Wacom competition winner
Three’s a crowd Emma Vieceli selects the reader whose work will appear in her new book
In a recent workshop, comic artist Emma Vieceli explained how to create tension in a group scene. We then invited you to add your own character to the image for the chance to
win a Wacom Intuos Manga and a place in the British artist’s forthcoming book.
The image shows two characters engaged in “quiet dispute.” It was your job to create an elf or dwarf to join this scene, paying particular attention to the design elements and racial traits mentioned within the workshop, and showing well thought-out expressions and body gestures on your new character.
After careful consideration, Emma has chosen her winner: US artist Bevin Akers.
“This is an accomplished dwarf,” Emma says, “clearly higher-ranking than Kolinarr, explaining why he’d be standing back
silently fuming as she tries to sort the situation out.
“Her pose speaks volumes about her opinion in this debate, and her colour scheme is beautifully matched. This is such a wonderful approach to creating a female version of the dwarven outfit, but so clearly matching the males. The repeated rings throughout the design bring it all into cohesion, and the tattoos are the cherry on the cake.”
Bevin wins an Intuos Manga and a place in Emma’s new book. Our two runners-up, Vanessa Erdenberger and John McGuinness, also receive an Intuos Manga.

This ‘accomplished dwarf’ by Bevin Akers impressed judge Emma Vieceli enough to award it with the top prize, and a place in her forthcoming book.
Vanessa Erdenberger’s runners-up design showed an elf male attempting to broker the peace in the scene.
Runner-up John McGuinness brings in another female dwarf, this time to add to the tension.
All three artists have won themselves an Intuos Manga tablet.
