1st place by Patrick Piranha
Making an animated trailer-style work like this in two weeks is quite impressive. The mood, composition and effects are done very good and we are certainly hyped for half-life 3 now!
2nd place by Rainer Weston
The design and storytelling are awesome, the subjects draw in the eye and the artwork is entertaining to look at. Only critique is layering in the painted stuff over the renders isn’t as smooth as we wanted. Well done!
3rd place by Hebron Gusti
The mood and world building in this artwork are phenomenal. Details are put in in all the right places and left out where it doesn’t bother the viewer. Where it pulls you in is just the scale and how it is represented. be careful of unreadable parts though and define where necessary.
