The results of the Draw or Die: Ascension 23 Challenge are in and we can’t wait for you to see the winners!
Draw or Die is a study group where artists post their works and get critiques by their peers and industry professionals. Last month the challenge was to re-design a Mermaid. The winners were chosen by the Draw or Die team and Ascension 23 challenge Art Director Ross Tran.
We’ll confess, we’d only committed to featuring the winners of Ascension 22. Upon hearing about Ascension 23 and a brief discussion with Ricky Martinez, founder of the Draw or Die group, we decided to do a special “winners” showcase for this challenge … a nd then their were 70+ entries and we said “Oh crap!”. So this time around we took things a bit further. After posting the 5 winners of this challenge we went through the finals thread and picked out another 25 entries that we fell in love with. Scroll down below to see all 30 wonderful mermaid re-design entries.
And the winners are … *drum roll*
