Prizes for this challenge:


1st place by Jakob Scheidt

Very cute & interesting design coupled with beautiful lighting & presentation. A delight for the eyes!

2nd place by Florian Wilhelm

The insect is already convincing on its own but it gets literally elevated out of the proportions of a single image, when put together with its convincingly realistic animation.

3rd place by Gregory Smith

Another great artwork by Gregory. Magical lighting & composition. Detailed insect & environment. A very well done eye candy!
