Finally, the Krita Konqi Contest has drawn to a close!
Since it was first announced, we have received 19 entries, many of which were of quite good quality and show an interesting approach to the topic. That of course meant that picking a winner was quite a challenge.
After reviewing all the entries the jury - consisting of Nuno Pinheiro, David Revoy and Timothee Giet - selected Konqui, Katie and Friends by tysontan as the winner. tysontan’s work was not only well thought out, it was also an extremely cute and charming representation of Konqi. In addition, the way it was presented allows it to be used in many different settings, from avatars to groups, wallpapers, promotional material, and so on.
Thanks to tysontan and all the contest participants for their valuable input and great work! This contest alone is just a glimpse of what can be done by artists with Krita, as the works in the forum gallery show eloquently. So, if you are artistically inclined, why not give Krita a go and show the community what it is capable of?
