Topic Description

Snowball Ah, it’s that time of the year again! Can you smell it? The thick white snow outside the frosty windows? Aren’t your fingers itching for finally forming a nice round snowball and join a wild snowball fight? Well, maybe it’s not snowing right now, maybe you haven’t had White Christmas for years. But in your imagination, it can become true and childhood dreams can sprout into amazing artworks!

The 3rd winner can choose 2 of the remaining prizes, from the list below.


Prizes for this challenge:



1st place by Melanie Lee

We say: The clear winner for this week, the composition and design really spark the holiday spirit with us. Some detailing on the cloud and the notes could improve it a bit but the detail on the birdie and the house are aweome! Nice work.

2nd place by Tyler Shook

We say: Awesome design! It’s dynamic, funny and looks like an interesting character. Be wary of your composition and keep your margins in the direction of the action (in this case on the right instead of the left). Good Work!

3rd place by Martin Schrimpel

We say: The mood made this a solid third place, it looks like a cute christmas card. The texture on your snow could’ve been a bit more detailed but the color use and storytelling are really holiday-material. Good job!
