Topic Description

Cute Companion – Everybody thinks of the brave heroes and nasty villains first, when it comes to making up an exciting story. But what would they be without their faithful companions? May it be a trusty old friend, a cute little sidekick or a funny henchman, they do not only serve as comic relief, but also lend the story a bunch of original loveable characters. Show us your own cute companion!

Prizes for this challenge:


1st place by Yurco Sádecký‎

We like everything about this scene – engaging characters with great poses, design, and expressions, combined with excellent composition and colour.

2nd place by Georg Schlettwein

This image is very successful in showing us a cute character with a storyline, and despite it being hard to read in places (especially seeing the hands), details such as the human in the eyes’ reflection won this its place as second winner.

3rd place by Myriam Thomas

Probably the definition of cute companions, the shapes, colours and design make a really engaging image, and it tells a story despite a simple approach.
