Winning entry - Beast Wirt | Over The Garden Wall

Evan Gintsiak


Thanks everyone for the love and support I got with this piece! It's an awesome feeling seeing my work being selected this month, considering all the amazing art that is submitted by this awesome community! The second I finished watching Over The Garden Walls, I immediately wanted to try and recreate Wirt in a more realistic and dark setting, it's such a strong and inspiring show.

People rarely do children and the image's premise is super fascinating. It wants me to know more about the story and the world this character resides in. Technically well done and great capturing of design and aesthetic.
