FETE OF AWAKENING:: Art Contest Winners
*Contests are voted on by the mods as well as three other outside the community individuals.
In second place we have an Awakening painted scene. This artist took a different aspect of the holiday to focus on. They paid attention to the Fete purpose of reawakening flowers from the winter slumber which is the backbone of the holiday itself. With attention given to the stages of flora; the plants shown vary from tiny buds, full, bright flowers, to the full treetops typical on Âthâw. The subtle displays of magic showcased in the reawakening of the flower buds and the levitating of the fairies gives this piece a joyful air and solidified their place on our award panel.
This fully lined, colored and shaded piece caught the judges' eyes with the attention given to the entire image; from the closest focal point of the Bouyâh familiar, to the Fete banners scripted in Âthâwian language, and the attention to world lore; more than one moon is shown in the night sky background. Other components in this piece we appreciated were that the Clokies shown were clearly engaged in Fete activities including floral arrangements and the consumption of festival pastries. This artist also paid attention to the spring fashion that Clokies would wear during this celebration. The fun atmosphere, bright colors, and unique composition made this piece a fitting winner of this year's Fete of Awakening art contest.
In third place we have another playful festival scene. Clear attention was given to the atmosphere of the piece; festival décor of lighted paper lanterns, streamers and floral arrangements frame the small group. Festival pastries are shown and the activity of floral arrangement (in the form of crafting flower crowns) is also showcased in the piece. Finally, the attention shown to the seasonal fashion while maintaining the Cloki's personal style is also evident here. It's a fun, focused composition.
FETE OF AWAKENING:: Pet Show Contest
*Due to the number of entries there was only one winner.
This year's Pet Show art contest winner! A simple, adorable scene of two little Bouyâh playing with a lit paper lantern while their masters' attention is focused elsewhere. But really, with so many lanterns set to go up, who's going to notice a few paw prints on one lantern???
