Find Out Who Will Receive THE WOLFMAN Prize Pack!!
...with the results from last week's WOLFMAN contest (announced HERE).
Firstly, apologies for the delays in posting the results - there were communications issues regarding contest organization that took a few days to resolve. Now that we're back in play, here's a look at a few of the finalists - as well as the winning entry.
Firstly, I'd like to say that there were a number of impressive entries, including these pieces from a 6.5 year old Geek-In-Training named Ben Kimmel. We were tempted to give him the prize...
Other final contenders included...
John Sloboda from OH...
Juan Carlos Lizarraga from CA...
Tom Whalen from PA...
Joe Lemieux from MA...
Woody Welch from CA...
Patrick Pendergast from OR...
Ryan Shovey of FL...
...and this wallpaper from Zach Copeland of CA (EMBIGGENABLE)
The prize pack goes to:
Branden Hafiz of NJ.
Really like the simplicity of the image, the dimensionality of that splatter, etc. It's striking & I kept coming back to it.
Thanks to everyone for participating, really enjoyed seeing everyone's contributions. Keep your eyes peeled for another opportunity in the next week or two. Something to do with KICK-ASS...

I realize the collage is rather crude but I didn't make it specifically for this contest; it was something I threw together a while back for personal use. So when this came up I figured "what the hell, I'll submit it". Cool to be featured on the site though. A lot of great work here, congrats to all. - Zach Copeland from CA

I don't have a problem with it really. Just compared to the others, it seemed like a collage that would have been relatively simple to do. Please don't take offense! And congrats for having your work featured here!

Feb. 18, 2010, 2:49 p.m. CST

Feb. 18, 2010, 3:29 p.m. CST

Feb. 18, 2010, 6:37 p.m. CST
take a fucking bow, dude. Congrats on being the best one, even if you didn't win. You get a ten, monkey!

I guess when your entry is even more juvenile than the 6 yr olds and 10 times more vulgar they don't wanna waste the space. Your loss TBrs. Your loss.
Feb. 18, 2010, 6:45 p.m. CST
Mondo would be sucking hime off right now. Just needed a cooler font and it would be pretty sweet. Lots of nice work there people. Why you would put so much effort in for a disposable cup is beyond me. Oh....you love art..oh. Carry on.

Hi this is Joe Lemieux from MA: The artist who painted those stones is my Brother In-Law Nik Clarke, for the past four years he has made one these Classic Monsters stones, painted free hand for my birthday or for Christmas! He is an amazing artist, he is not very tech savy, I thought his time is due for the world to know of his talents and his artwork!

They are both rip off's of other people work! One of them was featured in last months Empire magazine!
Feb. 20, 2010, 12:10 p.m. CST
...is EERILY similar to the Olly Moss poster featured in Empire Magazine...see link: http://tinyurl.com/yjwwm83
Feb. 20, 2010, 12:13 p.m. CST
FUN FACT: Olly did the Locke Poster for damoncarltonandapolarbear over the summer...the Saul Bass inspired one with the wheelchair.

So, I saw the post a couple days ago claiming i ripped off my design. Took it as flaming, and laughed it off. I just got off an airplane after reading Empire magazine, and sure enough, there was the poster in question, and wow, yes, that is pretty much exact. Though I never saw this prior, I do agree, it looks like a total ripoff. I would have flamed me as well. My process was simple, google some wolfman related imagery, saw the moon cycle and BAM, poster. In hindsight, not an original idea to boot. Ah well, I like the understated feel of his better. The skull instead of wolf head makes it more of a classic design poster.

He's more scary than the movie version. At the very least it should be the model for Marvel's Werewolf by Night movie.
