OCTOBER CONTEST RESULTSTheme: Halloween, darkness, madnessFIRST PLACEWhiteFishy

Yes, a Judal artwork. Some may be skeptical because Judal is a very popular character, but this entry really ties with our main objective for this contest: Key factors are creativity and surprise (basically I want you to experiment and have fun)!
WhiteFishy stepped out of her comfort zone and gave it a shot. The result is an appropriate illustration with a style that gives off a peculiar feel. It's bright, but doesn't feel joyous. Judal's subtle expression, way he toys with the plush Aladdin combined with the simple reddish background makes for a intriguing take on madness.

Now this is Al Samen for you! A nice eerie atmosphere radiating from the piece, the traditional media is definitely helping. The composition is striking too - a dominant Gyokuen in the front, but not too much as to take away from the characters in the back (nice way of portraying Dunya and Isaac, by the way)! Gyokuen looks flushed and dazed, in a good way that effectively shows her mental state. Great entry!

I love the "Gyokuen and her minions" sort of feel in this artwork. Compared to the silhouettes in Dark Empress, the ones here look more unknown and sinister. The thought process in the description is appreciated too♪ Well made dark entry!
