i was a bit disappointed in the entries this time. there were too many wrong sizes, no names and simple rules mistakes. second, and mind you this is very subjective, i didnt feel many really captured the palette knife look. still, there were some good ones

1. Kraellin - the best palette knife feel
2. Janet Petty
3. Swampy
4. Kilty 560
5. Alcar

This was a hard contest because i don't have a good version of Painter, so I ended up doing mine in photoshop and it was just difficult to get the look right. Great job on everyone that entered.

Re: Feb 09 Contest Votes

This was, as usual, a contest that stretched and (hopefully) improved skills. My challenge was getting enough depth into the picture to create that palette knife look without ruining the overall design.

1. Kraellin because his had that palette knife look without being devoid of detail.
2. Swampy because there was just a tad too much depth for the amount of detail in the picture. My opinion only there because the work was excellent!
3. Kilty
4. Alcar
5. Gilbert- very Van Gogh

Re: Feb 09 Contest Votes

Empathies with those that only had photoshop as their tool. This was a hard one and unfortunately I don't think anyone actually captured the essence of a skilled pallete knife.

Re: Feb 09 Contest Votes

I hope everyone had fun with this contest! There were a lot of great entries, but there were still a few that did not meet the contest rules (final file size and username for filename). Please don't forget to review the rules before submitting your entries.

The winner this month for his excellent results with the digital palette knife is...

Kraellin



Top 5:

Kraellin -28
Janet Petty - 20
Swampy - 20
kilty560 - 14
Alcar - 12

Don't forget to share your techniques in the contest discussion thread!
