The moment you've all been waiting for, Adventure-ers! Our first Adventure Time contest winners from 2012 continue to be among our best-selling and best-loved design contest winners of all time, so we had a feeling we'd see big things with our second contest… and boy did you deliver! Over 1400 submitted designs from around the globe, and 280,000 ratings later… these five exceptional artists are our winners of the second Adventure Time Design Contest at WeLoveFine!
She says her love of video games, comics and dogs are sometimes a distraction from pursuing a career as an illustrator and designer, but give Blanca Vidal a hand - she pulled off a tremendous grand prize win in our contest with the scifi-themed design "Star Adventure"! Hailing from Lleida (near Barcelona) in Spain, Blanca works in a varied array of styles: from realistic portraits to fantasy concept art:
Do you know your ABC's of Adventure Time? Sebastian Pren sure does, and he wove the beloved characters of the show into the fabulous "Adventure!", chosen by Flame Princess herself, Jessica DiCicco! Sebastian, from Romania, spends lots of his free time working on his art, using various mediums of expression from digital illustration to wall painting:
It's a spooooky trek through the forest, rendered stark and beautiful in blacks, whites and greys - and it caught the eye of the actress who voices BMO, Niki Yang for her judges' pick! "Monotone Time" is Philip Meagher's winning entry; the Irish designer also works with a two-man design team called TeeTime!:
Everyone's favorite, complicated antagonist of Ooo delivered inspiration for Daniel "Dano" Brown, a California based father of two who wins Hot Topic's judges' pick in the contest for "Curse of the Crown"! Dano is a collector of old video games, a cartoon fan, and a "die-hard Adventure Time fan" who loves spending time playing with his kids:
The Ice King was an inspiring figure for Kelly Larson, as well, who takes home a runner-up prize with the beautiful "Another Adventure!" Kelly, a former Betsey Johnson graphic designer, is a stay-at-home mom (of 2 bulldogs) in Minneapolis who love to draw and paint cute and nerdy things:
Are ya thirsty?! Dig Grant Thackray's totally awesome runner-up design, "Grab Some Lemonade"; not to do so would be UNACCEPTABLE! Grant is 20, currently studying digital arts at the University of Oregon, and says his spirit animal is "a dinosaur riding a different dinosaur. I’m not telling you which types of dinosaur, so feel free to imagine the combination that pleases you most."
Each and every season, Pen Ward and the creative team of Adventure Time consistently reveal new, exciting and endearing characters, realms and adventures for Finn, Jake and all their friends in the Land of Ooo. It's no wonder that so many fans continue to be touched and inspired by the show, evident in all of our winners this time as well as before!
