Staff pick contest May 2019
Toni Bratincevic had his work cut out for him to choose just one winner from the array of great submissions in May 2019. But choose he must! Deceiver by Gregory Callahan showed a great sense of story and history between the two characters, as well as being a worthy sculpt! The runners-up were Marko Ivanovic, Yago de Amorim Dias, Hidehisa Miyagawa, and masierrap.
Winning entry - Deceiver
The Deceiver is the guy you've been warned about — intriguing but clearly untrustworthy. The portrait was designed to be full of gritty detail and symbolism. I spent a few years on this piece on and off. The overall look evolved but the message has always stayed the same "The pride of your heart has deceived you."
Congratulations to the runners up: Hidehisa Miyagawa, Marko Ivanovic, Yago de Amorim Dias, and masierrap.
