As someone trying to become a digital artist, I know how hard it can be sometimes to not place in a contest. Don't get too down on yourself. I didn't make it myself, but I felt that I pushed myself really hard and got just a tiny bit better. That's is what you have to push for; self improvement.

Just want everyone to know that you did great. Just remember, if you keep practicing you get better and then you can be that artist who gets to show off their work on the front page!

For those of you who participated but may not have been selected, for whatever reasons, dont feel bad! LoL is THE most popular game ever and with so many entries the competition is INTENSE. And that's what this is: A COMPETITION. Its supposed to be fun and challenging; a medium through which people can both improve themselves and engage in the best gaming community theres ever been Complaining, debating or otherwise being disagreeable isn't going to accomplish much and it certainly wont change the outcome of the contest. Its just the nature of the beast, not everyone can be winners but everyone can have fun engaging in and being part of the LoL community.

Discuss the entries, enjoy the craftsmanship and interact with one another and feel the LoLve, man! Contests like this enrich our enjoyment of a thing that already brings an incredible amount of entertainment to our lives as both gamers and artists!

Having said that who wants to ARAM? All this talk of LoL makes me want to LoL...
"best gaming community" hahhahahah you smokin something? This game has the worst and most rude people playing it, that's why thousands/millions complains about elo hell.

It's completely ok to disagree. everyone has their opinion and the right to state it. It wont change anything but it might give the coordinator/ judges some things to think about for the next contest.

Those were in the finalists, but they were eliminated during the panel meeting. We had a full panel of Riot artists involved in this process. I'm not sure what to tell you since it wasn't my decision to make

Those two were certainly awesome entries and just because they weren't top 17 out of the entire world doesn't mean they weren't great!

I laughed so hard at that link! Never give up dude/dudette, that is the most important bit of advice I have to give.

I still want to know why the Rengar piece got placed as a runner up... there is no s3 item in the picture at all. You guys just can't go bend the rule for one person, people spent a lot of times on their artwork and for you guys to do something like this...

here's my two piece, spend a week each on both and ruined my tablet in the process.
