The results of Draw Tom Ripley Contest

       The results of Draw Tom Ripley contest 

  

Hello everyone! :wave:
            
           It has been 4 and a half months since I started holding my first contest  Draw Tom Ripley Contest  which is a long journey full of new experiences. The origin is just an idea to cope with many deviants who kept asking me for points since I won 5,000 points from Plan Gone Wrong Contest last year. I told them to draw me Tom Ripley first and I'd give them some points in return. After I had got 2 pieces, I started to think "why not make it as a contest? It's gonna be fun." 
             
           At first, I didn't intend to make a big contest because the idea came too late. I had less than 500 points left in my hand. I can't remember how much points I would give to the first place winner at the beginning. [around 1,000-1,500 points I guess]. But since Tom Ripley is my all-time favorite character and I don't know when I can hold a contest for him again, I decided to try my best for this contest. 

           Because this is just a private contest which doesn't have official media in hand,  and it hardly appeared at the footer of the website longer than half day either, in order to get good entries from talented artists around dA, I did it my own way. I started by featuring over 300 amazing artworks from over 300 talented artists on my page. Then, I kept commenting on popular deviations and journals everyday and increasing the prizes little by little at the same time. SulgheruDC, who suggested a lot of Daily Deviations, told me he found my prizes bigger every time he saw my comment on each DD he suggested. 

           I think my strategy worked. I got more wonderful entries gradually. 30,000 pageviews within 4 months is by-product, and an abuse from a furious rude woman who couldn't stand seeing my avatar anymore is side effect. But I couldn't help it. I would not stop till I got enough. It was exciting to see if there would be anyone else abusing me on my page each morning. Fortunately, most people in dA were nice and had sense of humor. However, the most exciting moment was every time I clicked the link sent from a new contestant. Nothing could make me happier than getting a great entry. 

           After all, I think this contest is successful because I finally have good entries more than the prizes I intended to give. And when I looked at the entries carefully for judgement, I began to realize how lucky I was for having these talented artists as my contestants. Despite the fact that I'm not rich and also lost main income this year because of the big flood in my country, I decided to give much more points to the winners because they deserve it. I ended up spending more than 40,000 points for both the prizes and the promotion. Don't tell me I'm crazy because I've already known that.  

            Above all, it's absolutely not easy to hold a private contest alone. I can't achieve it this much without some help. There are more than 20 deviants and 10 groups that helped me spread the news, 15 deviants offered their prizes, and more than 5,500 points have been donated to me. It's incredible! I discovered true friends during this contest. Besides donating prizes, someone also encouraged me from the beginning till the end. I felt tired sometimes from holding this contest  but I never felt alone. Thank you very much all my dear friends for your warm and impressive supports. :heart:

           Now, it's time to announce the results of this contest. As I've said, I don't judge the winners just by looking at drawing skill, but I'm also looking for the work that portrays character, feeling or story of Tom Ripley well and creatively. I would like to see something different from reference photos. Something artistic and creative that photocopier can't do. I know it's not easy to make a perfect entry which is all that I need. 

             Like most of the voters said, it's a hard decision to make. As the only judge, I confess I had a big headache because the qualities of the top 10 entries are very close. They all have reasons to win. The problem is I can't give 1st place to them all.  What I can do is putting close proximity in their prizes. 

             One more thing I want to make clear about my judgement is the fact that I don't care whether the entries are traditional or digital. To me, traditional works and digital works are all art. I respect them both especially traditional artists whose works have only one layer without redo button to click. The point is artworks that come with colors tend to interest me more than black & white. It's personal taste.

            Okay, here are the entries that get my prizes which have been judged carefully;




1st place winner 

A Fake Somebody by luckyraeve

gets 4,000 points


               luckyraeve was one of the targets I wanted to have in this contest. Thank God she not only was interested but also gave me a very elegant entry. I think she chose a great reference photo which Tom Ripley's facial expression shows deep and complicated emotions. It's not easy to portray. I take my hat off to her for the achievement. I agree with my friend who thinks this work has a lot of artistic look. The tones and texture of the skin are very nice, the eyes are emotive and the smooth shadows give it a nice effect. The way she made the white shirt and the red necktie makes it look like a traditional painting. The background and the composition are also neat. Though it doesn't have much creativity, but the delicate beauty in portrait style that presents character of Tom Ripley very well makes this entry second to none.


2nd place winner 

Lullaby for Cain by edenbhel

gets 3,000 points

            
              I really enjoy the details and creativity edenbhel put in this work which can tell story a lot in one frame. His Tom Ripley is having a good time and unaware of the sadness inside Marge who stands behind in the dark yearning for her lover whom he parted. The engagement ring with bloodstain on his finger is a smart sign of murder. The pier in front of Castello Aragonese reminds me of the movie location. The moon adds a lot of mysterious atmosphere, and the contrast between the warm tone and the cold tone reflects both situation and his two-face character at the same time.  This entry is brilliant and very fun to look at.


3rd place winner 

Mr.Ripley by Katarina-Venom

gets 2,750 points

  
                When I first saw the key in this entry, I was immediately impressed and knew that Katarina-Venom realized the essence of the movie deeply and used it as concept in her work. Besides the clever idea, this work clearly shows her great drawing skill.  Congratulation to Katarina-Venom on winning the two-round vote which means her entry is the most popular work and makes her become the second most points winner in this contest. 


4th place winner 

Mr.Tom Ripley by TomsGG

gets 2,500 points


             I have seen TomsGG's avatar quite often during the contest before she amazed me with this splendid entry. The face is quite eye-catching and shows the dark side of the character a lot. The blonde hair looks very fine as well as the glasses. The use of the pair of colors is intelligent which makes this work very outstanding.


5th place winner 

Talented. by dreamarian

gets 2,250 points

            dreamarian shows us her confidence and talent through graphite pencils. The intensive contrast between the accurate light and shadow especially on the faces makes this work very interesting, and it also fits the tone of the movie which is the combination of drama, crime and thriller so well. This is a very remarkable work indeed.



6th place winner 

Obsession by mochriadhemiach

gets 2,000 points


                 I've got a lot of pencil works in this contest. And mochriadhemiach did a very nice one. Her entry looks so tender and beautiful. I can clearly see the emotional connection between the 2 characters in this piece. The faithful eyes of Tom and the arrogant face of Dicky are priceless. The likeness of the two guys really makes my hair stand on end.               


7th place winner 

Good Night Mr.Ripley! by Araen

gets 1,750 points

              I love the sharp and resolute line of pencil in this work. It has movement which looks free and fun. Araen also captured the likeness very well, even though the perspective of the reference photo is quite difficult. The composition and the rendering on the skin especially the face is totally wonderful. With her precious talent, her rank can be higher if Tom Ripley wakes up and shows me some feeling. 


8th place winner 

The Talented Mr.Ripley by wooden-horse

gets 1,500 points


                  I expected to see some caricatures in this contest. Though this is the only  one that I got, luckily it's from wooden-horse who is a unique artist in this field. His both coloring and line are full of confidence and fun and also can capture the character of Tom Ripley quite well.


9th place winner 

Thomas Ripley Portrait by LopezIIReturn

gets 1,250 points


                   I still can remember how much this powerful entry stunned me at first sight. The intensive red and black colors in warm tone that LopezIIReturn smartly used in his work reflect a lot of danger, mystery and darkness of the character. I also love the texture and the abstract style he played with the shirt and the background which make this work imaginative. I really love this work. If I'm not a kind of perfectionist, I might have placed it in a much higher rank.


10th place winner 

The Not So Talented... by aRtUSSELL

gets 1,000 points


                I'm impressed by the concentration that aRtUSSELL put in this work. The rendering on the face is superb. He portrayed the emotion of Tom Ripley through the facial expression especially the eyes so well that I almost handed Tom Ripley a handkerchief to wipe away his tear.

Hello dear friends! :wave:

   I've spent 3 days to finish counting the votes in my Draw Tom Ripley Contest  Some votes are invalid because they didn't follow the rules. [haven't become deviant before 1 Feb 2012, put wrong link, put more than one link, posted in other comment box after voting, etc.]    However, we still have 390 valid votes. Let's see how many votes each entry got in the first round.



By the way. I organize popular prize because I want to know which entry will be the best work from public's perspective. I've asked all contestants not to solicit votes from anyone personally/specifically. But I didn't write it as a rule because I thought contestants still can solicit votes in private notes and I'll never know. Now I have realized I was so wrong because I found some abnormality has happened during the vote. The voting was opened for one month. Some entry that didn't get a vote before happened to get plenty of votes in a row within a few days before deadline. I also have got some notices from contestants and prize donors asking me how I would handle this. And Here is my solution to bring more justice back to the vote. 



Second round voting 

:heart: Who can vote?

All 60 contestants in this contest can vote. [contestant can't vote for his own entry]


All prize donors, points donors and supporters in this contest can vote. Their avatars are here. [please forgive me if I forgot anybody]

To make this vote fair and indicates real popular works, 


Contestants please do not ask people for their vote personally in the note or in any other ways. If you are doing that, please stop now.

Voters please do not just come to vote here because a contestant asked you to. Please vote for the entry that you really think it's the best.

I worked hard for this contest and I will not easily give 1,000 points to any entry that gets highest votes but its quality is obviously impossible and unacceptable to win. 

There seems to be someone doing unfair thing in this vote lately. To handle this, I have the right to change or add more condition and rule before the contest ends on 10 April 2012. I can't tell right now, I have to see the result of the vote first. 


So please be fair and respect other contestants who worked hard. I'll do anything to bring justice back to this vote.

P.S. You can see the result of the vote here.
2nd round votingHello dear friends! :wave:
   I've spent 3 days to finish counting the votes in my Draw Tom Ripley Contest  Some votes are invalid because they didn't follow the rules. [haven't become deviant before 1 Feb 2012, put wrong link, put more than one link, posted in other comment box after voting, etc.]    However, we still have 390 valid votes. Let's see how many votes each entry got in the first round.




By the way. I organize popular prize because I want to know which entry will be the best work from public's perspective. I've asked all contestants not to solicit votes from anyone personally/specifically. But I didn't write it as a rule because I thought contestants still can solicit votes in private notes and I'll never know. Now I have realized I was so wrong because I found some abnormality has happened during the v

:iconsouls-of-artists: held a very creative contest which have two categories, Artistic and Writing.  The challenge of this contest is to use a per-existing piece of Art or Writing  here on DA; and to develop your own concept according to the theme. It is all based on "Inspiration and Connection" that you got from seeing a piece of Art or from reading a Poem, and putting that feeling or inspiration you got from it into words or art form. Now the contest has the winners. As I'm one of the prize donors who will give them Llama and feature, so here is the feature.

The Winners For Visual Arts

 
 

1st place  The Man From the Black Pearl by Mr-Ripley by  :iconmr-ripley:

The Winners For Poetry

 

1st place  by :iconhellsassassin:

2nd place  Invisible GirlHidden in a corner,
Everything is dark.
I see the world around me,
But never taking part.
My friends just overlook it,
I don't think they can see,
The thing inside,
That is killing me.
It tears at my heart and soul,
Eating me alive.
Sometimes I'm just wishing,
That I could just die.
I want someone to notice,
See that I am there.
To hold me close and tell me,
That they really care.
Everyone's so wrapped up in their life,
That all they see is their own.
I want them to see that I am sitting here,
Confused and so alone.
I want someone to help me,
But no one seems to care.
I'm wasting my life on wishing,
That I was never here.
The pain inside is cutting me,
Like a thousand pieces of glass.
Driving deeper into my heart,
When I think about the past.
I'm tired of looking in the past,
But the future doesn't seem to real
So I will sit here,
Slowly trying to heal.
For I will always be,
An Invisible Girl.
by :iconlifeisapeach:


Honourable Mention  Losing MyselfIt's a certain ambiance that haunts me
An ere of imperfection which overshadows me
With all the toxicities this world has to offer
What good is it to turn away? The noise is still there
Whether or not it wants to be heard
To drown out one thing, we turn to another
Eventually to be overtaken by SOME thing
Slowly, humanity becomes less human
Morality, faith, imagination
Will prove itself to be nonexistent
We are losing ourselves
Just as I am losing MYself
As hard as we try to not let the ways of society
Which work to fully consume us
Dilute our individual dreams
Goals are unmet for more than one reason
For in this world, realities and fantasies collide
Confusion strikes an unwanted chord
Averting true thinkers from their ways
Only to be taken down a path of despair
For in this world of competition, selfishness
It is only the wealthy who prevail
True talents and imaginations
Are cast aside, labeled unworthy
They have no worth outside of themselves
Materialistic thinking is the only way

Hi dear friends and watchers :wave:
        
         Year 2011 has passed. What have happened to you? In my real life, I finally finished my last traditional portrait drawing which took me 6 years, sent it to my aunt and kissed all my chalk-pastel colors goodbye. My cutout drawing for grandstand in a school game won the first place prize.   In dA, I won the second place prize in the One Panda One Pie One Light contest. I got my first DD and surpassed 50,000 pageviews. As an artist, I take 2011 as one good year.
         I am also holding a contest called Draw Tom Ripley Contest   , trying to spread the news as much as I can in order to give my contest a chance to get at least 30 good entries from good artists in dA before the deadline. But from my poll I found that most of my own watchers still don't know about it. So, I'll take this journal as an official announcement of my contest.  I'll give 7,700 points in this contest including 3,000 points for the first place winner. Please read the detail on my profile page mr-ripley.deviantart.com/ Everybody is welcome. You don't have to be my watcher to join this contest.
         I'm also waiting to give 555 points to anybody who happens to visit my gallery when I get 55,555 pageviews. [See the detail of this kiriban on my profile page.]
         Finally, I have collected some wonderful portrait works to feature in this journal. Hope I will get more entries from these wonderful artists. :)

         Good luck and Happy New Year 2012, everyone! :party:

Hi, all dear friends :pat:

My 2nd Birthday in DA has passed. Thank so much to all of you for making it warm and impressive. I really appreciate all the kind words,  gifts, points and every single piece of cake. I wish all the kind blessing return to all of you.

Now, I'd like to feature your wonderful works together in this journal. Please take it as Christmas gift from me.

P.S. I apologize to anyone whose work wasn't featured here. If I add one more work, this journal can't be published because it will exceed the limit.

Love,
Tom.

Ripley's game

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 29, 2011, 8:05 AM


Hi all dear friends, :wave:

         Wanna play game?  I just have put a new image for my ID as you can see on my profile page now. There are 8 adjective words winking before the words 'The Talented Mr.Ripley' show up.
All you have to do is typing all the 8 words in the comment of this journal within November 10th.  I'll give 100 points, 10 faves and 1 Llama to the first person who can show me the right answer. You have to type them correctly and respectively.  HINT : All these 8 words can express myself quite well.   
         Everybody who plays this game or write a comment will have his/her work featured in this journal.  

Have fun! =D

Mr.Ripley

       P.S. Now the game is over. I've got the winner within the first hour. Congrats! I remember how hardly I caught each word from the website. Maybe my gif file is too slow =D

WOW.. My first DD!

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 15, 2011, 1:13 AM


Hi all dear friends :wave:

I had never been lucky in any contest that I have participated in my first 2 years at deviantART, and I had been dreaming of my first DD since I knew how much it means for a DA artist. And then my work called Late For Dinner made me be a winner of a big contest and brought me my first DD at the same time. Hmmm... This is too good to be true!  LOL  =D







Thank you very much Mr.Oleg Tscheltzoff and all the staff for giving me reward in the contest.

Thank you :iconsweetychan: and :iconwdwparksgal: for bringing me my first DD

Thank you my very nice friend and amazing artist :iconnoitusan: for encouraging me to make the Late For Dinner piece.



And Thank you all my friends and everybody for your kind word and the fave.
I really appreciate your support.

God bless you all.

Mr.Ripley

Hi, all dear friends :wave:

Suddenly, I'm in the busiest moment of the year. My yearly cutout-drawing job has come. (Remember that big Lady Gaga piece last year?)   At the same time, I'll have some of my artworks printed in a book for the first time too. I'm so excited, and I have to create a few more new works and tutorial for the book as well. So, I guess I'll be very busy until August. Sorry if I don't have time to visit anyone's gallery or even to say thank you for faving or watching my works. But, I'll do it whenever I have done my two important jobs.

Take care :)

Mr.Ripley.

30K Celebration

Wed Feb 2, 2011, 4:04 AM

Hello all dear friends :wave:
My first 18 months in DA passed by.  I really had a good time sharing my art with wonderful artist friends around the world. It's great to know you guys and get inspired by your art.  By the way, my little gallery has reached 30,000 pageviews last night. I'd like to do something special for this occasion by playing a game. (got this idea from my friend Yoni)  All you have to do is giving me a link of somebody else's work that you like. And then I'll feature it with your own work that I like. :)  Hope I'm not making you guys confused. Anybody can join.  :XD:
Love,
Mr.Ripley

Happy New Year 2011  :wave:
      
         Howdy everyone?  I wish good things keep coming to your life all this year =D  I'm sorry that I hardly haven't visited you guys' galleries to view your new works and to thank for all the support as usual because my message page often has trouble and hard to access lately. Sometimes I can't even go to my profile page. I just don't know why. [Though my internet just has been upgraded from 4 to 6 MBps]   
        However, this is my first journal in 2011 that I'd like to specially thank to some nice friends that kindly helped me in some ways last year. Here they are..


I'd like to begin with :iconjusteline: who just taught me yesterday how to feature artwork in big size like this...
