Judge's Favorite has been award to Santi and his X-ploration entry. TheXPlace team quickly fell in love with how friendly the miner is and how dramatic the gemstones were that formed the X.
The Judges also favored the X-Ploration, and gave Santi high scores across the board resulting in a clear winner.
If you find yourself a fan of Santi, be sure to check out his TXP Profile. He is open to concept art positions.
For Fan Favourite, it wasn't as clear of a winner. The top three favorites were very close but in the end Costa came out on top. Such a warm and inviting place, THEXPLACE! Our team loved the idea of working in the middle of such a dense forest and still having access to so many other places in town. I particularly appreciated how Costa showed different concepts before landing on the physical place. It goes to show that your first and even second idea isn't always your best ideas.
Want to engage with more of Costa's work? Please check out Costa's TXP profile. He has amazing projects available and is seeking roles as a 3D Enviromental Artist.
I'd like to take a moment to congratulate the other participates and thank them for their hard work. Please check out their entries directly on their portfolios and read more about their thought process as well.
