Winners of the 30 DAYS OF NIGHT Art Contest! Behold!!!

Hey folks, Harry here... I know a lot of you are waiting on the BNAT 9 application results - but first - we have the 30 DAYS OF NIGHT contest results. We had a ton of submissions of all sorts - the challenge was to turn me into a vampire - using any form of art they could... from photoshop to charcoal. Here are the resulting winners in no particular order... 1. Josh Geiser of Modesto, California:

2. William Balzer of Brooklyn, New York:



3. Mayra Peralta of Lynwood, California:



4. Marcus Parcus of San Francisco, California:



Those are the winners - I'm seriously thinking about posting some of the others that I loved, but for now - this is it. Now for the next contest... coming later tonight!!!

    Trying out different subject lines, are we? I think I like the first one better.

  • Oct. 25, 2007, 9:10 p.m. CST

    Eh....

    by Zach_Talks_Back

    1 is cool but its a photomanip....so on that Basis i think #4 should have won for artistic originality and design....thats my 2 cents.

  • Oct. 25, 2007, 9:12 p.m. CST

    One of these artists...

    by Burgundy82

    should sketch out a new character model for that animated Harry in the top left corner. That thing has never looked like him. Always bugs me.

    Noooooo!!!

    by Allfather Starr

    I want to see the winners of the Boba Fett contest. You know, just like Quint promised to have the pics up in "a couple of days" about three weeks ago. It's so unlike him to be late with an AICN competition. I want to see those glorious pics of a foreign Coke bottle! A blue car! A lightsaber (imagine!!). A book on a shelf!!! Not these taken-their-time-to-produce-something-of-worth entries. Pfft.

  • Oct. 25, 2007, 9:24 p.m. CST

    #1 is disgusting

    by BringingSexyBack

    and fantastic. All excellent work - such talent out there.

    Bruce Campbell/Mike Richardson interview

    by TheMostHorrible

    by jivatmax

    for a movie that does not suck balls

    #1 is most disturbing

    by redfist

    However Harry has more girth.

  • Oct. 26, 2007, 1:53 a.m. CST

    wow.. yeah

    by soup74

    i cant decide which i like best.. i really like the style of #4. its pretty incedible. i can understand why #1 would win, but damn, they're all good.

  • Oct. 26, 2007, 3:44 a.m. CST

    All four are awesome

    by Iowa Snot Client

    I think I like No. 4 the best. HOWEVER: is anyone else sick to, erm, death of mighty morphin' vampires? You have to undergo six hours in the makeup chair just to drink someone's blood? I've pretty much had it with the contact lenses too, which haven't been scary since that Maxwell video.

    by Mr Cairo

  • Oct. 26, 2007, 5:38 a.m. CST

    I was going to moan about not winning

    by TheBigDogg

    But holy shit those are excellent. My entry was a piece of shit by comparison. That last one is just stunning. I love it.

  • Oct. 26, 2007, 6:24 a.m. CST

    by FILMFUNK

    Guy's name is seriously Marcus Parcus?

    by brokentusk

    He definitely got beaten up on the playground.

  • Oct. 26, 2007, 3:24 p.m. CST

    Still havent received print yet

    by joshus

    I was wondering if any of the winners actually got their print yet? I haven't. Quite a waste of time to do this, if the prize was to be withheld no?
