strangely I met Evan Monteiro through gaming a year ago in another art contest for Tera Online. He came off as modest and very kind. It was a pleasure to show his work to my colleagues at DreamOrchid. I was pleased that he not only provided one piece painted to excellence but three to enter in this contest. All three incorporated what we asked for a person looking upon a scene. One he entered has already received a daily deviation . The winning piece we picked out we felt added just a touch of more childhood inspiration of magic to it. It just makes you remember a time when you were growing up and scouting about or rock climbing hopping to have a glimpse of something new.
Third Place: Magic Guard 4,000 points
~ptitvinc We chose this piece because of its dynamic display of action within a scene on top of his artistic skill. Please check out Vincent's gallery because he has a way of painting the perfect scene and pulling the audience right in.
