Wa­com com­pe­ti­tion win­ner

Three’s a crowd Emma Vieceli se­lects the reader whose work will ap­pear in her new book

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation -

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.
