Contest Closed: Winner Announced!

Top Honors go to [deeterhi] for really Bringing Mirra to Life!.

See this contest featured in a gallery on my website!

Welcome to the "Bring Mirra to Life" coloring contest brought to you by [jsun].

I've decided to give a call out to all the artists who'd love to tap into the art world where I find my weak point. Some of you may know already that I prefer to draw in pencil rather than color my work. I consider coloring my weak point. However, I really enjoy other artists' works in color. So I'm holding a contest in which you artists of color will be coloring my "Mirra".

Everyone who participates will have their work featured on my website ( I will also link to your personal art galleries or websites on my website as well.


 The artist whose work I admire the best wins the original drawing by me. What does that mean? If I choose your work from all the submissions to be the best, I will personalize the original drawing of Mirra for you and mail it to you. It will be yours to treasure forever and your colored work will be featured in the Demented Wurkz hallowed hallz of fame forever!

Here's the Participant Banner for your houses

2007-02-12 [Cia_mar]: yea

2007-03-02 [jsun]: Hi guys, it's time to wrap this one up. I was gone for quite awhile (still am really). This contest has been running for awhile now and I've really enjoyed all the entries. Some of you guys have helped me see "Mirra" from several good perspectives.
Well, as I mentioned in the beginning, the winner gets the original artwork. I'll contact the winner and ask for a postal address to mail it to. As for the rest of the lovely artwork, it's definately going on my website. The same website that is gonna get a major overhaul and an update. This means that it could be sometime yet before you see your work on there, but hey... it's gonna happen.

Now, I'd like to mention some pieces that I really enjoyed but didn't happen to win my top spot.

I really like the flowing green ghost effect camouflage of Cia_mar's paintings.
Elysiann did a superb job of a more cartoon style Mirra in which the colors where beautiful.
Silver Seraph, the sunset sky on your first painting is AWESOME... I just love it to death.
Bratt has the total liquid color effect that I see in some of my favorite comic books down to a science. I really do like how you've pulled it off and your color scheme was a plus too.
dayahnaira, although not at all what I had expected, the purple-brown hair in your 2nd piece is beautiful. It was a pleasure to see it.

And the top spot goes to the artist who I feel portrayed Mirra just as she is in my world. It's not just a lovely painting of my artwork... it really brings Mirra to Life and that's why I choose Deeterhi's painting as the winner of the contest.

Thank you all for participating. It has been a blast and I hope you all enjoyed it as well. I apologize for the wait and suspence but the bright side of it all is that we were able to see more art. I'll return and announce the posting of your work on my website once I've updated. Happy painting to you all!

2007-03-02 [Cia_mar]: Congrats to you Deeterhi!!! Yours was my pic too! glad you won!

Jsun, thank you for the wonderful compliment and the great oppertunity to try my hand at this... it was all a learning process for me...
thanks again!

2007-03-02 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: Gratz to Deeterhi! Your picture was awesome!
Although i don't envy Jsun, having to pick the winner must have been tricky!

2007-03-02 [Remos Page]: nice to see you back jsun

2007-03-02 [Elisha Kelly]: applauds [deeterhi]

2007-03-03 [BinaryPhoenix]: Congratulations deeterhi!!! Personally, I think all the entries were winners! ^_^

2007-03-03 [deeterhi]: thanks guys :)
props must go to jsun though for creating the beautiful pencil illustration to begin with

2007-08-23 [jsun]: I've finally gotten around to updating my website. This contest has also been featured and published along with all you guys' beautiful entries. Here's a link to it

Also, if any of you are bored and just feel like painting, feel free to try your hand at any of my artwork. I'd be happy to feature it on my website too.

2007-08-24 [BinaryPhoenix]: Should we upload them here, or send them to you in a pm?

2007-08-24 [jsun]: a pm is fine or by email :D I'd probably get it first by email

2007-08-24 [BinaryPhoenix]: cool!
